Hello-hello, is everyone just crazy-busy these days?
It seems more and more of us are absolutely frenzied with work/family/school/volunteer/you-name-it obligations. Several friends in the blogosphere are so inundated they are taking time away from their blogs, a wise move on their parts and one we have contemplated as well. All this by way of saying our posts could become rather cursory this week and next, it appears the insane-o-meter could be peaking in the red zone!
For reasons like those cited above we have completely and totally neglected to show anything from Paris Fashion Week, and we’re not able to get to it today. The best we can do is an update on a few recent sightings from our fave faux-prep school, Gossip Girl. In attendance at the Louis Vuitton show in Paris last week, actress Leighton Meester.
Ms. Meester is wearing pieces from the 2010 Cruise line and carrying a bag from Sofia Copolla for Louis Vuitton.
All the rage with many of the younger set, the Japanese-inspired line now does everything from handbags to clothing to watches. BTW, the Lagerfeld figurine is a limited edition, so don’t let your chance to add this to the mantle (ahem) pass you by. True confession: TP adores some of these little creatures.
One other newsbyte from that publication involving the designer shares a quote from Mr. Lagerfeld on a very timely topic, models and their weight.
“The designer told Focus magazine that people prefer to see slimmer models and those who don’t are “fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly.” The comment came in response to German magazine Brigitte‘s decision to use ordinary women for their shoots.
We hope to do more on this topic soon.
One added note, the Consort’s quote while proofreading: “Too bad it’s not a bobblehead, that would be sweet.”
We have a sneak peek at a few of the soon-to-debut Carlos Falchi for Target handbags.
We originally posted news of the upcoming line here, back in May.
The handbag collection arrives at Le Boutique Targèt November 1, and will be positioned as part of the retailers “dashing designer deals” holiday promotion.
Finally today, we presume Don Draper may have beenstunned by Betty’s antics Sunday on Mad Men, fortunately he is likely to remain in the dark. (No, we are not delving into his conduct, there isn’t enough blog space to tackle that topic, we’ll only say the word cad comes to mind.) At any rate, Mrs. Draper’s latest is nothing-less-than-shocking.
For those not familiar with our friends (the characters), here is how Betty generally looks:
And this is what we find now. (Gasp – the horror!)
The photos are part of GQ’s November cover story on actress January Jones, who plays Betty Draper. Those fond of Betty Ms. Jones should be advised the photos share quite a bit of leather, lace, and January.
Until next time!
