• Julissa Bermudez walked the runway for Betsey Johnson on Monday, slipping off her textured leopard-printed jacket with the greatest of ease. Work, Juju!
• Talk about the ill high street collaboration! Yesterday, J.Crew showed their Fall 2012 collection, which included footwear by none other than Manolo Blahnik. The two iconic brands will bring a range of simple pointy-toe pumps in a variety of colors and patterns (41 in all) to the masses next season, with prices starting at $595 and going up to $645, which is only slightly cheaper than a pair of mainline Manolos. Ready your credit cards, ladies! (WWD)
• Viola Davis was spotted front row at Vera Wang‘s Fall 2012 show seated next to Anna Wintour, which I wager is a welcome alternative to last season’s most buzzed about coupling with Nicki Minaj. Seated to Ms. Davis’s right were her husband, Julius Tennon and our beloved André Leon Talley. It has happened on quite a few occasions that Ms. Wintour’s Fashion Week front row neighbors have gone on become Vouge covergirls. Does this mean that Viola Davis could be featured on the cover of a future issue of US Vouge? I hope so. If you remember, Nicki Minaj’s people are also hoping to snag a cover of the fashion bible as well. Dare we hope for two black covergirls in one year? (The Cut)
