The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Kim Kardashian (Sorta) Reveals Baby North West, Alexander Wang to Have A Mother of A Sample Sale, and Eva Chen Talks Her Relationship With Anna Wintour


• Kim Kardashian has finally come out of hiding (and not a moment too soon) with baby North West! She and Kanye were spotted at a Los Angeles hospital with a car seat (carried by a dutiful assistant, natch). Of course, the contraption was covered, but I think it’s safe to assume North is in there. I patiently await the moment I can see her fat little baby legs, teeny toes, and plump cheeks! Check out all the photos at TMZ. (TMZ)

The actress appears in the monthly in a $1,200 black feathered hat by Ellen Christine Couture, which some seem to think looks a lot like the Philip Treacy mohawk creation she wore to the Gala. So, was the shot (that made the mag’s subscriber cover) a nod to SJP’s famed topper? According to Harper’s Bazaar, it isn’t! “We love a headpiece,” executive editor Laura Brown told WWD. “Sarah Jessica joins Gwen Stefani [last September], Kate Hudson [October] and Gwyneth Paltrow [May], all cool cats in hats on our cover in the last year.” (WWD)


Eva Chen‘s first issue as editor-in-chief of Lucky has already hit newsstands, and has been praised for its elevated look and feel. Although Chen might have used Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, the same stylist for her inaugural issue as Anna Wintour did for her first turn at Vogue, she makes it clear in today’s New York Times profile that she has no plans to turn Lucky into another iteration of the fashion bible. “She does recognize that Lucky is very different from Vogue. She trusts my taste and understands my audience is different from hers.” (NYT)

• You would think the folks at Alexander Wang might want to take a breather after that epic, somewhat violent giveaway they held last month. Nope! The design house is following up with an epic sample sale next week, that is already making heads spin. From Tuesday, August 20th to Saturday, August 24th pieces from his resort 2012, fall 2012, and pre-fall 2013 collections will go on sale. The deals promise to be sweet: all accessories will be 60% off, ready-to-wear 70%, and T items will be marked down 75%. Just when my wallet was recovering from a J.Crew binge! Anyone planning on checking out the sale? (Fashionista)
