Ali Wise

Blond society babe Ali Wise -- the fired publicity director for Dolce & Gabbana -- was slapped with four felonies yesterday for allegedly making a compulsive, vindictive leap from flacking to hacking. The ferocious fashionista embarked on a strange, high-tech vendetta against the girlfriends of her old boyfriends, according to a criminal complaint filed against her in Manhattan Criminal Court. Wise allegedly used widely available "SpoofCard" software more than 1,000 times. With it, she broke into the voice-mail systems of four people -- at least two of whom had dated her high-powered ex-boyfriends -- nearly 700 times, prosecutors said. The Barbie-esque publicist would then eavesdrop on their messages, even deleting those that did not meet with her favor, prosecutors said. She now faces anywhere from probation to four years in prison if convicted of the raps. Yesterday, Wise, 30, clacked into Manhattan Criminal Court in her Louboutin stilettos -- wearing head-to-toe black -- and was told her legal troubles have quadrupled. She now faces four counts each of computer trespass, eavesdropping, computer tampering and aggravated harassment and one count of stalking. She made at least 137 additional calls into the voice mails of Victim No. 2, at least 119 calls into the voice mails of Victim No. 3, and at least 102 calls into the voice mails of Victim No. 4, the criminal complaint says. Wise declined comment before zipping away from the courthouse in her hired Mercedes.

Too-Skinny Model Fired for Being Too Fat
Filippa Hamilton, the model whose figure was airbrushed to the point of emaciation for a controversial Ralph Lauren ad, claims that Ralph Lauren fired her, in fact, for being too fat. "They fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn't fit in their clothes anymore," she told the Daily News on Tuesday. "I was shocked to see that super skinny girl with my face. It's very sad, I think, that Ralph Lauren could do something like that." Ralph Lauren claims that the ad, which was only shown in Japan, was mistakenly released. "I think they owe American women an apology, a big apology," Hamilton said. "I'm very proud of what I look like, and I think a role model should look healthy." -DBeast

Mackenzie Carpenter - The September Issue

Holly Brubach, a Pittsburgher who served as style editor for The New York Times, fashion critic for The New Yorker and who worked for Vogue in the 1970s and 1980s, before Wintour came on board, says it may be that Wintour simply possesses good instincts.

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan may be an actress, party-girl, heck, even a singer – but after a disastrous fashion show in Paris, there’s one thing she’s definitely not: a fashion designer. LiLo recently became the Creative Director at Emanuel Ungaro, and its ready-to-wear show in Paris was her big debut. And, in the words of Women’s Wear Daily, it was “an effort that was, quite simply, an embarrassment.” Lohan worked with the brand’s designer, Estrella Archs, “who probably got the job in part of her willingness to sketch in Lohan’s shadow.” The clothes that came down the runway were tight pink confections which looked “cheesy and dated." -DBeast
