    Behold! Fashion Notes, Met Gala edition are here! I’m breaking down the best and worst dressed stars from the red carpet. For this year’s Costume Institute exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the late and great Karl Lagerfeld is being paid tribute. Lagerfeld died in February 2019 and I wrote about his legacy at the time. I consider him the most innovative designer of the 20th and 21st centuries as he defied expectations during his tenure at Chanel and did not allow the limits of the fashion crowd’s narrow-mindedness dictate his artistry. He designed a world that lives in...
  • Parents, Put Some Clothes On Your Daughter! When teenage girls dress in booty shorts or extremely revealing tops, they are, as feminist Camille Paglia put it, sending a sexual signal.

    American Thinker ^ | 04/18/2023 | Christopher Skeet
    As the seasons change and the weather warms, American adults are yet again being subjected to the uncomfortable spectacle of teenage girls wearing outfits more befitting a runway show than a school, a store, or any other public setting. Every winter I hope the trend loses steam or reverses, but every spring it returns worse than the previous year. I wish there were a way I could word this in a less tawdry manner, but I can’t, so I’ll just be blunt: Mom and Dad, we can see the bottom of your teenage daughter’s ass. And we shouldn’t be seeing...
  • Mary Quant, fashion designer who styled the Swinging Sixties, dies at 93

    NPR ^ | Neda Ulaby
    Fashion designer Dame Mary Quant has died at her home in Surrey, UK, according to her family. She was 93. Synonymous with the Swinging Sixties in London, she helped make hot pants, miniskirts and Vidal Sassoon bobs essential to the era's look. While still in her 20s, Quant opened an influential shop on Kings Road that evolved into a global fashion brand. The daughter of Welsh schoolteachers in London, Quant was fascinated by fashion at an early age. Even as a child during World War II, she found the drab conventions around children's garments stifling. Quant's parents did not approve...
  • How The 1980s Are Influencing 2023 Style Trends

    Forbes ^ | Jan 22, 2023 | Olivia O'Bryon
    While Y2K and ‘90s fashion have been big in recent years, ‘80s looks are also making a comeback — particularly for 2023. This year already feels bolder than in years past with bright geometric patterns, dance-inspired looks, and more of those oversized blazers (with or without shoulder pads). Thankfully, not everything is back from the ‘80s, but when it comes to bold, playful statement looks, expect to see a lot of ‘80s influence. Given that fashion often rolls through in 20 year cycles, it’s not surprising we’re seeing the ‘80s popping back up. After all, it’s been 40 years, which...
  • Is it racist to like big butts?: The derriere discourse guilt-trips white women

    The human butt has long been the object of all manner of obsessions. We worry over it: its size, its shape, whether or not it has cellulite on it, how it looks in a pair of jeans. But now, a new source of concern emerges: the alarming possibility that one’s butt — or at least, one’s relationship to butts generally — is racist. For this we may thank the existence of Butts: A Backstory, a new book by journalist Heather Radke. To be fair, it surely is not Radke’s intention to inculcate racial anxiety in her reader: Butts feels like...
  • Question for all: Are the AVERAGE women in your town as beautiful and as well-dressed as these average Dublin women?

    YouTube Grinch Video in Dublin ^ | December 29, 2022 | nwrep
    1) This is just some random street in a busy shopping area in December in Dublin, Ireland. 2) These are average, randomly appearing Dublin women and girls. Of the dozens, I only saw 1 overweight woman. Many looked like models. 3) Impeccable sense of style, perfect hair, great skin unembellished by pock-marked drug usage signs, absence of tattoos on face/neck, no trashy clothes. 4) No weird purple haired trannies, no homeless people, no criminals, everyone in a good mood. Why such a contrast with our big cities on the west coast? What went wrong here? What is your experience elsewhere...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is ending her long leadership tenure with an historic flourish, wrapping up two decades at the top of the party with a string of major victories — political, legislative and diplomatic — that are putting a remarkable cap on a landmark era. This week alone, House Democrats have released the tax records of former President Trump following a years-long legal battle. They wrapped up their marathon investigation into last year’s Capitol attack, complete with criminal referrals for Trump. And they’re poised to pass a massive, $1.7 trillion federal spending bill packed full of Democratic priorities, including...

    With its humble beginnings being worn by Croatian mercenaries in the Thirty Years War (1618-1648), its subsequent promotion by French absolutist monarch Louis XIV, and its continual evolution since then, the necktie has become a fairly common “formal” accessory for men.

