Kate Moss Can Go Commando All The Time

  • How come Kate Moss has no visible vagina in sculptural form? Just sayin'. [Vogue UK]
  • TopShop chief Sir Philip Green is our improbable crush of the day, for responding to naysayers' accusations that his company is "in crisis" thusly: "If it's being said that I'm in crisis then let's think what that means....Foot and mouth - now that's what I'd call a crisis - and I haven't got that." [Vogue UK]
  • Roberto Cavalli: an egotist with a heart of gold. On designing for H&M: "The young stop me all over the world in the street and say 'Oh, Roberto, you're my idol.' I said ok to H&M so that youngsters could have the chance to wear Cavalli..." [Vogue UK]
  • "American Eagle Outfitters Inc. wants to do more than simply sell clothes, and has determined that one way to do so is by producing original entertainment content.": Um, if we may? Simply sell clothes. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • Dresses: People still wanna wear 'em. We stand by our reason for being partial to the dress: Laziness. One item, over the head, all done. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • Other retailers doing poorly: Gap stock fell to its lowest price in over 4 years. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • So we think someone needs to tell Gap's founding owners that maybe they shouldn't be off buying art right now. [NYT]
  • Steve Madden sales have plummeted and it's a mad dash to sell off shares. A theory: flats = bad for the economy. They don't need constant re-heeling and they're comfortable enough that you're not constantly searching for that "perfect pair" that doesn't exist, trust us we've looked. [Reuters]
