9am news: Anna Wintour nowhere to be seen at the couture shows, plus your shoe handbook for summer

08 July 2009

Couture Week is in full swing over in Paris, but despite the likes of Carine Roitfeld, Grace Coddington and Hamish Bowles in attendance, US Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour is nowhere to be seen. Well, there is a magazine to be run, don't you know... [NY Mag]

We bet she's gutted to have missed this one, though. The world's smallest couture show took place on Monday, where Adeline André showed just one look for women and one for men to the waiting press across the Channel, with pieces first being pegged to a clothesline before the models put them on to showcase their design. Now that's what we call minimalism. [WWD]

Meanwhile, supermodel Coco Rocha shows us all why she's everyone's favourite Canadian. Just check out this video of her dancing with Daddy Rocha on You Tube. Who said partying with your parents was embarrassing... [YouTube]

Over in the US, Lindsay Lohan is in a spot of bother over her tanning line Sevin Nyne. Turns out her claims that she invented the formula for her spray tan are false, and she's now looking at a serious lawsuit. Yikes. [Digital Spy]

And finally, if you're caught between gladiator sandals and platforms with all the shoes on the high street, never fear. Shudoo.co.uk has come up with the first Summer Shoe Handbook, with experts from the fashion world sharing all their styling tips. Happy shopping! [Shudoo]
