WaPo's fashion coverage seems to be flagging a bit in Givhan's wake.

Last night my colleague Jonathan L. Fischer checked out the Moombahton Massive 2 at U Street Music Hall, headlined by the genre’s creator, Dave Nada. Nada, the subject of Fischer’s cover story a few weeks ago, was back in town from L.A., where he moved last year. I can’t guarantee any post-event coverage on the blog today, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

Well, WaPo‘s certainly taking its time in its search to replace Robin Givhan. Its lead story on the Fashion & Beauty section is Givhan’s two-month-old speculation about what Kate Middleton will wear for her wedding to Prince William. I guess it could be worse; say, a month-old roundup of the best holiday gifts. But still. Ouch.

As Ryan Kearney over at TBD reports, D.C. native Davis Guggenheim was nominated by the Directors Guild of America for one of the best documentaries of 2010 for his film Waiting for Superman. I’d love to hear our own Benjamin R. Freed‘s take on all the accolades the Michelle Rhee-venerating film has been receiving.

I’m still waiting for my February Vanity Fair, but I guess when I get it I’ll see Rhianna as the subject of the My Stuff feature. Her favorite discovery and her favorite toothpaste, respectively? “My naughty toys! Wink,” and “Whatever 9 out of 10 dentists recommend.”
