Naomi Campbell is Going To Live In A Magical House Shaped Like An Ancient Egyptian God


Whether or not they’re engaged, Naomi Campbell‘s Russian (and still legally married!) billionaire boyfriend Vladislav Doronin has built her this, Campbell’s new holiday house on a private island in Turkey. The house is shaped like the eye of Horus, “an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health.” Horus, in addition to being the falcon-shaped son of Isis and Osiris, was the God of the sky, of war, and of protection. Horus House. Naturally. [Ecorazzi]

  • Yet another thing that celebrities are getting that we’re not: “armfuls” of free Target for Missoni, offered them by Jeffrey Katzenberg at a pre-Emmys party. Wait, these people are stars — why can’t they get real Missoni for free? [P6]
  • Sienna Miller found a new way to bother Anna Wintour, aside from having teeth: she came more than 30 minutes late to Matthew Williamson‘s show — which we’re assuming means she arrived more than 30 minutes after everyone else had been seated, because 30 minutes after the official start-time of a fashion show, that’s pretty much “on time” — and took her seat just as Wintour was preparing to walk out. Miller blamed her car service for the delay. [Metro]

  • Carine Roitfeld is still denying the rumors that she was fired from Vogue Paris after advertisers balked at the content of the December/January issue, which was themed around age and guest-edited by Tom Ford. (That was the issue with the infamous editorial spreads of older people being amorous and child models wearing grown-up clothing and shoes.) “My last issue was not too challenging,
    I don’t think so,” says Roitfeld. “Vogue 20 to 30 years ago was more provocative, there was less censorship.” [Telegraph]
  • Rachel Roy says Amar’e Stoudemire was pretty pushy, for a non-designer, when they worked together on a fashion line. “Working with Amar’e was interesting because he has such a strong point of view. When it came to him looking at boards or sketches, there were things that he really wanted or things that I didn’t, and vice versa.” [P6]

  • And now, a moment with Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani:
  • Ask her about Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi‘s indiscretions, and Sozzani takes a deep breath. “It gives the impression that Italy is one big casino,” she says, explaining that Italian female contempt for Berlusconi is “not about being a feminist.” It’s about a nation’s standing in the eyes of the world.
