Rachel Zoe to launch clothing line for Fall 2011

Jacket from Fall 2011 Line

According to The Huffington Post, Stylist Rachel Zoe is set to launch a lifestyle brand for fall 2011 after signing a deal with LF USA , WWD reports. Her debut collection will include accessories, shoes and apparel.

"Subconsciously or consciously, my whole final goal--I don't want to say final because that sounds very like it's the end--but I would say my ultimate dream scenario was to be on the design side," Zoe said. She hasn't designed anything yet, but she dished, "You will definitely see me in the clothes. Like, you will absolutely see my trademark pieces. I'll definitely do faux furs and incredible leather jackets and great trousers. But I'm catering to a broader audience."

Zoe already has a line of jewelry and outerwear for QVC, which has done tremendously well. Doug Howe, QVC's executive vice president of strategic planning and merchandising, noted, "I think we can safely say that she's sold over 100,000 units in a short time with relatively few appearances."

House of Lavande Look of the Week - Kelly Murray

Kelly Murray, photographer, model and BBPR freelancer is House of Lavande’s “Look of the Week.”

THE LOOK Top by Seneca Moss, jacket by H&M, jeans by Paige, shoes by Michael Kors.
THE JEWELRY Trifari black, red and god necklace ($448); assorted gold bracelets ($348-$448), House of Lavande.
STYLE INSPIRATIONS Ever since I started watching Gossip Girl, I can’t stop. I'm obsessed with Blake Lively’s character Serena Van Der Woodsen’s wardrobe. Her sense of style on the show is said to be “inspired by Kate Moss" but I’m not that edgy. I love my skinny jeans, bandage dresses and I can’t live with out my boots!
FAVORITE ADORNMENTS: Oversized watches, chunky bracelets, scarves, layered necklaces, and never I leave the house with out my Ray Bans.
STYLE TIPS Add bold colored accessories to Kelly's classic neutral blouse and white jeans to create a completely different look. Turquoise and coral long layered necklaces would instantly give her look a gypset style perfect for any beachside local.

Surprise 60th at The Ritz Carlton , Manalapan

More than 80 guests gathered at The Ritz Carlton in Manalapan to celebrate a surprise 60th Birthday. As guests entered the Eau Spa, they lit a candle and made a wish at the wishing well before entering the spa garden to enjoy moonlit cocktails and hor d'oeuvres. Opera Singers sang at the entry of The Angel Room as guests were guided to the dinner celebration.

Prior to the surprise birthday dinner, guests were mailed blank stationery to write letters, well wishes and memories to be compiled in a custom, pink leather bound book that was presented to her at dinner. A video montage played while Happy Birthday was sung and a cake topped with an edible Christian Louboutin by Southern Belle's Cakery was brought out. Photography by John Chuter Photography.
