Someone's started a rumor that Sarah Jessica Parker'll be the new face of Halston. Let's count all the reasons we bet on never. 1. Halston is a disaster. Though we're sure Marios Schwab will end its curse and do something brilliant, a brand can't have a face for a collection that doesn't exist (yet). 2. Last time Harvey chose a face, Rachel Zoe, to be associated with a brand, it failed. It really, really failed. 3. As if fashion wasn't sick enough of celebrity, whatever comes down Lindsay Lohan's runway for Ungaro this week will probably put off even the most celeb-friendly of the fashion world for a moment. 4. It'd be silly to pay Sarah Jessica Parker to be the face of a brand when Carrie Bradshaw's been photographed wearing it all over Manhattan, for free, and will be seen on every screen in the same dresses come May. What'd we miss?
Harvey Weinstein, Marios Schwab Exit Halston
WWD reports Harvey Weinstein and Marios Schwab are out at Halston, following news earlier this week that Sarah Jessica Parker was also exiting the company. (Former CEO Bonnie Takhar, who was part of the Parker/Weinstein group, left late last year.)
