Beyoncé had Pucci, Dsquared², and David Koma. Rihanna had Givenchy, Raf Simons, and Lanvin. Now, Miley Cyrus—the girl who’s bulldozed her way into the headlines by wearing next-to-nothing nearly all the time—is joining the designer costume club. The provocative pop princess is set to twerk onstage in custom duds from Marc Jacobs, Jeremy Scott, The Blonds, and iconic Cher costume designer Bob Mackie during her forthcoming Bangerz tour. While the wardrobe choices aren’t particularly surprising (Cyrus just fronted Marc Jacobs’ Spring ’14 campaign, and, as you can see from the above Instagram, is a documented Jeremy Scott fan), we’re still anxious to see what kinds of coverings—or lack thereof—this impressive string of designers comes up with.
The fashion biz has had quite a year. 2013 was jam-packed with major designer shake-ups, groundbreaking ad campaigns, celebrity collaborations, and pop-star performance wardrobes filled with custom-made designer duds. In the final days leading up to 2014, we’re counting down Style File’s most popular twenty stories of the past year. So sit back, relax, and relive 2013′s unforgettable moments. Read numbers ten through six, below.
10. Raf Simons Opens His Atelier—and Shares His Label—to Artist Sterling Ruby for the Most Complete Designer/Artist Collaboration Yet
When Raf Simons does something, he does it all the way. Case in point, his Fall ’14 menswear collaboration. For his upcoming collection, which will hit the Paris catwalk on January 15, Simons has handed his atelier over to artist Sterling Ruby. The result will no doubt be the most extreme art-meets-fashion experiment to date. Style.com’s Tim Blanks spoke to Simons about his latest artistic endeavor.
9. At Givenchy, Flower Power, Military Might, and Even a Cameo From Bambi
In May, Style.com got an exclusive first look at Riccardo Tisci’s floral and camo Pre-Spring ’14 menswear collection for Givenchy. Showcased on fuchsia-haired models, the collection marked the debut of Tisci’s controversial Favelas 74 shirt, which was later worn by Marina Abramovic to the CFDA Awards in June. Matthew Schneier gave us a rundown of the dynamic lineup.
8. Inside David Bowie’s “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)”
David Bowie had no shortage of headlines in 2013. In May, the rock star dropped The Next Day, his first album in ten years. His costumes were featured in an exhibition at the V&A, he starred alongside Arizona Muse in a Louis Vuitton campaign, and he was even named the best-dressed Briton in all of history. But his buzziest accomplishment was no doubt the music video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).” With a cast that included Tilda Swinton (a.k.a. David’s doppelgänger), Saskia de Brauw, and Andrej Pejic, the Jerry Stafford-styled film featured clothes from Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Rick Owens, Raf Simons (both for Dior and Jil Sander), and Saint Laurent. Style.com’s Tim Blanks took us inside the making of the music vid and walked us through its lust-worthy wardrobe.
7. “Applause,” Please: Brandon Maxwell Talks Styling Lady Gaga’s Latest Video
Remember that time in 2013 when Lady Gaga announced her new record, Artpop, and from the moment she revealed its Inez & Vinoodh-lensed album cover in July, until she hosted her raucous Art Rave release party in November, she was all anyone could talk about? Well, during the height of the Mother Monster frenzy, right after she debuted her flick for “Applause,” Style.com’s Katharine K. Zarrella spoke with her stylist, Brandon Maxwell, about the characteristically outré vintage and custom looks she donned in the music video.
6. Jeremy Scott: The New Man at Moschino
After celebrating its thirtieth anniversary in Milan, in September, Moschino appointed Jeremy Scott as its creative director.

There won’t be enough sun-filled English days in this lifetime for Tracy Sedino to wear each pair of vintage shades in the Linda Farrow archive. “Oh, my god, I must have thousands,” she said last week at a dinner in New York. Sedino was behind the revival of the Linda Farrow brand, whose namesake designer worked with houses such as Yves Saint Laurent and Emilio Pucci to create glasses in the seventies and eighties. Farrow closed her business to start a family in the late eighties, and her crates of luxurious lenses were stored away in a London warehouse.
