Marina’s Must-Haves: VICTORIA Victoria Beckham’s Party Dress

-------

Victoria BeckhamI can’t believe Pre-Fall collections are already hitting stores. There are so many things I still want from the Spring collections. Thankfully, markdowns are starting for the season, so I’ll be browsing around this weekend. I try to hold myself back and purchase only items that I can wear now, and this VICTORIA Victoria Beckham dress fits the bill perfectly. It has the updated silhouette that we’ll be seeing all over for Fall, but it’s sleeveless, so I can wear it to a couple of fancy parties I have this summer. The midnight navy is subtle, but the sequin panel skirt makes it pop.

Let’s Spend the Night Together: A Brief History of Celebrity Weddings Pre-Kimye

-------

Audrey HepburnJudging by the tabloid fuss over Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding weekend, you would think this is the first time two famous people have gotten hitched. But when the pair celebrate their nuptials in Florence—the original Kingdom of Dopeness—on Saturday night, they will be following in the footsteps of a wide range of celebrity couples before them. For instance, there was Sean Penn and Madonna’s 1985 oceanside Malibu wedding—attended by the likes of Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Cher—during which the groom scrawled FUCK OFF in the sand to deter airborne paparazzi. Going back further, there was Audrey Hepburn’s deeply elegant 1954 wedding to Mel Ferrer, for which she wore a custom Balmain tea-length gown. And who could forget David Beckham and Posh Spice’s nineties extravaganza, during which the latter donned a mini crown?Here, a look back at what happens when celebrities exchange vows.

Jobs Wanted: The Business of Fashion launches its new recruitment site in London

-------

BofLondon’s top designers turned out for a dinner party to launch The Business of Fashion’s new recruitment site, BoF Careers, at Mayfair’s Morton’s Club last night. The concept of a fashion- and luxury-only recruitment site came to founder Imran Amed not long after he launched BoF back in 2007. As the site started to grow, so did Amed’s connections.

“People would approach me after shows, dinners, presentations, and ask questions like, ‘I am looking for a PR manager who speaks Mandarin, I am looking for a social media marketer—do you know someone?’ This happened enough times for me to think, Hey, there needs to be an online recruitment site for fashion and luxury only.” Industry heavyweights agreed: LVMH, Tory Burch, the Net-a-Porter Group, Swarovski, Ermenegildo Zegna, Lane Crawford, and Anya Hindmarch, who together employ almost 150,000 people worldwide, are BoF’s launch partners. The CFDA and BFC also became involved. “Starting right now, our seven partners will post their vacancies online, so those looking for employment in fashion worldwide will be able to start their search immediately.”

The evening was also a release party for the second issue of BoF magazine with cover star Victoria Beckham, who also, btw, is seeking a digital marketing intern exclusively on the site—résumés at the ready!

The Right to Bare Arms: Designers Make a Case for Long Vests

-------

VestsVests. Who needs them? On men, they can look old-fashioned and stuffy. On hipster girls, who tend to wear them with vintage T-shirts and fedoras, they’ve always struck us as a studied affectation. But this season, designers have us rethinking our stance. Newly relevant with tweaked proportions, fall’s elongated vests are more like sleeveless coats to wear layered over sweaters when it’s cold, and then bare-armed long into spring. Dior’s Raf Simons showed a vibrant, ultraviolet style that energized the Dior runway, and we also spotted long vests at Céline, Givenchy, and Victoria Beckham, where they functioned as unexpected, casual alternatives to standard tuxedo jackets and blazers. One thing’s for sure: We won’t be skimping on our chaturanga push-ups in yoga class.

Here, a slideshow of our favorite vests of the season.

Jennifer Connelly  in Louis VuittonBusy week on the red-carpet circuit, ladies and gentleman. Stars stepped out for a bevy of events during the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas, and, in case you hadn’t noticed, the casts of Noah and Divergent have been on whirlwind press tours. Naturally, no one missed a sartorial beat. On Monday, Emma Watson attended a press conference for Noah in Beverly Hills in a multicolored dress from Peter Pilotto’s Fall ’14 offering, while her costar Jennifer Connelly chose a Louis Vuitton Fall ’14 dress modified with long sleeves to combat New York’s chilly temps for the film’s premiere on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Divergent‘s leading lady, Shailene Woodley, walked the red carpet at her film’s Mexico City premiere on Tuesday in a bright Spring ’14 Roksanda Ilincic gown accented with an asymmetrical black strap.

At CinemaCon, A-listers including Angelina Jolie and Mila Kunis flaunted fresh Spring looks. On Thursday, Cameron Diaz stepped out in a gray Victoria Beckham minidress with a pleated white peekaboo hem from the Spring ’14 catwalk for 20th Century Fox’s presentation. The same day, a glowing Drew Barrymore showed off her baby bump in a floor-grazing leaf-print Marc Jacobs gown from the Spring ’14 runway for the Big Screen Achievement Awards, where she was honored with the Female Star of the Year award.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.
