Style Notes: Lorde Chills in a Tree for 'Dazed'; Triple Crown-Winning Horse to Cover 'Vogue'
Tuesdays with fashion.
If you thought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Vogue cover was controversial, then wait till you hear who's next in line for the top spot. American Pharoah, the Triple Crown-winning race horse, has apparently nabbed the honor. Though it's yet unclear whether or not he'll share the spotlight with anyone (say, a human), we're betting that Anna Wintour's fashionable touch will make the unconventional cover star look tres chic.

Lorde plus Lena Dunham plus Dazed magazine equals one crazy cover story. The teen singing queen landed the "Girls Rule the World" cover of the mag, for which she posed in a tree (in a full skirt and peacoat, no less), with the headline, "Lorde, force of nature." Dunham interviewed the 18-year-old for the story, which is accompanied by photos of the singer engaging in very Lorde-esque activities including horizontal motorcycle riding in a field, mattress surfing down a mossy hillside and casually sitting in a blossoming tree.

Designer Elie Tahari, a red-carpet favorite among Emmy Rossum and Mary J. Blige, is being sued for $6 million for sexual harassment by a former model/ employee of his company. The plaintiff alleges that the designer tried to lift her skirt above her panty line in a room full of co-workers and that she was fired two hours after filing a complaint with HR. [Page Six]
When Abercrombie & Fitch said they wanted to class things up a bit, they weren't kidding. Rumor has it that the ailing tween retailer has reportedly hired former Club Monaco vice president of men's design, Aaron Levine. Club Monaco's more sophisticated design aesthetic could be just what A&F needs to refresh their look — especially considering their less-than-stellar sales as of late. [WWD]
