Anyone who reads Fashionista will know that our crushes are simple and finite: We love Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn, Gemma Ward, Johnny Depp, Sofia Coppola, Luella Bartley, Phoebe Philo, Irina, you, Henry Holland, The Rolling Stones, and the fashion photographer Nick Knight, whose clients include Burberry, McQueen, and most of British Vogue. So of course, we're a little excited, because although we've met almost everyone on that above list (still waiting on Phoebe, Johnny, and 1 of the Stones...) we've never even seen Nick Knight in person... until now. The ShowStudio founder comes to town on Friday, February 1 to debut a film with the menswear designer Bernard Wilhelm. The project presents Wilhelm's Fall '08 collection, and premiers at the Tribeca Grand Hotel. Its theme, according to Knight, is Men In Tights, which goes anywhere from Robin Hood to Centerstage or Miuccia Prada's recent runway outing of guys in skirts. Who's psyched?
