Aaahh, if only the average person were so glam at jury duty. Marc Jacobs wore a kilt and carried a Birkin to jury duty earlier this week. Word on the street is that he served only two days before being let go.

Renowned Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field teamed up with Skyy Vodka to produce a limited-edition bottle to coincide with the opening of the Sex and the City 2 movie. Aiming to marry the glamour of the movie with the sophistication of Skyy cocktails, the new chic bottle is sure to become an instant collector’s item! (My bottles will be, ehem, empty, but still.)

Ralph Lauren opened up his first flagship store (and restaurant!) in Paris’s historic Saint Germain district. At 23,000 square feet, it features the full men’s and women’s collections, as well as accessories.
‘I wanted to create a unique environment that captures the glamour, culture and the artistic spirit of the Paris that I have fallen in love with. Now, with this store opening, in the most romantic part of the city, I finally feel I have been able to tell my whole story in Paris.’ said Ralph Lauren.
Even if you’re not a fan of the clothes, go to check out the amazing 16th century architecture— the facade features classical French architecture in lime stone with carvings and ornaments. The interior is Rococo style, with ‘Versaille’ style flooring, plaster moulding and carvings.

Wallpaper* magazine is giving you the chance to play art director for the day and custom-make your own Wallpaper* cover for the August issue.
You’ll join the ranks of Philippe Starck, Zaha Hadid and Anish Kapoor – all of whom are previous Wallpaper* cover artists.
Just register before the 17th May and Wallpaper*, in association with Rolex, will give you access to the special online cover application. Creative luminaries James Joyce, Nigel Robinson, Hort, Anthony Burrill and Kam Tang have contributed a wide selection of images, graphics and patterns for you to choose from. You can scale, rotate, colour and assemble these any way you like to create your masterpiece.
Your cover will front your own copy of the ‘Handmade’ special, an issue in which Wallpaper* has pushed the boundaries of bespoke design. They’ve commissioned their favourite designers, artists and craftsmen to create unique furniture, fittings, fashions and more – the fruits of which will be on show at the Brioni house in Milan during this year’s Salone del Mobile. But, for the cover, they’re handing the reins to you.
When you’ve perfected your design, Rolex will also invite your artistic direction on the back cover. You can choose from nine different Rolex advertising creatives to complete your personalized issue. This will arrive when your usual August issue is due.
Registration deadline: 17th May

1. Antonio Berardi showed a collection that ranged from wearable (Mad Men-inspired knee-length silhouettes with modern asymmetrical touches) to the mostly unwearable but still beautiful (sheer tops and dresses).
2. Fall florals in slightly lighter autumnal tones of rust and grey-blue ruled the Erdem runway, along with textured lace, tiered ruffles and prints of leaves and bird.
Roksanda Illincic shows a collection with pieces that were borne a marriage of the 40s and 70s, replete with fluid lines, drapey blouses and longer skirts and dresses.
Peter Pilotti’s design duo shows infinitely wearable and modern suits and separates with leather and tweed paneling, in addition to digitally-created subtle print jersey dresses.
Jonathan Saunders sent sporty modernity down the runway in incarnations of shiny paneling, fabric fringe and over-sized raincoats atop longer skirts (some with paper bag waistbands) and dresses.
Christopher Bailey’s mastery for Burberry Prorsum was live-streamed online AND available for pre-order instantaneously on the Burberry web site. No wonder–the coats and jackets were at the same time current and classic. If you missed the show, you can catch it again here.

For some reason, an esteemed blog such as Fashion Makes Me Horny didn’t get invited to all of the shows at New York Fashion Week last week. Why? Aren’t we along the same lines as Vogue, Elle and W? Anyway, lucky for us, we were able to sneak in with one of our photog friends at Jen Kao’s show at Milk Studios.
FMMH: I think I’m on the list. [I wasn’t.]
Heartless fashion PR girl: Sorry, I don’t see your name. Who are you with?
FMMH: Fashion Makes Me Horny
Heartless fashion PR girl: Who?
Photog friend: She’s with me. Here are my credentials.
Heartless PR girl: Oh, OK, here’s your press pass.
So, thanks to Chervine, we were able to sneak into Jen Kao’s show and slip into the second row! Yay! Check out the amazing shots of clothes imbued with sexiness, precision and fluidity.

QVC threw a “Shop the Runway” event this past weekend during NYC’s Fashion Week in Bryant Park to celebrate the debut of Rachel Zoe’s eponymous line and Isaac Mizrahi’s ISAACMIZRAHILIVE! line. Shoppers could avoid the frustration of having to wait two seasons to buy what they see on the runway by new items straight from the tents!
Notable attendees: Rachel Zoe, Isaac Mizrahi, Busy Phillips from Cougar Town (who was wearing the cape below in black) and Kelly Rutherford from Gossip Girl.
Here are two of the most popular looks:
