Girls star Allison Williams brought a file of red-carpet photos and a single request to her initial meeting with stylist Cristina Ehrlich: “My dream — my dream — is to wear Oscar de la Renta. It is one of the only designers I feel like I’ve always known about, and I’ve always noticed.” Ehrlich says, “We’ve had a very planned-out way that we wanted to see the evolution of her style come to fruition. It was always about getting to this moment where she would wear Oscar de la Renta.” And that is the long, involved story of how Allison Williams came to wear a green dress to the Emmys. For good measure, Williams and Ehrlich threw in a pink de la Renta for an Emmys pre-party. [WWD]

Lara Stone is on the cover of the Sunday Times‘ style magazine this week. She says if modeling doesn’t work out, “I’d like to have my own burger place. I’m going to call it Lara’s Baps and Buns. There’s not a proper good caff here. I want a proper good chips place. They’re all too fancy.” Given that “baps” and “buns” is also British slang for “tits” and “ass,” it is possible Stone just might be having us on. [Vogue UK]

Vena Cava, in lieu of doing a fashion show this season, approached the Safdie brothers about directing a feature film loosely inspired by the brand. Heartland, a story about a cult of women led by a charismatic man, is the result and this is the trailer. Co-designers Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai are in it, as is Annie Clark of St. Vincent.

Former Ungaro designer Esteban Cortazar — the guy who was fired because the label’s then-owners had the bright idea to hire Lindsay Lohan as co-creative director — launched his first eponymous collection for Net-A-Porter. Mostly done in white, it includes items like cape-backed jackets, cut-out evening dresses, and lots of gold hardware riveted onto the garments at points like pocket edges and hems. [Net-A-Porter]
Meanwhile, Emanuel Ungaro is getting re-re-re-relaunched, as a line of women’s wear produced under a seven-year license by the Italian company that does Alberta Ferretti and Moschino. The designer will be the young Italian Fausto Puglisi. [WWD]

Jeez, even Katie Grand knocked off the Isabel Marant wedge sneakers. The stylist and LOVE editor has a small collaboration with Hogan; Grand says the shoes are inspired by the brand’s archive. Right. [On The Runway]

  • Karl Lagerfeld, that old yenta, set Vanessa Paradis up with Carla Bruni‘s ex-boyfriend, French singer Benjamin Biolay. And now they’re going to make beautiful music together. By which we mean, Paradis and Biolay are recording a duet for Biolay’s new album. [Daily Mail]
  • Sharon Stone was rushed to hospital during the Fendi show because of a migraine, which is just about the best way to get out of having to sit still for 20 minutes and watch fur-draped models walk up and down a catwalk. She recovered well enough to host the amfAR AIDS benefit that night. [Us]
  • Valentino Garavani confirmed that he designed Anne Hathaway‘s wedding dress. “She’s like my daughter,” said the designer. [E!]
  • After two seasons, Kanye West has canceled his upcoming Paris fashion show — and may have shut down his clothing line entirely. Critical reception to the musician’s first show was pretty cold, to be honest, but Kanye got a lot better the second time around — but then the only seemed to have attracted one retail account: Colette in Paris, which stocked one $5,850 shoe. Kanye’s P.R. firm declined to comment when asked if the line had been discontinued, which is always a good sign. [WWD]
  • Cathy Horyn enjoyed Jil Sander‘s first women’s wear show in charge of her namesake label in eight years, writing:
  • Maybe the most important thing to take away from her show on Saturday was how powerful the Jil Sander brand is. At the most basic level it has survived three different corporate owners in the past decade. But Ms. Sander’s minimalist concept has proven to be incredibly durable and also expansive.
  • [On The Runway]
    Meanwhile, the Times‘ Eric Wilson reports that although the circumstances of Sander’s return left “many longtime supporters a little wary, to say the least” — you will recall that Raf Simons, a popular and talented designer, was fired from the company in order to enable Sander to take the reins, although Simons certainly landed well, later accepting the top job at Christian Dior — many buyers received the collection well. [On The Runway]
  • Anna Dello Russo‘s 28-year-old assistant, Carlotta Oddi, sounds a little nervous in this interview: “I’ve never had a crazy request. But for Anna, impossible doesn’t exist. When the time comes, I’ll be able to do whatever she asks of me, I think.” Oddi got the job through her father, who has a mutual friend with the Vogue Japan fashion editor. [The Cut]
  • Italian luxury lingerie brand La Perla is for sale by its San Francisco-based owners, the private-equity firm JH Associates. JH acquited an indebted La Perla for around $400 million in 2008 and reorganized the company, cutting unprofitable brands but saving 250 Italian manufacturing jobs. Still, the economy in Europe being what it is, sources say it would probably accept $300 million for La Perla now. [WWD]
  • Around 200 people turned out for a memorial service for the fashion editor and famously artistic dresser Anna Piaggi, who died last month at age 81. Rosita Missoni, Manolo Blahnik, and Stephen Jones were among the speakers. Jones recalled that, prior to going on vacation with Missoni, Piaggi once called him up to ask for some waterproof hats:
  • “Why?” he asked.
  • “Well, I can’t be naked in the sauna,” she said.

  • The new editor-in-chief of Brides is Keija Minor. Minor replaces Ann Fulenwilder, who went to Marie Claire, who replaced Joanna Coles, who went to Cosmopolitan, who replaced Kate White, who retired. WWD notes: “Minor’s appointment at Brides marks the first person of color to become editor in chief of a Condé Nast publication.” [WWD]
  • Stores are opening in Brazil to dress a relatively new market: Evangelical Christians, which have grown from just 6% of the population (according to census figures) in 1980 to 22% in 2010. Many Evangelical congregations require women to wear long skirts or dresses and to cover their shoulders, either for services or in their everyday lives. Pants are verboten. Ana Paula Fernandez, who was shopping at one of the stores profiled in this story, told the Daily Mail:
  • “Once when I first joined, I went to church in pants, and the pastor called me out on it,” said the 25-year-old manicurist and mother of a 7-year-old daughter. “It seemed strange at first, but now I see how what you wear affects other people, not to mention your own sense of self-worth.”
  • Now, she says she wears only modest, loose-fitting dresses to church.
  • “I feel dignified.”

  • Net profits at Prada during the first six months rose year-on-year by 59.5%. [WWD]
  • Derek Lam‘s upcoming collection for Kohl’s, set to reach stores next spring, is inspired by Lam’s recent trip to Rio de Janeiro.
