Watch out, Brad G.! The darling star of It's A Brad, Brad World isn't the only former Rachel Zoe assistant to strike out with a solo small screen show. Ex-Zoe disciple Taylor Jacobson scooped up her own moment in the reality TV spotlight, thanks to LA Style, debuting on Oxygen later in 2012. Jacobson will dash around doing her madcap stylist thang along with three other Hollywood star dressers. Let's all hope all three hours of red carpet conundrums and photo shoot drame are not on at the same time. Chic's only got one TiVo to program...

Adieu, Kardashian Mag...

It ended before it even began! Kardashian fiends ought to be having a moment of silence for the American Media-published mag about the most press-adoring family, well, ever. Today, Page Six reported that the fan-satiating glossy, set to be cranked out by the folks behind titles including Star, National Enquirer, and Shape, has been axed before Kimmy, Khlo and Kourt junkies even had a single issue to drool over. Apparently, momager extraordinaire Kris Jenner is to blame, since she wouldn't waver from her demand for editorial approval of the whole shebang. We'll refrain from making the inevitable crack at the length of the mag's run compared to a certain quickie marriage...

Cindy Crawford's mini me, Kaia Gerber, scored her first modeling gig with the House of Versace. (Hip hop hurray!) The 10-year-old doppleganger posed pretty for Young Versace's first ad campaign shot by famed fashion snappers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot. The new line, for kiddies 0-12, will debut tomorrow in Florence at Pitti Immagine Bimbo. “Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift,” said Donatella Versace in a company statement. “The camera really, really loves her. Having Cindy on-set for the shoot took me back to all the amazing Avedon shoots we worked on together. It was such a special treat watching Kaia walk in her mother’s footsteps!”

From The Daily Berlin! A Moment With...Alan Cumming

The British actor (and Daily fave) does Deutsch like a native. When we were beckoned to Berlin, naturally, we demanded his advice!

What can we expect from the Germans?
German people are darling. They aren’t as initially outgoing, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t friendly. There doesn’t seem to be such a class division of the chi-chi people and the non-chi-chi people. In fact, desirable aesthetic is to not look chi-chi and wealthy. There aren’t that many cupcakes.

Cupcakes?
Cupcakes are an allegory for a frothy, sweet, empty, and showy food, but they’re not good for you, and they’re not that pretty. 

When did you last visit Berlin?
The summer of 2009 for a BBC documentary about the real cabaret and performers at the Weimar. Berlin is fantastic!

Was that your first time there?
No. In 2000, I spent a month there shooting an Alan Rudolph movie called Investigating Sex. My obsession with Berlin has been fueled by this daily e-mail I get from sugarhigh.de about the interesting exhibitions and restaurants.

What was your first impression of Berlin?
Bleak chic. It’s full of pale, tall, skinny people. And people have made art in incredible places where you’d never normally find it.

Thoughts on German fashion?
Bold! The stuff I’ve seen in Berlin is more artist-led than market-led, and therefore it’s more interesting to me.

Will the shows start on time?
I’m sure they won’t. Fashion people the world over are absolutely manically incapable of starting anything on time. Although if anywhere would start on time, it would be Germany.

Describe German humor.  
It’s a little more obtuse, and slightly risqué. Germans are very aware of the image they project as Germans. They like being ribbed about being German, I think.

Your  X-Men character was German, and you starred in Cabaret…Why are you cast in so many German roles?
It’s a domino effect!

What do you love most about Berlin?  
My favorite thing is the attitude towards sex. It’s very frank. There’s no shame about it. You know how you go to a bar, meet someone, and have sex with them? I had that experience completely in reverse.

Favorite German word, please.
Liebling. It means darling.
