Glam Damn It
It's quite pleasing when a model doesn't feel compelled to embark on a career as an actress. A host or guest reporter? Okay. But Oscar-chasing gals who depend on their designer friends for red carpet looks - no thank you!
Coco Rocha, on the other hand, is very adorable. The supermodel, who has walked her massive share of runways, lent a few lines to a reporting gig sometime last year, which has led to her latest assignment from ET Canada - reporting from the Grammys later this month. However, Coco knows when enough is enough. Most importantly, she knows when to return to the runway. Only this time, Coco hints that she won't be walking out until the end, to take a bow for her own show. At least, that's what she hopes is to come in September. The model-turned-designer has been working on a dress collection - the name of which she promises will be phenomenal, but remains a secret. She hints to The Daily that she believes in high fashion, affordable clothing, and loves the Victorian 1800s. With so much on her plate, who knows if we will ever see her sly smirk on the catwalk again?
Marc Jacobs may not have made a runway appearance at Milan's menswear Fashion Week (we forgive you, Marc!), but he nonetheless used his F/W 2010 inspirations to create a professional bevy.
Because stars are totally professional. Regardless, the collection has character, and each piece actually looks different from one next one. This season showcases fun apparel for men who actually have jobs, and Jacobs brings his signature downtown praticality in tow. At least he's halfway given up on the Scottish kilts. Okay, they're skirts. But hey, Kid Cudi likes to get tossled in them as well. This season, Jacobs kept it subtle with a half-draped skirt to complement staple accesories, shirts and blazers. Let's not forget the bad-boy blazer, either.
Versace is in trouble - and Donatella isn't having it. Who's going to pay for her bleach dye, bathroom bodyguards and tans if Versace goes under?
The fashion label already pulled the plug on its remaining Japan stores, in addition to opting to outsource to PR Consulting, instead of keeping its US press headquarters, so what's next besides transparent minis and stilt-high platforms?
The blonde bombshell will be designing luxury mobile devices for Versace fans that just have to have everything Versace. That doesn't include you or me - plus, the price is estimated to surpass the phone Dior launched at $5,040.
Take a look at Jessica Simpson donning her jeans, and tell us if you're interested in her designing your next pair?
Ready or not, here she comes! Simpson is heading to Jones Apparel group, baby!
For? Well take a wild guess.
Another celebrity line! Joy is oozing out of our fingertips as we type up a petition against this.
Simpson, who already has a successful handbag and shoe line, which generatd more than 400 million in 2009 sales, feels the desire to give girls a full Simpson lifestyle of leggings, skinnies and flares. Simpson says, "I was inspired to create a great denim line that complements the entire Jessica Simpson lifestyle brand — a jean that becomes a girl’s best friend, that everyday go-to pair.”
How thoughtful. Really.
Typical male models acknowledge the lack of attention they receive - granted. And, typical male models jump at the opportunity to walk in major runway shows, even if the exchange isn't cash, but clothing (I'm just saying) - because, typical male models understand exposure.
Jesus Luz is not a typical male model.
Luz opted out of Milan Fashion Week - guaranteed castings and all. However, that's what happens when Madonna is your cougar, no?
Luz, who is also Brazilian, walked out twice - once in shades, and again with the designer - who, might I add, will now be globally recognized by Madonna fans everywhere.
Okay, I know we promised you that Alex Watson would walk in Burberry Men's fashion show after his debut in the label's Spring 2010 ads with sibling Emma Watson - but, that's what the rumors had promised us! He did, however, sit front row at the show (looking very attractive, might I add) with a couple of buddies - some whom have walked for Burberry in previous seasons.
Nonetheless, Burberry continued to dabble its masculinity with feminity - offering lean silhouttes bombarded with voluminous outerwear.
Christopher Bailey expressed his attraction towards utilitarian efforts with staple colors and fun cuff details.
And then there were the shoes, which looked quite dreadful (in my own opinion), but definitely desirable by cold weather standards.
The name Hermes, while often mispronounced by the fashion illiterate, has meant the epitome of high-end retail and fine leather for almost 200 years. It makes sense that they would want to make Las Vegas' own luxury capital, CityCenter, its new Vegas home.
Hermes first came to Vegas in 1998 when it opened a store at the Bellagio. Then, a year later, a second store in the Wynn and Encore's shopping passage opened as well. Now, a third store at Crystals in CityCenter has opened and will become the new Hermes flagship store.
Little Kate keeps everything sentimental - noting her inspirations came from her favorite colors, her grey denim and of course, the pony printed valise her boyfriend (and now fiance), Jamie Hince, brought back from San Francisco.
Of course, it's a typically model-chic bevy. But ultimately, it's the thought that counts, right?
Moss' Longchamp collection will be available February 11, just in time for fashion week. Classic.
Just weeks after Lara Stone showed the world she's capable of competing in more than one tongue wrestling match with boyfriend, British comedian David Walliams, Stone and Walliams (moreso Walliams) announced their recent engagement.
Take that Kate Moss!
Walliams suprised Stone on a job in Brazil, subsequent to receiving blessings from Stone' parents.
Well, in humble model fashion of course, it looks very delicate - with a large stone, surrounded by several complementing diamonds - and it's vintage
Even better, Walliams is rumored to have already requested Giles Deacon to design for the wedding. Where did this man come from, and are there anymore left?
No word yet on when the two plan to wed, but I'm hoping that whenever it is, it's after a Balmain runway show and Christophe Decarnin sends her Stoned-off onto her honeymoon with photo op ready attire.
If Hannibal Lecter had cared more about his apparel than his next victim, he would have probably made the castings for Alexander McQueen's Homme season.
With death motifs lurking in more than one label for the F/W season, McQueen focused on 3/4 length outerwear, face masks, and prints that gave us a flash back to the last two womenswear seasons.
With charming haircuts and skull & bone prints, can you detect a hint of where Alex may be headed may be for his women's collection?
Far away from here, I hope!
