Well This Sucks...

Milan doesn't like black models. Or Asian models for that matter. The Shophound manages to break it down into numbers, showing what I had been expecting all along. Bravo to Bottega Veneta for being the diversity front-runner in Milan, inlcuding the bold (by Milan standards) decision to open with Arlenis Sosa (above). Also, bravo to Tomas Maier for an excellent collection. Not only are their bags sumptuous and supple, but their clothes have such an incredibly refined and easy chicness to them. Here's hoping for more diversity in Paris, which started today.

Because Yelle Is Too Amazing To Be American

French chanteuse Yelle's new video for "Ce jeu" is just as charming as the song itself. She's fresh and unabashedly adorable, which is all the more splendid because she's not classically gorgeous. Her style is absurd and quirky, and her sense of color blows my mind. Just as spectacular is the Fatal Bazooka song, "Parle à ma main," featuring the lovely Yelle. Those two are probably the most psychotically beautiful musical pairing on the planet. Enjoy!

Oh, Another Sexy Brazilian

Made in Brazil is totally obsessed with Felipe Torretta. I don't blame them one bit. If you can't be in New York this week, I guess Brazil wouldn't be a poor substitute.

New York + Fashion + Ryan Lochte

New York Magazine's addictive fashion blog, The Cut, is totally responsible for the above photo, which brings all the awesomeness of Nastia Liukin within into the same frame of all the supreme awesomeness that is Ryan Lochte. And despite their exceptional size difference, the two hardly look like an odd couple here in the front row of the Max Azria show. The Fug Girls hope they're dating. I hope they're not. Who doesn't have a weakness for gold-medal winning swimmers?

It's Fashion Week! (and that means more Garrett Neff)

It's New York Fashion Week again! In the next week, the minds of Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, and those cute Proenza Schouler boys will be catapulted onto the runway and into the homes of millions of fashion-obsessed folks like me. To start things off, we have Garrett Neff walking the Trovata show. Now, if there are two things I like, they're Garrett Neff and Trovata. Put those two things together, and hot damn, you've got a good time! So yay for Fashion Week! Here's hoping for more exposed skin!

Because Garrett Neff Isn't Human

Calvin Klein's new underwear god, Garrett Neff, is something out of a dream. A fairy tale. Another universe. Sweet, sweet lordy. From here.
