Breaking! Anna Wintour uses black sharpies! Our beloved Vogue editrix spent the weekend in Japan signing autographs (as an editor does these days) at the Michael Kors celebration of Fashion's Night Out Tokyo. Has she ever looked more jolly? Must be the sushi! Anna recently told The Wall Street Journal that she wasn't just impressed with the style of the Japanese men and women on the streets, but the animals fared well: "There were a few very well-dressed dogs, I have to say."

Last night, Gucci presented the Los Angeles County Musuem of Art's inaugural Art + Film gala honoring Clint Eastwood and artist John Balderssari at LACMA. Naturally, Frida dressed guests Amy Adams, Camilla Belle, Kate Hudson, Zac Efron, John Hamm, Colleen Bell, Dominic Cooper, Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana, and Evan Rachel Wood, so Chic had a lot to work with when went into top secret deliberations to pick the coveted LOTD. And the winner is...Kate Beckinsale in a Cruise 2012 white crepe lady wrap strapless gown with gold and black flower embroidery on the belt. This should put a stop to the white after Labor Day quandary once and for all. Gorgeous!

Another case of the Mondays? Join the club. Kaelen designer Kaelen Haworth's playlist will help soldier you along.

1. M83, "Midnight City"
"Is this the song that was playing on How To Make It In America during the cab makeout sesh? In my head it is. And it's hot."

2. Florence + The Machine, "Spectrum"
"Should I put some Florence on one of these playlists? OK, fine."

3. Outkast, "Spottieottiedopaliscious" 
"This is my favorite Outkast song of all time. Such a smooth jam." 

4. Four Tops, "Bernadette"
"I'm a motown girl to the core. The Four Tops remind me of going for boat rides with my dad when I was young."

5. Neon Indian, "Psychic Chasms (Brahms Remix)"
"This song feels like summer, which I'm already longing for. Five p.m. darkness is not my thing."

6. The Kills, "Black Balloon" (Zelenka Bootleg) 
"The Kills are terminally cool, and Alison Mosshart has awesome style."

7. The Naked and Famous, "Young Blood"

"This song is just so catchy. It's used in the movie The Art of Flight very effectively, meaning I felt bad about being on the couch."

8. Shirley Ellis, "The Clapping Song"
"Just good old fashioned fun. Try not to smile when it's playing."

9. The Cure, "Lullaby"
"The melody is so good and the lyrics are so creepy! It's an unexpected mix, but I dig it."

10. Kanye + Jay Z, "Who Gon Stop Me"
"I'm going to this concert tonight. I just put this on here so I could say that."

Finally. Vanity Fair's darling fashion market director Michael Carl (@carlscrush is a must-read, people) has landed his own column on VanityFair.com. "Carl's Crush," as it's (predictably) known, appears to be mostly about fashion—his first installment takes on the "arm party" trend—but, of course, the musings are peppered with his signature wit. "When a colleague saw that I was wearing two bracelets and a watch all on the same wrist, she dryly observed: “I like your wrist party.” I calmly told her that I preferred to call it a wrist “situation,” and that I hated her haircut," he writes. Can't wait to see what's on deck. XOXO, Chic Report

What can turn Bergdorf Goodman's BG restaurant into a celeb-filled speakeasy?  Coquette Atelier, a new curated collection of vintage couture and accessories that's helmed by Rona Gaye Stevenson and Cassandra Grey (blushing bride of Brad, who happens to be the CEO of Paramount). The pristine restaurant was turned into a blusey speakeasy, featuring performances by Frieda Lee and Alice Smith. The likes of Kim Cattrall, Lorne Michaels, Woody Harrelson, Uma Thurman, and Andy Cohen showed up for the festivities, which perhaps constituted the liveliest goings-on at the store since...Fashion's Night Out!
