Who's Headed to Halston?... Bernard Arnault Inspires Soulja Boy...

Could Halston be prepping for a reboot with BCBG Max Azria Group veterans steering the ship?

ON THE RUNWAY: Express wants to be in the record books. Before its holiday 2011 fashion show in Times Square Saturday night, Express will have the runway open for the general public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., in an attempt to break the Guinness record for most people walking a catwalk. An adjudicator from Guinness World Records will be there to officiate. The current record was set by Galeries Lafayette in Paris in 2010, when 521 people walked a runway. Express has been attempting to raise its profile and distinguish itself from other teen and young adult chains. One way has been through fashion shows, which have been recently held in Miami, Las Vegas and New Orleans. Photos from the Times Square show Saturday, which begins at 9 p.m., will be used for the store’s holiday marketing campaign.
