Considering the front-row and the runway lineup, Unique Topshop's Fall '13 show is where the cool girls hang out. With the Tate Modern as its backdrop and Olivia Palermo, Kate Bosworth, and Demi Lovato as front-row fixtures, the stage was primed for covet-worthy wares to take their rightful place on the catwalk. And so be it: Cara Delevingne opened in a midriff-baring sweater top and lacquered A-line skirt. Most notable, though, was the integration (and application) of sequin and sparkle as an embellishment altogether ungirlie. High shine was key, but the assumed glitziness was subdued by way of sharp tailoring, luxe fur add-ons, and masculine outerwear counterparts. Even the most feminine dusty-pink sequined skirt seemed like fair game for the tougher downtown girl. Of course, after seeing Jourdan Dunn close out the show in a deep-burgundy-hued sequin jumpsuit, we're pretty sure that's the one Fall piece our wardrobe needs most. See the best looks to hit the Unique Topshop Fall '13 runway now.
>> Two top editors at British Vogue have just departed the magazine within days of one another, after putting in many, many years under Alexandra Shulman. On Tuesday, creative director Robin Derrick announced via Twitter: "After 17 years I have decided to leave Vogue. Times of change and time for a change. New projects beckon....Exciting things ahead." And today, it was announced that fashion director Kate Phelan, who has been at the magazine since 1993, is leaving for a post as creative director of Topshop. [@robinderrick, @TheSTStyle, @Topshop]
Siri Tollerod Embodies Astrological Signs for Vogue UK December 2010; Alexandra Shulman Wants to Remain Editor Through 2016
>> Leave it to British Vogue to come up with a whimsical editorial that doesn't look like every other editorial ever. The spread, "Star Signs," shot by Tim Gutt in conjunction with stylist Kate Phelan and set designer Shona Heath, captures Siri Tollerod as each of the 12 astrological signs for the magazine's December 2010 issue.
Speaking of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman is coming up on 20 years as editor of the magazine in 2012, and in preparation, she says she's planning to give the magazine a redesign in March to make the format less rigid. Although, she specifies: "I'm more interested in Vogue's 100th anniversary than my 20th," indicating that she plans to stick around until at least 2016.
>> THE MODELIZER —Alexandra Shulman thought it risky to place a nude Natalia Vodianova on the June 2009 British Vogue cover — "because, obviously, people buy Vogue to look at clothes" — but she got Kate Moss's attention. The model picked up a copy earlier today in London . . . or maybe she was just doing research? She's rumored to be shooting for the magazine this week, with Kate Phelan styling. If she gets the cover, that will make number 27. [Vogue UK, TFS]
