WhoWhatWear releases new book, What to Wear, Where

Photo Source: WhoWhatWear.com

Addicting fashion ideas site and brilliant collage designer WhoWhatWear will soon release its second book behind its debut into publishing, Who What Wear: Celebrity and Runway Styling for Real Life. Co-founders Katherine Power and Heather Kerr’s new project, titled What To Wear, Where, features a foreward by Nicole Richie but has less of a celebrity tilt than the first book and the site’s bread-and-butter posts. In a magazine’s feature-style layout, you’ll get tips on what to wear to everyday events, like first dates, job interviews, fashion-type events, and even out to run errands. A sensible how-to guide as much as an inspiring coffee table book, it looks like a great gift for birthdays, graduations, and just because.

Still waiting on a release date, but I’m keeping an eye on this one!

How much do models get paid?

You’ve put up with my snobbish disappointment when my favorite runway girls start appearing in Victoria’s Secret catalogs (yet I love when Siri’s the J.Crew cover girl), and now you can laugh in my face about it. I knew those girls “sold out” because of the money — and really, is being a Victoria’s Secret Angel really such a bad gig? — but I didn’t know how unbalanced the pay was on the other end. Did you know Vogue only pays about $250, probably per hour, while J.Crew pays $15,000, most likely for the whole job?

Fashionista uncovered the basic pay rates by media and companies like French Vogue, H&M and Laird and Partners (the brand who probably booked the A-list group for Gap at left), and it’s quite a startling — and informative — report.

Doutzen shoots for Tiffany’s

Here’s more campaign news: Doutzen Kroes is shooting ads (and a commercial?) for Tiffany & Co. in New York.

She’s wearing a coat and standing in artificial snow (there’s also a little fir or Christmas tree in the background), so I’m assuming this will be a Christmastime ad, to coincide with Natalie Portman’s Dior commercials?

Oh, the holidays!

Karlie’s all grown up

Karlie’s been featured in editorials and ad campaigns styled more maturely than her young teen self, but this recent editorial in Paris’ Numero, photographed by Lachlan Bailey, takes her to the next level.

Rodarte does the Olympics, too

When Ralph Lauren announced they’d design official Olympic outfits for athletes and for regular people, we could all see the logic. Now, conceptual, artistic label Rodarte is entering the ring by swathing Olympians like Johnny Weir in its classic netty knits.

Sunday’s New York Times Magazine will feature a spread of 13 Olympians dressed — in varying degrees — in Rodarte. I guess the pairing came from the idea that athletes have beautiful bodies that can do beautiful things and deserve to be cloaked in museum-worthy designs…or something.

Thanks to “Little Darlin” for the tip!

Dear Glenda,

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

That being said, if HB doesn’t survive the media crisis, know that you gave it your best shot.
