Nelly for Sean Jean + Slowing Mag Sales

*Diddy reveals that his new Sean John underwear model is none other than...
...Nelly. Hm, gimme a sec, let me wipe up that drool. Diddy explains, "[Nelly] has the attitude, the swagger, and most of all the physique that our customers can both aspire and relate to … And let's be honest, all of the ladies out there are going to be thanking us for this campaign." THANK YOU!!!
*WWD reports that Karl Lagerfeld plans to debut a 52 minute documentary...
...directed by Thierry Demaizi√®re and Alban Teurlai. “...Featuring in-depth interviews with Lagerfeld, as well as footage of the designer in action, the film explores his life story, starting with his childhood in Germany” and “sharing memories of his mother”. Hmh. I'm not quite sure how I feel about Karl anymore. After I read on Cut, Sew, and Blog that Chanel shows have only featured two African-Americans over the past 17 collections, I'm tempted to cry foul! Karl is a genius, but something about Karl is now seeming a bit crotchety and old fashioned. Read this post on Cut, Sew, and Blog, and let me know what you think.
*The Blog Chic and Untrobled wonders where the models are after viewing Carla Bruni on the cover of Vanity Fair...
...Good question. The First Lady of France gracing a mag cover, rapper Nelly in an ad campaign. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying. [Chic & Untrobled ]
*Perez sez that magazine sales are way down:
..including lots of fashion pubs. Uh oh. [Perez Hilton]

In her defense she was once a model. I don't think it's a great cover and the comparison to Jackie O is a bit of a stretch. Not because I love Jackie O but Bruni dosen't have any iconic status.
