Truman Says

To some, Victoria Beckham appeared to have it all: a sexy soccer-star husband, a trio of male rapscallions to keep her busy, a disappearing waistline, a wildly successful clothing line and more money than God (but not as much as Oprah -- get it straight). But the one thing Posh Spice's fluttering heart truly desired remained out of reach: A baby girl to call her own and dress in the finest clothing that money could buy. So she an David kept going at it, under the sheets until, they finally made a little lady baby.

Well isn't this a delicious little rumor?

Sometimes fashion is so confusing. Everyone is thinking six months ahead, so even though we just finished fashion week for spring 2012 -- which won't hit stores for close to a year -- and it's hot and humid as a horse outside because, well, we're in the trenches of summer 2011, the fall 2011 advertisements and campaigns are starting to hit magazines. Seriously? We'd rather look at, well almost anything, other than flannel duffels or turtlenecks or leather jackets. So not what we want right now.

We came across designer Christian Pellizzari on accident, really, just looking through blogs and such, but when we saw his cheery, bright and sophisticated spring 2012 collection, we had to know more about the young designer, who has worked for the likes of Vionnet before branching out on his own. We emailed over a few questions and he promptly replied -- and made us even bigger fans than we were before.

Miuccia Prada has confessed on numerous occasions, even to us here at Out, that she enjoys finding the beauty in things that are typically seen as ugly or unattractive.

Do you approach designing for women differently than designing for men? Is yes, how so?

While Chanel was dark and moody, Dior was colorful yet off-kilter and Givenchy was angelic and sexual, Jean Paul Gaultier's couture runway was by far the most interesting to us. First of all, he played with his eternal obsessions of blurred gender roles (men in feathered skirts? Check. And corsets? Check. Andrej Pejic as both a man and a woman? Double check.) along with his preternatural talents with regard to tailoring and stunning, hand-crafted embellishments.

Last night, at Manhattan's exclusive clubhouse The Norwood, director Lina Plioplyte screened her fifteen-minute documentary The Guts of Duckie Brown about Steven Cox and Daniel Silver, the duo behind the cult menswear label. Like a Noël Coward pair, the on-screen partners' bickering is more loving than most cinematic romantic professions. Perhaps one of our favorite moments of the doc is when the pair, seen below, is asked -- yet again -- the inspiration behind their latest collection.
