Fashion Week Buzz: Day 4

Lesson 1: Canada is the New Brazil

Casting agent James Scully, who worked with Kevin Krier this season:

"Canada is the new Brazil this season for models. Daria at IMG is from Canada, so is Heather Mark from Supreme. Daria's the biggest star of the new girls right now: she's a model's model, like Linda Evangelista. She's doing Marc, Zac and all of my shows. Jessica Stam (who goes by Stam) of IMG is from Canada; she's in every show this season. So is Gemma (IMG), who people are booking without even seeing.?

Lesson #2: Anna Wintour Loves Dead Animals

Lookonline's Marilyn Kirschner writes of Anna on Sunday evening, "Anna Wintour looking exceptionally wonderful in a chinchilla jacket."

Anna at Kenneth Cole on Friday, as described by Fashionweekdaily's Tanya Jensen, "Anna Wintour in a knee-length leopard coat and freshly done spring highlights."

Don't be a stranger: we can be like two ships passing in the night: like two models passing on the catwalk: send your votes for what you think Anna's next dead animal will be to:
