Frida Kahlo would have been 106-years-old today, so to celebrate we’ve rounded up 17 editorial images inspired by the influential artist.
From a Dior boutique opening to a Netflix mini-series premiere to, well, Diane Kruger: who gets your vote for best in show?
Too good to be true!
Jean Paul Gaultier talks to OUT this month in a piece that is equal parts heart-warming, heart-wrenching, and entertaining. The man in stripes turns 60 next month, following the opening of his retrospective The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk at San Francisco’s de Young Museum.
Fashion is known for having a bit of a sensitivity problem, particularly when it comes to photoshoots. From blackface to oil spills to domestic abuse, nothing is off-limits and, sadly, nothing is handled particularly well. The lastest installment in Fashion Bungling Social Commentary is this homeless-themed spread from the F/W 2011 issue of Antidote magazine.
Who wears short skirts? Not us, especially not after Paris Haute Couture Week‘s overwhelming display of below-the-knee silhouettes. From Jean Paul Gaultier to Armani Prive to Chanel, shrouded legs ran amuck. With the maxi dress’ epic rise to becoming this summer’s most coveted item, longer hemlines are here to stay, making the midi-skirt a trend that has inevitably followed suit.
In recent years, leopard-print has seemingly taken over the world. From Sarah Palin’s footwear, to Kate Moss’ living room, to, well, Nicki Minaj’s entire body, leopard rules the animal-print kingdom — or does it? With the meteoric rise to fame of the leopard-print-loving Snooki and her fellow guidettes, leopard has fallen out of favor with the fashion elite, clearing the way for a new animal-print trend: snakeskin.
Remember when wearing a see-through dress was a fashion faux-pas? Those days are long gone now that transparency is one of this season’s hottest — and most revealing — trends.
We’re all about multi-tasking, which is why we think the scarf might just be the world’s most versatile accessory. You can wear it as a hair-tie, a belt, a shawl, or even a top and either way you’ll look chic and effortless. But the best scarves add some printed panache with their drapey flair, which is why we rounded up our five favorites to share with you — and offered up our thoughts on how to style them.
We don’t actually think the world is about to end, and we’ve been hard pressed to find a lot of people who do. Still, the prospect of The Rapture got us to thinking that there are a few things we should probably get off our chests before 144,000 of us get absorbed into the cosmos. Or whatever is about to happen.
Are you in the safety of your own home? Do you have hours to devote to a new obsession? Do you like books and words and fashion and words in books about fashion and/or fashion words in books? Because we sure do. And Google Ngram lets us analyze said fashion book words. Which is awesome.
Most models keep to fairly strict diets, but what’s a pretty young thing to do when they’re literally surrounded by the one food they’d love to eat most? If it’s for a Ted Sabarese photoshoot, they learn to make it work.
We love taking in nuggets of wisdom from fashion’s greatest minds, and it turns out that the Associated Press does, too. In a recent conversation with designer Vera Wang, the AP put together a list of 20 of the most important lessons Wang has learned in her 20-year career
We have defended Tim Gunn and his tendency not to pull punches in the past, but now he’s insulted our dear Lady Gaga and the gloves are off. OK — only half off. Because when asked what he thought of Gaga’s style, he didn’t say what she wears is categorically bad or even not aesthetically pleasing. Just that it’s not fashion.
Somewhere at the intersection of our undying love of fashion and our intense love of super delicious food, there’s a fantasy that involves sitting down over a bowl of hearty soup with Andre Leon Talley and Martha Stewart. Yesterday, it (almost) came true.
Half of Lauren Conrad‘s life has been chronicled on TV, but she didn’t really have much input in Laguna Beach or The Hills. So when it came time to make arrangements for her new show on MTV, Conrad made sure she’d be in control.
Lady Gaga is not dressing up just to shock you. We promise. And besides the fact that genius stylist Nicola Formichetti told her to put it on, we still can’t figure out the meat bikini.
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?
Ever since Martha Stewart started interviewing fashion people on her show, we’ve been keeping tabs on her work in the industry. We didn’t think it could get much better than her glamorous modeling gig with Chanel, but we might have made that call a little too early.
The road to a career in fashion journalism is paved with a lot of different kinds of stones, and if you want in, you’ve got to pick the ones that are best for you to step on.
