After an 18 year hiatus - which was prompterd by Harper's Bazaar, Liz Tilberis stealing him away in 1992 - Lindbergh will now lend his un-retouching ways back to Vogue after meeting with Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington some time last week.
We must say, we're more interested to see how Lindbergh's ways will mesh with Wintour's ways. But, that's not for us to judge. Is it?
Although, we all know Tilberis stole him away, Lindbergh claims it was because he didn't have fans of his work at the Vogue office - but squeals to WWD that the Vogue staff asked him to return:
“It was like you are the black sheep in the family, and your older brother asks you to come home.”
"What we’d really like to do, especially for women’s, is a shoe collaboration where we maybe go to someone like Manolo Blahnik or Christian Louboutin. Gap did a great job doing that with Pierre Hardy, I thought. Women’s is just harder. Would I love to sell Chanel bags? Sure. Would they let us? No."
-Jenna Lyons, J. Crew Creative Director
We say: go right ahead, girlfriend!
On his blog, it read:"I just want to take a moment to say I’m really hurt by the recent and false allegations of insensitivity and misconduct. I feel fortunate to work with so many extraordinary people each and every day. I’ve always been considerate and respectful of the people I photograph and I view what I do as a real collaboration between myself and the people in front of the camera. To everyone who has embraced and supported me and my work, I am so grateful. Thank you, it means a lot."
Last night was amazing night in NYC as I marched uptown to Bergdorf Goodman to socialize with Linda Fargo, Leigh Lezark, Daphne Guinness and more.
The event was to celebrate Steven Klein: 30 Seasons With Akris. The label's designer, Albert Kriemler, was also in attendance. Besides the amazing and devastatingly handsome catering and bar staff, the fourth floor was filled with delightful Akris-clad mannequins and images of Akris clothing throughout the years.
After industry insiders came forth with a what's-the-big-deal? stance towards the predatory allegations towards Terry Richardson from some of his subjects, Jezebel invited more alleged victims to write in anonymously of their encounters with Richardson.
It's said that they received a ton of emails, which made us a bit skeptical at first - until we searched and found a picture of Richardson receiving oral sex from an unidentified subject. Plenty of insiders wrote in anonymously in fear of losing their jobs. Though many of the stories are too graphic to post, we think outlining the problem is sufficient.
London's hottest (and we do mean hottest) designer, Henry Holland, launched his H! by Henry Holland collection yesterday at Debenhams - where he also signed "Bagazine" clutches for those who came to the 7:30am call time.
The photographs, shot by Mark Irwin, phenomenally capture Lezark in denim and corduroy - though we don't know if it's the clothing itself or envy of Lezark's Chanel ambassador title that we love more.
We were totally unprepared for what we saw - Chanel tweed jackets, purses and shoes, Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs and Goyard bags, fur, fur and more fur, and plenty more (dresses, coats, skirts, etc.) all at discounted prices.
Coco Rocha is wasting no time in beating Lara Stone (who wil have Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy design her gown) to the altar. Rocha recently tweeted her engagement to her interior designer, James Conran - and now she's tweeting about how she convinced designer, Zac Posen to create her wedding dress for her June 9th wedding. Her tweet reads:
As generous as Rocha has been on her Twitter account, let's hope she tweets sneak peeks of what she will walk down the aisle wearing.
Any guesses on who will design James's tux?
Wednesday night was the stellar CFDA nominations - right after Diane Von Furstenberg was re-elected another term for the organization - as some of New York's most popular young designers came out to celebrate at Diane's design studio for a cocktail gathering.
