12 Fashionable Predictions For 2012

Happy Hangovers! Since we’ve spent the last few weeks looking back, we thought we’d take a little time this fine morning to look forward. Herewith, twelve fashionable, if not entirely serious predictions we have for the year to come.


Karlie Kloss will announce she’s pregnant. If not Karlie, then Candice Swanepoel. If not Candice, then Erin Heatherton. If not Erin, then Behati Prinsloo, and so on, and so forth.

Anna Wintour will end the fashion week scheduling drama by putting her boot-clad foot down and demanding that the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, British Fashion Council and Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture all do the following: Get over themselves, act like adults, and sit down in the same room at the same time to figure this thing out instead of faxing condescending international communiques to each other.

Tavi Gevinson will continue to take over the world. Ideally this will involve forming a girl band with Elle Fanning on bass andHailee Steinfeld on drums.

Kate Middleton will actually get knocked up. She will clothe her daughter (yes, daughter) in Lanvin and Oscar de la Renta, until she convinces Sarah Burton to do a kids’ line for Alexander McQueen.

Kim Kardashian will get married again. (And divorced.) (And make millions of dollars in the process.)

Based on the strength of his ultra steezy outerwear collaboration with Canada Goose, Canadian goose Drake will finally realize his dream of designing sweaters for Missoni. He will more than likely be offered a deal with the Italian fashion house after “accidentally” running into Margherita Missoni at Pitti Uomo and doing an “impromptu” rendition of Fancy in her honor.

Karl Lagerfeld will finally join Twitter. The man already has tons of iPads and iPhones, not to mention bon mots for days. This is the next logical step.

Britney Spears will re-hire Monique Lhuillier (who designed her first wedding dress) to design the dress she wears when she marries Jason Trawick. We will more than likely be surprised when it turns out to be our favorite wedding dress of ever. The end.

Carine Roitfeld will launch a new magazine. She will tout it as a revolutionary combination of print and web. It will be neither, but it will be full of crazy, sexy, cool photo shoots. We will still love it.

Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Louboutin will resolve the red sole trademark infringement case in private arbitration. Which means we won’t know exactly how they’ll reach an agreement, but at some point during 2012, the two companies will finally work things out. We hope.

Beyonce will give birth! Oh, just kidding; that’s a cop out. But her little girl is going to be so fierce that Suri’s Burn Book won’t even know what to do with her.

Kanye West will indeed still try to make this fashion thing happen. God bless him.
