How would you like your kid to became a baby model for GAP? - GAP SEARCHES FOR THE NEW FACES OF BABYGAP AND GAPKIDS WITH ITS FOURTH ANNUAL CASTING CALL CONTEST



Gap Teams Up with Disney Family.com for a Nationwide Search to Find America’s Brightest Personalities and Most Adorable Young Faces. 


Gap’s nationwide search for babies and kids with a twinkle in their eye, charm in their smile and an expressive personality to match has officially started. Today Gap launched its fourth annual Gap Casting Call — a nationwide contest to find the next faces of babyGap and GapKids. This year, Gap is teaming up with online parenting site, Disney Family.com, offering phenomenal prizes and more chances to win with its first-ever America’s Fan Favorite and Voters’ Sweepstakes awards.


“Casting Call is one of our favorite programs and this year we want to make it bigger and better than ever,” said Pam Wallack, president of babyGap, GapKids and GapMaternity.  “The contest is a unique and fun way for us to interact with our customers and their children and we are extremely excited to be partnering with Disney, a brand synonymous with not only families but also family entertainment, to enhance the program and add a little something special to this year’s Casting Call.”
How Casting Call Works:

Entry Phase: From Sept. 22 to Oct. 22, parents across the country can enter their child in the contest by visiting gap.com/castingcall to upload a photo of their baby (ages four and under) and kid (ages five to 10) for a chance to be featured in an upcoming babyGap or GapKids campaign in Feb. 2010.


The Finalists: Once the entry phase closes on Oct. 22, judges will narrow down the field to twenty finalists — 10 babies (five girls and five boys) for babyGap and 10 kids (five girls and five boys) for GapKids. The 20 finalists will be flown to San Francisco with their families to participate in an official Gap photo shoot and will receive prize packages, including a $500 Gap gift card and a deluxe Disney gift bag.

Voting Phase: On Dec. 7, the twenty finalists will be unveiled and voting will begin on gap.com/castingcall. It will then be up to America to decide the next faces of babyGap and GapKids for a 2010 campaign. Voters can vote once a day every day for babyGap [1 boy and 1 girl] and GapKids [1 boy and 1 girl]. And contestants won’t be the only ones with a chance to win great prizes. This year, Gap and Disney Family.com are offering a special Voter Sweepstakes. For each vote cast at gap.com/castingcall from Dec. 7 – Dec. 21, voters will be entered in a contest to win a weeklong Luxury IncludedR Caribbean family vacation to Beaches Resorts in Turks and Caicos or Jamaica.

The Winners: Four children will be selected as winners of the Gap Casting Call — one baby girl and one baby boy for babyGap and one girl and one boy for GapKids. The winners will be featured in the windows of babyGap and GapKids stores from coast-to-coast and will receive other incredible prizes from Gap and Disney including a $1,000 Gap gift card and a Disney on Broadway package in New York or Las Vegas for a two-night VIP Lion King experience.
“In addition to inspiring great ideas for family life, Disney Family.com and the Gap are now giving moms a chance to showcase the kids that make it all worthwhile,” said Emily Smith, vice president, Disney Online Mom and Family Portfolio.

Introducing the Fan Favorite Award:

For the first time in Casting Call history, Gap is introducing an award for America’s “Fan Favorite.” The lucky child who receives the most votes at gap.com/castingcall starting on Sept. 22 will win a weeklong Luxury IncludedR Caribbean family vacation to Beaches Resorts in Turks and Caicos or Jamaica.


Fan Favorite voting runs from Sept. 22 through Nov. 17 and the winner will be announced on Dec. 7, along with the 20 finalists. To help get the word out, parents can leverage the power of Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, and good ole’ fashioned e-mail to help get votes for their adorable tot.
To help spread the word about their charismatic Casting Call contestant, parents can create a “printable,” an adorable mini Gap shopping bag photo holder with arms and legs to showoff their aspiring model. When parents submit a photo of their child, they can opt to print out the printable character that sits on the edge of a table or desk and holds a “Vote for me” sign.

MAC Style Black Collection



Available now, the Mac style Black Collection featuring a new trend, the new goth, a hybrid of Fashion and Art, and a fixture on the glamorous, modern gallery scene. “No longer a ghoul, but a sophisticated, international creature with makeup that changes the mood to permanent midnight around the clock. Lips, nails, eyes, there’s no more dramatic way to declare your desire, separate your sensibility, celebrate your sexual magnetism. Something’s smoldering. Mad, bad and delirious. Danger boy. Androgynous girl. Explicitly erotic, whip-smart exotic, and in-your-face expressive. Wicked ideas, archly executed with a slash of Greasepaint Stick and a slightly-curled upper lip.” . I sooo love black eyeliner and black nail polish but maybe you should keep black lipstick in your brush case until Halloween, unless that's your style anyway...