Over a decade later, Sedino—then a student at the London College of Fashion—began dating (and has since married) Farrow’s son, Simon Jablon. “His father had some warehouses,” Sedino recalled. “And he asked Simon to get rid of all the stock, because they were getting turned into residential properties. So I went with him, and we found original Pucci and YSL sunglasses piled three-floors high.” Obviously, their discovery couldn’t go to waste, so she and Jablon used it as a jumping-off point and rebooted the house of Linda Farrow. They sold some of the vintage styles but, more notably, began partnering with young talents to turn out glamorous—and often outrageous—designs. (Remember those Jeremy Scott Minnie Mouse shades? That was their doing). Today, the husband-and-wife team continues the company in Farrow’s spirit and makes glasses for everyone from Dries Van Noten, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Suno to Alexander Wang, Peter Pilotto, and The Row. “We thought there was a massive gap in the market,” said Sedino of her and Jablon’s decision to relaunch Linda Farrow. “You have these big luxury houses that sign licensing deals, but other designers, like Dries, will never do that, because they value their brands too much. We wanted to reinforce what Simon’s mother did in the seventies by working with designers to create eyewear as a fashion accessory, rather than a licensed product.”
Sedino and Jablon celebrated their company’s (and their relationship’s) tenth anniversary this year. And to mark the milestone, the duo have not only offered up a ten-year capsule collection but also opened a pop-up shop in collaboration with BOFFO, right here in NYC. The store, which is located at the Chelsea SuperPier, and open through December 24, boasts a bevy of Linda Farrow’s most covetable products. As for that archive of vintage sunnies, Sedino told us that it’s a constant point of reference. “We don’t want our collections to be too vintage, so we take inspiration from the vintage styles, and incorporate new technology and materials,” she said. Here, Sedino talks us through her five favorite pairs of old-school Linda Farrow frames.
1. “These are acetate Linda Farrow glasses from the eighties. They’re my holiday pair. I love them because the idea and design are fun, and they’re quite comfortable on my face. Ironically, it’s hard for me to find sunglasses that fit—for Asians, it’s difficult to find pairs that sit on the nose bridge. I’ve been wearing these for the last two years, and I’m particularly inspired their shape, because they’re almost like a big chunky Wayfarer. You can really wear them whenever.”
2. “These are Yves Saint Laurent glasses from the early seventies. They’re kind of a round Jackie O style. They’re handmade in acetate, with metal arms. This pair is a one-off, so we don’t have stock anymore. They’re one of my favorite styles, because they’re the perfect size. But I don’t really wear them, because I’m afraid of losing them.”
3. “These are Linda Farrow glasses from the eighties, and they were kind of inspired by Lolita. Whenever stylists call in for Lolita-style frames, we send them these. I wear them all the time in the summer.”
4. “These are amazing. This is another YSL pair from the seventies. They’re not one-of-a-kind—we still have a few—but not many. The lenses are polarized, and because of the orange, they’re my autumn glasses.”
5. “This is the most iconic Linda Farrow style. I love how the sides are beveled. We’ve actually launched a fine-jewelry collection of 18-karat-gold-and-diamond sunglasses, and this is one of the styles we used.”
“I am an interiors geek—I have been slightly obsessed with homes since childhood, and that’s why this project just came naturally to me,” said creative director and now author Rob Meyers on the eve of his book launch. The tome in question is Behind Closed Doors, which catalogs images of twenty-five creative people’s homes, with a twist: They were all taken by the creatives themselves.
Olivier Theyskens, Nicola Formichetti, Courtney Love, Marc Quinn, and Gary Card are among those who participated in Meyers’ first book, which was five years in the making. “I worked with all these crazy talented people and I thought, Hey, I wonder what their homes look like,” said Meyers, whose résumé includes stints with Arena Homme+, POP, Wallpaper*, World of Interiors, and Nylon. “I gave them all disposable cameras and asked them to take pictures of their fave bits in their homes,” said the author of his subjects. “And amazingly, they came through. The cameras came back fully loaded.”
Jeremy Scott’s incredible eighties post-Memphis furniture pieces (above, top) and surreal Ronald McDonald collection; Martha Stewart’s bank of fridges, jars of spatulas, and bowls of eggs; and Courtney Love’s assortment of wedding cake figurines (above, bottom), which includes a pic of her own wedding topper with Kurt Cobain, are just a few of the images included in Meyers’ book. But he insists that this is not what you think: “It’s not like these people have been papped or violated in any way. These pictures are not at all intrusive because [the participants] took the pictures of their homes themselves, and showed as much or as little as they wanted. This comes from their hearts.”
Priced at $29.95, Behind Closed Doors will be available from Rizzoli in March 2014.
