The glossy is rumoured to be planning a mega cover for its September ’08 issue, featuring not one but six (!) of our all-time favourite supermodels on a special fold-out cover. Could there really be a cover reunion on the cards for Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Stephanie Seymour and Cindy Crawford? It seems likely… Hurrah!

American fashion isn’t just about New York anymore (just don’t tell New York – they won’t believe you anyway). And one of the cities which is really putting effort into scouting and promoting new design talent, with great success, is Chicago.

While L.A. and Miami have their own brands of bikini fashion and are often the “other” fashion cities the industry thinks of, Chicago is quickly coming closest to New York’s sense of style.

By Andrea Thatcher on July 16th, 2008

Lauren Conrad charity fashion show.jpg

What’s a publicity-seeking reality star to do when one of the events she’s paid to participate in isn’t exactly as fab as she’s quickly and inexplicably become accustomed to? Throw a hissy fit, I guess.

After the Humane Society and Animal Fair magazine flew Lauren Conrad first class to New York to participate in their charity fashion show featuring celebrities and their dogs/rescue dogs, Conrad refused to walk in the show. Which will ostensibly cost the charity a lot of money they were hoping to raise since there’s now no Conrad outfit to auction off, as was the plan.

There’s a ton of new fall arrivals from Chloe on Net-a-Porter today. Along with knits and jewelry pieces, we spotted the Chloe Kerala shoulder bag, $1,070.

We can’t tout enough the usefulness of red accessories. They go with a lot more than you think, and punch up an otherwise basic outfit adding chic appeal.

It seems even Chloe is toning down the buckles and straps for fall, with a much cleaner look.

Looks like the former Mookah Kinney designer already has a celebrity following for her new line.
