CLOUDS OVERHEAD: After Thursday’s snow-sleet-rain in New York, London-bound editors and models were presumably ready to take flight. Unfortunately for them, Friday’s foul weather in the U.K. has been equally unforgiving. Numerous international flights en route to London’s Heathrow Airport have been cancelled or diverted to Newcastle. Georgia Jagger, Jourdann Dunn, Anna Wintour, Hamish Bowles and Carrie Phillips were among those cooling their heels in Newcastle, due to hurricane-force winds, pelting rain and snow. After three hours on the ground in the UK’s 11th busiest airport, the displaced fashion pack were still waiting Friday night to hear whether they would be winging it back to Heathrow or making the 276-mile drive.
