I love the vintage look to the shoot! I guess there has been a lot of backlash towards Lily in her native UK where she's a very mainstream celebrity. A lot of Christian groups in the UK are even calling for a boycott of Marks & Spencer the London retailer that has the 20-year-old Cambridge University student as its spokeswoman. But M&S are standing by Lily and she insists that the pictorial should be considered art. You can decide for yourselves but I'm sure Lily would only be involved in the most tasteful of shoots.

So you probably already know that poor Abbey Lee fainted as she came off the runway and wasn't able to walk in the finale of the show. Everyone, from her agent to fellow model Ali Stephens, insisted that she fainted because the corset was just too tight but that she was fine once it was off. Abbey's been having a great runway season and has quickly become one of my favorite models but she did have a fall on the Rodarte runway back in NYC. Is it nerves? Corsets? Shoes? Or something else? Just wondering.
