Dolled up in glitter lips and fake lashes (courtesy of Rachel Wood and her team from Benefit), minicrimped coiffure (by Saks), there we were doing the hardest job a model can do. 37 shows in 6 days, 12 hours in 5 inch heels, 8 scenes per show in front of thousands of screaming fashion obsessed kids. Mad by numbers, exhausting for appearances, crazy fun in a Groundhog Day sort of way. No wonder the images are more than a bit dazed and confused. Enjoy this little, alternative tour backstage from Clothes Show Live 2011, Birmingham from earlier this week.

It seems like this is the time for fashion celebrities to take over from models covering just as influential magazines as themselves. All aces of their trades, all adding ‘cover star’ to their credentials. Franca Sozzani, chief editor of Vogue Italia, was snapped beaming at Terry Richardson for Industrie #4, styled by Katie Grand, who, by the way would both deserve their own cover as well. But first, let’s just indulge in her ‘Franca Confidential” story as much as we can.
Model turned media mogul, ‘Miss Powerhouse’ Tyra Banks brings her high brow attitude to I Love You, her first fashion mag fronting in three years (photagraphed by Marcus Gaab) and titled the ‘Wrong Issue”.
Styling supernova and art director du jour Nicola Formichetti bigs up L’Officiel Homme Korea, bringing his ‘Love, Sex Magic’ out for a ride on the pages, donning some soft drama, accessorizing with a butterfly on the image by Branislav Jankic (or it’s just got in his eye?).

Debutant men’s mag, SID features a few friends of mine, so here’s a bit of tribute to the crew. Sweetest stylist in the world, Alexandra Carl has put together the ‘Enter The Void’ story with the all allure Mr Andrej Pejic. He dives into avant garde hairsculptor, Charlie Le Mindu’s creations, pre-escalating future sales of SID’s issue number one. Photographed by Henrik Bulow.

Cool queen on her own right, the one and only Dame Vivienne Westwood has proved her anti-establishment credentials this weekend as she returned to the Occupy London protest outside London’s St Paul’s Cathedral.
She was quoted as saying “What you’re doing, I think it’s wonderful” to hundreds of protesters.
The mother of punk, fittingly has arrived to the site with her sons, Ben Westwood and Joseph Corré, for the second time since the anti-capitalist camp has set up more than two months ago. The constant resistant also talked about her climate change concerns, declaring the issue as “connected completely to the financial situation”.
