Quote Me: Kim Noorda Recounts Her Weight Struggle

Every season I gained a little weight, and every time it felt like I was doing fewer shows. During the shows the pressure caused me to lose weight, and people complimented me on that. After the shows I gained a bit. When a month or so later I appeared for a job in front of the people who had booked me, the difference between me and my pictures was too great. Nobody said so, but I knew. So I would start eating less.

Riccardo Tisci Tricked Tommy Ton

There's nothing like the satisfaction of pulling off a good prank - and also nothing like the head hanging that follows being the subject of punking. Tommy Ton had to take back the rumours he promoted a few days ago when he realised that Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci was feeding him faulty information - on purpose.

Ton, the man behind the style blog Jak & Jil, tweeted this vague message recently: “I received some news tonight that is going to SHAKE the fashion world in the next two days. CRAZY!!!!" This led the fashion crowd to revive the rumour - yes, again - that Alber Elbaz would be replacing Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel. When it got to the point that Chanel reps had to step in my saying "replacing him is not an issue," things were sufficiently out of hand.

Still, Ton kept up his case with tweets like this one: “You think u know but u have NO idea. Sorry, it isn't my place to announce this news. You'll know exactly what I'm talking about soon..” Or this: "view the Style.com Paris videos and see if you can figure it out. Tehehehe :p" But Ton wasn't laughing so hard when he had to announce that Tisci had successfully duped him. Now, Ton's changed his talk: “Guessing game is over. My source and I are the victim of a good prank played by Mr. Tisci himself. He got us good :(“

Karl Lagerfeld Teaming With Hogan

Oh, Unkle Karl, you never cease to keep us guessing. According to Grazia, the iconic Mr Lagerfeld has a collaboration lined up with the Italian luxury brand Hogan, which will see the Chanel designer develop a "special project for the Spring/Summer 2011 collection." Hogan has revealed that Lagerfeld will be working on clothes, shoes and accessories - and though the collection is being built up as a one-time venture, others speculate there's more to be told.

As we all know, Lagerfeld is a busy man. Besides his work with Chanel, Chanel Couture, Fendi and his Karl Lagerfeld line, he's a photographer, a book publisher and the owner of a Paris bookshop. But if you ask the Grazia team, a project with Hogan (a member of the Tod's conglomerate) might be a turning point. Within the past few days, Phillips-Van Heusen bought the Tommy Hilfiger fashion group, which previously owned the designer's eponymous brand. However, the new owners left that label out of the deal. Considering that Lagerfeld was open to marketing his high-end taste to the high street with a 2004 H&M collaboration, is this the start of something new entirely?

Meadham Kirchhoff Obviously Did Something Very, Very Right

Despite mixed thoughts in the sea of critics who witnessed the AW10 collection from Meadham Kirchhoff at London Fashion Week, it seems the design duo have hit the spot after their orders have doubled from last season's structured metallic performance. The Fall collection saw a mishmash of long lace dresses, over-accessorised with veils, jewellery and crowns galore.

Although it may have been difficult to define whether the show was a little lost in it's styling, or actually pure genius, it seems stylists are going crazy for the ecclectic collection from design team Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff. The most popular pieces are showing to be the floor-length lace numbers, intricate prints and clever knitwear, so although it may have been hard to distinguish between garments on the runway, they obviously work well standing on their own. Could this be Meadham Kirchhoff's recipe for success? Only next season will tell.

Karl Lagerfeld Talks Prostitution And Faxing Anna Wintour With Bruce LaBruce

In an epic interview spanning seven pages on the Vice website, film-maker, writer and photographer Bruce LaBruce interviews the legendary Karl Lagerfeld, covering controversial topics including gay marriage, the mystery of the infamous sunglasses and being anti-materialistic. Admitting to not having much knowledge prior to his interview on the fashion legend, LaBruce conducted his research and based his questions upon the parallels between the two - in a perhaps arrogant, yet fittingly Vice style of beginning.

That said, he delves into some interesting and highly personal subjects, with Lagerfeld answering with his usual dry wit and brutal honesty - one of our favourite answers being this sharp response at being asked to remove his notorious sunglasses. "I had an interview once with some German journalist—some horrible, ugly woman. It was in the early days after the communists—maybe a week after—and she wore a yellow sweater that was kind of see-through. She had huge tits and a huge black bra, and she said to me, 'It’s impolite; remove your glasses.' I said, 'Do I ask you to remove your bra?'"

Liam Gallagher Hopes To Conquer The Womenswear Market, Too

We all know of Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher's rather confident approach to life, and so it came as no surprise when the Mancunian singer launched a rather unoriginal clothing line - Pretty Green - last summer. The collection - full of the trademark Gallagher tee and parka - was well recieved in the UK, so much so that Gallagher's female fans have prompted the singer to consider launching a womenswear range.

"A lot of girls are asking if we will be doing a range for them and the answer to that is yes, once we have got rid of all the lads' stuff," Gallagher declared. When asked about his inspiration for the Pretty Green, he explained, "I’m not into the skinny look — these skinny things. That’s what I’m here for — to fucking get rid of that shit." We wonder what take he'll have on womenswear, then...
