There will be three images, shot by Bela Borsodi, whose work has appeared in Details and Vogue Nippon. Each image molds a different variety of LeSportsac bags, to look like clothing, around the form of an imaginary model. All the bags will be available in stores this summer, Kiester said.
Stephen Niedzwiecki, founder and creative director at YARD (the ad agency behind the campaign), joked that the images should look like "‘America's Next Top Model,' made out of bags." Here's hoping the images get more coverage than most of the show's winners. — Amy Wicks
FULLER GOOD LIFE: The name of the event was "You Go, Girl!" and, accordingly, the Canadian Consulate in New York had rounded up American Media Inc. editorial director Bonnie Fuller to speak and read from her book, "The Joys of Much Too Much."

Asked whether mentors had played a role in her rise, Fuller seemed at a loss, and then said most of the people she had come to for advice over the years happened to be men. Asked about the wage gap between U.S. men and women, Fuller said it was partly because taking time off to be mothers had taken women off track for high-earning positions. "I find it hard to find senior women to promote where I am, in the magazine business," she said.
