Devout Terry Richardson aficionados will recall a few years ago when Jared Leto's best boo released Leto's driver's license photo for the pleasure of trillions, and now...Richardson's high school ID has been unearthed by Terry himself! Yup, that's our special guy at Hollywood High School (who knew?) circa 1980, in tenth grade with hair on his head, no glasses, and dreams in his heart. BUT WHERE'S THE PLAID SHIRT?

Lana Del Rey may be dividing peeps across the globe (We enjoy! Be a lover!), but love/hate can't deny that she's everywhere these day with no plans to vanish. In London tonight she hit the red carpet for the BRIT awards (that's essentially their Grammy awards) in a red Vivienne Westwood gown that matched the carpet, and the UK flag. Lovely! In other across the pond awards news, Adele ended up taking home the BRIT for British female solo artist beating out Jessie J, Florence + the Machine, Kate Bush and Laura Marling. And that shocks who?

There's more than just McQueen, Westwood and Burberry in London this week! A model across the pond hit the runway today at the Meadham Kirchoff show in this colorful ensemble that's sure to brighten up your 2012 Autumn. (Go for the blue face if you've got the balls!) Trying to figure out which leading lady will get dibs on this for the next tapis rouge results in a bit of head-scratching... Meryl? Viola?

Aww alert! Christopher Bailey always has something unexpected up his sleeve, and yesterday he brought a rainstorm inside the show space for Burberry Prorsum's Fall 2012 collection. The models needed umbrellas...but what about the front row? Come on, guys.

The highlights of NYFW, continued! Next up: Claire Danes (gosh, is the crazily talented actress crazily pretty—and chatty!—in person!) at, and on, Narciso Rodriguez...

We’re so happy to see you!
I’ve grown up with Narciso. I met him when I was 16. He’s a huge influence on my life and a dear friend. I love him deeply. He’s a smart cookie…and I always feel like I can kick some ass in a Narciso dress. What could be better?

What’s the most poignant Narciso memory from all those years?

Well, he made my wedding dress, so I don’t think you can really top that. Narciso embroidered his name secretly into the dress, which was such a nice detail. 

What were you like as a teenager?
I was a total nerd then. I’m a nerd now, but I’m just better-dressed.

Yo, Yoana!

Catching up with darling designer Yoana Baraschi on buzzy department store action, opting out of the catwalk grind, and low-carb cooking prowess!

What’s new?
Everything!  My oldest daughter is going to college, and my line is growing. There’s something in the pipeline with a major department store that I’ll be able to speak about in March. Top secret. But, in the meantime, we’re also expanding our cashmere scarf line. We’re having tremendous success at Henri Bendel’s.

What’s your hiring strategy?
I’ve had experts draw up the astrological charts of potential employees in the past, but I failed miserably. I still believe in astrology, but I just think of it now in terms of potential rather than realization.

Why did you decide not to show at Fashion Week this season?
I’m still self-financed at the moment, so I want to continue on this path of refining my product instead of focusing on a runway show. It’s really working for me right now. We’re top sellers in all our stores. But we did have a gorgeous penthouse luncheon in October for top editors while we shot the lookbook. People felt less pressure to be there and really enjoyed it.

What inspired your Fall collection?
It’s all about color and how different shades respond to each other. The emotion that color provokes runs deep. It’s also based on the spirit of collage and texture.

What’s your color du jour?
Since I work with so much color, I tend to wear neutrals. Especially as a female designer, if you’re going to try your clothes on during the day, you need a grounding base to provide a subdued background.

How are you staying so cheery this winter?
I’m taking Vitamin D supplements and using a happy lamp—you know, the ones with the UV rays that mimic the sun. I have an amazing heater under my desk that brings the room temperature to 80 degrees. I try to overheat myself since I can’t stand the cold.

What’s your favorite winter soup?
Cream of leek. I make it at home from my own recipe without the potatoes. I don’t like too many carbs!

Does your beauty routine change in the colder months?
Yes! I apply Helena Rubinstein moisturizing cream three times a day for a glowy shine, and I wash my hair every 10 days so it doesn’t get overdried.
