Since cycle 15 of America's Next Top Model premieres tonight, we were invited to an "intimate champagne breakfast" this morning with Tyra Banks and André Leon Talley. The event was kind of like speed-dating. But with smizing!
The focus of the press conference masquerading as a social outing was how very high fashion the new season will be. The winner lands the cover of Vogue Italia and a contract with IMG; guests include Diane von Furstenberg, Patrick Demarchelier, Karolina Kurkova and Italian Vogue's editor in chief, Franca Sozzani. (Why yes, she did just publish an oil-spill inspired spread! But she was also responsible for the all-black issue.)
