Beginning today, a mash-up of pop-culture enthusiasts, movie stars, and old-school Marvel collectors will descend on San Diego for the annual Comic-Con International. While you’re more likely to catch members of the fashion set waiting hours in line for an exclusive sample sale than a sneak preview of the new Captain America film, designers and tastemakers have latched onto cartoonish prints. A case in point is Raf Simons, who featured charming Andy Warhol sketches on his Fall runway for Dior, and scattered vibrant pop-art motifs (and text blocks that read “Artificially flavored” and “This is the new shape”) throughout his namesake menswear line for Spring. Disney-style swallows flitted across a shirt at London’s MAN show, and Bambi himself was stamped on Riccardo Tisci’s collection-opening sweatshirt at Givenchy. But Mickey always wins. Miley Cyrus and street-style maven Carlotta Oddi, among others, have gone Mouseketeer lately.
Even though it doesn’t hit newsstands until Thursday, V magazine’s summer issue has already inspired a ruckus—that’s what happens when you put a scantily clad Miley Cyrus on your cover. However, the issue, which is aptly titled “Drawn to Fashion,” boasts more than saucy Mario Testino-lensed snaps of Hannah Montana. Perhaps appealing to our taste for nostalgia, V has revived the craft of fashion illustration, turning out an edition that almost entirely consists of hand-drawn imagery and graphic art. Take, for instance, its “Face of the Future” spread, which, featuring the work of Spanish-born, London-based artist Ricardo Fumanal, debuts exclusively above. The subjects of his six-page story are some of contemporary fashion’s greatest female designers (Miuccia Prada, Rei Kawakubo, Sarah Burton, and Phoebe Philo among them), and their best looks from Fall 2013. Don’t get us wrong, we love the digital world, but now and again it’s nice to revisit the old school.
This weekend, the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards took place in Madrid, and a few of pop’s bigger stars (and their stylists) worked overtime to get their Spring ’11 dresses ready. Among those representing the U.S. of A. in Spain were Rihanna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and hostess Eva Longoria Parker, who cycled through a variety of costume changes throughout the evening.
The MTV awards are no Oscars, so the stars took the opportunity to have a little fun. Perry showed a little leg in a jokey but undeniably glam Spring ’11 Jeremy Scott ticket-stub dress with electric blue Sergio Rossi heels. Rihanna and Cyrus, on the other hand, both went long: RiRi in a one-shoulder tulle gown from Marchesa Spring ’11, Miley in a tiered, tied-with-a-bow D&G. For her part, Longoria Parker worked Emilio Pucci, Gianfranco Ferré, and Georges Hobeika at various points, but her most indelible look was her mock homage to the host country’s culinary tradition: a giant Serrano ham. Not the lady’s best look, but give her points for being a good sport.
