We all look forward to the gorgeous scantily clad Angels who know they’re the hottest commodity – because they are – but you won’t be seeing a few regulars, seeing that the stork is delivering mini-angels in the next several months. But, it’s not such a horrible thing to see new faces – and i know you will agree.
Although Heidi Klum’s post-pregnancy silhouette is less than Victoria’s Secret ready, the Aphrodite-esque mother of four is sidelined from walking but will be hosting the show. Adriana Lima continues to sport her bump and Karolina Kurkova has recently given birth to a boy.
According to Modelinia,
Erin Heatherton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Ellingson, Chanel Iman, Liu Wen, Izabel Goulart, Isabeli Fontana, Shannan Click, Flavia de Oliveira, Lyndsey Scott, Aminata Niaria, Caroline Trentini, Caroline Winberg, and Lily Aldridge are all confirmed to walk in the show this year! It’s an especially exciting moment for Liu, as she’s the first Asian model to take part in the Victoria’s Secret show, and just as thrilling for Chanel, since she’ll be walking for the first time as well!
Alessandra Ambrosio and Selita Ebanks will be walking as well.
Tune in on December 1, 10/9C on CBS. We can’t wait!

It was a sojourn through Williamsburg under Marc Jacobs’ roof this morning. Fox’s better thirds dangled from street inspired leather bags screaming for a show independent from the Louis Vuitton collection. PETA would have had a fit. We didn’t know what to concentrate on whether it be the cotton ball afros, the bags or the uncharacteristic Louis Vuitton collection — lace leggings juxtaposed by hazy hued mini dresses; garbage bag inspirations translated into glazed plastic skirts coupled with hosiery silk tube shirts; denim blouse-cum-dresses accented by frills. To sum up the collection, ghetto-fab met high brow. If the LV monograms were absent I might not have recognized a complete turn from its high brow roots to this lowbrow-esque collection. It’s apparent that in a race to indie designs among the top fashion houses, Armani and Gucci are lagging far far far behind.

Mark your calenders! Following the success of Burberry’s FW S/S 2010 live stream — thank you Christopher Bailey — Marc Jacobs for French fashion house Louis Vuitton, and Alexander McQueen plan to adapt Burberry’s concept for a live streaming fashion show. Alexander McQueen will stream his S/S 2010 collection at Alexandermcqueen.com on October 6 at 8:30 p.m. Paris time, or 2:30 p.m. EST (NYC time), followed by Louis Vuitton on October 7 at 2:30 p.m. Paris time, or 8:30 a.m EST at Louis Vuitton’s Facebook page. You must join LV’s Facebook page for the free live runway show. And thus begins the evolution of fashion design tailored to the masses. Enjoy!
I never was a Lady Gaga fan despite my coverage on the omnipresent diva celebrity. She was everywhere during Fashion Week, at after-party, after after-party. I don’t know what my editors would say if they knew I divulged how uncooperative she was in getting interviewed for the September issue, but I’ve said it and now it’s too late. Only VIP and staff were permitted access to the exclusive venue, leaving everyone else waiting in line at the door for over an hour, waiting to see the in vogue icon herself, Lady Gaga. According to Mo’s friend who is buddy buddy with the owner, even the owner of The Box was absent. So surprise, surprise, Gaga decides show up to the overbooked, The Box, one hour after the end of the party, flanked by (of all people) Perez Hilton — I think the gay community was just slapped in the face with a hypocrite’s Chanel handbag. She was decked out from head to toe in white, her head cloaked by what I’ll liken to a fishnet over over sized sunglasses. Despite Aaron Hicklin’s desperation to have Gaga pose for a candid, Gaga refused — although, Noah, Out.com‘s editorial assistant, did manage to snag a few unsuspecting pictures for Out‘s Pop.nography blog. I’m re-posting a few pictures from Noah’s post (Noah, I hope you don’t mind).

According to Mo, who formerly interned for Narciso before moving onto Marie Claire, the likes of editors from Anna Wintour and Joe Zee and controversial celebs like Courtney Love were accounted for at Narciso Rodriguez’s S/S 2010 show at the tents. If you don’t know who Narciso Rodriguez is, shame on you. Hint: The Michelle Obama election night dress that resembled red spray paint on a black canvas. Mo was given backstage access and a talked up a brief conversation with her former employer.
I know I’ve been terrible with posting exclusive photographs as I’ve promised (I’m sorry!) despite having someone attend the events. So from now on I won’t mention a peep unless we can pull through. In the spirit of apologies, Mo has exclusive pictures of Narciso S/S 2010 that will be posted tomorrow. Maybe she will give dish on the after-party as well. Check back tomorrow night (after Mo get’s back from M.C.)!
