JLO JEWELRY?: JLo clothing, sunglasses, perfume…and now, jewelry? While no official deal has been signed, samples designed by costume jewelry firm Miriam Haskell have started circulating in the market. Initial products include oversized hoop and duster earrings, stackable rings and cross necklaces in silver and gold plating, all of which have a tiny crystal designed to be the logo, although there are plenty of big crystals, as well. The reason no deal has been signed could be that La Lopez has been in France shooting the Louis Vuitton fall ad campaign.
LIV TO TELL: Liv Tyler is slated to breeze into Paris to shoot a film on Tuesday. But it’s a short one. Word has it she will star in a commercial for the new Parfums Givenchy fragrance, due to be launched in September. Mario Testino has already shot Tyler for the fragrance’s print campaign. Tyler, as reported, was chosen by the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned house to be the new scent’s "muse."
SHOE POLISH: Dusty French shoe firm Stephane Kélian confirmed it has hired Alain Tondowski as its new creative director. Tondowski, known for his hard-edged, sexy designs under his own name, will debut his first Kélian collection in spring 2004. The house, which had fallen on hard times, was snapped up last year by upstart luxury conglomerate France Luxury Group, helmed by Alain Dumenil.
GET A ROOM: Calvin Klein is planning to stir up a little more controversy on Wednesday with a video installation in the front window of his Madison Avenue flagship that shows CK poster boy Travis Fimmel making out with Jessica Miller. The spot, directed by Jean Baptiste Mondino, features a metal CK Calvin Klein watch ticking away to the wet lip lock for 30-seconds, closing with the tag line, "Take your time." The video will be aired as a commercial in some global markets and will be continuously looped on a 3-by-4-foot translucent acrylic screen, which, like all romantic things, will best be viewed at night.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
