The Scoop!

1) More runway songs - Wouldn't these be perfect?
- The Bucket - King of Leon
- Some real folksy song by The Mountain Goats
- Never Win - Fischerspooner
- Blizzard of '77 - Nada Surf

4) I've been thinking about the consistently sharpest designers out there and I've come up with a short list:
- Olivier Theyskens, formerly of Rochas, now at Nina Ricci
- Stefano Pilati for Yves Saint Laurent
- Miuccia Prada, especially since her revival of Miu Miu
- Consuelo Castiglioni at Marni
- Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga
- Raf Simons at Jil Sander
- Alber Elbaz at Lanvin
- Donatella Versace (ever since she got out of rehab)

And then there's the list of hit-or-miss designers, who have the highest of highs and the fugliest of lows:
- John Galliano at Christian Dior and John Galliano
- Viktor & Rolf
- Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel (gorgeous more often than not), Karl Lagerfeld (somewhere in the middle), and Fendi (often forgettable)
- Alexander McQueen
- Giles Deacon
- Marc Jacobs at both Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs
- Dries Van Noten
- Zac Posen
