Scurrilous rumour or actual fact? We’ve just heard via the medium of Twitter from @Fashion_Dreamer that ‘Apparently.....Janice Dickinson is walking Giles today. That would be 'mazing!!!’ Indeed it would be ‘mazing. But; eh?
Now, before ye drop thy latte all over your keyboard, we should point out that Dicko is definitely in town (and made suitably understated and demure appearances on the FROWs at Westwood and Macdonald yesterday) so it’s entirely possible she’ll be bringing her own brand of shouty glamour to Giles’ runway.
Though she’s more famous for her reality TV exploits these days, it’s easy for us to forget that Janice was one of the biggest models of the 70’s and 80’s and modelled for the likes of Armani, Versace, Valentino, Azzedine Alaïa, Halston, and Calvin Klein when Moss and Campbell were still virtually in nappies. Also, it’s interesting to note that at 56 Janice would be by far the oldest model to take to the catwalks this London Fashion Week.
So watch this space and check back in with us later to discover whether the self proclaimed ‘World’s First Supermodel’ is actually going to make her return to the catwalk tonight or whether this is a more bonkers hoax than the Joaquin Phoenix documentary.
