Are you still obsessed with French Vogue's December issue? The one that gives John Galliano the reigns as guest editor, and hails Sasha Pivavovra as its peg-legged drag king? Fashionista certainly is, and we're panting over Sasha's model portfolio, rife with pics from the shoot. Meanwhile, the runway still throbs with Anna Sui's swashbuckling, slightly insane Spring show during Fashion Week, where pirate chic was almost as popular as Mischa Barton. Here at Fashionista, we don't have any Dior eye patches, but we do have this ultra cheesyPirate Name generator, where we rechristen the Buckaneer wannabes of Paris, Milan, and New York. After all, even Jack Sparrow had a civilian name once... what was it again? Keith Richards?

Rumor: Could Galliano Be Involved With the Revival of Schiaparelli?
News broke yesterday that Derek Lam was leaving his post as creative director of Tod's after 5 plus years. This morning a follow up story in WWD confirmed that fall 2012 Tod's collection was indeed Lam's last collection for the brand but neither party has yet commented. Which leaves things completely open for rumor and speculation. In a rather off-handed way, WWD dropped this little nugget: Lam’s departure coincides with continued speculation that John Galliano was in talks with the Italian firm to either do a Tod’s capsule collection or revamp its Schiaparelli brand. However, Della Valle firmly dismissed the rumors. Um, what?
