elephantman

Vogue’s December issue has a great feature with Bradley Cooper on the Elephant Man Broadway production. Annie Leibovitz shot the feature and it is indeed beautiful with all of her signature touches (usage of contrasting color , depth and the richness of palette). In the feature, Cooper details his conversion from actor to man with such a strong disfigurement, of the original Elephant Man film he states in the feature, “I was entranced by the film making and the performances and just crushed by the plight of this guy”.

The feature is in Vogue’s December 2014 issue on news stands now.

Margot Robbie looked downright comfortably fashionable in this skirt and top set from Ellery’s 2015 collection. The Australian native who played Naomi Lapaglia in The Wolf of Wall Street looks like an Ellery fan as this is not the first time she’s worn something from the fashion house.

If you don’t have the Ovation network, and you can get it, I highly recommend this channel as it has great programming specific to the arts, fashion et al. More specifically, you get to see Anna Wintour’s approach in working with young budding designers on this show. The season premiere happened yesterday and had a more insider and technical feel than Project Runway. That show had some detractors that specifically targeted the over-the-top reality show feel (a by-product of direction and production). This show features less of that so it may appeal to a bit of a different audience. Season 2 started yesterday November 5th and runs all the way to the final. Vogue this month has a feature on the talent appearing on the show. See it here.

Collina Strada has a beautiful, edgy collection for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2015 season. The collection consists of luxurious lambskin, silk organza, and Crepe de Chine all in neutral colors. The designer has made strides with her first showing during NYFW and is one to watch both on the runways and in the stores.

The oversized coat is beautiful and should any of the readers out there know the designer, let us know and we’ll publish the name. The sunglasses though are unmistakeable Sunday Somewhere. The Australian accessories house is a mainstay for Hollywood starlets and Olivia Wilde is no exception. Here’s she’s seen on the streets of NYC donning the shades.

My remembrance of Oscar de la Renta will always be of Jackie Kennedy Onassis in this beautiful piece. He will be missed.

You can’t deny that “Orange is the New Black” star Laverne Cox wears Monique Lhuillier well. She’s seen here at the premiere of her documentary “The T Word” on Transgender men and women. The dress is part of Lhuillier’s collection and is a plum lace evening gown with sheer yoke, sleeves and grosgrain details from ML.

This is my best attempt at a preview, but having seen designer’s Tatjana Schuck and Benita Shun’s IIKONEE Spring Summer 2015 lookbook, I can honestly say they’ve created a beautiful collection. We’ll be featuring the full looks towards the end of the week with our usual commentary, but here’s the start:
