We Don’t Look A Day Over 3


We may not look our age, but is celebrating a big anniversary this fashion week: ten years of being the ultimate online home of fashion. To celebrate, we’ve taken a look back at our decade-long history, from the top ten collections to the ten fashion headlines that shook the world, the ten hottest models, the ten It-est accessories, and many more. To see the complete top tens, click here.

We’ve also tapped a few expert friends to give their two cents, too. Tim Blanks weighs in on the top ten menswear collections of the decade. Tavi Gevinson provides her own decade in review—never mind that she was only 4 when it started. The runway mixmasters Frederic Sanchez and Michel Gaubert provide their decade in fashion tracks. And with an eye to the future, Opening Ceremony predicts the ten things we’ll be talking about over the next ten years.

Happy birthday to us—but the present is coming from us to you. Keep your eye on this space for more about our very special tenth anniversary collaboration, coming soon…

Items from Christian Lacroix’s last collection for Jean Patou (Spring 1987) went on the auction block in Paris and raised a total of about $226,000, including more than $1,000 for a “slave bracelet.” [WWD]

Fresh off of Alice, Tim Burton is already planning on remaking another Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty. His top choice for Maleficient, the poisonous witch: Angelina Jolie. Don’t read anything into that. [Racked]

Prada’s latest sunglasses campaign goes live on the label’s Web site tomorrow, featuring beachy images shot by Steven Klein, music by Frederic Sanchez, and Prada girl-of-the-moment Rasa Zukauskaite (pictured in Prada’s shades). If you can’t make it to Biarritz, you can at least make it to, right? [Fashionista]

And Sir Hardy Amies, the British tailor whose name is all but synonymous with bespoke suiting, is making a triumphant return to…bespoke suiting. The homecoming follows his company’s financial collapse in 2008. [Vogue U.K.]
