>> INSIDER WIRE —Marc Jacobs wasn't able to make to the Cinema Society screening of He's Just Not That Into You along with boyfriend Lorenzo Martone, but he was there in spirit. Martone wore a bright green Henry Holland shirt that read "Do me in the parc Marc": "I thought because he's not with me that it would be perfect to wear. I hope he sees it or hears about it." [FWD]
>> Isabel Toledo may have shelled out for that lemongrass fabric she used to make Michelle Obama's inaugural day dress — it rings in at $500 a yard — but it's Jason Wu who will be reaping the Fashion Week benefits of an Obama nod.
In fact, Wu's show "might be the hottest ticket in town" — right after Marc Jacobs — according to The New York Observer. Elle is sending seven more staffers than it did to Wu's Spring 2009 show — including editor-in-chief Robbie Myers, creative director Joe Zee, and style director Kate Lanphear. Bergdorf Goodman is bringing its entire buying team, in addition to fashion director Linda Fargo and senior women's fashion director Roopal Patel, who attended last season. Anna Wintour is sure to attend again, especially since she was already front row for the Spring 2009 show.
Designer Loris Diran is poised to open his first brick and mortar store in New York later this week, right in the epicenter of the Bowery's fledgling menswear scene. With Rogan, John Varvatos, and Billy Reid all having recently opened shops nearby, it's safe to say the Bowery isn't what it was when Diran was hanging out there as a teenager. We stopped by the store earlier this week to check out the modern decor scheme and chic tailored looks from Diran's Spring 2009 collection. Check out our snapshots below.
>> THE MODELIZER —Outside of her Estee Lauder contract obligations, Hilary Rhoda makes a rare appearance these days — she doesn't have a showcard for the upcoming Fall 2009 season, so it looks like chances of seeing her on the runway are slim. She is, however, the face of Eres Spring 2009, and in the running for the as-yet-undetermined Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover — joining her inside the issue are newcomer Ariel Meredith, Cintia Dicker, and Anne Vyalitsyna.

>> We've heard a good deal about the innards, but now we've got some visuals to go along with it. Love magazine's first issue is all about the "Fashion and Fame," according to three newly-released previews — which feature Iggy Pop, a violet-haired Iris Strubegger, and Agyness Deyn as Queen Elizabeth II. It's only two weeks now, and Katie Grand is already planning a big launch on Feb. 19 when the magazine comes out. Those attending London Fashion Week will be able to score the first issue — they'll be handed out at various shows.
