Plus, the resale market threatens to devalue Birkin bags.
A (cover) star is born.
The veteran editors — fashion director and executive fashion editor, respectively — are reportedly set to take on reduced roles.
And Cate Blanchett wore Crocs.
It was difficult not to be a bit starstruck having opportunity to chat candidly to Grace Coddington, who told us that even she gets stuck for inspiration sometimes (hard to believe!).
On the way into the Miu Miu show yesterday, we spotted campaign face Chloe Sevigny hanging out next to Vogue's Grace Coddington and Tonne Goodman. Despite her intimidating companions, we managed to grab a second with the consummate downtown girl to find out what it was like to reprise her role as the face of Miu Miu 16 later.
Lena Dunham is reportedly dating Fun.'s guitarist Jack Antonoff. This could be beneficial for Dunham's closet, as Jack's sister is designer Rachel Ant
Anyone who thinks a fashion shoot is as easy as trying on clothes and taking pictures has obviously never styled someone in Haider Ackermann. Just ask Tonne Goodman--who, according to The Independent, had more than a little trouble outfitting Lady Gaga for her March 2011 Vogue cover. Apparently, the draping of Gaga's Romanesque kimono Ackermann ensemble was so complex, Goodman (or as The Independent refers to her, "the hapless fashion editor") "called the designer to ask for his personal help dressing her."
Dont judge a book by its cover... Unless it's a magazine, in which case, sometimes the cover is the deciding factor of whether or not to buy the mag altogether. The best covers of 2011 returned to a new naturalism and a fun aesthetic, like the Lara Stone T cover we're still drooling over, pictured at left. Sure, there's still room for artifice in fashion (see: Stella Tennant on Vogue Italia), but 2011 was a year for reflecting on natural beauties, incredible models, and stellar photography. After toiling over hundred of covers, we're bringing you "The Best" according to us. Did we forget your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
We have a few significant moves to report on this week. Publicists arranging Fashion Week invites and seating charts, take note. Candy Pratts Price, who was laid off last year from her position as Style.com's executive fashion director, was just hired as Vogue.com's new creative director. The two sites are owned by the same company. Basically, this is just a shuffle that took a really long time to happen. Nancy MacDonell, another former Style.com editor, has just been hired at AHAlife as a contributing editor. Gilles Bensimon was also just hired by the new lifestyle shopping site as creative director.
Vanity Fair's 2010 International Best Dressed List was released today, and it's a mishmash of the obvious--Michelle Obama, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy--and the odd: Stacey Bendet Eisner, Dylan Lauren. (We know they look fine--but really, are they the best dressed in the world?) Most Notable: Cindy Leive, Glamour Editor-in-Chief While Leive is known for her awesome editing skills, her style chops have yet to be tested. Could this be the beginning of her grooming for Vogue? Nora Ephron, Writer We love Ephron's words, but we also love her Jil Sander wardrobe. Waris Ahluwalia Not only does Waris have impeccable style, he's also a lovely person. Most Missed (Really, how could VF have left these names off the list?)
Click through for the best of the best from the CFDA Awards, including Iris Apfel, Tonne Goodman, and Jamie Bochert.
Tonight at the CFDA Awards, actor Anthony Mackie said that the event really is like the Oscars of fashion. As one of the few people in the crowd who has attended both ceremonies, he should know. And it did seem like an abbreviated, less-hokey Academy Awards. There were skits--Diddy starred in a short that introduced the menswear nominees--celebrity presenters--Isabella Rossellini, Jessica Biel--and even some heartfelt speeches. Stay-tuned tomorrow for our round-up of the evening's best-dressed. And now, the winners:
