Jil Sander Navy Heads Online


Here comes Navy—and orange and cerulean, too. Jil Sander Navy, the secondary collection from Raf Simons, previewed back in May and available now in JS stores, debuts its new Web site,, this afternoon. The site will spotlight the new, David Sims-shot campaign with Valerija Kelava and styled by Beat Bolliger (that’s an exclusive shot from it, left). The photos will run in spring magazine issues separately from the main Jil ads. (Those, incidentally, were shot by Willy Vanderperre, starring Daria Strokous.) A behind-the-scenes video directed by Sims will also screen on the new site. That should whet your appetite for the pieces. It’s convenient, then, that the site will be able to satisfy, too: Selections from the 200-piece collection will be available for purchase online for the very first time.

The White Shirt Is White Hot, The Foot To Book (If You Only Book One), And More…


With the men’s fashion weeks fast approaching, guys’ style is on the mind, and one piece in particular is capturing editors’ attentions: The basic white dress shirt. “Replace it often,” says The New York Times. Go ahead and buy seven, says Gilt Manual. We’ve been noticing lately that more than a few ladies are taking these hints, too. [NYT / Gilt Manual]

In an age of the famous brand ambassador, the movie-star campaign model, and yes, even Snooki, Women’s Wear Daily wonders, has fashion become more focused on the celebrities than the fashions? [WWD]

When they want a great face, casting directors and model bookers call Julia Saner. For total attitude? Valerija Kelava. And for the right foot… Christina Ambers (left)? W takes you inside the world of niche modeling: Meet the feet (and hands, and legs, and abs) that star in the ads and films we see every day. [W]

And congratulations to Lady Gaga, who, according to the accountants at Forbes, will make $100 million dollars this year. But, as Gawker rightly notes, that doesn’t take into account her presumably enormous clothing budget. [Gawker]

A Peek Backstage At Viktor & Rolf


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.

The Gang’s All Here At Balenciaga, Taylor’s On Her Own, Wang Takes His Show On The Road, And More…


MObama hosted a party for this year’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards at the White House, honoring the year’s best in design (though the fashion design award winners, Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, didn’t attend.) The FLOTUS wore Isabel Toledo for the occasion. [WWD]

Balenciaga’s Fall campaign is out, and the multi-girl spreads star reigning catwalk queens Freja Beha Erichsen, Mirte Maas, and Valerija Kelava, but also gorgeous-as-ever Stella Tennant and Karen Elson (pictured). Who’s your favorite? [Fashionologie]

Taylor Momsen fired her stylist. Now she’s got nobody but herself to blame for those raccoon eyes. [NY Mag]

Alexander Wang is known for his downtown-NYC cool, so when he began the trunk-show circuit—heading first to Canada’s Holt Renfrew—he boxed it up and brought it along with him. Or, we should say, tented it up. Wang’s been traveling with a custom-made tent, complete with fluorescent lights, TV screens, and inflatable furniture to replicate his Tribeca studio. [WWD]

A new Web site,, encourages users to wear a combination of only six items every day for 31 days. We’re all for getting back to basics, but this is one fad diet we’ll be passing on. [NYT]

Our Top New Models—And Then Some


With Fall 2010 fashion week officially over, we’ve pulled together our seasonal list of the top ten new runway strutters to watch. We were wowed by the Kirby twins, smitten with the Argentine stunners Tati Cotliar and Carla Gebhart, and love Celine campaign star Valerija Kelava. (Side note on her: Is it just us, or is she a dead ringer for fashion icon-of-the-moment Patti Smith?) But with only ten slots to fill, there were bound to be some very deserving honorable mentions. Some modelizers are no doubt rooting for Yuliana Dementyeva (left), the icy-hot Ukrainian who opened Riccardo Tisci’s Fall Givenchy show. Julia Nobis (center) nabbed a Calvin Klein exclusive in New York, but spots at Dries Van Noten, Celine, Rick Owens, LV, and Miu Miu in Europe should keep her top-of-mind. And Ruby Aldridge (right), seemed to be everywhere in New York, where she opened Marc by Marc Jacobs, but she found time to take the first walk at Erdem in London, too. What do you think? Are there any we missed? Which models are you most excited to see next season?
