Bits and Bytes: From rooftop to runway

June 24th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

Seems like a mere 15 minutes ago, Jean Carlos was shooting his first tests in New York on a rooftop. This week, the Brazilian so popular with the fashion bloggers walked some of the big runways in Milan, including DSquared2, CP Company, Etro and Giorgio Armani.


If you adore Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Marisa Miller, Adriana Lima, Selita Ebanks, Miranda Kerr, Behati Prinsloo and Doutzen Kroes, then go to Victoria’s Secret’s Facebook page.

Surprise! Jamie Dornan, in 3 of the season’s Calvin Klein campaigns, says he’s never done a runway show.

The Milan men’s shows had some breathing room, thanks to the recession.

Frockwriter talks about the “Hedi Sliminization” of fashion and here’s the Guy Trebay NY Times article on AJ Abualrub dropping 30 pounds for the shows. Much has been made of him saying he eats twice a day; not that we are condoning that but all we can say is when we were in our teens, we had totally bad habits like eating twice a day too.

Watch Jil Sander, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli all here and Burberry, Zegna and Dolce & Gabbana here.

Helmut Newton‘s Sumo re-released!

For his S/S 10 show, Alexander McQueen does a film instead with David Sims.

Here’s another hilarious look by Jezebel at male models in vintage catalogs. All we can say is the male model and what they wear sure has changed!

Sans Artifice likes the Jil Sander collection and we do too!

The family at MDC want to express their deepest sympathies to Natasha Richardson’s family for their loss of an incredible woman: daughter/mother/wife, actor, activist. In this day and age, she was an example of how to live her “celebrity” life with class and style.
