Style Scoop: SJP Channels Carrie Bradshaw, Choupette’s Modeling Debut, Louis Vuitton’s Miami Exhibition


Sarah Jessica Parker is really tugging on our heartstrings with how much she’s alluding to another Sex and the City movie. The actress posted a photo to her Instagram account in which she’s sitting on a set of stairs while arranging SJP Collection shoes. The caption reads, “It was take your @sjpcollection shoes to work day. #longdayforCarrie #whewwwwthosesteps #runninginheels #taxi!” So, SJP, is it true?! [Women’s Wear Daily]

So much for the supermodel-on-a-car recipe for advertising. Tina Müller, chief marketing officer of carmaker Opel, tapped Karl Lagerfeld and his cat Choupette to bring a different breed of model to the firm’s 2015 promotional calendar. Lagerfeld photographed the car, whose poses involved gazing into the rear-view mirror and getting her paws on the steering wheel. Even for a cat, modeling is hard work. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Louis Vuitton is presenting Pierre Paulin and Herman Miller’s long-lost, unrealized project that they thought up in 1972. The French designer and American furniture manufacturer inspired a satellite exhibition for the Miami Design District that will be displayed December 2-7. The exhibition coincides with the publication of Nadine Descendre’s Pierre Paulin: l’homme eh l’oeuvre, a 240-page tome on Paulin’s life. [Women’s Wear Daily]

The “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibit is headed for London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, and will showcase an additional 30 garments and a new section that looks at the shows McQueen put on in Nineties London. Already, 16,000 people have bought tickets ahead of its March opening and even more are sure to show. The London section will showcase “in a way, more raw-er pieces—when there was no production and [McQueen] was making a lot of the pieces himself.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

Sophie Theallet’s designs will make their cinematic debut in the film The Dressmaker, starring Kate Winslet. The designer is creating two couture gowns to be worn by Winslet in the movie, which is based on Rosalie Ham’s novel about an Australian dressmaker who trains under Madeleine Vionnet in Paris in the 1950s and then returns to the outback to transform the women of her town with her designs. It will begin filming in rural Victoria, Australia next month. [Women’s Wear Daily]

Jewelers Elizabeth Doyle and Pamela Doyle presented the second exhibit of their in-store Vault series, “Sentimental Rings: From Birth to Death and In-Between” on Wednesday.
