It’s the run up to London Fashion Week, so of course we’re getting excited to see some of our favourite designers exhibiting, and alongside that comes the prospect of discovering new and emerging talent. Central Saint Martins’ has churned out yet another gem in the form of 23-year-old London-based Wilson PK. He’s already trained with some of the finest, like Alexander Wang and Iris van Herpen, so he definitely knows a thing or two about fashion.

Plus, you kind of know that you’re about to make it big when pop star Lady Gaga takes a shine to your designs and lets the world know about it via social media. She opted for the red design (pictured above) from his first collection for Spring 2015 called (I’m) Purity, whilst on tour in South Korea. (more…)

As the cover reads, Anna Ewers is “Standing Strong” on the October issue of Vogue China, resembling a Hollywood screen siren from the 40s and 50s. Craig McDean shot the blond German bombshell with Rita Hayworth style waves cascading down the side of her face, while wearing a piece from Prada‘s Fall 2014 collection, styled by Alex White. What’s not to love?

Our forum members are more than satisfied with the cover. “Gorgeous! Lovely to see Anna on the cover, and shot by McDean, another surprise,” wrote Miss Dalloway, clearly in favor of what Vogue China offers us this month.
“This is a very captivating cover. Anna looks amazing. That Prada coat, which I dislike looks amazing. Seems like Vogue China has found another regular photographer and can finally retire Mario Testino,” noted TaylorBinque.
“Awesome cover! Wow, she really is everywhere, but in her case, that’s a good thing!” posted justaguy.
Forum member burbuja8910 has also noticed the Anna surge (whose most recent cover was for the August 2014 issue of Vogue Paris): “Striking cover, Anna is making it big.”
“She’s on fire and this is absolutely amazing,” complimented a satisfied Avogadro.
“I love it so much! The color palette is perfect,” declared gazebo.
I’m also loving Anna here, and look forward to seeing what the issue has to offer. You can await the contents inside the thread, but in the meantime, feel free to join the discussion here.

After chowing down on cauliflower at the epic NOBLE by William Rast Spring 2015 presentation and dinner, we headed a couple blocks over to party it up with a smattering of models, editors and assorted fashion folk at the Versus Versace Spring 2015 after-party.
The affair took place at Metropolitan West in a space where it was hard to see, mainly because the space was illumined within an inch of its life with electric blue disco lights. Typical club fare, though. But through the cyan haze, we were able to spot Constance Jablonski deep in conversation. Donatella Versace made an appearance at the event earlier, but was gone by the time we arrived on the scene.
Possibly the most exciting part of the night was when Rihanna, who was present at the runway show, showed up to the party (fashionably late, naturally), but blink and you missed her. We were able to chat with a young man in a beautiful, pearl-beaded Balmain jacket who entered with the singer, though.
Of course, we had to inquire about RiRi’s whereabouts. “She just left,” the fellow said, not 10 minutes after she arrived. Understandable, considering by the time she got there, the place had drastically cleared out. An open room is no place for an international superstar, after all.
Showing off her newly dyed tresses, Karlie Kloss wows our forum members on the latest cover of Vogue Netherlands. The statuesque American beauty fronts the magazine’s October 2014 issue, photographed by Alique. In the stunning close-up cover image, Karlie dons a navy turtleneck sweater from Louis Vuitton as her hair is blown backward, giving the shot an energetic, athletic feel with a hint of supermodel — and we’re loving it!

Members of our forums are head over heels for Vogue Netherlands’ October cover. “What a great cover, Karlie dazzles amazingly! She looks very cool and beautiful and this cover shot does her justice. Way to go Vogue Netherlands. Her skin and hair look sensational, this cover deserves an 8/10,” raved Bertrando3.
“Best Vogue Netherlands cover EVER, like by a landslide. Should have been the September cover. Karlie looks awesome here,” wrote HeatherAnne.
MyNameIs shared the same sentiments and commented, “This is really beautiful. Just when I thought VNL was done, they’ve managed to surprise me. Easily their best cover (thought that’s not saying much). Karlie looks gorgeous.”
“Absolutely glorious. It’s right up there with Lara‘s [Stone] first VN cover; definitely one of the best,” added Nepenthes.
“Striking cover, I love how dark it is, and just her face standing out,” enthused a satisfied Miss Dalloway.
Proclaiming that this was Karlie’s best cover throughout her impressive career, khyrk gushed, “Wow, both Karlie’s and Vogue Netherlands’ best cover to date!”

Of all the models who walked in Diane von Furstenberg‘s Spring 2015 show yesterday, all eyes were on no last name McGee, aka “Kendall” (Jenner), who made her Spring 2015 debut yesterday on the CFDA president’s runway.
The reality star-cum-model turned down the catwalk in a black and white checked mini dress with white lace overlay. Her chocolate brown locks blew behind her as she stomped in matching black checked high-heeled sandals.
But as everyone made a fuss about Kendall’s appearance, Naomi Campbell, who closed the show, was all like, “Whateva, whateva, I’m ending this thing in the way only a legendary supermodel can.”
The show itself included a smattering of big-ticket models as well as buzzy new up-and-comers. Lily Donaldson, Isabeli Fontana, Malaika Firth, Candice Swanepoel and Binx Walton were among the esteemed members of the model set privileged enough to walk the runway with Ms. Jenner.
Proud mama Kris Jenner Instagrammed an image of her daughter in the show: “So beautiful today @kendalljenner walking in the Diane Von Furstenberg SS15 show,” she captioned the image.
What can we say? Kendall does look pret-tay good in DVF.
