Every collection has to have a last look and for the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012 I had the chance to see the last look come together over the weekend fittings. 72 hours before the first look was to roll down the runway, Oscar designed this dress, the atelier team put it together, Marilla wore it in fittings and Arizona Muse walked with it at the show. So here is my view of the making of “The Cloud Dress”…

Letters to Haiti
In our years as friends Behati and I have been on many trips and adventures together all around the world. This January we will be traveling together for a very special reason. You’ve probably heard me talk often about Lakay Pam and the great work they do aiding orphans in Haiti. Together over this last year we’ve hosted events here in New York city which have raised a lot of money to benefit the children of that devastated country.
Now Behati and I are again teaming up with Lakay Pam to travel to Haiti with a few other friends with the idea of seeing what more we all can do. We’re going to spend a few days with the orphans and experience their everyday life. While there we’ll film a little documentary of what we encounter so you can see it first hand, where the aid is going and where we still need to help.
I have a big favor to ask of you all though, allow me to explain:
When we visit the orphanages we want to take with us letters from people around the world to show the children of Haiti that they have global friends, real people who care about them. In return we will be bringing back with us their letters to you all.
Please get out your pen and paper today and write a letter for them. If you could, include your name, age and address and send it to us here:

The Beastie Boys- the Movie!
Adam Yauch is writing and directing a short film about the making of their 1987 hit “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!) called Fight For Your Right Revisited. It’s slated to premiere at this year’s Sundance and, from the looks of this photo posted on Stereogum today, MCA, Ad-Rock and Mike D are played by Seth Rogan, Elijah Wood and Danny McBride respectively. Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Jack Black are also in it, and, even though we haven’t received confirmation about this, we’re going to go ahead and add Spike Jonze to the cast, because, well, come on.
