Vogue Hellas, aka Greece, and Vogue Portugal made a serious boo boo this month by using the same photo for their covers. Different editions of Vogue Magazine usually share photos. It is something that is pretty common, but I don’t recall them ever sharing the cover at the same time. What makes this even worse, is the fact that this photo was in the June/July issue of Vogue Paris. Confused yet? I wonder what went down when the snafu was found out. That had to be an incredibly tense and awkward moment, and can you imagine the phone call between the two editors? I would love to be a fly on the wall, wouldn’t you? Photo from Fashionista.com.

What could be more expensive and more unnecessary than $400 Jimmy Choo for Hunter faux crocodile rainboots?
Jimmy Choo embellished Uggs.
Tamara Mellon told WWD, “Ugg Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe,” so naturally, she’d team up with Ugg to design a limited edition collection of five different sheepskin boots with classic Jimmy Choo design details. Though you’ll have to wait until next October to slip your feet into a pair of studded, grommeted, crystallized winter boots.
And when you do, they’ll set you back anywhere from $595 to $795.
One of the running news/gossip threads running through all of 2009 was when and where Marc and Lorenzo would finally tie the knot.
Would it happen in Provincetown? Turns out, no. Then rumors circulated about Brazilian nuptials. Now Guest of a Guest is reporting that the couple said “I do” while vacationing in St. Barths.
As if we weren’t already jealous seeing pictures of the gorgeous pair having a blast on the beach with their Louis bags and towels, their wedding cake (with replicas of Marc’s tattoos) and party pics look even more fun.
We know Rachel and Rodger were in town, so we’re assuming they attended the fete, complete with a dinner thrown by gallerist Larry Gagosian. We can’t wait to see the rest of the elite guest list.
Congrats to the newlyweds!!
UPDATE: According to The Cut,They are still engaged.
Rachel McAdams is on the January 2010 cover of Vogue. I really like the hair and makeup and Prada outfit. It reminds me of the classic pin-up look, but they brightened up her face too much. It looks like there is a glare on her face. I was really hoping for something different for the new year *cough cover with actual models cough*, but I see nothing has changed.

WWD’s “Rodarte a ‘GO’ With Target’ headline made us fall out of bed with shock.
Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the Pasadena based sisters who took home this year’s CFDA award for womenswear, have designed a 55-piece holiday collection for Target’s GO International (not Designer Collaborations like McQueen).
The clothes launch December 20th and range from $9.99 to $79.99 instead of Rodarte’s usual $3000 to $21000 and Target’s spokesman says the key to maintaining that Rodarte feel is layering.
Rodarte’s clothes are the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in person – seriously, they belong in a museum alongside great works of art – but maybe 1% of America’s heard their name which we imagine makes it hard to turn a major profit which in turn makes the PR they’ll get from Target pretty brilliant.
We don’t expect the clothes to look anything like Rodarte’s past collections. We do, however, expect them to be well thought out and whimsical.
Maybe if we buy Rodarte for Target clothes we can justify Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte boots?
When we read about the following, we didn’t believe it either:
Because of a major lawsuit filed against major department stores in California in 2003 (it seems some of the big name stores were purposely holding back inventory to up the price of high end beauty products), everybody is getting paid back in a major way next week.
Starting January 20th, major stores like Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s are being forced to give away $175 million worth of beauty products nationwide, for free, to anybody who walks into their stores.
Shoppers only get one item per cosmetic company, while supplies last – Think Chanel, Estee Lauder, L’Oreal, etc.

I just found out, on the Wall Street Journal, that Monique Lhuilier and Naeem Khan have opted out of presenting runway shows for New York Fashion Week. The recession has everybody on a choke hold right now. Within the past few weeks, it has been reported that Vera Wang, Betsey Johnson, Temperley London, Carmen Marc Valvo and other designers are holding presentations in their stores , smaller venues, or are totally trying to figure out a way to revamp their presentations into something more economic for their companies. According to Fashionista.com, Men’s Vogue is folding, kind of folding, or revamping/downsizing. Last but not least is the news that Chanel, the epitome of luxury and chicness, laid off 200 workers. By the time I get my masters there won’t be any fashion jobs left.
