The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Liya Kebede Covers Numéro China #12, Prada’s Trippy Fashion Film, and Jil Sander Also Hates Leggings

• Instead of actually wearing the dress, Liya Kebede holds it up against her for the cover of Numéro China’s October 2011 issue. But since that cinched waist could only fit a five-year-old, it’s probably better she didn’t try to squeeze into it. (Beauty is Diverse)

• Unfortunately, the mesh crochet look seems to be trending for spring, and Loeffler Randall and Suno‘s macramé shoe collaboration will not be left out. While I would usually just ask, I’m stamping a “Hmm...” on these joints. Still… would you wear them? (Racked)

• While it is unclear which fantasies they’re portraying (and what exactly is going on), Prada‘s fashion film “Real Fantasies” is quite cool indeed. Check it out! (StyleCaster)

Time Magazine profiles Franca Sozzani, EIC of Italian Vogue. They say, “These days, the magazine’s niche readership — high-end fashionistas and arty intellectuals — gives Sozzani the freedom to experiment. She uses that power for good. “Franca sees the bigger picture. She always has done,” says Anna Wintour, Sozzani’s legendary counterpart in the U.S. “She completely and utterly understands that Vogue is about much more than editing a magazine every month, but that it has to play a vital part in setting the agenda for the fashion industry.” (Time)

• Added to the growing list of fashion insiders who don’t like to be comfortable is Jil Sander, who is open about her abhorrence for leggings. She says, “If I had the power, I would ban leggings.” Fortunately, she has no such authority. (Stylelist)
