President Barack Obama knows how to throw a good party and deliver a good red carpet and the White House Correspondents' Dinner, which took place over the weekend was no different. Along with the usual mix of politicians came fashion folk like Tory Burch and Rachel Zoe, models like Kate Upton and Irina Shayk and major actresses like Kerry Washington and Claire Danes. As you know, Kim Kardashian never misses a photo-op was made an appearance with mother Kris Jenner making Obama joke, 'Why is she famous anyway?' during his speech.
Nicole Kidman has been criticised for her outfit choices recently by the actress was on good form yesterday to attend the screening of 'Snow Flower And The Secret Fan' hosted by The Cinema Society with Ivanka Trunp and Diane Von Furstenberg. Kidman looked chic in this red cocktail Elie Saab dress with peplum detail teamed with red lips and nude open toe sandals.
A few years ago there was controversy about fashion week running over Labor Day and now fashion Jews aren't happy that New York Fashion Week will directly overlap with holiday, Rosh Hashanah. The religious event starts at sunset on September 8th and ends on September 10th - the day Fashion's Night Out begins.
As a result, Israeli designer Yigal Azrouël will only make a quick appearance at his boutique during the Fashion's Night Out festivities and Ivanka Trump (who is married to an Orthodox Jew) has refused to work on during the holiday. "No one would dare ask us to work on Christmas," a Jewish fashionista told The Cut.
A job opportunity at the most well-known and possibly the most difficult publication to get into, Vogue, is as rare as finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Well that is of course if you're a mere mortal without superstar parents. Of course if you're Ivanka Trump, as the daughter of the business and real estate mogul that is Donald Trump, having Anna Wintour calling you up personally to offer you a job is almost a natural birth right.
Ms Trump, who is soon to become Mrs Kushner, yesterday recalled on "Good Morning America" how the job offer came about. "Anna Wintour very graciously inquired as to what I was planning to do after graduation and offered me a position at Vogue, which to any girl, even if you are not particularly interested in fashion [is an amazing opportunity]- as life would have it I ended up starting a jewelry collection and she's been an amazing supporter of me in my future endeavours."
Between her upcoming jewelry line and the release of her new book, The Trump Card, it would seem that Ivanka, with her beauty and business brains, will come out trumps after all. Jealous? Us?
New York's Metropolitan Opera House was teeming with models, celebs and general innovators last night for the Annual American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala. So basically, it was an excuse for people to show off their formal dresses. At the gala: a grade-A showing from Sessilee Lopez, a still-sunglassed Anna Wintour and a jolting use of neon green. We're looking at you, Iman.
