Celebs Do Halloween: With Halloween washed away by Sandy, we had a good time living vicariously through our favorite stars. Some, like Ellen Degeneres and Miley Cyrus, dressed as fellow celebs, and others sparked controversy with their costumes.
R-Patz and K-Stew Face Off: There was a rumor that Robert Pattinson inked his own fragrance deal with Dior (which was later denied), but we still needed to know: Who would broodily sell their fragrance better, Kristen or Rob?
After Sandy ripped through New York, leaving most of Manhattan below 34th Street in darkness and under water, the fashion pack–including Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Marc Jacobs, Mary-Kate Olsen and more–have been forced to relocate to higher ground.
Here’s where they’re staying. Way to hold it down at the Marriott Chris Benz!
Last night celebs and fashion’s VIPs were out in their red carpet finest at not one but two major industry events. It was the Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars in NYC, and a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund fashion show at the Chateau Marmont in LA. How did they choose which one to attend?
Mario Testino is one of the most recognized photographers in the world, known for his work in the fashion industry and his intimate portraits of the British Royal Family. Even though he has released several books and been the subject of London’s National Portrait Gallery’s most successful exhibition to date, he is only just now getting his first US exhibition in an unexpected place: the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
Click through to check out pictures from the opening and hear what Testino himself had to say about the new exhibit and his model muses.
There’s no doubt that Anna Wintour and Mario Testino have a close working relationship–a fact that was underscored last night, at the opening of Testino’s first US exhibition, “In Your Face,” held at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
Given the number of shots in the exhibition that come from Vogue editorials–and the number of Vogue covers Testino consistently shoots every year–it’s obvious there’s something between Anna and Mario that makes for great photos.
So, when I saw Anna (looking fabulous in Prada S/S 2013, by the way) chatting with Vogue European editor-at-large Hamish Bowles at last night’s cocktail reception (more on that later) I knew I had to ask them what it is about Mario that makes him one of Vogue‘s go-to photographer.
Ann Romney has all the makings of a political wife fashion icon: She’s pretty, she’s blonde and, unlike past aspiring first ladies, she has at least a passing interesting in fashion. She’s worn new and established designers (Reed Krakoff, Oscar de la Renta, respectively) as well as contemporary cool brand J.Brand, and we think she always manages to look pretty great (if conservative). But despite all this, the fashion industry is noticeably cooler towards Romney.
We receive press release upon press release about Michelle’s campaign wardrobe. It’s become a major coup for a designer to dress Michelle Obama. But we’ve yet to receive one–one–about Ann Romney’s.
Prolific television writer/director/producer Ryan Murphy was quite possibly the most popular guy at the Michael Kors-honoring God’s Love We Deliver event last night.
Full disclosure: Like Leah, I kind of fell behind on the show last season. But despite the show’s absence on my DVR queue, I’d have to live in a hole to not know that Sarah Jessica Parker guest stars this season as a Vogue.com editor with wardrobe tips from real life Vogue editrix Anna Wintour (and makeup inspired by former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld).
So, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to ask Glee‘s well-connected helmer for some insider tips on what other fashion-y plans he has in store. And that’s when things got really good.
