Karlie Kloss for US Vogue May 2010 – Seasons of Our Discontent
Don't you just LOVE this shot of Karlie Kloss in a Dolce & Gabbana maillot? I thought it was a dead accurate portrayal of the current retail scene. Yes, it's definitely disturbing that we're buying wool coats in the middle of summer or shorts, bathing suits and anything chiffon in January.
Plum Sykes hit a home run on her article "Seasons of Our Discontent"
on the May 2010 issue of American Vogue. Go get your copy now.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Army of Fierce, Jacketed Jaguars
Here’s a quick video of the finale of Dolce & Gabbana’s fall/winter 2010 womenswear show. 70 pairs of legs, 70 models sporting stunning, well-tailored jackets — a Dolce & Gabbana classic.
Quite an emotional show, this one. The lovely Jessica Michault of the International Herald Tribune told me and Suzy Menkes at the Roberto Cavalli show that she almost choked from the splendor and sheer beauty of Dolce & Gabbana’s collection. Many journalists were touched and share the same teary-eyed sentiment.
The Fall/Winter 2010 shows will kick off this week, starting with menswear in Milan. Here’s a quick preview of what’s coming our way, courtesy of Dolce & Gabbana’s pre-show diary series.
It’s Domenico and Stefano’s 20th year in menswear and I’m definitely excited to see what they have in their sleeves. Too bad I won’t be able to make it to the shows. I need to save $$$ so I’m skipping Fall 2010 altogether.
However, just like the old days, I’m gonna watch the Dolce & Gabbana and D&G shows online. Ahhh the beauty of the internet.
Remember Regina George from Mean Girls? Well, actress Rachel McAdams (in Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2010) is on the cover of January 2010 issue of American Vogue.
Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2010
I remember whining not too long ago how American Vogue usually picks from the same pool of actresses for the covers, namely Nicole, Charlize, Cameron, Sienna, etc. so this cover is quite a bit of a shocker and totally unexpected.
It's a good thing, no?
Anyhoo, I'm particularly curious with two of their cover stories — "Youthquake 2010" and "When Size 4 is Too Big".
I think I'm buying this issue.

Back in June, I swore to myself I'll never get photographed beside a model again because I'm not comfortable with the huge disparity between looks… but the inevitable happened. SUPER POWER WONDER TWINS ACTIVATE! Backstage at Dolce & Gabbana, holy moly it's Natasha Poly!
Me and my favourite model in the history of all time. The most ferocious walker ever, ever, ever, EVER! I'll never apologize for saying I love her more than I love Gisele, Kate and Naomi COMBINED.
In a very bizarre (and surreal) twist of fate, I had the privilege and honor of sitting on the same row as some of the fashion industry's heavyweights at the Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2010 fashion show yesterday afternoon: IHT/NY Times' Suzy Menkes, Michael Roberts of Vanity Fair, American Vogue's Sally Singer (who I really love and admire), Anna Wintour and Hamish Bowles, and Tommy Ton of Jak and Jil.
I'm usually the early bird when it comes to fashion shows but this time around, I went there two or three minutes before the show began because of pre-show interviews I did upstairs. When I finally settled to my seat, reality hit me. There I was, sitting amongst THE establishment. Influential people who shaped fashion for years and whose work you've kept track of since childhood. I've lost all sense of self and wrote a post on twitter how I wished for the ground to open up and swallow me alive. I was soo nervous throughout the entire time I even dropped my cellphone to the floor!
Thank you so much Dolce & Gabbana for this wonderful opportunity and for embracing us bloggers with open arms. I'll cherish this experience for the rest of my life.
Coming up next: models! backstage! clothes! Dolce & Gabbana's return to the classic floral prints!
PS. The very handsome 'stached Hamish Bowles is, as always, AWESOME! He came up to me after the show and it's soo nice seeing him again.
are now officially front-row material. At least that was the case at
the D&G show on Thursday, where Neiman Marcus’ Burt Tansky and
Saks’ Steve Sadove and other retail heavyweights were accommodated in
the second row, and further back for fashion directors. In front of
them were four high-profile bloggers — The Sartorialist’s Scott
Schuman, Garance Doré of garancedore.fr, Tommy Ton of jakandjil.com
and Bryan Boy of bryanboy.com. And to make their job easier, two desks
and four laptops were set up right in front of them, entirely
operative, as there's no time to waste in cyberspace.
From Wall Street Journal's Christina Binkley (via twitter):
Arrived in Milan from LA in time to change my shoes and race to DandG. Always weird to see the Saks execs sitting 2nd row in Europe.
Well, Saks may be 2nd row at DandG (so am I), but Bergdorf's and Neiman are 3rd. Correlation to their sales? Milan fashion week.
Honestly – It's a
new world order: federico marchetti, ceo of online retailer Yoox, is
front row at D+G. saks, bergdorf, neiman's, aren't.
