The vibe we were getting from Katy Perry’s Elle cover was an awesomely grunge-glam, fierce high fashion MySpace bedroom selfie, which is convoluted enough. But the vibe they were going for is even more of a mash-up.
Victoria Beckham has unveiled her Victoria, Victoria Beckham Fall 2013 collection, and this season her girl has taken an androgynous turn. Don’t get us wrong, there are still plenty of dresses in the mix, but the tailoring is more masculine, which means room-to-breath. And that’s something that Beckham doesn’t afford herself very often. Still the line is dripping with that quintessentially Victoria blithely chic sleekness that we know and love.
We’re getting vibes of a noirish Edward Scissorhands, American Beauty or The Stepford Wives from Prada’s Fall 2013 campaign video. Though Prada needs no malfunctioning domestic sex robots to make the mundane fascinating.
#CandidlyNicole Episode 14 crams an all-too-familiar movie trope into four all-too-short minutes: Our heroine takes her dog to see a pet psychic, but ends up learning more about herself.
Can’t make it to The Floating City? See The Door by Ava DuVernay right here.
Our morning has been made now that we’ve come to know Black Shadow, a full-on rockabilly gang that cruises though Tokyo on motorcycles. Who brought this new age mob of ’50-inspired easy riders to our attention? Phillip Lim, in his new fall fashion film Sonomama, which means “as you are” in Japanese.
“I have my grill in here,” explained Miley Cyrus, as she pulled out three pairs of shiny teeth jewelry from her retainer case. “I don’t know how Harper’s that is.” The “We Can’t Stop” singer sat down with Harper’s BAZAAR’s executive editor Laura Brown for the latest installment of The Look, and as we imagined, there were plenty of she’s just being Miley moments.
Looks like Honey Boo Boo retired just in time.
“We consider what we do a Wizard of Oz situation,” Thomas Bangalter, one half of Daft Punk, told Vogue. Considering that we’re just as intrigued by the French electronic pair as we were by the mysterious old man behind the curtain when we were children, we can get behind this analogy. And since they’re always stirring our curiosity, we especially envious of Karlie Kloss, because Chloé-clad traipsing around New York City with the duo, as well as checking her makeup in one of their metallic helmets, for a Vogue spread is just another day on the job.
Much like being on an acid trip, Proenza Schouler’s fall campaign video heightens your senses (or at least it tricks you into thinking it does). The colors are more vivid, the lights brighter, and in true hallucinogen form, there’s even parrot sightings and galaxy-hopping. Sasha Pivovarova stars in the trip amidst psychedelic shapes and patterns, and while it might scare you at first, you soon realize you’re essentially taking LSD with the Russian beauty, and that’s actually kind of a fashion dream come true.
Holy. Naomi. Campbell. We’ve been wetting ourselves over Laura Brown’s tweets and ‘grams about the latest episode of The Look, and after we watched it, we promptly emptied our overexcited bladders again.
If there’s anything we can profess to know about Talia, it’s that the honorary Cover Girl would not want a world of beauty devotees mourning today. She’d want us to cue up a makeup tutorial and learn how to paint our lids like a sunset. She’d want us to say ‘screw the wig’ (whatever it is we may hide behind), and play around in pots of color. So, dig in. Put your face on, and smile for Talia.
If, when you dream of rummaging through Diane von Furstenberg’s secret archives at her sprawling Connecticut estate Cloudwalk, you imagine time slowing down and theatrical Belgian music in your ears, Natalie Joos won’t spoil the fantasy.
Ever since we read that fascinating New York Times essay chronicling the making of Paul Schrader’s The Canyons — you know, the one where Lindsay Lohan sneaks off set to go partying until 6:00 AM then wins back the director’s affection by tapping into her personal traumas in a tragically post-meta strain of method acting — we’ve been dying to see the film.
What does a cocktail of Cara Delevingne, dubstep, and NYC, give you other than a party? Short answer: The DKNY Fall 2013 campaign. Naturally, we weren’t surprised to see that Donna Karan tapped the Brit model, considering the she’s been in just about every campaign we’ve seen so far and she closed DKNY’s fall show set to one very bass-heavy Frank Sinatra and Biggie mash-up.
What happens when two saucy ladies meet at Serendipity? Gold — of the comedy and ice cream variety, that is. As part of her web series The Look, Harper’s BAZAAR executive editor Laura Brown invited Sofia Vergara to the legendary NYC dessert institution for some good ol’ ladies-who-lunch chitchat.
Rihanna’s third collection for high street brand River Island is due to hit stores on September 12, and those crop tops have not been designing themselves.
In today’s other dancing-in-campaign-videos news, Miu Miu’s Fall-Winter 2013 short film also contains models breaking it down in front of a camera — only this time, the clothes are polka-dottier, the setting’s more surreal and the moves are slightly more coordinated.
Whether you’ve seen it firsthand or just going by word of mouth, you know that the backstage of a fashion show can be as wild as the Serengeti. This said, fashion films have a way of making all the craziness go away, and allowing only perfection to shine through, which is definitely the case in NOWNESS’ behind-the-scenes video of the Fall 2013 Tory Burch show.
