Been there, done that .?.?. my usual response to someone landing a major star to promote their lipstick or their fashion collection or their store. David Beckham for H&M, Julia Roberts for Lancôme. Lovely, but ho-hum.

But now I’m impressed. Our own Americana Manhasset scored Uggie, the scene-stealing canine star of “The Artist,” to appear in its fall catalog. The lookbook (featuring styles from Dior, Prada, Vuitton and more) along with a companion (mostly silent) film called “Speechless,” is an ode to the whole pre-talkie era. Americana went with the theme because it was so strongly reflected in the fall collections.

Check out “Speechless” at Oh, it also stars model Karlie Kloss. Like I said, been there, done that.
