Angels Among Us

-------

“To walk the Victoria’s Secret show is obviously every American girl’s dream. I feel pretty lucky to have crossed that one off my bucket list at such a young age,” 19-year-old Karlie Kloss (above) said yesterday after her Angel debut, at the VS after-party at the Dream Downtown. “I got to dance with Adam Levine and Kanye, and wear a pair of wings. Onstage, I felt on top of the world, it was wild.” She wasn’t the only catwalk veteran to make her VS debut last night. Joining her—both on the catwalk and at the party—were Karmen Pedaru, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Sui He, and Joan Smalls. Naturally, all the established Angels made winged appearances, too. Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, and Anne Vyalitsina have all been around the VS block many times before. But according to Anne V. (who high-fived her boyfriend, Adam Levine, during his Maroon 5 set during the show), the spectacular ups the ante annually—and demands that the girls do the same. “This year was particularly competitive…like getting our bodies ready and really getting into the workouts,” she told Style.com. Those long hours in the gym paid off. “Everybody looked over-the-top amazing,” she gushed.

Rocker Style Two Ways, Hot Teddies, And More…

-------

Clothing fit for spending every day out on your corner in the pouring rain? Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine joins the family business and founds a fashion line, 222, named for his lucky number. Apparently his brief obsession with Balenciaga, Ann Demeulemeester, and Margiela has given way to a preference for leather jackets, jeans, and ripped tees—all of which he’ll now sell you, too. [WWD]

Speaking of rocker fashion, Liam Gallagher’s lookbook for his Pretty Green line is out, starring noted model Liam Gallagher. Said Gallagher spends the entire lookbook gazing upwards, looking confused (left). [NY Mag]

Today’s trend report: teddy bears, now a thing. See: Karl Lagerfeld for Steiff, a couch made of teddy bear fur, some squeezable Miu Miu skirts, and Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s dog, Teddy. [The Moment]

And the latest Target collaboration may be our favorite one yet. Wait for it: Simon Doonan. Halloween costumes. Including his-’n'-hers spaghetti-and-meatballs costumes. Yes, yes, and yes. [WWD]

Blasblog: Bye-Bye Brazil and Hello Barack

-------

Even though I did my part when it came to last week’s groundbreaking Democratic process back in America (I voted absentee from Missouri before I headed south, and even canvased for Barack in the swing state of Pennsylvania), I never anticipated that left-out feeling when it came to last week’s historical moment. It was like not being invited to Popular Johnny’s house party in school, times ten. At any rate, a few of us huddled together in the Hotel Fasano to watch the results, including Byrdie Bell, Natalia Vodianova, and Justin Portman—certainly not the most unattractive posse with whom to witness history. And as Rio went on, it turns out we weren’t the only ones excited about what happened on the other side of the equator, even if were weren’t there for it. Alice Dellal opened the 284 show in a shirt that read “Barack Rocks,” which, as the owner of the company, Luciana Tranchesi, told me, had been printed weeks ago (“We didn’t have any doubt,” she said). Also, in a scheduling coincidence, I bumped into the Maroon 5 boys on Saturday night. They too had been out of the country on the South American leg of their tour on election night. “We were bummed about that,” said lead singer Adam Levine (seen here with Bell and lead guitar James Valentine). “But then, it was kind of cool to be onstage when it was announced, and to be able to tell everyone in the stands.” Chimed in Valentine, “Now that was a historical moment for us.”
