Jennifer Lawrence Is Sleek In Calvin Klein

Jennifer Lawrence At The 2011

One of the first celebrities to hit the Oscar red carpet tonight was Jennifer Lawrence and she looked beautiful!

The Winter's Bone actress wore a bright red Calvin Klein Collection dress that was made for her by Francisco Costa.

Since her dress was very simple, Jennifer continued the minimalist theme with light makeup and a bangle bracelet.

Well done!

Calvin Klein Goes Clueless Again!

As if!

That Calvin Klein "dress" that was made famous by Alicia Silverstone's character Cher Horowitz in the hit movie Clueless is seeing a second life thanks to Confederacy co-owner Ilaria Urbinati.

The clothing retailer apparently "geeked out" after meeting CK's creative director Francisco Costa. Ilaria explains:

"I went into a spazzy explanation of how my formative-years love of Calvin was partly based on the little white Calvin mini dress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless. I re-enacted the entire scene for him (you know, 'Cher, what are you wearing?' 'A dress!' 'Says who?' 'Calvin Klein!' 'Well, go put something over it!' 'Duh, I was just going to!' and then she comes out with the clear trench). So of course I said, Francisco, you need to remake that dress."

And he did!

The mini is now being sold in both white and red at Confederacy stores for a little less than $1,000.

Designers Make Mini Coopers Fashionable For Charity!

Cute!

Kenneth Cole, Diane von Furstenberg and Calvin Klein's Francisco Costa have put their fashionable pedals to the metal for the 2010 Life Ball in Vienna.

The three designers have added their own touches to Mini Coopers, which will be auctioned off on July 17th. The money raised will go towards fighting HIV/AIDS.

Sounds like some pretty sweet rides for a great cause!

Diane Keeps Her Clothes On For CK

Shocking, but gorgeous!

Rather than bringing the seks, Diane Kruger is looking very angelic and virginal in the new ad for Calvin Klein's new fragrance, Beauty.

Quite a change from the usual CK ads with sweaty, greasy models humping each other!

The label's creative director Francisco Costa explained the concept during a dinner held at the flagship store on Madison Avenue:

"Certainly sex is in our DNA, but this fragrance speaks to a different audience [than scents like Obsession and Euphoria.] It is very much the spirit of Collection — elegant, sophisticated, timeless and beautiful — and designed to appeal to a more mature customer. This is a woman in her 40s, who is self-assured and secure."

Catherine Walsh, senior vice president of American Fragrances at Coty adds:

"It’s very elegant, and that’s why we wanted to work with Diane. This woman we’re trying to portray — she’s not someone who doesn’t have experiences in her life. We wanted this woman to be worldly and well-traveled, a confident woman and a woman who had strength."

We like the idea. And as much as we like seeing half nekked models, their new ad is refreshing. Hopefully it will appeal to their new audience.

What do U think???

Calvin Klein Won't Cast Size 0s

wenn5375226_e.jpg

And so it continues.

Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa recently explained at a panel discussion that he prefers to cast real women to wear his clothes on the runway and it looks like he's sticking to his guns!

Costa has said he will no longer be casting size 0-2 models as he thinks they're "a little too formulaic".

Maybe that explains why Lara Stone is one of the label's faces!

Instead, CK will be focusing on sizes 2-4.

Sure, it may not be what the average size of real women, but it's a start!

It was just supposed to be random modification of a dress that Francisco Costa had created for the fall, but will now be sold in stores. You can get the dress for $1,695 at Calvin Klein or Saks Fifth Avenue next week.

Do U wanna dress like PeePee?
