Glee Sarah Jessica Parker
If, like myself, you have watched every episode of Sex and The City and Glee, I advise you to hold onto your office chair: the two are (sort of) becoming one!

This week, the brains behind Glee – Ryan Murphy – announced that Sarah Jessica Parker will guest star in a few episodes of the musical wunderkind next season. Not only that, but she will be playing a “sort of frazzled, eccentric and hilarious” Vogue.com editor!

It screams for the re-introduction of Carrie Bradshaw. SATC fans will remember when Carrie strutted into the Vogue offices – where she was getting paid 50 cents a word (yes, I’m obsessed) – in an asymmettical pinstripe suit from Vivienne Westwood to meet a Vogue Editor/Wintour clone played by Candice Bergen. It is barely a storyline stretch!

Speaking of Anna Wintour, the ice queen herself has been employed to style the wardrobe of Sarah Jessica Parker’s fictional Glee character. I can only expect this is an incredible favour to Anna’s daughter, Bee Shaffer, who works for the company that produces the show. It couldn’t get any more fash-fabulous.

The most excited of my creative juices are flowing. You’re welcome to any of the plot ideas below, Glee writers. You’re ever so welcome.

1. Rachel is sent to the Vogue offices for a make-over.
Say goodbye to your knee-highs and pre-school silhouettes, Miss Berry. You’re now in New York City. Ditch the loafers for Louboutins at the hand of a tutu-wearing fashionista.

2. Santana starts a fashion blog.
To stay in touch with her lady love, Santana starts a blog that is catapulted to international fame. Vogue tries to poach her for their online site. Many musical numbers about life’s crazy twists and turns ensue.

3. Rachel falls in love with Aidan.
Without annoyingly righteous boyfriend Finn by her side, Rachel looks for a similarly small-town homeboy to lust over. The pair bond over a mahogany harp.

4. Mercedes starts a plus-sized riot.
Enraged by the body standards in her September issue, Mercedes flees to New York with the Vogue offices as her target. Who else, in particular, but the pint-sized dot-com Editor? Carrie shall wax lyrical about sample sizes and everyone shall sing songs about being beautiful.

5. Kurt Hummel is Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant.
He falls in friendship lust with her and Stanford, therefore introduces millions of conservative American homes to the fabulous lives of metropolitan homosexuals.

Anna Wintour WSJ
…because there’s no other Wintour worth blogging about, is there? In an ‘it took you THIS LONG?’ moment, I present to you the cover of our beloved/feared Anna Wintour for the April issue of WSJ. There is a massive profile of the Vogue editor-in-chief inside, in compliment to this iconic shot via the lens of Mario Testino. The hair, baby.

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.

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
