Legacy of Style: Fashionable Mother-Daughter Duos, Just in Time for Mother’s Day

-------

Mother's Day“You’re just like your mother.” Many women meet such a comparison with dread, but for those lucky enough to have ultra-stylish mums, it’s a compliment of the highest order. Who wouldn’t want to learn the art of getting dressed from an icon like Kate Moss, Jane Birkin, or Jerry Hall? Having good taste is a birthright for their respective daughters Lila Grace, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon, and Georgia May Jagger, so it comes as no surprise that many of these girls have become fashion darlings in their own right. In honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday, we rounded up twenty of our favorite mother-daughter pairs. From the quintessentially French Roitfelds to the pinup-worthy Dellal clan to the edgy power duo that is Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz, there’s plenty of multigenerational inspiration here.

Tim Blanks Remembers Mugler’s Epic “Le Cirque” Show

-------

Mugler

Each fashion season promises a few truly memorable moments (step teams, carousels, and grocery stores come to mind), but some might argue that Thierry Mugler’s 20th anniversary “Le Cirque” show has yet to be beat. Some of Mugler’s favorite girls, including Claudia Schiffer, Jerry Hall, and Naomi Campbell, celebrated his signature “campy extravagance” in what was likely a very expensive, undeniably fabulous spectacle. They smoked cigarettes, struck poses on a multilevel runway, and danced to James Brown’s live rendition of “This Is a Man’s World” with buff boys in thongs. Need we say more? Watch Tim Blanks revisit the show in our latest Throwback Thursdays video, here.

Fendi’s Power Women Take on the Peekaboo

-------

Fendi Peekaboo

If you had any doubts that Fendi was one of the coolest brands on the block, they should be laid to rest. The house behind some of the most whimsical, luxuriously irreverent takes on fur around (coats dripping 24-karat gold and fur-embellished buggie bag charms, anyone?) is now collaborating with one very formidable group of power women on a series of DIY-styled, ultra-customized bags. The Peekaboo project—launching with an online auction this Thursday beginning at 6 p.m. GMT and the opening of a new London Fendi store on Friday—enlists the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Tracey Emin, Cara Delevingne, Adele, Jerry Hall, Georgia May Jagger, Zaha Hadid, and more to add their takes to the house’s Peekaboo purse, with the guiding design of Silvia Venturini Fendi.

“The Peekaboo has always been associated with strong iconic women since its creation,” Venturini Fendi told Style.com of the bag, which was introduced for Spring ’09. “We loved the idea to involve women, each of them an icon in her own field of competence. Iconic women working on an iconic bag.” Each of the custom bags—which range from a simple white crocodile version by Paltrow to actress Naomie Harris’ leather satchel imprinted with a butterfly-covered map of Africa (a “message of love and freedom,” said Venturini Fendi)—will be auctioned off to benefit Kids Company, a charity providing support to more than 36,000 inner-city kids in London and Bristol. “We wanted to do something special and unique on the occasion of Fendi’s new boutique opening in New Bond Street,” explained Venturini Fendi. “On one side, we wanted to give back to the British community, and on the other, to celebrate the iconic Peekaboo bag, a bag that since its creation in 2008 was conceived for a total customization, and even more so now with the new MTO service available in the New Bond Street boutique.”

“The main reason I was attracted to the project was because it was raising money for Kids Company, which I think is a fantastic charity,” related Adele, who created a rather cheeky take on this season’s Bag Bug Peekaboo. “The fact that I got to design a handbag was just an added bonus—I got quite carried away and could easily enjoy designing handbags forever.”

Architect Zaha Hadid saw the project as lending wings to her broader creative practice. “Designing these smaller pieces is of great importance to us, as they inspire our creativity, giving us an opportunity to express our ideas on a different scale and through a different media, while helping to raise awareness and funding for a wonderful cause that supports so many children in the U.K.,” she said.

“I really hope this joining forces between women—Fendi itself is also a company created by women for women, from my grandmother to my mother and aunts, now me and also my daughter—will bring amazing results and proceeds for the online auction to benefit Kids Company,” concluded Venturini Fendi. “We left [our collaborators] to express their own creativity without limits, and thanks to our amazing artisans, we were able to make their dreams become reality. Because at Fendi our motto is ‘Nothing is impossible.’”

Giancarlo Giammetti Thought Jerry Hall Was A Call Girl

-------

Giancarlo GiammettiWhen Giancarlo Giammetti first met Jerry Hall, the supermodel told him that she was a cowgirl. However, to Giancarlo’s ear, her Texan twang made it sound like she said “call girl.” “I was really shocked…So I very shyly ask whether she arranged to meet her clients by phone or in person. She say, ‘What clients?’ I say, ‘You say you are a call girl.’ And she say, ‘No, no, no! I am a cowgirl!’ We became great friends.” Giammetti—the ultra-tan Italian force who’s served as Valentino Garavani’s business partner for 45 years—discusses this, his relationship with Valentino (occupational and otherwise), the influence of stylists, and more in the latest installment of Vanity Fair‘s “Out to Lunch” series. Apparently, Giammetti dined with journalist John Heilpern via Skype. Naturally, the former was stuck on Valentino’s yacht on the Aegean sea, and couldn’t make it for an IRL meal.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

-------

Fact: Kids tend to be embarrassed by their parents. However, when your mother is a supermodel, it changes things a bit. Or, at least, that seems to be the case with Georgia May Jagger and Jerry Hall, who hosted a tea party at the Sunglass Hut’s Fifth Avenue flagship yesterday in celebration of their new Mother’s Day-themed campaign. “She’s my style hero,” said Jagger of her glamazon mom. “My sister has great style too—all the women in my family do, actually.” It’s no surprise, then, that the leggy blonde twosome mirrored each other—with Hall sporting a leopard-print dress and Jagger in leopard-print platforms. As for raiding her daughter’s closet? “I certainly do for sunglasses,” Hall admitted. In fact, a sunnies-fueled spat unfolded before our very eyes. When Hall couldn’t find her favorite black cat-eye shades, she realized that her daughter had been holding them. “Those ones are mine!” Hall said, smiling. “Oh, we’re just fighting over sunglasses.”
