One day : 2 big news : Was Carine Roitfeld fired ? Is Viginie Mouzat about to become the new Editor in chief of French Vogue ... ?
Rumor Number 1 : Was Carine Roitfeld Fired From Vogue?
Rumor Number 2 : Is Le Figaro's Fashion Director Virginie Mouzat Front runner for the Job??
Paris fashion world is going crazy... fashionistas are boycotting the famous Avenue Montaigne and are turning themselves into "fat-shionistas" because of the post-news depression ...
Carines is gone ... long gone ...
Ok Ladies , wipe your little eyes and expect a brand new day for french Fashion ! One Name : Virginie Mouzat ... This is the number one rumor lately and we must admit that we first didn't think about her for the position , but after all it would kinda make sense and we approve of Virginie for the position!
The Shocking thing about Carine leaving (erm erm , or being forced to leave) is that "No one knew about it—not even Emmanuelle Alt or Olivier Lalanne"... Weird ...
The reason no one knew? Because, according to our sources, Roitfeld did not resign—she was fired.
The chain of events that led up to the alleged firing, this way:
It appears that the Conde Nast-Carine Roitfeld fall-out was a long time coming. Our sources tell us the magazine's parent company was unhappy with all the bad press surrounding Roitfeld's alleged pay-for-play scandals—this year, alone—demanding huge sums of money for extracurricular consulting gigs and the enormous, public embarrassment of being banned from Balenciaga last season for abusing her position at Vogue. In the latter case, Roitfeld allegedly borrowed Balenciaga preview pieces and sent them to her client, Max Mara, to copy—"It wasn't the first time," one source tells us. "One [Balenciaga] precollection ended up, in its entirety, at Max Mara."
What do you think ?
and above all what do you think about Carine's successor? We kind of were expecting Emmanuelle Alt to take over the position ... a bit disappointed

10 years at Vogue Paris... 10 years during which we grew up with Carine Roitfeld...
10 years of fasion tips , 10 years of creating fashion, crating a style , a unique style ...
Carine Roitfeld took the sad decision to leave and go for some brand new adventures...
We can't really picture anyone else but the french godess of fashion to run the magazine...
If we had a guess, we'd say Anastasia Barbieri...
So sad ...
Only one thing to do: from now on read Nippon Vogue and trust Anna dello Russo
Natalie Portman looks beautiful on the cover of the latest issue of Vogue magazine , wearing a J. Mendel hand pleated silk chiffon dress, under the lens of Peter Lindbergh. Natalie Portman speaks about her character transformation ,one that earned her a Golden Globe — Best Actress (Drama) for Black Swan. She shared, “I’m very honored by the HFPA nomination, and to be included in this group of actresses I so admire. The experience of filming Black Swan with Darren Aronofsky and our incredible crew is already the most fulfilling experience of my career. The audience appreciation of the film is only furthering how grateful and proud I am to be part of the film.”

Mr. Louboutin about wearing high heels:
"Never. Well, twice. I went to a party once where guys had to dress like girls. And another time I was making heels and I was trying to understand the balance, the center of gravity. It was very technical, so I can't say I've worn high heels for the excitement, or to feel like a woman."

*Karl Lagerfeld suggests a Chanel take on “the Victorian wedding dress, with a twist — high boots and open in the front.”
*“...In Kate I see the natural, radiant and self-confident attitude of today’s girls. For this, I can’t help but think of an embroidered, fluid-silhouette dress in precious fabrics that will help her make an everlasting impression.” — Alberta Ferretti
*“Something old: Victorian skirt. Something new: patchwork gown. Something borrowed: Queen Elizabeth’s veil. Something red: Elizabethan top, as red was the wedding color until 1900!” — Christian Lacroix
*“I admire the balance Kate Middleton strikes between elegant and contemporary with her unmistakable style. For her, I had in mind clean lines, soft shapes and classic touches such as the boat neckline and distinctive train.” — Frida Giannini, Gucci
*“I love the idea of mixing traditional opulence with a very clean aesthetic for this modern-day princess.” — Jason Wu
*“This dress was designed to enhance Kate Middleton’s beauty through precious fabrics. The clean and contemporary lines, never redundant and beyond all specific stylistic periods, give her an eternal image of grace and elegance.” — Angela Missoni
*“The royal wedding will be magical. Kate’s dress should be a modern mix of the traditional and contemporary.” — Monique Lhuillier
The photo isn't exactly oozing warm wishes and happy holidays. In fact it's the exact opposite: cold, dreary and elitist.
Oh well, at least Mason looks cute in his little pinstripe suit!
Because one wedding dress is never enough for the rich and famous, Nicole Richie wore THREE dresses on her wedding day.
But for the special walk down the aisle, the 29-year-old wore a gorgeous Marchesa wedding gown.
The dress, reportedly inspired by Grace Kelly's wedding gown, made Richie look like a princess.
The gown featured some intricate lace detail above and a skirt made from over 100 yards of hand-draped silk organza and tulle petals.
Richie then changed into another Marchesa dress for the dinner reception and then into another Marchesa dress for the after-party.
Nicole looked amazing and magazines worldwide are picking up the story and the photos of the special occasion.
Congrats to the newlywed couple!

Karl Lagerfeld's Favorite Muse Baptiste Giabiconi is a mess... sorry but even I would have done a better job darling !
Wow. Just, wow.
Chanel model Baptiste Giabiconi has released the music video for his debut single Showtime.
After watching it, we think Unkle Karl needs to get this boy some lip syncing lessons.
Check out Baptiste's dramatic video in the clip (above)!
P.S. Anybody else notice the similarities between this and Lady GaGa's Telephonemusic video ???
The 12 year old arrived to the premiere of Somewhere in Los Angeles this wearing an adorable dress and embellished shoes both from the fall 2010 Valentino Couture collection.
That's right, she's barely hit double digits and wearing couture when actresses twice her age struggle to get any big name designer to loan them red carpet looks.

Ok this is not a secret anymore ... We have had a massive crush on Devendra for YEARS ... since the day his voice was trying to spellbind us in Colette store in Paris...
Since that particular day I am kind of obsessed with him , his music, his look... Thats the reason why I almost fainted today when playing this video on youtube...
This only reason why Devendra would shave his beard off would be : HE IS TRYING TO GET RID OF ME!
Please bring back the dirty look, long beard , sexy tattoos and dirty nails ... We miss it !
Please we beg , beg, beg, beg you!
As we mentioned earlier this week, Nick Knight created a tribute video for Alexander McQueen that opened Tuesday night's British Fashion Awards and it is breathtaking!
"This film is my way of speaking about a very unique and important person who changed my life," Knight noted. "My desire was to speak in some way about the dark and the light contained within Lee, and within us all." [SHOWstudio]
Watch Nick's beautiful short film in the clip (above)!
Christian Dior's leading Lady Dior is back in a new short film inspired by John Galliano.
For the fourth and final installment, French actress Marion Cotillard takes on the role of Lady Grey, a sexy burlesque dancer in London.
The steamy clip is filled with sexual tension and is the perfect ending to the Lady Dior's campaign.
See the sexiness in the clip (above)!
