Plus, the state of independent beauty post-pandemic.

Okay, "Vogue" Italia wins.
Also, Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez are hanging? Okay.
And One Direction made ANOTHER FREAKING FRAGRANCE.
Talk about iconic.

Will Victoria's Secret Lose Its Lingerie Industry Bra-opoly?: Wave buh-bye to that tape-measuring lady and meet the new breed of lingerie startups changing the way we shop for bras.
The models revealed more than just a lot of skin. Each one was interviewed about her lenthy career, revealing some interesting tidbits about their rise to success and the '90s modeling industry. For instance...
Karl Lagerfeld, with his vaguely priest-like uniform, is considered the "pope" of fashion, and was followed throughout his day-to-day life over 16 months for a new four-hour German documentary comparing fashion to religion. Obviously, Lagerfeld said some ridiculous things about actual popes along the way.
Words like "legend" and "visionary" are often overused--especially in the fashion world. But both would accurately describe modeling agent John Casablancas, who died Saturday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil of cancer, the New York Times is reporting. He was 70. If the glamorous supermodel era of the '80s and '90s could be attributed to one person, it would be Casablancas. But his career was shrouded in almost as much controversy as it was glamor.
In this day and age of digital, it feels like pretty much anyone can pick up a camera (or an iPhone) and be a photographer. Between street style blogs and independent publications, there is a seemingly endless stream of opportunities for an aspiring fashion photographer. But opportunities that pay? Much fewer and far between. How does one get to be the next the next Mario Testino or Arthur Elgort? Enter Bottega Veneta's "New Exposure" photography competition.
The CFDA Awards--aka fashion's Oscars--are upon us. But unlike the Oscars, where celebs tend to play it safe and throw on a strapless fish-tail number, the CFDA red carpet tends to be a bit more interesting, a bit more risky. These are fashion people trying to impress other fashion people, after all. So with that in mind, take a look at what everyone from Hillary Clinton to Jessica Chastain wore tonight.
The 2013 CFDA awards, fashion's Oscars if you will, will be handed out in mere hours. The industry has been gathering to recognize and honor its leading talents since 1981. A lot has changed since the early years of the awards. What was once a small intimate industry event is now a widely covered celebrity event. "I think it reflects a broader shift over the last few years where fashion has become more and more popular," Style.com's editor in chief Dirk Standen told us. "The internet has had a lot to do with that. It's entertainment on a par with movies and music." So to prep you for tonight's awards we've assembled this handy primer. In it you'll find the complete list of nominees, our predictions on who will take home the big prizes, and all the celebrity presenters and attendees slated to show up.
It's not such a stretch to imagine some fashion people as cartoon characters, is it? Here are the Disney versions of all your favorites in the industry, straight from the Barneys/Disney holiday collab.
Unless you were under any illusions otherwise (we doubt you were): Barneys really, really knows how to throw a good party. So you can imagine our excitement when the department store invited us to dinner and drinks at the NoMad Hotel's rooftop to celebrate Rag & Bone's latest bag this past Monday--a much-needed respite from NYFW's crazy schedule.
The launch of Carine Roitfeld's new magazine, CR Fashion Book, is mere days away (it hits newsstands on September 13), and in addition to all the teasers and previews we've gotten, today brings two new meaty Carine interviews, complete with new peeks at the cover and editorials. We're starting to wonder...have we seen the whole mag at this point? No matter. We like what we see. From models getting peed on to Carine's supposed beef with Conde Nast (and being banned from using their photogs) here's everything we know about CR without having ever actually laid eyes on it.
Supermodels are having a resurgence. Our faves from the 80s and 90s are still popping up on runways (Alexander Wang), editorials (Naomi Campbell in W
Last night's Costume Institute Gala may have been filled almost exclusively with famous rich people in formalwear, but we think they all brought som
Last night's Met Gala offered plenty of ultra-glam shots--but thanks to the crowded red carpet it also gave us some excellent and hilarious photobombs. And, as everyone knows, as fun as it is to see your favorite celebrities looking all poised and fancy, posing for the cameras, it's even more fun to see them looking slightly disheveled and confused in the background. So without further ado, click through to see the best photobombs of the night, from Amy Poehler's awesome mischievous grin, to Donatella Versace's poker face.
Well, that was fast. After only a few days in court, Linda Evangelista and her baby daddy Francois-Henri Pinault have reached an out of court settlement in their child support battle, the New York Post is reporting. Evangelista shocked pretty much everyone last week when it was reported that the supermodel was asking for an astronomical $46,000 a month in child support payments, saying that her son Augie needed round the clock nannies, armed guards and a separate apartment near his school for play dates. While the settlement sum was not disclosed, we have a feeling Pinault must have coughed up something pretty close to Evangelista's asking price--after all, Evangelista doesn't seem like the type to back down.
