Thom Browne and Kenneth Cole attended the kick-off party of amFAR's New York Inspiration gala on Thursday night. It was a party to celebrate a party, which we can get on board with. The designers joined Richard Chai, Robert Geller, Cheyenne Jackson, Josh Wood and GQ's brand new fashion editor Lance Lin in the penthouse suite at the Mondrian Soho. The gala dinner will be held on June 14th at The Museum of Modern Art and will honor James Franco (Google him! He's really fascinating!) and feature a men's fashion runway show with original pieces from designers Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Michael Bastian, Rick Owens and others.

Stacey Bendet's Decorating Tips

Mommy Expert! Mommy Expert!

We would never expect Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet to have an ordinary room for her 3-year old daughter Eloise. Not our Stacey! She shares her tips on how to make the bedroom more fun for your baby. 

 

"Baby blue, pastel pink, and little bunnies and ruffles on gingham are just not my deal. Here are some ways to create a more dynamic room for your baby or really a child of any age! 

 

1. A slide. Who says a playroom has to be some foam flooring and cabinets filled with books and toys? You can easily create a mini playground or climbing structure indoors with a little carpentry help! Ok, maybe a lot of carpentry help, but if you have the space to do it, why not?!

 

2. Custom pillows. I love bright-colored pillows and it seems the interior decorators and pillow stores of the world just don’t really feel the same way, so, I find fun fabrics in bold bright colors and a seamstress to make the pillow cases. You can buy an inexpensive pillow from anywhere or just use an old one for the inside! For the less ambitious, CB2, Urban Outfitters, and Jonathan Adler do make some fun colored pillows!

 

3. Refurbishing a rocking chair. I am not so into the baby mod glider things. I found a vintage rocker and lacquered it in a bright purple and made a fun polkadot cushion for the seat.

 

4. Lacquering cabinets. Most baby and toddler furniture comes in walnut or white, so I took 2 of the drawers out of our dresser and painted them a bright yellow. Much more fun and unique now!

 

5. Colorful picture frames. These can brighten up any wall! In Eloise’s room I bought fun frames from Jon Murphy, of course I repainted some of them (basic spray paint works) to make the colors even more vibrant. We did purple, yellow, neon pink, and orange.

 

6. Painting shelves. A little trick is to buy a basic white shelving unit and then to lacquer it in a fun color. You can even use a set of old shelves but a bold color pop can really add personality to a room. I personally like neon pink but any color goes.

David Beckham Has It Covered

David Beckham sneezing is good enough reason for us to write something about him, but Victoria's main man covers the 13th edition of Fantastic Man so we actually have a legit reason to feature him. Color us happy. Alasdair McLellan shot Beck's first editorial in over a year (WHY????!) in a pie and mash shop in East London. Beckham tells the mag that living out of England for the last eight or nine years, he misses the pie and mash shops that he grew up on. We would normally find that totally dull and boring, but David said it so now it's just fascinating!

International superstar, uh, Tori's mom Candy Spelling isn't typical Chic territory, but then this picture came along. She attended the opening of the Broadway revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying last night and just worked that step and repeat. Who was Candy wearing? We don't know yet. Does it matter?

Talbots for twentysomethings? Say what?! Creative director Michael Smaldone, previously of Anne Klein, has been revamping the brand for the past three years and Chic is saying, "Oui, oui!" Fall 2011 brought on a slew of Old Hollywood-inspired ensembles complete with high-waisted herringbone trousers, breezy pleated skirts, chunky knits, and animal print separates. This season Smaldone channels Katharine Hepburn, simultaneously pleasing Talbots' core customer while tempting a younger attroupement. Retail deliveries are scheduled for August through October.
