♥ Kate Moss requested specifically that she could close the show at Louis Vuitton. The model, who practically walks in no shows nowadays asked MJ if she could walk in his show- securing his status as one of the decades most respected designers, like, ever. He said : "Well, you know, Kate is such a dear friend. And she asked to do the show. So why not?" (that wasn't just casual conversation between me and Marc Jacobs- quoted from the Grazia website unfortunately!)

♥ 'Ice Woman' Anna Wintour has steered US Vogue right to the top for many years now, and at the Ad Age awards, US Vogue was named "Magazine of The Year" beating prestigious titles like Vanity Fair and The Economist. Who said you had to be nice to do well? And in other Anna news, when asked about the Kanye West collection she retorted "ask someone else." Speaks louder than a scathing online review any day: that's gotta hurt.
♥ With 'Mary Queen of Frocks' returning to our screens this week, her promoting a new fashion range to dress "women, not girls", fashion seems to have taken a new direction. Think fashion's ageist? Well, you're right, but just now change is in the air. The Guardian's fabulous fashion site now has a new blogger for older women and the piece is very interesting (read it here). It coincides with the sudden surge of interest in the iconic Iris Apfel and her outlandish, and fantastic, sense of style. She proclaims that she is the "oldest living teenager", and she lives by Diana Vreeland's iconic words "bad taste is better than no taste". This fascination with the older generation is sure to catch on- and why not? They have so much wisdom and have actually LIVED which makes them about a million times more interesting than an Eastern-European pre-teen model, non?

|The impeccable Kate|
♥ With fashion gossips tweeting and blogging about the widely-anticipated next move of the Duchess of Cambridge, many are now speculating that Anna Wintour may have managed to lure her to pose for a Vogue cover. It's no secret that Kate is adored in the US, and a Testino should would be quite delectable. However, The Queen is said to be unamused with the rumours: too close to Diana for comfort? What do you think? Does the Duchess have what it takes for US Vogue? Mmm...
