Emma Watson Feathers Elle

  • So, it’s definitely more feathers than fashion, but I am loving Emma Watson on the cover of Elle UK‘S November issue. The sherbet-coloured cover is unconvential, abnormally cropped and was shot by Rankin. A cover after my own heart! What do you think?

  • Next collaboration with Target? It’s Jason Wu!

    Yesterday, @TargetStyle tweeted: “Who is the next #TargetDesigner? Get your sleuthing gear on, we’re about to share some clues.”

    Then, “#TargetDesigner Clue 1: the new @TargetStyle designer began sketching the future of fashion at 5 years old.” (Any Wu fan would know he designed and sewed doll clothes as a child!)
    Then, the second clue: “#TargetDesigner Clue 2: A beautiful visual… could it be from the next collection? tgt.bz/6016RVb8″

    No more clues needed! Placing all my bets on Jason Wu.

  • Remember when America’s Next Top Model castoff Fatima Siad walked the Dries van Noten runway? (Come on, it was only two days ago…) Well, the gorgeous Somalian just joined the likes of Arizona Muse and Kasia Struss as a model for Hermes‘ Spring/Summer 2012 collection, as well! WERK.

  • The French government is honouring Glenda Bailey, the fanastic editor from Harper’s Bazaar, with a prestigious award given to artists who strive to strengthen the arts in France, the Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
  • Dries van Noten SS12
    Last year, Dries Van Noten came across a young English photographer named James Reeve while he was president of the jury at the fashion festival in Hyères. A year later, his Spring/Summer 2012 has been decorated with the photographer’s night-scape prints after they collaborated with each other in Antwerp. Because the photos weren’t meant for attire purposes, Dries combined the prints with haute couture silhouettes from the 1950s. In turn, every pixel came alive.

    While prints have found their way into almost all Spring/Summer 2012 shows, the result of this collaboration was incomparable. In one look, Dries even decorated one skirt with actual stones to mirror the lights in Reeve’s photo of a building in Marseille. It is so wonderful to see aesthetic passion lit up in van Noten’s academic flair. Ready-to-wear, with all the delicacies of couture.

    (Also: Look at Americas Next Top Model cast off, Fatima Siad, working the runway above! The 24-year-old is the first castoff to land veritable high-fashion runway work!) View Post
