>> The more Miu Miu ads that pop up, the more l'm convinced there was some mixup with a Louis Vuitton campaign. The clothes and bags may all be Miu Miu, but between the requisite celebrity -- Lindsay Lohan, the vivid colors, and the photographers -- Mert & Marcus, all point towards Louis Vuitton. I don't like these second two shots as much as the first, but I'm still very fixated on that fantastic vivid red hair.

>> I know the expressionless expression is pretty trademark for fashion, but it really seems to be it for spring, between Natalia Vodianova's new ads for Calvin Klein and Lindsay Lohan's Miu Miu shot. I like the new direction Francisco Costa has taken with these ads, especially since he continues to use Natalia. The ethereal feel really highlights the sheerness of the garment -- I love when sheer garments are shot like this. Beautiful. And Natalia plays the mannequin -- well -- quite literally.
>> It came out of left field, this news, but I'm still glad it's here: Christopher Kane, the much-hyped Donatella Versace protege cum Herve Leger disciple, is doing a capsule collection for Topshop. That means come February 9, there will be pleated chiffon dresses with neon zippers aplenty -- in tea, blush, and grey shades, priced around £110. Woe is my clothing budget, between this and the Proenza Schouler bustiers coming to town February 4.
