On Sunday night, the stars came out in droves to hit up all the Oscars after-parties and to show off their fancy dresses. We were pleasantly surprised to see Britney Spears (newly brunette!) in the bunch, looking the best she’s looked in years.
Both André Leon Talley and Vogue deny that he is leaving the magazine, as reported in Saturday’s New York Post.

If you haven’t heard, yet another modeling competition show called The Face is about to make its debut and it has a few big names behind it: ANTM cast-off Nigel Barker, Coco Rocha, Karolina Kurkova, and Naomi Campbell. Campbell hopped on a conference call with me and some other journalists to chat about her new gig. Yes, I got to listen to Naomi Campbell talk on the phone for an hour. It was pretty unreal.
Last week, the CFDA announced it was partnering with Organic Avenue to provide models with support and education as well as a 50% discount on all the retailer’s food and juices during fashion week through March 31.
The collaboration comes after models complained about the “difficulty of finding food that is both nutritious and convenient” during fashion week, and is part of the CFDA‘s ongoing efforts to address the working conditions models face and raise awareness about eating disorders within the industry.
The program has already faced severe criticism from numerous mainstream media outlets. But, in our opinion, it’s for all the wrong reasons.
Some say the age of the personal style blogger is over.
Today, the girl needs more than an outfit, a boyfriend, and a camera. Bloggers need to think about production quality, editorial strategy, and affiliate programs to really gain a foothold on the web. They are more like editors, creating publications worthy of a million-person audience than a few thousand super-fans.
Yet it still comes down that camera. Nine times out of 10, the bloggers who move merchandise, who get people talking, who attract repeat advertisers, love to strike a pose.
So we say the personal style blogger isn’t going anywhere—-in fact, she’s more powerful than ever.
Nigel Barker, who was on America’s Next Top Model for 17 seasons (seventeen–think about that, people) returns to reality tv with Oxygen’s The Face on February 12.
The fashion industry might not be shying away from television exposure now, but according to Barker, that wasn’t always the case.
