Looking Towards the Future

Vogue Italia will be featuring an all-black issue in response to the lack of color in fashion magazines and on the runway. Models set to appear in the issue include: Jourdan Dunn and Liya Kebede so far.

So even if it's going to cost you that ungodly fourteen bucks for the international issue (which will be appearing in July) get it. It's going to make history

It's Coming...

The Metropolitan Musuem of Art's Costume Gala is coming May 5th! This year the theme is "superheroes".

"Today, superhero imagery has suffused almost every aspect of popular culture," said Andrew Bolton, Curator in the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute. "The superhero's iconic costume of cape, mask, and bodysuit finds many fashionable permutations. But fashion's embrace of the superhero extends beyond iconography, to issues of identity, sexuality, and nationalism. Fashion shares with the superhero an inherent metaphorical malleability which fuels its fascination with the idea and the ideal of the superhero."

Celebrity rumored to be attending the event are Scarlett Johansson, Kate Moss, Clare Danes, Rachel Bilson, Liv Tyler, Joy Bryant, Kate Bosworth and many others. But I haven't seen Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (regulars at the event) on any lists.

The main question is "What will they be wearing?"

Redefining a Classic

Once again Gap is collaborating with many a designer to re-invent the classic white shirt. You can find them on their website. Ranging from 78-88 dollars my personal favorites are the patchwork shirt by Band of Outsiders (seen on Chanel Iman at the launch party here) and the low tie neck top by Philip Lim.

Karl is Action-Packed

Who's the newest face of Grand Theft Auto?

Why, Karl Lagerfeld of course! The Chanel designer will be featured in the video games 4th installment as a radio dj. He picked his favorite tunes (electronica, dance) for the game.

According to Lagerfeld, "They had written a politically incorrect dialogue," the designer said. "I loved it, [particularly] in a time when everybody wants to be so politically correct when they talk."
