DJ Steve Aoki shut down a whole block in downtown Manhattan for a runway show turned concert, and debuted some politically charged clothing for his new collection.
Raf Simons staged his SS18 menswear show in the heart of New York City’s Chinatown — centered in a small alleyway that reeked of fish. Surprisingly, the pungent smell and unconventional venue choice didn’t deter A-listers like Julianne Moore, Jake Gyllenhaal, designer Marc Jacobs, or A$AP Rocky from standing outside during peak New York humidity to witness Simons’s show.
From rocking edgy Giambattista Valli frocks to sitting from row at Christian Dior, the 49-year-old songstress is currently ruling the celebrity fashion scene — and for the past week, Vogue has been documenting her every move during Couture Fashion Week in Paris. If that's not enough, between shows, Dion even stripped down to give fans a "naked fact" to ponder.
One of the most iconic accessory trends of all time - the bum bag - is back. But this time it's the boys working the fashion.
A number of eclectic — and questionable — pieces and trends have emerged from fashion weeks around the world over the years. Some of the most recent looks from a swim show during Australian Fashion Week certainly stood out because of an unusual accessory that was featured on the runway. Arm floaties were one designer’s accessory of choice during Australian Fashion Week.
Crocs, possibly the most controversial shoes ever, have gotten a stylish upgrade — so much so that you can buy them for almost $400. In September, Scottish fashion designer Christopher Kane collaborated with the brand, adorning the former boat shoes with colorful, sparkly gemstones. During his spring 2017 collection, which debuted during London Fashion Week, models walked the runway in the bejeweled and fur-lined upgrades — and did we mention they’re now on sale for $375 a pair?
Nicki Minaj was certainly the centre of attention at the Haider Ackermann Paris Fashion Week show on Saturday. The ‘Anaconda’ rapper opted to rock up to the event with one boob hanging out, in half a Mugler jacket and a metallic Agent Provocateaur pastie covering her nipple. The look immediately drew comparisons to Lil’ Kim’s iconic 1999 MTV Video Music Award outfit, which controversially boasted virtually an identical, and exposing, design. We all know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, however Lil’ Kim was reportedly not happy about Nicki stealing her look.
Bella Hadid is walking the runway during Paris Fashion Week for some of the biggest designers in the world. And, as is tradition, the 20-year-old model seems to be turning the city into her own personal catwalk, debuting some questionable looks as she makes around the City of Lights. It’s been a tough go for the newly single model. Her recent breakup with Canadian musician, The Weeknd, has made headlines after the “Starboy” singer quickly and very publicly, moved on with pop star, Selena Gomez. Although we don’t feel too bad for the famous model and a member of the most genetically gifted family in the world, could this be an over-correction to her newly single status? Is this the supermodel equivalent of getting a new hair-cut post break-up and hitting the gym? Whatever is going on, one thing’s for sure: Bella wants all of the attention, and she will wear literally anything to get it. Click through the slideshow to see what she’s been wearing in Paris, and let us know what you think by tweeting @ YahooStyleCA .
John Galliano strikes again with one of his strangest runway shows yet — that just so happens to be one of the most memorable moments of Paris Fashion Week so far. For the designer’s Maison Margiela Fall/Winter 2017 show, he had a model walk with an oversized, furry black bag over her head. Not only was the fluffy head accessory not accompanied by a voluminous, Marie Antoinette-esque gown, the complementing look included a mere skin-tight nude tank top and blue jeans. The collection showed significant similarities to Galliano’s earlier Maison Margiela Couture show in January which featured an array of garments that included geometric cut outs and loose, colored threads dangling from coat collars to its buttons.
Three cities down and on to Paris we go! After five days of shows and presentations in Milan it’s time to say arrivedecci — but first, a look at the trends that defined the week. Milan has always felt a little stuck in a time warp and mainly because of their classic craftsmanship and the quality of the goods they produce but this time, I am talking about Milanese’s taste in music. The music at so many shows was a straight up throw back to the 80s, from The Cure “Friday I’m in love” at Alberta Ferretti, Pat Benatar’s “We are Young” at No.21, Tiffany’s “I think we’re alone now” at Attico, to Patsy Kensit’s “I’m not scared” at Blumarine, Milan has been all about the throw back rather than the future.
