Olivier Theyskens Page 1
Marion Cotillard wasn’t the only one who struck a pose for the flashbulbs last night, even if she was the only one who did so in fresh-off-the-runway Christian Dior.
Olivier Theyskens just chopped his long luscious locks, and we are totally loving it!
Brazilian model Caroline Trentini got married to photographer Fabio Bartelt this weekend. Congrats, we say! But doesn’t that wedding dress look a little familiar?
If there’s one thing we know about Olivier Theyskens, it’s that an interview with him is never going to go exactly the way you imagined it. So when we found out that costume designer Milena Canonero had interviewed him for, um, Interview, we rushed over to check it out. In their wide-ranging conversation, the two discussed everything from why Theyskens got into design in the first place (hint: it has to do with his mom), and what designers really want.
This week was all about weddings and proms! Because it’s spring! We saw Karl Lagerfeld in the flesh, celebrated Kanye‘s bold fashion choices, and speculated about John Galliano‘s replacement. There was also a whole lot of plastic surgery talk.
We chatted with plenty of fashionable folk at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Karl Lagerfeld‘s Magnum ice cream shorts, but none left us wanting more quite like Olivier Theyskens did. Let it be known: Theyskens knows who is designing Kate Middleton‘s royal wedding dress, and he almost spilled the beans.
Lots of brands and individuals in the fashion industry have been quick to find ways to donate money to the people and institutions still reeling from the tsunami and earthquake that struck Japan last month. But strength lies in numbers, which is why we’re especially excited by the way members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America have banded together to auction off over 100 fashion-filled lots and prizes, like front row seats at fashion shows and meetings with some of our favorite designers. All of the proceeds will go to benefit The Japan Society, and we’ve included some of our favorite lots in this post. The auction started on Charity Buzz yesterday and will close on April 28th. Which lots are you bidding on?
John Galliano‘s career at Dior hasn’t been over for 24 hours yet, but people are already speculating and making bets on who will replace him. A few names have floated to the top of the heap, but we won’t know for sure who it will be until someone has signed and dated what will undoubtedly be a very lucrative contract. Still, it’s sort of fun (but also kinda sad) to informally nominate a few people for the post.
New York Fashion Week is a bit past the midway point and while some blowouts are still too fresh to be covered — V Man, Post, BLK DNM, and Alexander Wang all hosted dueling bashes last night and we’re still waking up — some of the best have come and gone.
This was the week that Marie Claire got embroiled in some “fattie” controversy, Justin Bieber was the victim of unfortunate Photoshopping and Harry Potter stole from Alexander McQueen. It was also the week we learned Anna Wintour worked for Penthouse and that Target made us very, very happy.
Ever since Theory president Andrew Rosen hired wunderkind Olivier Theyskens as the brand’s new artistic director, the fashion world has sort of been waiting for the other shoe to drop. But it turns out that Rosen is quite comfortable with his decision, thank you very much, and defended his move and Theyskens’ commercial viability in an interview with Guy Trebay of The New York Times.
Olivier Theyskens‘ capsule collection for Theory was so good, Andrew Rosen has decided to keep him around for a bit longer. Or at least that’s what it seemed like this morning when news broke that Theyskens has been hired as the brand’s new artistic director.
We may have an unhealthy obsession with Anna Wintour, but we’re okay with that. No matter how much we read about her (or how many times we watch The Devil Wears Prada The September Issue) the all-powerful Vogue editor still fascinates us. So in the spirit of all things Anna, we bring to you this weekend’s Anna Wintour gossip roundup.
When news broke Wednesday night that Olivier Theyskens had been tapped to design a capsule collection for Theory, the first word out of almost everybody’s mouth was, “Why?”
It’s been a while, but word is that Olivier Theyskens has finally snagged himself a job. According to WWD, Theyskens has been hired by Theory to create a capsule collection (read: try out) for the Bloomies-friendly label, timed for the Spring / Summer 2011 season.
Olivier Theyskens might be one of fashion’s hottest designers, but he wasn’t always so confident. The long-haired lover of the female form told London’s Sunday Times he used to want to be a girl.
