I, Karlie

-------

2009 was a pretty good year for 17-year-old stunner Karlie Kloss: She booked more Vogue editorials than anyone else, picked up a slew of breakout-of-the-year nods from bloggers and industry insiders, and flew down more runways than your average airline pilot. Can we expect the same in 2010? Early signs point to yes. The Web is abuzz with the Chicago-born model’s new print campaigns, in which she proves that she can do forties finesse (in Dior, left) as well as earthy flower child (in Hermès, right). Is there anything this girl can’t do well? Well…maybe just one thing.

Lindsay’s Used Clothes, Lacroix in Uniform, and More…

-------

Since Lindsay Lohan‘s designs for Ungaro won’t be in stores for months, the actress is appeasing fans with an online sale of clothes straight from her own closet. Well, that’s a lifesaver. [Page Six]

Despite being reduced to a licensing operation earlier this month, Christian Lacroix and his designs are on track—er, tracks. The couturier is creating 20,000 uniforms for French railway workers, which will debut next month. [WWD]

Corset sales are up nearly 70 percent in the U.K., thanks in part to underwear-wearers like Lady Gaga and Rihanna; Selfridges recently sold out of a luxe Bordelle model in 24 hours. At $1,470 a pop, we hope that one came with a record deal. [WWD]


Uniqlo’s +J Spring 2010 collection will hit U.K. stores on January 7. Which means, London girls, you should have gotten in line last week. [Vogue U.K.]

Year in review: Karlie Kloss and Patrick Demarchelier snagged the most Vogue editorials this year, and that’s counting Nippon, Paris, Russia, and Australia. [Live Journal]

Karlie Kloss, Table Tennis Ace

-------

In case you missed the link on Style.com’s homepage (which wouldn’t be easy), we’re here to urge you to check out our latest Model Challenge video. In it, runway superstar Karlie Kloss schools Ping-Pong pro the Notorious Wally Green in a table tennis showdown. Producer Julie Anne Quay reports that it was as big a kick to make as it is to watch. “Karlie was having so much fun,” she explained, “that I tried to play with my iPhone. It’s definitely not recommended for those who value their screen.” Quay also tells us her game is average, but adds, “I hear Grace Coddington is a fantastic player. How about a match?” We’d love to see that, but consider this a casting call for a Model Challenge with better odds of getting filmed: Next up for Quay is Guitar Hero.

Wang’s Win, Daphne’s Shoes, and More…

-------

Alexander Wang can’t stop winning. The 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner
scooped up this year’s Swiss Textiles Award, beating out five other
finalists including Thakoon and Ohne Titel. We guess sexy American sportswear translates everywhere.

Daphne Guinness gets the shoes. The pint-size muse showed up in Alexander McQueen‘s fang feet at last night’s party for François Nars, and, of course, totally pulled it off. [British Vogue]

International modeling phenom Karlie Kloss made her mom cupcakes for her birthday. And she’s founding a charity to help underprivileged youth. And she’s 17. [WWD]

Lynn Hirschberg deconstructs Megan Fox. Is her sexed-up image all an act? Unclear, but the actress does use those chicken-cutlet boob enhancements. That’s kind of a relief, right? [NYT]

Costco’s made it to Manhattan. The mammoth food-clothing-electronics-and-everything-else emporium opened its doors today on 116th Street. Go there for a wall of Uggs ($124.99), Chanel
handbags ($1,999.99), and Louis Vuitton duffels ($589.99). No one has to
know where it came from. [NY Post]

Comme Together, Beyoncé Stays Local, And More…

-------

The highly anticipated William Rast retail rollout has begun, and it’s “aggressive.” Sounds like Justin‘s bringing sexy back again. [WWD]

Finally, an uplifting recession scorecard report: Shoe sales are way up. We swear we had no idea. [NYT]

The first Comme des Garçons/Beatles collection image is out. We were hoping for less apple and more strawberry field. [WWD]

It looks like we may get to keep Beyoncé all to ourselves. Her Malaysian concert was a no-go, and now Egypt has declared her tour an “insolent sex party.” Sounds horrible, right? [USA Today]

Donatella confirms rumors that Georgia May Jagger (our latest Beauty Icon) is the face of the new Versace campaign. This, plus Daisy Lowe’s new Louis Vuitton booking, means we are officially in hot British rocker progeny overdrive. [WWD]

Karlie Kloss totally knows how to change your oil. Explore the inner workings of models’ minds on www.modelsaresmart.tumblr.com. [HuffPo]

Escada: Saved! The label has finally been acquired. [WWD]
