9AM News: Anna Wintour breaks all the fashion laws, plus Gisele's baby bump!

30 July 2009

Anna Wintour 

Fresh from sporting flat shoes, Anna Wintour is causing even more controversy today. First, she suggested a restriction should be placed on US retailers to stop them discounting clothes too early and, when told it was illegal, replied with: ‘Is that something we can change? We have friends in the White House now.' And second: she made someone cry by criticising them for wearing too much black. [NY Post, Fashionologie]

But here's why your ‘let's call the White House' plan might run into trouble, Anna. According to his personal aide, President Obama is a ‘very low-maintenance guy. He's incredibly easy to work for. There aren't any Devil Wears Prada moments whatsoever.' [Politico]

We know what it's like when you finally find a dress you like. But we don't think that means you have to blow £2,000 on 12 identical versions of the same dress. Listen up, Nigella. [Daily Mail]

She might have had her baby bump airbrushed out of the London Fog advert, but looks like Gisele's not afraid of baring all on the beach. Oh, and she's definitely pregnant then... [NY Magazine]

Salvatore Ferragamo menswear designer Massimiliano Giornetti will now also design the women's collection as well. He'll start when current designer Cristina Ortiz leaves the house after her Spring 2010 show in Milan this September, after disagreements with the Ferragamo family about her collections. [WWD]
