Greetings from sunny Milan,where I'm spending the week finding out what Italian designers thinkwe'll all be wearing six months from now.(I'll summarize: sixties mod shapes,fantastic boots andcolor,color,color.Fantastic!) But lots is going on,both here and back home,and some of it made me gasp.Let's get right to it,why don't we?
DO OF THE WEEK: 威廉希尔备用网址FASHION BLOGGERS GET THEIR DUE.
Maybe I'm biased becauseGlamourjust launched a威廉希尔备用网址fashion blogger network,but I've loved seeing bloggers—likeBryanboyandGarance Dore—seated alongside retail titans and other bigwigs in the front rows at the shows.And why not?The idea thatwilliamhill官网 is open to anyone with enthusiasm and flair is refreshing;besides,thestreet stylethat many of them tend to document brings 威廉希尔备用网址fashion off the runway and to exactly where it belongs: on real women's bodies,mixed with other things from their closets.That's a Do!
__DON'T OF THE WEEK:HAIRCUTHYPE.__
Yes,I'm in another country,but no matter: Earlier this week the emails and headlines started streaming in aboutJennifer Aniston's new haircut.It even led the "trending topics" list on the CNN international channel,just behind Rahm Emanuel's election as mayor of Chicago (and sandwiched between reports on the massive Mideast protests).So by the time I got around to clicking and looking at the haircut itself,I was certain something dramatic was in store: Had Jen actually gone Sinead O'Connor on us?Would there be pink streaks,or at the very least anEmma Watson pixie?And there it was:a beautiful bob,absolutely adorable and flattering but,frankly,a little unworthy of the global hype that preceded it.
