FashionBytes: A lot of Vogue and abs!

My one key takeout from this week’s fashion fix, is the fact that I sort of want to rock The Situation t-shirt – is it so much of a car crash fashion fail that it (or some variation of it) might actually look hot?

In other news, it was London Fashion Week and one of the most digitally interactive fashion weeks there has ever been. This included Burberry allowing us to buy straight from the SS11 catwalk – extremely cool. Live streaming runway shows has become a really popular trend, offering us a real-time chance to be a part of the fun – here’s hoping that by next year, it will almost be standard for all shows! Gucci rocked it this year with their uber-interactive E-vent, but Bottega Veneta took a more exclusive approach by only inviting big spenders and people who couldn’t make the actual event – not sure how much of a fan I am of the exclusivity, but hey – it is still a step forward.

My personal London Fashion Week highlight was without a doubt French-born wigmaker (yes, another one of Gaga’s) Charlie Le Mindu‘s fringe show – probably due to the naked models. Hot.


On the fashion mag scene, the prize for hottest cover has to go to Vogue Paris ‘ 90th anniversary October issue. Hello Lara Stone. Hello epic celebratory editorials shot by Mario Sorrenti, David Sims, Terry Richardson, Steven Klein and Hedi Slimane tracking the last ninety years of the magazine. Grab a copy if you can!

Heading over to the other side of the fashion world, Vogue Hommes Japan has just released a digital version of their magazine which looks incredible. They even collaborated with Dior Homme on a SUPER SEXY digital spread. You can preview it here.

For a bit of light-hearted fashion in advance of Milan Fashion Week that just kicked off – here is the latest set of artwork by the very cool aleXsandro Palombo featuring the three big Vogue Editors, Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld and Alexandra Shulman. Happy Friday!
