Handbag designer Fiona Kotur Marin tapped into the couture closet of Vogue Japan's Anna Dello Russo for her Kotur Fall 2011 collection bursting with metallic brocades, snakeskin, feathered plumes, sequins, and draped chain-mail and tassels. While perusing the latest Kotur wares, Chic spotted an ostrich feather clutch that also resembled a certain Vogue editor--pre-shave, of course.

Legendary photographer Chuck Close and Diane von Furstenberg sat down for Harper's Bazaar and chatted about the topic that always fascinates: Plastic surgery! You'll never guess who doesn't like it.
DVF: I realize that very often what you hate is what makes you special, but it takes awhile to actually accept it. I personally am attracted by wrinkles because it is the map of your life.
CC: It helps if you’re very beautiful.
DVF: Well … [laughs] if you have good bones and good legs, you can get away with a lot. But nevertheless some people who are not good looking when they are young become better looking with age. You become what you are inside.
CC: Well, you know the conventional wisdom is that women look worse the older they get and men look better the older they get. I don’t believe it’s true, but there is one reason why that cliché has some truth to it. Until recently, men didn’t go after plastic surgery and they were a little more comfortable with aging, whereas women were really trying to move back the clock, erase all that stuff.
DVF: To erase is the horrible thing, because if you erase things in your face, you basically erase souvenirs, you basically erase memory, you basically erase pieces of you that made you. And it’s the layers of your life that give you character.

Because nothing else is going on in the world, Newsweek's cover girl is Kate Middleton, who has something going on at the end of the month that we're sure you'll be hearing about. We're actually OK with this because Kate looks effervescent, and we have a hunch that she will likely outsell Qaddafi. What do you think?

For Bianca Turetsky, art imitated life—albeit in retrospect—on the pages of her first novel for vintage fashion loving, slightly wallflower-y teens like herself. Today's release of The Time-Traveling Fashionista marks a full coming-out of Turetsky's pet project for five years now – though it certainly hasn't been all café-squatting and writing in her pajamas. For the past nine years, Turetsky has assisted Julian Schnabel. But before heading to Schnabel's West Village studio each morning, Turetsky has tapped into her inner preteen in pursuit of a dress for the seventh grade semi-formal with an hour of fictional time travel back to the decks of the Titanic.
So Bianca: what prompted you to write this book?
I got the idea about five years ago, when I was at this vintage store in New Haven called Fashionista Vintage and Variety. It's run by two amazing women who are such characters. They know the stories behind all the pieces there, so I tried on this pink dress that belonged to a woman named Mrs. Baxter, and the owners told me a bit about her life. I was so intrigued, and I just couldn’t shake it. I love how women’s lives and memories are still preserved in some way with vintage clothing. Then I started writing about a fictional Mrs. Baxter in the most extreme situation I could imagine—aboard the Titanic.

Federer to the rescue! Page Six reports that Anna Wintour's pal protected her from that notoriously pesky Miami paparazzi. The deux dined ensemble on Saturday night at Myles Chefet's Prime Italian to celebrate his wife Mirka's birthday. According to a spy, "Federer created a diversion so that Wintour could avoid the paparazzi in front of the restaurant. He and the group exited the side door carrying presents. The photographer ran to the side, but the queen of Vogue was nowhere to be found. One yelled, 'Where's Anna?' Federer took his time loading the car, smiled and went on his way. Anna walked out the front door unnoticed.' Did we just report on an item about absolutely nothing happening?
