10 Important Things We Learned Last Week: September 25-October 1

1. Kanye West‘s fashion show was highly anticipated. He even went fabric shopping himself, and sent out fancy invites to fancy people. And then he really disappointed everybody.

2. Ryan Gosling spat in fashion’s face.

3. JC Penny aired a sexist ad featuring a teenage Phoebe Cates, while Gisele starred in a similarly objectifying ad in Brazil.

4. Lady Gaga attended an Obama fundraiser, and filed a trademark lawsuit.

5. Anna Wintour hates Silvio Berlusconi (so does Donatella’s Versace‘s brother), but has befriended Nicki Minaj. Meanwhile, Carine Roitfeld is mounting a return to the magazine world. Also, they both had to stand at Balenciaga.

6. The Duchess made quite a comeback! Kate might cover Vogue, even though the Palace says it isn’t going to happen. More importantly, Kate went shopping at Topshop! She also wore a red lacy frock to a friend’s wedding and a cream dress on a hospital tour.

7. Fashimals! Fashimals! Fashimals!

8. People did stupid things on the internet! Scott Schuman slammed Tavi Gevinson, the Twitterverse freaked out over a false YSL rumor, a Canadian MP’s picture was Photoshopped on account of cleavage, and a retail store sent the rudest email ever. In related news, is the fashion blogger agent bubble about to burst?

9. The Occupy Wall Street people are making some bad sartorial choices. They should really look back in history for inspiration.

10. European Fashion Weeks have had some missteps. Tom Ford‘s collection was unceremoniously ragged on, as was Nicola Formichetti‘s for Mugler, and Lindsey Wixson took a tumble in Milan.
