LIV AND LEARN: French fashion houses are relying on star power for their next ad campaigns. Actress Liv Tyler, who is already the face for Very Irresistible Givenchy fragrance, also will represent the French fashion house’s ready-to-wear, designed by Julien Macdonald. Tyler just wrapped up shooting the spring 2004 campaign with Mario Testino in a mansion outside of Paris. Meanwhile, sources said Marc Jacobs has tapped a famous face of a different vintage for his spring campaign: Charlotte Rampling. Juergen Teller did the shoot at the Crillon Hotel in Paris.
A REAL SHOWMAN: Karl Lagerfeld is always up for a fashion show. In mid-December in Paris, he’s slated to show his second “satellite” collection for Chanel using the couture house’s specialty ateliers, which include embroidery house Lesage and haute shoemaker Massaro. Sources said this pre-fall collection is likely to lean in an evening direction. Lagerfeld showed his first “satellite” line in Paris about the same time last year, reprising the show in New York, Milan and Tokyo.
ROCK THE BOAT: Vincent Huguenin, who joined Kenzo as president a little over a year ago, is about to exit the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned house, according to sources. A spokeswoman for the company declined to comment Friday. Huguenin, formerly president of Petit Bateau, succeeded Herve Martin in the role. Next season, Kenzo welcomes Italian Antonio Marras as its new women’s wear designer.
DIVA FASHION: Nearing the end of her two-week New York City tour and having partied for four days straight along the way, Grace Jones gave her vocal chords a break and tried on the role of DJ Thursday night at Song Airlines’ party in its new SoHo store. She got the invite from Chris Blackwell, the record producer who has discovered scores of musicians, including Bob Marley.
Known to dress for an occasion, the 51-year-old wore a Game Boy-style outfit that was vintage Issey Miyake. Her thoughts turned to more contemporary subjects.As for Beyoncé Knowles’ style, Jones said, “I think all the styles are the same. They all kind of look alike. She is very sexy, but they all wear the same hair, makeup and clothes. Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Britney — they all seem to have the same look. The last one I saw with her own look was Erykah Badu. Her look was the most interesting and more individual.”
But Jones doesn’t blame the pop stars. “I’m not sure it’s the fault of the performer. Everything looks like it’s being run by the corporation,” she said. “But their voices are beautiful.”

“People should be a lot more honest in expressing both the dark and light of themselves. We need to give each other the space to do that because it’s the only way we can grow and evolve,” says @noelwells of her new film “Mr. Roosevelt,” which is largely based on her own struggles. Unexpectedly leaving @nbcsnl in 2014 after just one season, Wells felt set back in her self-esteem and career trajectory.
