Until we get our hands on Grace Coddington’s new memoir (Leah’s currently reading it), we’ll settle for poring over the press surrounding the book, for which she says she was “media trained,” but still lets out some good stuff.
She spoke to the New York Times and the Telegraph about the book, her cats, Anna Wintour, her legion of adoring fans post- The September Issue, her friend Nicolas Ghesquiere, who should play her in a movie and why young designers need to have “a few things going wrong in their life.” Read on to obsess over her with us:
She also taught the Access Hollywood hosts how to “bitchface.”
While Schmidt may be the most irritating character on Fox sitcom The New Girl (or on any show ever), it turns out he’s actually a super awesome person IRL. His tweets are hilarious and apparently he occasionally guest edits Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP. If that fact alone is not enough to convince you of his awesomeness, this hilarious column he wrote for GOOP about his Emmys experience–in which we learn about his love of Tom Ford, Thom Browne, Gwyneth and more–will.
Hurricane Sandy paralyzed the East Coast and most of New York City over the last few days, causing massive destruction and shutting down pretty much everything.

For anyone who’s ever felt insecure about the lack of time you spent raging in out-of-town parents’ basements as a teen, Harry Brant is here tell you everything is OK: You didn’t spend most of your Friday nights watching TGIF alone because you were uncool–there just hadn’t been a Chanel soiree to attend! High school parties aren’t worth the energy.
Last week, Lena Dunham tried out the pajama trend (we think), in a longish teal silk blouse paired with matching tap shorts.
While those who have watched Lena Dunham’s HBO show Girls or her film Tiny Furniture have already seen Dunham in several pantsless looks, some people found her thigh-revealing outfit last week inappropriate, and even offensive.
