I promised we'd talk more about Anna Wintour and Paris Fashion Week today, and here we go: This morning, Lauren Goldstein Crowe at Portfolio discusses the possibility of a condensed Paris Fashion Week, where there's 30 shows only, with 10 being American. Her take? She thinks the rumor is true, since Anna had a hand in shaping up Milan. And her scorecard: Big designers win - they get more attention. Big magazines win - they get to shrink their budgets. Big hotels lose - whatever will the Plaza Athénée do? Small designers can go either way: They'll lose Paris, but they can move to London, further establishing the city as a style hotbed. Of course, if those designers get angry, they can protest in these new shirts from Neighborhoodies, as seen on Racked. Meanwhile, if Fashionista had our way, they wouldn't say "Devil" - so lame - but maybe, um... ALL I WANNA / SEE IS ANNA?
