>> THE MODELIZER —Agyness Deyn has gone chameleonic before, changing the color of her signature crop during fashion weeks, but now she's gone bolder, with a new haircut that features short, blunt bangs and an asymmetrical finish. This will be the test, to see whether her modeling career depends on her hair, or her as a whole package. [Daily Mail]

>> The September 2008 issue of Vanity Fair may not have given us the supermodel cover we were hoping for, but in exchange, it does give us the annual International Best-Dressed List. The fashion industry was well-repped, with designers (Karl Lagerfeld, Stacey Bendet), models (Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Christy Turlington), editors (Carine Roitfeld, Alexandra Kotur), and even a muse or two (Tilda Swinton, Iris Apfel, Fran Lebowitz) all making the cut.
Alexandra Kotur, Vogue style director, "Because [she's a] Kotur de force."
Carine Roitfeld, "Because she's the rogue editor-in-chief."
Carla Bruni-Sarkozy "Because we like her French twist."
Christy Turlington, "Because she put the chic in sirshasana."
Fran Lebowitz, 2008 Hall of Fame inductee.
Iris Apfel, "Because she's the Apfel of our eye."
Karl Lagerfeld, "Because the Kaiser is wiser."
Katherine Ross, Senior VP, communications, for LVMH North America, "Because she turns the heat on in Vuitton."
Lapo Elkann, "Because he's in the Lapo of luxury."
Stacey Bendet, "Because she's Ms. Fancy-Pants."
Tilda Swinton, "Because she's a great Scot."
Whoa there, three-hundred-and-twenty-eight dollar hammer pants. We love you. We love you because you sold out all summer from the various designers that decided to make you and now, in the wee hours of fall, you've delivered from a designer we trust and at a price we can afford. We promise we will try not to cheat on you.
These slouchy brushed twill trousers will probably sell out in a week or two, unless, because it's Shopbop, they miraculously sit there for a month. But seriously, we're guessing fashionistas worldwide have caught onto this trend by now. Judging by the fit on the model, these trousers run big. She is probably wearing a zero but, even though they are meant to billow, they still look kind of gigantic on her (the waist should be tighter, no?). So, ladies, that means if you wear a size 26 jean (and not a 24) you should probably still by the size zero, and so on. Oh, just when we thought we were going to die from fashion-starvation, we find these goodies. Looks like we'll survive August after all.
