Attractive people get naked. Happy Friday!
Don't miss a beat: Here were the biggest stories in fashion this week.
The film, which features 20 strangers kissing for the first time, may be one of the most-viewed fashion films of all time.
With the recent departures of Cathy Horyn and Suzy Menkes, the New York Times is planning some new hires.
There was a time that on All Hallow's Eve, fashion industry insiders weren't glued to their desks at 2 a.m. finalizing their next issues, or having dinner with Madonna. Chances are that on October 31st, 20-some years ago, they were hitting the streets with mom and dad in a costume they'd later regretted choosing, all in the pursuit of Whoppers and Reese's Pieces.

We're basically obsessed with everything stylist/Lula EIC Leith Clark does and her first design gig is no exception.
It wasn’t until a store placed an order for nearly everything on offer that Melissa Coker of LA-based label Wren realized she had a bona fide fashion line. But the designer has certainly come a long way since then. We caught up with Coker, who is now based in a spacious studio in downtown LA, where she produces her collections. Of course we were dying to know how one of our favorite indie labels grew from a hobby to a successful brand, and how Helmut Lang and Andre Leon Tally played a part. Read on to find out how Melissa Coker of Wren is making it...
Tavi Gevinson recently starred in Wren's fall 2012 short film, "Beware of Young Girls." In it, she displayed several of her many talents, including singing, and inspired her directors (and I) to gush about about how great and smart and inspiring she and her website, Rookie, are. Indeed, Gevinson is someone to "beware of" in the sense that she's got a bright future ahead of her. So, when Wren offered us the chance to shoot her a few questions, we asked her about just that. Click through for Tavi's thoughts on shooting the Wren film, her toned down personal style, pursuing singing/modeling/acting and college, which she does plan to attend.
LOS ANGELES--It was an evening of film and fashion last night as L.A.’s style setters crowded into TENOVERSIX to fete What’s Up, a short film by Gia Coppola (Sofia's niece and mini-me) in collaboration with Wren’s Melissa Coker and styled by Lula Magazine’s Leith Clark (who unfortunately missed her flight and wasn’t able to join in on the fun). The film, which first debuted at New York Fashion Week spring 2012, follows the adorable and very bored Bella Zarember as she looks for ways to fight her ennui in the City of Angels. Rich and bored in LA? Sounds like a Coppola movie! And what do you do when you're a stylish bespectacled LA high schooler with time to kill? Change in and out of lots of different outfits (all Wren styled by Leith Clark) and accessories with jewelry from Wren x Fallon. “The clothes speak for themselves, so I just focused on everything else,” said Coppola, who, like the rest of us, cites aunt Sofia as her style idol.
