Kate Moss arrived at the spring 2010 Miu Miu fashion show in Paris earlier this month looking gorgeous in a killer Miuccia Prada-designed leather long sleeve mini dress. Inspired by her supermodel style, we picked our favorite new season leather pieces including a roundup of accessories that complete the tough girl look—chain heels, cropped gloves, a tiny clutch and a wide belt.

>> Bee Shaffer Moves on From Theater to Media Assistant —Last thing we heard, Bee Shaffer was interested in doing a theater production and was planning on interning at the Manhattan Theatre Club starting in September. Seems she's still bent on avoiding fashion, but has switched gears by becoming assistant to College Humor co-founder Ricky Van Veen, who's getting ready to embark on a TV and web-programming company under the guidance of Barry Diller. Which means she hasn't totally escaped fashion, seeing as Diller is husband to Diane von Furstenberg . . . [Guest of a Guest, Gawker]

>> Yesterday afternoon, Alexander Wang — in black hoodie, white t-shirt, jeans, and dirtied-up white sneakers — spent two hours taking pictures and chatting with fans at his Spring 2010 Barneys trunk show in New York. Wang was Barneys' number one trunk show seller last season, according to his PR director Leslie Rubisch — the sales racked up during that period accounted for fifty percent of Barneys' total Alexander Wang delivery — sold, three months before it even hit the floor. Needless to say, he had some expectations to live up to this time around. Vogue got the scoop on which three Spring 2010 pieces were the best-sellers yesterday, and we chatted with Alex for further details:
What's your favorite piece from the Spring 2010 collection?
Hmm, that's difficult. [Rubisch leans in: "I'm curious to hear what you're going to say!"] I feel like every day I change my mind. But I always seem to come back to Freja [Beha Erichsen]'s look, she really knows how to bring an outfit to life, which is so important in a model for me.
