Style Scoop: BFA Awards, Louis Vuitton in Miami, and Karl’s Rolex

In Paris or Munich? Drop by one of the Karl Lagerfeld stores to pick up the Kaiser’s latest customization: a 19,000 euro, matte black Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss with Uncle Karl’s profile at 7 o’clock.

So who won at last night’s British Fashion Awards? Christopher Kane made out big as Womenswear Designer of the Year; Miuccia Prada took home top honors for International Designer; Kate Moss was honored for her 25 years in the industry (talk about staying power – she has a face and body that just won’t quit – see Playboy for proof); Burberry took home two honors for menswear and designer brand; JW Anderson took home the prize for new establishment; Nicholas Kirkwood was named Accessories Designer of the Year – for the third year in a row; and One Direction’s Harry Styles was recognized by Vodafone for embodying the spirit of London in style. I guess he’s named aptly.

Unfortunate news for internet shoppers – the Supreme Court has ruled to uphold New York’s internet tax… meaning your purchases from Amazon and and other online retailers aren’t exempt any longer. This evens the playing field for brick-and-mortar stores, so it’ll be good for business… just maybe not so much for the shopper.

Part of Versace is up for sale, up to a 20% stake. The sale would make some of those involved billionairesnot including Donatella, surprisingly.

Louis Vuitton is set to unveil “a house by the shore” during Design Miami. The house was conceived in 1934, but hadn’t been built ’til now.

Tommy Hilfiger Gave Nicki Minaj a Crazy-Pricey Rolex for Being His Met Gala Date

What does a ridiculously wealthy fashion designer who has everything give to a ridiculously wealthy pop star who has everything? A $37,000 Rolex watch, obviously, which is exactly what Tommy Hilfiger did at last night’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala. Before Nicki Minaj even served her guest duties, the famed design star handed her a box enclosed with the coveted Rolex Oyster 41 watch in Everose gold, which she posted on Twitter. The former BlackBook cover star‘s Tweet was accompanied by "Oh gee, thx Tommy," which isn’t exactly how I’d reply if someone gifted me someone’s salary to wear on my wrist. (It would be more like: "OMG, seriously? For me?! Like, this isn’t a joke? I don’t have to give it back, ever? I can’t breath…I can’t breath. Really? Oh, Mr. Hilfiger, thank you! Thank you a thousand times over!")

But this kind of stuff happens to stars all the time, so I get the nonchalance. Hey, it was worth a Tweet, at least. Our friends at The Viviant also note that Zooey Deschanel, Lily Aldridge and her husband Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon were also at Hilfiger’s Met Gala table that night. Wonder if they received the same love? (I really can’t picture Deschanel sporting a Rolex, for some reason.)
