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).

  • Julia Restoin Roitfeld Tom Ford V Magazine
    If you don’t already know, Julia Restoin Roitfeld is model and daughter of famed French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld. For V Magazine‘s upcoming issue #69, she is delivering a tiny collection of stunning self-portraits (the kind you don’t find on Myspace) while wearing Tom Ford‘s long awaited womenswear collection. Check out her short interview with the designer and the rest of the shoot below:

    JULIA RESTOIN ROITFELD What made you decide that this was the season to return to fashion?
    TOM FORD I told myself that I would not come back to 
women’s fashion until I felt I had something new to say. I feel that fashion has become too serious and that the actual customer’s needs have not really been addressed. Fashion needs to make one happy. It is a luxury and should enhance one’s quality of life.

    JRR What inspired your collection?
    TF Real clothes for real women. I want to concentrate on my real customer. That’s why I showed idealized versions of her – different women of different ages. It was about individuality, different body types, women who have their own style.

    JRR What do you think fashion needs more of right now?
    TF Spontaneity. Fashion needs to be more fun.

    JRR What personality traits does the Tom Ford woman possess?
    TF My customer has her own sense of style and knows herself well. My goal is to help women become the best version of themselves.

    JRR What is your favorite piece from the collection?
    TF I love every piece. That is like asking someone which one of their children is their favourite.

    JRR Outside fashion, what are you looking forward to this spring?
    TF I have to say more fashion. I love what I am doing right now and can’t wait to start the next collection.

    JRR What was the last thing that made you laugh?
    TF I laugh a good bit so that is a hard question. I suppose a phone call I just had with Richard [Buckley] five minutes ago made me laugh pretty hard. He has a wicked sense of humour.

    JRR What’s your New Year’s resolution?
    TF I don’t have one. I believe in living life the way that you want to live it every day, and if you do that you don’t really need to have New Year’s resolutions.

    Tom Ford will probably go down as the numero uno show of New York Fashion Week. When Anna Wintour, Joe Zee, Nina Garcia, and Carine Roitfeld can do nothing but praise you, it is pretty much set in stone.

    The models selected were as follows:
    Abbey Lee Kershaw, Amber Valletta, Anja Rubik, Carolyn Murphy, Catherine McNeil, Chanel Iman, Daria Werbowy, Du Juan, Edita Vilkeviciute, Freja Beha Erichsen, Monika “Jac” Jagaciak, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Karen Elson, Lakshmi Menon, Liu Wen, Liya Kebede, Natalia Vodianova, and Stella Tennant.

    In addition to the models, Ford selected celebrties to showcase the parts of the collection, which included: Marisa Berenson, Rita Wilson, Julianne Moore, Farida Khelfa, Lisa Eisner, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Lou Doillon, Rachel Feinstein, Emmanuelle Seigner, Rinko Kikuchi, Beyonce and Daphne Guinness.

    Each look was shot by Terry Richardson but won’t be available till January.

    And now, a roundup courtesy of our our favourite fashion Tweeters.

    Sorry guys. No unofficial pics at Tom Ford allowed. But trust me, it was a visual smorgasboard of refined chic and sexiness. #NYFW (@MrJoeZee)

    Tom Ford’s show, which is yet to start, has already redefined intimacy, modernity, luxury, and what is power in the fashion industry. (@DerekBlasberg)

    Ultra glam at Tom Ford. Presented like an old couture show, Tom narrated his parade of chic, sexy clothes on “women that inspired him”. (@MrJoeZee)

    Tom Ford’s show is a couture-style presentation, where Tom (HIMSELF) introduces every model and garment. The entire effect is breath taking. (@DerekBlasberg)

    “And she just turned me straight…” Tom Ford sighs, referring to Joan Smalls (@DerekBlasberg)
