From the cheeky mind of Father John Misty frontman Josh Tillman, these original artworks are charming send ups of contemporary magazine covers. As much as mock headlines like “Other Numbers + Words” poke fun at print publishing conventions, we sense at least a little affection for the joy that glossies bring us within the parody. After all, imitation is the sincerest form, sardonic or not!
We are so excited to be featured in Vogue’s Jeanius video of the week, a video guide to the smartest denim, with out Alice skinny in Chianti and Director of Special Events Sylvana Ward Durrett! Sylvana looks amazing in our Alice Skinnys and we love how she paired the jeans with a simple yet sophisticated blouse and heels. She pulls of a fresh, trendy and professional look, even if she may have borrowed outfit inspiration from Miranda Kerr! Watch the video here:

British fashion photographer Tim Walker has had us ooh-ing and ahh-ing for the past decade within the pages of Vogue. Tim Walker’s magical and humorous style is now on exhibition called “Story Teller” at the Somerset House until January 27, 2013. If we could make it to London before January, we would love to get an even closer look into his fantasy world that he creates in each of his photos. But for now, here are some of our favorites…

Nothing says Halloween like a good old fashioned Jack O’ Lantern, but these pumpkin carvings from designers like Richard Chai, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Steven Alan are anything but old-fashioned. See the full collection of “designer” pumpkins at Vogue.com. If that’s not enough inspiration for your own pumpkin project this weekend, see these “fashion pumpkins” from Refinery29, who asked their creative staffers to go head to head in a carving contest. Happy Halloween!
The Council of Fashion Designers of America handed out their annual Awards at Lincoln Center on Monday, with all the fashion bigwigs in attendance. In a relatively brief ceremony hosted by Anderson Cooper, Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez took the women’s wear designer of the year award, Michael Bastian won for men’s wear, and Alexander Wang took the accessories category.
In the junior division, Prabal Gurung won the Swarovski Award for women’s wear design, which is given to new and emerging talents, along with Robert Geller in the men’s wear category and Eddie Borgo in accessories. Perennial CFDA winner Marc Jacobs was on hand to receive his Lifetime Achievement Award.
But as is usual, even in a room full of A-list celebrity and the gatekeepers of fashion, all eyes were on Lady Gaga, who received the Fashion Icon Award. She arrived in a heel-less platform shoes, a long custom-made Mugler skirt, a black corset and a short blue wig. For her acceptance speech, she dropped the skirt, and by the the time she got to the afterparty at the Standard Hotel, she had dismissed the bodice as well, leaving only a thong with black spikes, and a sheer body suit. R&B Legend Patti LaBelle invited her on stage to sing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ before the DJ took over and the newly minted Fashion icon danced into the night.
