LOS ANGELES, Jun 19, 2010 / FW/ — While the editors are in Europe attending the menswear season, I will be writing Seen & Heard this week.
And we begin with Taylor Lautner whose popularity continues to rise.
Attending “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” premiere in Rome, the young actor who plays Jacob Black in the series wore a harcoal grey two-button wool suit, white cotton shirt, and tie all from the Spring 2010 men’s Calvin Klein Collection, designed by Italo Zucchelli, the brands’ Men’s Creative Director.
The premiere was held at the Auditorium Conciliazione in Rome, Italy on Thursday, Jun 17, 2010.
Now, on our side of the pond, Christina Aguilera belted out the Star Spangled Banner, the U.S. national anthem at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Jun 16, Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Lakers and the Celtics.
The singer wore a black bustier dress from Guilty Brotherhood Spring / Summer 2010 collection.
Alright, this is old news for Lakers fans like me and of course for those who follow the NBA because as we all know, the Lakers won its 16th title on the NBA on Jun 17th, moving them 1 championship behind Boston’s 17 titles for the overall NBA leader.
Meanwhile, north of the 49th parallel, Katy Perry was spotted in Toronto, Ontario on Jun 17th wearing a silk cherry print Moschino halter dress from the Moschino Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

Tilda Swinton continues to catch waves of admiration with her performance at I AM LOVE which opened in New York and Los Angeles yesterday.
Tilda who plays Emma, a Russian immigrant who became the matriarch of a Milanese family in I AM LOVE, attended the New York premiere wearing Fendi.

Speaking of New York, Tori Spelling was seen leaving Rockefeller Center after appearing at the “Today Show” last Thursday, where she promoted her new tell-all book “uncharted terriTORI”.
Tori Spelling looked fresh and polished in a frock! by Tracy Reese dress from the current spring collection.
And finally, we are back here in Los Angeles where the 7th season of “Entourage” premiered last Thursday night.
Actress Perrey Reeves, who plays “Mrs. Ari” in the series, accessorized her red dress with K.Brunini’s Body Armour cuffs (on both arms) when she attended the premiere.
Born in the mountains, at 14,000 feet, upon a vista in Telluride, the BODY ARMOR collection from Katey Brunini is the final chapter in her Shapes of Strength series. The designer’s goal throughout: to strengthen women with potent images found in nature.
