Thanks to Nightline, we knew five month old Skyler Berman had a sick closet, but now we can confirm that he has far fancier shoes than you or I will (probably) ever own.
No, really. Why don’t you love Haider Ackermann more yet? Why is it the only time you think about him is when Tilda Swinton walks around out of doors in one of his dresses? For shame! Also in today’s Dish, the people who inspire Alexa Chung‘s hairdos and the crazy way men are trying to make their beards smell nicer.
There’s no shortage of people who love fashion on Tumblr, and because of that fashion brands have been a lot quicker to hop on that bandwagon than they were with other social networking tools. But some people who work in fashion are mad as hell that the blogging platform hasn’t created a way to measure how much of an impact they’re having on their customers. Case in point: Julie Friedrickson, the Digital and Social Media manager at Ann Taylor, the first fashion company ever to start a Tumblr.
And Tavi Gevinson‘s star just keeps on rising. Today, the New York Times published a preview of a feature they’re running in this weekend’s New York Times Magazine profiling the 15-year-old blogger and founder of her soon-to-be-revealed Sassy redux, Rookie. Tavi comes across as equally down to earth as she is intelligent, but it’s the thoughtfulness with which she’s approached her new project, as well as the special role one Ira Glass played in getting it off the ground, that has us genuinely in awe.
The Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met was seriously, seriously amazing. We gushed and gushed and gushed about Savage Beauty, and were sad to learn that it wouldn’t be shown anywhere else. But it looks like the demand was just too high for the McQueen folks to ignore. Rumor has it the exhibit will be shown across the pond in the very near future.
Yesterday Marc Jacobs postponed its fall show. Today Theyskens’ Theory did the same. This all begs the question: why don’t designers have their shit together?
File this thing under things that would not happen today: From the 1930s to the 1970s, legendary artist Salvador Dali created a series of covers for various editions of Vogue, and most of them looked like he pulled them straight from his eerie, Dada canvases.
You guys, Tom Ford is 50-year-old fashion genius. At this point, age and prestige have all but just handed the man the undeniable right to spout wise on just about anything he wants, and that includes stories we thought were over months ago. Case in point: the man still has thoughts on that much-maligned Philip Treacy fascinator that Princess Beatrice of York wore to the Royal Wedding.
Prince Harry is, quite obviously, the sexier of the two Wales brothers and now that William has been married off to everyone’s favorite fashion plate, Kate Middleton, there’s really no competition. Which is why watching Harry dance awkwardly to techno and then jump in a pool with his clothes on is so, well, depressing. Hot princes don’t dance awkwardly to techno. And, for those of you looking for a style angle, hot princes also don’t wear ill-fitting blue jeans with matching blue button down shirts.
Commes des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo doesn’t often give interviews — and the last time she did, she and her interpreter got upset that the reporter gave her words a slight twist. So this interview with The Wall Street Journal went a little differently. Kawakubo took a few questions via email, and the only thing our friends at the Journal had to do was copy and paste her eloquent, straightforward responses.
Designers presenting at New York Fashion Week are being advised strongly to card models in an effort to comply with the CFDA’s recommended age limit, which says girls under 16 shouldn’t walk in major shows. So within the next week, a bunch of 15-year-old models are going to be on the hunt for fake IDs.
Oh, man. There is no worse way to start the morning than to be introduced to what is arguably the worst shirt of all time. Ever.
So you know how whenever we have to write a headline about the Kardashian sisters, we change every letter C in it to a K because it’s hilarious? Well, the sisters themselves tried that tactic in a press release, and it didn’t turn out so well.
For those of you going through a serious case of Harry Potter withdrawal, we’ve got good, if somewhat surprising, news. Enemy wizards Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy are staring in this season’s lookbook for kickass clothing label, Band of Outsiders.
There’s a lot of good stuff in today’s StyleDish, but let’s cut straight to the chase. Early 90s British television show Absolutely Fabulous is filming three new episodes, which is awesome. But more importantly, what crazy expensive designer labels should the starring duo Patsy and Eddy wear?
It’s been less than a year since Vogue gave its ailing website a very extensive overhaul, but all that redesigning is already paying off. And we’re not talking a lower bounce rate or a decent uptick in unique visitors. We’re talking about a very different kind of animal altogether.
This month’s issue of Vogue holds a pleasant surprise nestled amidst the Kate Moss love fest: a profile of newly installed Vogue Paris editor in chief Emmanuelle Alt. The profile is friendly and endearing, and allows the editrix to offer up some thoughtful musings on Vogue Paris’ proclivity for nipples as well as the songs Kate Moss likes to sing at karaoke.
Yesterday we had lots of things to say about the fashion at the VMAs — the best and worst looks, the costumes, Kanye, Bieber, Gaga, and BEY-Z. Now we need to discuss the very curious case of Lil Wayne‘s legwear.
Some women might not like Michele Bachmann‘s politics, but they sure do love her hair. All over the country, hair stylists are being asked to do whatever they can to mimic the Republican Congresswoman’s lush auburn mane for their clients.
