For a while now we've known that Kate Moss will take part in the closing ceremony alongside other big British models like Naomi Campbell and Stella Tennant but even now, it's still unclear what, or who, they will down the runway. The latest issue of Vogue might reveal a clue.
To mark the event and in collaboration with the British Fashion Council, Vogue commissioned Nick Knight to shoot all of the models involved wearing British designers, leading people to speculate that the girls will wear the same brands for the closing event as they wear in the shoot.
In the issue Moss appears wearing a gold encrusted dress by Sarah Burton, as does Campbell, while Stella Tennant appears in Christopher Kane, Lily Cole and Donaldson in Erdem and Vivienne Westwood respectively, Georgia May Jagger in Victoria Beckham and Jourdan Dunn in Jonathan Saunders. I think it's safe to assume that they won't wear the same things but I'm sure the brand choice will be the same.
With the Olympics just around the corner, the details of the closing ceremony have finally been released and as expected, fashion is set to play a prominent role in the festivities.
Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Stella Tennant, Lily Cole and Lily Donaldson will walk the runway as David Bowie performs songs 'Fashion' and 'Rebel Rebel'. Georgia May Jagger will also walk in the show as a replacement for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who dropped out of the show as a part of her efforts to be seen as an actress rather than a model.
With the London Olympics just around the corner, the official opening ceremony isn't the only thing people are talking about. Yesterday reports emerged that some of Britain's biggest models will be involved in the event's closing ceremony on August 12.
All the big names like Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Stella Tennant are expected to appear alongside younger girls like Lily Donaldson and Jourdan Dunn. Each model will allegedly sport the designs of leading British designers like Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood.
Yesterday was a busy night in New York. As well as the Time 100 party, the city also played host to the Chanel Artist Dinner during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival at the Odeon. All of the names you would expect were there like Camilla Belle, Leigh Lezark and models Arizona Muse and Karlie Kloss. Even Julia Restoin-Roitfeld made an appearance showing her ever growing baby bump
New York Fashion Week started with a bang last night as the annual amfAR New York gala event took place to kick off this season's festivities. The gala, which raises money for HIV/AIDS research, always see the best of fashion and entertainment come under one roof and as you would expect, the red carpet outfits were strong. Models were particularly on form last night. Joan Smalls looking incredible in a black Givenchy gown, Anja Rubik sported that much loved black and gold Gucci flapper dress and Liya Kebede broke the penchant for gowns by opting for this season's two tone trousers teamed with a white blouse.
We've been talking about it for the past month and yesterday finally saw Victoria's Secret host their annual catwalk show. Kanye West and Jay-Z were the suprise performers of the night in addition to Maroon 5 and Nicki Minaj who had both already been confirmed.
Guests at the after party ranged from Donna Karan and Carine Roitfeld to Nicky Hilton and Lala Vazquez and Joan Smalls gets my vote for the best dressed Angel on the night.
Whether your attending in person or watching their livestream in the comfort of your home, the Burberry show is a must see and it's not just about the clothes.
If there's any show at London Fashion Week that brings in the big names, it's Burberry and yesterday was no different. The usuals like Mario Testino, Anna Wintour, Sienna Miller, Lily Donaldson and Rachel Zoe were joined by Kanye West, Ellie Goulding, Gemma Arterton and Burberry Body face Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the front row.
Dasha Zhukova's appointment as editor-in-chief of POP was met with raised eyebrows considering her relatively limited amount of industry experience and her short stint at the magazine was not very well received but it looks like the art collector is finally working on a project that's true to her heart and love of art. This week she announced that her new magazine called Garage - which will celebrate all things fashion but in the context of art - will launch this Fall.
Named after the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture (which she opened in Moscow in 2008), the magazine is nothing like anything on the market according to the magazine's art director, Mike Meiré. “It is so very, very different from other magazines,” he explained. And they're going all out for the first issue with multiple covers including one featuring a puppet version of Lily Donaldson created by artist Dinos Chapman and Nick Knight. Zhukova has also secured Damien Hirst to design a cover with a butterfly sticker that peels off to reveal a butterfly tattoo on the model's vagina.
Lily Donaldson has been quiet since moving back to London from New York but is back on the radar again having signed to frontAldo's latest collection.
The British models appears in the brand's new campaign, unveiled this week, wearing some black wedged heels joined by two white bunnies. "The shoot was great, really fun," she said. "It was shot by Terry Richardson, and we spent about two or three days on it. It was as fun and energetic, as Terry's shoots always are, except this time there were bunnies too!" When asked what her favourite piece of the collection is she said: "I like these ones, the ones I'm wearing and also the leopard brogues from the bunny picture. They're cool."
Last week the fash pack all descended on London's Kensal green in their interpretations on English Eccentric-wear to attend the first anniversary of Alice Temperely's Alice by Temperley diffusion line.
The brand definitely had a lot to celebrate. Despite only being in it's first year, the last twelve months has seen them launch their first ever cruise collection which was released last month.
When guests were not enjoying the fantasy photo booth on site, they all took to the dancefloor enjoying music spun by Ellie Goulding and Daisy Lowe or were seen sipping on Chambord cocktails. Guests included Poppy Delevingne, Lily Donaldson,Lara Bohinc and Ben Grimes.
