Designer Manish Arora talks exclusively to the International Herald Tribune's Suzy Menkes about old-school Indian luxury, overspending at weddings and collaborating with Reebok. Unfortunately, he glossed over my favourite of his collections - the one with M.A.C. - but I'll forgive him for knowing how to carry the eyebrow ring into adulthood.
Yep, Britney's giving us a circus all right. With everything from her mood to her moves to her Dquared costumes on the global front page, the popstress is hitting us (baby) one more time. The Moment talked to Dan Caten, half of the Dsquared duo, about working with the singer.
Naomi and I first were won over by Afshin Feiz's cupcake-grunge collection last season - there was forearm grabbing - and that was before we knew Bryan Adams is his sometimes-photographer. Nerd moment aside, the been-everywhere designer (Thierry Mugler, John Galliano, Christian Lacroix Haute Couture, Nina Ricci) has some serious street cred. We were happy to talk to him about all the normal things, like Tom Ford and Buddha.
When you think about established stylists, I am sure the name Rachel Zoe is the name that springs to mind first, right? However, stylist Arianna Phillips is known in the industry as the stylist of choice for both great costume design and personal styling. Not convinced? Just have a look at Phillips' CV, which reads like a who's who of the fashion and entertainment industries. For the past decade, she's worked as Madonna's stylist, designing and styling her last four concert tours, and counts the likes of Courtney Love and Justin Timberlake as fans.
W magazine recently interviewed the woman herself, discussing everything from why she chose that Victoria Beckham dress in the W editorial to what sunglasses Madonna wears in a lot of her shoots.
Erin Wasson is the epitome of 'IT' girl. If she's not appearing on the cover of Vogue, ELLE or Esquire, Wasson is working as the muse and confidant of Alexander Wang, or styling the pages of ELLE magazine. If that's not enough, the model recently lanched a successful jewelery line and womenswear line with RVCA.
Wasson recently spoke to The Daily Beast about her current ventures
Editors were shocked last week when they attended the Gareth Pugh show, expecting to see well exactly that. Instead, Pugh presented a video of the models in his looks. Explaining the reason he did not do a catwalk show this season Pugh said: "First and foremost was the fact I had just done this big menswear show in Paris four weeks before the women's show. At a time when everyone is worried about money, I didn't want to come over as being overly brash by doing two big shows."
Dazed Digital were lucky enough to have behind-the-scenes access to Pugh when he filmed the presentation.
The Hills hasn't served the girls too badly in the ol' entrepenuership stakes. Lauren's been off making couture dresses for the Emmys and her fashion brand is doing well (much to the disappointment of a lot of fashionista's. I've already said to much). Heidi and Spencer continue to try and take over the world with their uncomfortably posed photo ops, or natural candid shots from the paparrazzi as they would have us believe, and we've all seen Whitney's new MTV series 'The City'.
Audrina is the latest to cash in on her fame from The Hills and looks beautiful doing so. She has become the official spokeswoman for jeans brand Divine Rights of Denim and appears in their current ad campaign. Here she speaks to Denimology:
Betty Jackson feels optimistic - about her whimsical mish-mash of prints, the economy, that sort of thing - but she made sure to insert a bit of darkness into her show this morning. She said in our backstage chat that she wanted to bring out Tim Burton's 'darker surrealism', and with looks like this one on Tanya D, it seems she accomplished the goal.
