Anytime we get to bask in Iris Apfel‘s glow is a treat, and her latest video with Advanced Style‘s Ari Seth Cohen is just pure gold.
Ari Seth Cohen and the ever-inspiring ladies of Advanced Style were on The Today Show this morning talking with host Matt Lauer about (what else?) the age-defying pleasure of dressing up.
What’s cooler than a flash mob? A flash fashion show, obviously!
More images from Lanvin‘s fall 2012 campaign surfaced today, and it certainly looks like Alber Elbaz is making good on his promise to cast “real people” of “different ages, different sizes…like a crazy family”. The newest members of the clan are indeed an eclectic bunch, ranging from an aristocratic-looking brunette with a neck full of jewels to a hipster youth with half-bleached hair. Also: a wolf man. Of sorts.
There are many reasons we love Alber Elbaz and this one just adds to the growing list. The Lanvin designer cast a spread of real women and men between the ages of 18 and 80 for his fall campaign. And the ads are awesome.
Iris Apfel: still cooler than you.
Without a doubt, the single best event we went to last Fashion Week was the Advanced Style party co-hosted by Tavi Gevinson. The music and the guest list were pitch perfect — from Ira Glass to the incredibly fashionable women of Ari Seth Cohen‘s fantastic street style blog.
We alluded to this earlier, but last night’s Advanced Style party at the Ace Hotel, co-hosted by its creator Ari Seth Cohen and oh-so-awesome Tavi Gevinson was by far and away our favorite party of the week, mainly because it was so refreshing to see people wearing fabulous things because they want to wear them, and not because they think it will get them photographed.
There were many reasons we were excited to attend last night’s Advanced Style party, not the least of which was the chance to bump into co-host Tavi Gevinson. More on the party later (spoiler alert: it was our favorite of the week), but first let’s discuss the awesomeness that is the Style Rookie.
Sure they dine before sunset, can’t see over the steering wheel, and often smell like a mixture of moth balls and rose petals. But with the recent surge in popularity of all things Betty White, it seems old might just be the new young, at least where fashion is concerned.
