Did Jackie O.—arguably the paparazzo get of the sixties—secretly love being photographed by Ron Galella (pictured, left stalking his prey)? The lensman seems to think so—though based on his description of their one conversation (“You’ve been hunting me for three months now”), we’re less sure. [The Moment]
One of fashion’s ultimate boundary crossers is, no surprise, preparing yet another boundary crossing. Hussein Chalayan is mounting an installation and film on the overlap of art and fashion at London’s Lisson gallery. [WWD]
Dior doesn’t do anything so middling as erect a mere scaffolding when it renovates a store. It just builds a giant, camouflaging Lady Dior bag. [Racked]
Your Friday not-so-surprise: Olivia Palermo would like to be a designer. [Styleite]
Fashionista does its best to translate the blog-speak of one Miss Lourdes Leon, Madonna’s daughter and muse of her Material Girl line. Since it’s often difficult to figure out what the hell the girl is talking about, we’re var var (Loures-ism: “very”) grateful, so mercizz (“thanks”). [Fashionista]
There are plenty of reasons to love Jordan Silver, the encyclopedic owner/proprietor of Silver Lining Opticians. One very good one is that he owns and runs Silver Lining, one of the finest spots in town to get impossible-to-find glasses from any and every era. (He supplies Bergdorf Goodman, and Jay-Z himself has been known to buy a few ultra-expensive pairs there.) Another is that he couples that eyewear knowledge with a nearly-as-great knowledge of pop culture. So not only does he have two colors of the granny-fab pair of vintage Dior specs above, he can also offer what may be the mother of all fashion credits: that they’re the style of choice for the, Lucille Bluth, the Medea of Los Angeles, from the dearly departed series Arrested Development (below). If that’s not a good reason to read his blog, I’ve never heard of one. Continue Reading “Vintage Shades, Arrested Development Style” »
I’ve been crazy for gingham lately, and I’m not alone. Take Isaac Mizrahi. As he told us at his Resort presentation, gingham “is like a solid with a lot of personality.” The usual country red and royal blue ginghams have their place, but they don’t feel as fresh to me as the soft, floaty grays (and their near cousins, washed-out blacks and even watery blues) that have been cropping up everywhere, from street-style blogs to runways. There’s something so much more ethereal about the silvery tones, almost neutral; they’ll transition seamlessly from summer sun to the fall wardrobe. I love how Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s Christine Centenera pairs her gray gingham skirt with nude colors, or how the models Tommy Ton captures throw it on over whatever they’re wearing (pictured). Karl showed some lovely gingham looks at Chanel’s big Resort bash in Saint-Tropez, too, and Eva Mendes is a fan—she wore Dior’s version to the premiere of her movie The Other Guys in Cancún.

It’s a near infallible axiom of fashion that if John Galliano sends it out, it’s more likely than not to kick off a trend. So when the Fall ’10 Dior show featured riders on the runway, no surprise, a few months later, to find equestrienne-inspired gear here, there, and everywhere. No horsewoman skills necessary—rest assured, these barn-ready, covetable Celine boots for Fall look just as good on the pavement. And for more of the equine looks we’re in the mood for these days, check out our new roundup.
