Fashion Scoops: Hey, Good Lookin', Whatcha Got Cookin'?... Red The Said... Celebrating Man...

Sure, Tom Ford can build a megabrand. But can he cook? None other than Martha Stewart will be the judge of that on Tuesday morning, when the design guru joins the domestic diva live on "The Martha Stewart Show."

Designers Lars Nilsson and Bruno Frisoni admired the timelessness of a collection spanning four decades. "It's amazing that it is all in such condition," said Frisoni, adding that such true couture doesn't exist in the same way anymore. Guests expressed mixed emotions. "It's very beautiful, but it's bittersweet for those who knew her well," said Doncie Barroso, who spent almost a year cataloguing Kempner's wardrobe after she died. Barroso flew in from New York with her mother, Silvina, Kempner's former chef and housekeeper, who cast a rather different eye over the collection. "She was very fond of clothes, she kept buying things. They were in every place. In the children's bathroom I put up a rail to hang more things. If she liked a scarf, then she bought a lot of them, which was much more work of course, to put things in order."

TARGET DOWN SOUTH: Target — the Australian one — is hoping for a little repeat discount designer business via a new tie-in with Australian design star Josh Goot. In Sydney on Wednesday, Target Australia — which is not connected to Target U.S. — said it will launch a capsule collection designed by Goot. At 12 pieces, the range, which bows on June 19, is much smaller than the 42-piece one the retailer offered from Stella McCartney this spring. The Goot line will also launch into "select stores" as distinct from the 100 in which McCartney's range was released. Goot's line includes tanks, a trenchcoat, leggings, pencil skirts, cardigans and a blazer. Launched on Sydney's runways just two years ago, Goot's main line is carried by Henri Bendel, Neiman Marcus, Browns Focus and Colette, among others. Having shown in New York for the past two seasons, the 27-year-old designer is planning a third New York show for September.
