Jessica Chastain's Ad For Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto

YSL's Purple Paint, Garance Doré's Print, and Christian Louboutin's Counterfeits



Those stories and more in our daily news roundup.

  • The reason Jessica Chastain's hands are covered by purple paint in the ad for the highly anticipated Yves Saint Laurent fragrance Manifesto is that "it was the color of absolute seduction for Mr. Saint Laurent," according to a YSL executive. [WWD]

  • As many as 20,000 pairs of counterfeit Christian Louboutin shoes have been seized over the past month by US Customs and Border Protection officers. The agency estimates the fake shoes' value near $18 million. [Los Angeles Times]

  • Garance Doré says the print she designed for her collaboration with Kate Spade blends New York style with Parisian chic. "I actually think I dress in even more of a French way now that I live in New York," she says. "I'm more conscious of my Frenchness!" [Vogue UK]

  • Cathy Horyn suggests Paul Ryan, announced this week as Mitt Romney's vice presidential running mate, might want to visit a tailor before the campaign is over. Of the blazer he wore when the announcement was made, she writes, "He was swimming in his coat, like Tom Hanks in Big when he becomes a kid again." [The New York Times]

  • Emma Watson says the reason she started doing ad campaigns — notably for Burberry and Lancome — was to create "public identity for herself separate from the brainiac character of Hermione Granger." [T Magazine]
