‣ The ubiquitous thong of choice is turning 50! Havaianas is gearing up to celebrate its 50th anniversary this June, with a series of events and promotions set to take place across the globe. Over 200 million pairs of the iconic Brazilian footwear are sold every year, generating $1.4 billion in sales. Thank you, Havs – you’ve made many a walk to the office from the bus stop or running for a cab after a big night out just that much more comfortable.
‣ One of the SOMEWEAR girls may have a serious girl crush on her, and this may or may not be the reason this particular tid bit is making it as a new item, but Olivia Palermo is the new face of Rochas’ new perfume, Les Cascades de Rochas. The pretty print ads feature Palermo frolicking by the fountain outside of Paris’ Palais Royal.
‣ If your invite to the Costume Institute Gala has somehow got lost in the mail then you’ll be glad to hear you can watch a live stream of the whole fashionable soiree on vogue.com, amazon.com/fashion and metmuseum.org on May 7 (6.30pm NYC time). The Met Ball broadcast will be hosted by (model) Elettra Wiedemann and Vogue’s William Norwich plus feature interviews with the gala’s co-hosts, Carey Mulligan, Miuccia Prada and her royal fashioness, Anna Wintour (of course).
