Fashion & Style

NY Post

February 2018

At Marc Jacobs’ spring 2005 collection, A-list celebrities seated on metal high school bleachers at Pier 54 put on a show to rival the production that would soon come down the catwalk. Then-power couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony held hands. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — at the height of their NYU-student boho phase — huddled chummily with Mandy Moore, who would also cuddle Natalie Portman in her lap. Kate Hudson rubbed pregnant BFF Liv Tyler’s belly as her dad, Steven, mingled nearby.

The scene last February at Philipp Plein’s show at the New York Public Library was a distinct contrast. It was arguably the season’s most buzzed-about spectacle, but the front row wasn’t exactly spectacular: A garishly dressed Madonna sat coolly next to Kylie Jenner and Tyga, not far from Tiffany Trump and rapper Fat Joe.  Read More >

Anna Wintour feels Isaac Mizrahi deserved to have the show we caught her at yesterday — but that not every designer should take them for granted.

John Galliano: Fall of a Fashion Icon


March 2011

It was the hottest ticket of Paris Fashion Week-for all the wrong reasons. On March 4, some 1,500 guests gathered in the Rodin Museum gardens for the Christian Dior fall show. Just days earlier, the label’s star designer John Galliano had been arrested for making anti-Semitic remarks to two cafe patrons; soon after, a video surfaced of Galliano drunkenly declaring, “I love Hitler.”

Immediately, Oscar winner Natalie Portman-the face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume-condemned the designer, saying, “I am deeply shocked and disgusted.” Galliano, 50, was abruptly fired and is believed to be in rehab at an undisclosed location. Read More >
