Truman Says

Yesterday, luxury retailer Barneys seemed to be relishing its time in the spotlight. New York Magazine's fall fashion issue has a story about the store's new CEO, Mark Lee, and his major revamp of the NYC shopping destination.

The TV show Glee burst onto the scene just over two years ago and seemingly became an overnight sensation. Who knew that with network schedules clogged with catty Real Housewives, crystal meth-making science teachers, and slick '50s advertising agents, the enduring frontrunner would be a blend of musical theatre with melodrama that focuses on a clan of high school outsiders.

Um, this is certainly not something we would expect from the beauty-centric magazine Glamour: an insider is tattling to Gawker on a staff member who consistently leaves big #2's in the ladies's room commodes without flushing. Not so glamorous after all.

Anna Wintour's fabricated shop-a-holic holiday, Fashion's Night Out, is happening once again. On the first night of spring 2012 fashion week -- September 8th, less than a month away -- the island of Manhattan will celebrate America's favorite pastime: spending money we don't have on things we don't need. As the date comes ever closer and the anticipation continues to build, details are finally starting to leak.

Sure, September issues are traditionally dedicated to fall fashion. While every glossy this month will surely be dedicated to previewing all the thick cable knit sweaters, heavy, chill-deflecting outerwear, and a plethora of boots, scarves, gloves and hats, our cover boy -- singer and host of NBC's The Voice -- Adam Levine couldn't help but strip down for his photo shoot with us. In his defense, it was shot in the throes of a Los Angeles summer heatwave and if he wanted to show some skin, we weren't going to stop him.

After an annual shareholders meeting for Polo Ralph Lauren Corp., stakeholders in the company decided to drop the "Polo" from the company's name. Dropping the "Polo" is the result of keeping brand consistency that reflects the company's retail presence, with more stores buying the Ralph Lauren mainline rather than the more commercial Polo line.

Congrats to Michael Kors -- again! -- not only is he getting hitched, his company is worth an estimated at $2.5 billion dollars.

In the latest Vanity Fair, Ralph Rucci -- the only US-based couturier -- laments the tragic state of fashion affairs today. He hates collections based on one theme (he mentions anything inspired by Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde) and thinks that the perfect sartorial ensemble is a pair of jeans, a white shirt and black turtleneck. Hm, that sure does sound like Apple mastermind Steve Jobs's perennial uniform.

Girlfriend got married. It was chic. Anna Wintour made sure Vogue was the only one to have access to it. They just released a massive slideshow featuring all the ridiculously fabulous images from the wedding. We love. Wedding season is not over yet, kids.
