Anna Goes Metro
Anna Wintour might not take the subway in New York, but we can always dream she lives like one of us, can’t we? Here’s just a snippet of a recent editorial in Oyster featuring Myla Dalbesio, shot by Tung Walsh. And if you’re starting to think about Halloween costumes, a DIY Wintour mask might serve you well.

Power Women
Ladies and gentlemen, the hottie heavyweights of music, fashion, and sport — Alicia Keys, Anna Wintour, and Maria Sharapova. These are the things one witnesses during New York Fashion Week… In this case, it was spotted at Jason Wu’s SS 2014 show on 82 Mercer.

The party of the year finally happened in New York. The fashion assignment at the Met ball this year? Punk. You decide if Anna “went there”. The Atlantic Wire delves into the corresponding exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute and the varied opinions on this topic. They also featured a radical image of Anna intended for the cover New York Magazine (which changed last second due to the Boston tragedy). Take a look at the scrapped Wintour cover here. Here’s the power editor last night at the Met Ball looking chic as ever in her Chanel gown.

Ready. Jetset. Go.
By Jenny Bahn
What do you do when you’re the editor of US Vogue? Get Mario Testino to photograph your passports, obviously. While the rest of us will likely be unable to commission Testino to save us the trip to the local Kinkos for what will likely be a garishly lit, unremarkable photograph destined to haunt us for 15 years, here’s something we can do: buy a gorgeous passport cover. No, you can’t help the horrors that might lie within those pages, but you can surely make the outside sing. We’re a big fan of this simple and elegant one by Smythson, as well as these iconic Goyard options on eBay. Say cheese!

Dior Wars
By Sade Lythcott
It’s official. The Dior lightsaber has officially been passed from John Galliano to Raf Simons. Nostalgic as some might be for the the frivolity and irreverence of Galliano, Dior couldn’t be in more deserving hands. Read this December’s Vogue article on Simons to get to know the designer and his aesthetic better. In the article, Raf expresses his great humility about such an important opportunity as the new creative director of Dior. In the article, he gives homage to his roots. “I am super proud of my parents—my mother was a cleaning lady, and my father was a night watchman in the army,” says Simons, “and now I stand in this world, and yeah, it’s a bourgeois environment, in a house that’s seen in France as the most important position in fashion, along with Chanel. But I don’t care about that. What I find amazing is that it’s a beautiful house where I can make clothes to make women happy. I was raised in a very happy nest by very happy people, and I like to think that those are enough ingredients to make me succeed at Dior.”
We wish Simons the best of luck. Check out Simons first collection for Dior here. Thoughts?
