Designers all over the world would love to get their pieces on Pippa and Kate Middleton. Alice Temperley has—more than a few times over. “I’m flattered,” she told InStyle.com of being a royal go-to at the New York party for True British, a new book that celebrates the 10th anniversary of her London label. “They’re the most humble, down-to-earth people I’ve ever dressed. They’re completely easy and wonderful to work with, and they look great in the clothes. They know exactly what they like.” However, the global response—including winning Designer of the Year at the Hollywood Style Awards this week—is something she didn’t anticipate. “When I was dressing them I had no idea what a reaction the world would have,” she confessed. “I hope that they always get the support that they deserve because they are truly good girls.” See some of Temperley’s designs worn on the Middletons in the gallery.
Accessorizing your gadgets just got a little more fun: Designer Rebecca Minkoff teamed up with eBay to create a line of tech accessories, from neon cheetah-print iPhone cases to gold studded iPad envelopes. “Everyone has a phone, and this is a good way to showcase your style through it,” the designer told InStyle.com at the lineup’s launch party, held at Ten Over Ten salon in New York City. The limited-edition line just dropped at fashionvault.ebay.com this week, available for $28 to $220. And heads up, shoppers: In 2011, eBay.com sold one cell phone or PDA accessory every second, and one iPad or tablet accessory every 15 seconds—in other words, get yours before they’re gone. Preview the entire collection in the gallery now.
Congratulations, Joseph Altuzarra! The designer took home the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion Fund grand prize last night, which means he pocketed $300,000 to put towards his line. (Sophie Theallet, Billy Reid, and Alexander Wang all won the honor in years past.) Since launching his label in 2009, Altuzarra has turned out sexy, form-fitting clothes which have been snapped up by celebrity fans like Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian. We can’t wait to see what he creates with his new pot of gold—and who wears his designs next on the red carpet. To see more of Altuzarra’s work, click through the gallery of his resort 2011 collection.
