The Tuesday Fashion Files!!!

by Mara Siegler · February 15, 2011

Alice+Olivia got inspired by the 1920s, Olivier Theyskens is getting rave reviews, Marc Jacobs got severe, and Thom Browne got thee to a nunnery.  Carine Roitfeld's still pissed, David LaChapelle is suing Rihanna, and (gasp!!!) Demi Moore dumped Rachel Zoe for former employee Brad Goreski. Today's Fashion Files are full of the beautiful and the damned.
