Surrounded by the colorful gowns of Oscar De La Renta’s 2011 Resort Collection is perhaps the most lusted-after accessory the label has to offer...the Mosaico iPad clutch. Never to be out-shined, Oscar De La Renta has joined the likes of Ferragamo, LV and Gucci in creating their own case for this season’s most popular gadget. The embroidered lambkin clutch is lined in ultra-suede and snaps securely closed. We wonder if Oscar himself is an iPad devotee?! THE DETAILS: OscardelaRenta.com, $290.00

Ed Letter Analysis: Robbie's July Elle Missive

Sometimes, ed letters are just a teensy bit fascinating! Behold a few bon mots from Elle-itrix Robbie Myers, as evidenced on her July 2010 page:

 

I said it. On May 3, I went on the Today show, and in a segments about the winds of change blowing down last season's runways, I uttered the words "[Elle Macpherson] is not a skinny girl." Not skinny as in, not one of the anorexic, near-dead models that Ann Curry and I had just been talking about. But no matter---the blogosphere isolated that sentence and sent it out under such headlines as "Editor of ELLE Hates Fat People." How ironic I was actually praising the presence of an almost 50-year-old demonstrably busty and athletic woman as a hopeful sign in an industry where the models have been way too skiny (definition: underweight). But that's not what the furor was really about. It was about what it was about 15 years ago, when I was an editor at Seventeen, and 10 years ago, when I was at Mirabella: In the "who's responsible for my self-hating body image" debate, there's no debate at all. As New York blogger Amy Odell put it, magazines for women "make us feel bad about ourselves." I wrote to Amy, hoping she might, as a smart writer who's certainly up on popular culture, explore that a little bit on assignment, but she never wrote me back. Alas.