When Dolce & Gabbana puts on a show, it doesn’t happen by halves! If you are an influencer, “it” girl, blogger, or the offspring of a housewife or actress and did not walk the Dolce & Gabbana show on Sunday in Milan, then I’m afraid you are not that major.
Hailey Baldwin didn’t walk today’s Prada show, but her influence was still weirdly felt on the runway. That’s because 10 models wore crocheted bikinis during today’s show, evoking Baldwin’s infamous swimsuit shots with Justin Bieber. Of course, knit swimwear isn’t just clickbait — it’s a classic ’70s style that riffs on rock festivals and beach communes. But thanks to Instagram’s steady takeover of the human psyche, it’s where our minds immediately zoomed. Alas, these tops are for fall 2017, which means you might not be able to get them until the tail end of beach season in August. ...
Kendall Jenner walks the Moschino Fall/Winter 2017 show in Milan on Feb. 23. Carrie Bradshaw had put a bird on her head, but Kendall Jenner just beat her: She opened the Moschino show wearing a UPS crate as a hat.
You know how it is a fun fact that you walk by 36 murderers in your life, and it is fun because they didn't kill you? The rate for modeling agents must be even higher, as they're truly everywhere, just waiting to swoop in when you're elbow-deep in Taco Tuesday. Here, 12 models and how they got their inconceivable, improbable starts. From Marie Clair
One of the models who caught our attention this season was Kelly Gervais, a 5-foot-8-inch New Jersey native. She not only walked in six shows (including Pyer Moss), but also did so while sporting an Afro. “I started modeling when I was about 13 years old, though I didn’t start professionally [until] I was about 15,” Gervais told Yahoo Beauty.
London Fashion Week packed in more sequin, tulle, age diversity and youth culture in four days than any Broadway show on a Saturday night! There was a lot more than just fashion going on with PETA demonstrating outside the London Fashion Week headquarters, more talks of Brexit and American politics, and everyone from Katy Perry to Vanessa Redgrave (!) sitting pretty in the front row. Here’s a look at the trends that came out at LFW2017.
Kate has quickly risen to become a British style icon, favouring flattering designs from the likes of Erdem and Preen. This isn’t a usual for the royal family. Cast your mind back to the 1940s and the days of Christian Dior’s cosy relationship with the British monarchy. The Parisian designer’s New Look and theatrical shows were so well-loved by the Queen that she arranged a private appointment for several members of the royal family at The Savoy.
When Kendall Jenner landed in the capital on Saturday, the entire fashion industry got excited. After all, the American model’s arrival could well mean a FROW appearance at a London Fashion Week show – or a quick spot of catwalk modelling. Last night, Kendall made an appearance at *the* London Fashion Week bash of the season – a post-show get together hosted by Burberry in collaboration with LOVE magazine.
Ashish stayed well away from his Indian heritage this season, instead treading the path of many other designers by speaking out against Donald Trump. In the face of minority groups being targeted by the new President, Ashish sent out an inclusive collection full of American uniforms and positive slogans. Models walked through a broken heart, signalling the start of what would become one of London Fashion Week’s most political shows.
73-year-old Italian icon Benedetta Barzini walked along with 70-year-old British face Jan de Villeneuve. Both worked alongside renowned photographers such as Irving Penn and David Bailey to capture the beauty of the 1960s. Other older faces appeared including 80s star Marie Sophie Wilson and industry stalwart Cecilia Chancellor.
London Fashion Week is upon us, and while the next few days are jam-packed with shows and presentations, here are the three most important designers to watch. This Central Saint Martins graduate created her debut collection for a mere $1,000 and cast friends and other real women from the street in her fashion show. Goddard’s fall/winter 2017 show on Saturday had a dinner party set to highlight her festive designs: bright colors, volume, smocks, yards and yards of tulle.
It's London Fashion Week, so we're celebrating all things Britain. Here, mags like Tatler, Grazia, ES, and others that are peculiarly British guilty pleasures.
