It sounds like we'll be seeing a lot more of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover star this year. And could her forthcoming projects involve high fashion?
Ironically, in spite of last night's hostessing duties, the talk show host doesn’t really indulge in NYC nightlife when she’s here.
Stuart Weitzman has designed shoes for everyone from the Queen of England to Beyonce, but it's his staple 50/50 boot that has truly become a legacy. The elastic-backed, knee-high style is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year (time flies, eh?), and Weitzman is feting in a major way: He's designed 10 exclusive styles of the 50/50 boot for Gilt.
To fete the opening of its new SoHo location, Canadian brand Joe Fresh went for a cool, downtown vibe--welcoming fashion girls-about-town like Kyleigh Kuhn and Tennessee Thomas with special margaritas and music mixed by DJ Kiss. But by far the coolest thing we saw was a live graffiti installation by famous artist collective UR New York.
When we think of Kate Hudson, running shorts and no-seam sports bras aren't exactly the first things that come to mind. And yet, the bohemian actress has partnered with subscription e-commerce site JustFab, Inc. to design the activewear line Fabletics, which launched this month.
It was very cool and very French in Los Angeles on Thursday night at the party celebrating the first year of the Isabel Marant boutique on leafy, intimate Melrose Place in West Hollywood. Like the best hostess, Marant floated around the party throughout the night, seemingly hugging and kissing everyone.
Target and Feed USA asked a lot of the fashion crowd yesterday. For one, it was the first big fashion event in Brooklyn maybe ever--the first one I've been to, anyway. But the fashion crowd--around 500 people total, we heard--happily (and some not-so-happily) found its way to Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO on a lovely June evening for a dinner party celebrating Target's latest collaboration with FEED USA and Lauren Bush Lauren. In addition, guests were asked to wear red.
We've all heard the phrase "Nothing lasts forever," but Visionaire is seeking to disprove that theory with its 63rd edition. Titled "Forever" and entirely made of metal, the magazine is a collaboration with G-Shock and features eight imprinted images by artists like Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Karl Lagerfeld, Yoko Ono, Richard Avedon, Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari in a metal casing--it's the world's first all metal magazine. The party took the silvery metal theme and ran with it. The Clocktower Gallery was transformed into a silver playland complete with silver confetti, mylar balloons, and even glitter cocktails. Guests including Cecilia Dean, James Kaliardos, Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea, Ladyfag, Hilary Rhoda, Heidi Mount, Constance Jablonski, and Vika Gazinskaya committed to the metallic theme with glittering outfits or accessories, although no one tried harder than a girl wearing light up mouse ears. We caught up with Visionaire founder and all-over inspirational person Cecilia Dean to get the low down on how the magazine was made and what she wishes could last forever.
This past Saturday, I braved H&M's Fifth Avenue flagship to chat with adorable Carrie Diaries star AnnaSophia Robb. She was there to host, along with Seventeen (whose cover we can only assume she'll be gracing soon) an in-store event celebrating the launch of the retailer's new "Denim Days" campaign.
Sunday night, Girls introduced the world (outside of downtown NYC) to AndrewAndrew, the HBO show's first real cameo by a New York personality. Well, two of them, technically. Last night, we caught up with the Andrews about Girls, Lena Dunham, and some of the challenges of dressing alike every single day. Oh and why watching the risque show with your mom (which we've done) is like, according to one Andrew, "watching glory hole porn with your family." "No, it's like watching Schindler's List with...Germans," countered the other Andrew. Read on.
It looks like three’s a trend with high end labels staging fashion shows for their childrenswear lines. Fendi did it, followed by Oscar de la Renta, and last night at its Upper East Side boutique, Milly unleashed even more adorable pint-sized models into the fashion world. Designer Michelle Smith’s first ever show for her year-old Milly Minis line was a collaboration with the cast of Broadway musical Annie, whose cast members walked the pseudo-runway (along with Smith's adorable daughter Sophia).
