Fashion News Roundup: Anna Wintour Made Hamish Bowles Try Out for X-Factor, Alice Temperley Thinks London Fashion Week Is Better Than New York's, and a List of Movie Designers that Should Exist in Real Life

Alice Temperley Wants A Longer LFW: The Pippa fave feels London Fashion Week--which, at five days, is the shortest of the major four--should be extended. Says Ms. Temperley, "London's better than New York Fashion Week now." Alright, now tell us how you really feel! {Telegraph} McCartney's Collab for NYC Ballet: Stella McCartney has designed the costumes for a new ballet opening Thursday with a score penned by her dear old dad Paul. The designer feels collaborating with your father is "emotional" for anybody, but that "on another side, I know and understand I am working with Paul McCartney.” {WWD} Fashion and Fantasy Mix in New Shopping Technology: "Augmented Realities" are growing in popularity on online shopping sites, where the obvious lack of trying-before-buying has always been a major problem. New and improved AR apps generally involve live feeds and 3-D imagery, allowing users to "try on" clothes, makeup, glasses... and grow horns?? {NY Times}

Abbey Lee and Alexa Play Twiggy: Everyone's mad for mod right now - peep Abbey Lee and Alexa C doing their best Twiggy impressions on the current issues of i-D and Harper's Bazaar UK, respectively. Far out and groovy. {BellaSugar}

Makeover for Harper's Bazaar: The fash mag is getting an overdue makeover, including an increase in size and a decrease in frequency, down to ten issues a year. Hearst is banking on the reboot, since Harper's suffered the roughest first half of all the major fashion publications. {WWD}

Anna Wintour Made Hamish Bowles Audition for X Factor in a Gold Suit: The European Editor-at-Large suffered "Vogue hazing" at the hand of Queen Anna, who signed him up as a contestant for the US X Factor singing comp in New Jersey. His audition song? "Oops!... I Did It Again." Dying. Fingers crossed his audition makes it to TV when the show airs later this month! {Racked}

Movie Designers We "Reely" (Ha!) Wish Were Real: Designers we would include in our Dream Fashion Week: The Genie from Aladdin and Zoolander's Mugatu. {Lucky}
