The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Meet the Models from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2012 Show, CFDA Rejects Milan Fashion Week Proposal, and DJ Kiss and DJ M.O.S. Go Shopping for H&M

The Cut has the scoop on the eight South Asian models that walked in the unusually diverse Chanel pre-fall 2012 show.

Among those featured was Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik, who also posed for Jason Wu‘s pre-fall 2012 collection, as was Lakshmi Menon who said casting for the show “was all such a secret that I only realized there were other Indian girls when I was backstage on the day of the show! It was so wonderful to see so many beautiful women from this part of the world.” So are we! But I don’t think anyone is holding their breathe to see if these sorts of demographics are represented in future Chanel shows. It was fun while it lasted! (The Cut)

• If you live in a New York City apartment, and were thinking of getting a subscription to Vogue‘s newly launched archive site, how does not paying your rent for a month sound? Access to the digitized library of every Vogue issue since its 1892 is a whopping $1,575 for a year’s subscription! (Racked)

• The CFDA has officially rejected the proposal made by the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana people to shorten New York Fashion Week by a day to make time in the schedule for London’s men’s shows. This comes as no surprise since designers like Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren always show on the last day of NYFW. And really, to suggest cutting women’s shows to accommodate menswear is a little absurd. (Styleite)

• The best cure for a Sunday morning hangover is a little Anna Wintour. The 69th most influential woman in the world will appear on CBS Sunday Morning alongside the inimitable Hamish Bowles this weekend, to discuss the pricey new Vogue archive, as well as the magazine’s 120-year history. Should be interesting if you’re willing to get up early. (WWD)

DJ Kiss and husband DJ M.O.S. are too adorable to handle in this H&M Life video. Follow the couple around SoHo as they do a little holiday shopping for each other. All I can say is, they have great taste!
