>> Ryan McGinley Scores Fall 2009 Missoni Campaign —Ryan McGinley is becoming a master at toeing the high-low fashion line: His Wrangler campaign won a Lion D'Or at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival last month; he photographed Levi's new campaign to grab the attention of youth; Stella McCartney re-hired him to do her Bambi-laden Fall 2009 campaign; and now he's replaced Steven Meisel for Missoni Fall 2009. Together with stylist Vanessa Reid, he captured Hanne-Gaby Odiele riding on the back of a truck at Floyd Bennett Airfield in Brooklyn in this first image. [Supreme Being]

>> The sudden surge of pregnant models keeps growing: 18-year-old Jourdan Dunn confirmed to Vogue UK that she is five and a half months pregnant by her boyfriend of several years and due in December. "I'm really looking forward to the future and having my baby. I'm lucky — I'm feeling really well. I'm healthy and happy!"
Sessilee Lopez commented on The Fashion Spot, implying that Jourdan, like Karolina Kurkova, is expecting a boy: "Everyone is so excited and can't wait to welcome him into the world!!!!"
Jourdan walked the Strenesse Blue runway during Berlin Fashion Week a couple of weeks ago (left), but it seems unlikely that she would walk during the upcoming Spring 2010 season this Fall; It's rumored that she's taken the next seven months off, but her agency told Vogue UK Jourdan plans to continue working between New York and London after the birth.
>> Despite No Runway Show, Aquascutum Will Still Have London Fashion Week Presence —Aquascutum pulled out of London Fashion Week earlier this month due to turmoil among its management and its pending sale, but the brand won't be entirely void of presence when all the international buyers and editors are in town. The Spring 2010 collection will be presented during LFW at the Aquascutum flagship in London. "We will be using this opportunity to be able to show the collections in an innovative and more interactive format,” said Aquascutum head of womenswear Michael Herz. [WWD]
Moccasins are plentiful this season with styles ranging from high heeled to studded and flat. A great weekend shoe, moccasins pair well with classic blue jeans and a bohemian-style blouse. The good news is, there are options at every price point. From Topshop's simple stitched moccasin to Sigerson Morrison's cut-out style--there's something for everyone.
Alexander Wang's first foray into menswear has been revealed--his T By Alexander Wang line now boasts menswear. WWD reminds us that Wang's original concept was to design unisex clothing which means that the line was a long time coming. The first T By Alexander Wang men's collection keeps with Wang's signature glamour-athletic look. We're pretty sure those leather shorts will sell out in a heartbeat--at least in New York.
