"Robert Duffy, president of Marc Jacobs, has divulged via Twitter that he is considering having clothes above size 14 which is, at present, the largest you can be while still being acknowledged by the fashion world as in need of clothing. Anyone above a size 14 is dead, albeit shopping in Matalan. I don't know why Jacobs can't be president of himself, but I do know I have just blown a big, fat raspberry at this promise. No whatever-took-you-so-long swan song from me; no lying on the pavement outside Marc Jacobs, waiting for a size 16 to be spat into my arms. I'll believe it when Kate Moss explodes, leaving a small puddle and some hair." [Guardian]
