Drama may ensue during New York’s upcoming fashion week. Because the IMG Fashion event changed venues this year from Bryant Park to Lincoln Center, a contractual mess has occurred between IMG and Lincoln Center’s theatrical labor employee union, which is normally granted work contracts to oversee events on the entire campus. Reports the Wall Street Journal, “Certain events occurring under the umbrella of New York Fashion Week will take place in Lincoln Center facilities that require the use of union labor, and those events will comply with the lease terms of those facilities, according to a person familiar with the matter”; however, there is a slight disagreement because some of the tents will be erected on the plaza (outside) and not in Lincoln Center’s buildings, which may allow IMG to hire others to help oversee and produce the event. The union wants to be the sole labor provider for NY Fashion Week, and if an agreement is not reached, they are considering a protest complete with leafleting and picket lines. Drama! Let’s hope this gets worked out quickly as the week’s September 9 start is just around the corner. [Wall Street Journal] Keep reading »
Bad teeth aside, the idea of English guys is quite romantic. You’ve got your Hugh Grants (awkward/charming), Colin Firths (will fight a man in a fountain for you and love you “just as you are”), and Jude Laws (OK, not romantic, but is damn hot and is one fantasy lay). Needless to say, the accent and cute attire of button-up shirts and oxfords doesn’t hurt either.
While we love Brit style, we’re a bit turned off (we think) by the following weirdness: apparently, guys in London are outfitting their wardrobes with Sherlock Holmes-esque duds. Keep reading »
Most of the time, goth kids are portrayed as the scary ones and Laura Ashley-wearing girls as the picture of innocence. But in this photo shoot from Dis Magazine, the angelic model in the floral dress seems way more demonic then a roomful of Marilyn Manson lovers. [I Love You Nonetheless] Keep reading »
As fashion steps away from the ’80s this fall and returns to ladylike dressing, lace has become a major trend for the season. But this fabric — which can be sweet, sexy, and demure — is best served up in small doses, meaning one key item per outfit. We’ve found a ton of lace clothes for moderate prices — check them out after the jump. Keep reading »
Look, attractive people in expensive clothing! It’s the cast of “The Romantics” modeling the fall collection for J.Crew and there’s a lot more lust-a-licious pics on J.Crew’s site. When you’re done doing that, you simply must watch the trailer about a group of friends with “incestuous dating history.” It looks so good. [J.Crew] Keep reading »
Mothers and daughters tend to share many things. Facial features. Mannerisms. Bad style? Yes, that too. But WeTV is trying to change that with a new makeover show. “You’re Wearing That?” features mothers and daughters who make over each other for a special event. These women get help from personal stylist and host Luciene Salomone, who uses her years and expertise in the fashion industry to steer these women in the right style direction. Luciene will inspire both daughter and mother to re-style the other’s wardrobe, and in the process, each woman will gain confidence in her look. Because, as Luciene says, “The more you put effort into the way you dress, the better you get at it.” Keep reading »
