She’s far too busy “putting one foot in front of the other” — a demanding feat in five-inch heels, we assure you.
WSJ. threw a huge bash at the MoMA Thursday night to celebrate the work of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, honoring them with the publication’s ‘Innovator of the Year’ award for the second time for their ”monastic classicism that’s redefining American luxury”. Did you hear that, guys? Expensive furry backpacks are the new American luxury! But joking aside and on to the important stuff — everyone showed up in awesome clothes!
The past few months have been filled with editorial changes, the most major of which was Sally Singer‘s departure as the editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Her spot was later filled by WSJ.‘s top dog Deborah Needleman, and now Kristina O’Neill from Harper’s Bazaar has been tapped to head WSJ.
Out with the old, in with the new.
Bloggers take a lot of flak for not being practitioners of “real journalism,” but at least we’ve never reported that photos from a charity event were actually snapped at a major designer runway show. And that’s exactly what The Wall Street Journal, that old bastion of journalistic integrity, did just last night.
Commes des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo doesn’t often give interviews — and the last time she did, she and her interpreter got upset that the reporter gave her words a slight twist. So this interview with The Wall Street Journal went a little differently. Kawakubo took a few questions via email, and the only thing our friends at the Journal had to do was copy and paste her eloquent, straightforward responses.
So, as a guy who’s, you know, sort of into this whole fashion thing, I felt mildly compelled to immediately denounce the much-talked-about Wall Street Journal article that laboriously mourns the fact that dudes do not dress up for dinner anymore. If you haven’t read it, you might want to jaunt over to the Journal’s website and take a gander or two before continuing here.
There’s no point, really, in beating around the bush when it comes to Anna Wintour. So in its recent profile of the Vogue editor-in-chief, fashion decider and all around woman of power, WSJ. magazine went straight to the point — her power. The pulchritudinous golden scepter of influence she wields is large and heavy and often requires its own seat on planes. But the reason Wintour has it in the first place is because she’s forward thinking, has a network of other influential people (including the ones who sign her checks) at her beck and call and is exceptionally good at branding. And she works really, really hard.
Look, we’re not going to beat around the bush here, because we just can’t. Anna Wintour‘s cover of the April issue of WSJ., the lifestyle magazine printed by The Wall Street Journal, is awesome, and in many ways, a lot like the woman it depicts.
“Reality show” is a funny term. Now reality shows are a lot more polished and a lot less, well, real. Now reality shows are a lot more polished and a lot less, well, real. And for many reality stars, there is no backdrop more polished — or coveted — than the shows at Fashion Week.
one are the days of dressing up toddlers to resemble an American Girl doll. In its place, mothers are vicariously test driving the hot adult trends of today by putting them on their own little tykes. The next big trend to circulate community playgrounds nationwide since the debut of denim diapers: tapered jeans for toddlers.
Fashion media is starting to look a lot like a quiz-heavy issue of Cosmo magazine. First the Wall Street Journal outlined the four types of luxury shoppers, and now WWD has a breakdown of the five shopping personalities — with names like Shop-a-Lot Sue and Bubble Barbie, of course — women can have. So, which one are you?
On Monday, when The Wall Street Journal announced that it had hired former Domino editor Deborah Needleman to head its lifestyle glossy WSJ., media minders immediately started making comparisons between her and newly named T Magazine editor Sally Singer.
If you’ve been walking past Soho’s Hollister flagship store in the past month and sensed something iffy about the twitching shirtless models, recent reports confirms that your instincts are telling the truth.
Been wondering why you often stumble upon Chanel suits and Louis Vuitton bags—still bearing their original price tags and ripe for the second-hand taking? Well wonder no more. Apparently you have the lifestyles of the rich and richer to thank because according to the Wall Street Journal, all those pricey discards are evidence that being a socialite is really hard.
They say trends come and go, but according to today’s Wall Street Journal, leather shorts are here to stay. Yes, you read that right. The Wall Street Journal — that buttoned up, strictly tailored, sensible flats-loving bastion of old media — has turned its ballpoint pen on the ultimate in S&M wear: hot pants.
