• In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Marquita Pring says she sometimes has to pad herself to look larger for certain clients. “Every client is different. You get a wide range. Some people like you much smaller, size 10, size 8. Some people would prefer a 14 or 16. So for me, I’m right in the middle at a sort of small 14, high 12. So I pad sometimes since I’ve got clients who would prefer a solid 14 or 16. [The pads] make you seem all around wider. I mean, from the side you look kind of weird – and it feels weird. Like every now and then my arm gets caught on it and I’m like, wait, this isn’t me. But it’s better for me because I can still be healthy and work out and have the body I want. It’s a little bit of model magic.” Who knew? (Jezebel)
• It is a sad day for Sicilian mobsters at the Ucciardone prison. Inmates are no longer allowed to wear suits by Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Prada, Armani, or Valentino, in attempts to “cut down” on the mafia image. One mob wife says “My husband will be naked as a worm. It is only clothes, not to show off but because they last longer, are better quality.” How will these mobsters clothe themselves if not in the finest silks? Injustice at its height. (Racked)
• Looks like Miu Miu wasn’t the only house inspired by film noir for the fall season. Emporio Armani‘s fall ad campaign channels the genre, bringing it to life in this gritty, rather ominous new video. Check it out. (Stylefile)
