Daisy Lowe and Will Cameron got Valentine's Day (aka Day Two of Fashion Week) off to a rowdy start, kissing and mugging for the photographers alongside Lily Collins (that would be Phil's daughter) at the Lacoste fall fashion show. The collection, which teetered on the monochromatic side, featured a male model named Rene that bore eerily similar characteristics to President Barack Obama (but more on that later). My friend Hilary Alexander, the fashion editor of The Daily Telegraph in London, made an astute observation about the show's designer, Christophe Lemaire, as we waited for the show to start. "Christophe creates clothes that are a chic version of Abercombie & Fitch," she said.
