ast night saw (the filming of) the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show–the show itself doesn’t air until December, but that’s roughly how long it’ll take to make sense of what happened.
Ahead, see deeply silly outfits on supermodels like Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Jourdann Dunn and many, many more. More
The seventh annual Golden Heart Awards took place last night–the gala is a fundraiser hosted by God’s Love We Deliver, which brings nutritious meals to people who are incapable of shopping or preparing food for themselves. The woman of honor at last night’s ceremony just so happened to be Hillary Rodham Clinton and the guest list was a staggering mix of A-list models–Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Iman–and regular old A-Listers–Anna Wintour, Michael Kors, Hillary Swank… Also, the looks were pretty great!
Here’s what they wore. More
Remember, yesterday, when we were really happy about how good everyone looked at the Vanity Fair party for the TriBeCa Film Festival? How all the attendees looked so cool and understated and elegant? That was great!
Unfortunately, today’s Red Carpet Rundown brings you the exact goddamn opposite. Last’s night Hot Pink Party, thrown by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, was a sad state of pinks (predictably), sequins, satin and general promness. More
I imagine it sure would be nice for people to think my face was worth $3.3 million. I should really use more moisturizer. More
Last week, FHM Philippines pulled their racist March cover starring a light-skinned woman flanked by dark-skinned women accompanied by the headline, “Stepping out of the shadows.” Not that we expect much of FHM, we still thought to ourselves, “How is this kind of shit still happening?” and then we couldn’t help but be reminded of a certain Interview spread starring Daria Werbowy.
…And then we remembered a more recent Donna Karan campaign, purporting to be by Haiti/for Haiti but starring light-skinned supermodel Adriana Lima and a few impoverished Haitian teenagers literally in the shadows…. which then reminded us of Michael Kors‘ rich-white-people-romanticizing-Africa collection–terribly named “Afriluxe”–and its corresponding campaign, which then reminded us… you get the idea. The question is, when will this stop happening? Surely we all agree this stuff is flat-out racist? …Right? More
You know what sounds like a good idea for a striking, funny, provocative fashion editorial? Imagine a beautiful model… wearing outlandish couture, flowing caftans, immaculately tailored sheath dresses… while buying groceries in a supermarket. Yes, a regular old, garden-variety supermarket. The most mundane of environs. Wouldn’t that be camp? And tongue-in-cheek? In fact, the whole idea of juxtaposing couture opulence with menial tasks is just so rich!
And that’s what we should have thought last week, when we saw this Jean-François Campos-lensed cover shoot for Vogue Latin America starring Constance Jablonksi. But we didn’t. More
I just want to say that the canapes at the Estee Lauder presentation Ashley and I attended were fantastic. Really, superb. These lovely little sashimi things on rice cakes. Just great! And champagne, too! And such a fun space. They had this elevator that was like an entire room, and it was super cool! It was like being on the Tower of Terror without the terror! Yes. There’s a lot to be said for that event.
But now that I’ve said all there it to be said for it, let’s talk about the rampant hypocrisy of the beauty industry. More
