AT Tracy Reese, five looks rather fetching – that is her New York City flagship store, which is 4+1 and going strong in a weak economy. The designer is rather fetching, too, particularly in a white, halter-top maxi dress.

Wear any number of way/far over-the-top get-ups in a world where everyone has a camera, Web site and an opinion and you will get noticed by a lot of people, including those who run the fashion world. That would be Anna Wintour and the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designer of America) – in that order

At Monday night’s CFDA awards, the Lady herself was awarded the Fashion Icon Award. Yes, she was. Seems rather premature doesn’t it? … More shortly