Heidi Klum cancelled her annual over-the-top Halloween bash this year in the wake of Hurricane Sandy--but clearly she couldn't let that amazing Cleopatra costume go to waste. So, as promised, she held the make-up (Holi-ween?) party this weekend, which was repurposed to benefit the American Red Cross. Click through to see what everyone wore.
Last night in New York, Michael Kors received the Golden Heart Award for Lifetime Achievement for his 20-year support and commitment to God’s Love We Deliver, the New York non-profit that provides nutritious meals and counseling to people suffering from severe illnesses--and the stars, including Gwyenth Paltrow and Brooklyn Decker, came out in droves to celebrate. Among them was SNL's Seth Meyers, who had some pretty great (hilarious) fashion advice for the presidential candidates. Click through to read what he had to say and get the scoop on last night's soiree.
Last night a line of well-heeled ladies wound down 54th st., all hoping to get into the Manolo Blahnik store to hear Cyndi Lauper perform. The pop icon was there to promote her new musical, called Kinky Boots, for which she wrote the score (it opens on Broadway in April). So it was only fitting that Lauper have some kinky boots of her own. And who better to make them than Manolo Blahnik.
We took a break from stalking Ryan Lochte at last night's Brian Atwood fete to check in with the man of the hour himself.
Dont let the mango-chili pops fool you! Despite the chill vibe that these snacks and other yummy food truck bites lent last night's Prabal Gurung x IC
Ever notice how the waiters and ushers at fashion events are often more attractive than the guests? As you've probably guessed, they come from event p
What do you get when you combine two dashingly handsome, charming and well-connected Italian men? In this case, you get Lifestylemirror.com--a well curated content-based website that acts as a portal for online shopping. Last night the site’s founders Emanuele Della Valle and Francesco Carrozzini hosted a party at the website’s new event space in Chelsea to welcome summer, and there was no shortage of free flowing Ruinart champagne and well-heeled friends. It’s no surprise those friends include the likes of Anne Hatheway (looking very gamine with pixie hair and Charlotte Olympia cat flats), Natalie Joos, Johan Lindberg (who told us he wears a scarf, white t-shirt and jacket even to the beach), and Meredith Melling Burke, just to name a few, considering both men were already part of the industry in utero. Della Valle is son of Tod's billionaire CEO Diego Della Valle, and Carrozzini is son of Vogue Italia EIC Franca Sozzani.
When Persol announced they’d be celebrating a second run of their "Persol Magnificent Obsessions" exhibition series--which honors classic film-making--at the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, we knew it’d be worth the schlep. (Especially since we figured a party mixing film buffs, fashion industry insiders, prosecco, and Terry Richardson as DJ was bound to be a hell of a good time.) So we got on the chartered bus and headed over the Triboro Bridge.
The Costume Institute Gala at the Met is often referred to as the Oscars of the East coast. Adding to that reputation was Anja Rubik, who gave the e
PALM SPRINGS--When it comes to fashionable music festivals, it doesn’t get any better than Coachella. So in spite of unseasonably chilly weather and a bout of torrential rain preceding the weekend, we packed our hippie chic best and headed out to Palm Springs in search of the best parties and people. There was no shortage of fashion brands clamoring to make their presence known amongst this stylish scene:
Salvatore Ferragamo celebrated the re-opening of their Fifth Avenue flagship last night with a highly-spirited party attended by industry players and celebrities like Nina Garcia, Frederic Fekkai, and Solange Knowles. Guests navigated a floor filled with freshly-ice-luged drinks and a Ferragamo gelato cart as the model brand’s newest male face, Garrett Neff, was dispatched about the crowd to chat with VIPs and generally make all the ladies feel a bit giddy. [UPDATE: Neff told us he was the new face of the brand but Ferragamo's PR has confirmed that, well, he's not. Don't lie to us Garret!]
