Lady Gaga may have traded her meat dress in for gowns and Daisy Dukes, but that doesn’t mean her taste for the unusual has left completely. Gaga celebrated the holidays with her Haus of Gaga over the weekend and dressed for the occasion as only she could: as a nymphish elf named “Mistress Claus,” wearing a green lace-up bodysuit and thigh-high striped socks. The singer, who once made headlines for wearing Kermit the Frog as a dress and arriving on the Grammys red carpet in an egg, has opted for...

KochĂ© Showed Its Pre-Fall 18 Collection At NYC’s Most Iconic Bookstore

1513117133184-Untitled-collage

The Parisian house celebrated New York City with a little help from its favorite bookstore.

There are over two million books at The Strand, widely regarded as the best bookshop in New York City, if not the world. The most valuable titles are found on the fourth floor, in the Rare Book Room. Many books up there predate the shop itself, which opened 90 years ago. But it’s not all antiques. The Rare Book Room doubles as The Strand’s signing space. It’s not uncommon to find Patti Smith — a former Strand employee — inscribing box-fresh copies of her newest publication surrounded by sun-faded books by her favorite writer, Rimbaud.

What Are The Most Searched Fashion Terms Of 2017?

1190500

Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.

With the end of the year fast-approaching, the time has come for all of those end-of-year round-ups. Along with the highest-paid models and the most liked brands on Instagram, new research by fashion search platform Lyst has now revealed this year’s most looked up terms. Taking the top spot was ‘power’, although maybe it referred to a lack of it? It could also be referring to the power suits and shoulders that we saw at Vetements, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga. Empowerment is a running theme in the list, with ‘woke’ coming in second place. After finding itself added to the Oxford English Dictionary this summer, activism also cropped up on the runway via Dior’s “We should all be feminists” t-shirts, as well as pro-black sweaters and that viral Frank Ocean tee. While you might think...

Meet The Designers Shaping The Future Of Korean Fashion

K-wave:

‘Fashion is a voice of rebellion in the current political climate – it’s all about the idea of freedom’ — meet the seven designers powering Seoul’s burgeoning fashion scene

Taken from the winter issue of Dazed. You can buy a copy of our latest issue here.  In Seoul, even toddlers out-dress you at the shows. Fashion is a Big Deal here. An integral part of K-culture, it’s fuelled by a generation of kids who devour fashion with a no-boundaries, inherently genderless approach that doesn’t conform to their parents’ ideals, and an emerging scene of designers who fly the flag for self-expression. People use the word ‘freedom’ a lot, and it’s hard to be in the midst of this undiluted ode to individualism and not...

Rihanna Announces & Models New Fenty Beauty Lipstick Shades

mattemoiselle
Rihanna's Fenty Beauty line has been a huge success since launching in September, sparking a shift in the conversation around diversity in the beauty industry (in addition to having some amazing products). By advertising her inclusive forty shades of foundation as a key part of the line's offerings, Rih pushed other major beauty brands to step up their game and create products for tones and shades outside the narrow range usually seen in major marketing campaigns. Her casting of a diverse array of models, both in skin tone and in gender expression, also have made Fenty Beauty an industry leader. (As if Rihanna's company would ever be anything else). Today Rih dropped some more good Fenty news, announcing the upcoming release of 14 new lipstick shades (and modeling one of them,...

Helmut Lang is on a roll with their latest venture, creating timeless basics that spotlight the work of iconic artists for charity. For the third installment of their "Artist Series," the brand has re-appropriated the work of legendary street photographer Keizƍ Kitajima (famous for his candid, high-contrast portraits and as the protĂ©gĂ©e of Japanese post-war photographer, Daido Moryama). Kitajima was famous for his punk, DIY attitude when it came to developing and showcasing his work, refusing to play by art world's rules. He would create a new exhibition every month, papering gallery walls with the photos he took over the past several weeks, wandering the city streets at night. The brand has released three different t-shirts, a poster and a pin for the capsule,...

We'd say that maybe it was the pop star's dopplegÀnger, but Bey was also with her mother, Miss Tina Lawson, and her eldest child Blue Ivy, who was riding in a shopping cart (as children do). Shoppers caught the family browsing the toy and children's bikes aisles,...

Issa Rae Steals The Show At Versace Mansion

980x (17)
There are few sweeter sights than Insecure's Issa Rae assuming center-stage — especially if her platform is an invisible dance floor constructed atop of the Versace mansion's pool. Dreams. Stars flooded what is now known as Villa Casa Casuarina, but was formerly the home of Gianni Versace before his tragic passing, for the 8th Annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale Party. Various rooms showcased the work of the 16 emerging artists selected as finalists for a special exhibit. After a record number of submissions, host Issa Rae announced the victor to be Vancouver's Vanessa Lam — the first ever Canadian winner. At Rae's side were Insecure costars Broderick Hunter and Sarunas Jackson while Olivia Culpo, Eva Longoria and DJ Mark Ronson could be seen mixing...
