Fashion & Finance Friday!

What is better than waking up to a Friday morning?  HELLLLLOOOOOO Weekend!

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Challenge launched the final leg of it’s competition before the winner unveiling gala in November.  The competition is SUPER COOL this year with the 10 semifinalists each being assigned a city in the U.S. to design an outfit (including a donated makeup palette tailored for each city by main sponsor Maybelline).  The cities include:  Austin, San Francisco, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, Portland, Nashville, Honolulu, and Miami.   All designers will need to BLOW the judges away – no easy feat considering the panel, shown here at the Bowery rooftop patio in NYC.

The CFDA is the organization where Alexander Wang, Jonathan Simkhai, Veronica Beard, Public School and many other designers received their groundbreaking introduction, funding and exposure – this is where American fashion truly incubates!  reversecommuter is psyched to see what the designers deliver…

New Zealand lingerie company Bendon has just switched from one “The Body” to the other “The Body”.  Supermodel Elle Macpherson, the first “The Body” has been replaced by Heidi Klum, also otherwise known as “The Body”.

A few years ago the two supermodels were on less than lovely terms as each attempted to own the nickname.  This shuffle in the lacy undergarment world will most likely not add any warmth to the relationship.

After a 25 year relationship with Elle Macpherson, Bendon at least maintains continuity with supermodel nicknames!

ps a ton of Elle Macpherson’s Intimate lingerie is on sale BIG TIME on the website!!!

Fill the champs flute, do a little lacy, frilly online shopping and ring in the weekend!
