Fashion: Where Obamas, Marc Jacobs, Heidi Klum spent the holidays

January 4, 2012 |  8:04 am

The Obamas return
We all know the Obamas spent the holidays in Hawaii — there they are, arriving back dressed for much chillier Washington, D.C. on Tuesday — but where have other fashion-fabulous familiars of All the Rage readers been? A lot of them in St. Barth's, apparently (such as Marc Jacobs, Tamara Mellon, Rachel Zoe and Kimora Lee Simmons).  Others were spotted in Los Cabos (Cindy Crawford), Barbados (Rihanna), Miami (Naomi Campbell) and Aspen (Heidi Klum, Seal, Goldie Hawn).

Besides specializing in soccer, David Beckham seems to specialize in underwear, which he has modeled for Emporio Armani, and he has a new line coming out with H&M on Feb. 2. Beckham worked with a design team to come up with the nine-piece collection. We'd show you a picture of him modeling some of it, but it's a little too hot for a family newspaper ... um, blog.

It turns out there are at least two pregnant Victoria's Secret angels: Alessandra Ambrosio, who recently  revealed she was two months pregnant when she strutted the runway in the lingerie company's annual fashion show in November, and Lily Aldridge, who announced at the end of December that she too is expecting.

Dakota Fanning seems to have grown up. At 17 she's appearing not on the cover of Seventeen magazine but on the February cover of the racy Cosmopolitan. [The Cut]

"Project Runway All-Stars" premieres Thursday, featuring  a new lineup of judges (Georgina Chapman, Isaac Mizrahi), host (Angela Lindvall) and mentor (Joanna Coles). [The Cut]

Tim Gunn, "Project Runway's" beloved mentor for nine seasons, is slated to co-host daytime talk/reality/ weight-loss show "The Revolution," which starts up Jan. 16 on ABC. [Fashionista]

The Jason Wu for Target collection, scheduled to launch Feb. 5, has a feminine spirit inspired by French film but doesn't copy his main collection. [T Magazine]

After 36 years, Liz Claiborne is changing its name to Fifth & Pacific. [WWD] (Subscription required.)
