Fashion News Roundup: ALT on What The First Lesbian President Should Wear, More News on Kate's Wedding Dress and Was Carine Canned?

Carine Canned? Racked is reporting that Carine Roitfeld was fired from French Vogue, citing the EIC as the reason for the mag being blacklisted at Balenciaga and Bernard Arnault threatening to pull all LVMH ads from the next issue. "Basically, she was fired," a source tells Racked. Quel scandale! Not sure if we buy it though. {Racked} Royal Dress Update: HuffPo's royal's correspondent is reporting that while the odds have Bruce Oldfield to design Kate Middleton's wedding dress, she'll likely wear a lesser known British designer who has dressed all the Middleton women (sister Pippa and mother Carole included) over the years. {Huffington Post} When We Have a Lesbian President, ALT Knows How She Should Dress: In her Sunday Times column, Maureen Down mused about whether we are ready for a gay commander in chief following the landmark vote to repeal "Don't Ask Don't Tell." She consulted André Leon Talley who told her that he imagines a lesbian president "who looks like Julie Andrews and dresses to meet heads of state in 'ankle-length skirts, grazing the Manolo Blahnik kitten heels.' She would save her 'butch trouser suit for weekends at Camp David and vacation hikes in Yellowstone. No plaid lumberjack shirts at any time.'" {NYT}
