We’re usually so distracted by Dakota Fanning’s stellar sartorial selections on the red carpet that we forget to check out her makeup—until now. The actress has been lining her eyes with gold recently, 1st at a Tribeca Film Festival party and once again final night, at the DKMS Linked Against Leukemia Gala at Cipriani Wall Street. Fanning, a new face at the annual fundraiser (regulars contain committee members Vera Wang, Anja Rubik, and Solange Knowles), heard about the trigger by way of Coty, manufacturer of her Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! fragrance and corporate charity partner of DKMS, the world’s largest bone marrow registry.
“Oh, no, I had somebody else do my makeup tonight,” said Fanning, smiling modestly, when we complimented her shimmering eye shadow. She ultimately admitted to crafting her exquisite golden eyelids from the week ahead of. “Sometimes I’ll do my own makeup for events,” she stated. “I actually like gold eye shadow—my preferred is this discontinued M.A.C shade, but I also like Topshop’s eye shadow crayon.”
Sitting near Fanning, a couple tables more than, was the event’s honoree, Heidi Klum. Following a moving moment, when a mother met the bone marrow donor who saved her adorable 6-year-old boy’s life (there wasn’t a dry eye in the property!), Klum humbly accepted her award. “What we witnessed on stage right now was really particular. You see these items on television and hear about them but to see it in real life, it truly adjustments you—it changed me, I know,” mentioned Klum, who treated Katelyn D’Entremont, the heroic bone marrow donor, to a fun-filled day in Los Angeles. “I will in no way forget Katey—you can speak about [being a donor] but to in fact do it takes a very unique person.
It is not furniture per se, but since we’re in the summer time (yeah, child!), lounge furniture and outdoor furniture qualify as generic furniture. (doesn’t it?). Effectively, lengthy story short: beneath some fancy schmancy Marni furnishings pieces. Chairs, chaise longue, bench, all colorful and summer – complete.
And odd! I fear the price of these so – called fashionable house décor pieces can often exceed not just our wildest imagination by putting a tag way out of our reach. Creating the Marni furniture perfect for display purposes only – I’m particular that the boho rich folks who’d buy it, would also make excellent use of it (say once / season, when they’re in their museum – like vacation property?) (more images appropriate right after the jump! click right here for the gallery!)
I believe that each woman, or every single man in this case, must have at least a single pair of non-standard, edgy jeans in her or his closet. It is always most exciting to watch people’s reaction when you show up some spot wearing a thing so entirely diverse from your usual “you”! It is like if I would show up in a dress and high heels in a single of the bars I go to and where individuals know me, it would be like a total showstopper!! (note: I never put on dresses)
So, now that we’ve decided to do some shock therapy, how about wearing some of those great R13 Jeans. Like the leather jeans shown above with the white tuxedo stripes. Or, if you are a guy, you could go for these slouchy straight cut jeans beneath (yeah, these are unisex, R13 told me). Just mix these with some unbelievable accessories and you will be the queen/king of the night!
Baz Luhrman To Direct Film for Met Exhibit Starring Muiccia Prada and Judy Davis as Elsa Schiaparelli
There’s an exciting new multi-media twist to the Met’s upcoming “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” exhibit.
In addition to the exhibit itself and a book (which Katie Grand appears to be involved in), there will be an accompanying film in which Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada have their “impossible conversation,” made into a achievable 1 thanks to famed director Baz Luhrmann (also a “creative consultant” on the exhbition general) and acclaimed actress Judy Davis, who will play Schiaparelli. Miuccia Prada will play herself.
In a detailed piece about the exhibition in the latest concern of Vogue, Hamish Bowles offers a sample of Schiaparelli and Prada’s dialogue:
The bra was only invented relatively recently – most likely by Parisian lingerie maker Herminie Cadolle in 1889. Her “le bien-être” (the wellbeing) was comprised of a corset for the waist and an upper component which utilized shoulder straps to help the “girls”. Five years following she 1st exhibited it at the Fantastic Exposition of 1900, the leading half was becoming sold separately as the “soutien gorge”, literally “help for the throat” “gorge” also meant breast in old French and the name stuck.
In 1926, Marks & Spencer began selling their bra to aid flappers stay as flat as feasible below those boxy frocks. As the style silhouette changed along with fabrications, bra-sizing became much more standardized and mainstream in the 1930s, ad slogans promised to uplift & “excellent” a girl’s figure. By 1941, M&S even aid shade the Clothes Civilian Act which imposed regulations on the wartime manufacture and restricted the use of fabrics.
This year, it’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee (marking a reign thus far of 60 years), so M&S is celebrating with a new collection of naughty nothings launching in Might 2012: 4 looks produced from silk, lace, satin & mesh which pay homage to the glamorous bullet-breasted sweater-girl of the 1950s. They also launched a pop-up lingerie museum online, covering the decades from the 20s via the 80s featuring fairly pix and entertaining factoids
Adding one more string to her bow is Olivia Palermo, who is the face of Rochas’ new fragrance, Les Cascades de Rochas. Accessible from Might, the scent is a combination of old and new according to Bill Brace, vice president of Procter & Gamble Prestige.
“On a single hand, it’s entirely new. On the other hand, it actually connects back to the core heritage of the brand,” he told WWD.
Inspired by a Parisian fountain in summer, the various elements of the fragrance incorporate Sichuan pepper, pineapple, mango, white flowers, bergamot, musk, and Eclat d’Agrumes (burst of citrus, in English). Mixing the warmth of the pepper with the mandarin assists to preserve the scent fresh to appeal to a younger consumer.
Yesterday, WWD announced that Betsey Johnson LLC had filed Chapter 11 and intended to lay off at least 350 staff as a residual effect. What was not made public is that her entire design team had already received their pink slips yesterday afternoon with CEO, Jon Friedman, formally resigning at a company-wide meeting inside the brand’s showroom, sending the team off “Irish wake style” with a flurry of cupcakes and champagne, reports a (now unemployed) member of Johnson’s runway design team, who wished to remain anonymous.
“As of two weeks ago we weren’t allowed to invest any money—we couldn’t buy trims, fabric, send out samples to be produced domestically or abroad. Factories weren’t sending us what we had ordered since they were worried about not becoming paid,” the supply explained. The layoffs actually started six weeks ago, when approximately fifteen freelancers and complete-time employees were let go. “Betsey was there and although everyone was trying to stay positive as investors had been nevertheless coming by means of, she stated. ‘I’m going to be actually upset when people who recognize me on the street start asking—Bestsey, what occurred, what went incorrect?’”
According to the source, at least three rounds of prospective investors had come by means of the offices in the past two months, leaving employees with an added sense of job security. ”We kept becoming told that factors would turn around, and the discussions with the investors seemed to final a extended time—they had been truly receptive to the ready-to-wear sector of the brand, but when it got down to licenses, every thing seemed to fall apart. They weren’t agreeing with Steve Madden’s vision for the brand, which was to take it down-market place at a lower price tag point than what’s sold in Macy’s now.”
