Inspiring Style: Top 5 Fashion Headlines

Inspiring Style: Fashion Headlines - 2nd Week of March

tisci
♥ Riccardo Tisci is the new face of Dior.

Tisci once worked with Givenchy, but has now taken his talents to the Dior showroom as John Galliano was ousted last week.

This Italian designer might not be the most famous of all the people who could have replaced Galliano, but he does have his own unique ideas about runway shows and the future of Dior.

I think we're all eager to see what he comes up with since all eyes will be watching...


ellery
♥♥ Designer Kym Ellery from Melbourne is one to watch. She isn’t exactly new on the scene, but she was recently nominated for the LMFF Designer Award.

Of course we fashion muses already have a handful of well known designers we are enchanted with, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have room for a few more talented people, especially with designs like the ones seen here. I’m also diggin’ the shoes.
kanyewest
♥♥♥ I distinctly remember having a heated phone conversation with my sister about four years ago regarding Kanye West’s College Dropout album.

Although I thought his songs were great, I really could not get behind his continuous statements (in his music and in general) that no one needs to go to college.

So imagine how taken aback I was to learn that Kanye has applied to get a Master’s degree in fashion at the Central Saint Martins College in London.

Other greats like McQueen, Stella McCartney and even some of my music faves PJ Harvey and MIA have attended the school. It’s too bad Kanye can’t apparently get into any fashion shows.


prabalgurung♥♥♥♥ And who isn’t in love with Prabal Gurung right now? I mean, anyone who can make a collection inspired by Miss Havisham is OK in my book.

Seriously, I’ve read Great Expectations, seen the movie version, and enjoy saying the name “Pip” just because.

According to Gurung, who’s dressed both Oprah and Michelle Obama, every woman should have a sheath dress, consider makeup resolutions like bright colors this spring and steer clear of short, tight dresses.

dovcharney
♥♥♥♥♥ Man, I thought the Galliano story was big last week—but that sort of pales in comparison to Dov Charney of American Apparel.

The AA head exec is in the news again after being accused and sued by a teenage employee for sexual assault. Can’t the fashion just be about the fashion again? She says she was forced to perform favors for Charney and is now suing him for more than $200 million in damages.

AA plans to file a complaint with the New York bar claiming conspiracy and extortion. Finally, all those racy American Apparel ads are now starting to make much more sense. I mean…honestly…

By the way, Chanel Iman is neither the next Tyra Banks nor Naomi Campbell. She’s the next freakin’ Chanel Iman!

Thank you all for your generous comments recently--I love the love!

  3. So I am still sad to see Galliano leave Dior, but he deserved it. I love what Tisci did at Givenchy and I am incredibly curious as to how the aesthetic of Dior will change.

  23. I'm very excited to see the direction Dior will go in with this new guy. I had never heard his name before!

    I'm horrified by the AA chief. What a slimeball. I've heard stories about him before this, but this one pretty much just seals the deal about his being a pervert as far as I'm concerned. Ugh.

    And I agree about Chanel. The media needs to let the poor girl be HERSELF without trying to label her as the next-whatever. Sigh.
