Bits & Bytes: The Next Gen

Only in fashion can a boy in Ksubi shorts hang out with a girl dressed in a Burberry coat. Love this story by Thomas Cooksey for Contributing Editor, styled by Kim Howells for Contributing Editor. With the amazing Harry Goodwins and Stephanie Rad.

Who doesn’t love Azzedine Alaïa? Well, we know one editrix who doesn’t but everyone else certainly does. Read his interview with Style.com’s Dirk Standen.

Artist Jirka Väätäinen recreates Disney princesses. Who thinks Sleeping Beauty looks like Lara Stone meets Emily Baker?

One of our favorite runway coaches, Mac Folkes creates this really cool magazine that shows us why print is still so very viable.

Watch former Prada campaign face, Rasa Zukauskaite tongue twisting in her native Lithuanian.

Obsessed with Florence Welch and her work with Chanel. Watch the backstage video of the S/S 12 show with Florence’s amazing voice.

In the 80’s and 90’s Carré Otis was one of the original supermodels. Her new book, Beauty Disrupted,  details her battles with anorexia, drug addiction, violence, suicide, domestic violence and rape by the owner of her agency, Gerald Marie. I hope that other models will not have to face the same sad and tragic events Carré dealt with.

    Isnt Gerald Marie still at elite? Carré started modelling in the eighties, no? That is almost thirty years a known rapist has had access to underage girls. And the scary part is, there are probably dozens more like him in the industry preying on these kids AND get rich off their sweat. It makes me want to crawl inside a hole and cry.

    ^ Lulu, to our knowledge Gerald Marie no longer works at Elite. His actions were completely reprehensible.
