Christian Lacroix: ‘I Didn’t Cry’ and More in the Fall Fashion Issue

Christian Lacroix adjusts his costumes for the "Waltz of the Flowers" at the Nutcracker Ball, the U.K., 1992.

This week's magazine is the one you've been waiting for with bated breath: the Fashion Issue! And to say the stories are mouthwatering is an understatement. Amy Larocca paid Christian Lacroix a visit in Paris to get a firsthand account of the state of his affairs. Andrew Goldman explores the financial quandary that legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz currently has found herself in and wonders, How the hell did this happen? Audrey Tatou, the star of Coco Avant Chanel, explains the cult of Chanel. And lest we leave you without any gossip, Spencer Morgan delves into a modern-day societal fable: the split of Tinsley and Topper Mortimer. Plus, there are trends galore, from leather jackets to LBDs and the power belt. Check out what fall has in store.
