Naomi! Liu! Sean O! and more….Tao Okamoto’s Save Japan event is finally here. See items donated by the legendary Naomi Campbell, top models Jenny Shimizu, Heidi Mount, Liu Wen, Sean O’Pry and industry figures like François Nars, Cecilia Dean, Marie Chaix, Phillip Lim, Catherine Malandrino, Thakoon, Pamela Love and many more to raise money for the disaster in Japan. Though the location is called Saturday, the event is actually on Sunday, the 29th. Though we’re dying to see all the fashion items donated by such an eclectic and fabulous crowd, even better may be the chance to see some of these faces on Sunday pitching in for such a great cause. See you Sunday!

The Imagist has images of Ellen von Unwerth shot by the iconic Guy Bourdin, before she became a top photographer.

Lady Gaga and Karl Lagerfeld‘s t-shirts are our favorites in the Uniqlo t-shirt benefiting the Japanese Red Cross, available next month. Which is yours?

We love Mcqueen as much as the next person but it’s still fascinating to read about his dark side.

Are you Twitter? You’re not? Maybe that’s better, says the NYTimes. Meanwhile the entire MDC crew is: @themoskovic, @hisssquad, @ninjasze, @sansartifice, @fsorrenti, @jonathanshia.

Along with Chanel Iman‘s recent appearance in DKNY’s Be Delicious, replacing Lara Stone, Eva Mendes is the new face of Thierry Mugler’s Angel, replacing Naomi Watts (WWD subscription required). That makes 2 women of color entering the high fashion fragrance game. Diversity, one step at a time.

January 10th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello create a distorted world for Numero China. Tao Okamoto stars in the duo’s chapeau centric story, wearing in a series of outlandish looks by stylist Tim Lim; bold prints and strong colors by Missoni and Prada play a major part in the story as does a retro 70s vibe that adds to the off kilter feel.
