A Collection So Hot, It Started a Fire

-------

Mugler’s Resort lineup was so hot, it literally started a fire. Or at least that was the joke at Milk Studios today, which caught aflame while David Koma was presenting his debut collection for the house. During walk-throughs, alarms sounded, and a security guard approached press and buyers, telling them to, “Leave. Now.” According to sources on-site, the blaze started on the seventh floor, which reportedly houses Lanvin’s Resort ’15 collection, among others. After the initial hustle and bustle and the arrival of a brigade of fire trucks, the fashion set settled down enough to pull out their phones and Instagram the event, even posing for selfies with some very accommodating firemen. It would seem that no one was harmed, and viewings were resumed not a half-hour after the initial evacuation. Hopefully, the clothes on the burning floor were flame-retardant. Milk Studios had no comment on the event.

Fuzzy Fire: Prince Charles to Set His Sweaters Aflame

-------

The Prince Of Wales And The Duchess Of Cornwall Visit Canada - Day 3Prince Charles wants you to buy more wool—and he’s lighting a fire to get that point across. The Daily Mail reports that the royal wool enthusiast will set flame to piles of wool clothing, rugs, and duvets to demonstrate that the material is a natural flame retardant. Apparently, he hopes that this will somehow revive interest in the British wool industry, which is in sharp decline. Charles attests that synthetic materials are not only cheap and harmful to the environment, but they burn quickly and are very dangerous in house fires. Wool, on the other hand, smolders and promptly burns out. The Fire Brigade will be on hand, but they’re apparently not concerned by the stunt. Charles’ sweaters, on the other hand, are unraveling.

Runway to Red Carpet: Gucci Girls and Sparkles Galore

-------

Beyonce and Blake LivelyThis week, it was Gucci, rather than film premieres, that drew the stars out in New York. Creative director Frida Giannini made a rare trip to the Big Apple to host a duo of parties, which were attended by Gucci-clad celebs including Beyoncé, Blake Lively, and Kate Mara.

On Tuesday, Giannini and co. feted Chime for Change, a charity founded by Giannini, Beyoncé, and Salma Hayek Pinault. Blake Lively showed her support in a mod mustard Fall ’14 Gucci frock with a leather-lined keyhole cutout down the front. Not to be outdone, Queen Bey looked flawless in a one-of-a-kind plunging white Gucci jumpsuit. The following evening, Kate Mara joined the fashion crowd in celebrating Gucci’s long-anticipated cosmetics launch. She chose a burgundy A-line number with a leather bodice from the Fall ’14 runway for the affair.

In London on Tuesday, stars turned out for Glamour‘s Women of the Year Awards. After making a splash on the red carpet, Naomi Campbell, Taylor Schilling, and Sarah Hyland snagged trophies. Schilling, who took home the Editor’s Special Award, and Hyland, who earned the Comedy Actress accolade, both opted for shimmery looks. Schilling went for Peter Pilotto’s plunging silver-sequined Fall ’14 dress, while Hyland opted for a sparkling Gucci Resort ’14 shift. Campbell, the TV Personality Award winner, was the most memorable in a red-and-black Alexander McQueen Spring ’14 feathered dress.

California Chrome Jockey Loves Gucci, Shopping Sprees

Victor EspinozaJockeys know how to dress. Or at least California Chrome’s jockey, Victor Espinoza, who will ride the Thoroughbred in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes with the aim of winning the first Triple Crown in thirty-six years, does. The athlete told WWD that he’s partial to custom Gucci and Ferragamo shoes, and if he wins the big bucks, the spoils will go toward a shopping spree on Fifth Avenue or Rodeo Drive. If that’s not motivation to cross the finish line first, we don’t know what is.

Runway to Red Carpet: The Stars Shine Post-Cannes and Miley Covers Up

-------

Elle FanningFor the past two weeks, all eyes have been glued on the red carpets of the Cannes Film Festival, but the post-Cannes fashion has been packed with well-dressed Hollywood elite, too. On Tuesday, A Million Ways to Die in the West costars Amanda Seyfried and Charlize Theron kicked off their press tour across the pond with a photo call in London. The duo posed in a pair of LBDs—Seyfried chose a gold-embroidered Pre-Fall ’14 Alexander McQueen mini, while Theron opted for a Stella McCartney frock with exaggerated sleeves.

On Wednesday, the leading ladies of Maleficent looked to their characters for sartorial inspiration. At the film’s world premiere in Hollywood, leading villainess Angelina Jolie stepped out in a black Atelier Versace ball gown, while Elle Fanning looked every part the princess in a lilac beaded Elie Saab Spring ’14 Haute Couture gown.

In a rare move, Miley Cyrus chose a conservative and—dare we say it—sophisticated ball gown for a performance during the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Her Giambattista Valli Fall ’12 Haute Couture was covered in delicate flowers, another unlikely move for the sassy songstress. If you’re like us and are hoping this is a sign of a new leaf for Miley, don’t count on it—she was back to her scantily clad, tongue-wagging self during a concert the next day.
