VogueRussiaLaraStoneJanuary2013 412x540 Lara Stone For Vogue Russia January 2013

What an auspicious way for Vogue Russia to ring in the new year–with super stunner Lara Stone as shot by Hedi Slimane for  the January 2013 cover. Recently installed as the designer for the renamed Saint Laurent label, Slimane clearly has no plans to leave behind his talent as a photographer, shooting in stark contrast, a look that he has become his signature.

See the editorial on the next page, featuring fashion by Saint Laurent, Kiki de Montparnasse and Givenchy among others.

Saint Laurent Skinny Lookbook

Saint Laurent Skinny 7 Saint Laurent Skinny Lookbook
Negative headlines and Twitter fights dominated the fashion media after Hedi Slimanes debut show for Saint Laurent last week. Anyhow and and far beyond all these tumult, the designer and photographer now dropped the lookbook for his new line Saint Laurent Skinny. The lookbook was photographed by Hedi himself and features mainly basic items like silk tee’s and denim pants presented in a grunge-punk look.

What I just realized by finishing the post is that the model is male not female and so is the collection bound to men not women! I’d like to share it the lookbook with you anyway and get your opinion on it. (AND, as we all love to grub in our boyfriends wardrobe, some of the items may definitely also look good -if not even better- on us).

Check out the full lookbook after the jump.

Cathy Horyn vs. Hedi Slimane: Race To The Bottom

SlimaneLetter 540x361 Cathy Horyn vs. Hedi Slimane: Race To The Bottom

In a nutshell: NY Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn didn’t get invited to the Saint Laurent show held this week during Paris Fashion Week, subsequently she blew up the situation in her column, and then proceeded to blast the collection down to the ground. Apparently there is old beef between Horyn and newly-installed Saint Laurent designer, Hedi Sliman, so the lack of invite was not accidental. Slimane today responded with a Twitter letter (shown above) addressing Horyn. It reads:

Miss Horyn is a schoolyard bully and also a little bit of a stand-up comedian.
Insiders argue she is an average writer, and a bit provincial, but I disagree, she did some great things. Her biggest achievement so far is a book about Bill Blass, that I haven’t read. It might be terrific, and I’ll be happy to recommend it, if it helps the sales.
I also often hear that her sense of style is seriously challenged, providing that she is meant to be an authority in the village. This is totally irrelevant, no one has ever asked for her to be an inspiration to others after all, and likely it would never happen anyway.
Besides, and amusingly, her agenda is seriously thick and perfectly predictable. She is a woman on a mission, and this season she is on fire.
Miss Horyn also works for the New York Times, as everyone knows, where conflicts of interest might seem a little out of place and where being partial, or too friendly with the locals might not be an option.
In conclusion, and as far as I’m concerned, she will never get a seat at Saint Laurent, but might get 2 for 1 at Dior. She should rejoice. I don’t mind critics, but they have to come from a fashion critic, not a publicist in disguise. I am quite mesmerized she did get away with it for so many years.
And by the way come to visit our new website at ysl.com.
Sincerely yours.

And now Horyn has volleyed back, saying, “It’s just silly nonsense.” Well now that’s what you say! On the one hand I’m clapping my hands with glee as I plow through the popcorn, but on the other I’m thinking despite the old adage about any publicity, this is not a good look for either party.
