More Karlie for Vogue… looking a bit like this, no? Which is really one of my favorite editorials of all time btw.

Ahhhh that trapeze coat and those Givenchy clydesdale (that’s my reference, not theirs) boots.

Need a little Fassbender in your afternoon?

Rooney Mara in Marchesa, Vogue November 2011.

Over the weekend I actually sat down and read my entire issue of Vogue, which is something I haven’t done in ages and ages. The article on Mara and accompanying photography was pretty good. I wish more of the other content had been as compelling.

…and from that same story in Flair November 2011, the Ralph Lauren dress that Rooney Mara wears on the cover of Vogue November 2011. Which do you prefer?

Show Calendar Battle Goes On


A threatened shake-up of the fashion show calendar is raising tensions on both sides of the Atlantic. It’s a potential clash that, if not resolved, could wreak havoc on the already lengthy, jam-packed runway season.

As reported, Italian designers are displeased with the plan of New York officials to start that city’s fashion week on Sept. 13 next year in order to avoid conflict with the Labor Day holiday in the U.S. The shift would put the shows essentially a week later than in recent years. The Italians contend the move is being forced on them by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and if Milan moves its dates later as a result, Italian designers won’t have enough time to satisfy production needs.

By the way, I still remember when New York was AFTER Milano by a lot. Then the Americans pushed in to be first and well….
