Hey, any chance to post pictures of modeling legend, Kristen McNemany, I will take it. This photo is the exact reason why Calvin Klein will always be relevant. The embrace of the legendary (Kristen) with a modern day beauty (Doutzen) shows how the brand will always keep you guessing.

Coco Rocha, we adore you! Here she talks, uncensored about the NY Times/Daily News “stories” on her being considered “fat”.

Speaking of Coco, Hilary Rhoda interviews Coco, on Fashion Week Daily.

Ponyryder had 3 stellar interviews with the wonderful Amanda Norgaard, Love magazine cover star Jeneil Williams and Prada opener and closer, Samantha Gradoville.

Arlenis Sosa for Latina Magazine at a party sponsored by Lancome (see pic below). Kind of a big deal as past covergirls have been Jennifer Lopez and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayer. Arlenis talks about how black models need to stick together.

Male models should tremble. Zoolander 2 is in the works.

Another evil and unkind moment in the fashion industry. Frockwriter dissects the mess about Gemma Ward.


How do you get started in fashion photography? Tips from the experts are right here.

For female photographers only, here is eye opening advice from A Photo Editor.

Fashionista talks to a Getty photographer. shows that Trovata designer John Whitledge, takes a pretty mean picture as well… See his Fashion Week diary with Erin Wasson and Kirsten Dunst.

Fashion and miscellaneous:

LVMH-owned E Luxury is gone, only to be replaced by the Nowness. With that kind of backing, that website should be quite interesting.

One of our favorite casting directors, Daniel Peddle, was featured on the NY Times’ the Moment during Fashion Week (if you missed it!)

Also: if you missed from fashion week…. Incredible insights on from Cathy Horyn and Robert Duffy from Marc Jacobs on the state of the fashion industry.‘s interview with Hedi Slimane. Does he go back to designing? Find out….

Vogue Italia, Vogue Black and Vogue Curvy. Yes, we wish they were one, but hey, at least the dialogue is starting. (The Cut via Jezebel).

Speaking of Vogue, Jezebel talks about how those cover lines are made up (edited out from the September issue). It’s pretty darn funny.

Fashion Week Daily has a deleted scene from the September Issue where Karl Lagerfeld separates us from them (my words not his). Another hilarous moment from Karl.

Noir City

August 10th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Greg Lotus transports us back to the glamour of the 1940s for Vogue Italia. The talented lensman shoots Tanya Dziahileva, Christina Carey and newcomer Janete Friedrich for a series of images that look like stills from a neo-Noir film. Each girl plays her part perfectly and the dramatic lighting, combined with the overarching sense of mystery makes for an especially intriguing tale.

Though Natalia Vodianova is a fantastic cover model for this month’s British Vogue, let us not forget the divine Lara Stone who has a lush spread inside the mag by Alasdair McLellan wearing the season’s most coveted swimsuits. 


If you have $25,000 to spare, buy the Elton John Aids Foundation Portfolio.. You’ll get work by Juergen Teller, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst to name just a few of the star artists.

Tatiana did not like the Met’s Model as Muse. Here’s her critique.

Lara Stone is “inside the Chanel fitting room” with Baptiste Giabiconi. Video produced by Mr Lagerfeld! Pics on WWD here.

Fashionista chats with J Crew’s Creative Director, Jenna Lyons who adores Behati Prinsloo!

Though Kate Moss is on the cover of Tar, Sans Artifice asserts, it’s NOT a fashion magazine. There are however, wonderfully disturbing images of Kate and Natasa Vojnovic, here.
