“Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it. Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy.”

The “major models” – Raquel Zimmermann, Joan Smalls, and Daria Werbowy
– of Vogue’s Shape issue
(out again this month) are apparently here to talk candidly about body, brains, and the secret to killer confidence
. While these video-bytes tend to be an outlet for famous beauties
to tell you how often they don’t
work out, Vogue
have done it a little differently.
“Women are their hardest critics, and we need to learn how to accept ourselves, how we are,” says Smalls. “Some of the models, you’d be surprised backstage, that their body isn’t perfect either. It depends also on how you dress, how you present yourself, but don’t be fooled by models being perfect specimens because we’re far from that.”

For the Fall/Winter 2011 show set in the Palazzo Serbelloni, the garments felt sectarian to the location. We’re talking ruby velvet bodices and dirndls, among other elite-cum-bucolic associations. The details were brimming with bells and whistles (not literally), and the trademark prints did not once disappoint. See the top five looks below!
