>> Time for July 2008 Vogue Italia editorial roll call. Cover shots? Check. Naomi Campbell in all her glory? Check. Sessilee Lopez's black-and-white sizzler? Check. The multi-girl extravaganza? Check.
It's the beginning of the end folks — all that's left is the set featuring Toccara Jones, Yasmin's elegant grouping, and the beauty editorial with Chanel Iman channeling Grace Jones. Oh wait, we've already got the latter — Chanel edgier than ever before, shot by Dusan Reljin.
>> A little show of skin here, a little handbag there . . . that's what Versace's Fall 2008 ads are made of. Shot in Manhattan by Mario Testino, the images portray Natalia Vodianova and Isabeli Fontana flaunting color-coordinating outfits . . . that is, when they're wearing clothes. The set is pretty typical glossy Versace, but I do like the up-close-and-personal handbag shots.
>> If you missed the live feed of the Gucci Resort 2009 presentation earlier today, fret no more: it's waiting for you to watch below. The video starts out with a little backstage coverage — Mariacarla Boscono sneaking a cig while her hair is curled, Iekeliene Stange iPoding it up — and then, when it hits 2:48, the good stuff. Natasha Poly opens, Lily Donaldson closes, and for all you Snejana Onopka fans who were fretting after couture . . . she's back!

>> THE MODELIZER —Are Kate Moss and Jamie Hince on the outs? Supposedly, after a row on Saturday, Jamie has been moving his things out of Kate's house. But more funny than anything about this article . . . Kate apparently skipped Jamie's show that night and saw High School Musical instead. Can you imagine? [The Mirror]
If only because it's about one hundred degrees and our heads are spinning at the prospect of not being half-naked. We've spent the majority of our day sweating it out internet cafe-style for the sake of wanting to live in the real world for a day, instead of looking at the cement walls that are undoubtedly the 'architectural highlight' of our Brooklyn office. It's nearing three in the afternoon and the only thing we can think about, to be honest, is online shopping and hair. Fall hair. Giorgio Armani's haute couture show is staying on our front page for the rest of the day, not only because of the clothing (which is surely reason enough), but because of that gorgeous hair. We know a lot of women are going short these days, that eponymous YSL Fall 08 haircut having convinced a lot of us that short is chic, and now it seems the updo's are moving in that direction as well. What can a perfect bob do aside from being its perfect self? It can go asymmetrical. That's right ladies, no need to haul that straight iron in your purse any longer. The tricks to this style, as far as we can tell, involve squeeky clean hair, a curling iron (or hot rollers), a paddle brush, some bobby pins, and a little bit of hairspray. Once we manage to cool down, we're going to try it out, and if you should be interested in doing the same, the goods are below.
