I need Style.com like I need my morning coffee. But I've been clicking on Vogue.com more and more lately, in part because I'm anxiously awaiting obvious changes and excited for Condé Nast to really truly enter the digital age (I'd never actually say that out loud), but also because it lets you see a totally different side of Vogue's editors. Hamish has his sphere and Candy has her cast, but some features, like Meredith Melling Burke's Most Wanted, feature a rotating cast of Vogue-ettes listing their current favorite things. Sometimes there's a theme, like Devon Schuster's wedding or Jane Aldridge's shoes and sometimes there's not. Like this week's list, from features associate Stephanie LaCava, is basically because she has ridiculously great style. She's mixed Proenza shorts with Topshop boots and a Band of Outsiders toggle coat; it's fun to see the thought process behind style we consistently admire. Surprisingly, Vogue.com's the best place to go if you ever forget that even the most major fashion people have a sense of humor.
News in Vogue: MMB Gives Up the Index, Proenza Pretty Much Confirms Its Partnership With Andrew Rosen, and Anna + Blake, Again?!
I received my February Vogue in the mail yesterday, and I've got to hand it to them, it was a fantastic issue. There were some lovely little tidbits in there that I'm happy to share: Meredith Melling Burke is no longer the editor of the Index pages. Fashion market editor Jessica Sailer has taken on the task of putting together those back pages. As the Index is one of my favorite sections in Vogue, I noticed that MMB's byline was missing in the January issue. This time around, AW announces in her editor's letter that Sailer is newly in charge. MMB seems to be focusing more on the web these days. We hear from the inside that she's the one everyone at Vogue.com is really reporting to, not Candy. In his profile of Proenza Schouler, fashion news director Mark Holgate says that the duo is about to sign a deal with Andrew Rosen, Theory CEO and Rag & Bone investor.
