Ungaro Is Without A Designer AGAIN

That didn't take long.

Giles Deacon and Emanuel Ungaro have parted ways less than 2 years after being hired as the French fashion house's lead designer.

In case you forgot, Giles famously took over the job after the disastrous collaboration between then designer Estrella Archs and "artistic director" Lindsay Lohan.

The two said the decision was mutual and Ungaro's in-house team will be in charge of the S/S 2012 collection.

Heidi Klum's Top 10 Favorite Outfits

heidi-klum-favorite-outfits-through-the-years.jpg

She had a lot to choose from, but Heidi Klum was able to pick her 10 favorite outfits she's worn throughout the years.

The supermodel and Project Runway hostess says of her selections:

Logically, dressing for a red carpet event should be as simple as choosing a pretty frock off the rack and heading out the door… but, in an age of 'Who Wore It Best?' and 'Fashion Police' and 13 year-old fashion bloggers who supposedly control the pulse of fashion with one Tweet, it's anything but. I have walked quite a few red carpets over the past 18 years and have made it to the top of both the best, and worst, dressed lists.

Looking back over old photos, I don't regret any of the outfits I've worn…. because each of them is a great indicator of my personality… I am a woman who likes to take chances and surprise people with the unexpected. I am playful and I like to experiment… I love clothing and shoes and accessories… it is fun to dress up. Critics may not always agree with my choices but, ultimately, I dress to impress me.

So which ones made the cut?

See for yourself in the gallery (below)!

YSL's Creative Director This Close To Being Fired

ysl-about-to-fire-creative-director-stefano-pilati.jpg

Stefano Pilati might want to start revamping his resume because word around Paris Fashion Week is that Tom Ford's successor at YSL is about to get fired.

According to a source:

"Apparently the house is tired of his antics, like blowing off reporters, partying too hard and making clothes that no one wants to buy, and they have decided to sack him".

Hmm, that sounds an awful lot like Lindsay Lohan and her stint at Ungaro.

The source goes on to say Pilati's replacement is likely to be Olivier Theyskens, "who somehow keeps failing upwards — he drove Nina Ricci near financial ruin with clothes that photograph dramatically but no one can actually wear."

Great choice, YSL.

Giles Turns Ungaro Around!

It was the show everyone was waiting for, and on Monday Giles Deacon finally revealed his debut collection for Emanuel Ungaro — and it was a success!

The Spring 2011 collection was youthful and classy, a word that's not in former creative advisor Lindsay Lohan's vocabulary. Critics also described Giles' collection as "more couture", which means it'll be expensive.

Saks Fifth Avenue's Mindy Prugnaud said it best "Giles Deacon is a serious designer who's getting the house back in order."

Congrats Giles!

Giles Gets Some Grand Help With Ungaro

wenn937319_e.jpg

Emanuel Ungaro's newly appointed creative director Giles Deacon knew he couldn't take on the Lindsanity alone, so he got some help from his friend Katie Grand.

Before she was editor and stylist at Love, Katie got her big break after turning around the troubled Italian label Bottega Veneta in the 1990s. Grand suggested BV hire Deacon to design their collection and after one season they were successful once again.

Giles is hoping Katie will have a repeat performance at Ungaro, and we think she can. Just stay away from pasties!
