Clippings: Martin Margiela's First Fragrance Edition



    - Martin Margiela's much-anticipated first scent is already out in Paris (of course, it's called "Untitled"), and will hit Maison Martin Margiela's New York outpost at the end of March. Apparently, it "captures the ideal au naturel smell of human skin," which includes bitter orange, white musk, and resin. Basically, it'll sell out in a week. [The Moment]

    - Vogue Italiahas launched a special section of the website called "Vogue Curvy," with -- naturally -- an exclusive video with plus-size model Crystal Renn. There's a whole section devoted to "Curvy Icons" and even a "Curvy Blog," with posts dedicated to an upscale hotel room tricked out with candy and three pieces from Uniqlo that will look good on any frame, among other topics. [Vogue Italia]

    - Introducing Reid Peppard's new accessory line called RP/Encore, which features bags made out of dead rats, necklaces made from actual bird wings, and other taxidermy-inspired fashions. Frankly, we're pretty creeped out. [Racked]

    - White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers is stepping down from her post, after receiving a lot of flak for the whole White House party crashers incident. No immediate successor has yet been named, but we'd be interested to see if the new social secretary is as visible within the fashion community as Ms. Rogers has been. [WWD]

    - We didn't know much about this Barlow line until recently, but it sounds like the entire Gossip Girl cast is throwing its support behind designer Molly Girard Coonan (as evidenced by the appearance of three of its top stars at the party Shopbop threw for the brand), so we're betting it'll do just fine.
