Riccardo Tisci is crowning a new model of the moment—just when his last discovery, his longtime assistant, transgender model Lea T., is being celebrated more than ever. His next campaign will star albino model Stephen Thompson (left) alongside Mariacarla Boscono, Daphne Groeneveld, and Iris Strubegger. Albino skin tones are “very near my world,” Tisci isaid. [WWD]

Step right up, dedicated shoppers: Chloe Sevigny’s Resort ’11 collection for Opening Ceremony goes on pre-sale today. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like one of Sevigny’s Robert Mapplethorpe-print T-shirts. (But probably not for grandma’s stocking, as most of them are NSFW.) [Fashionologie]

In London, Mulberry’s on top. The resurgent brand tripled its profits in the last sixth months, was named Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, and is now opening a new Bond Street flagship that’s a giant 5,400 square feet. In other words: A whole lotta Alexas. [WWD]

And speaking of London fashion, Nicole Farhi’s named a new men’s designer: Massimo Nicosia, a veteran of Pringle of Scotland and Alessandro Dell’Acqua. [Vogue U.K.]

The Lagerfeld Pantheon, Stella Welcomes Reiley, Tom Ford’s Show Revealed, And More…


A few sneak peeks have been floating around the Web of late, but Karl Lagerfeld’s full Pirelli calendar was finally unveiled in Moscow last night. The calendar takes the theme of the Greek gods and goddesses, and stars Daria Werbowy (nude—again—as Artemis), KL favorite Baptiste Giabiconi as Apollo, Erin Wasson as Ajax (above right), Garrett Neff as Dionysus, Elisa Sednaoui as Flora, Iris Strubegger as Athena, and Julianne Moore as Hera (above left).

Cast Away


Fashion doesn’t exactly abide by regular schedules. So while the rest of the country was enjoying a luxurious long weekend, models were scampering around town proving that their runway struts (and figures) were sharp as ever. On a breezy, perfect sort of NYC Saturday, Andrew Weir of ACW Worldwide was casting for a bevy of fashion week shows, including Ruffian, Y-3, and Zac Posen’s Z Spoke at the Hudson Hotel (to the alternately pleased and gawkish stares of hotel guests). Marc Jacobs favorite Hannah Holman stopped by on the early side. “Everyone loves fashion week, but everybody hates all the work getting up to there, castings, fittings,” Holman divulged. “Fittings can be the worst. You sometimes are standing there for hours while they literally make the garments on you. That’s why we’re all skinny and depleted when it comes to Paris! And we’re eating pasta everyday!”

Weir was apt to agree. “I love seeing the girls when they’re in New York,” he said. “They’re coming off summer, so they’re always so fresh.” Healthy being model-dom’s mantra of the moment, Weir was particularly on the lookout for new girls with a glow about them. Stephanie Rad of Marilyn was making waves with her golden good looks, but there were plenty of fresh faces from Holland and Norway to launch a Dutch/Scandinavian invasion. That’s not to say many new girls make the first cut. “I might find one, maybe two gems,” Weir noted. Particularly if “old” hats like Diana Moldovan, Daiane Conterato, and Bruna Tenorio promptly proved they’re not going anywhere with one pro sashay down the test runway. But even Chanel haute couture closer Iris Strubegger (left) was better than to think she had any job security. “Well, you never know. The next new girl may come along and you’re no longer at the top anymore,” the Austrian beauty said. “So I try to stay just as excited and try my best for every show and casting as when I first started.” Continue Reading “Cast Away” »

Did We Just Find Out Marc Jacobs’ Valentine’s Day Plans?


We’re still waiting on details about Marc Jacobs’ after-party, but his other half, Lorenzo Martone, is getting behind events left and right this New York fashion week. His PR and talent agency, ARC New York, is throwing a bash to end the week on the 18th, but before then he’s hosting a Butt magazine Valentine’s Day dance party with cover boy Kele Okereke that he promises will be full of “hot men.” It’s hot chicks, or more specifically, one hot chick named Iris Strubegger, who will be the draw at the dinner he’s hosting on February 12 at the Box for Ruffian designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais. The catwalker stars alongside vintage Ruffian designs in a new short film, La Demimondaine, by director Sandro Suppnig, that will be screened post-repast.

Giles Deacon Thanks You (And Rihanna) For Sticking Around


We suspect that more than one guest in the editor-heavy crowd at last night’s ANDAM (National Association for the Development of Fashion Arts) Fashion Award presentation and 20th anniversary celebration was there for organization president and éminence grise of French fashion Pierre Bergé. “I know there are people here tonight from many places,” said Bergé. “But I am speaking in French because I communicate and think best in it. I will let fashion speak across boundaries.”

Of course, ANDAM doesn’t mind crossing borders. Last year’s winner of the €160,000 prize was Gareth Pugh, and this year it was fellow Brit Giles Deacon, who took the stage for brief thank-yous. Later, he addressed his show’s place on the schedule—one of the few on the final day of the week. “I know it’s the last day,” Deacon told us. “But I’m really grateful that many editors are sticking around this year. And of course, I’m looking forward to having Rihanna there.” (Another draw is the official debut of his jewelry line on the Spring runway.)

Deacon was surrounded by a lovely cheerleading squad: models Iris Strubegger, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Eniko Mihalik. The lattermost wore a short black skirt with spiky studs that turned out to be a fierce way to make room in a crowd. Strubegger donned a pair of Deacon’s lavender suede thigh-high boots that made her a cut above the rest. Surveying the crowd in the gilded room, the towering redhead had the best view in the house. “I love these boots. I can see everything from up here!” she said.
