Even the models were cast with the era's iconic musicians in mind.
Last night, the industry's coolest cool kids--model Nicole Trunfio and her guitarist boyfriend Gary Clark Jr., Ashley Smith, Tali Lennox, Suno's Max Osterweis and girlfriend (and Opening Ceremony buyer) Kate Foley--gathered for an intimate dinner at the West Village's Little Owl. What was the cause for celebration? It wasn't a new designer collab or the opening of a boutique. Nope--the fash set had gathered to fete the launch of an Afghani school yearbook. Didn't see that one coming, didja? Let us explain...
Just when we thought Diane von Furstenberg's life couldn't get any cooler, well, it does. Natalie Joos got a chance to photograph the designer's Connecticut estate--which has a name btw: Cloudwalk--and mine the designer's personal vintage collection for her site Tales of Endearment, and the result is pretty epic.
Ever come across an old photo of your mom--you know, a photo from before you even existed--and thought, "Damn, my mom looks good" and then "OMG I want that whole outfit"? Piper Weiss did, so she started a blog called My Mom the Style Icon where she posts photos of stylish moms that date from the 1920s through the 1980s, tells the stories of the moms in the photos, and offers up hilarious commentary on their outfits. That blog is now a book, and last night Coach threw a party to celebrate its release--just in time for mother's day. (Seriously, buy it now for your mom). True to her mom-style obsession, Weiss, who by day is an editor at Yahoo! Shine (you should read her stuff there because it's hilarious), wore a vintage Pierre Cardin dress that was her mom's in the 70s that she gave what she calls a "a shoulder pad-ectomy" and had shortened. Mama Weiss, the inspiration for the book, was there too, looking stylish as ever. There are exceptions to every rule, but it seems style is more often than not passed down from mothers to child. So we brainstormed with Weiss to come up with the ten of the most fashionable mother and daughter pairs (and one mother-son pair), and she offered her two cents on each stylish duo. What other stylish mother daughter pairs did we leave off?
