Anna Wintour Grace Coddington Candy Magazine
After the success of “The Devil Wears Prada” and “The September Issue“, Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington became targets of many spoofs and critics. The fashion industry is a behemoth playground of replication and criticism, which is why I was quite surprised to fall in love with Brett Lloyd‘s inspired-drag photography of the Vogue Ladies in Charge. What is the cause? Candy magazine: the outrageous publication that showcased a well-breasted James Franco plastered in makeup, and ‘Lady Gaga‘ using a male toilet cubicle. The shots, styling and Drag Queens are flawless; even the male version of the internet’s most controversial child fashion blogger, Tavi Gevinson. View Post

Fashions Night Out 2011
It’s official, September 8, 2011 is going to be the third birthday of a very important event – Fashion’s Night Out. As you would expect, we don’t have a lot of details just yet, just some vague ‘quotes’ to the likeness of “next year’s event will once again expose shoppers to new stores and products through events and promotions.”

Vogue.com has been blogging about the news:

While details on what to expect are still emerging, one thing is for sure: After putting together the largest public fashion show in New York City history last September, there is no telling what you can expect this year. We can promise, however, that across the globe, from Brooklyn to Berlin, it will be a night to remember—and all in support of all aspects of the fashion industry.

Hooray!

Zoolander 2
In the most high fashion news I will report all year, Ben Stiller has announced that the Zoolander 2 movie has the green light and they are actively working on getting it released late next year.

Will Derek still be running the Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too? Or will he, in fact, have realized that there is nothing more important in life than being ridiculously good looking? According to director/screenwriter Justin Theroux, Zoolander 2 could see the guys dealing with getting older in the industry de la fashion, saying ‘they’re about to ring 40’s bell. They have to claw their way back into the fashion industry in some way or another.’

Don’t worry…these are tears of joy.

Nosh Weekend Detox
Detoxing in London is hard and necessary, especially in the fashion industry. With events that essentially pour drinks down your throat, indulgent lunch meetings, and nights that never end on the right side of midnight, you can’t complain. However, sometimes I feel like my body is screaming “Toxins! Toxins!” at me as I can add an allergy to wheat and gluten to the above list (that is frequently ignored).

Thank God for Nosh Detox. Not everyone can afford the time, effort or money to book into a spa, hide out in a health club, or fly to Mallorca for a weekend detox. Now, well-being delivery service Nosh has developed a unique Weekend Detox package to help you detox, lose any ‘unhealthy’ weight and improve overall health and well-being, so that you feel and look noticeably better after just three days. Nutritional Technician and author Geeta Sidhu-Robb founded the Chelsea-based company in 2004 – I can’t believe I’ve just got around to trying it out!

The Weekend Detox package comes with an ‘Immune Booster Box‘ that helps you with hemp oil, aloe vera, an ayurvedic cleanse, bee pollen, homemade salt scrubs and herbal teas to help you through your detox. Everything was absolutely delicious, and a fantastic learning experience. I constantly felt full, healthy, and full of energy – didn’t reach for a single cup of coffee. Never has a detox worked so fast for me! A Nosh Juice Fast is also available, as well as the ‘ABC Plan’. For further information on them – visit here after taking a look at a sample menu below.

Rachel Zoe Gossip Girl
This season of Gossip Girl is going to be especially chic. There were already reports circulating saying that fashion industry giants Karl Lagerfeld and Vogue editors Hamish Bowles and Lauren Santo Domingo would appear on the show, and now it looks like everyone’s favourite celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe is going to be on the show, too!

Somewhere in between all of the shows and parties she’s been invited to over New York Fashion Week, she found time to schlep to Queens to tape a few lines. The workaholic is starring as herself in an episode whose story line centers around plans for Blair Waldorf’s 20th birthday party, a source has said. Strangely, even though she is perfectly capable, she has also agreed to let the show’s wardrobe department dress her.

“Rachel plays herself in the scene and has a handful of lines to remember,” the insider said, adding that designer Cynthia Rowley and Elle magazine’s creative director, Joe Zee, will also make guests appearances in the same episode. Set your DVRS…twice.
