In the wonderful game known as fashion musical chairs, a big move was made (or at least FINALLY officially announced) yesterday. After rumors floating around that Nicolas Ghesquière would be taking over for Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton…LVMH confirmed that the former creative director of Balenciaga will indeed be heading to LV. So what should we make of all this? Let’s find out.
It was a good run, guys. In case you haven’t heard, Marc Jacobs just left Louis Vuitton after being their Creative Director for 16 years. His recent collection that showed just yesterday at Paris Fashion Week was his last. From pajama dressing to fur in some interesting places, and everything in between, we’re throwing back this Thursday to look at Marc’s evolution at Louis Vuitton.
I’m not a huge movie person (considering my favorites of all time are Clueless and Mean Girls) so it’s rare when I’m absolutely dying to see a movie…and that rare occasion occurred when I heard about The Bling Ring. I got to attend an early screening last night and I’ve found myself Googling “Pretty Wild, E!” “Paris Hilton portrait pillows” and “Audrina Patridge address” (which I’m hoping now isn’t all that easy to find).
As much as I loved the movie, I want to discuss the most important part — the fashion.
Tonight was my absolute favorite event of the year [that I don’t attend because it’s $25,000 a ticket and I’m not famous] — the Met Gala. Saying it’s the Oscars is fashion is an understatement. When you’re typically used to seeing strapless sparkly gowns on the red carpet (#boring), this event has anything but. This year was especially exciting with the whole punk theme (which we already discussed last week) so I decided to do my red carpet posts a little differently this time. Be looking out for part 2 coming soon, as well as a “best punk,” “almost punk,” and “not so punk” posts. Getting a little ambitious with 5 posts but I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy writing them. If not, please lie in the comments section.
So I hope you’re ready for some serious red carpet commentary, because here it goes.
Now that fashion month is officially over, it’s time to review the runways and see what we’ll be wearing this coming Fall. I realize it’s barely Spring but this is how fashion works. Just like heeled running shoes, it makes perfect sense.
And because it’s always fun to be ahead of the trends, I found some pieces you can wear this Spring that are still perfectly on trend for Fall ’13. Here it goes…
