>> BLOWING THE COVER — We've already surmised from photographic evidence that both Kate Moss and Keira Knightley have upcoming Vogue appearances — most likely covers — in the works, and now comes the rumor that Nicole Kidman has nabbed the July cover. Maybe that's what all the hoopla late last month about a photo shoot with Patrick Demarchelier was about . . . [Chic Report]
>> As promised, Marc Jacobs decided to go with models for his Fall 2008 campaign after a whirlwind tour of Victoria Beckham in bag, Victoria Beckham in box, et al. for Spring. Taking over the reins are veterans Kirsten Owen and Stella Tennant (who is perfect for the collection, with her punk edge), carrying on the seasons' trend for using well-established models over the age of 30 — both ladies are 38.
We're currently enamored of orange nail polish, and so, it seems, is Agent 99. According to network partner Cuffington, in the recent remake of the 60's classic, Get Smart, our favorite gun-toting secret agent sports chic, tangerine nails. The look is just in time for a hot summer. We know it's bold, but this isn't the coral-orange favored by leathery, Palm Beach ladies. We were thinking more like the orange creamsicle that's dripping down your arm, or the mimosas you dream of sipping poolside as the weekend draws near. It's fresh, fun, and totally indulgent. Good thinking, 99.
We're fans of Essie's Mini Shorts, from the newly released Neon Collection, and OPI's Mod About Brights collection, which includes shades ranging from mango to sunset orange. We advise keeping nails short for this look. Long, bright orange talons only work if you're a comic book villainess.
