Here’s How Designers Predicted This Summer’s Biggest Trends

Photo Left: Photo Right: Getty Images
This was the summer of throwback clothing. Trends of yesteryear, like dangerously low-slung jeans and tiny tube tops, were everywhere. While it’s easy enough to clock the recent resurgence of ’90s fashion phenomena on the streets, we spotted most of these looks on the Spring 2017 runways way in September of last year. Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen at The Rowseem to have inspired the aforementioned bumsters and bandeaux. Fanny packs, which were seen on the runways at Stella McCartney and Off-White, went from being associated with schleppy tourists to the It bags of the moment. Yeezy gave new meaning to spandex and inspired many to experiment with bike shorts and bodysuits, while Simon Porte Jacquemus made waves with his boldly big sun hat and French holiday–inspired...

The CFDA And ACLU Team Up On a New Initiative To Fight Hatred

For the second season in a row the New York fashion industry is coming together to stand up for what’s right. Today, the Council of Fashion Designers of America has announced that it will be launching an initiative during fashion week to support the ACLU. Titled “Fashion for ACLU,” the CFDA is hoping it will encourage its members to speak out against racism, bigotry, and hatred. “We want to be on the front line, not the sidelines, to boldly fight to protect our precious rights and freedoms, which has taken on a renewed urgency after the heart-wrenching events of Charlottesville,” Steven Kolb, President and CEO of the CFDA, said in a statement. “Our goal is to actively support concrete work that...

New York Fashion Week Attendees to Wear Blue Ribbons for ACLU

Like most other things in the wake of the 2016 election, accessories have gotten more political and this fall at New York Fashion Week you can expect to see even more of that. When designers show their collections for Spring 2018 next month, many of the attendees will be sporting blue ribbons in unison to raise awareness for the A.C.L.U.. The initiative, dubbed "Fashion for A.C.L.U.," is being organized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America in hopes to take a stance against racism and bigotry, which have become increasingly visible throughout Donald Trump's presidency. "We want to be on the front line, not the sidelines, to boldly fight to protect our precious rights and freedoms, which has taken on a renewed...

Paris Hilton Got Her Hair Braided, So She Must Be at Burning Man: The Best Instagrams to Emerge So Far

The annual Burning Man festival, which sees the construction of a small tent-opolis in Nevada's Black Rock Desert each year, got underway Sunday, bringing out devotees of the bacchanal—self-described "Burners"—clad in the usual Barbie-meets-Mad Max fantasy looks. (After all, the festival even offers a custom tailoring table for any inevitable wardrobe malfunctions.) For the uninitiated, the festival, which was founded in 1986, has garnered a reputation as a hedonistic spectacle for prominent Hollywood and Silicon Valley figures, a weeklong spirit quest of sorts during which participants make "theme camps" in the temporary Black Rock City. (This year's themes include such heady titles as ")*(Aloha = H'Aloha," "404: Village Not Found," and ""#Octothorpe.") It has earned so much cult appeal that its attendees...

You Can Visit The Real-Life King’s Landing, But Locals Don’t Want You To


Now that there’s probably more than a year until the next (and final) season of Game of Thrones comes out, you have time to check out some of the real-life locations for yourself. But if you want to visit the real-life King’s Landing, be wary, because every other Game of Thrones fan has had the same idea. Insane overcrowding has led the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, to crack down on the number of tourists who can visit the area Cersei Lannister calls home.

According to the Telegraph, Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković is set to cap the number of people who can visit each day at just 4,000, which is half of UNESCO's recommendation. That’s because the pedestrian-only medieval section gets overcrowded with visitors.

A scene...

There are few people in this world who can do as much justice to a little black dress as Victoria Beckham. But the former Spice Girl has traded in her signature for a new look that is much more cozy than clubby. Over the past few months, Beckham has been spotted wandering the streets of New York City in pajamas—and only she could make them look posh. Granted, her PJs are more runway than just rolled out of bed. Beckham has been seen in two similar looks consisting of an oversized plaid button-down and matching flowing trousers. She's accessorized both the daytime sleepwear looks with oversized black sunglasses, and in a sneak peak of her Spring 2018 collection, Beckham also wears the...

Kristen Stewart Dances To Beyoncé In Chanel’s New Perfume Ad


Back in May, Chanel announced that four-year brand ambassador Kristen Stewartwould be the face of the fashion house's latest fragrance, Gabrielle.
Today, the promotional film for Gabrielle launched, and in the minute-long clip overseen by commercial director Ringan Ledwidge, Stewart dances to a Beyoncé track.
Stewart breaks out of a gauzy canister—a cocoon, the brand explained in a statement—and then runs, trails of gauze rippling behind her, full-steam into a wall of Chanel Gabrielle perfume bottles. All the while, Beyoncé's somewhat under-appreciated 2009 ballad "Runnin'" plays.

If you're looking for more of a narrative, well good, that was the point. "We deliberately took the opposite line from storytelling," Thomas du Pré de Saint-Maur, Chanel's head of global creative resources said in a statement. "Instead...
