Oprah Covers WSJ Magazine's March fashion issue
Oprah Winfrey is racking up glossy fashion covers this March. With InStyle already under her belt, she's now landed the cover of WSJ Magazine. The image — which could function as her presidential campaign poster — features the multi-talented talk show host in a body-loving, all-black ensemble with her hands raised for joy. The issue obviously celebrates Oprah, but it also celebrates Kristina O'Neill's fifth anniversary as the editor. {WWD}

Tom Ford opens up about his upcoming shows
This Fall 2018 season, Tom Ford is holding two full-out runway shows in New York: The men's show will take place on Tuesday night, while his women's collection will hit the catwalk on Thursday. That's quite a full plate for a man who's spent the past few years experimenting with alternative and more intimate presentation methods. In an interview with WWD, fashion's resident king of glam talks using fur, his sartorial companions' decision to decamp to Paris, his distaste for red carpet politics and what to expect from him this season. {WWD}

Catching up with the creators of @dietprada 
@Dietprada is the meme equivalent to "Gossip Girl"; it's the one and only source into the copycatting practices of fashion's elite.

Following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Hollywood staged a takedown of the media mogul and of sexual harassment in the industry. Then, some fashion predators – namely famous photographers – came under investigation for decades of inappropriate work conduct, but aside from a detailed exposé in The New York Times and various statements made by brands and publications refusing to work with them, these men denied the accusations and appear relatively unscathed. In a new piece published by The Cut, Jessica Pressler questions whether fashion will ever truly speak up and say "time's up." {The Cut}
