THE BITE: An amuse-bouche of fashion news

Vogue hearts Kate
The September issue of British Vogue is out this week, and superstitious supermodel Kate Moss is featured on the cover. This marks the 30th time she has appeared on the magazine’s cover (and the 6th time she has appeared on the all-important September cover in the past 10 years). The magazine’s editor, Alexandra Shulman, claims the two biggest trends this fall will be “the Fifties”—think fitted tops with fuller, womanly skirts—and “minimal cool”. Like Kate Moss in nothing but a gorgeous navy Burberry pea coat. (Vogue UK)

Fashion’s Night Out goes international
Speaking of Alexandra Shulman, she is pairing up with designer Giorgio Armani to host Fashion’s Night Out in London this September. The stylish duo will host a cocktail reception at the Emporio Armani store on London’s Bond street on September 8th. Fashion’s Night Out will take place in 16 countries this year, including Australia, Japan, Russia and China. (WWD)

Blue smoke
It’s not just fragrance companies that have been taking their inspiration from the colour blue: Estée Lauder has just released its new cosmetics collection, Blue Dahlia Pure Color makeup. Highly esteemed makeup artist Tom Pecheux, who is also the brand’s creative director for cosmetics, designed the collection. The five-colour Blue Dahlia eye palette is definitely a highlight, and is meant to “bring an edge to the classic smoky eye [with] a touch of bright blue,” said Pecheux.
