It’s hard to believe that today, designer Tom Ford turns 49-years-old. To us, he doesn’t look a day older than 30. But despite his youthful looks and rocking body, the amount he’s accomplished in his design career is nothing short of genius.
The Kardashian sisters are teaming up with Mad Men designer and stylist Janie Bryant to create a range of clothes for women with curves bodies. Which is a good thing, considering Kim revealed just yesterday she was having trouble fitting into any of her potential Emmy dresses.
At Rodarte’s Fall 2010 show last February, attendees saw distressed bridal-looking gowns walk down an aisle covered with dripping candles. But even the gorgeousness and eccentricity of the Rodarte show couldn’t keep onlookers from noticing a certain CEO in the front row — Pierre-Yves Roussel, head of LVMH’s fashion division.
Despite a hectic few months and some time spent in jail and rehab, Lindsay Lohan found time to write a little something for BlackBook‘s September issue. And if you ask us, the four-paragraph piece hawking her recently expanded leggings line is just about four paragraphs too long.
Every once and while, we come across a side project from an A-lister that makes us wonder, why? Case in point: this commercial Nicole Kidman filmed for a currently under construction mall in Rio de Janeiro — a mall that will be three floors, have 125 stores, six movie theaters and a 680-seat theater.
We’ve seen many a fashion disaster on the set of DWTS, so we’ll shy away from discussing the outfits at this moment. But with all the hype around the who’s who of this season, it got us wondering: in an imaginary world occupied by only fashion industry elite, who would we want to make up the cast of DWTS?
Could Joseph Altuzarra and Alexander Wang be the most fashionable best friends? Possibly. But when we heard of their BFF-ness, it got us thinking. Who are some other fashionable besties?
If we were to make a list of the biggest foot-related fashion faux pas, socks with sandals would definitely come in first place. But believe it or not, according to results from an archeological dig conducted in North Yorkshire, England, this awful fashion disaster has been around for over 2,000 years.
On September 9th, one day before Fashion’s Night Out and the world’s largest fashion show hosted by Anna Wintour, Elle will fill the David Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for a show of their own.
We know her Internet personality, have a good sense of her interviewing personality, but seeing Tavi Gevinson while actually working — well, that’s something new.
Selfridges in London has decided to offer some much deserved praise to British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood. And while we are often completely enthralled by her a-symmetrical dresses and distressed coats, the area in which Westwood really shines — and the talent for which Selfridges is honoring her — is in the shoe department.
We guess Olivia Palermo just can’t figure out what she wants to do. Editor, reality television star, jewelry designer, socialite…model?
If you live in New York or follow fashion in any capacity, you’d have to be living under a rock to not know that September 10th marks the second annual Fashion’s Night Out — Anna Wintour‘s all night event celebrating the beginning of Fashion Week, fall fashion, and most importantly, helping out the New York City AIDS fund and the fashion industry at large.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Hilton Sisters in the tabloids. In fact, we had almost forgotten about soft spoken Nicky Hilton, when we came across these photos from Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival in Australia.
But while it was strange seeing Nicky do her catwalk, the designs were even worse.
Naomi Campbell never fails at shocking us with her prima donna requirements. Hot on the heels of the very public drama of her blood diamond testimony, Campbell found time to dine with famous friends Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Refaeli while on vacation with her Russian billionaire boyfriend in Capri. Sound fancy? Well, wait to you hear this.
In this month’s issue of Nylon, cover girl Jessica Szohr tells us that if she had to choose one of her castmate’s closets to sift through, it would be rebel character Jenny Humphrey’s. Really?
Earlier this week, we noticed a tweet from @peoplesrev — Kelly Cutrone’s personal twitter account — that made our hearts beat just a bit faster. Is a new show on the horizon?
In order to thank the many people who helped make her wedding the best and most beautiful day of her life, and in order to put our imaginations at ease, Coco Rocha posted two videos of the big day on her blog.
Six weeks of limited parking, blocked streets, and countless trucks — not to mention the photographers, the paparazzi, and the ever-idling town cars. Welcome to New York’s Fashion Week. Manhattan’s Upper West Siders are in for a ride. But short of offering them front row tickets to a Diane von Furstenberg show, it’s difficult to imagine what they could possibly do to assuage the fears of neighborhood residents.
Rachel Zoe is, without a doubt, a brand. She’s a celebrity, she’s a TV star, she’s a fashionista. She’s a wife, she’s a comedian, she’s a business woman. She has a newsletter, she has an assistant (several of them!), and she has a lot of clothes. But at the heart of things, however often we may forget, Rachel Zoe is a stylist — and amazing one at that.
