Last night saw (the filming of) the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show–not to mention, the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show pink carpet. Yes, dozens upon dozens of the world’s top models gathered to vogue before the show–from your warhorse Angels … More

So, here’s a weird one: we were so distracted by the spectacular runway set and the exceptionally lovely clothes that we didn’t notice a bizarre little detail at Chanel… Subtly affixed to the otherwise pristine faces on the runway were little pearls, below lips and on noses, along the ears and at the eyebrow. Like piercings. Or moles…? More
This week, Belarussian blonde Tanya Dziahileva moved agencies to Marilyn in Paris and her new show card reads “Dyagileva.” Not such a change (and still as difficult for us native English speakers to say) but it got us thinking: so many models come from far-off places where surnames have many consonants… while other models just had plain Jane names that needed some punching up. Here’s a list of ladies who changed their names. More
According to The Telegraph, Miu Miu’s Spring 2011 Mert & Marcus-shot campaign featuring Kasia Struss (and Querelle Jansen and Sasha Pivovarova) was cause for complaint among some consumers who felt the Polish top model looked too thin: More
Miu Miu really drew this one out, but finally the complete set of images of the 2011 Mert and Marcus-lensed campaign are here. More
I’m a fan of Chanel. But with respect to Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel couture collection which showed today, I am not a fan.

It’s quite possible I just missed the point Mr. Lagerfeld was trying to make, but it’s also quite possible he tried to make way too many and lost his focus. More
High-profile Spring 2011 campaigns have been flooding the internet lately. It seems like every one of them has a buzzworthy backstory–the first campaign for Alexander McQueen since Sarah Burton took the reigns, Crystal Renn snags another high fashion brand, Leighton Meester grins for Missoni while we await the release of Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively’s Chanel ads. Oh, and Freja Beha is still everywhere. Let’s have a look at what’s coming down the campaign chute right now. More
Sasha Pivovarova was practically synonymous with Prada. Every season for three years, she headlined the campaigns, with her delicate, alien features and impossible litheness. Now she has returned, in a manner of speaking: she’s a Spring 2011 face of Miu Miu. Along with Kasia Struss (who we mentioned) and Querelle Jansen. Jansen is also an interesting choice: back in Spring 2004 she was a face of Prada and Miu Miu. See her after the jump! More
