Marni “The stunning collection she presented Sunday morning proposed the idea of a sort of strict and clean elegance that still was quite womanly. … It made for a clean silhouette that effectively walked the line between minimalism and maximalism.” —Emily Holt, “Much more straightforward, maybe more restrained than usual. One interpretation: Castiglioni’s collaboration with H&M had allowed her to get a lot of classic Marni out of her system, offered her pause for reflection, and pointed her toward a possible future. Expect more changes.” —Tim Blanks,

Karlie Kloss‘ triumphant return to the runway wasn’t the only thing people were talking about at the Anthony Vaccarello show today in Paris. The designer also debuted his new shoe collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti. The sexy, strappy, pointed toe stilettos are smoking hot, to be sure, but actually walking in them proved to be a serious challenge for at least one poor model.

Our friends over at ELLE were at the show and noted that one poor model fell so many times during the finale, she had to be helped down the runway by two of her fellow models.

Jessica Michault, online style editor for the International Herald Tribune tweeted, “Poor Zanotti. In his 1st collaboration with Vaccarello a model needed help to walk the finale. Flashbacks to Kanye West’s show last season.” Hopefully Kanye–who was front row at the show according to this tweet– was paying attention and doesn’t put his models in dangerous shoes.

Anyway, we hope she’s okay! Shoutout to the two good Samaritans who came to help in her hour of need! Who says there’s no camaraderie between models?

Anna Wintour Hung Out With Victoria Beckham on a Subway Platform

16 Feb

Anna Wintour. On the subway. Doing the Charleston?

Holy crap.

But don’t fall our of your seat just yet: Queen Anna didn’t actually ride the subway with all us peasants. She, along with Victoria Beckham, Hamish Bowles, and a group of fashion folk took to the subway platform to promote the UK for the Great campaign, a marketing effort championed by Sir Peter Westmacott, Britain’s ambassador to the U.S, which will target nine countries and 14 key cities, reports WWD.

And as far as we can tell, Anna et al only stayed long enough to snap a photo with the Union Jack-wrapped train at the Grand Central station. Still, seeing her on the subway platform is kind of like seeing an elephant riding a bicycle, no?
