It would appear that the lovely Kerry Washington is the latest of a string of starlets to opt for a different gown mere moments before they hit the red carpet.
It has certainly been a big year for Georgina Chapman. Since January, the Marchesa designer has announced plans to launch a lower-priced line, crafted a collection of fashionable football gear (seriously), designed the gown for one of the most-hyped celebrity weddings, and leant her considerable talents to Project Runway: All Stars, where she serves as a judge alongside Isaac Mizrahi and host Carolyn Murphy. Oh, and did we mention she just announced her second pregnancy? Because yep, that too.
Last month, Marchesa was discussing the possibility of launching a contemporary collection with LF USA, the same group that saved Vena Cava. Now it’s been confirmed that the two are indeed in business together.
Despite the small number of fashion folk on the Time‘s 100 Most Influential People list this year, last night’s red carpet was quite stylish.
Big news: Marchesa is discussing the possibility of a contemporary line with LF USA, an investment and supply chain company — and the same people who saved Vena Cava with a cash infusion just last week. According to WWD, details are still fuzzy, but an announcement will be made soon.
Last night fancy fashion folk gathered for the 15th annual Accessories Council Excellence Awards. We love the ACE Awards because fashion event red carpets are generally pretty great, and it’s where Kanye told the world that fashion breaks his heart last year. There weren’t any groundbreaking speeches last night, but there were some lovely dresses. Let’s discuss!
Project Runway’s new cast has us starstruck! Lifetime announced the new contestants (and completely new judges panel) for Project Runway All Stars today. Here’s your first look into what’s bound to be a delightfully dramatic and tear-filled season.
Looks like President Obama is coming back to the city for yet another fashion-forward fundraising dinner. Word has it that Harvey Weinstein (the guy who just gave up his stake in Halston), his wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, and Anna Wintour are hosting a few members of the industry elite at the Weinstein’s West Village home next week. And you’ll never guess how much those people are paying for a chance to dine with the president.
Ever wanted to know what Donatella Versace wears when she’s not sporting sequin-covered gowns? Or what Michael Kors looks like in something other than a black, tailored suit? So did we, and that’s why when we saw Giorgio Armani rocking a speedo last week, we couldn’t help but dig up photos of our other favorite designers in their beach duds. So turn up your A.C, it’s about to get hot in here.
