We interviewed Cory Kennedy - ex-Cobrasnake muse, indie fashion star, and former Nylon magazine cover girl - sitting front row with socialite Peaches Geldof and Nylon's Faran Krentcil at Jeremy Scott's Fall 2010 runway show for New York Fashion Week. As a friend of Scott's, Kennedy got a sneak peek at his Fall collection and talks about her favorite pieces.
Society's fall philanthropy season is in full swing and last night's 2008 Whitney Studio Party proved that socials aren't quite ready for private anonymous philanthropy just yet. Entitled Past Present Future the evening was underwritten by Versace which provided plenty of body conscious garments for the tight and toned bodies that seemed impervious to the chill in the New York air last night.
John Legend and Joel Madden were just a few of the stars that came out last night for the Billabong Second Annual Design for Humanity to Benefit Surfrider Foundation in LA. The foundation works to protect our oceans, so naturally eco-friendly Adrian Grenier made an appearance with his girlfriend Isabel Lucas. Adrian's been working overtime to encourage us to go green, kicking off his Alter Eco series last night — check out a clip of the show here. Mischa Barton and Audrina Patridge also came out to show the love for those beaches they spend so much time at, which is a good thing since we know how much these two love to show off their bikini bodies.

Well, you certainly had a lot to say about Urban Decay's choice of web-celeb Cory Kennedy as its new face. Fashionista has a glimpse of the ads that will soon show up on counters, and they're pretty bold. Not sure I'll be reviving the '80s with pink and blue eye shadow, but then again, I'm not a teenage hipster . . .
Cory Kennedy, the web-celeb teenager, who has partied all over the world before even graduating from high school, is about to become a beauty icon, Fashionista reports. She's set to be the next face of Urban Decay cosmetics, with ads appearing in magazines, billboards, and in-store promotional signs. Considering her sometimes-messy, adventurous style, I think she's a good fit for the brand. That said, it kinda turns me off from Urban Decay, because I'm not exactly a fan of the dilated-pupils look. What do you think? Good fit, or not so much?
Fab told me that hats are big these days, but I thought it would be difficult to work that look outside of a fashion show. But there they were at last night's Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party. Hilary Duff wore a floppy knit beret, Frances Bean Cobain donned a more structured hat, and web celeb Cory Kennedy channeled Isabella Blow with a netted chapeau.
Of course, certain hats go better with certain hairstyles. A beret like Hilary's is flattering on medium-to-long hair because it allows the hair to flow (it's also a fast fix when you don't feel like doing much primping). Pretty much anyone can wear a trilby, but if your hair is chin-length, pull it away from the front of your face (as Frances does) so the hat-hair combo doesn't overwhelm. Finally, there's a more formal hat, like the one Cory wears. If you choose this hat, go with an updo—the casual, flowing hair just doesn't work with such a rigid accessory.
Who do you think had the best "hat head" last night?
