We love clips that are too weird to really understand. Some crazy kids (Marios Schwab, photographer Ben Charles Edwards, Piers Atkinson of Daily Rubbish) somehow convinced Zandra Rhodes (or was it the other way around?) to star in a three-part series of videos that could only be described as...surreal? The series, "Chapter 7: Eat Your Chiffon" culminates in a dinner party filmed in Zandra's own personal penthouse. Watch the first of the triptych, above, if you want to be kind of freaked out - and make sure to catch the second if you want to know that Zandra once dressed Freddy Mercury, that she wishes she could dress Dita von Teese, that she knows how to cook what one can only assume is a witches' brew, etc. The third clip won't be out until next week - and we hear it's supposed to include some "suprise guests"...

Halston Poaches from BCBG--More Changes at Both Labels
And the musical chairs continue. Former BCBG Max Azria Group president Ben Malka is Halston's new chairman and CEO, WWD is reporting. Malka, a former medical student, brings 16 years of experience in the trenches at BCBG, including a close relationship with Bloomingdale's. According to the trade, Bloomie's will carry Halston Heritage for the first time this fall. Not a bad score for a brand that's had a hard time re-establishing an identity. Halston is still without a creative director for its designer collection since Marios Schwab's contract wasn't renewed, but there's speculation that Marie Mazelis, the former creative director of BCBG, may come on board at Halston.
