i don't do fashion, I AM FASHION



From mid-calf to floor-grazing, the lean and mean silhouette was among the freshest on the Fall runways. The look was layered—the long paired with the even longer—at Marc Jacobs, Derek Lam, and Erin Fetherston. The long and lean L'Wren Scott, meanwhile, came up with a rail-slim coat that was just made for her elegant six-foot frame. Though sinuously sexy at times, these ensembles are mostly modest?l wardrobe for an ultra-stylish Mormon. Are you listening, Chloë Sevigny?

The fashion flock's native habitat may be city streets, but this season, designers have gone mad for plaid and discovered a need for tweed. Dries Van Noten, Karen Walker, Alexander McQueen, and Thakoon all said "Check, please," while Carolina Herrera, Richard Chai, and Michael Kors layered a tactile mix of tweed, velvet, shearling, and fur. Has there ever been a chicer way to ward off a damp chill on the moorlands?

It's hip to be peplumed this Fall. In reviving this dressmaker's conceit, so popular in the forties, designers shone a spotlight on the waist. Jackets, dresses, and skirts all benefited from this soft architecture, which carved natural womanly curves into newly stylish silhouettes at Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Lanvin, Prada, and Yves Saint Laurent.

Whohoo. Thanks for using my image of Sasha Dre. But was that the best image you could find of Kenya? hmm.

In terms of working well-known models What about adding Richard Elms to the list? He's Barbadian, did a slew of campaigns including Calvin Klein and two videos with Madonna in the late 90's and is still with New York Models. He was honoured along with Lene at the first BFW.
