We tried and failed to find some gifts for Kate Middleton and her royal spawn, but when you’re a designer it’s easier: You can just sketch them into existence.
Hallelujah! A major name has finally been confirmed to design for the soon-to-be-relaunched house of Schiaparelli — although, alas, only for a one-off collection.
Anna Wintour definitely broke the mold in 1988 when she put denim on the November cover of Vogue. Peter Lindbergh photographed Israeli stunner Michaela Bercu in a Christian Lacroix couture jacket and stonewashed jeans by Guess. It caused quite a stir at the time, and still remains an iconic piece of Vogue history. To celebrate the mag’s 120th anniversary and the all-important September issue, Wintour is spilling the real reason she put Mercu in denim.
Sarah Burton‘s name has been thrown around since the beginning of March, and everyone and their mother wanted Alexander McQueen‘s successor to design Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress. Though Burton denied the rumors, she remained the odds-on favorite until the very end. She blew her cover by checking into the Goring Hotel last night, and now she’s finally broken her royal wedding silence!
John Galliano‘s career at Dior hasn’t been over for 24 hours yet, but people are already speculating and making bets on who will replace him. A few names have floated to the top of the heap, but we won’t know for sure who it will be until someone has signed and dated what will undoubtedly be a very lucrative contract.

Case in point: they’ve been teaming up with designers to produce limited edition bottles the past couple of years. Issey Miyake is the latest to design his very own Evian bottle.
Well, isn’t this nice to see. Coco Rocha, who may be one of the industry’s most highly regarded and hard-working models, has spoken out against Terry “The Skeeze” Richardson. In an interview with Fashion magazine, Rocha revealed that though she’s shot with Richardson before, she has no plans on doing so again.
Being close friends with some of the art world’s greatests — Marc Quinn, Gary Hume, and Lucian Freud, to name a few — couldn’t keep the Kate Moss exhibit at Paris’ Les Arts Décoratifs alive. The exhibit, which was to be called “Kate Moss Myth” and feature photos of the model spanning the past two decades, has been cancelled due to a lack of sponsorship.
Jennifer Aniston has spent the last two weeks on a whirlwind press tour for her new movie, “The Bounty Hunter” starring Gerard Butler as her love interest. But as much as we love rom-coms, the real star of the red carpet has been Aniston’s sartorial choices. From New York to Berlin, Paris to Madrid, Aniston made some interesting (and controversial!) decisions
