Karlie Kloss Vogue

Karlie Kloss

  • Wham! Bam! How gorgeous does Karlie Kloss look on the December 2011 cover of Vogue Germany? This, being released less than a week after she joined the Victoria’s Secret runway Angel Team, is capping off a wonderful year for the 18-year-old model.

  • As you may remember, Filipa Fino – longtime Vogue accessories editor – left the magazine in June, but left her reasons up to anyone’s opinion. Until now. On November 28th, she is releasing a 40-page holiday gift guide for Cyber Monday, and then following it up with a brand new free online accessories magazine called Fino File in February! Yay!

  • Karl Lagerfeld‘s master plan for economy recovery:

    “I think they should make a tax so that when you earn a certain amount of money, you have to spend a certain amount on shopping. To buy whatever…and that way, we create tons of jobs. I think it’s a good idea. What I hate is people with a lot of money who don’t spend it.”

    Agreed.

  • Unfortunately, some terribly sad news – philanthropist and cosmetic-industry leader Evelyn Lauder has lost her battle with ovarian cancer. My thoughts are with her friends and family.

  • Gianfranco Ferré have finally (officially) replaced designers Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi (who left the brand in April) with Stefano Citron and Federico Piaggi – the pair of “unknowns” who produced Ferre’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

  • On Friday, thirty-one-year-old Julia Restoin-Roitfeld announced that her and her boyfriend, Robert Konjic, are expecting! (Via Facebook, of all places). This means Carine Roitfeld, in a short six months, will become the hottest grandmother alive.

  • The Hunger Games trailer has been released! From a fashion point of view (because the story speaks for itself), I could not be more excited to see my beloved Lenny Kravitz as Katniss Everdeen’s stylist (sneak peak below).
