Last month, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show taping was big news for those of us who don't really pay attention to other kinds of news, like about what's happening in the world with money and elected leaders and stuff. But the "fun" is not over yet. Oh no. Ahead of the television premiere of the runway show, which is slated to air on CBS next Tuesday, December 10, the lingerie brand has released a fun and flirty promotional lip sync video. Yeah gurrrl. So cool.

The clip features some of my favorite Angelz (Lindsay 'Boo' Ellingson, Alessandra 'Ayyy' Ambrosio, Candice 'One-Eyed' Swanepoel, Adriana 'Happy Hour' Lima, Lily 'McMansion' Aldridge, Doutzen 'Can't Believe It's Not Butter!' Kroes and Behati 'Totally' Prinsloo) fake-singing the megabegawegaleggoofmyeggo hit, "I Knew You Were Trouble," by Taylor 'I'm Trouble, Too' Swift. (The pop star performed at the show.) They really get into it. It's pretty great. I love that song. Trouble trouble trouble.

Montreal Fashion Week Cancels Winter Soiree

That’s right guys, after the fall edition was cancelled in September, organizers have now gone and pulled the plug on the February edition of Montreal Fashion Week.

Why, you may wonder? “The decision to not go ahead with the production of February’s MFW was difficult to make, but we know we need to dedicate our efforts to completing this massive rallying project,” said producer Jean-Francois Daviau of Sensation Mode. “This break will allow us to join forces and make this large-scale event successful and more appealing to the general public, industry professionals and our partners.”

They will instead be investing resources towards merging Montreal Fashion Week with the city’s annual summer Fashion and Design Festival, which is also organized by Montreal-based Groupe Sensation Mode and held each August in downtown Montreal. It generally includes fashion shows, live art installations and musical performances, with the most recent edition featured famed French designer and artist as honorary chair.

Nonetheless, the semi-annual showcase of Quebec designers at Montreal Fashion Week has been pivotal in the past for connecting buyers and media with new Canadian talent. After 25 editions, it seems a shame to see it go, but the newly merged Fashion and Design Festival and Montreal Fashion Week event is already scheduled to take place from Aug. 20-23. Programming for the showcase will be announced in March.

"We thought that it was very important to make (the summer event) happen well," Groupe Sensation Mode co-founder Chantal Durivage said Thursday. "Three productions a year with big events, it's a lot of time. We're always running. And if we want to develop, we need time. And this is what we realized."

Honestly, I can see where they’re coming from in amalgamating these events. They are incredibly costly and, in all honesty, seem a little too frequent to draw any significant buzz or net a large audience. Quality over quantity should reign every time, which could also support the ongoing argument of merging Canada’s two marquee fashion events in Montreal and Toronto, that is World MasterCard Fashion week. Like go big or go home, right?

Is Abbey Lee Kershaw Set for a Proper Comeback?

abbey-lee-kershaw-by-hedi-slimane-for-25-magazine-06

Abbey Lee Kershaw went on a modeling hiatus to focus on her acting, landing her debut role in the Mad Max: Fury Road remake, also starring Charlize Theron and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. But, unlike fellow model-turned-actress Gemma Ward, she hasn’t totally thrown in the towel on her modeling career.

Kershaw is now the very naked focus of Hedi Slimane’s lens for the latest issue of 25 magazine. Wearing a messy brunette bob and little else, she shows off her truly insane body while posing amidst bed sheets, music instruments and the great outdoors (see the whole spread here). The black and white photos are beautifully grainy and don’t look at all forced. Probably also helps that Kershaw has no qualms about taking her clothes off — before her “comeback campaign” for Gucci’s Fall 2013 ads, the last time she made headlines was at the Met Gala when she lifted her sheer Rag & Bone dress to reveal "GUN CONTROL" Sharpied across her torso. And you probably remember the wildly NSFW music video for her Brooklyn-based band Our Mountain’s single “IV Horses” that was momentarily removed from YouTube.

The Met Gala brouhaha is also touched upon in an interview for i-D magazine’s recently relaunched website. Her favourite reaction to the ‘Gun Control’ statement was “she’s a stupid slut who was just looking for an excuse to take her clothes off,” concluding that they were spot on. Take that, haters. She also compares filming Mad Max to falling in love, and reveals that her dream role would have been Lisa Rowe in Girl Interrupted (with her blonde hair and default sleep-deprived chic beauty look, we can see this working).

Though she hopes to see herself in more movies than fashion campaigns, hopeful forum commenters make a valid point that a comeback could be in the works. Fellow Australian Catherine McNeil is back and better than ever after keeping a low profile for a few years. And Abbey Lee recently parted ways with the mother agency she’d had since 2005 to be locally managed by her father Kim Kershaw (she’s with NEXT overseas). Either way, we just hope she doesn’t let those ruthlessly Photoshopped Jill Stuart beauty ads be one of her final fashion legacies.

John Galliano Wins the Right to Have His Case Against Dior Heard in Labor Court

John Galliano has won the right to have his case against Dior heard in labor court.

The designer is suing his former employers (the companies Christian Dior SA and John Galliano SA) for €6 million, as compensation for his firing in March 2011.

The Paris Court of Appeals has rejected the companies' request to have the case heard in commercial court, arguing that the terms of Galliano's employment contract were complicated and unlike the more traditional employer-employee relationships seen at labor court. Essentially, this latest dispute comes down to a disagreement about whether Galliano operated as an independent contractor (which is what his former employers claim) or as a salaried employee (the designer's position) at Dior and his eponymous brand. 

The Paris court has ordered both companies to pay Galliano's court costs, as well as €2,500, for filing the appeal and pulling the designer into this latest legal tangle.

The Kate Moss Playboy Cover Has Arrived

Kate Moss for Playboy by Mert & Marcus

Here is the Playboy cover we have all (reportedly) been waiting for, starring supermodel Kate Moss photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for the publication's 60th Anniversary Issue for January/February 2014. I'm surprised it's taken so long for this precise photograph of Moss — styled in the iconic bunny ears, Photoshopped to high hell and superimposed over the Playboy logo — to come into existence. If I'd imagined a Kate Moss Playboy cover before today, it would have looked exactly like the one above … maybe not so dead-behind-the-eyes, but then I'm an optimist.
