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. Marc Jacobs (pictured; last week: 1)
Marc Jacobs kept the top slot for the second week in a row, thanks to some tantalizing news (the word—relayed via Twitter, natch—that the company is working on producing plus sizes) and a sensationalizing editorial (Jacobs “killing” Rachel Zoe—a nod to her “I die” catchphrase—in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar).
2. Victoria Beckham (last week: 3)
The Lady Beckham rose in the ranks this week when word broke that she’s adding bags to her line, with a little help from English accessories guru Katie Hillier, who’s worked with Luella Bartley, Henry Holland, and Mr. #1 himself, Marc Jacobs. As for the paps, they gleefully noted every detail of her flight’s preemptive emergency landing, which kept VB in London an extra 24 hours.
3. Vera Wang (last week: 2)
Clinton wedding mania kept Wang going strong, though she’s dropped a spot from her high last week of #2.
4. Alexander Wang (last week: 5)
The latest guerrilla postering campaign for T by Alexander Wang hits the streets this week. Once it does, we predict campaign star Zoë Kravitz’s star will rise alongside Wang’s.
5. Tom Ford (last week: N/A)
And Tom Ford makes returns to the list with the persistent internet buzz that perennially attends the designer/filmmaker/provocateur. Fragrance junkies are lapping up his latest, Tom Ford Extreme.
