There comes a time in your life when you graduate from youthful adolescence to an adult, some quicker than others. We got a taste in Karlie’s Vogue Italia editorial, but now, we see that our princess has grown up into a sex kitten to be reckoned with. During MBFW, I was not only lucky enough to stand next to Karlie, but I got to witness the walk. Put me down gently now, for I have seen it all.

There may be more covers coming, but I’m going to focus on these right now. I believe this may be Miss Kloss’s first shoot with Karl, so I’m going to say this is really major for her career. May she become a Chanel girl, amen. Covering in Jean Paul Gaultier haute couture, Karlie’s cover was the first to be revealed and obviously our girl is working it. Need the editorials ASAP.

The cover is so promising, but I’ll spare you the editorial. To sum it up: over-styled, a stolen wig from 80′s pop star cartoon, Jem, and the same facial expression that I just want to smack to make her close her mouth. Picture painted.

I really cherish Karl Lagerfeld. He’s a glistening diamond in the rough, but whenever he brings models into his crowd, they change severely. Abbey was so adorable before this gaunt, bleached out phase she’s going through now. Sure, she looks wonderful on the cover in my favorite flowing Lanvin, but I really just want to caress her now, peroxide white, thin locks and tell her to go back to the lovely Abbey we once all knew and loved.

Arizona isn’t my favorite newcomer by far, but editorial-wise, if she can bring it, girlfriend better to make up for her jank runway walk. I absolutely despise her runway and wish she’d go into hiding. Unfortunately, I believe the Paris runways will only bring more Arizona, but I’m hoping Freja makes her back to them, since she’s been absent and quiet all month, like most seasoned vets.
Now for the cover. I love it. There’s exquisite Chanel and the two look flawless. The editorial is much better with haute couture pieces of Givenchy, Elie Saab, and Armani Prive. We can’t wait for the high quality editorial images of what seem to be fairly impressive. Stay tuned.

Remember what we said about Prada being everywhere? At least it makes for a completely seductive and tantalizing cover for Eniko, whom I feel I need more in my life, please and thank you.

Despite her personal and marital problems hitting the headlines, Heidi Mount can at least attest to a strong and emotional editorial for Numéro. One can really hope that the rumors are all indeed false, so let’s just gaze upon some beautiful photos, because I too feel sadness and lachrymose when sitting around in my best YSL…or at least probably would if I were in her situation and could afford YSL.

Thoughts, questions or concerns?
Eeeek. Cringeworthy and unintentionally ridiculous/awesome at the same time. Can this even be considered blackface? I know Constance is pretty fair-skinned, so she just could be really bronzed with just a black child, right? Right?

Miranda must be relieved that she walked for Prada because now her high fashion career is booming like hotcakes, whatever that means. Why hasn’t this girl been doing shoots like this before? It’s not quite the level that I want to see her at yet, but she’s definitely growing on me. She does look absolutely ethereal in a crown of thorns wearing Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, and those killer Christian Louboutin’s. I still see that they have to soften her makeup to make her less catalog. Who knew there was a price to being too cute?

Dare I even mention it? CoughMiuMiuCoughPradaCough. There isn’t an editorial that doesn’t get better from it, is all I’m saying. Maybe one day I won’t have to mention the products of Miuccia when she finally sends me a collar with nude ladies. One can dream, right? I mean, Ke$ha has hit songs, like, songs people listen to on the radio. Taylor Swift still sings about magical boys or something. When is it my turn, Ke$#@*!a? When is it my turn to basque in that glittery sun?!
I need to cool down and focus. I should be grateful I’m not just a performing dumpster, so lets focus on what’s in front of us. Add the likes of Givenchy mixed with beautiful leathers and finely tailored clothes on Magdalena, you have this perfectly style editorial. Magda is pulling distressed beauty all too perfectly.
