Studio 54 aficionados will be taking a page from Grace Jones’ book next fall. The svelte icon will be penning a memoir under Simon & Schuster’s Gallery imprint, recounting her outrageous career and memories with the likes of Andy Warhol, Jerry Hall, and Helmut Newton. [Huffington Post]

Everybody can’t be the boys behind Proenza Schouler, so far as Simon Doonan is concerned. The Asylum author advises emerging fashion designers to discount Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez‘s ascent when mapping out their own trajectory. “The Proenza Schouler arc has created a problem in a way–their graduating collection was bought and sold at Barneys so a lot of kids now think that’s the model to succeed, but it’s really not,” Doonan said. “What you really have to do is go and schlep for someone else for 15 years and then decide if you want to open your own company.” [Fashionista]

In news we saw coming: Playboy has finally confirmed that Kate Moss will be its January 2014 cover girl. “She’s a worldwide celebrity and [icon] and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modeling,” brain behind the bunny ears Hugh Hefner said. “It’s a natural for us.” [Grazia Daily]

New Yorkers may no longer have the option to revel in Fashion’s Night Out, but citizens of the City of Light can.

We all have our impulses, but starting today, we can get a look at designer Whitney Pozgay, restaurateur Michael Chernow, and blogger Meaghan Mahoney Dusil‘s propensities. The three have teamed up with Amazon’s membership-only MYHABIT service for the “This Is MYHABIT” shopping series. Each have curated discounted designer goods for online shoppers looking to get printed, entertain guests, and snatch up a designer bag. [GLAM Inbox]
