Fresh From The Feed-------
Style.com’s Fashion Feed brings you the best of the news around the Web and on Twitter, and ranks the most-discussed designers, labels, models, and celebrities. In our weekly series, we call out the top five designers of the previous week (with our handy gloss on the hows and whys).
1. Alexander McQueen (pictured; last week: N/A)
The appointment of McQueen’s right-hand woman Sarah Burton as creative director of his namesake company last week sent the late designer shooting up the ranks.
2. Marc Jacobs (last week: 1)
The Louis Vuitton New Bond Street store opening, plus Marc’s revelations to The Telegraph of his hair transplant, set the wires buzzing last week. But then, how is that any different from any other week?
3. Victoria Beckham (last week: N/A)
Mrs. Beckham’s support of the new LG phone keeps her on the list this week. But maybe the fast-approaching World Cup is giving the queen of the WAGs a boost, too?
4. Giles Deacon (last week: N/A)
Deacon’s appointment at Emanuel Ungaro was announced last week. What we’re looking forward to: Deacon’s take on the classic Ungaro look—“tarty, with intelligence.”
5. Karl Lagerfeld (last week: 3)
Washing machines? A mail-order catalog?! Somehow Herr Lagerfeld managed to make it chic.
