‘Coming Soon To a Woman Near You’
The Most Newsworthy in Fashion and Trends
Continuing Cannes – Cannes Film Festival is quickly becoming the festival of motion pictures that, like the San Diego Comic Con, has become as much about the celebrities as the work. Whatever you make of it, the stars have been rolling out in their best day, formal and evening wear in order to impress us before we even know what their film’s about (or why they’re there at all). See a favourite look of mine below and Google ‘Cannes 2014’ to see more.
Little Armani – after her spine-chilling turn in 2012’s Beasts of the Southern Wild, Quvenzhané Wallis has just been announced as the new face of Armani Junior. She says ‘I’m so happy to be chosen by Mr. Armani to be his ambassador for Armani Junior. I felt the same excitement when I got cast for a major film. Me? Wow! I was honored to wear his custom gown to the Oscars. It made me feel like a princess.’
The Campaigns of Dreams – you know how most people love puppies and good looking guys? Well, Stuart Weitzman has put the two highly lethal combinations together in his new advert for his clothing and shoe line. The face of the brand, Zoe Saldana, is placed front and center amongst the poolside houses, gorgeous people and animals. Quite fittingly, the advert is titled: ‘Feels so Good’.
Egypt Rising – Forget about Blue Ivy, the Jolie-Pitt brood and Brooklyn Beckham; the son of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz (aka Kasseem Dean), Egypt, made his catwalk debut at the age of just three this week. Ralph Lauren managed to snap up the little one to model his autumn/winter ’14 collection, which hit the runway at the New York Public Library.
Altuzarra for Target – Hot off its recent sell-out designer collaborations – ahem, Peter Pilotto – Target has just unveiled young designer Jason Altuzarra as the next hand to create a limited edition collection for the store. We expect it to arrive on September 14th, 2014 (a date for your diaries, girls), and is described as being a mix of iconic Altuzarra silhouettes with designs created exclusively for Target. The 50-piece collection ranges in price from $17.99 to $89.99 for apparel and lingerie, and $29.99 to $79.99 for shoes and accessories. No news yet on when it will hit this side of the pond.
