The beautiful "Russian Rapunzel" model Ruslana Korshunova, 20, committed was is apparently suicide yesterday. Investigators believe that she jumped from her ninth story baconey in the financial district of New York.

An article from the New York Post reads,

"I heard what sounded like a gunshot or a bomb or an explosion," said a stunned Con Ed worker talking to a cop nearby. "I looked down the street, and I say to the cop, 'Did that person just get hit by a car?' " said the worker, who identified himself only as Patrick, 32, of Brooklyn. The two men raced over. "Her arms were crushed," Patrick said. "Her head was on the left side and blood was coming out in a pool."

She was a beautiful model and the industry will be missing a piece without her.

Rumors are circulating that Agyness Deyn and Strokes' lead guitarist, Albert Hammond, Jr. are an item. New York Magazine states that while attending the Songwriters Hall of Fame Awards -

"First the two unabashedly engaged in public displays of affection on the red carpet — an embrace here, a kiss on the cheek there."

We shall see...

No, No, No

One of my favorite fashionable Brits, Amy Winehouse, has found herself in a little bit of trouble once again... but she just wouldn't be who she is without that trouble huh? Reports say she has been diagnosed with emphysema for what her father says is her use of crack cocaine.

A Change of Scenery

It appears that hockey player turned Vogue intern will be making quite the appearance at the couture shows this year. He will be at all of them. As he puts it,

"It doesn't get bigger or better than Paris couture, right?"

Dresses Dresses Everywhere

One of my favorite actresses/singer, Zooey Deschanel, talks dresses and fashion inspiration in this short video from

Shoe Mania

I'm loving this new show airing on It's called FN shoe star (FN as in Footwear News magazine) and the episodes are quick 10 minute pieces in which contestants create different shoes and show them off to judges (guest judges so far have included Steve Madden, Pat Fields and more)

The last episode is yet to air but I have my hopes set on Ryan.

Driving School with Lagerfeld

While Karl Lagerfeld may control the streets of fashion, who knew he was controlling the streets of, well, France? Not really, but he is bringing awareness to drivers to wear a bright colored vest when driving at night. The ad, in French, reads

"It's yellow, it's ugly, it doesn't go with anything, but it could save your life."

So would Lagerfeld wear this or his driver?

A Night with Knightley

I've been noticing Keira Knightley alot recently. While she's been in the tabloids a lot recently under reports of allegedly being anorexic (and i must say she is looking quite skinny...) It's the glamour that has struck me the most. She's really transformed from the sporty Bend it like Beckham star we once knew. I especially adore the Chanel pantsuit she wore at the premiere of her new film (in which she sings) The Edge of Love.

Not your MoMa's Party

Many turned out for the Musuem of Modern Art Party. My two favorite looks were the classic Claire Danes and the always hip M.I.A.

Living the Urban Life

I popped into Urban Outfitters yesterday and was pleasantly surprised with their selection of fabulous sandals. The clothes this time around were so-so but I have an obsession with sandals and it's hard to resist these!

Can it be?

I noticed a little something the other day...

So while Lindsay Lohan may be walking tall in her Balenciaga gladiator heels, she also appears to be rocking what? Urban Outfitter flats?
