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.

Gwen Stefani La Perla

Her new single is out and the cover is classic Stefani, but even more so, classic La Perla (she’s made a good choice).

Pictured: Gwen Stefani wears La Perla’s Signature Talisman Bustier from the Fall/Winter 2014 collection on the cover and to promote her new single “Baby Don’t Lie.”

Jackie O – Oscar de la Renta

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:

Another interesting sighting at the Teen Vogue event was Bailee Madison wearing a skirt by designer Ekaterina Kukhareva. A graduate of the famous Central St. Martin’s school in London, Kukhareva started her named collection in 2009 and has been a prolific dresser to young starlets since that time. Here’s a link to see more.

Wanted to point this out because Endless Rose is a flirty collection that has a bit of a different look. It’s skewed towards the early 20s set and this is reflected by many of the Hollywood actresses wearing the collection. The Endless Rose actress resume reads as follows:
Demi Lovato
Kerris Dorsey
Caroline D’Amore
Teyonah Parris
Bailie Madison…and now
Peyton List.

Not bad for a collection that started in 2012. For more info, visit: EndlessRose.com

Published a new shoot today from photographer Michael D. Becker and knitwear designer Kinjal Mehta. Enjoyed viewing it particularly because he used models that were healthy (non-anorexic looking) and his use of color against a darker background made the images jump off the screen. We’re all about showcasing new photographers and Becker should definitely build an audience with his coming works. View Mehta’s entire collection here.

First discovered Rad Hourani when I spoke with Roxanne Doucet at our French sister site Agence Triptyque. She was high on the Jordanian designer because he had firm roots in Montreal. Since his initial showing at Paris Fashion week he’s taken the fashion world by storm. This is ever more so the case with his Unisex collection now that Lady Gaga is the proud backer of this collection, dare we say it, she’s his muse? If she’s not, she needs to be, she look excellent in this piece from the collection.
