The Cannes Film Festival may be drawing the biggest names from Hollywood, Bollywood, and beyond, but the chicest place to be this weekend was undoubtedly an hour up the coast in Monte Carlo, where Raf Simons showed his resort collection for Dior Saturday night. Don’t believe us? Just ask the real-life princess in attendance.
Last night the Lexington Avenue Armory, the venue that usually plays host to blockbuster fashion shows like Marc Jacobs and Victoria’s Secret, was transformed into a night club by Versace’s leather-clad denizens for the launch of the newly-revamped Versus line. The event showcased J.W. Anderson’s capsule collection for the house, along with the stable of “seasonless” looks inspired by iconic pieces of decades past. See it all here in its cropped, slashed, gender-bending glory, plus get a look at some of the unlikely attendees.
Chanel’s cruise collection touched down today at a former nutmeg plantation in Singapore. It was a far cry from the over-the-top productions of seasons past — like, for instance, that time the house dropped a colossal globe in the center of the Grand Palais, or that time they staged a show in a castle — but the collection itself was quintessentially Karl. And clearly others were banking on that, too, since guests like Dakota Fanning barely had time to scrub off their Met Gala makeup before hopping off the 18-hour flight to get there in time.
Kimberly Ovitz has earned herself a substantial number of fans since her ready to wear debut in 2009. Lindsay Lohan wore one of her white bodycon numbers to court two years ago, Leandra Medine gave her flats-on-the-runway idea two big thumbs up, and Anna Wintour graced us all with her presence at the designer’s fall show. But, as it turns out, the latter collection will never see the light of day — or, more accurately, the fluorescent glare of retail stores — because Ovitz has decided not to produce it at all. What gives?
Bridal collections are shown a year in advance, and judging from the looks sent down the spring 2014 runways, brides will be sporting some untraditional looks next season.
The white smoke has billowed in Vatican City and the new Pope has been named, but thirteen years ago, we got an idea of what John Galliano’s version the Catholic leader would look like during one not-so-Christian Dior runway show.
As much as Fashion Month is all about seeing dreamy clothes on the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, it’s also about the lack thereof. For fall 2013, designers sent out topless, bottomless, and downright naked models, and of course, we have it all right here.
Well folks, we’ve made it. It’s our last livestream of Paris Fashion Week and we hope you’ll join us in the front row one final time before bidding adieu to the City of Lights. This morning’s show is Elie Saab, which means we’re in for a first peek at what stars will be wearing on the red carpet in the months to come.
It’s the last day of Paris Fashion Week, and what better way to start it off than with a livestream of the Louis Vuitton fall 2013 runway show bright and early at 4 AM EST? Well, we’ve got your front row seat right here.
Next up on our Paris Fashion Week livestream is Miu Miu at 8 AM EST, and of course, we saved you a front row seat.
It doesn’t get much prettier than Valentino‘s fall show, which walked earlier today in Paris. The house has a reputation for producing dreamy, romantic collections season after season, but their outing for fall felt like one of their strongest yet. It wasn’t easy, but we’ve narrowed down the show to our top ten looks (plus one especially covetable accessory).
Chanel has officially marked its territory…all the way ’round the whole wide world. As if Karl Lagerfeld would settle for anything less than global domination.
We’ll place our bets now: Hedi Slimane‘s fall collection for Saint Laurent will be by far the most polarizing of Paris Fashion Week. Are you on board with the grungy new look, or do you side with the critics who saw the show as an abomination?
There’s no better way to start this lovely Tuesday than with a livestream of the Valentino fall 2013 runway show at 8:30 AM EST. And lucky for you, dear reader, we’ve got a front row seat with your name on it right here.
We’ve heard of high-low dressing, this really takes it to the next level! Phoebe Philo showed her fall 2013 collection for Céline, continuing her streak as every editor’s Fashion Week favorite with a covetable offering of luxe knits, minimalist outerwear, and chic trumpet shapes. Only a few plaid pieces broke up the lineup of solids, and these XL prints reminded us of something very close to home indeed: those ubiquitous woven shopping bags that you can buy in bulk in Chinatown for a few measly dollars.
Hussein Chalayan‘s show may not be the biggest or most star-studded Paris Fashion Week event, but it is usually one of the coolest. This season, the Cypriot-British designer took a concept he’s explored before — high-tech dresses that transform on the body — and translated it into wearable, commercially viable pieces.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally made their Paris Fashion Week debut as parents-to-be at Sunday night’s Givenchy fall 2013 show.
Raf Simons‘ second ready-to-wear show for Christian Dior walked today in Paris, which meant we were at our screens bright and early to catch the live stream of the hotly-anticipated event. In many ways, it was the perfect start to the morning: a breezy, upbeat collection blending pop art, surrealism, and the well-entrenched codes of the storied French house.
Ahh, technology. Despite the six-hour time difference between Paris and New York, we’re still able to watch this afternoon’s Maison Martin Margiela fall 2013 show from the front row. And guess what? — you can, too! We’re streaming the show at 1 PM EST, don’t miss it.
We’re starting off our Friday with a livestream of the Christian Dior fall 2013 show, and we saved you a seat in the front row!
