Every girl has had that one that got away, but it’s not always a case of long-lost love. In fact, we can personally attest to the belief that there are dresses so life-changing that you know you’ll never find anything like it again.
If there’s one show we’re sure will stick with us fifty years from now, it’s that of Thom Browne for Spring 2014. While it was arresting to no end, it was also ripe with night terror bait. His inspiration, “insane Elizabethan clowns,” is scary enough, without adding an insane asylum backdrop complete with the kind of nurses you might find on American Horror Story, Joker-inspired beauty, and a droning xylophone soundtrack.
Photo editors have been known to harbor vendettas against models’ limbs. Sometimes they’ll haphazardly gouge parts out of thighs, sometimes they’ll amputate them entirely, and sometimes they’ll take a shoulder and move it somewhere it doesn’t belong. But was Moda Operandi’s Adobe whiz overzealous with the eraser tool on this particular image? You be the judge.
The Met Gala is finally here, and we’ve got you a spot on the red carpet (sort of). Watch the fashion action live tonight at 7:00 PM EST, and hope that Beyoncé arrives on time.
We’re not sure we’ve ever seen Kate Bosworth make a major fashion mistake. Whether she’s sporting jeans and an oversized sweater or donning a sleek black sheath, she’s undeniably, effortlessly, and outrageously gorgeous always.
Because punk may be dead, but capitalism is alive and kicking up it’s $3,000 heels!
The most exclusive invite of the season is being extended to more than a few gate crashers this year — well, sorta. The Met Gala is going to be more of a public spectacle than ever, with ramped up livestream coverage, social media tie-ins with industry insiders, and now a shop-the-red carpet initiative with co-sponsor Moda Operandi.
The irony of attending an 8AM press preview breakfast at the Metropolitan Museum of Art along with Anna Wintour and a pack of Vogue-ettes to talk Sid Vicious, Johnny Rotten, and all things punk was not lost on us as we made the trek to the Upper East Side yesterday, but were we complaining? Not a chance. What we were previewing was, of course, the Costume Institute’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibition, slated to open to the public May 9 after the annual star-studded gala.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has just announced its 2013 exhibit, PUNK: Chaos to Couture. Quite a departure from its previous Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit, and we’re totally on board with this one.
Carrying the flag for Israeli fashion is Dorit “Dodo” Bar Or, the actress turned designer behind Pas Pour Toi, a line of distinctive, opulent, and altogether elegant pieces that, thanks to the folks at Moda Operandi, is now available to all with an internet connection and cash to spend.
Yikes, that’s a lot of zeros for a pair of sunnies.
Yesterday everyone was oh-so-excited that former Marie Claire editor/current Moda Operandi artistic director/perennial street style star Taylor Tomasi Hill designed some clothes. While the Lane Crawford collection is cute, it’s not particularly original.
In case you were wondering what’s like to shop for the hottest looks of New York Fashion Week at all hours of the day and night, we’re here to tell you… it’s fairly freakin’ fabulous thanks to the launch of web site, Moda Operandi. The brainchild of Vogue Contributing Editor, Lauren Santo Domingo, and CEO Aslaug Magnusdottir (formerly of Gilt Noir), M’O has officially arrived. The site went live on Wednesday with Alexander Wang’s Fall 2011 collection taking center screen, and we’ve got to say, this site is pretty addictive.
It’s almost here. The moment you (okay, those of you who got an invite) have all been waiting for. The much-anticipated launch of Moda Operandi, the exclusive runway shopping site from Vogue‘s Lauren Santo Domingo and CEO Aslaug Magnusdottir (former head of merchandising at Gilt Noir), is just around the corner.
