Miuccia Prada and Karl Lagerfeld are by far my favorite on-the-record activists in favor of skinny, skinny people. I most certainly do not share their views on beauty, but boy, when they speak their minds, you gotta love the brash, pots-crashing-in-the-kitchen-at-4-am delivery.
When given the task of dressing reportedly "curvy" supernumeraries (non-singing extras a.k.a. the costumed people in back) for a new production at New York's Metropolitan Opera, Miuccia was heard groaning: "I cannot clothe them! I need models!"
Thus, the Metropolitan Opera is holding a new set of castings (probably in conjunction with cycle 3,029 of ANTM) to look for a new slew of skinny, model supernumeraries with vacant faces and frizzed hair.
"I only have one headshot left, and the headshot in my hands represents the girl who's still in the running for the Opera's Next Top Extra. The girl who's name I do not call is toooooo fat, and must plummet to her doom from the 20th story window at once..."

The upcoming January 2010 issue of V magazine features a shoot designed solely to spread an encouraging message to fashionistas worldwide: no matter what size you are, you can still look absolutely stunning (the perfect message for the holiday eating season).
Photos from the editorial can be found at models.com. They feature models Crystal Renn and Jacquelyn Jablonski and was shot by one of my favorite Photogs: Mr. Terry Richardson.

Show me you LOVE me like this! No need to wait for Valentines day!
This season Ive been separately loving patent leather and monogram. Which would usually be a crime in my book. Yet, Gucci has revamped their "Boston" bag and created a beautiful nightmare! I dare you to love me!
There's a few of us that believe that Louis Vuitton is now a commercial brand that has become a little too accessible to the masses.... However Marc Jacobs has been doing a phenomenal job keeping the product fresh. His embossed leather duffle bag reeks if a trendsetter that takes no prisoners. Though I may be [literally] sick of seeing the monogram... I'll have to make an exception for this piece.
Who cares about feelings when icon, An Dukes is apart of your life. I have a strong liking for this young entrepreneur and it clearly shows here on Runway Wonderland. If you haven't fallen in love with her yet, my only question is... what the f-word are you waiting on?
I've never seen such an amazing bucket bag that actually didn't resemble just that. Derek Lam's version of the accessory possesses a simple statement that will have your entire circle questioning. But no worries, all you have to do is swipe a grin and tell 'em it was a gift.
There's no doubt that boots have been one of the dominating trends this season and though we hate to admit things like this, it's inevitable since boots are a staple in one's wardrobe. These ranger boots by Ralph Lauren are perfect for those casual afternoons in the city. Don't be afraid to pair these with a slim pair of [male] tights or dropped crotch thermals.
