Justin Timberlake announced the release of a new – Timberland-produced- album probably next week. What is even more exciting (without saying that I am not excited to hear what Mr Timberlake will deliver after six years hiatus from music)are rumors that the sexy ex N’Sync member teamed up with Beyoncé and Jay-Z on a track.

The three were spotted together in the studio in December last year and Complex published a Tweet (already  deleted) from producer Carl Paul reading:

“MADE A MOVIE WIT THE LEGEND TIMBALAND GOT SUM HEAT COMIN SOON BEYONCÈ, JAY-Z, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE IM WORKIN #HowBoutU”

We will keep you posted about the news.

It has been announced that Donatella Versace has selected British designer J.W. Anderson as the first person ever to work on a capsule collection for the label’s more youthful line, Versus. The decision to restructure the brand into a design laboratory came when Christopher Kane left his position as creative director for the brand. As far as we know the line will include men’s and women’s clothing as well as accessories to be unveiled next Spring, probably March or April, in New York.

We’ll of course keep you posted.

The New York Times No.1 scoopmaster Cathy Horn reported in her column, ”On the Runway“ today that American designer Alexander Wang is the leading canditate to succeed Nicolas Ghesquiere at the Parisian fashion house Balenciaga. In contrast to Ghesquiere, Wang is viewed as slicker and more contemporary than Ghesquiere, whose designs while modern are beholden to the house’s history, an adjustment Wang would no doubt need to make should he win the position.

Update From New York #Sandy

BrooklynBridge 540x356 Update From New York #Sandy

Hi everyone, I just wanted to update from HighSnobette headquarters in Brooklyn where myself and SGP are located. In our corner of the borough we were oh-so fortunate in that we hung on to electricity throughout the storm. Our building shook on Monday night, the lights flickered, it was scary as hell, but in the end we were fine. Thanks so much to all of you, friends and acquaintences, from outside the City and within who directed concern or prayers our way….I know they helped our hearts and I do believe they allayed some of the City’s tragedies, which there were and continue to be plenty of, with the sounds of sirens around us seemingly endless. Hopefully all you, our readers, are okay.

Our subway (the Q) is still out and we know from receiving emails from libraries and places of work that lots of people are still without electricity with the worst outages in lower Manhattan. The photo (via Curbed) above sort of says it all–it’s the Brooklyn Bridge and it’s lit only three-quarters with the Brooklyn side okay while Manhattan remains dark. Con Ed says most in NYC should have service back by Saturday, but yea, I think all of us here believe we’re in this together and won’t feel right until the lights are back on for everyone.  And of course our hearts go out to those who have suffered heartbreaking losses. You are in our prayers. –LAS.

Brad Pitt for Chanel No.5

 Brad Pitt for Chanel No.5

Starting mid-October, Brad Pitt will be the first man speaking about (and hopefully help selling) the Chanel No.5 fragrance.

Andrea d’Avack, president of Chanel Fragrance & Beauty about the project:

“To keep a legend fresh, you always have to change its point of view. It is the first time we’ve had a man speaking about a women’s fragrance. We think very much that the perfume is a seduction between a man, a woman and the perfume. No.5 is our leading fragrance, and we are willing to make the investment to keep it on that level.”

The global campaign will include a commercial, directed by Joe Wright that will lauch on October 15 and a print campaign to appaer in fashion magazines in November. We’ll keep you posted with first images.
