On a giant platform outside the Parisian museum today, models showcased the 1960s-inspired looks of the Christian Dior Spring-Summer 2015 haute couture collection. The designer chose to play with contrasting volumes, namely in long, loose and transparent trench coats worn over embroidered mini-dresses. Flared skirts also made a strong showing, echoing the French fashion house’s signature design codes. Colorful stripe motifs are a recurring theme in the collection, along with other groovy geometric prints seen in jumpsuits, bodysuits and dresses.

Haute couture fashion week: Schiaparelli – Yahoo News

Created in the absence of the Italian designer’s leadership, the Spring-Summer 2015 collection is a collaborative effort from the entire Schiaparelli design team. While Versace chose to play up feminine curves in sensual, close-fitting gowns, Schiaparelli presented only a couple of tight dresses. Instead, the focus in this collection is on ample tailoring and fluid fabrics, with a particular emphasis on wide-legged pants. The waists are typically worn high, sometimes even just above the chest. The fashion house’s signature design codes are well represented, steampunk fashion as seen in the wide and prominent shoulders in a number of looks.

Salma Hayek leads Saint Laurent menswear finale – Yahoo News

SLIMANE FINALLY VINDICATED? The fashion press is a tough bunch. Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane has been criticized, chewed up and thrown out a hundred times. The Franco-Tunisian designer courted controversy first in 2012 amid accusations he threw out the precious YSL heritage in his debut collection for the revered Parisian house by going punk and dropping “Yves” from the house name. Yet the styles that fashion critics, including this one, lambasted him for glam rock, grungy, punk, teddy boy, and uber-skinny styles are now ubiquitous on the catwalk. As they are on the street. The house is apparently financially buoyant.

Eventually, said Apu Gupta, owner of technology firm Curalate, we will be shopping directly from Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. Golden goods: A renewed interest in gold jewelry, accessories, and trim on clothing is ushering a return to Old World opulence. Look for the gilded metal to continue brightening earlobes and high-top sneakers. For jewelers, too, its more fun setting a precious stone in gold than in silver. Marsala (and all things wine-colored) : Earlier this month, the Pantone Color Institute named marsala the 2015 color of the year. Not only urban fashion should our pillows and walls skew this shade of muddy scarlet, so should our lipsticks and evening gowns. Look for a very claret-hued Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

Fashion Icon Beverly Johnson Says Bill Cosby Drugged Her – Abc News

13 Dec

“The things I look out for when looking at clothes are so crazily specific now that it really was a very natural thing to start conceptualizing my own line.” Neelys influences for the line run the gamut, from Japanese fashion magazines to “scruffy French actresses,” she says, as well as her own native Southern California. “L.A. gets such a bad rap for basically not even caring about fashion but that’s completely not my perspective. I love the laid back feeling, the emphasis on dressing down just makes it moreimportant to really have that perfect t-shirt or pajama-ish short.I’ve lived in a fewdifferent parts of California and they’ve really all had a part in influencing my normal.” Personal favorites from the line include the Kaede shorts ($280), the Zillah slipdress ($300) just cause it’s hot, and the Ceven tank (“It’s the easiest thing to just throw on and I love the low-cut sides,” the blogger notes of the $90 piece). Prior to launching Are You Am I, Neely has already cut her fashion teeth in collaborations with lines including The Reformation and Dannijo, and in modeling campaigns for Free People, RVCA and Forever 21. Made in downtown Los Angeles, the brand which Neely has slowly revealed on her Instagram will be sold at The Grove in Los Angeles as part of a holiday pop-up in collaboration with Revolve Clothing, just in time for the holidays.

By Merle Ginsberg 5 hours ago Content preferences Done It was a rumor that swept Europe this summer, but now Page Six is reporting that Gucci’s top couple, CEO Patrizio di Marco and creative director Frida Giannini, who have a daughter together ,will exit their posts imminently.

Kering shakes up Gucci management to boost brand – Yahoo News

Kering said in October that sales trends at the 93-year-old Florentine brand showed signs of turning the corner in the third quarter, particularly in major markets such as western Europe and China, despite remaining negative. Every major luxury goods maker has been hit by the worst spending slump in five years as concerns about economic growth and conflicts in the Middle East and Ukraine hampered demand from the Chinese, Russians and Europeans. Big brands have also been suffering cynthia vincent shoes from consumers’ growing appetite for smaller, less widely distributed labels. Based on sales performance, some such as Louis Vuitton and Hermes appear to have done a better job than Gucci at rebuilding or supporting their exclusive image. Analysts and investors say Gucci got rid of too many accessible items and on average, raised prices too much. They also mention lack of innovation, which affects brand desirability and ultimately investor sentiment and growth prospects.

Anticipation high for Territorial Cup game – Yahoo Sports

In 2012, the Sun Devils scored 24 points in the fourth quarter to rally for a 41-34 win in Tucson. Arizona State topped that last season, routing Arizona 58-21 in Tempe. With 19 seniors playing their final home game, the Wildcats really want this one. ”You know that for your fans, particularly in state, that the rivalry game is going to mean a lot to them, but I promise it doesn’t mean any more to them than it does to the players and coaches,” Rodriguez said. A few more things to look for when the Sun Devils and Wildcats meet: CLOSE GAMES: Outside of last year’s rout, the Duel in the Desert has been filled with close games in recent years. Seven of the past 10 have been decided by a touchdown or less, including 2010, in which Arizona State blocked an extra point at the end of regulation and again in the second overtime to win 30-29. HAIL MARYS: Arizona and Arizona State will enter their rivalry game with a similar-but-rare play under their belts: the Hail Mary.

Wacky Celeb Fashion: Rita Ora Vs. Miley Cyrus

Please use a supported version for the best MSN experience. Wacky celeb fashion: Rita Ora vs. Miley Cyrus By By Gena Oppenheim of Wonderwall | We’re almost always amused by Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus’ wacky and often similar wardrobe choices. Take their sparkling black-and-white jumpers. Rita wore an Emilio Pucci one with an intricate design and low-cut sheer neckline for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
