Lanvin x H&M

Posted in Events, Fashion, Shopping by Michelle on September 2, 2010

Are you  f*****g kidding me? Whoa. Just. Whoa. I’ll have to put this on my calender. Or on my wall – in neon yellow posterboard. November 20th!!

From Style.com :

Rumored yesterday, confirmed today, the latest designers to collaborate with H&M will be Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz and Lucas Ossendrijver. “I have said in the past that I would never do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public. This has been an exceptional exercise, where two companies at opposite poles can work together because we share the same philosophy of bringing joy and beauty to men and women around the world,” Elbaz said in a release this morning. The collections—both womenswear and menswear—will hit 200 stores worldwide beginning on November 20 in the United States. The collection will be revealed in a short film released November 2. More as we get it.

FELA! is now on Broadway and in previews till Nov. 20. You can score tickets for $50.00 a pop or  $27.00 rush tickets 2 hrs before curtain time. The actual opening is November 23.

This new musical is based on the life of Fela Kuti. From Wikipedia:

Fela Anikulapo Kuti (15 October 1938 – 2 August 1997), or simply Fela, was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist musician and composer, pioneer of afrobeat music, human rights activist, and political maverick.[1] James Brown cited him as one of the originators of funk.

The show covers Fela’s life in music, politics, and death.

Estee Lauder helps you with your Facebook

Posted in Events by Michelle on October 13, 2009

“Estée Lauder will help you with your Facebook photo. They’ll be holding events around the country where you can meet with a professional makeup artist who will give you a makeover designed for the site you have in mind, ie: LinkedIn, OKCupid, MySpace. Then a professional photographer will take your profile picture. This idea is hilarious, and we’re surprised no one has thought of it before. They’ll be at Bloomingdales in New York on October 16. It’s really time we updated that Orkut page.” [Style.com]

Is that both Bloomingdale’s locations?
