This New York Fashion Week, some of fashion’s finest will be tapping into tech. Project Runway powerhouse Nina Garcia is taking a cue from Diane von Furstenberg and will be sporting Google Glass for September’s shows. “I’m not going to say it came so easily,” she told Women’s Wear Daily about adapting to the hands-free device. “Usually I have lots of devices during fashion week. Google Glass Expedition is controlled by your voice or a tap of your finger… I can go to a show and just be and not be looking down at my iPhone all the time.” [WWD]

The future Mrs. Adam Levine is serving va-va-voom, Victoria’s Secret style. Behati Prinsloo let us in to the VS Beauty Lab where she offered a step-by-step guide on imitating the brand’s beauty look for its new fragrance Victoria. [ELLE]

Speaking of appealing Angels, Prinsloo’s fellow VS seductress Doutzen Kroes shed her wings for classic Chanel. She graced her fifth Vogue cover of 2013 in an ethereal look from the fashion house, this time for her native Netherlands. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Finally! Mademoiselle C, the highly-anticipated film chronicling the rise of Carine Roitfeld‘s CR Fashion Book, has a release date. The documentary will coincide with the close of NYFW and debut in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, and Miami on September 11. Kate Upton, who covered the magazine’s first edition; Karl (the kaiser) Lagerfeld; and Tom Ford all make cameos in the documentary. [Fashionista]

Could dust bags become a thing? If there’s anyone who could make it happen, it’s Roitfeld, who styled Candice SwanepoelIrina Shayk, Lindsey Wixson in designer versions for her magazine’s third issue. We just wouldn’t couple them with her space-age Home Depot jumper. [CR Fashion Book]

We all know that Miranda Priestly of Devil Wears Prada is (loosely) based on the mighty Anna Wintour. There is, however, another style superior who inspired the film: Simon Doonan. “The whole audition charade was nothing more than a carefully orchestrated piece of unpaid research,” he wrote in his forthcoming tome The Asylum: A Collage of Couture Reminiscences…and Hysteria. “We gays had been dragged in to swish it up—on camera no less—for the delectation of some precast, overpaid straight actor… These dark suspicions were confirmed when the movie began lensing, just days after, with Stanley Tucci playing the part of Nigel.” [Fashionista]

Ralph Lauren is keeping it in the family: the all-American aficionado appointed his son David Lauren to his namesake brand’s board. “For me, this is all part of growing and learning and trying to bring exposure to what we can do as a company, where we can grow, what we can change, what the future looks like,” the younger Lauren said of his new post. “I feel very humbled and I think I am going to do a lot of listening and learning over the next few years.” [Vogue UK]
