Kind Carats at Cartier... How Tweet It Is... A Lily for Karl Lagerfeld...

Demi Moore sparkles at launch of new Cartier Trinity Charity bracelet... Rachel Roy tweets... Karl Lagerfeld takes a liking to Lily Allen...



HOW TWEET IT IS: In the tradition of press conferences everywhere, Rachel Roy’s Thursday afternoon started late — by about 20 minutes. However, Roy’s was a bit different: It took place on Twitter instead of in a boardroom. The designer, who admitted at Wednesday night’s launch party for her Macy’s line that her staff had to give her a 10-minute tutorial in the microblogging service, answered queries fans had posted online. While the questions weren’t the most hard-hitting (“Rachel, you absolutely glow! How do you stay confident through tough times?”), she did touch on everything from social media to her inspirations (graffiti, travel, the smell of libraries and “my gay husbands”). She also hinted at expansion: When an acolyte asked, “Are you going to extend your fabulous frocks to us Curvy Fashionistas size 14+?” she replied, “I would love to do a plus-size line.”

SMILE, YOU’RE ON CAMERA: Karl Lagerfeld
has cast another surprising personality for his next Chanel handbag campaign: Lily Allen. “She’s fun,” enthused Lagerfeld, who plans to turn his lens on the British pop star next week.
