While perusing Net-a-Porter this morning (work-related of course) we noticed a funny thing in the new arrivals section. Three very expensive, very pale frocks sold out before they even made it through the work week. Of all the different types of frocks out there, why these? Light as air, ornate to the point of distraction, more expensive than a half dozen Louboutins. All we can say is that news like this is as valuable as any fashion show review or trend report in town.
The larger-than-life runway show might be stale but that's not stopping scalpers from selling 250 dollar "tickets" to the shows.
The Vogue cover featuring Michelle Obama was leaked, just before Style.com released full-size images and a good portion of the interview.
Carine Roitfeld is rumored to be recruiting younger staffers to startup a biannual Teen Vogue.
Halston is foregoing a runway show in favor of a big-budget video which will be sent out to select editors and buyers during Fashion Week.
