When we can’t get the seat we’d like to get at a fashion show, we chalk it up to having only been around for about a year. When Elle magazine creative director Joe Zee can’t get a seat he wants at a show, we get offended.
If there’s one thing fashion loves to do, it’s push the envelope. And while some of the stories included on this list made the cut due to a deliberately controversial editorial vision (ahem, Terry Richardson), many more made the list by sheer (and often embarrassingly obtuse) accident. But one thing is for sure, these are the stories that kept tongues wagging, traffic spiking, and many publicists very, very busy.
Last night Elle celebrated Tinseltown’s elite at their Women in Hollywood celebration. Vets like Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn mixed with the younger set, which included Mad Men‘s adorable Kiernan Shipka (who looked like she walked right off the set in her retro frock). The fashionable crowd included Sofia Coppola (classy in black and white), Rachel Zoe (fabulous in fur), Gwyneth Paltrow (punchy in tangerine) and many more.
When the State Department issued a terrorism alert for Americans traveling in Europe this weekend, did Anna Wintour panic? Did Glenda Bailey decide to lay low? Did Roberta Myers hire a security detail? No, no and no.
Only a few people at Elle will actually get offices when the magazine moves into the Time Inc. building on Oct. 4. Let the battle for the privilege to close a door officially begin! (Our money says Joe Zee doesn’t have anything on Robin Domeniconi.)
Far be it from us to say what did or didn’t happen during Elle magazine’s October cover shoot with Gabourey Sidibe. But to hear Elle’s editor Robbie Myers tell it, nothing bad happened and the media needs to leave the magazine alone.
Chanel celebrated the opening of its new SoHo store Thursday night, and with seven days left to go for NYFW, we can pretty definitively say that it was probably the party of the week. Between Blake Lively, Liv Tyler, Jessica Stam, and The Kaiser himself, there were more bold-faced names than we could tweet! (Though we most certainly tried.)
