You know the romance of Tuesday's election is still heavy on the minds of the fashion industry when two canonical sources publish whimsical stories of what life might be like under President Barack Obama...

WWD wrote today on the modern, laid-back cool that we can expect under new leadership. A photo gallery includes photos of Obama and his family wearing nice clothing and gliding to their various destinations like teenagers.

Across the pond, The International Herald Tribune has a debate with itself about weather the Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2009 dress that Michelle Obama wore on election night was a "do" or a "don't". In the end the paper decides that more fashion fun is on the way. 

In other, less fantastical news, a new art/fashion magazine, called Tar, has hit the scene and it's started its life out with Ryan McGinley spreads and loads of those elusive advertisements everyone's been talking about lately. 

In the wake of his departure from Bill Blass, Peter Som has started in the capsule/collaboration business with a small line of children's clothing for the brand Best & Co. We're guessing at this point the man just wants to move fast and make some money.
