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.

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 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!
