Hems Take A Hike But Hit Modest Stride PARIS Designer Karl Lagerfeld opened the Chanel spring show on Monday with Ines de la Fressange strutting down the runway in a skirt so tiny it would have driven the great Coco bonkers. Mademoiselle Chanel hated minis, saying that women were showing their meat. Lagerfeld often says today is today and went on to show some jackets without any skirts at all. The Comtesse Jacqueline de Ribes, far from showing meat, sent out a modest quartet of mannequins in tomato red suits, three with above the knee skirts, one with pants. Then out came the midcalf skirts: in olive, saffron and periwinkle. Romes Valentino, who shows his collections along with the French in the courtyard of the Louvre, also began with red: a smashing broad shouldered coat Moncler Gerard Vest with a fit and flare silhouette in a calf covering length. Sonia Rykiels sent out a single model wearing a black knit something. At first resembling a long skirt, it turned out to be a pair of wide pants with a dramatically dropped crotch around the knees. This model was followed by another in a very long black back wrap skirt. Designers generally open their shows with something that not only makes a visual impact but illustrates their fashion philosophy for the season as well, so there should be a message in there somewhere. But these openings were, for the most part, attention grabbing ploys, because when it comes to skirt lengths for next winter though there are very short ones and surprisingly long ones most are right around the knees. Take Lagerfeld. In both his Chanel show on Monday and in the collection he designs under his own name, which he presented late last week, he showed many models in just jackets and tights, or dresses and coats that were short enough to be jackets. In both collections, he also included lots of long skirts slit nearly thigh high on the side (though Chanels had more gold buttons) and some of the same short front/long back dippy dipping skirts. But of the two, the Chanel collection far snappier, incidentally had many more suits that ended somewhere around the knees, where most women like their skirts to end; there were also more combos: big, long coats over short, narrow skirts. One of the biggest applause getters for daytime was a red suit with a one button (gold, of course) shaped jacket and an above the knee skirt. Still, black kept coming back. In fact, almost every outfit worn by De La Fressange (the Coco fragrance Moncler Men Stand Collar T-Shirt Dark Blue model) was black, from her opening (navy gold bedecked jacket with black skirt), to a great long raincoat, a suit with lots of gold buttons and a white satin blouse with black velvet long skirt. Her finale gown was a halter necked red satin affair, with only half of a skirt from the sides to the back which showed her legs to their best advantage. Actress Joan Collins was watching from a front row seat at the De Ribes showing, and when style No. 6038 hit the runway, her eyes lit up: She started taking notes. The violet silk crepe dress short with its neckline plunging to about the first rib, had some shirring and draping through the center, accented by a thigh high slit, at the top of which resided a big black bow. Collins sat amid one of the most prestigious front rows seen to date. Among her companions were Paloma Picasso, Marie Helene de Rothschild, Bernadette Chirac (wife of the mayor of Paris), Claude Pompidou and, down the way a bit, two princesses. What they saw was a collection of ladies who lunch suits and coats, most often in knee lengths, plus evening clothes for galas. Pants were in short supply, but when they appeared they were cut exactly like the ones the designer was wearing when she took her bow: perfectly straight and perfectly tailored. Valentino, too, did away with any detailing or funny shapes for his pants: fairly simple in cut, narrow or moderately wide, often in gray flannel for day and silk for evening. Sonia Rykiel concentrated on very long, easy moving skirts, be they in her floral prints or solid knits, and pants. Though she showed some tailored pants suits, her favorite silhouettes are unusual: some full, Monlcer Waistcoat - Women Vest Blue harem influenced styles, and the low slung ones that just may be what some women are looking for.

Hess CEO Discusses Q1 2012 Results Faisel Khan Citigroup Inc, Research DivisionGood day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the First Quarter 2012 Hess Corporation Earnings Conference Call. My name is Chanel, and I will be your operator for today. [ Instructions] As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes. I would now like to turn the conference over to Moncler Rousseau Men Down Jackets Black Red Mr. Jay Wilson, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please proceed. Thank you, Chanel. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for participating in our first quarter earnings conference call. Today s conference call contains projections and other forward looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ from those Moncler Coats Women With Breasted Stood Collar Purple expressed or implied in such statements. With me today are John Hess, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer; Greg Hill, President, Worldwide Exploration and Production; and John Rielly, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. I will now turn the call over to John Hess. Thank you, Jay, and welcome to our first quarter conference call. I will make a few brief comments, after which John Rielly will review our financial results. Net income for the first quarter of 2012 was $545 million. Compared to the year ago quarter, our earnings were negatively impacted by lower crude oil sales volumes and higher operating costs, which more than offset the impact of higher realized crude oil and natural gas selling prices. Exploration and Production earned $635 million. Crude oil and natural gas production averaged 397,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, which was roughly flat with the year ago quarter. Higher production from the Bakken in North Dakota, the Pangkah Field in Indonesia and the Malaysia/Thailand Joint Development Area offset the impact of North Sea natural gas asset sales and natural field declines Moncler Women For Coats Ocre Butterfly Collar Black in Equatorial Guinea. In North Dakota, net production from the Bakken averaged 42,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the first quarter compared to 25,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the year ago quarter. Thus far in April, net production from the Bakken has averaged 47,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. While we expect the monthly average to continue to increase throughout the rest of the year, we now expect the average for the full year may come in somewhat lower than our original estimate of 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. As usual, we will update this estimate as well as our overall company production forecast on the July conference call. At the Llano Field in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, the operator is currently performing a workover on the Llano 3 well, which was shut in for mechanical reasons in the first quarter of last year. We expect that production from this well will resume by the end of May. At Valhall in Norway, field redevelopment is expected to be completed in the third quarter. Net production averaged 22,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the first quarter. In Libya, net production averaged 18,000 barrels per day in the first quarter and has averaged 21,000 barrels per day in April. With regard to exploration in Ghana, on March 27, we spud the Hickory North well in the Deepwater Tano Cape Three Points Block. This prospect is located 3.5 miles west of our Paradise discovery and the well will test reservoirs similar to those found at Paradise, as well as deeper targets. Following completion of Hickory North, we plan to drill a prospect called Sisili, a large structure located approximately 5.5 miles southeast of Paradise. As a result of recently signed farmout agreements, which are subject to final government approvals, Hess working interest in the block will be reduced from 90% to 35%. Offshore Brunei. The Julong East well on Block CA 1, in which Hess has a 13.5% interest, encountered hydrocarbons and the operator is currently evaluating the results. The rig has now moved to the southeast to spud the Jagus East well, which will test an offset to the Gumusut Field, currently under development on the Malaysian side of the border. Later in the second quarter, we plan to resume exploration drilling in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Ness Deep, located in Green Canyon 507, is a Miocene prospect in which Hess has a 50% working interest. BHP has the remaining 50% and is the operator. Turning to Marketing and Refining. We reported net income of $11 million for the first quarter of 2012. The previously announced shutdown of the HOVENSA joint venture refinery was completed in the first quarter. As a result of the charge taken last quarter, there was no net income impact from HOVENSA s first quarter operations. Marketing earnings were $22 million compared to $68 million in last year s first quarter. Retail marketing faced rising wholesale prices during the first quarter, which put pressure on fuel margins. Gasoline volumes on a per site basis were flat, while total convenience store sales were down 2% versus last year s first quarter. Energy Marketing earnings were lower than last year s first quarter as a result of significantly warmer weather this past winter.
