Who Loved Jessica's Elle Cover?

Who gets all gushy when asked about Jessica Simpson? John Varvatos! The two are appearing as judges on NBC's Fashion Star (which brought home a blah rating of 1.6/4 last night), and he just went on and on and on with compliments for the upcoming mommy! 

"The other day I opened up my door and there was the NY Post. I picked it up and it was Jessica with the pictures from Elle and she looked amazing," he told The Daily last night at the premiere party hosted by Macy's in New York. "I immediately e-mailed her and said, “I just woke up to the most gorgeous sight. You naked on the cover.” She looked gorgeous. She’s going to be an amazing mom. She’s such a family person. Her mother is with her every single day, her mother travels with her everywhere, and she was on the set every day. Her dad is her manager. Her girlfriends work with her. She’s just this big family thing. She cares less about being a superstar than she cares about doing it the way she is. She could have big outside management and all this stuff, but she wants to do it this way. The closest family I’ve ever seen so I just know she’s going to be the greatest mom."

Consider our attention...grabbed. Online auction haus Heritage Auctions is launching weekly sales of vintage designer goodies, and the starting bid is a mere dollar. Mais oui—we're talking Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and more. We sort of hate to spread this news, considering the likelihood that the competition will get a bit more fierce (hands off this Kaiser Konfection, please!), but we do it all for you, Chic loyalists. These beauties will go online tonight, and a new batch will be unveiled each and every Tuesday. Clearly, this is gonna be habit-forming.

Yummy! This warm weather is making us hungry for skin-baring, and we get plenty of it in Orlebar Brown's sexy and (wait for it!) behind-the-scenes video for the Spring/Summer resort and swimwear collection. If beautiful people prancing around wearing very little in Ses Salines, Ibiza is your thing, hit that play button, dolls.

Nicole Farhi: Please, Talk More!

We don't read enough about Nicole Farhi, but the Telegraph interviewed the 65-year-old British-based French designer, and we're in L.O.V.E! Here are some highlights from writer Sabine Durrant's revealing and candid conversation...

Fun fact! "I am, what do you call it? A freak...a control freak."

On Anna Wintour: "She has been to every show of mine...That she comes, it is a sign you are still the representation of the best."

Blogging isn't her thing: "Who reads them? I don't know where they find the time."

She has views on interns! "When I was young, I learned for nothing. It was how I learned. Now you can have an intern for two weeks. What do you learn in two weeks? Nothing. So that is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous."

She's anti-celeb! "What do they show you in the papers after a fashion show? Not the clothes, but the celebrities who are being paid to sit at the show. It is so unprofessional and that you can say. They will all hate me for it. I don't give a s- because I think it is ab-om-in-able. I have never paid a celebrity, and I will never do it."

Being a Grandma isn't quite her thing. "I like spending time with them, but I am not the sort of granny who will babysit when they are asleep. What is the point? I remember my daughter and I would be in New York and she'd say, "Mammy, can you babysit tonight?" and I say, "I pay a babysitter; I want to go out, too."'

PRADA! PRADA! PRADA! Miuccia's Spring/Summer lookbook "Real Fantasies" is out exploring "the nostalgia of hot rodding, golfing, picnicking, the space race, and other wholesome past times." (Their words!) Told through a sequence of 100% handmade collages with music by Frédéric Sanchez, this video "pulls the user into a realm of hyper reality." (Again, not our words.)
