Stella Tennant Italian Vogue Planking

  • You’ve seen the Vogue Italia cover, now you can see Stella Tennant planking in the accompanying editorial.
  • Apparently, though the CFDA has a recommended age limit of 16 for models walking in shows, it has been reported that 14-year-old Kylie Jenner (of the “Kardashian Klan“) will walk in Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn show during Fashion Week. I guess when Avril’s boyfriend is Kylie’s half-brother (Brody Jenner), the rules need not apply. Both Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are expected to sit front row at the show.
  • Fashion designer Nicole Miller will feature as one of the designers getting advice from Joe Zee in the second series of his Sundance show “All On The Line“.
  • “Have you noticed how much make-up girls are wearing these days? It’s because it’s cheaper than buying clothes. I love beauty products. At Gucci I’d spend days working with a make-up artist getting the show to look right. I was never drawn to walking in women’s shoes that’s maybe why some of them hurt. I never had a desire to wear the clothes. I’m probably the only man in England who doesn’t want to dress in drag. But make-up? That I’m serious about.” – Tom Ford to the Telegraph
  • Blonde model trend! First there was Heidi Klum with Project Runway, then there was Angela Lindvall who was recently picked to host a special all-star edition of Project Runway. Now? Fellow sunshine blonde Molly Sims is commandeering the latest Runway spinoff, Project Accessory.
  • When asked what he would save if his house were burning down Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld responded, “Which house? I have several.” Not newsworthy, but note-worthy.
