C’mon people, what’s going on? How come NY Fashion week was the whitest in years?

Hilarious cartoons about Anna Wintour.

We can never say it enough. We love Bill Cunningham. Take a look at the new documentary with a quote from Ms. Wintour.

Fascinating NY Times article on how the Hipstamatic app worked for this war photographer. Get ready for our upcoming Hipstamatic pics we took during NY fashion week.

Paulina Porizkova, one of our favorite models from the 80’s, writes for the Huffington Post on how modeling is a great job and shitty career. She tells it like it really is.

Once the guys head down the runway toward that bank of flashing cameras and flanked by hundreds of onlookers, all their personality and swagger, the confidence of being young, fit and exceptionally hot – poof. It’s gone.”   Did you miss this Washington Post article about male models? Certainly made us cackle.

    So unfortunate – The Dior was a very strong. I wish the matter would reconcile… ideally with Galliano back at the helm. But alas it’s unlikely…Superb show.

    Interesting to hear the selections given in the video but personally found the names to be too inner-circle for the most. I do like the idea of Peter Dundas.

    My top choice would be Graeme Black – look specifically at his FW09 collection. There could be stellar potential for Dior with Black.

    *This was a very strong Dior collection*.

    Regarding the NY runway – It was a rather suprising sight. The powers that be always find a way to turn back time. You would expect to see so much more diversity on the NY runway. But alas, Joan, Ajak, Melodie, Liu Wen Anais, Sessilee, Fei Fei & the like are making it much more difficult for robust ethnic representation to be denied.

    I’ve had enough of the battle cries of the negative people that cannot help but attest that “blacks do not make up that much of the luxury sales – therefor they should not be seen much, if at all”… Absurdity

    A model is a model is a model is a model. If the girl can do then let her do.

    OMG IM SO SAD AND IM ALMOST GONNA CRY… GALLIANO WAS THE KING AND HIS CREATIONS FOR DIOR WAS BEYOND AMAZING EVEN BETTER THAN CHANEL. IT WAS THE MOST AVANT GARD.. OMG GALLIANO WAS THE BEST. IM PART JEWISH AND IM STILL UNDERSTANDING AS HE WAS UNDER THE INFLUENCE. ALCOHOL DOES BAD THINGS TO PEOPLE AND GALLIANO WAS JUST A VICTIM.. I KNOW HE WAS JUST TRYING TO BE FUNNY AS HE USUALLY IS. MAN I CANNOT SEE DIOR WITHOUT GALLIANO. HE WAS THE REASON TO WHY THE LEARNED HOW TO UNDERSTAND FASHION AND COUTURE. THE MADE ME THE FASHION ADDICT THAT I AM NOW.

  5. Phi says:

    Am I the only one who think OLIVIER THEYSKENS is the perfect candidate to replace Galliano??!!

  6. Hollywood Sentinel says:

    Galliano is a victim of himself and he alone. If he is wise, he will make up the damage publicly, hire a top PR firm, and start his own line.

    Dior is great, and will remain so.

    hats off to Marquis for the great photo coverage

    and lastly, in the words of Jello from The Dead Kennedy’s, nazi punks- f#@k- off!

  7. Mark Fitzgerald says:

    Look at that backdrop. What a setting. It will be a shame to see the man who inspired so many part with a brand that appreciated his work.
    I’m less intrigued about his replacement as I am with where Galliano will end up next!

  8. Nigel S. says:

    Oh my heavens – Phi…. true that!

  9. Models and Style says:

    yep bad personaltiy cant effect a masters work – it was a nice collection !

  10. Marcus says:

    @Phi, N0, I totally agree with you about Olivier Theyskens being perfect for Dior.

  11. Vic (Worldwide Fashion Buyer) says:

    Hopefully, the press can stop asking the same annoying question at every show. If John does not return, my Candidature for Dior is Alber Elbaz (That’s if they can get him)

    Tisci, Pilati should continue there great job at there current post. Build the brand- It will be very confusing for client(s), when they move again……I don’t see them as Dior Couture makers…

    Elbaz will bring color/clean air to Dior….Front row at Elbaz’s Lanvin collection in Paris was a perfect – color, movement, simple yet elegant sophistication – These are what client want to buy….

    oh, and PLEASE no Tom Ford or Kane…

    Less is more
