Loic Prigent 
Loic Prigent is a French documentary director whose series and documentaries have a strangely new look on the fashion world. If you thought fashion people are lazy, crazy, pretentious & just plain shopaholics, watch his shows and you will realise how much work and stress the fashion world involves. His series give you access to behind the scenes where you would not have any other way. And they are so funny (par example: this & this in french with Lanvin's Alber Elbaz)!
1 - "Le jour d'avant..." means the day before is a documentary series shot during the day/night and minutes leading up to the seasonal shows of the big fashion houses. The fashion houses of "Le jour d'avant" in 2009, season 1: Sonia Rykiel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld & Proenza Schouler. In 2010, season 2: Aexander Wang, Versace, Diane von Furstenberg, Narciso Rodriguez, Nina Ricci, Jeremy Scott. Buy it here: Season 1 & Season 2
2 - "Signe Chanel" 5 episodes showing how Karl Lagerfeld and his team get ready for PFW. Buy it here: Whole series.
3 - "Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton" shot before the Marc Jacobs was the Marc Jacobs as you know him now;) ! Buy it here: whole dvd.

I strongly recommend you watch these, unfortunately they are not on Youtube (I just suddenly remembered I had a post once about all Loic Prigent's great fashion documentaries (HERE) Although the links are dead now), I watched them and they are the best if you want to know more about fashion! It will be one of the best investments you can make this month:) along woth either a pink overcoat or your checkered anything.

Michele Lamy
Have you ever seen the lady with the tattooed fingertips wearing fabulous furs during Paris fashion week in person or on street style shots?

The lady with the tattoed finger tips wearing fab fur is a defense attorney. But she is also the wife of Rick Owens and a style icon in her own right, a party persona from the 90s Los Angeles underground scene, who also sings and who also is the biggest supporter of Gareth Pugh.
Her name is Michele Lamy.

There are so many stories going around about her apparently (via) but she actually is just an artist of all who used to run her restaurant/bar (that she took over from original owner) in Hollywood, Los Angeles where you could find all the biggest stars and artists mingling with the general public on any given night (below pictures 1,2,4) :

"Hidden in a nondescript parking lot, behind an unmarked steel door, the “the two cafés” girded a pair of Provençal-style gardens dotted with mosaic-top tables and dripping with night-blooming jasmine and eucalyptus. Around the old magnolia tree dropping its leaves on the slate slab floor, past the mobile garden bar (and tables 20-23), you approached the main house through the patio—an elevated porch, covered by a canopy of grapevines and three species of Japanese wisteria, and heated year-round by an outdoor fireplace. These were the most coveted tables (numbers 50-62), each of them handmade glass-tile arabesques—where Al Pacino shot double decaf espressos and Six Feet Under shot episodes, where Tim Roth and his family ate most Sunday nights, where Heath Ledger, Djimon Hounsou, Nicole Kidman, Ridley Scott, and David Lynch ate Hama Hama oysters and drank Veuve Clicquot on quiet nights, and Lenny Kravitz and Bill Murray chopped it up and table-hopped on the busy ones."

She plans to reopen the Les deux cafes in Venice italy (on the above image: the pictures on the right)
