Matthew Williamson Page 1
Matthew Williamson is something of a maestro when it comes to bright, eye-popping colors, so we’ll be in good hands when his cosmetics debut hits the shelves at Sephora later this month. Want to get a sneak peek at what’s in store for us? Of course you do.
Disney publicists must be out celebrating tonight. Today, they managed to get a real life princess to walk their red carpet.
OK, OK, we’ll admit it. We weren’t all that sure that we were going to fall in love with Giambattista Valli‘s collaboration with Macy’s Impulse. But we saw the clothes the Italian designer made for the American chain last night, and some of them are absolutely fabulous.
No wonder Matthew Williamson changed his mind about Kate Middleton. It’s been reported — by people who can do math and stuff — that the future princess and someday queen of England can inspire some serious clothing purchases. How serious? Middleton’s preference for knee-high boots has inspired the women of the British Isles to run into stores for boots just like hers. And so many women have done it that sales of such boots have increased 663 percent.
Less than a month after Matthew Williamson told reporters in London he wished people would just “get over” Kate Middleton, he’s eating his words. While chatting with Fashionista at the launch of his Macy’s collection, the designer denied any animosity towards the royal bride.
Matthew Williamson celebrated the launch of his diffusion collection for Macy’s in New York’s Herald Square last night. And while Harley Viera-Newton deejayed, muses Kelis (who performed later in the evening) and Dree Hemingway modeled the line on the red carpet. Which, naturally, begs the question: who wore it better?
There’s nothing that makes us quite so giddy as a good designer collaboration — especially when that collaboration is a diffusion collection. So when we saw the photos of Matthew Williamson‘s line for Macy‘s, near-Lanvin Hearts H&M levels of bubbly happiness overflowed the Styleite office.
This wasn’t just any week, this was our birthday week! Happy birthday to us! To celebrate, we bring you an all-important recap of the (birthday!) week that was featuring John Galliano, Kate Middleton, Tyra Banks and more. Yay birthday!
Open mouth, insert foot. British designer Matthew Williamson suggested to a reporter that fashion people should just stop obsessing over Kate Middleton. And why? Because she’s not really a fashion person, so no one should care what she wears. Um. What?
Designer Matthew Williamson says his new line of wedding dresses has nothing to do with the world’s royal wedding mania. We know, we know — we read that and balked too. British designer, freshly available line of white dresses for summer bridal consumption, royal wedding anticipation boiling to the top of the pot — from merchandising and promotion purposes, it’s the perfect storm. Still, Williamson says he’s not trying to cash in on Kate Middleton‘s nuptials. Not one little bit.
It would feel a little superficial to laud a collection of staple pieces for something other than being entirely necessary in your wardrobe. But if you get them from Twenty8Twelve, the ultra cool line from sisters Sienna and Savannah Miller, maybe — just maybe — it’s OK to brag about who designed them. (If they can get Matthew Williamson to sit next to Jude Law in their front row to look at a bunch of cotton basics, they must be some kind of good.)
Matthew Williamson‘s fun, flirty attire is a red carpet staple — women like Whitney Port, Blake Lively and Jessica Simpson can’t seem to get enough of the stuff, and with good reason. When it comes to making very hip, beaded cocktail dresses, or short sweet things in flattering, form-fitting prints, there’s no one better than Williamson.
New York Fashion Week may be over, but there are still many, many shows to be seen in the weeks ahead. London Fashion Week has officially kicked off, and Milan and Paris will be following suit shortly. We’re excited about the goings-on across the pond, so we wanted to share the 5 things that excite us most about this season’s London Fashion Week.
Gossip Girl and fashion go hand in hand. Not an episode goes by without drooling over one of Blaire’s parisian-chic coats or Serena’s sexy couture minis. The cast has influenced the way viewers dress and even given designers an idea or two (remember Anna Sui’s Gossip Girl-inspired collection for Target?) Now, designer Matthew Williamson wants in on the gossip.
Every year, Paper magazine releases their list of Beautiful People. Last year’s list consisted of names like Whitney Port, Kristen Wiig, DJ Cassidy, and Cushnie et Ochs, among others. The list is always diverse. Some on the list are superstars, others rising stars, and others, for lack of a nicer term, are no-names. Regardless of their social status, they’re all gorgeous and interesting and totally Paper.
There’s nothing like a European magazine to tell you what’s on the cutting edge of fashion. In the March issue of UK Harper’s Bazaar, fashion editors filled us in on four of the hottest new collaborations — and yes, ones that you probably don’t know about yet. We promise, it’s not just a list of who’s next up to work with H&M or Gap.
