Marc Jacobs

New York designer Marc Jacobs is said to be marrying his fiancé Lorenzo Martone in Massachusetts this weekend. The pair want it to be a private affair with a guest list of zero. But true to his fashionable form, there will be a stellar after-party. Where’s our invite, eh? [NY Post]

Meanwhile Marc must be in planning mode at the moment. He’s confirmed he’s throwing a party during New York Fashion Week with Lady Gaga as the guest of honour. Which means she’s bound to be on his front row. Can’t wait to see her outfit for that, then. [NY Magazine]

Nicole Kidman will appear on US fashion TV show Project Runway, to set the contestants a challenge to design a dress that can be worn on the red carpet for her new film Nine’s premiere in New York. Wisely, she hasn’t said it’ll be her modelling it on the night. PS, we’ll bring you the video clip Monday. [NY Post]

Anne Hathaway has an unhealthy obsession with Chanel. ‘I will see a dress and not like it, but when I hear it’s Chanel, I suddenly have to have it.’ Sensible. [My Fashion Life]

Henry Holland is trying to assuage his guilt (and bank balance) at buying Prada brogues by cutting the sleeves and legs off all his clothes so they can double up as denim legwarmers. Because they’re really practical, you know. [W Magazine]
