>> Last week, British singer Adele announced she was getting the Vogue treatment for the Grammys — she was scheduled to shoot a spread for the magazine with Annie Leibovitz, and Anna Wintour wanted to meet her during her final fitting last Monday. "It was just like The Devil Wears Prada," Adele said. "It was amazing. I was really frightened and I went in and she was so nice. She was like, 'What labels do you like?' I was trying to make up these designers that I was quite sure I had read in Vogue or something before." Anna ended up offering to style her for the awards show, and Adele got "a really nice dress" out of the bargain.
Adele walked the red carpet last night in a Barbara Tfank flared black dress — which Vogue had custom-made for the occasion — and a green jacket that looked like something Wintour might wear herself, a tuxedoed Hamish Bowles on her arm. Another Vogue celebrity styling debacle has been avoided, and we might even get a chronicle of the experience in Vogue — my best guess for Hamish's appearance on the red carpet.

We're just days away from the start of New York Fashion Week and there's nothing much else on our minds (save for Philo) than that. Above, two sketches from the Twinkle By Wenlan Fall 2009 collection which is said to be a "1950's-flaired" and which "sings of joie de vivre for the modern day Audrey Hepburn".
Recession or no, it's pretty obvious that those nipped-in waists from Marc Jacobs' Spring 2009 collection will influence the waistline of a fall collection or two. What better way is there, after all, to tidy a mixture of patterns or layers of separates? So far, we've seen eye-catching examples at the Stockholm and Copenhagen shows. Our favorites, above.
