It’s Friday, and it’s time for dressed.so’s third installment of the State…
Welcome once again to the state of the fashion internet, according to the d.so blog team.

+ To the surprise of all and the dismay of some, Maison Martin Margiela has announced that John Galliano will come aboard as creative director. Galliano leans towards bright and bold designs with a penchant for slapping his name on anything that can be sold — a stark contrast to Margiela’s sleek minimalist appeal. Is this the start of #maximalism for MMM?
+ Have a look at the whole Alexander Wang X H&M collection.
+ Everlane’s designer speaks: on her experiences from Narciso Rodriguez to J. Crew, and what Everlane means to her.
+ Michelle Obama cements her place as First Lady of fashion, holding a fashion career workshop with Anna Wintour at the White House. Read her remarks here: “Fashion is about so much more than just a pretty pair of pumps or the perfect hemline. For so many people across the country, it is a calling, it is a career, and it’s a way they feed their families. So that’s why we thought it was important to bring the industry to the White House, and to share it with all of you who are coming up in the next generation.”
+ If any of you goth wannabes are going to be in NYC between now and February, be sure to stop by the Met Costume Institute for a lesson in the history of black clothes. Some of Queen Victoria’s own sikk fits are the highlight of “Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire,” an exhibit on mourning clothes from 1815 to 1915.

+ Have socks and sandals sold out? Coming soon to an Urban Outfitters near you: Woolrich socks with sandal “styling tips” from Teva.
+ In a development surprising to absolutely no one, Abercrombie and Fitch is headed to the Supreme Court for discriminatory hiring practices.
