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.

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.
