Memo Pad: Designers Hit the Oscars... Another YSL Manifesto...

Several designers got more than mere name-dropping when celebrities were asked the requisite who-are-you-wearing red-carpet question at the Oscars.

ANOTHER MANIFESTO: The eighth edition of Yves Saint Laurent’s Manifesto, a more personal reflection of the brand, will make its debut March 5 in Paris, New York, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. Creative director Stefano Pilati initially conceived of the publication to offer another perspective of YSL to a demographic that doesn’t necessarily relate to fashion. The latest Manifesto was photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and features model of the moment Arizona Muse from the spring campaign. Pilati is interviewed by Hans Ulrich Obrist, critic and curator of contemporary art and co-director of the Serpentine Gallery in London. Over 500,000 copies will be distributed globally and the first 2,000 to receive it in each city will get a free custom cotton YSL tote, with Muse’s picture on it. In keeping with the times, YSL will also feature Manifesto on its Web site, Facebook page and Twitter account.
