2017-02-23 18:18More pseudo-news—sartorial and otherwise—unfolds as the Royals continue their Australian tour. Today, Kate Middleton joined the ranks of social butterflies-cum-music mavens like Chelsea Leyland, Hannah Bronfman, Harley Viera-Newton, and Mia Moretti after being taught how to DJ at an Australian youth center.
Naturally, this all happened while she was donning a baby pink McQueen suit. Maybe The Misshapes will ring the Palace if they're looking to turn their trendy trio into a titled quartet. Then again, maybe they won't.
2017-02-23 01:03LN-CC is more than an impossibly cool Dalston concept store offering everything from Lanvin and Rick Owens to vintage books and records—it's a creative family. Most of the people who have worked with the shop since it opened in 2010 are still on board—a fact that's clearly visible in the boutique's Spring '14 campaign, which debuts exclusively here. Lensed by Rory van Millingen in Italy's Carrara marble quarries, the shoot stars Gigi Leon, who poses in LN-CC's Spring merch. "It's kind of the LN-CC philosophy," explained John Skelton, the store's founder and creative director. "Some of the buyers and stylists have been working with us since they were teenagers. Rory was just starting out when he first shot for us, and now he's becoming a bit of a name in London. And Gigi is our house model. We found her working at a Marc Jacobs store and thought she looked amazing. But she's so busy now, she even walked in Louis Vuitton!" he said proudly. There's also a new member joining the LN-CC clan this season: model Max E. "This is literally his first job," said Skelton. "He's from Dusseldorf, and he looks unbelievable. I really think he's going to be the next big face."
When asked why he chose to shoot at the quarry, Skelton told us that he loved the sci-fi, futuristic effect the backdrop offered. However, getting there was no easy task. "I don't know how high up we were, but it was above the clouds. It was quite difficult getting all the product and makeup up there. But it was worth it." We'd have to agree. Featuring wares from Paco Rabanne, Rick Owens, Yang Li, Acne, Lanvin, and more, the shoot perfectly embodies the mix-and-match LN-CC look.
LN-CC's Spring buys are available now on its web site, as the store is currently closed for renovations—the first step in a change-in-gears for LN-CC. After having fallen on hard times this past winter, the store has recently signed a deal with Italian company The Level Group, with the aim of amping up efficiency and profits. "It's a good marriage. They've come in to increase the productivity of the business side, and we get to keep going with the creative side. " As for the London-based outpost's renovations, we've been told that kitted-out fitting rooms, more floor space, and—yes—new bathrooms are all part of the updated space, which will open in September. "It's been a major development for us. It's all up from here."
2017-02-23 19:26Everyone's go-to shop for graphic sweatshirts, quirky snapbacks, and killer accessories is getting a major financial boost. WWD reports that Berkshire Partners has recently taken a minority stake in Opening Ceremony.
The Boston-based equity firm plans to enhance e-commerce, further develop ready-to-wear, add more locations, and introduce new stores to exclusively sell the Opening Ceremony label. "Since starting Opening Ceremony, Humberto [Leon] and I have worked together to create a company with a strong point of view that offers our customers a fresh shopping experience in our stores, collections, and website," designer Carol Lim said.
"Our growth over the years has been organic, but also strategic, and the relationship with Berkshire provides Opening Ceremony with broad resources to grow to the next level."
2017-02-23 20:35Broadway is no stranger to men in drag (think Kinky Boots, Cabaret, and, soon, Casa Valentina). But it has certainly never seen anything quite like the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The transgressive, transformative, transgender title character first stomped onto the underground scene in the late 1990s, the surly brainchild of John Cameron Mitchell. Creating not only the singing, dancing, wisecracking East German ingenue, Mitchell played her in off-Broadway productions and in the cult-hit film of 2001. It was on the big screen that, along with her angry inch (so named, as she comically hisses in one song, for the proverbial chop she hastily underwent in an effort to flee East Berlin), the stubby star was born.
Ever plucky and resourceful, Hedwig has now made it to Broadway, with Mitchell trading in his wig for a producer's hat. Neil Patrick Harris dons the diva's duds, reimagined by costume designer Arianne Phillips, who originally crafted them for the film version. In addition to Hedwig's blond feathered mullet, the ultimate sight gag, her clothes—cobbled together from whatever she can salvage from her hardscrabble, socialist surroundings—are as unique, sympathetic, and fearless as she. Hedwig's wardrobe goes a long way in telling her story, in all its gritty and triumphant reality, as Phillips explains backstage at the Belasco Theatre.
2017-02-23 20:54Despite the fact that it snowed in New York this week, the red carpet was full of summer vibes. Winter coats returned on the East Coast, and in Hollywood, short hemlines and light colors flourished for a bevy of parties, premieres, and award shows.
On Tuesday, Chloë Grace Moretz attended the opening night celebration of The Library in New York in an ecru lace frock with a black yolk from the Carven Pre-Fall '14 lineup. The same night, another one of our favorite A-list teens, Kiernan Shipka, stepped out in a white, yellow, and gray patterned Preen dress for Jimmy Choo's Choo.08 launch party in L.A.
With the premiere tour for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 officially underway, Emma Stone spent a lot of time on the red carpet this week. She stuck to a similar color palette for her Berlin appearances on Tuesday, choosing a light blue Erdem Fall '14 frock dotted with red beading for the photo call and a Chanel Pre-Fall '14 dress with a pale lavender skirt and red-striped bodice for the premiere that evening.
In case you were missing all that awards season glamour, Sunday's MTV Movie Awards brought it back with a summery twist. Ellie Goulding walked the red carpet in a white Emporio Armani dress with cutouts on the sides, while Lupita Nyong'o opted for a gray Chanel Fall '14 dress speckled with colorful geometrics. Rihanna strayed from the red-carpet norm, turning up in a beige corseted bodysuit and a pink silk robe from Ulyana Sergeenko's Spring '14 Haute Couture that took the leg-baring trend to a new level. Your move, Angelina.
