THE BITE: An amuse-bouche of fashion news

Six covers from the Fall issue of LOVE —possibly the best fashion magazine right now—on sale August 23. Story by Anne Pringle.

Gorgeous Covers
LOVE is about to release its “Gorgeous” issue, in which they have chosen seven women to represent the different sides of beauty. Gisele plays the bombshell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looks very Jessica Rabbit playing the siren, Lauren Hutton represents the heroine, and Agyness Deyn is the rebel (of course). LOVE editor Katie Grand said, “To my mind each of these women are perfect… I’d happily wake up with any of them (or failing that Miuccia Prada, but that’s another story—and maybe another cover.” (Vogue UK)

FNO Polish
Fashion’s Night Out is almost two weeks away, and Chanel will debut a new limited-edition line of nail polishes just in time. Star makeup artist Peter Philips fronted the creation of the khaki-inspired line, which includes Khaki Brun (an earthy gray-brown), Khaki Rose (a muted, dusty terra-cotta), and Khaki Vert (a mossy green reminiscent of last fall’s polish hit Jade).

Digital Fashion Week
This year, New York Fashion Week is going digital. Instead of formal paper invites, many fashion houses are choosing to send e-mail invitations with bar-coded confirmations. This means that upon arrival at the show, there will be no more frenzied chaos around a clipboard—seating assignments will be designated by airport-style kiosks. We like the idea not only because it should boost organization and efficiency, but because it also saves some trees! (Wall Street Journal)

Girl Next Door
Katie Holmes’s style has become more sophisticated in the past few years, but she will never lose that “girl next door” vibe, which has stuck to her ever since Dawson’s Creek. In case you were worried about her preppy innocence diminishing, her appearance in a J. Crew ad should solidify the label for life. She poses for her latest film campaign, The Romantics (which was outfitted by J.Crew), alongside co-stars like Josh Duhamel, Malin Åkerman and Adam Brody. (NY Mag)
