new news newsy

drew barrymore to be the new face of missoni? she reportedly shot the spring/summer 2006 campaign in ibiza last week. remember when she was the guess girl back in the early 90s? we liked her grungy appeal then with the torn jeans and chipped vamp varnish, but we love her even more as a ditzy dippy hippy. we can so picture her in the italian label's signature zigzag knits... could it be true that sienna miller and rachel weisz will replace kate moss as the stars of its ads? sienna for the clothing line and rachel for fragrance? hmmm so many brit beauties, so little brands. we're waiting for someone to give keira knightley a job (did you see her on the cover of the new york times' T beauty special? gor-gee-yoss)... mary-kate olsen to be the next kate moss? (not as a daily mirror cover girl ha!) in a calvin klein campaign, that is. the designer was said to be eyeing half of the twillionaires to model for a high-end collection. if this is true, then he made the right decision—we think m-k is the cooler twin... meanwhile, ex-calvin klein face hilary swank may be the latest hollywood celeb to front a fragrance, this time for guerlain. maybe they'll call it boxing champs-elysées (that was a joke, laugh naman)... and speaking of jokes because this isn't one, we read that marilyn manson will be launching his own fragrance. no, not monroe, she's dead—manson! all we can say is be afraid, be very afraid... something else to be afraid of: a musical about madame. titled "Here Lies Love," it is being written by the talking heads' david byrne and fatboy slim, will revolve around imelda marcos' love for partying, and will premiere in march 2006 in australia. the link talks about how she installed a disco in her nyc townhouse. we believe it because she converted a pelota court in her san juan home into a ballroom; we know because we've seen it (we would post a photo but we don't have a scanner; sorry, hindi kasi digital eh)... this one falls under bizarre fashion news. burberry is suing a ferret-clothing company in london for using their signature plaid. the items in question involve a cute cap and a darling cape. so fall/winter 2005!

fashionista ferret: "chav, innit?"
