Miranda Kerr Breastfeeds Enormous Monster Baby

  • Meet Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom‘s 12-day-old son, Flynn! He weighed 9lbs 12oz at birth, and Kerr says passing that giant was “a long, arduous and difficult labour.” She nonetheless said no thanks to pain meds. [Kerr’s Blog]
  • Kim Cattrall is the new face of Olay’s Total Effects anti-aging bullshit. [StyleList]
  • Michael Kors, on his dream designer collaboration: “I want a deal with In-N-Out Burger — to do a special sauce or a wrapper. I’m horseradish-obsessed!” [LATimes]
  • Kors snapped up the Rockefeller Center space soon to be vacated by Kenneth Cole. [WWD]
  • Nicola Formichetti, who shows his first collection as creative director of Thierry Mugler tonight in Paris, says, “I’m not here to re-create what he did. It was perfect for the time. I’m going to do something for today and the future.” Lady Gaga is the “musical director” and will debut a remix of a new track from her forthcoming album at the show, but she is not expected to attend. To reflect the revived label’s change in direction, the clothing label will be just “Mugler,” while the perfumes (including mega-successful Angel) will remain “Thierry Mugler.” [WWD]
  • Britain’s Daily Mirror has won a final victory in its long-running court case with Naomi Campbell. After the Mirror published photographs of Campbell leaving a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, she sued for invasion of privacy, and won damages, plus court costs. The Mirror appealed, and had the portion of the verdict pertaining to Campbell’s legal fees overturned by the European Court of Human Rights, which apparently had no more pressing matters to attend to that session, on the grounds that Campbell was wealthy enough that she could afford to pay for her own lawyers. Rare is it that we feel any twinge of sympathy for the blood-diamond-happy self-pitying supermodel, but this actually seems kind of shitty. She doesn’t get her legal fees comped by the party that did her wrong, just because she’s rich? And the Mirror‘s not? [NYPost]
  • Ryan McGinley shot Benjamin Millepied for his second Club Monaco campaign in a row. Among those joining the dancer/Portman baby-daddy are Lauren Hutton, Lou Doillon, Tali Lennox, and Dash Snow‘s widow, Jade Berreau. [WWD]

  • Alexander Wang is, for the first time, paying magazines to print a picture of his choosing — a picture of a model wearing something that Wang designed and paid to have styled and shot. He’s putting this same picture on billboards, too. (Actually, to be technical about it, Wang did this once before, but only for his T by Alexander Wang sub-brand. This is for the main collection.) But don’t call this an “ad campaign”! This is just a weird little experiment Alexander Wang thought up all by himself! He calls it an “image piece.” “It’s about testing the waters and doing something out of the box,” says the designer. [WWD]
  • Jessica White, who was arrested last October on an assault charge, has been awarded American culture’s highest honor: A reality show on the Oxygen network. [P6]
  • Well, that was quick: On Friday, a job posting popped up on MediaBistro, seeking applicants for the position of managing editor at JanePratt.com, a forthcoming publishing venture from the former Sassy and Jane editor (who was once so ruthlessly mocked on Daria). Yesterday, Vice managing editor Amy Kellner announced on Twitter that she was hired. You can now commence pitching her, underpaid fashion media drones. [@Teenageunicorn]
  • Leandra Medine of the hilarious Man Repeller blog is styling, and modeling in, Kimberly Taylor‘s next lookbook. (It’ll be divided into two sections: Man-Repelling and Man-Getting.) Medine is also hosting Taylor‘s upcoming fashion show. [Refinery29]

  • Target, which wants to expand into Canada, is suing the owner of two stores that already exist in Canada under the name “Target Apparel.” Target Apparel is counter-suing; both seek exclusive rights to the Target name in Canada. [WWD]
  • Jimmy Choo is getting into men’s shoes. [Telegraph]
  • Oh, sadness. The Bieber store in Los Angeles isn’t going to happen. Where will we buy our Bieber shoelaces now? [Vogue UK]
  • American Apparel‘s latest ad features a sex doll, naturally. [Copyranter]
  • The technology now exists to build programmable, robotic dress forms that morph into different body shapes and try on clothing. This might help with online shopping, but mostly the roboform is freaky looking. [Vogue UK]
  • Meanwhile, you can buy this sweatshirt printed with Karl Lagerfeld‘s face. It appears to be one-size-fits-all. [Modekungen via Racked]
  • Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana did a shoot with Terry Richardson where they ate pasta and put tomatoes on their noses. [@Stefanogabbana]
