Itsnotyouitsme Report 102: Things to Know

Photobucket "Liv Tyler Returns to Music Video: Need something to wake you up this Monday morning? Tyler covered the INXS song “Need You Tonight” to promote Givenchy’s newest scent, Very Irrésistible Givenchy Electric Rose, and the accompanying video is pretty sexy. The track was produced by TV on the Radio’s David Andrew Sitek, and Tyler actually sounds kind of amazing." - - via

Photobucket "Olivia Palermo for Rochas: The fashion darling has been named the new face of the next Rochas fragrance. P&G Prestige vice president Bill Brace said Palermo’s “natural sense of style and classic elegance are a perfect fit with what Rochas stands for,” and the Parisian brand does indeed seem a good match for Palermo. The rest of the details about the new scent will be released to the press after Rochas’ runway show on the 29th." - - via

Photobucket "FDA Says Most Lipsticks Contain Lead: Just when you thought it was safe to add some pigment to your pout! The U.S. Food and Drug Administration conducted a study for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, and found that of 400 lipsticks they tested, the majority contained low levels of lead. L’Oreal’s “Color Sensational” Pink Petal lipstick had the most lead, containing 7.19 parts per million. Compare that with children’s products sold in the U.S., which are not allowed to have more that 100 parts per million. But don’t get too worried– the FDA says the levels are so miniscule, there’s really nothing to worry about." - - via

Photobucket "Orlando Bloom Says Wife Miranda Kerr Makes Being Beautiful “Look Easy”: He might not be spending Valentine’s day with his supermodel spouse, but Orlando Bloom had no shortage of nice words for his wife Miranda Kerr. The actor told the folks at Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O radio show that he is in awe of how quickly Kerr shed those post-baby pounds: “To have just had a baby and then got back up on to do that. I don’t think it’s easy for those girls. They make it look easy, but you know, it’s a lot of work to look good.”" - - via

Photobucket "At Least Two Underage Models Walked in Last Night’s Marc Jacobs Show: Marc Jacobs does what he wants, ya’ll. The designer and CFDA board member cast two underage models, Thairine Garcia and Ondria Hardin, for his Fall 2012 show. The CFDA has asked designers to refrain from using models under the age of 16, but that doesn’t seem to be a concern of Jacobs’: “I do the show the way I think it should be and not the way somebody tells me it should be … If [the models'] parents are willing to let them do a show, I don’t see any reason that it should be me who tells them that they can’t.”" - - via

Photobucket "Fashion Photographer Lillian Bassman Dies: At the age of 94, photographer Lillian Bassman passed away from natural causes at her home in Manhattan. Bassman has been working in fashion since the 1940s, and has had a 40-year career in the industry (she took a break from photography in the seventies and eighties.) She lived a full life and will be sorely missed and always remembered for her amazing work." - - via

Photobucket "Lara Stone Hates London Traffic: Lara Stone just got her license, but instead of ripping down the streets of London, she’s stuck crawling behind double-decker buses: “It’s hard not to get road rage in London because of those buses, they’re so big and red. They know they can cut you off and drive right into you because you’ll stop!” How does she keep calm? “I always like to sing along to some depressing, angry Morrissey.” What could be more relaxing than depressing, angry music?" - - via

Photobucket "Butterflies Escape At Edun’s Afterparty: Live Monarch Butterflies broke free from their cages at Edun’s afterparty, to mingle and sip cocktails with guests. The New York Post reports that the butterflies were flying around the room and landing on partygoers.

Photobucket "New Designers Struggle to Get Notice at NYFW: Not all designers can get Anna Wintour (or even George Lucas) in the front row.

Photobucket "Crouching Anna Dello Russo, Hidden Seating at Diesel: So much for being ‘fashionably late’!

Photobucket "Terry Richardson x Lindsay Lohan for Love: We can never get enough of these skeevy LiLo photo shoots. In this one, she barely escapes catching her hair on fire, walks into a pool wearing in heels, and shows us that she’s finally bought some (albeit very tiny) underpants." - - via

Photobucket "Prabal Gurung Wears Commes des Garcons, Will Do Menswear: Prabal revealed that he never ever goes shopping, but when he does, it’s at Commes des Garcons – where he bought his favorite (and constantly worn) baseball jacket.

Photobucket "Nicki Minaj is Making A Movie: Yup. At last night’s M.A.C Viva Glam launch party, the rapper revealed that her weirdo Grammy performance was just a sneak peek of the madness to come: “You know how people write plays and movies? That’s what I did. I wrote that and I gave the world a tiny little preview of what was to come. And so I have to perform it on the set in which it would be in the movie, right?” This should be interesting, but no movie penned by a hip-hop artist will be better than R.Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet. The bar has been set, Ms. Minaj." - - via

Have A Very Merry Birthday Miss Regina Spektor!!!

A true innovator in musique. From songs based on scenarios and characters drawn from her imagination, Regina Spektor's tunes show influences from folk,punk, rock, Russian, pop, jazz, and classical music. Spektor has been quoted saying that, "she works hard to ensure that each of her songs has its own musical style, rather than trying to develop a distinctive style for her music as a whole." Along with broad vocal range and lyrics equally eclectic, her tunes often take the form of abstract narratives or first-person character studies, similar to short stories put to song.

Regina Ilyinichna Spektor was born February 18, 1980. She's a Soviet-born New York raised singer-songwriter and pianist. I first saw Spektor's first nationwide tour accompanying The Strokes as the opening act on their 2003–2004 'Room on Fire tour'. Ever since that night, I've seen Regina on a total of 8 different occasions. I adore her and her originality and her passion for constantly marching to the beat of her own drum. She is one of my all-time favorite singer-songwriter-pianist and today kiddas, lets take a moment to reflect and listen to all that's good in musique.
