On the show, Chioma and I check in with Cara to see how she is doing and to get her reaction to her Vogue cover; as she Zooms in from the kitchen of her house in Los Angeles, you can hear her rescue dogs barking in the background. She tells us about the intervention by two of her closest friends that catalyzed her decision to seek help, how and when she turned to substance abuse during her young adulthood, and her documentary series for Hulu, Planet Sex. She also shares some pearls of wisdom about understanding your sexuality and your boundaries, such as “No is a full sentence” and “Blue balls are not a thing.” Who needs Emily Post?!
Also on this week are Eugénie Trochu, editorial director for Vogue France, and Pierre M’Pelé, editorial director for GQ France, to give us their review of le chic from Paris Fashion Week. In a surprise twist, they tell us emphatically, “Milan crushed Paris.” It’s a sentiment rarely heard: Milan Fashion Week, typically the sleepy interlude between New York and Paris, was shaken up this season by big debuts at Ferragamo and Bottega Veneta. As far as Paris is concerned, though both Pierre and Eugénie gush over Ib Kamara’s Off-White show and Miu Miu’s “mom on the run” energy (plus sparkling underwear!), Eugénie says her runway-inspired purchases next season will include a Saint Laurent blazer and a Gucci horsebit Jackie bag. Pierre says he was moved by the return of soignée dressing at houses like Balmain: “Put on a glamorous outfit, even if it’s just to get a baguette!” the dapper Pierre implores. And with that, bon appetit!
