After months of attempting to figure out who Pier Paolo Piccioli's doppelganger could be, Chic finally nailed it: Joey Jalleo, of course! The Standard's director of special projects does bear a striking resemblance to his could-be-uncle, the co-designer of Valentino. Love 'em both!

Anna Wintour was decorated in Paris yesterday by French president, Nicholas Sarkozy, with the Legion d'Honneur, the French equivalent of a knighthood. Anna wore a fresh-off-the-couture-runway Chanel to the ceremony, which brought out her fashion peeps Bernard Arnault, Donatella Versace, Alber Elbaz, Franca Sozzani, Riccardo Tisci, Stefano Pilati, Tommy Hilfiger and Karl Lagerfeld.

Sorry Karl, but this is a fashion collaboration that we're 100 percent on board with. Nicole Miller has partnered with nonprofit Indego Africa to launch a line of fair-trade shorts and sarongs to complement their existing line of textile bangles and woven bracelets. And they are cute! Indego Africa is a social enterprise that partners with more than 250 women artisans in Rwanda on a fair trade basis to help them build relationships and fill orders for high-end retailers. "I think people like wearing things that feel organic and not like they're produced in a factory somewhere," Miller said in a statement. You can purchase items online at Nicolemiller.com or at her boutique in Miami at 656 Collins Avenue. Fifteen percent of the proceeds are donated to Indego Africa.
