Call your investment banker friends, stat!  Victoria's Secret Angels' Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson & Erin Heatherton will be making a special appearance at SoulCycle in Tribeca on Tuesday, July 12th. Pray tell? The girls will be cycling to benefit Pelotonia- an annual grassroots bike tour that raises funds for The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center -James Cancer Hospital, one of the nation's leading cancer research facilities and you (or your investment banker friends) can watch. 4 levels of tickets will be available from $1000 to $2500 with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Pelotonia. Participants will also have a chance to bid on prizes while the girls cycle, including (get this!) a pair of angel wings and photo ops with their fave angel. Victoria's Secret will match every dollar raised from the event. Tickets are going quick, quick, quick.

Neapolitan owner Kelly Golden concludes her worldwide Resort 2012 tour with a rave review! Apparently, the Midwest is going to be looking Chic-er than ever.

"After nearly a month of presentations, the Resort 2012 market is finally wrapping up.  As a retailer, I have always LOVED this market because of the early deliveries, the long shelf life of the product, and the great pops of color added to the floor during fall. This particular season, the Resort market was the strongest I've seen in years! There was such a newness to the collections that you will absolutely be investing in new pieces come November. Surf and scuba were huge themes seen throughout many collections, including Jason Wu and Derek Lam. Color-blocking, especially in bright neons, continued to be a must-have trend. I especially loved the color-blocked bags at Lanvin, Pierre Hardy and Bottega Veneta. Wedges and elevated platforms are my favorite shoes of the season. There were even incredible cocktail dress options (Lanvin, Naeem Khan, J Mendel, Peter Pilotto, Lela Rose...), which designers used to showcase during Spring runway. Resort is clearly no longer just for the island jet-setters..."

And the new face for Odd Molly's Spring/Summer collection 2012 is…Charlotte Kemp Muhl.  She replaces Helena Christensen, but isn't exactly a new face at the label. Kemp Muhl performed at their Spring/Summer 2011 show during New York Fashion Week with boyfriend Sean Lennon. Creative director Per Holknekt explains, "We saw her entertain live, singing and playing accordion with Sean at our show and we all fell in love." Photographer Warwick Saint shot the campaign in New York on Monday, but you'll have to wait until January to see it. It's never too early to start thinking about what you are going to wear next summer, right?

Anna Wintour appears to have recovered from Federer's brutal loss. She returned to the courts at Wimbeldon today to take in the women's semi-final between Sabine Lisicki and Maria Sharapova. Looks like our Anna is having quite a vacation.
P.S. Chic isn't normally your go-to place for sports news, but since we're on the topic...Sharapova won.
