MCM tapped gender-bending model Andrej Pejic to front their spring 2014 “Flower Boys in Paradise” campaign. MCM owner Sung-Joo Kim explains the theme behind this years ads: “The concept of genderless is key not only for this season’s campaign but also in terms of where we want to take the brand in the future as we move away from traditional targets and evolve into a brand representing a true new school of luxury suggesting a new alternative in future lifestyles.”   (WWD)


Andre Leon Talley

• Leaving Oscar de la Renta‘s Fall 2014 show yesterday proved to be a feat for 11 editors, including André Leon Talley, who got stuck in the elevator at the venue (11 West 42nd Street) on their way out. According to the Telegraph‘s Sophie De Rosee, ALT did not take the inconvenience lying down. Apparently, the Numéro Russia editor was absolutely livvid about the situation, demanding on several occasions to speak to someone from de la Renta’s team. Firemen and paramedics made it to the scene 50 minutes, but not before Talley vowed to never attend another show in the building. Read the blow by blow at the Telegraph. (Telegraph)


harrods london

• London’s iconic Harrods store might soon be making its stateside debut. According to Ahmad Al-Sayed, CEO of Harrods’s parent company Qatar Investment Authority, and chairman of the store’s executive board, Harrods is in the process of expansion, setting their sights on locations in New York and “other prime cities” to open up new stores. (WWD)


• New York Fashion Week wouldn’t be complete without the antics of PETA. The animal rights fanatics staged a protest outside Lincoln Center yesterday with a troupe of cat mask-clad interperative dancers, dressed in black, save for one woman sporting red jeans and a printed (faux?) fur coat. What was it all for? Let PETA campaign specialist Ashley Byrne explain: “This is another way to get people to think about the cruelty of the fur industry by making them think, ‘how would I feel if I was killed for my coat?’, she said. “I think when someone pictures the terrifying experience of being attacked and beaten, all because someone wants the coat off your back, they begin to understand what the animals who are killed for fur are going through.” (Gothamist)

Grace Coddington seen inside the NBC Studio in New York City

• Sounds like the folks over at Vogue are keeping pretty mum about this rumored Kim Kardashian cover. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Grace Coddington to talk NYFW, when a reporter sprung the question of Kimmy’s shoot. “Gosh, I don’t know. What can I say?” she said. “I don’t do covers anyway, so I wouldn’t know what they have picked out.” Something tells me she knows whether or not Kim made it to the cover, but I imagine she’s not at liberty to give out such information. We’ll just have to wait! (THR)


Bethann Hardison, Kibwe Chase-Marshall, and Jason Campbell chat with ARISE about diversity in fashion.

    With Kanye being friends with Anna…it was only a matter of time before Kim would be on the cover. Should we be surprised? I think not.

  2. KBS says:

    So we’re begging for covers now? Gateorade can’t even quinch that thirst!

  3. entrefashionista says:

    GIVE IT UP KIM!!!Who cares????? Some of it is political but it’s also about who they think will sell covers. Kim is a gorgeous girl but that family’s light is fading fast. The show is near cancellation and the lines they endorse aren’t selling anymore either. The average “Vogue woman” really doesn’t give a damn about them.

  4. Anon says:

    lol @ KBS!

  5. Tee says:

    Righttttt @KBS they are desert thirsty!

  6. pier says:

    I have a feeling Kim will show up on the cover..SMH…with all the begging as @KBS say….lol

  7. k says:

    ok LOL @ the Leon Talley situation. That’s so unfortunate. On to Kim and those rags they are selling. I was in Sears over the weekend and I really can’t believe they are selling such poor quality clothes, especially with the threads they rock on the daily. It’s like they are feeding their fans crumbs from under the table.

  8. S says:

    Regarding Andre Leon Talley….dude it’s not like anybody planned for the elevator to break. What could the designer do? There so much I could say, but I’ll just chuckle in private.

    As far as Kim K. goes, mums the word because they all know girlfriend is going to be on that cover. Kanye’s lobbying has paid off I’d be willing to bet. He wants her to be revered so badly, but unfortunately a Vogue cover still won’t do that for her.

  9. yonaton says:

    the fact that everyone comments about kim being on vogue rather than the fashion discussion below shows her relevance. kanye said it best. to love and hate are similar emotions, to not care is when i should be worried.

    now back to the discussion. i love it and wish this could have been made more into a separate post that speaks with several individuals in the field. i also think there should be more posts on how one can break into the various fields of fashion. media, casting, modeling, etc.

    another cool idea would be to start doing fashion houses history. many people see the fashions, but do not get a chance to learn the history behind the items.

  10. Lela says:

    @Yonaton you are so right. I scrolled through every comment and none spoke of the fashion discussion. I do agree that the diversity in fashion video should have had its separate post because this is an ongoing discussion. I come to this site a lot and appreciate the diversity discussions when they are posted and I also appreciate the comments and concerns each person includes in the comment section.

    I will say this though, we will never get anywhere if we don’t support each other. We can talk about diversity and no one wanting to incorporate black people when we can’t even help ourselves. We say we want more fashion magazines targeted towards black women, but no one wants to support the effort. We say we want to see more color on the runway, but no one is boycotting the shows nor are they deciding to not purchase their goods.

    If we want to see effective change we have to be willing to take the risk and change. We have to support one another. If that starts with creating our own magazines, fashion funds, management, and whatever else is needed to include ourselves then that is what we need to do.

  11. LiLiJb says:

    @Lela Thank, thank you! The fashion panel was the most important and interesting portion of the this post.

  12. hahahaha says:

    If Kim K was going to be on the cover, it should be cancelled after that suede pants stint she pulled this week. No talent and whatever fashion sense she had left when Kanye took over her closet. However, i’m sure the letters to the editor would be hilarious.

  13. Anonymous says:

    everytime i see ALT seated with his legs spread wide like that i cant help but picture his balls sweeping the floor under his clothes

  14. I lived for the panel discussion. This kind of dialogue needs to be the norm so that the most effective change can be put into place.

  15. Aisha says:

    I feel like the whole hype of it all, kim being on the cover, is enough to sell the cover right there. Like I really don’t like Kim in a fashion sense, and putting her on the cover after all of this hoopla, “is she or isn’t she” is all for sales at this point.

  16. chanti says:

    The discussion between Bethann Hardison, Kibwe Chase-Marshall, and Jason Campbell really shows the lack of unity even within the ‘community’. The standards for what is acceptable and offensive are misconstrued in 2014? Is she really justifying ‘separate but equal” !!??
