The Office actress and writer Mindy Kaling is one of our favorite writers—and Twitterers. The fashion-world tweets she cooked up for Harper’s Bazaar are fictional, the mag cautions—but we’re willing to believe there’s a grain of truth buried in there somewhere. If not truth, at least wisdom. To wit: “At Betsey Johnson, in a tutu and fauxhawk. Have decided Helena Bonham Carter should play Betsey in The Betsey Johnson Story. #NYFW 4 hours ago.” Why didn’t we think of that? [Bazaar]
Cathy Horyn takes to the Times to discuss Mugler and the cult of Nicola Formichetti—and comes out with a fairly spirited defense of the collaboration. It’s worth a read this afternoon. [NYT]
Models—they grow up so fast! Just a minute ago, it feels like, Karlie Kloss was a 16-year-old newbie. She’s still all of about 18 years old, but she’s looking rather adult posing in the buff with pal Jourdan Dunn for i-D‘s Exhibitionist Issue. [Fashionologie]
And speaking of top models, they (and the rest of the rich and famous) have got a powerful new ally in British businessman and magnate Sir David Tang. He’s created a new Web site, ICorrect that allows high-profile members to publicly refute anything written about them (or purportedly written by them) in the press. Kate Moss paid the thousand-pound fee to clarify that she has no Twitter account, despite many claiming to be her; and Naomi Campbell wants you to know that she is not glad that Russia won the right to host the 2018 World Cup over England. (For what it’s worth: “”I have never ever expressed any opinion either way about whether FIFA made the right choice for where the 2018 World Cup should be held—I wouldn’t do that, not least because I don’t know enough about the technicalities or process.”) [Vogue U.K.]
On the runway, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren’s ultra-theatrical clothes take center stage, which makes it easy to overlook that the show usually has a strong cast of catwalkers. You’ve got Andrew Weir and Marques Nolan of ACW Worldwide to thank for that. The two were backstage before the V&R show, where Lindsey, Karlie, Abbey, Valerija, and the rest were getting ready. They sent back a few exclusive pics of the work in gorgeous progress.
It wasn’t a great night for traditional fashion books, but there were some stylish wins at the National Magazine Awards last night. New York took home four Ellies, The New Yorker and National Geographic three each, and GQ took home the award for General Excellence in the 500,000-to-1 million circulation category. [WWD]
The latest Louis Vuitton “Icons” campaign has leaked, starring footballers Zidane, Pelé, and Maradona enjoying some foosball in their downtime. Annie Leibovitz shot the campaign in Madrid. And, oh yeah, there are some pieces of LV luggage (Zidane’s monogrammed with his ZZ) lurking in the background. [Racked]
Speaking of models, Karlie Kloss and Anna Jagodzinska are the faces of Donna Karan for Fall 2010. Patrick Demarchelier shot them in New York for the label’s 25th anniversary campaign. [Fashionologie]
And another designer made it work. Seth Aaron Henderson was named the winner of the seventh season of Project Runway last night. [NYDN]
