Fashion News Roundup: Alex Wang Nail Polish, Florence Welch Covers Japanese Vogue and Old Navy's Punctuation Problems

Genderbending Florence Welch On October Vogue Japan: We haven't even seen all of the September issues yet and vogue Japan is already rolling out its October cover, which is awesome. Karl Lagerfeld shot musician Florence Welch, who looks like Jack White's long-lost brother with slicked-back hair and red-white-and-black suiting. {Daily Mail} Alexander Wang is Making Sally Hansen Polish! He's working with the nail polish megabrand on a line of exclusive colors to debut at his Spring 2012 show. It's his first foray into beauty and will probably be insanely popular; don't expect them to sit on shelves for long (if at all). {Style.com} Details on the Style.com Magazine: According to their website, the print magazine will launch "just days after the last look has left the runway" and will focus on every aspect of the Spring 2012 shows: clothing and trends, but also people, parties and backstage peeks. They'll post daily updates on Twitter until the launch. {Style.com}

What Fifth Ave. Looked Like Before Shopping Took Over: In the good 'ol days, Fifth Avenue was just a stretch of beautiful buildings, many home to the rich and powerful (think Vanderbilts). It's... sort-of changed? The homes are gone, but see what still-rich businesses took their places. {Lucky}

The decision is reportedly part of the acquisition talks between PPR and Brioni, though both declined to comment. Their Milan show is scheduled for September 25, but considering this, will the show still go on? {WWD}

The shoes arrived the day before and there were too many jewels on the heel... So we had women working up until midnight to change it." {WWD}
