To look at her carefully curated Instagram feed, designer L’Wren Scott was a 1-percenter, a gold-plated member of the international elite: There she was on vacation in India with boyfriend…”

KEEPIN’ UP WITH KENDALL: Someone please dial 911! There’s a fashion emergency happening within the Kardashian clan by the name of Kendall Jenner. But this girl isn’t committing a crime like her less sartorially-savvy older sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. This issue regards the five-alarm status of her modeling career right now.

Earlier this month, she booked a coveted slot to walk in Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 show in New York. Then she ‘hopped across the pond’ to walk for Giles during London Fashion Week, while squeezing in time to hobnob with Anna Wintour during the TopShop Unique show. But, if that wasn’t enough, she lands an opportunity to walk exclusively for Givenchy in Paris.

Kendall’s career launched after she signed with model management firm The Society last year. They’re a division of Elite Model Management in New York, representing bold-faced names like Adriana Lima and Lindsay Wixson. She’s also recently developed a strong business relationship with powerhouse stylist Katie Grand. This explains Kendall’s stints for Marc Jacobs and Giles; two of many designers Grand works with during show season.

But, let’s be honest here: it doesn’t hurt that she comes from reality television royalty. Her father is Olympic legend Bruce Jenner (check!) and her sister is Kim Kardashian, mother to the daughter of Kanye West (BOOM!). Surely, she’s got the look, but she’s definitely got the right connections.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Channing: Ladies and gentle-queens, let’s face it: we’re all a little obsessed with Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum. He’s giving you face for days, body-ody-ody-ody and swag appeal so potent your panties drop just from the thought of his sizzling personality. But, do any of you remember him when he was a young male fashion model? 

Leave it up to respected fashion journalist Tim Blanks to dig up some precious footage of a then 21-year old Tatum. It’s all captured in a new Style.com web series titled TBT (as in Throwback Thursdays). Blanks interviews Tatum backstage at Neil Barrett’s first ever menswear show, chatting about career goals and Kate Moss. 

PAT CLEVELAND’S GOT A NUDE ATTITUDE: You’re truly on to something when larger-than-life editor Andre Leon Talley collaborates with the devilishly handsome designer and photographer Tom Ford. Throw into the mix legendary supermodel Pat Cleveland along with South African male model Conrad Bromfield and - BOOM! - you’ve got yourself a fashionable Supernova.

This explosion of style occurs in the March issue of Numero Russia on newsstands now. The cheeky cover and fourteen-page spread, photographed by Ford, features a 60-year old Cleveland cavorting with a completely nude Bromfield. She looks better than ever sporting ensembles from Tom Ford’s Spring 2014 collection. Leon Talley, currently Editor-at-Large at Numero Russia, clearly had the right idea when planning this spread.

RUGGED REMIX: Get into Alexander Wang’s menswear collection for Fall 2014. Think urban street-wear updated with a high dosage of sophistication.

POP GOES MOSCHINO: Italian fashion house Moschino presented one of the most exciting shows during Milan Fashion Week this season. Jeremy Scott, the brand’s newly-appointed creative director, infused a plethora of pop cultural references into the brand’s Fall 2014 women’s collection. Normally you wouldn’t expect to see McDonald’s golden arches served up as a plush leather shoulder bag or Spongebob Squarepants’ iconic image plastered across a head-to-toe ensemble. But, somehow these unexpected twists fell into place.

Jeremy Scott once tweeted “it’s not my job to give people what they want, rather it’s to give them what they don’t know what they want yet”. This message definitely rings true in this collection. What woman desires a handbag replicated as a McDonald’s Happy Meal or, better yet, craves a gossamer wedding gown inscripted with food additive diagrams?

It will be interesting to see how well these editorial-worthy garments and accessories sell in retail. They may be exciting to see in a fashion spread, but could get lost in translation with customers on the sales floor. Only time will tell.

PICTURE PERFECT: Representing “the true outfitters of modern American style”, interior designer Nate Berkus and his fiance Jeremiah Brent headline Banana Republic’s latest advertising campaign. It’s one thing to have amazing engagement photos. But, it’s another thing to have your engagement photos plastered in every magazine, billboard and store. Talk about maximum exposure.

I don’t know what are. I think people make them up, and then they say, ‘Oh yeah, yellow’s really in this season.’ Sometimes there are obvious trends, but there aren’t any at the moment I can think of. Are there? It’s bullshit. Trends are a lie magazines make up so you feel like you have to buy something.

I’ve always said that in this industry you have to accept that there is always, always going to be someone ahead of you on the masthead, prettier, better dressed, skinnier, with more money, more respected, invited to more parties and smarter than you. So really you just have to do you and do you the best you can.

—Mary-Kate Steinmiller

I never look at fashion magazines. I find them incredibly boring. To me, reading a fashion magazine is the last thing I need to do. I’ve got books I need to read. More people should read books.

Into The Blue: It was pretty evident that Robert Geller was a little all over the place when designing his Spring 2012 menswear collection. Where was his man going? Or better yet: Where was his man coming from? Was he Amish? Was he a man stranded on a tropical deserted island? He could have been a rebellious street punk for all we know. Regardless of what his message was, this collection showcased a refreshing splash of blue hues which closed the show.
