Kim Kardashian Apparently Has More Selling Power Than Kate Middleton; Tom Ford Wants To Raise His Kids in London

And Andrej Pejic is the first guy ever on the cover of Elle Serbia.

Kim Kardashian Has More Selling Power Than Kate Middleton?: After Kate Middleton wore a dress by Roland Mouret, the designer opened up about it: “The kind of people who like Kate’s style are not the kind to rush out and copy her dress,” he told The Telegraph. “You don’t see hundreds of women running around looking like her. To be honest, we’re more likely to get orders on a dress that Kim Kardashian’s worn.” And as for naysayers of Kate’s decidedly conservative style? “She doesn’t seem to feel the need to dress sexily to woo the world,” Mouret explained, adding that Middleton asked that her dress be made looser than its original sample, “She doesn’t want a bottom situation like Pippa had.” [Telegraph]

Tom Ford Wants To Raise His Kids In London: Tom Ford has opened up to the Times about what his first solo runway show will bring. “This is going to be for 500 to 1,000 people…I want to show in London because I now have 100 stores worldwide. The company has jumped and I can no longer service the stores by not showing.” Ford also acknowledged that he’s interested in raising his kids in London too. “My dram goal is to raise my children here….I love the humor, the formality, the manners, the irreverence in England.” [Fashionista]

Milly Teams Up with Banana Republic: Milly designer Michelle Smith has collaborated with Banana Republic on a 60-piece capsule collection that will hit stores this May. Including designs for both men and women, the collaboration was inspired by “the Hamptons summer feeling of great homes and beautiful beaches,” Banana Republic’s creative director Simon Kneen told WWD.

First Man to Cover Serbian ELLE: Androgynous male model Andrej Pejic has scored his first major magazine cover, fronting this month’s issue of ELLE Serbia. Dressed in Jean Paul Gaultier, the cover is slugged with “Boy who shook the fashion world.” [WWD
