Dear Mr. Riccardo Tisci, creative director, House of Givenchy: We here at DISGRASIAN headquarters LOVED your house’s spring/summer 2011 Haute Couture presentation. From the Japanese-inspired fashion to the gorgeous Asian models you cast, we cannot get enough. Can we have three of those oversize samurai helmets? We can pay you in love, kisses, and eternal gratitude. Love, Jen, Diana, and Intern Jasmine. [Huffington Post - thanks, Tamlyn!]

Dear Styleite: We know someone had to ask if the increased use and visibility of Asian models in the industry is just a trend. But quit harshing on our fashion-induced buzz! At least until our Givenchy samurai helmets arrive. Love, Jen, Diana, and Intern Jasmine. [Styleite]
