Leith Clark should receive a gold medal in event styling.
Honor immortalized its Spring 2014 collection (and Zosia Mamet's long hair) in a dark but super girly fashion film.
Meanwhile, Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne reportedly jet off to Coachella, because obviously.
If you want to look like you're straight out of a Lula editorial, here's how.
We're basically obsessed with everything stylist/Lula EIC Leith Clark does and her first design gig is no exception.
Women's issues and women voters are key in this upcoming election. And the fashion industry, dominated by women, hasn't been shy about getting involved. Today brings us a new PSA about women's issues dreamed up by some of our favorite women in fashion and entertainment. Tavi Gevinson's there, and so is Alexa Chung, Lena Dunham, Leith Clark, Karen Elson and many more. Who else can you spot?
LOS ANGELES--It was an evening of film and fashion last night as L.A.’s style setters crowded into TENOVERSIX to fete What’s Up, a short film by Gia Coppola (Sofia's niece and mini-me) in collaboration with Wren’s Melissa Coker and styled by Lula Magazine’s Leith Clark (who unfortunately missed her flight and wasn’t able to join in on the fun). The film, which first debuted at New York Fashion Week spring 2012, follows the adorable and very bored Bella Zarember as she looks for ways to fight her ennui in the City of Angels. Rich and bored in LA? Sounds like a Coppola movie! And what do you do when you're a stylish bespectacled LA high schooler with time to kill? Change in and out of lots of different outfits (all Wren styled by Leith Clark) and accessories with jewelry from Wren x Fallon. “The clothes speak for themselves, so I just focused on everything else,” said Coppola, who, like the rest of us, cites aunt Sofia as her style idol.
We love Lula almost as much as we love Elle Fanning, so we're starting to get a little jealous of Tavi getting to meet and interview all of our favorite people at the age of 15, but what can you do? Anyway, Tavi had high tea with stylist and Lula editor-in-chief Leith Clark in a suite at the Pierre Hotel in New York and the highlights of their conversation have just been published on NOWNESS. They sat in "fluffy marshmallow beds" and talked for an hour and a half about how Lula has inspired Tavi, why Tavi started her blog, and why she's nostalgic for things she's too young to have experienced. Even more of their convo, which maybe wasn't "serious" enough for NOWNESS, is on the site's Facebook page, where they talk about remakes of '80s movies and Zac Efron. Tavi also bring up her best friends Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. Here are the best things we learned: The first issue of Lula was kind of an accident:
I have a new obsession. Orla Kiely’s namesake ready-to-wear line seems to have shamefully few fans in the US, though I can’t imagine that will be the case for much longer. The label seems to have a strong following in the UK where it is based, made evident by the Brit-heavy crowd at Tuesday night's party for the designer at the Ace Hotel's Liberty Hall, which included The Like's Tennessee Thomas, Giles Deacon and soon-to-be divorcée Karen Elson. (P.S. a little birdy told us that "divorce party" didn't actually happen.)more
We've become huge fans of the Hollywood Reporter over the last few months, mostly due to Janice Min's excellent makeover of the trade publication. Staffer Merle Ginsberg navigates the LA fashion scene with an entertaining mix of gossip, insider news, and general knowledge that is not only rare for the West Coast, but rare for fashion writing in general. So we were thrilled to see Ginsberg's list of the 25 most powerful stylists in Hollywood covering this week's issue. Rachel Zoe obviously ranks number one, with names like Nicole Chavez, Annabel Tollman, Brad Goreski, Leslie Fremar, and Kate Young rounding it out. See the full list below, and read the Zoe cover story here.
Honor designer Giovanna Randall burst onto the New York fashion scene in a big way. The med school dropout just showed her second collection and her first ever runway show--but when Alexa Chung is sitting front row, you know you're making the right kind of buzz. And the collection lived up to the hype. We were already big fans of Honor's ultra feminine and dreamy aesthetic after her first presentation last season, and her fall 2011 collection confirmed our love. It was elegant and thoughtful and luxe with a '70s vibe that wasn't overbearing. Pants were flowy and wide-legged, paired with tunic tops with a thick belt. Long sleeved column dresses that were cinched at the waist billowed as the models walked (my personal favorite). Even though most looks were paired with adorable Repetto oxfords or patent loafers, the clothes made each already tall and thin model look taller and thinner. In fact, the skirts that hit just above the ankle looked even chicer because they were paired with flats. The color palette shifted in blocks from muted in putties and black at the start to a shock of raspberry on printed tent minidresses with deep pockets followed by rich emerald on a coat and in chiffon dresses to finish the show. When I spoke with Randall after the show to ask how she felt she said she could sum up her feelings about the show in three words: "A fucking miracle."
