Tom Ford Spring Summer 11 Secret Show

Last September 12, designer Tom Ford organized in his boutique in Madison Avenue in NY a secret preview of his womenswear collection, but the time has stood still since that day. What happened that day was not revealed to the common people. All of the photos, by Terry Richardson and the videos weren't released...until now!

On the catwalk all the women that inspired the designer like Du Juan, Liu Wen, Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Lakshmi Menon, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Freja Beha Erichsen, which is the testimonial for the eyewear, Anja Rubik, Daria Werbowy, Karen Elson, Natalia Vodianova, Stella Tennant, Amber Valletta, Carolyn Murphy which was the previous face for the eyewear, Monica "Jac" Jagaciak, Lauren Hutton, Liya Kebede and Joan Smalls.

In the parterre guests like Anna Wintour, Joe Zee, Nina Garcia and Carine Roitfeld, but mixed in with the models were other celebrities such as Rita Wilson, Julianne Moore, Beyoncè Knowles and her sister Solange, Marisa Berenson, Farida Khelfa, Lisa Eisner, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Lou Dillon, Rachel Feinstein, Emmanuelle Seigner, Rinko KIkuchi and Daphne Guinnes closing the show.

Tom Ford personally introduced every model and garment with a "Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to introduce....".
The only photograph allowed to shoot the show was Terry Richardon, one of TF's bestfriends. The collection was all glamour with sharp pantsuits in black silk or a leopard pattern, gorgeous black evening clothes with sheer blouses, corsets, and maybe a shrug in shredded tulle, impeccable details like hammered gold jewelry, stilettos with ankle ties and seamed black stockings. Watching the video of TF's ss11 collection, I felt ad if I took a step back into the 70's...

Rihanna aka Reb'l Fleur

Like other singers before her (the last one was Katy Perry with Purr ) Rihanna doesn't want to be less than anyone else.
It's not enough if every 2 days she came out with a new single or a new collaboration. NO! Now she wants to be always with us also with her fragrance.
So here she is with Reb'l Fleur
The name was inspired by a memory of her past and of her family as she tells to People Magazine"My grandma in Barbados used to call me her Rebel Flower".
About the fragrance she is very clear "I was searching for something that said 'Rihanna was here'. Something delicious and special, a fragrance with subtle hints that linger and leave a sexy memory."
So if you were thinking to turning off the radio to stop thinking about her forget it: now you have to take a shower to wash her away...but just for a few :).
The retail price will be $49 at department stores.

One last thing...what did "Reb'l Fleur" reminds you always according to Rihanna?!
Maybe one of her thousands of tattoo?! Exactly!!!
Rihanna in fact, rise a gossip few months ago when she appears with a new tattoo on her neck... "nothing new" you will say. Well, someone from France underlined a grammar error.

The singers has tattooed "Rebelle fleur" but in french the adjective goes after the object so should be "Fleur Rebelle".
Ouch Miss RiRi you been misspelled!!!
The same bad luck happened to Hayden Panettiere which tattoed on her back an italian sentence "Vivere senza Rimpianti" (Live without Regrets) but there were too many "i"'s in it.
