Fashion News Roundup: Andrej Pejic Has A Song Dedicated to Him, Richard Chai Partners With Filson, and Christina Hendricks Covers UK Cosmo

Someone Wrote A Song About Andrej Pejic: "Fashion Boy," penned by Victoria Aitken is dedicated to the male model, of whom Ms. Aitken is a card-carrying stan: "As a muse to my latest single, Andrej has taken us to territory we haven't chartered before. I'm absolutely mad about him!" {Vogue UK} PETA Puts Up Billboard in Garment District: Penelope Cruz casts what we think was meant to be a disapproving eye on the entire garment district, in a black-and-white campaign for the animal rights group. {Racked} Death by Hair Extensions: While you've been worrying about the formaldehyde in your Brazilian blowout, a London woman was rushed to the emergency room after passing out in a nightclub. The cause? Coroners say she possibly suffered an allergic reaction from the wig glue she'd applied to attach her hair extensions. What a tragedy, and a steep price to pay for beauty. {Daily Mail}

Ralph Rucci Cancels Runway Show: Louis Vuitton and Céline aren't the only houses scaling back their runway shows this year. Ralph Rucci is rolling with the trend, opting for private appointments at his showroom rather than the big budget presentation at Lincoln Center. His sister and communications director says: "cost is always a factor but [that] was not the driving force behind this decision." Well, that's one less show for already swamped editors to attend. {WWD subscription required}
