Alice in Wonderland is turning 150 this year and the V&A museum is planning to celebrate with The Alice Look, an exhibition highlighting the central character. The show will explore the impact that Alice has had on fashion and culture.

From May 2 to November 1, the V&A Museum of Childhood will have everything from sketches to music videos, all of which have been influenced by the tale. Some familiar works will be included in the exhibition, like Annie Leibovitz’s famous Alice-themed Vogue photoshoot starring Natalia Vodianova. This work will be on display alongside a collection that includes sketches, footage from runway shows and a rendering of Alice’s iconic outfit — the blue dress, white apron, tights and shoes — done by Josie Smith.

Sounds like it is shaping up to be quite a lovely homage to the beloved children’s character.

Cara Delevingne Interviews Kim Kardashian for LOVE

Cara Delevingne has a fancy new gig as LOVE magazine’s guest editor and for her first spin at the publication, she will be interviewing Kim Kardashian, LOVE‘s latest muse. We can presume only magic will ensue.

This morning, the magazine posted a teaser image to its Instagram of the pair, and we’re more than a little intrigued. The photo, a close-up shot of both Kim and Cara’s faces, features Mrs. Kardashian-West giving her most-perfected serene yet smoldering look, and Cara making one of her signature funny faces. 

LOVE has fully embraced the Kardashian-Jenner clan over the past year, featuring Kendall Jenner on one of its covers. This issue promises more Kendall, but also a generous helping of Kim in a 30-plus page spread shot by Steven Klein. It’s as if LOVE wants to take all our money.

LOVE‘s latest issue is set to hit shelves February 9.

Tom Ford Stars in His Own Fragrance Campaign, Vain or Innovative? (Forum Buzz)

By now, we’re used to seeing designers front their own campaigns. Jason Wu has become a regular face of his own namesake brand, Vivienne Westwood once posed alongside Pamela Anderson in Fall 2009 and it’s pretty well-known that Tom Ford prefers to star in his own advertising campaigns. This time around, the American fashion designer and one-time film director smolders in the new Noir Extreme spots, released on our forums over the weekend. Ford reclines in a stylish chaise longue wearing a crisp white shirt with the buttons undone as he entices us to try the new fragrance, which can be pre-ordered from Ford’s website now.

Ad Campaign Tom Ford Noir Extreme

Are our forum members impressed with Ford’s new ad? “Handsome guy, lovely to see him,” Nymphaea enthused the minute the shot surfaced.

“He’s attractive, but he’s getting more pretentious that kills his appeal little by little,” added OllieJE, unsure about the designer’s presence.

Miss Dalloway shared the same sentiments: “The man is a star, such presence! But I feel like I have seen this shot before, it’s very familiar, they could have done something different with him. He still sells it though!” Job done, right?

Also feeling the same was Thefrenchy, who echoed, “I love how they cropped the forehead to hide his receding hairline. He’s very sexy in the photo, though.”

Forum member justaguy agreed: “Don’t care for Tom posing in his own ads. Yes, he’s good-looking, but he’s got the same look whether it’s an ad, campaign, cover, etc.”

[Piece Of Me] basically wasn’t bothered: “Not the most original shot and I feel like we’ve seen it all before, but honestly who cares? So sexy!”

Do you think it’s pretentious of Ford to front his own campaigns, or just downright genius? Share your opinion with us here.

Rick Owens on His Revealing Men’s Runway Show

Rick Owens once again gave the fashion set something to talk about last week when he included a peep show in his fall menswear production, sending pantsless models down the runway in draped pieces that exposed some of the boys’ nether regions. It was certainly a bold move — we’re used to seeing degrees of female nudity on the runway, so why not give the fellas a chance to show off their goodies? 

“I pass classical marble statues of nude and draped figures in the park every day, and they are a vision of sensuality — yes, but also of grace and freedom,” Owens told WWD. “As a participant in one of our most progressive aesthetic arenas, am I not allowed to use this imagery? Is it only appropriate for a Michael Fassbender movie? I thought this might be an interesting question.”

Owens’ display exploded on the Internet and social media and was arguably one of the most talked-about shows of the men’s collections. But for him, it’s just another way to shake things up, make a statement and add to the ever-evolving conversation.

“It’s very powerful,” Owens told i-D. “Not many people can do that. I mean, it’s a straight world now. And it also, I think, says something about being independent. Who else can really get away with that kind of stuff? It’s a corporate world.”

Gap to Shutter Piperlime

Gap Inc. is making serious changes to its catalog as the company prepares for Art Peck to take his place as CEO next month. First item on the chopping block? Piperlime. The retailer has decided to shut down its boutique after less than 10 years in business by the end of April. 

According to Bloomberg, Piperlime only contributed to less than 1 percent of Gap’s profits. Gap itself has been having trouble and the retailer is hoping to kick up the numbers for its more profitable endeavors like Intermix, Athleta, Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic.

Piperlime sells clothes and accessories from contemporary and high-end brands as well as products from its namesake brand. Rag & Bone, Kate Spade, DVF, BCBGMaxAzria, Milly and Michael Kors are just a handful of some of the labels peddling wares on the site. Piperlime opened a stand-alone location in New York City’s SoHo district in 2012. 

Sad to see Piperlime go, but we will definitely be watching the site for any going out of business deals.
