Suzy Menkes.

Fashion writer Suzy Menkes commented on the surge of Internet fashion coverage and blogs when she spoke at the Academy of Art in San Francisco this week. "I think it's terrific that there are bloggers," she said. (And, ahem, we agree.) She continued: "But you have to keep up with the standards of fashion journalism today. Not everyone's writing is equal." So what can you do to step up to the plate? "Be curious and be accurate," she advised. Curiously enough, we quoted her exactly and accurately.
