Chic has a confession! Stella McCartney's pre-fall 2011 collection made us swoon like a preteen at a Bieber concert. Gone were the popped-collar denim separates and Hampton-approved prints of spring. (Sad? Non!) In their place was a modern bent on classic Stella-isms we've always adored: boxy double-breasted overcoats, lacy party frocks, mannish blazers tailored to sophistication, and knit sweater dresses swathed in vermillion, midnight, camel, and emerald. For fall, expect more ladylike dressing from Ms. McCartney, accented with edgey metal trimmed handbags (like her famous Falabella in "ox blood" crimson) and capes. Lots of capes!

This clip of the divine Coco Chanel claims to be the first television interview with her in her office. (Understanding French will probably make this more interesting, but still.) This footage was taken following a presentation of the 1959 collection by Chanel's celebrity model, Marie-Helen Arnaud, among others. "It's already outdated," she sighs. "It's been a week." Magnifique!

If  you know of a Mommy who needs to step up her fab, Alice + Olivia's Stacey Bendet is here to help. This week, she shares her Mommy must-haves. 

"The peplum dress. Perfect for a meeting at school for the mom who doesn’t exactly go the suit route, like me.
Something metallic For mom’s night out!
A Proenza bag. I like any bags that come in bright colors. This is great for holding small accessories. OK, it's hardly functional, but every mom needs a treat.
Celine tote. Because it holds everything.
Prada Platforms. Much preferred to stilettos when chasing a rather quick toddler.
Big ass glasses. I like the new Victoria Beckham ones---perfect for those hungover, tired mommy mornings. No sweetie, mommy isn’t sick, she just has an eye ache that lots of coffee will fix.
Snack trap. Curbs your hunger urge without resulting in a bag covered in Cheerio crumbs.  bs.
CANON POWERSHOT S95 digital camera. My favorite point-and-shoots for capturing moments in pic or video format.
A Louise Green hat. It's a fast way to look totally fabulous at any hour of the day!
Lip gloss. A must-have at all times. I love M.A.C's Hello Kitty pink.
HomeoplasmineInstant fix for any skin issues. Eloise calls it 'boo boo cream,' I call it the instant facial.
Layers and layers of jewelryToddler entertainment. Start with a silver Philippe Audibart cuff, glam it out with pieces from the bead and jewelry stores on Sixth Avenue (in the thirties).
Pylones umbrella. For when it rains and if you are a freak like moi who hates the sun it doubles as a colorful parasol."
