This may help people understand why AW won't give Katie the US Vogue cover page...



The Mirror recently lost a lawsuit brought by Katie and had to pay "substantial" damages - so it's payback time...

"...Kate Moss has been awarded "substantial" libel damages after a British newspaper falsely claimed she collapsed in a drug-induced coma.
The sexy supermodel successfully sued the Sunday Mirror over a report, which contained "serious and defamatory allegations" that she slumped into a coma after taking too much cocaine in Barcelona four years ago
..."



In a NYT NYFW "diary" article, where Conde Nast products, AW or Prada are strangely not mentioned in some context, as is the norm, the following exchange is presented:

"..."Great face, great skin, but can't stand the legs," the head of a major modeling agency was heard saying in the Bryant Park tents as a passel of models walked out of the Naeem Khan show, one of them a currently indispensable Eastern European giantess whose whole is apparently greater than the sum of her parts. "Piano legs," the man's companion was heard to reply. "Stumps."
"Whatever happened to legs like Lauren Hutton's?" the modeling agent said then, referring to the model who Richard Avedon once said had the best inner thighs in the business
..."

Well, obviously not everyone gets goosebumps from the "flawless" mod products discovered by the great casting directors of high fashion -and their groupies- mentioned elsewhere in this Blog...

Erin Wasson was unceremoniously "retired" to the "IMG ho-hum model hall of fame" before FW - following Angie Lindvall, Gisele and others. IMG has been trying hard to price Daria out of biz reality, to support her artificial #1 status, but there are few takers - we'll see if she sells any Lancome products...want to bet on how soon she will be "retired"?

Leticia Birkheuer looks very sexy on the cover of UK Esquire...fellow Brazilian Cinthia Moura will be starring in Showtime's "Masters of Horror" series...

I don't get it? AW? What does A&W Rootbeer have to do with fashion?

Are you a rootbeer person?
I am a Dr Pepper person myself...

AW = Anna Wintour, US Vogue editrix

Katie is all over UK Vogue, she was going to be all over Paris Vogue during the puffy snow white months (he he he) but people always wondered why fellow British lass AW refuses to give her the cover page of her pathetic rag

Coz she knows she is major trash and one day this would happen !!!

That's the second time the UK Vogue editrix, A Shulman, is going to face tough questions - she had a hard time during the "heroin chic" affair back in 1997 too
