Fresh From The Feed-------
Style.com’s Fashion Feed brings you the best of the news around the Web and on Twitter, and ranks the most-discussed designers, labels, models, and celebrities. In our weekly series, we call out the top five designers of the previous week (with our handy gloss on the hows and whys).
1. Marc Jacobs (pictured; last week: 4)
A big win at the CFDA Awards and a few new Resort collections (for Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, and Marc by Marc) sent Jacobs straight to the top. The gossips were rehashing relationship drama, too, but we’re more interested in the question Jacobs and his stylists raised at LV: Are granny glasses the next big thing?
2. Alexander McQueen (last week: 5)
Did Cadbury (and filmmaker Baillie Walsh) rip McQueen off? Gucci Group, which owns the McQueen label, is considering suing the confectioner after a new Flake bar ad bears more than a passing similarity to the video of Kate Moss that played during the Fall 2006 show.
3. Michael Kors (last week: N/A)
The Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award winner earned the CFDA Awards’ only standing O. Read his charming Q&A with Style.com, and it’s not hard to see why.
4. Alexander Wang (last week: 2)
The enfant terrible has a new trophy (the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design from the CFDA) and, we learned last week, a new place to keep it: his new Tribeca loft.
5. Jason Wu (last week: N/A)
And Wang’s fellow Swarovski Award-winner, Jason Wu—who snagged the emerging womenswear designer prize that A.W. picked up last year—rejoined the ranks with a win (and one of the evening’s best-looking dates, Rachel Weisz).
