Fashion News: Gucci goes Gatsby for Milan Fashion Week

September 22, 2011 |  8:32 am

"The Great Gatsby" seems to have inspired the clothes Gucci sent down the runway as Milan Fashion Week opened Wednesday.  Glitz, glamour, fringe and dropped waists. [Telegraph]

YSL signed Emily Blunt as the new face of Opium -- by which we mean the fragrance created in 1977 by perfumer Jean-Louis Sieuzac and presented in flacon by legendary bottle designer Pierre Dinand. [Telegraph]

I find it hard to believe Lindsay Lohan has time to work, what with all the arrests, court hearings and rehab she seems to have endlessly going on in her life. But it was announced Wednesday that she'll be the celebrity face of Philipp Plein's spring ad campaign.  [Stylelist] 

The Duchess of Cambridge has been notably absent from this and other fashion blogs for the last few days. She's reportedly in princess camp, learning how to be a royal. [The Cut]

Vogue Editor Anna Wintour persuaded European editor Hamish Bowles to audition for "The X Factor." (By "persuaded," we mean that she told him via e mail she had signed him up to do it.) He went along with it -- had he a choice? -- and auditioned by singing Britney Spears' "Oops, I Did It Again."  Bowles lived to write about it for the magazine's October issue. [Racked]

KTZ creation Seen on the London runways: Does the look shown here  remind anyone else of Princess Leia? It was among the stylings at KTZ's show on Wednesday as London Fashion Week was ending. The show seemed to run heavily to bondage-inspired clothing, as best I could tell.
