It's not all doom and gloom for the Lohans. Despite LiLo's spiralling career younger sister, Ali's career is on the up. Today Just Jared revealed that the 17 year-old has bagged a multi-year contract with Next Model Management in LA.
Although her modelling career is limited to appearing in her sister's 6126 campaign, it looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of her in the months to come. After all, Next are responsible for making the careers of models like Arizona Muse and Karlie Kloss so if anyone can take her career to the next level, it's them. “We are very excited to be representing Aliana Lohan," a rep from the agency said when the news was announced. "She represents the future face of fashion and will be a photographer’s dream with her chameleon-like beauty.”
The big questions is whether we'll see the young model on the international runways come September? Only time will tell....
As you know, we're really big fans of Carine Roitfeld and the whole Restoin-Roitfeld brood so you can imagine our delight when these images hit my inbox today.
Until now we all thought that Roitfeld would appear in the Barneys campaign alone but the former Vogue Paris editor has been joined by her children Vladimir and Julia in the Fall 2011 campaign and Natasha Poly makes a surprise appearance. Roitfeld got decked out in Rick Owens and Julia sported a sexy two piece number from the Givenchy collection.
She and Lee didn't get on. Lee had offended her at the party where I first met her and Amy never forgave him. When he sent her a dress to say sorry she put it on the barbecue. She also spat on one of his dresses at Selfridges which she had to pay for because she had soiled it. At first she refused then she just said, 'Fine - but tell Alexander McQueen I ruined his dress'."

Anne Hathaway was a busy lady yesterday. Early on in the day she wore this black corseted dress with gold detail around the bust to the premiere of her latest movie, 'One Day'. Later on in the evening she slipped into something less severe choosing this beige dress with satin ivory heels at a party celebrating the launch of the movie, as well as her recent Harper's Bazaar cover.
The B.D.L. committee seemed to make an effort to broaden the list, not quite banishing obvious socialites and actresses but nearly so. I was glad to see, among others, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge; Christine Lagarde; Jenson Button; Colin Firth; and Shala Monroque. But Princess Charlene of Monaco was a stretch. Her style to me is something of a flat pancake, despite (or perhaps because of) the effort she applies. It’s hard to say the B.D.L. isn’t relevant in a style-shaping era, but does it ultimately offer us enough information?
You've all heard about the subtly sexualised images of 10 year-old Thylane Loubry Blondeau in the current issue of Vogue Paris. The images have caused an outcry, particularly in America, with many criticising the magazine for what they think is an obvious sexualisation of a child. The Parisian press, on the other hand, don't seem to understand what the hoopla is all about brushing it off as another example of American sensitivity.
Whatever side of the fence you sit on, it's important to discuss the issue. After all, isn't this just a step further from the ongoing trend favouring pre-pubescent teens in the fashion industry? For years campaigns and magazine covers have been full of young underdeveloped girls in sexualised poses so was it not inevitable that we would end up here?
Don't get me wrong, I'm a big a fan of Tyra Banks as the next person, but she left me disappointed on Sunday night at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. Something about a skin tight black catsuit in broad daylight at a teen event doesn't sit well with me but according to her, she was channeling a "fierce bumble bee."
