V Magazine Gets 19 Covers

We thought the second issue of Love magazine was getting a bit carried away when it revealed two different cover images, but V Magazine has taken it a step further with their new issue, boasting a remarkable 19 different covers.

The covers are for a special V magazine supplement entitled ‘World of Women & Supreme’ that comes with V61 and sees a whole host of models, including V favorite Iris Strubegger, posing with everything from raw meat to reptile claws draped on their bodies.

STK gets torn to shreds by Project Runway

Anyone who saw Thursday night's Project Runway: All-Star Challenge would have seen chic restaurant STK being literally torn apart by the Project Runway contestants. Sadly the fabric massacre wasn’t the result of a fashion catfight gone too far but the requirements of a challenge. The wannabe designers were dining at the restaurant when they were given a surprise challenge to create an outfit using only materials from the restaurant: cue a mass attack on the seats, walls and anything else that could be stitched into something couture-worthy. An innovative idea to say the least, but was it really worth having to completely redecorate a restaurant for? I guess we’ll see on the runway…

Is Jean-Paul Gaultier Leaving Hermès?

The latest rumor in fashion land is that Jean-Paul Gaultier may be resigning from his role as creative director of Hermès. Gaultier, who has been with the brand since Martin Margiela left in 2003, also has his own label that is tied to Hermes after the company invested $23 million in June 1999 for a 35 percent stake, so it will be interesting to see how this will be affected if the resignation rumors are true. It is supposed the designer will show his last collection for Hermes in Paris in October and, as yet, there are no suggestions as to who may replace him.