    Jill went out shopping on the island with Hunter’s wife, Melissa. Normally I don’t comment on clothes but just have to say this is pretty hideous and so age-inappropriate. If she thinks that makes her look younger, it’s just the opposite effect. Jill Biden is no fashion doctor. Her progressive fashion sense left many wondering just what our First Lady was thinking.
  • Are BALACLAVAS set to be summer's hottest trend? Fashion icon Kate Moss declares hats are 'over' as she takes a leaf out of Kanye West's style book

    While they may once have been associated with armed robbers or the Crimean war, it seems the balaclava is now the hottest new trend for summer. In recent months the full face covering has had a revival as the must-have fashion accessory, and even style icon Kate Moss has given the quirky look her seal of approval. The 48-year-old supermodel has revealed that she's 'over' wearing hats and recently splashed out on the wooly headgear, despite the recent surge in temperatures Balaclavas got their name from their use at the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War of 1854, where...

    A real estate agent has revealed how she's amassed a $10,000 vintage clothes collection - because she's obsessed with living like she's in the 1940s. Gwendolyn Erin Patterson, 25, from Dallas, Texas, says she's so fixated with wearing wartime fashion that she now refuses to leave her house unless she's sporting glamorous attire from the Second World War era.

    ‘Kidcore’—a fad that sees adult men conjure their tweenage years with expressive, if juvenile, outfits—has thrived during the pandemic. Why the style is resonating and how to strike a somewhat age-appropriate balance.It had been a youthful year for men’s fashion. Cutesy charm necklaces often encircled the necks of Pete Davidson and Justin Bieber, making those shlumpy style icons—and paparazzi favorites—look like they’d been sprung from summer camp. Last November, Washington Wizard Kyle Kuzma pulled up to the locker room in a pink Raf Simons sweater with gigundo sleeves, calling to mind a kid wearing his big brother’s hand-me-downs. And fashion...

    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner said Wednesday on “The Lead” that cloth masks were “fashion” and do not protect against COVID-19. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “One of the issues I hear a lot from viewers is the CDC doesn’t seem to distinguish — although they acknowledge on their website that there is a difference — they don’t seem to distinguish the real difference between a cloth mask that your Aunt Sadie made you with Eagles logos on it or whatever and an N95 mask. But there is a big difference. The CDC acknowledges it on the website, but when...

    First lady Jill Biden appeared at the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony on Friday, wearing a mask as she joined just a handful of world leaders at the stadium closed to the public over the COVID-19 pandemic. Biden, 70, wore a blue mask to go along with her black-and-white polka dot dress and long pearl necklace as she represented the US in her first solo international trip as first lady. She could be seen standing and clapping in the almost empty stands while the United States team entered the 68,000-seat stadium. For the Opening Ceremony, Biden wore a black and white...

    Victoria’s Secret is getting back into the fashion show business after backlash over its one-size-fits-all definition of sexy killed off the annual extravaganza two years ago. “Our intention is to get back into the fashion show business in a culturally relevant way,” chief executive Martin Waters told investors in a conference call on Monday. “You should anticipate that the fashion show will be part of our business. We will redefine it,” Waters said. Victoria’s Secret canceled the popular catwalk event featuring its famous “Angels” donning massive wings with their skimpy lingerie in 2019, after 24 years. The event was scrapped...

    Jill Biden joined Joe Biden in the South Court Auditorium of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington as he signed a bill to designate the National Pulse Memorial in Orlando. Joe also delivered remarks on LGBTQ+ Pride month, and the liberal media said that should explain Jill’s decision to opt for her Dolce & Gabbana patchwork dress from the Spring 2021 collection. Officially this dress was designed to reflect the colours and ambiences of Sicily with an abundance of patterns, and colours, but for Jill it represented the coming together of all communities which is what the LGBTQ+ stands...

    It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love a good steal — but there are a few pieces that are worth splurging on. For some, it’s an iconic handbag, and for others, it could be a piece of jewelry that they’ve been saving up for. Somehow, for editors and influencers alike, the one thing they’ll always shell out for is a great pair of shoes. “When I invest in my wardrobe, shoes and bags are always my go-to,” says Kelsey Stiegman, a senior style editor at Seventeen. “I try to go for pieces that are either incredibly unique or timeless...
