In the papers (and on the web)
NYT: For fall, expect eccentricity a la Camilla Nickerson, Vogue's editor at large. Also, Ginia Bellafante delivers a hearfelt appreciation of Helmut Newton. I've always been a huge fan of Newton's--to me, his photography has always been empowering of women, not misogynistic--and it's refreshing to see after all of the "controversial" labels applied to him upon his death last week. Plus: Proenza Schouler's eBay trunk show.

WWD: Hamish Morrow is leaving Krizia and Richard Tyler will design new uniforms for Delta Airlines. Now, as some of you know, I love stewardesses--not "flight attendants," as they've been called for the past 25 years, but stewardesses, the jet-setting hip chicks from the golden era of travel, the '60s and '70s. Stewardesses were hot and worldly, and they wore uniforms designed by Pucci, Bill Blass, and other top designers. Delta's spinoff airline, Song, has uniforms designed by Kate Spade, and Air France has Christian Lacroix, so I think it's great that Delta is following suit.

The Daily: Cool girls are going pixie chic. Plus: Fashion magazines' dress codes, a rather amusing, yet informative, article.
