Your morning fashion and beauty report: Fashion's Night Out, nude models and Tilda Swinton

TaviAre you sick and tired of the young, "anti-establishment" presence in the fashion media? Well, tough luck. Tavi, at left, the teenage blogging phenom, will be weighing in during Fashion's Night Out on Sept 10 in New York. New York magazine reports she's coming to the Big Apple with her dad and will be live blogging at Will she be tweeting as well? Oh, yes, she will. [The Cut]

And speaking of New York: Sure, there's a Nordstrom Rack in Manhattan, but now the chain is -- once again -- looking to open a full-price Nordstrom. [Racked NY]

You may be asking, just who is this Whitney Thompson? For starters, she's a "plus size" model and the the winner of "America's Next Top Model," Season 10. What's more, she has taken her clothes off and posed for the camera (for "Love Your Body Day"). We're not suggesting that you're a voyeur, but just in case..... [Huffington Post]

Do you like Tilda Swinton? (We thought so.) We think she's sublime as well, and our opinion is shared by Pringle's of Scotland, which is hoping they can keep the actress as its muse for another season. [Vogue UK]

First, the wedding details... and now the rings! See the photos of the fingers of newlyweds Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin. [People]

Environmentally friendly, rock 'n' clothing? Why not? Chrissie Hynde (58) and her much younger boyfriend (33) are launching a line. (Don't worry, the leather is fake.) She's got a pretty cool vegan restaurant in Akron, Ohio, too. [Style List]

Well, youth like Tavi should be praised and supported in their efforts to embrace and codify fashion and art for their peers. I appreciate her effort.

Austin Texas Fashion week was extremely successful because of the participation of the youth. See more at:

Any way, I appreciate young artists and those embracing the art of the moment because art IS noble.
