Your morning fashion and beauty report: Katy Perry is adorable at Teen Choice Awards, Marc Jacobs gives a revealing interview to Calvin Klein and good news for bridal gown seekers

August 10, 2010 |  9:04 am

-- Good news for finicky brides-to-be: The Aisle New York, a luxury e-commerce site set to launch next month, will offer gowns in premium price ranges. Think Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier. [WWD] (Subscription required.)

-- Katy Perry kept things moving as host of the Teen Choice Awards, broadcast Monday night, with numerous looks from cheerleader to goth to prom queen to geek (complete with orthodontic headgear!). She also showed her glam side in a sparkly bandage dress. While Lady Gaga gets lots of attention for her outre looks, I have to say I appreciate Katy's relatable humor, surprise and grace. [People] (Our sister blog, The Envelope, has its own take on the award show.)

-- Meet Shena Moulton: Almost 6 feet tall, and only 16, the Jamaican beauty has already walked runways for Marc by Marc Jacobs, Isaac Mizrahi, Calvin Klein and Louis Vuitton. Oh, and she just got her ears pierced. [WWD] 

-- Calvin Klein, no stranger to provocative advertising, interviews Marc Jacobs in the Harper's Bazaar September issue about that naughty ad for Bang, the one in which only a strategically placed bottle of the scent protects Mr. Jacobs', um, modesty. It turns out -- surprise! -- Jacobs likes being naked since he went on a health and fitness kick a few years ago. But the designer stripped down for the ad because the photographer asked him to. (He was a little more covered up in the picture above for the magazine.)  [Harper's Bazaar]

-- Designer sisters Sienna and Savannah Miller joined the legions of designers creating films about their collections. They shot at Hilles, the Gloucerstershire home of legendary fashion maven Isabella Blow where Alexander McQueen found inspiration. [Vogue UK]

-- Bernard Perris, the French designer who was a favorite of baronesses and actresses such as Faye Dunaway, has died of cancer at age 74. [WWD] (Subscription required.)

-- And Harald Vogt, founder of the Scent Marketing Institute, has died of a heart attack at 51. [WWD] (Subscription required.)

-- Tommy  Hilfiger, celebrating his brand's 25th anniversary this year, will be among the honorees at the Pratt Insitute's Legends 2010 scholarship banquet in October. [WWD]
