Lottie Moss

  • So, remember when Kate Moss‘ little sister was causing some “Hey, look! She’s beautiful, too!” commotion when Kate’s wedding photos were released? Well, now she’s a model. See: 13-year-old Lottie Moss, above. (Photos by Andrea Carter Bowman).

  • Well this is interesante! Moda Operandi is becoming a serious force to be reckoned with, as they have just announced the hiring/pillaging of Taylor Tomasi Hill filling the role of MO’s artistic director.

  • Apparently, Marc Jacobs is no longer the name-of-the-moment in regards to taking over John Galliano at Dior. As Jacobs insisted on taking his Louis Vuitton team with him to Dior – which would leave Vuitton pretty helpless – if he were to make the move, he has been removed from talks. The position still remains open, and I still believe if Riccardo Tisci was to shake his brand loyalty, it would be his in a hot second.

  • Look how super-dupily-smoking-hot Demi Lovato looked on the 2011 Latin Grammy Awards red carpet! In a very un-Disney move, she wore a berry-coloured Roland Mouret Compeyson zip-front gown, made of stretch-crepe and actually worn back-to-front.

    By turning the plunging back into a plunging neckline, employing some major curls, and bronzing to the high heavens, she has made the look – impressively – her own. Style headed in the right direction, Miss Lovato.

  • When pressed for their comments regarding Madonna’s foray into further sectors of the fashion industry:

    “Maybe next season, we should sing a song.”
    Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

  • This week in Milan? Giorgio Armani wished he could “have a fresh start as an architect”; not too off-topic, considering he just opened his latest luxury hotel in the fashion capital, and announced plans to open others in London, Paris and New York.

  • Lily Cole, everyone’s favourite red-haired model-turned-actress (ok..so she’s the only one), has a cameo role in the forthcoming movie “Snow White & the Huntsman“. If you want to spot her in the trailer, look for the girl being obliterated by Charlize Theron. Poor lil beauty.

  • BIG NEWS! Five months after the brand was acquired by private equity firm Labelux, Jimmy Choo is losing co-founder and chief creative officer Tamara Mellon! Not only Tamara, but also the company’s current CEO, Joshua Shulman. Considering Labelux paid $800 million for brand ownership, I doubt they are planning to live on the streets, but it does raise questions regarding motive for both of the talented fashion figures to leave.
  • Scorsese Kate Bosworth

    “I want to get away with you…and…find a world where words like that don’t exist.”

    Harper’s Bazaar has decided to celebrate Martin Scorsese‘s latest film, Hugo, with a fashionable recast of some of his best movies and the most poignant scenes in them. The casting is impeccable, and the photography – courtesy of Jason Schmidt – is faultless.

    First off? Kate Bosworth (in pearl-clutching Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci!) in “The Age of Innocence“.

    Ex Stasis Matthew Stone
    I am totally and completely blown away by this editorial. Mariacarla Boscono, Lea T, Saskia de Brauw and Chris Moore are setting hearts on fire in Dazed & Confused‘s October 2011 cover story. In “Ex Stasis” – lens by Matthew Stone and styled by Katy England – we are essentially being force-fed Givenchy in the most beautiful way imaginable. Riccardo Tisci is going to be a happy fellow.

    Givenchy SS12
    Riccardo Tisci is still atop his unshakeable pedestal. Though I risk sounding like a Sarah Jessica Parker movie by saying so…I don’t know how he does it.

    Givenchy for Spring/Summer 2012 was incredible. As the show opened, Natalia Vodianova stepped out in a nude, sleveless, dropped-lapel jacket that demonstrated a merging of rigid tailoring and fluid movement that would encapsulate his entire collection.

    Throughout the presentation there was a waterworld theme hinted softly in the craftsmanship. With his unparalleled skills, Tisci managed to create 3-d wave effects through tiers of ruffles. Genius. The embellishment of the season was seen in icy silver-blue sequins placed on one of his wave-like lapelled jackets with matching pants. The theme wasn’t overplayed, yet it penetrated every seam. That is what made the collection. View Post

    John Galliano Court

  • “Fashion racist” John Galliano went to trial on Wednesday at the Paris magistrates court. He defended his behaviour by offering an explanation of drugs, alcohol and stress. Since he is only being asked for a ‘symbolic settlement‘ of 1 euro plus lawyer fees, the future looks bleak. The result of the trial is set to be announced in September.
  • Azzedine Alaia seems to be playing the “there’s no such thing as bad press” card. According to an outburst, Karl Lagerfeld “has never touched a pair of scissors in his life”, and “no-one will remember” Anna Wintour. Even with Wintour’s cold reputation, Azzedine claims that Vogue’s editor-in-chief “is the scared one” when they meet.
  • Alaia, round two! It has been revealed that he was asked to take over for John Galliano at Dior. The 71-year-old designer said that was flattered but declined. Azzedine Alaia is certainly an interesting choice for Dior – a possible deterrent for Riccardo Tisci rumours?
  • Lady Gaga Edge of Glory

  • Versace had a bloody good week. Lady Gaga chose the label as the only designer she wears in “Edge of Glory” (her latest music video), after which Donatella Versace announced she will be collaborating with H&M on a diffusion line! See video below.
  • Botox has competition. A new alternative to the wrinkle-freezing procedure, Dysport, appears to be outperforming the leader. A “split face” study was recently carried out in which doctors randomly injected Botox into one side of the face and Dysport into the other. After thirty days, two-thirds of participants were found to favour the results of Dysport.
  • Coco Rocha signed up to be the face of Canadian fashion brand Jacob for their Fall/Winter 2011 campaign. Why the significance? She is taking part in a new “no retouching policy“.
