    Is Agyness the "visual articulation" of our times? Really?

    - As if Agyness Deyn needed any more fanfare, The New York Times has unleashed a massive article crowning her "the visual articulation of our culture's unspoken hopes and latent desires." Good gracious. Oh, and those rumors she's leaving modeling? Definitely false. [The New York Times]

    - What brought Mickey Rourke out of his 20-year hiatus from fashion week to attend Jean Paul Gaultier couture show? "Jean Paul made me and my dog really nice outfits for the Academy Awards." Aw. [Chic Report]

    - Are you tired of hearing about what Michelle Obama is wearing? On the heels of a completely fanfare-less visit to Russia, some blogs are wondering if it's the lack of sparkles or just "MObama clothing fatigue." [Fashionista]

    - The constant rain in June was so depressing, it even had a tangible effect on retail. [WWD]

    - Remember when Paulina Porizkova got the boot from "America's Next Top Model"? Well, revenge is a dish best served in writing. She's officially blogging about her firing for Modelinia and HuffPo. [The Cut]

    - The jewelry that went missing after Lindsay Lohan's photo shoot for Elle last month was initially valued at $400,000, but is actually worth closer to $38,500. Not that we ever expected the fashion set to be great at math, but seriously? [NY Daily News]
