Fresh From The Feed
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. Stella McCartney (pictured; last week: N/A)
Good news traveled fast. The entire blogosphere, more or less, joined together to congratulate Stella McCartney, who, it was revealed last week, is expecting her fourth child.
2. Julien Macdonald (last week: N/A)
Turns out bad news travels pretty quick, too. English designer (and Britain’s Next Top Model judge) Julien Macdonald found himself in hot water when he called plus-sized models “a joke.” Plus-size poster girl Crystal Renn even took to The Independent for an op-ed rebuttal.
3. Alexander McQueen (last week: 2)
Daphne Guinness made headlines (but what else is new?) for privately purchasing Isabella Blow’s entire fashion collection, which included 90 McQueen outfits. Meanwhile, the style set spent the last week awaiting the runway debut of McQueen’s successor, Sarah Burton, at the label’s Spring ’11 menswear show. (See the entire show here.)
4. Jil Sander (last week: N/A)
House creative director Raf Simons ramped up anticipation for his Spring ’11 Jil Sander collection showing at Pitti Uomo with a Q&A with Style.com; late in the week, he delivered a wild, fluorescent presentation. (See the entire show here.)
5. Marc Jacobs (last week: 1)
Even in an action-packed week, Marc Jacobs stays in the news. Resort collections for his namesake line and Marc by Marc Jacobs kept him top of mind.
