Fashion Week Mexico City Starts On a High Note With Kris Goyri’s El Ángel Show

01-lede-Kris-Goyri
At a roundabout on Paseo de la Reforma, one of Mexico City’s main thoroughfares, stands a gilded angel erected in 1910 as a monument commemorating the centennial of Mexico’s War of Independence. It is famously recognizable and singularly beautiful; El Ángel, as it is commonly called, can be seen in various reinterpretations throughout the metropolis—from taxi cab doors to government advertising. Yesterday, as part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Mexico City, one of the city’s most promising young creatives, Kris Goyri, showed his Fall 2017 collection around El Ángel. A dozen-deep crowd gathered around its northern curve to watch Goyri’s models cautiously step down the site’s stone stairs, decked out in ‘70s-era glamwear, rich in hue and artfully accessorized with excellent artisanal...

Amber Heard Isn’t The Only Celebrity Using Beauty To Confirm A Relationship

image
There are two types of celebrity couples in this world: those who flaunt their relationship so aggressively, you'd think they were filming a pilot for the re-make of Newlyweds, and those who consider double-tapping an S.O.'s photo a blatant form of PDA. And while we fully respect the latter's personal space, sometimes it's nice to get a little confirmation of the "are they or aren't they?" question. Pics or it didn't happen, right? Which is why we all emoji-clapped when Selena Gomez confirmed her relationship with The Weeknd via a photo of them wearing matching shades. Ditto to Jennifer Lopez, who posted an entangled sneaker shot with A. Rod. But it was Amber Heard's sly relationship announcement yesterday that we appreciated...

It’s All About The Baker Boy Hat

landscape-1493034016-hbz-the-list-newsboy-00-index

Whether you refer to it as the newsboy, baker boy, cabbie, or page boy—there's no denying this topper is taking over. It girls and supermodels alike have adopted this staple of the early 20th century 'working class' and news boys, and turned it into the ultimate cool-girl must have on or off the red carpet.

1 The Icons

Leave it to the French, like Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, to make anything chic, even a hat was once traditionally worn by men.

2 The It Brits

The hat became synonymous with glamorous supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss in the '90s keeping an air of incognito.

See Pharrell’s New Chanel Gabrielle Bag Campaign

1493042517-screen-shot-2017-04-24-at-95924-am

Pharrell made big news in March when he was announced as the first man to model a Chanel bag in a campaign. Back in December, he walked the runway for the brand's Métiers d'Art show in Paris. Now, he's the star of a campaign film featuring the new Chanel Gabrielle bag.
In a short film released today, the musician approaches an empty concert hall and turns it into his playground. During one especially tense moment, he walks a very unsafe-looking beam hanging in mid-air and almost–ALMOST–drops his Chanel bag.

Terrifying.

How To Find Love—And Maby a New Life—In Italy

landscape-1492535671-hbz-italy2-00-index
As the saying goes, "if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere." But what happens when you're bored of the city that has it all? After a decade in the Big Apple, personal stylist and journalist, Natalie Decleve, knew it was time to move on—the question was, to where…? Embarking on a search to find her next home, Decleve set out on a cross country road trip that forced her to compare her own hectic life with a much simpler one; and traversed the Caribbean for lusher pastures. Here, she gives Italy a go, before finally getting a taste of life in California with a tour along the west coast. Check back here each week...

Laura Kim & Fernando Garcia Of Oscar De La Renta Know What Modern Brides Want

landscape-1493057918-hbz-odlr-bridal-00-index4
Inheriting the heritage, history and signature style of a brand as well known on the American (and worldwide) fashion stage as Oscar de la Renta requires equal parts humility and confidence; and it appears that after launching their own line, Monse, together after a brief departure from the ODLR atelier, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have those traits in spades. The two recognize the pressures of designing in the shadow of one of fashion's greats, but it doesn't seem to hinder their process. In fact, it seems that working with Oscar for years prior to his passing and with a different customer via Monse has given them a clear understanding of what women want. "Girls want different things than they...

Gigi Hadid Painted, Partied, And Went On a Helicopter Ride For Her 22nd Birthday

landscape-1493041183-gigi

For her 21st birthday last year, Gigi Hadid had a party with family, went to the beach in Malibu with her boyfriend, Zayn Malik, and sister, Bella Hadid, and then ended the weekend at Coachella—which she, Taylor Swift, and Calvin Harris flew to via private plane.
For her 22nd birthday yesterday, Gigi painted, went on a sunset helicopter ride, wore a pink wig at her party, and got many, many giant bouquets of flowers in New York. (None as big as the massive one Cody Simpson sent two years ago, but hey.)
