At long last, the Sharper Image store on Madison Avenue is gone for good—and a veritable fash-emporium has taken its place. Michelle Smith and husband/business partner Andy Oshrin toasted the very first Milly flagship last night at 900 Madison Avenue, as preppily-clad pretties literally spilled out onto the sidewalk. "It's totally overwhelming!" smiled Smith, who didn't look all that flummoxed, despite the crowds (and the heat they created). "We spent so much time getting the merchandising just right—where should the cash wrap be? What should the dressing rooms look like? But in the last few weeks, it totally came together." Friends like Allison Aston and Amanda Ross came out to toast the brand—and support the Central Park Conservancy's Playground Partners in the process. Bien fait! Now: What city will Milly grace next?

Ivana Trump making an appearance at the amFAR Gala in Cannes last night just feels right. The American businesswoman (Source: Wikipedia) looks like she spent an afternoon in the sun, but we don't think she put enough SPF on her chest. Tsk, tsk! Everything else about this shot is the epitome of glamour and sophistication. Gorgeous, darling. Just gorgeous!

Courtney Love whispering a secret to Karl Lagerfeld on the red carpet at amfAR's gala in Cannes is the kind of moment that we live for. What in the heavens could these two be whispering about? Courtney's got mischief in her eye, and Karl looks, uh, like Karl. Astute Love/Lagerfeld followers (we know there are legions) will recall that it was recently revealed that the Kaiser had some opinions on her style choices at the beginning of her career. "What are you wearing?" he said. "A tutu? I see a tutu. You're never going to get laid in a tutu." Good to see they can laugh about it—now.

Bar Refaeli should head to Cannes more often! The recently single model has turned it out this week, and she won the style derby again last night at the amfAR gala in this Roberto Cavalli number. She raised the bar (ha!) in a beaded and feathered champagne gown that was classic Cavalli. We approve!

Hell on Heels: Sasha's Stuff Goes Missing!

Chic's intrepid shoe chronicler, UsWeekly fashion director Sasha Charnin Morrison, reports back with some ultra-distressing news. Pray for her!

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES LOST MY LUGGAGE!
"I was traveling back to New York from my Los Angeles book-signing party at Coach last week. Total high. I flew in a lovely first class seat, non-stop from LAX to Newark. Upon arrival...no bag. Why did I check it? Because that's what you do when you're a fashionista and you need to travel with your stuff. I didn't have time to "edit" my looks. And it’s still on a milk carton. HAVE YOU SEEN THIS BAG?

So what's missing? It's a Tumi “jungle” medium hard case rolley bag. Aside from my favorite H&M green "Stella McCartney"-inspired coat, which is not available anymore, and cute notes from my kids?  YSL shoes, new Gucci shoes, Tom Ford for Gucci shoes, a Genevieve Jones fringed "Kate" bag, a  Chanel red velvet quilted bag, a Jamin Puech sequined purse, a YSL black bag with my monogram stamped inside, 2 pairs of Alexis Bittar earrings in gunmetal pavé, David Aubrey turquoise polished drop earrings, Ippolita rose gold hoops, 5-6 pairs of Claire's and Mandees earrings...OK, I can survive without those. Juicy lace-up sandals, Repetto black ballerinas...Oy! Three new Rachel Pally dresses! Three older, never-worn Rachel Pally dresses! One black slip dress, another fave! About 4-5 new jersey pieces from Wilt. M.A.C plugs. And a copy of my new book, Secrets of Stylists! This drama has eclipsed my happiness with the book. The only smart thing I did? Tweet pics to my bff and Twitter followers of some of the items in the case. I’ve been more socially media active with Continental customer care than with the world wide web!  And in my Tumi beauty kit: Lancaster self tanner, Prada Vetiver, M.A.C Greasesticks (not made anymore!), Dior mascara, M.A.C false lashes, Nars and M.A.C glosses...

The only funny thing? My husband suggested I send out tweets as the bag. So @SashasTumi is using the BronxZooCobra snake as inspiration. The bag has 28 followers."

Check out our Gallery for evidence of the missing goods. Sasha, stay strong!
