Fashion News Roundup: Billy's Big Win, Crystal Renn on the Today Show and Mrs. Obama Honors Rodarte

We Heart Billy Reid: It's been a few months since Billy Reid was named GQ's Best Menswear Designer of the Year, but we insist you check out this video GQ just posted. It gives a behind-the-scenes look at the exclusive presentation of each designer's collection to the judges. Watch 'til the end when Billy is presented with the grand prize. He's so happy and even starts to tear up! It's too cute. {GQ.com} Crystal Renn's Today Show Confessions: The fashion world has been in a tizzy over (fomerly?) plus size model Crystal Renn's apparent weight loss. The model went on the Today Show to dispel and explain. She says those Fashion for Passion photos were retouched to make her look like a size two, that she has been doing a new exercise routine, and that she's been in recovery from anorexia for seven years. {The Cut} Kelly Cutrone's Books Need Their Own Section: Yes, Kelly Cutrone is working on a second book, tentatively titled Yes I Said That. But she doesn't want this book to end up where her last one did--in the self-help section. “My idea is that there should be a section called ‘Journey’ and when my book comes out in May, I want it to be in [this] new section.” {People Style Watch}
