Liv Tyler Page 1
She may not know what they do, but she really doesn’t like them.
We spend about four months of the year wearing opaque black tights, so much so that by the time March rolls around they’re practically a second skin. So we understand a little hosiery ennui, but we’ve never quite gotten on board with the style that Liv Tyler chose for last night’s premiere of The Hobbit in New York City.
We already know who took home the grand prize at last night’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards (that would be Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman), but there was no shortage of champions on the red carpet, either. Designers, models, editors, and fashion fans alike donned their best all-American duds and stepped out to strike a pose or two.
Who knew this A-list actress was such a whiz on the other side of the camera?
As far as we’re concerned, Liv Tyler does not take nearly enough advantage of her rock royalty heritage, which is why this video of her rocking out to a Givenchified (like it? we do) version of INXS’s “Need You Tonight” is so awesome.
This was the week we welcomed Kate Middleton to the States! She looked awesome in McQueen, but her visit wasn’t without controversy. We also got our regular fashion-filled doses of Justin Bieber, Emma Watson, and Kanye — plus a surprise Sarah Jessica Parker reappearance.
Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci has demonstrated his affinity for a certain degree of otherness in his ad campaigns. So we were surprised by how unsurprised we were by Tisci’s choice of actress Liv Tyler as the face of his current beauty campaigns. Tyler is undeniably beautiful. But does she illustrate otherness? Not in the least.
Kanye West is known around the world for his “original” sense of style, right? So why has he been turning up at Fashion Weeks all over the world wearing the same Givenchy garments as other less famous people? Dare we ask, but is ‘Ye losing his magic spark?
Last night, John Galliano and a gaggle of his muses celebrated the reopening of Dior’s flagship store at 57th Street in New York City but also the appointment of Natalie Portman as the new face of the brand.
Our idea of what profession prepared the best crossover into the modeling business changed today when photos and video of 19-year-old Norwegian chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen shooting a campaign for G-Star Raw emerged.
