If there is one thing we know, it is that the world of fashion does not take a pre-winter vacation. On the contrary, there is plenty happening in the month of November—including designer collaborations, new collections, fashion reality shows, photography books, and beauty lines, just to name a few. On that note, our latest installment of The Hot List is here to help, so click through to discover all the need-to-know details on six major happenings taking place in November.
Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson
Imagine spending a year chronicling the life of Lady Gaga. That is what fashion photographer Terry Richardson has done, beginning at Lollapalooza and ending at the final Monster Ball show, with stops at a political rally, a Mugler show, and an award ceremony along the way. During this year, Terry took over 100,000 images, hundreds of which can be found in Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson, a new must-have coffee-table book. Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson ($28.52) is available for pre-order now at Amazon.com, ahead of its November 22 launch.
Prada Trick Bears
If you have been wondering what to buy this holiday season for the girl who has everything, take note. Prada has just released a collection of Trick bears, tiny bears that attach to your handbag via a key fob. Each bear is decked out in a variety of rocker clothes—from metallic pants to gold mesh mini dresses. And, naturally, each bear has its own name and character. For instance, the Trick bear you see above? That is Trick Stan. Head to your nearest Prada boutique to pick up your very own.
All On The Line
Television just doesn’t feel the same without Joe Zee, which is why we are so excited that Sundance Channel’s All On The Line is back for another season. Once again Joe will be offering struggling designers a chance at fashion rehab, showing them how to take their lines from zero to ten. In addition, the second season shows you how Nicole Miller worked with Joe to launch her newest line at New York Fashion Week. Must-see TV! All On The Line premieres on November 25 at 9.30pm ET/PT on Sundance Channel.
We know, it is hardly the season for swimwear. But who can say no to the new swimwear collection created by British lingerie label Myla in collaboration with Amir Slama. The 60-piece collection runs the gamut of swimwear design, with sleek and simple designs for those who want something practical, and more ornate designs for the wild at heart. Of course, swimwear this pretty doesn’t come cheap—prices start at around $240—but that is what you get when two experts come together. The cruise 2012 collection is available now at Myla boutiques.
Versace For H&M
For us, nothing—we repeat, nothing—has us more excited right now than the upcoming Versace for H&M collaboration. There are party dresses galore, of course, as well as accessories, smart separates, shoes, and homeware. Each and every piece stays true to the original Versace aesthetic—go big or go home—and you don’t have to be rich to get in on the action. Really, what more can you ask for as a fashion fan? The Versace for H&M collection launches on November 19 at select H&M stores. Prices start at $20.
Tom Ford Beauty
Tom Ford is a self-confessed perfectionist, which means that his new beauty collection is likely to be everything you have ever wanted and more. The line includes a full array of cosmetics, as well as beauty tools, skin care products, nail polish, and more. And each product is as sexy and saucy as a Tom Ford evening gown. For instance, one particularly bold nail polish is named Bitter Bitch, while another is named, simply, Naked. On that note, we suggest you head to your nearest Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman store promptly.
