Every season, Chanel is always a show that I look forward to. It’s not one that we always feature because maybe at that point in time, I don’t find their collections to be all that wearable, but if there is anything that I am more fascinated by than the clothes, it’s the show itself. For his Fall 2014 RTW show, Karl Lagerfeld created a faux super market with branded items like pasta, canned goods, and even home goods. It was apparent that a whole lot of detail went into planning the show and the thing about this is that had it been an ordinary show – the audience members would never even notice these details.
This show was not an ordinary one though. After each model walked out on the runway, they continued to stay and mill about the grocery store as if they were actually shopping. This made me wonder what the true underlying message is I think Fashionista said it perfectly:
[The set] spoke to the clothes in such a big way, in terms of a grocery store being the great equalizer. All types of women — from hip, young things to polished doyennes — inevitably need to pop into one for some reason or another. So you had girls in crop tops and leggings — so many leggings, from pink and shredded to glittery and purple…not to mention black and white tweed — to fancy ladies in classic skirt suits, like the one who walked out in a pink ensemble, accompanied by a personal butler to carry her myriad Chanel shopping bags.
After the show ended, guests and show attendees were invited to take home a complimentary fruit or vegetable, but naturally some people tried to actually loot the other goods. Can we blame them? Wouldn’t you want pasta out of a Chanel box, too?!
This spread was actually released last month, but we never posted it and I actually really enjoyed it so much that I didn’t want to pass it up.
It’s really exciting that Kendall has been walking in several shows for fashion week this season and not just some of the ones that we forget about or don’t care to read up on. She walked IN Paris in both Givenchy and Chanel. Typically, when the Kardashians pursue things ie) Rob’s designer sock line, we don’t take it too seriously, but we’re thrilled that Kendall is actually doing what she wants and succeeding at it. I think she could have a really strong career in this. Cara D. watch your back.
Lupita Nyong’o, in Prada
The red carpet was packed with actors and actresses meant for the best dressed list. We’ve reached the end of the Award Show season (I think) and this was probably the best way to close it out. Lupita has pretty much hit it out of the park for every award show. That alone, should earn her an award.
I was gifted a “Brides” subscription for a year and not once did I ever see a celebrity on the cover! It make sense though. Hayden Panettiere is on her way to the alter and we all know that she’ll make just a stunning bride. I kind of actually find engaged celebrities on the cover to be a little exciting. We love this spread:
It’s the eve before the Oscars and as always, we’re more than a little bit excited about the red carpet. Additionally, Ellen is hosting – need we say more? This handy-dandy infographic was released yesterday by MediaRun outlining every dress worn by a leading actress winner over the last 85 years since the award show has existed with actress names and designers included. It’s quite interesting to notice the patterns and similarities in the gowns ie) how in the earlier days best actress winners were leaning towards the neutral colors and in the most recent times becoming a little bit more daring with their gowns.
