SUPERMODEL SAVES THE DAY

It's a bird... It's a plane... It's... Linda! Linda Evangelista, that is. She's saving non-couture brands, one photo shoot at a time. Evangelista is the supermodel to the super stars - Prada, Hermes, Dolce & Gabbana, YSL, Chanel, Escada, Oscar de la Renta... oh yes, and Ann Taylor. In 2005, Evangelista was the face of the Ann Taylor makeover, and now, Talbots is seeking out her wattage to spare yet another bourgeoisie brand from the brink. It's a gorgeous campaign. Kuddos to Talbots' (and to Linda, who at 45, is actually the age of Talbots customers!).

LOVING these new Talbots looks! Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!

Go Talbots.

Sadly, I once had a leopard sheath dress, which I got rid of after someone called me Pebbles and asked where was Bam Bam.

However, I still have my faux-fur collars, which also featured heavily in the new Talbot's catalog.

I may be biased (she was incredibly rude to me once in my retail-working-youth)... but i can't get past the fact that she can't seem to take a photograph without her mouth hanging open.
