WWD Milestones Debuts in Print and iPad

Believe it or not, the editors at Women’s Wear Daily know more about Gucci than anybody whispering – or yelling – in your ear as you walk through Chinatown. Why you’d ever be in Chinatown, we have no idea, but that’s not the point. The point is WWD just launched their newest “Milestone” issue, available in print and on the iPad, and it’s got Gucci completely covered.

The print issue and the app come with tons of information on Gucci in celebration of the label’s 90th anniversary. Some highlights include an extensive look at the Tom Ford and Domenico De Sole era and an interactive Gucci time line on the iPad app.

Go check it out if you’re into Gucci, then next time someone tries to hustle some gear onto you in Chinatown you can yell, “Did you even know that the first Gucci store in America was on West 58th Street???” It’ll be great.

GLAAD Awards: The Paarty Never Ends


The GLAAD Media Awards nominations have been announced, and these selections are a lot more fun than the Oscars or the Golden Globes. Nominated for best wide-release feature is Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, along with Little Miss Sunshine, V for Vendetta, Running With Scissors, and The Night Listener. Borat is not mentioned, not that anyone expected it to be.

Special awards will be presented to Patti LaBelle, Martina Navratilova, Tom Ford, and Spanish language jouranlist and writer Jaime Bayly. Navratilova’s the best tennis player ever, LaBelle’s an icon, Bayly’s received death threats in his native Peru and Ford just released a very stinky perfume, so we’re a tich confused about why Ford gets an award, but whatever. He looks great all dressed up, and that’s what counts at a party.
