I am one of, like, three people in the world who doesn’t think that people falling is funny. But I realize that most everybody does, so for you guys — here’s a montage of models falling. Enjoy!
Chanel is one of the biggest trendsetters season after season. After all, we’re talking about the brand that made temporary tattoos chic. Global creative director of beauty Peter Philips is inarguably a makeup mastermind and his bedazzled eyebrows are nothing if not striking, but I pray that this latest venture will not be the next one to make its way off the runway and out into the streets. High fashion is high fashion for a reason. This is the reason.
I don’t know Vogue Japan Editor-at-Large Anna Dello Russo, but I like to imagine that she exudes a kind of “Grey Gardens”-y vibe: dotty, inappropriate and definitely camp. After all, this is a woman who’s prone to showing up at fashion shows with styrofoam eggs on her head. Can doddering spinsterism and a lifetime of sweater bikinis be far off? I hope not. After the jump, some of Dello Russo’s more awesomely out-there outfits.
Last week Paris fashion house Lanvin, helmed by the esteemed designer Alber Elbaz, debuted its Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Trim, elegant silhouettes flitted down the runway as Tilda Swinton and Dita Von Teese looked on — and Elbaz proved once again why he’s one of the fashion world’s favorites. Take a look!
Ah! Paris Fashion Week! The best fashion week of them all, if you ask me. We’ve assembled more of our favorite looks from the Paris shows, and will be updating our survey throughout the week. So check back early and often!
To be honest, Milan Fashion Week — which just wrapped up this week — isn’t really my favorite. The designers that show out of Milan tend to be older, stodgier and less young and fun than their London and New York counterparts, yet lack the romance and refinement of the Paris shows. Considering Milan’s position as a somewhat secondary Italian city — whose place on the world map is linked pretty much solely to its status as a design city these days — it’s not surprising that its designers would be somewhat more limited in their scope. Even so, there was some beautiful clothing coming out of Italy’s fashion capital. Check out some of our favorite pieces from the Fall/Winter 2012 collections.
Ah! Paris Fashion Week! The best fashion week of them all, if you ask me. Where designers like Chloe, Julien David and Gareth Pugh convene to show off their latest collections and the fashion crowd still smokes ciggies and acts totally bored. We’ve assembled our favorite looks from the first round of Paris shows, and will be updating our survey throughout the week. So check back early, and often!
Boobs happen. Everywhere. Even on the fanciest runways of some of the top fashion houses in the world. Whether they’re intentional — as in the sheer confections of the latest Christian Dior collection — or unintentional — like when a model’s nipple accidentally slips out of a silky gown, there are an awful lot of boobies on the runway. And we’ve collected some of our favorite just for you in this very, very NSFW gallery. Check out all the fabulous breasts after the jump.
We love looking at all the crazy fashions on display at fashion week, but sometimes the hair is even better. While designers like Sister by Sibling and Louise Gray took their fashion show hair to a crazy place, we also loved the more reserved and retro-inspired looks on at Burbery Prorsum and Alexander McQueen. As fashion week continues in London, we’ve combed through (get it?) the shows, to bring you some of the best and most out-there hairstyles. Click through to check out the cool locks on display at London Fashion Week, and check back often for more hair updates.
There are normal fashion shows, and then there are fashion shows where a model lights a barbecue in the middle of the runway. As you can see, the Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov couture show in Paris this week was the latter.
