Fashion Statement: Katie Grand

There's no denying it--Katie Grand is in demand. She has styled shows for Prada, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton and Proenza Schouler. She's created looks for Madonna, Drew Barrymore, and Scarlett Johansson. Last week, she was named creative director of Mulberry. On top of all that cred, Grand is also the founder and editor-in-chief of Britain's Pop magazine. The new "Sirens" issue of Pop is due to hit newsstands this Thursday and the buzz is big. Just before New York and London are invaded by Fashion Week super-skinnies, Grand is challenging the industry to size up its definition of true style. Her models include The Gossip frontwoman Beth Ditto, Yoko Ono, and Lily Allen. "None of them are traditional women in any way. I like the fact that none of them are traditional sample sizes," she says. Vogue calls her a "fashion superwoman." We would have to agree. [The Independent]
