Diet Coke Celebrates Gaultier Collaboration With Bottled Models

jean-paul-gaultier-night-and-day-diet-coke-installation-harvey-nichols-main.jpg

How cool is this?!!

On Monday, Diet Coke celebrated the launch of the new Jean Paul Gaultier designed bottles with a live art installation at Harvey Nichols in London.

The models were painted just like the Night & Day designs, one with a black corset (night) and the other with Gaultier’s signature Breton stripes (day).

As if this all wasn’t exciting enough, we hear that a third bottle, Tattoo, will be released later this year.

If you’re desperate to snag one of the collectible bottles, they're already on eBay for $79 a POP!

HA!

JPG Unveils Madonna-Inspired Diet Coke Bottles!!!

jean-paul-gaultier-madonna-inspired-diet-coke-bottles.jpg

The Cone-Bra meets diet cola! INSPIRED!

Ha! We are NOT complaining! We love Madonna, so that means we'll just have to stock up on these brand new Diet Coke bottles inspired by the singer!!

How did this idea even come to be??

Well, it turns out a certain French designer named Jean Paul Gaultier… you know, the man who happened to be the one who created Madge's iconic 1990 outfit… was recently appointed the creative director of Diet Coke!

What better way to kick off his time there than to create the new bottles, showing off the Queen of Pop's (Queen of Pop — GET IT??) signature look!

The thing is, though, it has no "official" ties. But come on. Clearly it's straight up in honor of Madonna.

The very worst part of this is that they won't be available in the U.S.!

Looks like we have a trip to the U.K. to make… Ha!

Raf Simons WILL Replace John Galliano At Dior!

raf-simons-to-replace-john-galliano-on-at-christian-dior-official-announcement-soon.jpg

The year long search for John Galliano's successor at Christian Dior is OVA!

According to New York Times writer Cathy Horyn, the fashion house will bring the months of speculation to an end this week by announcing Raf Simons as their new creative director.

The former Jil Sander designer confirmed the news on Monday in an interview, saying the position "feels right", but it will be a challenge.

He explained:

"…For me the strongest impact is the first 10 years of Dior and how to link that to the 21st century. Mr. Dior was very innovative during a short time span. And it was in the middle of the 20th century, a period I am very interested in, whether its linked to fashion, architecture or art. So I find it very challenging to rethink couture."

It'll be inneresting to see how Raf takes on couture this July and what he has in store for Dior, BUT we gotta ask…

Is Raf Simons the right choice???

Stella McCartney Debuts Official Team GB Olympic Uniforms

test-ap-post-picture.jpg

Stella McCartney had the honor of unveiling the Team GB uniforms for the 2012 London Olympics on Thursday.

For the collaboration with Adidas, Stella was inspired by the iconic image of the Union Jack flag.

She explained:

"I know I'm biased, but it really is one of the most iconic flags. I was also aware of the fact that it's something that might be overused in the build-up to the Olympics, in taxis, on cushions and mugs, so I wanted to do something different with it - but that was still respectful of its beauty. Actually, the colours of the Union Jack are similar to a lot of other flags and the athletes really wanted to feel identifiable as Team GB, so I just used different colours to say the same thing."

Two years in the making, the long awaited collection features sequined variations, covered leotards, and printed versions for T-shirts and jackets.

Nicely done.

Check out some more pictures of the designs (below) and tell us what U think!

Bill Gaytten Will Stick Around At Dior For Six More Seasons

christian-dior-signs-bill-gaytten-for-another-six-seasons.jpg

The head honchos at Christian Dior have finally made some sort of decision as to who will play creative director.

Rumor has it CEO Sidney Toledano was deep in talks with Raf Simons, but when the ex-Jil Sander creative director asked for too much money like Marc Jacobs, negotiations came to a screeching halt.

Instead of finding a replacement, Toledano took the easy way out and extended Bill Gaytten's contract for another six seasons.

Ugh. Why can't they pull the trigger already and make an actual decision?

If they're looking for another John Galliano they're not going to find it so why not just hire the man back already.
