This is essential reading, and has left me panting with excitement. Just the Steven Meisel profile by Jonathan Van Meter The Godfather is well worth the $8.90 price of May's Vogue, plus the cab fare to and from Kinokuniya. It's truly a rare treat. Now what is it about model girls that keeps me giddy with delight (everyone except Agyness)? What do you think of the cover? Where's Claudia, Stephanie, Shalom? This should keep people talking for a while I think. The story on Marc Jacobs, honorary chair of the Met's May "blockbuster" The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion at the Costume Institute tries hard to portray Mr Jacobs as some sort of fashion visionary, and fails. Try reading this patchy piece of typing. At best, Mr Jacobs is a moderately attractive gay man (argueable, I know) awash in LVMH euros. Won the lottery? Big time. Fashion talent? So seriously not it's not funny.
