Since she was one of fifteen bridesmaids at the supermodel's wedding last weekend to Jamie Hince, model agents have agreed that the 13-year-old sister to Kate Moss is, well, fabulousssss! The pretty blonde, Lottie Moss, "is already showing signs that she will follow in her sister's footsteps," British Vogue blogs. Her mom says, "She's too young. When she's old enough it will be her decision."
"Lottie looks beautiful and fresh — a very English rose look," Premier Models founder Carole White told the Evening Standard. "Her mother is quite right to wait until she is 14 and has developed more but she has wonderful features and could definitely make a model. Generally you need the height. Kate is the exception to the rule because models need to be 5ft 9in to 5ft 11in. I think Lottie would make a lovely young model."
In the modeling world there is a wealth of development between the ages of 13 and 14. Little Lottie already models vintage clothing for the family store, apparently. So seems like her decision has already been made.

Critics panned the Christian Dior cartoon couture that walked in Paris yesterday, suggesting that the house simply cannot produce a stellar couture collection without a head designer. One wonders if Dior and LVMH will try to hurry up the hire in advance of the label's ready-to-wear show, which is just about a couple months away. At the couture show — perhaps before he read the reviews this morning — Dior CEO Sidney Toledano spoke to AFP about replacing Galliano:
"You know when you ask young girls all the time when they are going to get married, they reply: When I find the right man," he told AFP as the Paris fashion house sent out its first post-Galliano haute couture collection. Dior — crown jewel of French tycoon Bernard Arnault's global luxury goods empire — will "take all its time" in finding "a long-term solution", Toledano said, adding: "All options are open for the future."
Sounds like Bill Gaytten, Galliano's right-hand man overseeing design right now, might not be a shoo-in. Whatever happens, he has quite the temp job right now.
So, according to Elle's Market Editor, Joann Pailey, people at the Paris couture shows are saying that models Arizona Muse and Freja Beha Erichsen are dating. If that's true, then they're almost certainly the most attractive couple in the world, Brangelina be damned.
The modeling duo has been making plenty of appearances on magazine covers (the girls shared the cover of Vogue Italia in January and Numero in March) and at photographers' studios. Arizona and Freja posed for an intimate portrait spread by Terry Richardson and got some snapshots done by Karl Lagerfeld. It's pretty ridiculous that it took us all so long to realize that they were together.
Christian Lacroix — the designer who lost his label in the recession, not the label that forges ahead without him — has teamed up with Spanish brand Desigual on a heavily-patterned and embellished — veritably collaged, even — line of clothes and accessories for this coming fall. Fashionista has a first look at some of the pieces in the collection, which include chunky knitwear, furry boots, and baseball caps with fuzzy pom-poms on the sides that look like teddy-bear ears. There are also some of Lacroix's annotated design sketches, in case you were wondering where such ideas came from. The line will be in Desigual stores across Europe next week, but U.S.-based customers may still be able to purchase merch online. WHEW!
