  • On Friday, Vogue Hommes International editor Francesco Cominelli was found dead in his Paris apartment. No more details have been released, and I really don’t know how to write news pieces like this. I am inexpressively saddened that we have lost a wonderful, talented man. He was one of the most intelligent, innovative and inspiring figures in men’s fashion. Rest in peace.

  • Though she lost her spot as judge on the US version of The X Factor, Cheryl Cole is reported to be negotiating a deal with Channel 4 in hopes to host a fashion-based TV programme that will have “a bit more depth to it than just a frivolous fashion show.”

  • While most models dream of working even one show during the International Fashion Weeks, there is one 19-year-old model out there who lived out every model’s dream for Spring/Summer 2012.

    In her ninth season, teenager Karlie Kloss – who is also a brilliant commercial model – walked a total of 34 shows (THIRTY FOUR!), including big guns like Jean Paul Gaultier, Lanvin, Jason Wu, Michael Kors, and Elie Saab.
