Fashion News: Kristin Chenoweth grabs eyes at American Country Awards

December 6, 2011 |  7:58 am

Kristin Chenoweth dressed to get attention at Monday's American Country AwardsKristin Chenoweth dressed to get attention at Monday's American Country Awards, held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Onstage in one bit she performed as co-host, she wore jeans with a grotesquely padded rear end. But her red-carpet dress from the fall 2011 HONOR collection was pretty eye-grabbing too, leading me to the question: How low cut is too low cut? [Celebuzz]

Do you ever look at photos of models -- lingerie models, especially -- and think real women don't look like that? If you look at H&M's holiday lingerie ads, you'd be right to think that way. It seems that the ads use computer-generated bodies (with photos of real women's heads attached through digital magic). [The Cut]

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld has designed a lingerie collection for Kiki de Montparnesse that will be available for sale online and in boutiques starting Dec. 14. [The Cut] 

Some items from the final clothing collection that singer Amy Winehouse designed for Fred Perry were released for sale on Tuesday to coincide with the release of her final album, "Lioness: Hidden Treasures." Proceeds will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. [Telegraph]

Does the music piped into stores annoy you? Gap is trying something different, teaming with streaming music start-up Roqbot in an experiment that allows customers to use their Androids or iPhones to decide what music to play. The experiment is going on at a Gap store in San Francisco. [Rolling Stone] 

Michael Kors announced its initial public offering last week, as I mentioned Monday, and now Kors' business partners, Silas Chou and Lawrence Stroll, are said to be eyeing Vera Wang as a potential business to invest in. [WWD] (Subscription required.)

Wang, by the way, designed the blue gown Michelle Obama wore to the Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday night. [Los Angeles Times]

Model Lauren Scruggs, who runs the fashion blog LOLO and who had worked in wardrobe on "Gossip Girl," was severely injured when she accidentally walked into a small plane's spinning propeller at an airport in Texas on Saturday. [People]
