Legendary designer Zac Posen stood as the keynote speaker for the night noting “We are at the frontier of a new universe where we're able to communicate and be voyeurs,” adding that he’s “addicted” to social media. “It's up to all of us in the fashion arena to be responsible for how we create the voice and language and how we work in this new universe.”
The night was full of cheesy hashtags and hilarious anecdotes from the one and only Robert Verdi, who hosted the evening. More humor came through the night as Eva Chen, Lucky Magazine Editor-in chief was late and stuck in traffic and Verdi "winged it" with his own version of the Travolta Oscars disaster by reintroducing Zac Posen as ".. the wickedly talented ... Zain Pertersorn."

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is shopping around a new trend. It is inspired by the look of the Middle East. On paper, this sounds fine. Yet, once on runways, it is scandalously turning heads. And not entirely in a good way.
It's called The Murban.
That's an abbreviation for the male turban. Once common headgear for beautiful goddesses in a David Selznick movie from the 1940s (think Gone with the Wind), the look is now being touted for men. The look entails a swath of white ivory fabric wrapped around the man's head and dotted with a diamond gem. The Murban evokes the style of Middle Eastern princes. Modeling the murban is Karl Lagefeld's young boyfriend and his fave male model, Baptise Gabiconi.

Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No. 5 and there has been a lot of buzz over the respective ads as Pitt's the first male to represent the iconic brand's No. 5 scent.
Joining Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman and Keira Knightley, as a spokesperson, Pitt brings an air of mystery and smolder to the black and white commercials. "It's not a journey. Every journey ends, but we go on," Pitt says in a voice-over as a nature scene is depicted on screen with a pretty woman, then a city scene. "The world turns, and we turn with it. Plans disappear, dreams take over."
Taking home a rumored paycheck of over six-million dollars for the ads, Brad Pitt, at 48, shows us "sexy" has no boundaries. With over 4-million hits on you-tube, his Chanel ad has both the fashion set and the world at large taking notice. "But wherever I go, there you are," he says. "My luck, my fate, my fortune. Chanel No. 5, inevitable."
Some say that George Clooney would have made a better choice. What do you think?! Is there ever such a thing as too much Brad Pitt?
Our first Resort 2013 Roundup highlighted just some of our favorite trends from summer’s debut of the Resort 2013 season. The designers who offered up covetable collections to appease our fashion appetites in between major seasons seemed to have all been on the same page when it came to energizing prints and jet-set-worthy frocks. To sum up part one of our trend roundup, stripes and florals covered everything from mini skirts to wide-leg pajama pants. However, the pre-season Resort collections were just too good not to take notice—there’s still more great fashion we can’t help but talk about.
