9AM news: Carla Bruni’s fashion double, plus why Emma Watson should apparently get naked…

16 July 2009


We reckon Carla Bruni is trying to find a way to make us less jealous of her designer wardrobe. After doing Bastille Day in white cashmere Dior, she changed into the Chanel Cruise monochrome dress she'd worn at another fundraiser just a couple of months ago still sporting her Roger Vivier Carlalala handbag from the A/W couture collection. Quelle horreur! [WWD]

Apparently 67% of people surveyed by Reuters think Emma Watson should strip to make herself a ‘sex symbol' post Harry Potter. Now, come on. Isn't pulling off a floor-length vintage Ossie Clark dress good enough for you, peeps? [Jezebel]

Fashion evangelicals are flocking to Washington to see for themselves Isabel Toledo's lemongrass ensemble Michelle Obama wore for the Inauguration ceremony. ‘It's like Mecca. Everyone wants to see it.' [WWD]

Somehow we think Barack Obama's stonewash jeans wouldn't have quite the same effect, though... [NY Magazine]

Some actresses might think their Oscar dress is the most special they'll ever wear. Jada Pinkett Smith apparently just likes rolling around in hers. ‘When you have three kids, you've got to take your opportunities when they come. In a limo, on the way to the Academy Awards this year, Will started looking at me in this way that drives me wild. We started kissing passionately, and the next thing I knew, well, let's just say we missed the red carpet and I ended up with almost no make-up on.' Too much information we think... [NY Post]

And finally, for a little shot of fashion adrenalin, check out Mad Men's January Jones getting fashioned up courtesy of Donatella Versace. First Gossip Girl, now the Drapers. Doesn't Donatella just have the best TV taste? [People]
