All your Fashion Week news, right in one place.
You guys--she's back. Paris Hilton hit the shows today to check out the Jeremy Scott runway, along with the Jonas brothers and Nicki Minaj. But we saw plenty of other exciting things at day seven of New York Fashion Week. Check 'em out here:
Back in December, we caught wind of a new magazine called Editorialist scheduled to launch this spring, and learned that some Elle staffers were rumored to be involved. While we were wrong (sort of) about Kate Lanphear's involvement (she went to T), two other former Elle staffers are indeed behind it.
A brand new magazine may have snapped up the departed Elle editors. Here's what we know.
Looks like more editorial shakeups are on the way over at Elle. Just one month after the magazine lost two of its senior accessories editor, a reliable source has told us that Kate Lanphear, Elle's Style Director, is also leaving the title.
Yesterday, we reported that Kristina O’Neill, formerly of Harper’s Bazaar, would be replacing Deborah Needleman as editor-in-chief of WSJ. And today, WWD has a little more dirt on the subject--namely, who was passed over for the coveted position.
Come si dice "incredible style?"
It's been a long time coming, but it looks like it's officially happened: Fashion editors have fully made the transition into modeling. After years of being stalked by street style photographers and having their perfectly put together ensembles plastered all over the Internet, the faces that were once behind-the-scenes at our favorite glossies have emerged as the industry's most recognizable (and sought after) personalities. The public flocks to fashion industry insiders like Kate Lanphear, Taylor Tomasi-Hill, Joanna Hillman, and Anna Dello Russo for direction when it comes to trends, styling advice, and ultimately, what to buy. From an advertising standpoint, it makes sense to feature editors—who can merchandise pieces and market clothing better than they can? Chances are, the more clout a magazine has during Fashion Month and beyond, the more of these "celebrity editors" are on their mastheads. And giving readers a glimpse at the personal style of these celeb editors is not only a way to get a peek into their enviable, glamorous lives, it's great press for print publications. The lofty ideal of the fashion editor is just as aspirational (and possibly just as unrealistic) as that of a model, but there's the added hints of expertise, self-expression, attention to detail, and appreciation of good design that have helped to make street style photography immensely popular. There's a reason why women like Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld have such a large pull in what ends up on the runways and in stores each season, and it was only a matter of time before the industry cut out the middle man and brought their sensibilities to the forefront. We've explored the evolution of this editors-as-models trend, which shows no sign of slowing down. Are you a fan of this new development?
It's hard to believe there was ever a time that Anna Dello Russo didn't walk around with cherries on top of her head, or that Taylor Tomasi-Hill wasn't impeccably layered behind cat-eye shades. In the past few years, street style blogs like the Sartorialist, Jak & Jil, and Street Peeper have propelled a group of flawlessly and outrageously dressed editors and it-girls to rock star status, their outfits documented by throngs of style paparazzi each time they leave the office. We unearthed snapshots of seven prominent street style icons when they were just names on a masthead. We (and our self-esteem) were surprised and relieved to find that the style of these ladies was once not so different from the rest of ours. Street Style Stars: They Used to Be Just Like Us!
Here's proof editors-as-style-stars are influencing designers: Tibi's Amy Smilovic used street style shots of five editors known for their unique style and created personalized stationery for them as gifts. But if you're not lucky enough to be Italian Elle's Eva Fontanelli, Teen Vogue's Jane Keltner deValle, Elle's Kate Lanphear, Teen Vogue's Mary Kate Steinmiller, or Marie Claire's Taylor Tomasi Hill, you can purchase standard Tibi stationary decorated with adorable illustrations of girls in frothy dresses in Tibi stores or at Tibi.com. Check it out--we've got to admit, the stationery is pretty cute.
