Get Your Facts Straight,

During the round of international fashion shows, not only features entire runway collections, but they also include a section entitled, ‘star sightings’. Though sometimes it’s obvious that the sightings have been slim, and so they have had to resort to using photos of Vogue’s ‘star’ editors like Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley, Hamish Bowles, and Grace Coddington. Well alright, admittedly, they are ‘stars’ in the fashion world (or ‘stars’ at Conde Nast), and there’s nothing wrong with a little self promotion. But I would expect the folks at to at least know the names of celebrities whose pictures they are running. The other day, among the ‘star sightings’ at Chanel, they had not one, but two shots of actor Don Johnson with a woman they only refer to as, ‘friend’. Well, it just so happens, the unknown companion is none other than Don’s wife, Kelly…WWD seemed to have that fact straight when they ran a similar picture. This is not the first time they’ve made these kind of dumb mistakes…tsk, tsk, tsk.
