Wellington’s fashionable crowds

December 6, 2007/23.20

If you were clever and in Wellington, New Zealand, you could have made two events scheduled for the same time last night.

Is it safe to co-brand with Kate Moss yet?

December 1, 2007/5.01

  If Kate Moss has cleaned up her act since being exposed for doing lines of cocaine by a British tabloid in 2005, then it is right for those who have a demand for her to ask her to be their spokeswoman. Donna Karan is the latest to hire the British supermodel, who is reportedly […]
