Happy 128th birthday, Mademoiselle Chanel.
I’ll be reading my Chanel: A Woman of Her Own biography while clutching my pearls in bouclé tweed.
May you continue being one of the most influential designers long after your death, and inspiring girls on Facebook (who don’t know anything about Chanel past the name and the earrings their daddy bought them) to post your quotes.
Touché, Ms. Wintour. Touché.
How many tweens actually know what Fashion Night Out is or truly care about anything else besides GLEE? I’m guessing very few. Whatever drives business. You win this round, Wintour.

Well, Claudia looks great. I also can see that Dolce & Gabbana is going to be in a lot of editorials and on a lot of covers.
But really. Rough.

I think I’ll just post random Madonna fashion moments in honor of her 53rd birthday today.
For our first moment, let’s honor “Vogue.” From revealing lace, bold lips, defining dance moves, and inspiration from Marie Antoinette, “Vogue” is a major point in this Queen’s career, not only in music, but in fashion.

Happy birthday to the Queen.

Here is the making of and behind-the-scenes look at Mango’s F/W 11.12 campaign shot by Terry Richardson, starring no other than the divine Kate Moss. Always glamorous; always fabulous.
Found this gem while cleaning my room. How it survived this long is beyond me.
Most have seen the editorial by Mert and Marcus, so here’s the film that goes along with the shoot. Sort of eerily beautiful, no?
A true fashion icon in her own right.
Happy birthday, Madonna. 53 doesn’t mean a thing.
This is particularly breathtaking and refreshing for Testino as of late. Starring Freja Beha and Arizona Muse, this editorial had potential to be yet another stereotype casting of the two, but the direction and styling alone is gorgeous. Freja emits slightly more emotion and plays her role with more emphasis than Arizona does, but I can’t say I expect much from Arizona already. Regardless, the two make for a stunning shoot in Chanel and in – brace yourselves for my regular fap to Givenchy – but the iris print in the Givenchy photographs so well. I’m dying for the pops of color in the otherwise use of black and white.

Kate in McQueen
I still claim that my invitation was lost somewhere in the mail. Kate’s wedding was the wedding to be at, and such a darling wedding at that. Who cares about the royal wedding nonsense when the Kate Moss is getting married?
First off, I want to thank Anna Wintour for not only providing a lovely cover, but providing us all with a brilliant idea for the September issue: Kate’s wedding. She is but the queen, am I right?
Going through the photos, some big names were in attendance at her wedding. There was Stella McCartney and her father, Paul McCartney, Jack White and Karen Elson, Hamish Bowles, Naomi Campbell, Marc Jacobs, Daphne Guinness, Lara Stone, and many others were all their to witness the nuptials and the soiree that happened after. Such a charming celebration it must have been.
For photos, follow the cut or go to Vogue.com. I know I will be purchasing this issue the moment I find it on newsstands.
