Pharrell Williams might have contributed a track to Britney Spears’ Blackout, but he’s redeemed himself in a big way. The producer collaborated with Madonna on “Hey You,” a single on MSN’s Live Earth Web site that will donate 25 cents to the Alliance for Climate Protection for each of the first one million downloads.
Kirsten Dunst has gone Marie to Miuccia. Following in the footsteps of Hollywood starlets like Selma Blair, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Lindsay Lohan, Dunst will model for Miu Miu as the face of their spring 2008 campaign.
BEND IT LIKE MARC
Mrs. Beckham has been a busy lady lately, what with the Spice Girls reunion tour and a cameo on Ugly Betty. Marc Jacobs has taken note, and just signed Victoria on as the new spokesmodel for his “sexy, peek-a-boo spring collection.” Turns out she’s just as in demand as her hubby’s right foot.
Australian supermodel, actress, and lingerie designer Elle Macpherson knows it takes more than pretty underthings to get editors into a showroom. To showcase her spring 2008 collection, Macpherson drew the fashion crowd to EMI with pomegranate Bellinis, massages from the Four Seasons, and frilly freebees.
Last week we reported that The Hills’ co-star Heidi Montag was launching a fashion collection for Anchor Blue. Well, Lauren Conrad—who already has her own namesake line—is back at it. LC teamed up with Linea Pelle to design a range of everything from totes to clutches to coin purses. Touché.
