Vogue Olsen Twins Cover
A well-deserved “FINALLY” goes to the Olsen Twins for their Craig McDean-lensed cover of Vogue’s Best Dressed issue 2011. They’ve been in fashion’s public eye for almost their entire life, guys!

“They (the Olsens) get it right a lot of the time and then sometimes they don’t get it right. That’s actually great because it shows that it’s their hands reaching into their wardrobes. They don’t have someone telling them, ‘This is cool, this is hot, this is what you should be wearing.’ It comes from within them. It’s instinctual. […] Look at what they’ve done with (their fashion labels) The Row and Elizabeth and James. They are legitimate fashion forces.”
Vogue‘s Fashion News Director, Mark Holgate

Including them in the issue – as it is dedicated to international superstar siblings – is Beyonce and Solange Knowles, Kate and Pippa Middleton, Claire and Virginie Courtins-Clarins girls, Kate and Rooney Mara (no bad blood, she got last month’s cover!), Dakota and Elle Fanning, Poppy and Cara Delevigne, and Jane Birkin’s gorgeous daughters – Lou Doillon and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

FASHION PHEW! The issue will be released in five short days.

To see more photos of Mary-Kate and Ashley from the spread, as well as their latest and greatest promo video for StyleMint (imagine planking, storking, ‘plowling’ and owling in It’s a Wonderful Life, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Charlie Brown and The Wizard of Oz!), see below!

Stella Tennant Italian Vogue Planking

  • You’ve seen the Vogue Italia cover, now you can see Stella Tennant planking in the accompanying editorial.
  • Apparently, though the CFDA has a recommended age limit of 16 for models walking in shows, it has been reported that 14-year-old Kylie Jenner (of the “Kardashian Klan“) will walk in Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn show during Fashion Week. I guess when Avril’s boyfriend is Kylie’s half-brother (Brody Jenner), the rules need not apply. Both Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are expected to sit front row at the show.
  • Fashion designer Nicole Miller will feature as one of the designers getting advice from Joe Zee in the second series of his Sundance show “All On The Line“.
  • “Have you noticed how much make-up girls are wearing these days? It’s because it’s cheaper than buying clothes. I love beauty products. At Gucci I’d spend days working with a make-up artist getting the show to look right. I was never drawn to walking in women’s shoes that’s maybe why some of them hurt. I never had a desire to wear the clothes. I’m probably the only man in England who doesn’t want to dress in drag. But make-up? That I’m serious about.” – Tom Ford to the Telegraph
  • Blonde model trend! First there was Heidi Klum with Project Runway, then there was Angela Lindvall who was recently picked to host a special all-star edition of Project Runway. Now? Fellow sunshine blonde Molly Sims is commandeering the latest Runway spinoff, Project Accessory.
  • When asked what he would save if his house were burning down Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld responded, “Which house? I have several.” Not newsworthy, but note-worthy.
