John Varvatos will show his Spring 2009 Collection in Milan. He's probably just tired of everyone bitching about taking over the CBGB's space and turning it into a museum of the East Village's gentrification.  [FWD]

Here's a shocker: Designers are trading in celebrity faces and choosing *actual* models for their ad campaigns this fall. Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Prada, Versace, YSL, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Escada will all feature catwalking waifs in their ads. Perhaps people are tired of celebrities? or maybe they just got too expensive? or maybe it they are fed up that celebrities can't fit in sample sizes. After all, when John Travolta is the face of your watch brand, you know you're scraping the bottom of the barrel. [FWD]

Richie Rich will launch a line for Hot Topic called Celebutante.  But his BFF and Heatherette partner in crime Traver is not part of the project. "He didn't want to do it," says Richie. Is this another sign of the Heatherette apocalypse? [Fashionista]

A Chanel Fly Fishing Rod? Could this be the ultimate meeting of classy and trashy? What's next? A Chanel Airstream? [The Cut]

Francis Ford Coppola and daughter Sofia star in Louis Vuitton's latest ad campaign. Wait, what happened to no celebrities? [The Cut]
