Harpers Bazaar UK Karen Elson October
Harper’s Bazaar UK gets sucked into the Miu Miu groundhog day as revealed by their October cover. Not kidding. Karen Elson is in the dress. I can’t be the only journalist or stylist that has caught on. Is it now a dress to expand on press coverage because of it’s repetitive infamy?

Grace Coddington MemoirGrace Coddington, creative director of Vogue, is working on a memoir. Coddington and former Men’s Vogue editor in chief Jay Fielden have been confirmed as the pair to write the autobiography by Coddington herself. “We’re just starting, and I think it’s going to be a really fun project…I’m hoping it’s going to be very rich in fashion history. It’s more than just about me.”

The book will cover Coddington’s early life in Wales (woohoo – Welsh women!), her modeling days in Sixties London, the car accident that changed her career path and her ascendancy through fashion’s ranks as a stylist and editor at British Vogue and, later, its American counterpart. View Post

Angelina Jolie for StylistThe “Salt” star insisted to Stylist that little Shiloh Jolie-Pitt calls the shots when it comes to her tomboy attire, and that’s just fine with Mrs Angelina Jolie-Pitt.

“It’s not my choice,” she said of Shiloh’s wardrobe, which includes polo shirts, cargo pants, hoodies, and boys’ swim trunks. “I have a very strong-willed four-year-old girl who tells me what she wants to wear and I let her be who she is.” View Post

Rachel Zoe and Taylor JacobsonIn the first 10 minutes of last night’s new episode of the Rachel Zoe Project, our beloved stylist revealed that her ex-stylist – the very whiny Taylor Jacobson – was fired by Rachel’s husband Rodger due to “financial discrepancies” tied to the junior stylist’s book-keeping. Brad Goreski, her preppy and nice styling assisant (well, actually Styling Director as of last night’s promotion), also accused Taylor of stealing clothes from Zoe’s sample closet.

I knew all that bleach would mess up her neurosis.

Covers of the August Editions of W, Elle and British Vogue

UK Elle, UK Vogue and W seem to have a triplet thing going on for August.

It is quite a big deal for a designer to land a piece on the cover of any of these three mega-magazines, let alone all of them. The tangerine-coloured version of the Miu Miu dress is both worn by Eva Mendes (W) and Freja Beha Erichsen (Vogue). Lily Allen, however, wears a lilac lace version on the cover of Elle.

Someone at the PR offices of Miu Miu is getting a nice bonus this month.
