    Fashion Coverage Meets the Uncanny Valley: Style.com has been running animated clips...

    Style.com has been running animated clips of editor Tim Blanks discussing the day-to-day events of Fashion WeekHerald Tribune writer Suzy Menkes's granddaughter bursting into tears at the Gareth Pugh show, for example. It's a cute idea, but when Animated Tim Blanks is done talking, he doesn't stop moving. Instead, he stares at you. And blinks. Repeatedly. It's almost more terrifying than being stared down by a real-life fashion editor. [Style.com]
