ST LOUIS FASHION WEEK!
Movers and shakers of the fashion world will meet in St. Louis from Oct. 6-12 for shows, soirees and boutique presentations. As the fashion history majors out there know, this town is where the 'juniors" division was born, which may not be couture, folks, but it pays the bills! It's also the birthplace of Baby Phat's Kimora Lee Simmons and the hometown of Nelly and his Apple Bottom Jeans line. Which all may not be couture but again, pays some billz, yo.
Debuting at SLFW will be Nelly's new Red Label line, a boutique-only collection, and the world premire of a line called U. C. Me by Murphy Lee and Kyjuan. All afterparty merriment sponsored by Budweiser ... Select, of course.

Black lipstick is fabulously gothy on the runways and gloriously sinister in magazines, but just how does this haute trend translate in the real world? Enter Lancôme, which just announced the November debut of Color Fever Gloss in Piha Black, created by the company's new artistic director for makeup, New Zealander Aaron de Mey. Black gloss is much more wearable than lipstick, says Mey, and he's even created the perfect undershade to accentuate his dark sheen: Color Fever Lipstick in Piha Red. A true, eye-popping red, it's inspired by the sole of a Christian Louboutin shoe and named for a beach near his childhood home. Wear the colors alone or customize your own shade by mixing them together. (Check out the lips above to see just how that looks.) Mey also suggests using the black gloss on the eyes. Love it? We thought so. Here's the catch:Only 500 of the sets ($48 each) will be available in the United States come November, and only at Bloomingdale’s NYC location on 59th Street, at www.lancome-usa.com and at the company's five boutiques (click here for locations). Don't panic: The waiting list at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street has just opened. CALL NOW -- 212-705-2886 to add your name to the list!
Swag factor: Zero. Lancome publicists told us there were no samples available. Editors just gotta git in line with ev'ryone else!

This is my first season as a freelancer, without the power of a masthead mention to support my application. So I was thrilled to get the nod, and to all of you out there in PR-ville, please don't overbook your shows but please do let me in --I will be spinning queries like there's no tomorrow!
