W Leads The Fashion Pack At The ASMEs, Carine And Karl Together Again, A Devilish Kind Of Angel, And More…


The American Society of Magazine Editors announced the nominees for its annual ASME awards today. Stefano Tonchi’s W leads the fashion-mag pack with three nominations, two for photography and one in the Fashion, Service, and Lifestyle “women’s interest” category. The New Yorker had the most nominations overall, with nine, followed by New York, The New York Times Magazine, and the Virginia Quarterly Review. [WWD]

Carine Roitfeld’s new gig? Styling the latest Chanel campaign. Karl Lagerfeld tapped the former Paris Vogue editrix to shoot the spots with house favorite Freja Beha Erichsen (in Chanel, left), and the results, he says, are “genius.” [WWD]

Engineer Ted Southern now spends his days making space gloves for NASA, but his previous job was a little sexier: working on the wings for Victoria’s Secret’s Angels. The big reveal? While Heidi is a true angel, Gisele was a little tougher to work with. “She’s always screaming, ‘What the f–k is this?’ ” Southern told the Post. [NY Post via Racked]

And, maybe it’s just our late-nineties adolescence talking, but a priceless bit of movie memorabilia hit the auction block over the weekend: the nude sketch of Kate Winslet, done by director James Cameron, that appeared in Titanic. Her heart (and the rest of her) really did go on. [Moviefone via Gawker]
