Donatella Versace Implies Roberto Cavalli’s Clothes Are Pointless; Kate Middleton Lands on Another Best-Dressed List

"Autumn" in Mexican Vogue.

• Donatella Versace on Roberto Cavalli’s designs: “I think that to do a collection — how do you say — as an homage to Versace, this is fine. But when you do a lot of collections as an homage to Versace — why? What’s the point?” [Fashionista]

• Azzedine Alaïa on the pace of fashion: “It’s inconceivable to me that someone creative can have a new idea every two months. Because if I have one new idea in a year, I thank heaven. I pray, I do everything, but God doesn’t always give me ideas. That’s why I’m always late with the collection.” [Stylefile]
