>> We all knew this was coming from the twins who like to capitalize on everything they possibly can. Ashley Olsen, who has now well established herself as fashion it-girl extraordinaire, will be rolling out a clothing line called The Row, reports FWD. Any other such details are kept well under wraps, but those who attended the Balenciaga fete on Friday night got a preview glimpse of one piece -- Miss Ashley wore a forest-green and navy plaid jacket from the line.

>> But they do have a knack for entertaining (and perhaps slightly harsh?) comments:
Last time I checked, Vogue was full of pictures and advertisements. If you want people in the picture business, why not have them talk about . . . how to dress to hide one's pot belly or eating disorder. I cannot imagine listening to them regurgitate their high-school reading.
>> Hopefully a cozy one at that. Roland Mouret has finally revealed what he's been up to with Simon Fuller of American Idol fame -- together they have formed a new London-based company to be known as 19 RM. A 50-50 joint venture, the company "will create clothing designs and embark on a wide variety of fashion-related projects," according to WWD. The first of hopefully many projects will be announced over the next few weeks. Until then, Mouret leaves us with a promising message: “The world is our oyster. We have no limits, and we’ll be looking at fashion from a new angle.” As Prince George from Blackadder the Third would say, "Hurrah!"
>> Are the sixties "coming back" again for the spring? I thought they were beaten to death by the end of last spring... the Sienna travesty, anyone? But then again, minidresses and babydolls do still seem to be going strong...
>> Make sure you acknowledge him warmly, don't leave his side, and when you do depart, kiss him goodbye (mistakes made by the Olsens, Lohan, and Aguilera, respectively). In other words, the Kaiser likes for once to be treated like a fairly normal person.
>> With top models like Lily Cole and Iselin Steiro quitting modeling for school, there's always new spots to be taken (especially since no one really seems to have staying power these days, ignoring Kate Moss). The latest pick seems to be one Darla Baker, complete with the greenest of green eyes and long dark hair. Shall we see her at the upcoming fashion weeks? I think so.
>> Surprise, surprise... the new fall issue of POP has an amazing editorial in it: "Hell's Angels" by Mert and Marcus. The models are everyone from Kate Moss to Tanya D. to Lily Allen and Peaches Geldof. The styling and makeup is sublime, but what else should we expect from the supremely talented Katie Grand?
This picture, definitely bland colorwise compared to some of the other editorial photos, has to be my favorite. Partially because I'm having a Marie-Antoinette moment (which has pretty much spanned my entire lifetime) and partially because of the contrast between the ridiculously opulent wig and the stark nudity of the rest of Francesca Versace. All this picture makes me think is... maybe it's about time Versace made use of its newly graduated blood... and I'm so glad POP is now coming out three times a year.
>> I apologize to all of you who were highly annoyed by the ad covering half of the blog -- I have taken the ad down for now until the coding errors get worked out. Thank you so much for your patience!
