I was initially against the idea of the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” seeing it as a kind of slacktivism. But apparently many of those who take the challenge, in which you have to throw a bucket of ice water over your head or give $100 to benefit A.L.S. research, end up donating either way. Over $13M has been donated to ALS research since this fad started. Never one to ignore a trend, Anna Wintour has just taken the challenge and captured it on video. See the video here – or see her in her normal dignified work state, as at the Paris couture shows, above.
Well, this was definitely my favorite shot of the day. Ralph Lauren exited his 2015 resort show impeccably dressed in his own label. It’s hard to deny his star power. Even Condé Nast editors are starstruck by him, especially when his son David charmingly introduces him by saying, “Meet my dad.”
More burgundy and blue: Caroline Issa wore a burgundy and cobalt blue windowpane check suit to the Bottega Veneta show – it’s an unusual color combination that works beautifully. Also love the buckle shoes.
It was so cold on the day that Solange Knowles wore this outfit that I couldn’t bear to run the photo until now. But now it is the perfect look for spring: a pink cotton suit mixed with with a colorblock coat.
These two are one of the most glamorous couples in fashion, and it’s always a thrill to see them walking into a show together. Veronika Heilbrunner of Germany’s Harper’s Bazaar wore a lavender Christopher Kane paisley cut out dress to the Stella McCartney show yesterday, and Justin O’Shea wore his trademark three-piece suit. Also note the sneakers with the dress – very Chanel!
Miroslava Duma wore more crisp white to the Missoni show in Milan, pairing a pinstriped white suit with an Hermes bag and bustier-style top. A great look to keep in mind for spring. Also love the cut of the trousers: wide legged and cropped – and very flattering.
Anna Dello Russo wore an elegant full skirted tweed suit to the Bottega Veneta show on Saturday. Love the feminine silhouette of this look.
The ever-dapper Justin O’Shea of MyTheresa strode into the Marc by Marc Jacobs show in a gray plaid coat, gray three-piece suit, paisley tie and pink shirt. The whole look nodded to current trends (plaid, pink and paisley) but stayed within the parameters of O’Shea’s distinct personal style.
Inside the show, also attended by LVMH’s Delphine Arnaud, there were several big changes: the line is now designed by Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley, appointed this fall, and the new label name will be MBMJ.
Gender-bending fashion is in the news, with Jared Leto’s man bun and Diane Keaton’s tuxedo turning heads at the Golden Globes. For women, donning menswear isn’t just for black tie or Pitti Uomo: it looks sharp on a variety of occasions, as on stylist Tina Leung at the Carven show in Paris. The suit is Ralph Lauren, the stilettos Valentino.
A little menswear for you: Vogue columnist Hamish Bowles’s choice of a plaid suit in summer 2013 seems prescient now that plaid is everywhere on the streets for men and women. Also love how his socks match his shirt.
Colorblocking has gone black and white for fall, with designers like Viktor & Rolf issuing dresses, pants and jackets in bold black and white sections. Tina Leung wore a suit by the designers on the day of their couture show in Paris.
La Reppublica editor Simone Marchetti was one of the best dressed men at Paris couture, attending the Chanel show in a robin’s egg blue suit and polka dot cravat. Perfect for summer, sophisticated enough for some serious business.
Again a pantsuit steals the show, this time outside of Ulyana Sergeenko Couture. Crystal costume jewelry necklaces are a fun way to dress up an outfit, especially for a masculin-feminin look.
