After starring in ad campaigns for both Tom Ford and Gap, Julia Restoin Rotfield has reached a global audience yet again by starring in the Spring 09 Mango campaign alongside her brother, Vladimir. The Spring collection is modern, clean, understated and perfectly suited to these two stylish siblings. A first look at the campaign, below.

>> BLOWING THE COVER —Olivier Zahm's Purple Fashion never ceases to surprise and delight — no hints at the contents of the Spring 2009 issue yet, but Diane von Furstenberg is on the cover, rocking a leotard and wiggy Margiela coat. Diane's thoughts on the matter? “How embarassing at my age to be in fishnet stockings on the cover of a hip young magazine? I was seduced into a day with Terry Richardson, it was a lot of fun!” [Purple, Inside DVF]

>> Even icons aren't safe anymore. In late December, Village Voice laid off 30-year veteran and fashion writer Lynn Yaeger — she's since been picked up to blog for New York magazine during Fashion Week — and now, the Wall Street Journal has dismissed 23-year veteran Teri Agins as part of a decision to close its fashion and retail bureau.
The number of staffers has been reduced from nine to five — currently retained are columnist Christina Binkley and editor Lisa Bannon; the seven other employees — including Teri Agins, Rachel Dodes, and Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, who generally writes the newspaper's must-read Heard on the Runway blog — have all been let go effective at the end of March and asked to reapply for the three remaining positions in the bureau.
Will there be any literalists out there who show up to day three (they'd call it two) of New York Fashion Week decked out in pink like Elle Woods? Probably not...maybe at the tents...if it were London. We like to entertain the idea anyhow by picturing a sea of fashion editors and buyers dressed head-to-toe in pink. Our Valentine's Day shopping picks, above.
