Judging by Daniel Lalonde.... Long Wait at H&M... Crazy for Kane...

Daniel Lalonde, fashion critic? The president and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton North America took a spin outside his regular job description.

GREEN WITH ENVY: Yasmin Le Bon has become the latest model to hop on the designer bandwagon — and into Sir Philip Green’s fashion stable — with a collection that’s just bowed at Wallis, part of Green’s Arcadia clothing empire. Le Bon rounded up family members, including husband Simon and daughters Amber, Saffron and Alice, and pals Kelly Hoppen, Lisa Bilton and Tim and Malin Jefferies to celebrate the launch at the Sanderson Hotel last week. “I think I might have a Diana Ross moment later on,” said Le Bon, mulling changing from a petrol-blue silk blouse and leather trousers into another look she designed. Green, who cast an approving eye over the collection — which includes a navy military coat, floor-length evening dresses and a velvet tuxedo suit — said, “Yasmin is elegant, classy and gets it.” Le Bon already has some competition for the key looks. “There are so many pieces I want to steal,” said Le Bon’s model daughter Amber. “I’ve already got my excuses planned: I’m going to say the pug ate them.”
