Donatella Versace Is Looking For A Protege

  • Donatella Versace's on the prowl: "I am looking for The One to take over the Versace brand." How Carrie Bradshaw of her? Anyway, the front-runner right now seems to be English designer Christopher Kane: ""Christopher is my favorite designer. He and Tammy remind me so much of me and Gianni - brother and sister, working together." Paging Dr. Freud! [Vogue UK]
  • Model Yasmin Le Bon's tip for how to look beautiful in photographs: "Never shoot in the morning - your face just hasn't woken up properly yet!" Especially if you haven't blown all the coke residue out of your nose. [Vogue UK]
  • Kim Kardashian on her and her sisters' experience modeling during LA Fashion Week: "Everyone is starving themselves backstage and we are just eating Twix." Say what you will about this family's integrity, but the junk inside their trunks is for real. [Fashion Week Daily, 3rd item]
  • Rumor alert: Marc Jacobs might actually use models in the Louis Vuitton spring advertising campaign. Bet they won't be black! [WWD, 3rd item]
  • Tiffany is focusing on selling "accessibly-priced" (i.e. tween) jewelry. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • Ridiculous New York department store Henri Bendel is launching their debut accessories line. It plays off of their signature brown and white color scheme. And it is seriously fugly. [Fashion Week Daily]

  • If you see celebrity stylist/TV talking head Philip Bloch stumbling around Manhattan with a cane, rest assured: He is just fine. Though poor Barneys Creative Director Simon Doonan came across Bloch and convinced something was terribly wrong (you know, like, that Bloch had gone blind) when he passed him on the street the other day, turns out that Bloch is just going all Method acting-y and is preparing for a film role where he plays a blind man. And all the fuck we can think of this whole tale is: So Philip Bloch is an actor now? [NY Post]
