• Wipe that sweat off your brow. Even thought the CW’s ratings are floundering, America’s Next Top Model has been renewed for its eleventh and twelfth cycles because it’s the channel’s most-watched program. Obvi. [WP]

• Robin Givhan wonders who but a fashion editor would wear Miu Miu’s fall line, a “fascinating blend of scuba suit fabric, Crayola colors, mod silhouettes and vintage shop eccentricities.” [WP]

• Hilary Alexander sums up the top ten trends from Paris, which include bubble skirts, Spanish lace, and florals, because, you know, screw dressing for the weather. [Telegraph]

• Getting a seat at fashion shows can be a real bitch even if you’re relatively important. Also, one designer sends invites to New York editors in clear envelopes because they’re to busy to open real mail. [Fashion Inc./Portfolio]

• Michael Kors snatched an executive from Marc Jacobs to help expand retail operations in Europe. [WWD]

• Marni will probably expand into the recently closed Nave boutique next door on Mercer Street. [Racked]

• The now-foxy John Mayer said he’s more proud to be on Time’s list of 100 Most Influential People than to be named Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Male of the Year, even though he was at the Cosmo dinner when he said so. Smooth. [WWD]
