We could be bitter that Ralph Lauren is pledging to restore a French institution instead of one here in his mother country, but when you look further into the history of the École National Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, one of Paris’ most famous art schools, it starts to make more sense. What we are wondering about is why one of the haute couture houses didn’t seize the opportunity to save the struggling institution. Leave it to the Americans, ay?
Trends come and go, but Ralph Lauren is forever. Yesterday’s runway show was everything we have come to know and love about the quintessential American designer. We stepped inside from the brisk morning air and were greeted with a lavish bouquet of magenta and lilac blooms, Valentine’s Day chocolates courtesy of Dylan’s Candy Bar, and a trio of jaw-dropping antler chandeliers draped and dripping with crystals. Once the show started, it was clear the designer had taken inspiration from the land of czarinas and “Anna Karenina”, though, as always, he kept to the house codes of luxurious, classic Americana.
Rugby, the younger version of super-preppy brand Ralph Lauren geared toward college students, is being discontinued eight years after its founding in 2004.
Ralph Lauren and his brand are synonymous with American fashion, and as such, he’s the latest to get profiled in Bloomberg‘s Game Changers series.
Robyn Lawley has already earned her stripes as a plus-size high fashion model, posing for the covers of major magazines including French Elle, Vogue Australia and Vogue Italia, as well as fronting a much-lauded lingerie campaignfor British brand Boux Avenue. Now, however, she’s landed what’s arguably her biggest gig yet, as Ralph Lauren‘s first-ever plus-size campaign model.
There were a lot of things to love about Ralph Lauren‘s spring 2013 runway show Thursday morning — the matador-inspired jackets, Karlie Kloss‘ inimitable smize (sorry, Tyra), the civilized buzz that has come to define the week’s closing show for us — but the top honor goes to the moment Ryan Lochte stroked, nay, groped Anna Wintour‘s bare leg.
A whopping 67 fashion executives earned more than $5 million in 2011, but only six of them were female. And the top female earned around $40 million less than the top male.
Do you know which pair of designers have a vacation home with an 18k gold guest room? How about who boards a $60 million yacht when he needs to take a break his ten other homes around the world? Or whose NYC townhouse used to house twelve separate apartments?

After quite the uproar over the revelation that Ralph Lauren is manufacturing the 2012 U.S. Olympic team’s uniforms in China, the brand has released a double whammy statement not only announcing that it is the “Official Outfitter” of the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic teams, but also promising that the uniforms will be 100% manufactured in the good ole’ U.S. of A.
Yesterday, we told you why we’re not surprised that the Ralph Lauren-designed U.S. Olympic team uniforms were made in China. But it seems that lawmakers don’t feel the same, and neither does Fox News‘ Bob Beckel.
More and more people are hating on Ralph Lauren‘s Opening Ceremony uniforms for the U.S. Olympic Team. The duo over at Fox & Friends questioned the silly French beret, and now ABC News is shocked to find out that the uniforms for our athletes are made in China.
Yesterday, Ralph Lauren revealed the US Olympic Team‘s uniforms for the Opening Ceremony, and we totally thought the accessories made the ensembles looked a lot like naval garb. Especially those berets! But the team over on Fox & Friends seriously didn’t like the Parisian accessory, and took to the airwaves to voice their thoughts.
Ralph Lauren has just unveiled the uniforms that our athletes will be sporting come July 27th, otherwise known as the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony . Spiffy stuff, to be sure, but if we didn’t know any better we’d think the athletes were a unit of naval officers.
Congratulations to up-and-comer Julien David, who was selected as the winner of the 2012 ANDAM Prize yesterday!
Ralph Lauren is sticking with his namesake brand, having just signed a new five-year contract. The 72-year-old founder will remain at the company until at least April of 2017.
Last night, Penelope Cruz, Anja Rubik, and Ricky and Ralph Lauren attended a screening of Woody Allen‘s To Rome With Love in New York, while Kristin Davis, Olivia Munn, and Jane Fonda walked the red carpet for the premiere of HBO‘s new series The Newsroom in Los Angeles. Which coast had better fashion?
If you’re going to commit a crime, it may as well be a fancy one.
And the Hunger Games world tour is officially on. Jennifer Lawrence, her on-screen love interests, and Elizabeth Banks all left the Los Angeles premiere and jetted off to London. They even changed on the way!
