Simon Doonan—creative ambassador for Barneys New York, general fashion genius and hilarious author—has penned another must-read. The Asylum is a collection of essay’s about the Brit expat’s adventures in fashion (because he’s had a lot of adventures). And the title? A hilarious nod to the fact that he thinks the industry bears more than a little resemblance to a mental institution… (Example: we editors see patterns everywhere, even when there may be none.)
Read it for the behind-the-scenes gossip (like details about that time a ceiling fell on Anna Wintour, why Tom Ford is obsessed with “moist lips,” and that time he called Kate Moss a “working-class slag from a crap town, just like me” in the paper….

Also, read it for charming anecdotes like this one about legendary Vogue editor Polly Mellen: “Though she could be serious, imperious and filled with fashion gravitas, Miss Mellen also loved a good chuckle. My favourite memory of Polly is sitting with her and Carolyn Murphy at the Met Ball—back in the last century, of course—critiquing the couture of the attendees while simultaneously counting the number of times Donatella Versace and Kate Moss minced across the room for a potty break a deux.”

Well, well, well. Of course he does—now that everyone’s into her, so is he. How convenient. Let’s remember when he left her high and dry after the Foamfingergate, K? So not cool. Miley, please. Use some sense. Your bod’s been looking slamming lately, especially when you wore that cotton cat bikini to the AMAs. Your haircut and colour is off the charts. You bleached your brows. You can sing. The ring he gave you the first time was a total letdown. (Too chunky, a bit boring and honestly, it doesn’t really seem to suit your style. You’re totally more of a marquise girl. Or something Art Deco-y). Also, two words:
