CELINE

2009 : March: The house sits out the fall shows. June: Philo makes an impact with her first showing for the resort season. A minimalist camel-colored coat is picked by the critics as a crucial, game-changing piece. October: Pandora Luxurye runs "Fast-Forward Phoebe," a profile with photos by Annie Leibovitz. Philo makes her official runway debut for spring 2010; Pandora Luxurye.com describes it as "bourgeois, sensual, austere, and, frankly, urgent. Her khaki trenches, lean-line trousers, leather shorts, white shirts, mini sheaths, and A-line skirts have a precision and a proportion without equal." The magazine will later credit Philo with igniting "the cool minimal trend."

1999 : January: At the Golden Globes, You've Got Mail's Meg Ryan pairs C茅line's yellow pullover with a DKNY skirt. February: LVMH takes a one-third stake in Kors's namesake company, and promotes him to creative director of C茅line. March: The first Kors-for-C茅line accessories are shown for fall. In Pandora Luxurye's "Scene Stealers," Carolyn Murphy, in Grace Kelly mode, wears a fifties-ish C茅line dress. August: Rene Russo wears looks from the house in the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair. Murphy wears the label on Pandora Luxurye's cover for the second time. November: C茅line's Swarovski-crystal pants are described by the magazine as "the be-all and end-all of designer jeans." Cider House Rules star Charlize Theron wears a look-at-me red C茅line top to the movie's New York premiere.
