Mishap at Tom Ford, Miu Miu Picks Up Mrs. Depp

  • You would expect a Tom Ford party to be a little dangerous, but in a good way, not a nearly-lose-an-eye way: Some poor guy was at Ford's soiree in Milan when a spotlight fell on his head, sending him to the hospital for stitches. [Fashionista]
  • Was Michelle Obama a lucky charm for Isabel Toledo? Mrs. O wore a Toledo dress to the Vogue/Calvin Klein fundraiser last week, and now the designer has won the 2008 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion from The Museum at FIT. Simon Doonan and André Leon Talley will present Toledo with the award on September 3rd at a luncheon at the Rainbow Room. [FWD]
  • Johnny Depp's baby mama Vanessa Paradis is the new face of Mui Mui. [BlackBook]
  • Newly-minted Jill Sander creative director Raf Simons is collaborating on a line of knitwear and polo shirts with Fred Perry. Which will hopefully make everyone forget that the label's most famous patron lately is Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Incarcerated. [JC Report]
  • Keep calm everyone: Colette is coming to New York. On September 6th the Parisian temple of style is opening a pop-up store next to the Gap on 54th and Fifth. [Fashionista]
  • Anna's already said it, but writer Julia Reed rubs it in a bit more: How foolish of Hillary Clinton to think she didn't need the mighty power of a Vogue editorial! [WWD]
  • Two sample sales worth hitting today: Betsey Johnson at the Millennium Broadway Hotel, starts at 10am, and Alexander Wang at 3rd Floor, 386 Broadway, starts at 3pm. [Missbehave/Nylon]
