>> Anja Rubik scores Balmain; First Look at Lily Allen for Chanel—It appears that Anja Rubik is increasingly becoming an Emmanuelle Alt favorite — the Vogue Paris fashion director recently styled Anja for her first major Vogue cover, and now Anja is appearing in the new Balmain Fall 2009 ads, as spotted in the brand's Paris boutique (Alt is Balmain's stylist).
