The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Vogue Paris to Start Publishing in English, Carine Roitfeld’s New Magazine Revealed, and Mattel’s Katniss Everdeen Barbie Doll

Vogue Paris announced via twitter that they will be publishing in English. No word on if the magazine will publish exclusively in English, (a move I doubt the French will stand for).(TFS)

• Speaking of Paris Vogue, WWD has the deets on Carine Roitfeld‘s new magazine, which will be called C.R.  The former Vogue Paris editor quipped, “The name’s not a big surprise, but oh well.” The magazine will be published twice a year, and is expected to sell at $9.95 with about 100 pages of advertising. Roitfeld says C.R. will be a “celebration of fashion and creativity,” with every issue being built around a theme like music or film, or one of her “obsessions.” The magazine will be in English, but Roitfeld also plans to publish articles written by non-english speakers in the native tongue of the writer, with a translation towards the end of each issue. C.R. is expected to hit newsstands this September. (WWD)

Thakoon has teamed up with Nars for a limited-edition nail polish collection. The six-shade range is inspired by the colors seen at the Indian spice market, and will retail for $18. Find them in stores May 1st. Think you’ll be picking up any of these shades? (Fashion Etc)


• This weekend, Heidi Klum officially filed for divorce from Seal, her husband of seven years. Sad news indeed. (The Cut)
