Barneys New York announced the launch of "The Window", a luxury lifestyle site (i.e. blog) on Barneys.com. It went live this week, although content is backdated to January 1. The Window will offer three regular weekly columns: The Pedestal, which will "examine" exclusive Barneys product, On the Fly, which will catch up with cultural figures and other relevant types, and The Big Bang, which will share "amusing and inspiring stories" from designers about how their careers were launched, beginning with Olivier Theyskens. Additional launch content will include features by Simon Doonan. Let's Bring Back author Lesley M.M. Blume is editing. You like?

Sant Ambroeus, Madison Avenue, a Monday night: not exactly a happenin' fashion scene. Usually, that is. Last night, a Chic spy spotted Carine Roitfeld dining en famille (avec Julia and Vlad). Will she be at shows? Discuss!

One never knows where a model ends up, but Chic was flabbergasted to hear that Christie Brinkley is joining the cast of Broadway's Chicago as Roxie Hart. Say wha? It's true! Brinkley is stepping into the role on April 4th that Bebe Neuwirth originated in the current revival. Other actresses who have played the role on Broadway include Ashlee Simpson, Brooke Shields, Melanie Griffin and Destiny's Child's Michelle Williams. Ya know...Your typical A-List. Just give us Kate Moss in A Streetcar Named Desire in 10 years, and we'll die happy.

The new issue of VMAN hits stands today, and Glee heartthrob Chord Overstreet gets an 8-page spread (!!!!) and his very first fashion shoot. How sweet. Chic has a hunch his publicist is going to be one of the hardest working flacks in Hollywood.

Who doesn't love a sneak peek? Tuleste Market sent us over a preview sketch of their collaboration with Ruffian to be revealed at their runway show on Friday. The shoe, called Smoke & Mirrors, will retail for $395, and it looks like an "f-me pump" if there ever was one. Tuleste Market's footwear launched to the trade at Compass this past fall and will start shipping to select retailers soon. Can't wait to see it in the flesh.
