I spend a lot of time thinking about pants. Much more than any sane man should. What I’ve determined is that a perfect-fitting trouser is incredibly difficult to find, but not impossible. The anonymous, lab-coated designers of Maison Martin Margiela have figured it out. Lately, I’m really feeling a tapered, slightly longer fit with a slight crease down the leg. And always blue.

We’re used to seeing Kate Moss in front of the camera. Just in the past few weeks, the supe starred in the new Stella McCartney ad campaign and verified that her career is stronger than ever—this year was her most lucrative to date. (She’s reportedly worth $92 million.) Seeing her on the other side of the lens, however, isn’t something that happens quite so often. For British Vogue‘s September issue, Moss took her first stab at filmmaking with The Wolf in Her, a short film that captures Lara Stone frolicking in the woods for a Mario Sorrenti shoot. Shot on a Super 8 camera, the film has a fuzzy, ethereal quality to it, enriched by background music from her husband Jamie Hince’s band, The Kills. A few wolves also made it into the video, which makes us question the fear factor on set. We’d like to think Moss kept her cool, as always. Watch the film, here.
Although Kate Bush hasn’t performed live since 1979, her music has serenaded many a runway show in recent years. In honor of Bush making her return to the stage after a 35-year hiatus, Style.com’s Nicole Phelps delved into fashion’s obsession with the songstress’s enduring songs (like the ever-popular “Hounds of Love” and “Running Up That Hill”) in today’s feature story. Here, we’ve rounded up some of Bush’s best tracks and created a runway-worthy playlist for your listening pleasure.
