In one short year, the cherub-cheeked Prince George has stolen our hearts and the crown for best-dressed royal baby. The trendy toddler, who seems to prefer striped overalls and nautical prints, has already worn more stylish duds in his first year than most do in a lifetime. We’d imagine that the regal tot received at least a few new ensembles on this very special day, but due to his lack of an Instagram account, we can’t be certain. Here’s to a happy birthday, and many more years of sartorial stardom.
The World Cup may be over, but we still have our memories, right? Last Friday, after the final match in Rio, Brazilian actress Luisa Moraes hosted an all-out bash at The Fat Radish’s World Cup pop-up. Have a look at the festivities through her eyes, below.
Last Friday night in Rio de Janeiro, Absolut Elyx and I hosted an evening of delicious food and cocktails at Casa Fat Radish. Over the past month, the team from The Fat Radish in New York and Absolut Elyx had hosted dinners, parties, and screenings of the World Cup matches at the pop-up members-only clubhouse, which was set in a private 19th-century villa. Anyone who was lucky enough to enjoy the pool and view the matches from the screening room knows just how special this place is. Fifty friends (including Gerard Butler, Michael Ballack, Esteban Walther, Vania Catani, and Daniela Tolstoï) who happened to be in town for the last weekend of the World Cup showed up to celebrate. While we dined on a five-course tasting menu created from local ingredients by Casa Fat Radish chefs, Brazilian musicians, The Jesse Monroe Band, played a wonderful acoustic set. After dinner, hundreds of people started showing up for what turned into a dance party beneath Friday night’s full moon.

Good food, good friends, the night was perfect!
Gringo da Parada kept us dancing until 4 a.m.
After dinner, The Fat Radish’s Phil Winser shared some laughs with Gringo behind the decks.
If you’re going to take style advice from a celebrity, it may as well be Diane Kruger. The actress has topped virtually every best-dressed list known to man, and is friends with such designers as Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, and even Karl Lagerfeld. Her unique breed of sartorial panache allows her to flawlessly transport shoulder pads into the 21st century, make crop tops look refined, and even demurely work that see-through-shirt trend. The fashion icon, who lives by the style mantra “less is more,” wore a sweet lace bra under her sheer top, allowing her lingerie to take the spotlight. And while we don’t fear the nipplehere at Style.com, not everyone can work it like Rihanna. As Kruger demonstrates, sometimes a coy teaser is saucier than the full reveal.

Congratulations to Sophie Aschauer and Paul Sevigny, who were married over the weekend in what can fairly be described as a postcard-perfect ceremony in the bride’s picturesque hometown of Gmunden, Austria. The pair exchanged vows in a tiny chapel on an island off the shores of a massive lake, and the scene inside will not have been unfamiliar to anyone who has frequented one of Sevigny’s New York nightspots, such as The Beatrice Inn, Don Hill’s, or his current address, Paul’s Baby Grand. In other words, the place was packed to the rafters and a spirit of unforced bonhomie emanated from the groom and his radiant bride.
After the ceremony, guests including best man André Saraiva; Paul’s sister Chloë; and the dirndl-icious Le-Tan sisters, Olympia and Cleo, enjoyed a toast on the wooden bridge outside, and the sun broke through the clouds above the mountains in the background. (It didn’t come as a surprise to learn that parts of The Sound of Music were filmed nearby.)
Later, festivities continued at a castle hidden deep in the woods at the end of a narrow, unpaved lane. Vast quantities of schnitzel and strudel were consumed, as were vaster quantities of local wine. Attendees, many of whom had stayed out till the wee hours at a welcome party at Aschauer’s parents’ house the night before, roused themselves for another round of dancing. It’s safe to say the hills were alive with…well, you get the idea. Bride and groom were last seen departing for parts unknown in a convertible. We wish them much happiness and joy on their journey.
Since opening in February, New York restaurant Navy has emerged as something of a downtown clubhouse—a hip yet easygoing place for locals who prefer shooting oysters to vodka (most days). The convivial atmosphere is no surprise, given that Navy is the brainchild of Akiva Elstein and Matt Abramcyk, exes of Employees Only and The Beatrice Inn, respectively. And like Elstein and Abramcyk’s other restaurant, Smith & Mills, the design at Navy is lo-fi dazzling. Look up from your parsnip salad to appreciate the indigo-dyed curtains; take a break from mussel toast and scallop crudo to admire the fold-down sink in the loo. And the maritime detail extends, too, to the excellent uniforms at Navy, which they could probably sell to customers from a kiosk behind the raw bar. The ladies’ dresses look like the sartorial offspring of a naughty French schoolgirl and a dapper sailor circa World War II. The uniforms for the guys, meanwhile, are an understated riff on classic shipyard workwear. Elstein reveals that the designer of said uniforms is one Eli Caner, who works under the moniker Lady and Butler. A vet of up-and-coming brands such as Timo Weiland and Jonathan Simkhai, Caner is making something of a name for herself with her chic uniforms for places such as The Monarch Room and the hotel King & Grove. Caner’s work is due for wider industry exposure: According to Elstein, Navy is already busy fielding inquiries for fashion week.
