>> By now, you've seen the Model.Live girls around at New York Fashion Week, but what are there final show counts? Madeline Kragh scored seven, including Shipley & Halmos and Chris Benz, Austria Alcantara also racked up seven, among them Marchesa and DKNY, and Cato van Ee, coming off a Prada exclusive last season, was optioned for nine shows, including Marc by Marc Jacobs and Jonathan Saunders. All in all, a successful outing — no one was a Karlie Kloss, who did 31 shows in her first season of New York Fashion Week, but let's let bygones be bygones. Up next, London — but will Cato even make it there?
>> Sophie Srej may be Hungarian, Anna Selezneva Russian, and Charlotte Hoyer Danish, but these three girls now have one thing in common — as of today, they are the Spring 2009 Calvin Klein show exclusives. Anna Selezneva is the only cover girl of the bunch, but now Sophie and Charlotte have joined her in becoming some of the most watched new faces going into Milan and Paris.
>> Miuccia Prada presented her newest animated short film, "Fallen Shadows," featuring the Fall 2008 Prada collection, a couple of nights ago in New York — and now you can watch it from the comfort of your own home. The sequence is not as creepy as the Spring 2008 oeuvre, "Trembled Blossoms," but there's definitely an otherwordly feel to it — and the Prada lace plays a starring role, of course.
