Dov Charney's Accuser Speaks Out: Kimbra Lo, the second former American Apparel employee to file suit against founder Dov Charney for sexual harassment, went on the Today show this morning. Lo told Ann Curry Charney attacked her after she showed up at his house to discuss photography and modeling opportunities. "I didn't feel like there was a way for me to leave safely..I was terrified," she said. American Apparel has issued a statement saying they have love letters from Lo to Charney after she left American Apparel and that they have "'smoking gun' photographs undermining her false accusations of unwelcome harassment." {The Cut} The September Issue Director's New Fashion Project: R.J. Cutler is one of the executive producers behind a new show for HBO called Spring/Fall starring Tea Leoni. It's a half hour comedy, "set in New York City against the backdrop of the fashion world and stars Leoni as half of a dysfunctional partnership between two women with different approaches to career, family and friendship." {Deadline} A Carine-Inspired Editorial: Fashion Indie unearthed this editorial from Polish mag Fashion which takes aim at Carine Roitfeld et al. Bonus: a cardboard cut out of Tom Ford features prominently. {Fashion Indie}

A Carine-Inspired Editorial: Fashion Indie unearthed this editorial from Polish mag Fashion which takes aim at Carine Roitfeld et al. Bonus: a cardboard cut out of Tom Ford features prominently. {Fashion Indie} Tom Ford's Five Commandments: In his cover story for AnOther mag, Tom Ford offers his five commandments for being a gentlemen. Number five: "A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach." I agree. Plus I learned the hard way that wearing flip flops in the city can kill you. {Another Mag via the Telegraph}

Hervé Léger Misses the Supers: In an interview with the Daily, Hervé Léger (who created the bandage dress but now designs under the name Hervé L. Leroux after he was forced out of his eponymous label in the late 90s) says he doesn't miss doing runway shows because he thinks today's models are "too skinny, too sad...I knew the age of the super top models, Linda Evangelista and Cindy Crawford, who were always lively and smiling. Today you go between several défilés and you will see the exact same type of girl--it just doesn’t inspire me." {The Daily}
