The highly anticpated wedding of Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky finally took place this weekend. After weeks of speculation Clinton walked down the isle in this strapless Vera Wang gown while Hilary Clinton opted for a Oscar de la Renta ensemble.
We were left slightly confused when it was announced in May that Erin Fetherston had been appointed creative consultant to Juicy Couture. Sources at the time put the decision down to them trying to rebrand themselves and create a fresh buzz amongst retailers. All that side, the question on everyone's minds was how Fetherston's ultra feminine style would work alongside the velour tracksuit aesthetic of the Juicy Couture that has become synonymous for WAGs and chavs.
Last week, these teaser images of the 11-piece collection were released showing the champagne velour floor-length dress that the Fetherston wore to this year's Met Ball. Unfortunately I wasn't convinced of using velour on a floor length gown then and have failed to be convinced now. However, a black bat wing dress was a lot more appealing and definitely singalled a step in a good direction for the brand.
Talking exclusively to WWD, Fetherston said she was inspired by the 70s and more specifically Bianca Jagger and Studio 54. Although the reference wasn't clear in the released images, I'm sure it will become more so when the whole collection is finally unveiled.
Victoria Beckham always leaves me pleasantly surprised. From her eyewear line to her much loved collection of dresses, she never fails to disappoint. The latest case in point is the launch of new denim styles for her Victoria Beckham Denim line.
Already available on net-a-porter.com, this season sees the designer being a lot more experimental. According to Grazia, soon we'll all be able to get our hands on new styles coming in beaten metal to 'black, waxed denim with zip-up hems' and 'ultra-fine Napa leather leggings'.
Unlike Bee Shaffer and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Margherita Missoni seems quite happy to follow in her mother's fashionable steps, as the young heiress recently went from brand ambassador for Missoni, to accessories designer. Despite her first handbag collection only making its debut back in May, talk of Margherita taking over the Missoni empire has been fuelled by mother Angela admitting considering stepping down.
"I was on a bus yesterday and I thought for the first time there are so many things I want to do with my life and whenever Margherita feels ready I'd let her take over," Angela Missoni, creative director for the label revealed. "Who knows what the future will bring? Maybe Theresa will run things or perhaps my nephew or my son. Margherita has this incredible passion for the business and for fashion though - she would be excellent."
So, it looks like Margherita may see herself as creative director in a few years, although even if the heiress decides against the idea, one thing's for sure - Missoni seem intent on keeping it firmly within the family.
As we reported on Thursday, staff at W magazine have confirmed that filming has been taking place within their offices for a documentary on the making of the September issue - which is to be the publication's redesign debut under the direction of Stefano Tonchi. Unlike Vogue's The September Issue, however, the magazine has revealed that the documentary won't hit theatres, and will be for internet use only.
The film will "live online as part of our online film festival, among other curated fashion-based films," a spokeswoman for the magazine revealed, adding that the festival will begin in October on the publication's website. So while we're a little disappointed that another September Issue style film won't be hitting our big screens any time soon, we're excited to see what fashion films sit alongside the documentary. Bravo, W.