Louis Vuitton Monogram Double Jeu Neo-Alma






The Double Jeu Néo-Alma from Loui's Vuitton Fall 2009 collction offers a fun twist to the iconic version. Dubbed after double play which basically translates to 'two for the price of one', the Néo Alma features a clever bag-in-bag concept which means that inside the Monogram embossed leather Alma, there's another bag made from lush jacquard textile with metallic threads, stud details and chain with hand-braided leather knots. It sure adds a new definition if used together and would also look great if worn individually.

The Néo-Alma is very much similar to the Eclipse Version. Both bags has long and comfy flat leather handles, hotel room key inspired zip puller made from golden brass hardware, and leather base. The only difference is that evidently, the Double Jeu Néo-Alma is made from monogram embossed leather with a striking LV monogram golden brass stud detail.

Monogram Double Jeu Néo-Alma comes in two colors: Black and Blue and measures 11" x 8.6" x 5.7" (the same as the Eclipse Alma). Its available at Louis Vuitton for $4500. Its a bit pricey but you get two bags, so its definitely worth it. LVoe it!!!









Louis Vuitton 20th Anniversary of the Monogram Shawl

To celebrate the anniversary of its emblematic scarf, Louis Vuitton has created three versions of the iconic Monogram Shawl, illustrating the trends of the past 20 years. I LVoe them all!! Which one do you like most??

Monogram Shawl Rock
Vinyl Touch






In tribute to the vinyl years, the Rock shawl celebrates the wild side of rock. The shawl is made from wool with dyed jacquard pattern and silk which undergoes a special lamination process which gives it a glamorous hint of vinyl. Monogram Shawl Rock comes in a black pouch with a pink Louis Vuitton signature. Available at Louis Vuitton stores and online at louisvuitton.com for $745.


Monogram Shawl Pois
Yin & Yang Japanese Minimalism





Referencing the Japanese wave and the quiet beauty of Japanese minimalism, the Monogram Pois shawl is a wonderfully comfortable wrap named after 'spots', which is predominantly showcased as soft black velvet dots over the classic Monogram base for a Yin & Yang look. Made from silk and wool with dyed jacquard pattern, the shawl is available at Louis Vuitton for $745 and comes in a black pouch with pink Louis Vuitton signature.


Monogram Shawl Grunge
Vintage Grunge Look





Crumpled to reflect the alternative era of grunge movement, this striking shawl offers a touch of luxury with an edge. It's made from silk and wool with fringe details. Grunge tops its looks by having studs and metallic ornaments around the Louis Vuitton Paris signature. Monogram Shawl Grunge is available at Louis Vuitton for $745 and also comes in a black pouch with pink Louis Vuitton signature.

Louis Vuitton Mechanic Pearls Collection

Louis Vuitton's Mechanic Pearls collection is a stunning depiction of the fusion of ambivalent feminine pearls with the industrial bicycle chain. The contrast of the two disparate materials creates a feeling of ''elegant glam-rock''.



This exquisite bracelet features 11 Swarovski glass pearls and a lacquered black pearl set in chain made from steel and golden brass. The bracelet also has a black beveled padlock with a Louis Vuitton engraved golden metallic plate. Its available at Louis Vuitton for approximately US$700. LVoe it!



This amazing chocker necklace also features Swarovski glass pearls (22 pieces) and one lacquered in black 'soft touché' set in chain crafted from steel and golden brass. The necklace also has a black beveled padlock with a Louis Vuitton engraved golden metallic plate. Its available at Louis Vuitton for approximately US$1050.



Last but not the least, this eye catching oversized hairpin is ideal for women who like to create a distinctive style. It features a large resin pearl with the nail made from golden brass engraved with 'Hiver 2009'. I think that it would also be amazing as brooch on a scarf or a jacket, just imagine it.. LVoe it!!! Its available at Louis Vuitton for approximately US$200.





First Look: Louis Vuitton Lebels Collection

Comprised mostly of affordable little knick knacks, they are embellished with old world images of luggage stickers. Apparently, these lables were collected by Louis' grandson, Gaston-Louis.
