Morning round-up: Posh and the internet, and Stevie Wonder and the First Lady

27 February 2009


Poor Victoria Beckham didn't get an invite to Marc Jacobs' New York Fashion Week show, but in fairness he didn't invite any celebrities. But as a big fan of his work, Vic took time out to watch it online. That's dedication for you! 

Michelle Obama pays Stevie Wonder the ultimate compliment, by wearing an emerald green dress by his wife, Kai Milla, as her husband presented the musician with the Library of Congress's Gershwin Prize (the US's highest honour for pop musicians). The couple bonded over Wonder's music in the early days of their relationship

One of the classic design houses, with a colourful and beautiful history, is being brought back to live. Vionnet has been bought by former Valentino chairman, Marzotto and Marni's CEO Gianni Castiglioni, and the new creative director will be Rodolfo Paglialunga, who worked as one of Miuccia Prada's assistants for 12 years. Expect the first full collection to roll out in September 2009.
