There is a certain incandescent ambiance in the air as the beloved Fashion Week returns. Fashionistas wait impatiently for the first day to arrive so that they can pull their best ensembles out of hiding and hit the streets for some couture fun. Tinges of uncertainty bounce around every fashion magazine as contributors wonder what each designer will bring to the catwalk that year. However, with the recent elimination of the infamous event, "Fashion's Night Out," one has to wonder, will Fashion Week this year be as exciting? It was said back in February that the Vogue-funded occasion would no longer take place due to the revaluation of the event’s actual significance.
Luxurious hanbags in supple Saffiano leathers, embossed textures, and a myriad of rich pigments, prints, and hues were on display as specialty cocktails flowed and flashbulbs sparked. The collection - inspired by British heritage, tradition and style throughout the decades - included versatile satchels, clutches, and totes in traditional shapes and silhouettes.
If the names Willi Ninja, Dorian Corey, Pepper LaBeija, and Venus Xtravaganza sound the slightest bit familiar, then you've likely seen the 1991 documentary Paris Is Burning. Paris Is Burning explores the early underground ballroom community and its importance in the development of the LGBT community. The film's producer, Jennie Livingston, sheds light on the many competitive categories in the underground scene.
Fast forward to the year 2013. Every Tuesday night on West 39th street in Manhattan, you can still get an intimate view of the ballroom scene at club Escuelita. With the beats of DJ Mike Q spinning in the background under the vocals of Legendary Kassandra Ebony and others, Vogue Knights kicks into full effect just shy of midnight. Founder, Jack Mizarhi (given house name) started the event over a year ago. Dashaun Wesley (also known as the Legendary Dashaun Evisu Wesley) has been active in the scene since 1998. "I was interested in finding the Village Area," says the humbled 5'11 athletic built beau. "I saw people doing this dance on Christopher Street called voguing and I just watched and followed." Since then, Wesley has gained international recognition for his involvement in the ballroom community. He is currently one of the emcees and judges for the event.
The buzz has it that the haircut of the moment has arrived. In fact, this new do is already being deemed as the haircut of the year. Fashion bible, Vogue, stated in their January 2013 issue that this season's "sexy and refreshingly easy to wear" look is "The Chop," as beautifully exemplified by model, Karlie Kloss. The look, made possible by hairstylist, Garren Defazio, who Karlie adoringly refers to as "the Godfather of hair," rests just above the shoulders, with slight, feathery layers in the front and is brought together by long, airy bangs.
Judging by the media, the rest of the country may have all but forgotten about Hurricane Sandy , but the devastation left behind by the super storm is still fresh in the memory of most of the tri-state area as those affected begin to pick up the pieces. Just Friday night we learned Obama has formally asked Congress for $60.4 billion dollars in an effort to alleviate the suffering of so many who lost so much. Although helpful and necessary this relief package will barely put a dent in the total bill Sandy wracked up, and more installments are expected as damage continues to be assessed.
Despite being the inspiration behind Meryl Streep’s role of Miranda Priestly in “The Devil Wears Prada,” Anna Wintour was reportedly regarded as a “good sport” about the rather negative portrayal of the bobbed and sun-glassed fashion mogul. Undoubtedly the English-born Editor-in-Chief, a position she has held since 1988, has perfected an ability to persevere through high-pressure situations. Which may be one of many reasons Barack Obama is purportedly considering Wintour for the position of US ambassador to either the UK or France.
The September issue, the most important edition for Vogue, has covergirl Lady Gaga donning a gorgeous Marc Jacobs fishtail gown along with hair that is as wild as ever.
Channeling Ru Paul, Gaga looks her fashionable self, tweeting to fans: “Who else sees me channeling @RuPaul on the COVER of VOGUE. If only I was as fierce as you b*tch. I did try to come for you with that weave,” People Magazine reported.
The issue hits news stands August 21st!
