Shirley Maclaine and Audrey Tatou will both play Coco Chanel (in separate projects) and now a London rumor pins Jude Law down for the lead role in Halston, an upcoming biopic. The movie would be produced by Harvey Weinstein, who recently bought the Halston label, and hired Tamara Mellon and Rachel Zoe to helm the hems of the vintage brand. It seems like a brilliant seaming of Weinstein's familiar film power with his new fashion outing, especially since the Halston show is one of February's most anticipated runways - okay, really it's one of the most anticipated front rows, with Weinstein acolytes likes Anne Hathaway and Gwyneth Paltrow expected to raid the nascent Halston sample closet for outfits. If Jude Law seals his movie role before then, he'd probably be expected to attend, too - but would that prevent another Weinstein-friendly starlet, Sienna Miller, from also arriving on the scene?
Jude Law's Sister Natasha Created Mulberry's Awesome SS2011 Invites
NYFW invites have started pouring in and so far, one stands out above the rest in terms of scale, style, and sheer adorable-ness: Mulberry's show and party invites (they came as a set). The invite to the show is an adorable line drawing of a pug with a Mulberry dog collar. His owner? A beautiful silhouetted line drawing of a girl in a flirty ruffled dress, her braided hair in a ponytail and cinched with a hot pink bow. She's the party invite, and she stands about two feet tall when all of her adjustable limbs are lined up. We thought the drawings looked a little Garance-like, but Garance is more minimalist with her line figures. The charming invites are the handy work of artist Natasha Law, Jude's big sis. Law is known for her sexy fashion-y line figure and clothing drawings. Her works are often color-blocked and focus in on sections of the female figure. We're big fans.
