  • On Friday, Vogue Hommes International editor Francesco Cominelli was found dead in his Paris apartment. No more details have been released, and I really don’t know how to write news pieces like this. I am inexpressively saddened that we have lost a wonderful, talented man. He was one of the most intelligent, innovative and inspiring figures in men’s fashion. Rest in peace.

  • Though she lost her spot as judge on the US version of The X Factor, Cheryl Cole is reported to be negotiating a deal with Channel 4 in hopes to host a fashion-based TV programme that will have “a bit more depth to it than just a frivolous fashion show.”

  • While most models dream of working even one show during the International Fashion Weeks, there is one 19-year-old model out there who lived out every model’s dream for Spring/Summer 2012.

    In her ninth season, teenager Karlie Kloss – who is also a brilliant commercial model – walked a total of 34 shows (THIRTY FOUR!), including big guns like Jean Paul Gaultier, Lanvin, Jason Wu, Michael Kors, and Elie Saab.

  • Nina Dobrev
    The 2011 Emmy Awards had one of the most peculiar red carpets I have seen in a long time. With an abundance of way-too-heavy makeup and way-too-bland dresses, a lot of the fashion was forgettable. So who did it right? These ladies!

    Right at the start, we saw Nina Dobrev turn up in a stunning red Donna Karan Resort 2012 gown. Super glossy hair and a choker-style, silver Neil Lane necklace were all she needed to complete her look.

    Fall 2011 Couture Givenchy

    In reflection, the Fall 2011 Couture collections weren’t up to standard. While I adored Elie Saab – as always – the rest of the shows seemed to be missing the usual magic that couture fashion delivers.

    A Top 10, however, will always show the best of the rest.

    Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture
    I’m in lust, again. For his Fall 2011 Couture show, Elie Saab may have left his popular Miss Havisham inspiration back in January’s showings, but everything was still exquisitely Elie. Icy blue-toned greys, aquamarines, mauves and golds were heavily embellished and intelligently crafted – a flawless collection that ended in a platinum white wedding dress for The Princess Pack. Give me beads, give me tulle, give me everything. No complaints. View Post

    Billboard Music Awards Taylor Swift
    As soon as Cannes wraps, we have yet another (entirely different) ‘red carpet‘ to break down: last night’s 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Six ladies really stood out for me.

    First, Taylor Swift in a luminous, embellished nude Elie Saab gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Practically perfect in every way.
