London Fashion Week is about to be a quarter-century old! (Insert joke here about quarter-life crises.) For its 25th anniversary, Elle UK is sponsoring a huge ad campaign, which went up today in tube stations all over the city. Having commissioned 25 designers to make posters, it’s clear the magazine gave the artists free reign on what they could dream up, because most don’t even reference Fashion Week. Matthew Williamson’s design features a tie-dye print; Mulberry came up with a crafty “Love” slogan with a peace sign as the O; Paul Smith’s illustration features different colored hangers intertwined in a squiggly mess.
What we’re really finding awesome, however, is Henry Holland’s take (above), “25 yrs of L.F.W. and all you get is this lousy poster,” which inadvertently pokes fun at London Fashion Week’s struggle to keep up with Paris and New York. Check out some of the other Elle posters after the jump! [Elle UK] Keep reading »

So, the editors don’t actually have time to stop and sip them, but all kinds of somehow-got-in-the-door-but-why-are-they-here? types in the tents are swilling free booze in between doing whatever it is they’re doing in there. What are they drinking? We know we’ve spotted Moet here and there, but the harder stuff is Akvinta Vodka, the official sponsor of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The cocktail they’re serving is called the “Gold Cooler” and it actually sounds really good. Just for fun — it’s always happy hour somewhere! — we thought we’d share the recipe, after the jump.

It’s the bottom of the 8th inning, and Kate Hudson is checking her watch. Clearly, she’s had enough of waiting for her man A-Rod to finish up at the NY Yankees versus LA Angels game. Wonder if he’s as patient with her, uh, job? [New York, 9/15/09] Keep reading »
“I was holding it together by a string and a paper clip in the fall and winter. I didn’t know if I could keep it all together… You console yourself by saying it’s all a deepening process. But it’s wired. After the first year, the pain is less intense; it’s less immediate. But the magical thinking goes away too. And that’s a whole new reckoning. But every time I really miss him and wonder where he’s gone, I just look at [Mathilda.] …
‘Brokeback Mountain’ was an unrepeatable moment in time, a very charmed time in my life. I was in love; I was in a movie I was proud to be a part of, and with a beautiful brand-new baby. Everything was good in that moment ….
I feel hopeful and grateful. For a while I thought we had lost everything. It makes you want to love better and live better.”
