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.

Boys of Fashion Week SS/2012 by Justin Wu for Models.com

In signature high energy style Justin Wu captured the very spirited male models working the trenches of the SS12 Milan and Paris shows and rocking to Elvis Presley’s A Little Less Conversation and came back with this sizzling video extravaganza.


The Street Style Power Rankings: Fashion Week

As captured by STREETFSN’s HB Nam, we ranked the 10 men who killed it on the streets of Milan and Paris during Fashion Week. Check out the rest of the sartorial contenders here

6. Name: Bruce Pask

Occupation: Fashion Director, T: The New York Times Style Magazine

Location: Milan

The Signature: The Pask is easy to spot, just look for the dapperest man with a jacket draped over his shoulders, like some time-lost combination of Dracula and a victorious Greek emperor.

The Clincher: The book. What could it be? Perhaps The Leopard by Archibald Colquhoun, to suit the Italian setting?


In Color: A Chromatic Breakdown of Spring 2012

How does one process the thousands of items of clothing that debuted in Paris and Milan last week? Perspective helps. Context is good. Graphs are key. Here, a selection of colors that popped up more than once, arranged by hue. Spoiler alert: A certain shade of red had a big year.

Francophile: Oscar-nominated actor James Franco exposes an unkempt armpit on the April 2011 cover of French fashion magazine Vogue Hommes International. As I would say: When in France, do what the French do.

On Your Marc: Fall/Winter 2011 should be an impressive selling season for fashion designer Marc Jacobs. His collections for his eponymous signature line, Marc Jacobs, as well as for Louis Vuitton are show stoppers; both inspired by S&M while infused with feminine fantasy. His show for Louis Vuitton (shown above) is hands down the “show-of-the-season”, which is something hard to say thanks to standout collections by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and Nicola Formichetti for Thierry Mugler. But, in my honest opinion, this is nothing more than the truth.

For Louis Vuitton, bellhops opened caged elevator doors revealing the superest of supermodels—Kate [Moss], Naomi [Campbell], Carolyn [Murphy], Karolina [Kurkova]—wearing some of the best outfits I’ve seen in a long time. Models pranced around a black-on-black tiled catwalk, like vultures circling a carcase, to a stunning soundtrack by Phillip Glass. The whole moment was tantalizing. And to top it all off, Kate Moss closed the show puffing a cigarette and looked better than ever.

Marc Jacobs seems to be getting better with time. What I admire most about his work is his attention to detail—not just in the clothes, but in his shows. There’s always a story to tell. And his stories, in my honest opinion, are like bestselling novels!

Saab Story: There’s nothing sad about Elie Saab’s Spring 2011 haute-couture collection unless you consider the fact that mostly none of us can afford it. This season, he once again wowed the fashion crowd with his brilliant knack for beauty and fantastic taste. Halle Berry was onto him 10 years ago when she arrived to the Academy Awards in one of his gowns. Today, I wouldn’t be surprised if every Hollywood starlet bitch slaps their stylist for not selecting a gown from this flawless collection. I know I certainly would.

J’adore Dior: It’s Spring 2011 haute-couture show season in Paris—a time for fashion designers to showcase their best, intricately-designed clothing which, unfortunately, no one can afford.

One designer who never disappoints during this time of year is John Galliano, who designs for the house of Christian Dior. This season he gave us old Hollywood glamour on steroids with a modern twist.

Love Train: With the men’s shows beginning tomorrow in Milan, the endless parade of fashion weeks are back to haunt us. Photographer/videographer Justin Wu put together a quick recap of last season’s dizzying array of male models, clothing and chaos during Paris Men’s Fashion Week to the soundtrack of Love Train by The O’ Jays.

This just landed in our inbox: news of the Crumpled City maps, designed by Emanuele Pizzolorusso, for London, Paris, New York, Rome and Berlin. Clever, yes, but would you really forgo the smartphone?

Chanel, Spring/Summer 2011 collection

Honey, I get chills every time I watch this video of Karl Lagerfeld’s spring/summer 2011 collection for Chanel. Miss Lagerfeld knows how stage a show and -let me tell you!- this show is exactly what Paris is and should always be about.

The score from the live orchestra puts me in a subconcious trance as I’m mesmerized by the opulence of the Grand Palais. And where can one buy that soundtrack? Can we talk about that? I mean, the music is fierce! And that set! Ugh, words cannot explain!

The best thing you can do is watch this video, so you’ll understand why I’m under fashion cardiac arrest. That and the fact that Baptiste Giabiconi can get it! Let’s just say that Miss Lagerfeld has impeccable taste in men. Those signature black sunglasses of hers clearly help her see the light in male beauty.

Chanel Couturegasm!

New York Magazine’s The Cut blog dishes about the amazement that is Chanel. And not just Chanel ready-to-wear but Chanel Couture, i.e., clothes which none of us can afford.

This collection is very fun and if I were a recession-proof socialite I would probably purchase a matching tin man tux and walk hand-on-hand, down the aisle, with Baptiste Giabiconi (if only that dream comes true).
