>> Every time he takes the runway for a bow, John Galliano dresses up; in the past, he's done swashbuckler, equestrian, a gumshoe, and an astronaut. There's a reason he does it, Galliano says — and it's not because he likes to dress up: "People always ask me about the clothes I wear on the runway. The attention should be on the collection — not my finale! I get so immersed in the world that I am creating that — like a method actor — I tune with the muse, the story and the collection so much so that I evolve into an homage to the world I have created."

>> Donatella Versace loves her some January Jones: Jones has worn Atelier Versace on a number of red carpets, the Spring 2011 Versace show was delayed by more than 45 minutes while waiting for Jones to arrive, and now she's appearing in the brand's Spring 2011 accessory ads, wearing solely Versace bags, shoes, sunglasses, or eyeglasses.
“I am always on the lookout for the next Versace blonde . . . and in January I feel I have found a perfect Versace woman for the 21st century,” said Versace. “She is chic and elegant but deeply sensual too.” Mario Testino shot the black and white images in London, with Jones's hair and makeup referencing her role in the '60s-era Mad Men.
