Your morning fashion and beauty report: Iman debuts new fashion show on Bravo. Rachel Pally debuts new dress for Target.

Iman
Forget your upset over "Project Runway's" controversial season finale. Another fashion-related show debuts on Bravo on Tuesday. This one, "The Fashion Show: The Ultimate Collection," stars supermodel Iman as host, aided by designer Isaac Mizrahi and Harper's Bazaar features director Laura Brown. The concept has 12 designers competing by staging live fashion shows each week. Could be fun. [People]  

It's been 10 years since Marc by Marc Jacobs launched and to celebrate, the designer is reissuing a capsule collection of  "greatest hits" next spring. [WWD] (Suscription required.)

Ermenegildo Zegna, the maker of fine menswear that is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, is steeped in tradition, but will be up-to-the-minute when it launches an e-commerce site, scheduled to be up and running Dec. 9. [WWD] (Subscription required.)

And the anniversary celebrations just keep on coming: to mark the 150th birthday of Italy's flag, 24 Italian fashion houses have designed reinterpretations of the tri-color. Their works are on display as part of a bigger exhibit, "Ommagio al Tricolore" at the Vittoriano museum in Rome until Jan. 6. [WWD] 

Not sure how we missed this, but Eva Longoria Parker, hosting MTV's EMAs in Madrid on Sunday, went through numerous costume changes....including a hilarious riff on Lady Gaga's attention-grabbing meat dress. The laughing Parker dressed as a ham. The kind on your dining table, not the kind seeking attention onstage. [PeopleEnEspanol]

Designer Rachel Pally has done a wear-anywhere dress for Target, which sells for $80 at the retailer's Red Hot Shop. The full-skirted plum frock has a tie neck that can be worn five different ways. [FabSugar] and [All The Rage]

If there is a wedding in your future, you might want to check out Vera Wang's fall trunk show this week in Los Angeles. It's scheduled to run Thursday through Saturday on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, by appointment only. Call (323) 602-0174. [StyleSectionLA]
