April Fools! A Roundup Of Yesterday’s Best Fashion Pranks
Did we fool you this morning with our
Kate Middleton/ Terry Richardson post? Sorry about that! As far as we know, no Harper’s Bazaar cover is in the works with these two, but hey, we can dare to dream, right?
We weren’t the only ones celebrating the spirit of the day, however. Plenty of fashionable people around the interwebs got in on the pranking action.
Here are some of our favorite fibs:
1.Refinery 29 Takes a Trip Back to the Eighties
Refinery 29 (sorry, we mean Refinery 89) seriously committed to their prank today, redesigning the whole site to celebrate the year 1989. Among the posts they published were an obituary for Diana Vreeland, a celebration of Anna Wintour’s first year at Vogue (will she last?!), and an introduction to “new face” Kate Moss.

Kate Middleton has been transformed overnight from a regular duchess (how boring) into a Harper's Bazaar cover girl and the new face of Alexander McQueen! Nice improvement, if we do say so ourselves.

Say it ain't so! Don't worry, she did. But not before a few gullible people mourned her retirement.
