>> I am so happy right now. It looks like Marc Jacobs will NOT be using Lindsay Lohan for the fall Louis Vuitton ads after all. WWD says that talks between the two have "hit a snag and a replacement is still undecided." Hallelujah! Finally, things are going my way.
For his other two labels, Marc will be using Jennifer Jason Leigh shot by Juergen Teller (surprise!) for his Marc Jacobs ads, and Malgosia Bela for his Marc by Marc line -- she will be modeling both the men's and women's clothing, so that will be interesting to see.
>> Speaking of Balenciaga, I think it's always fun to see how much the clothing goes for. From this outfit on the left, for example, the jacket goes for $2,995, the top for $2,675, and the skirt $1,285. And you wonder why you never see outfits like these walking down the street... If had that outfit, it would be hanging in a glass case -- but what's the fun in that? More price points here, thanks to Jing.
>> We all know that I adore what Nic Ghesquiere has been doing lately, but this strikes me as a bit odd. Balenciaga is requesting of fashion editors that all designs from the Fall 2006 collection "be shot as complete looks to portray what was represented on the runway," WWD reports.
Not only that, but the fashion house is also asking that no accessories be shot without a total look -- unless it is a still life or a close-up shot. Where's your respect for creative license, Nic? I was looking forward to some great editorials with that beautiful clothing, but now I feel like they're all going to look the same!
>> We have been lucky to get a plethora of good covers this month. Forget May flowers, it looks as though April showers bring... pretty covers. I like the lighting and the colors used in this cover for Vogue Korea April 2006 shot by Joon Seok Oh. The whole aesthetic just makes Hye Park look really elegant.
