The Most Ridiculous Moments from Kimye’s Pre-Wedding Dinner, as Told by André Leon Talley

You didn't think that because the Kimye wedding was billed as being an "intimate" affair that Vogue wouldn't be there to document the whole thing? After all, it was Kanye's *dream* for he and his wife-to-be to grace the cover, and that wish was granted by the grace of Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington, who suggested they put the couple on the cover in the first place. To return the favor, Kim and Kanye have invited André Leon Talley to write about the nuptials.

ALT never lets us down with his colorful quips and eye for detail. After reading his packing list for the affair and finding out that just one of his many capes takes up an entire heavy duty hockey gear bag,  we knew that any reportage to follow was going to be downright juicy and definitely hilarious… intentionally or unintentionally.

And so, today, the magazine published an account of Kim and Kanye's pre-wedding dinner, that went down at Valentino Garavani's Château de Wideville in France. Here are the highlights:

"Kourtney, my luncheon partner, was in white Alexander McQueen leather biker jacket and a long white lace Valentino dress that she purposely left long and trailing the ground. Fashion alert! Clearly the Kardashian sisters are bringing back maxi fashion by wearing long lace dresses for day."

Good one, uncle André! A man in a cape knows that maxis are always in style for day!

"And then, which bought tears to my eyes, in Italian, [Valentino] toasted Kim and Kanye: 'I wish you much success, a lot of love, and a long life.' 

We're guessing he's an easy crier.

"Conversation between Valentino, Kris, and Kim was all about Pilates. Valentino shared he does it every day with trainers in New York, London, and Paris, while Kris was questioning and seeking advice on where to put her new Pilates equipment at home."

Aaaand, just like your family, the Kardashian-Jenners sometimes have boring mealtime conversations.

“I love people who love food. When people don’t love food, they make me nervous,” [Valentino] said. His guest of honor, Kim chimed in. “There’s nothing better than sharing a great moment with people you love, it becomes a special memory.”

Non-sequitur much? Was Kim even listening to what Valentino was saying before she opened her mouth?

"As Kourtney shared memories of Kim cutting the bows from her favorite Dior pajamas when they were children, she asked for ginger ale, impossible to find anywhere in Paris. Presto, out of the waiter’s hand in five minutes was homemade ginger with lemon. (I asked for the same glass, and it was better than any ginger ale I ever tasted in my life.)"

So… Kourtney didn't get her ginger ale after all? Also: Parisians don't drink ginger ale? Ya'll slipping…

ROM Showcases Izzy Camilleri’s IZ Adaptive Collection

If the 2014 Lolë White Tour wasn’t enough to get you through the ROM doors this summer, then the mind-moulding museum has another treat in store for fashion lovers. On June 21, a new exhibition entitled Fashion Follows Form: Designs for Sitting will open at the Royal Ontario Museum, featuring fashions from internationally acclaimed, Toronto-based designer Izzy Camilleri’s IZ Adaptive collection.

The exhibition showcases Camilleri’s innovative, fashionable, functional — and affordable — designs that are among the first in the world created exclusively to meet the needs of women and men who use wheelchairs. Displayed alongside Camilleri’s designs are 18th and 19th century fashions from the ROM’s collection, also retrospectively created for a seated, L-shaped body.

Journalists Jeanne Beker and Barbara Turnbull are Honorary Chairs of exhibition, while the whole spectacle was made possible by the astute eye of Dr. Alexandra Palmer, the Nora E. Vaughan Fashion Costume Senior Curator in the ROM’s World Cultures department. Palmer says she was motivated to collaborate with Camilleri after discovering the designer’s shop in Toronto’s west end: “Izzy has been called ‘Canada’s most PC (Perfectly Cut) fashion designer’ for good reason. She has broken new ground by designing and creating pieces for maximum comfort, ease, and style for those who have traditionally had difficulty finding clothing that fits.”

Included in the exhibition is a Camillieri-designed leather jacket (as seen above with the adaptive back), trench coat, wedding dress, and tuxedo. Fashion Follows Form also features Camilleri's iconic designs including the silver fox coat worn by none other than Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada.

All the Details on Pharrell’s New Fragrance with Comme des Garçons

To say Pharrell Williams has been keeping busy these days would be a gross understatement. He just released a new solo album, Girl, is working on collaborations with Adidas, G-Star Jeans, Uniqlo, Moncler and possibly Google Glass. Now, he's releasing a fragrance with Comme des Garçons called "Girl." 

Despite its gender-specific nomenclature, the scent is actually unisex. Fitting, as Williams sometimes borrows from the girls to create his own looks: at the time he sat down with WWD to do an interview about his fragrance launch, he was wearing a knotted strand of Chanel pearls.

The fragrance has a woody smell, which Pharrell specifically wanted. The producer says he hugged Collete Paris founder and creative director Sarah Andelman at Art Basel a few years ago, and got a whiff of what she was wearing. "‘What is that?’ and she told me, Wonderwood. And from that moment on, I was just in love with what Comme [des Garçons] did.”

Housed in a colorful bottle designed by House + Holme, emblazoned with artwork by Williams' artist friend Kaws, the scent contains top notes of white pepper, lavender and neroli.

The fragrance is set to launch September 1, with prices ranging from $30 for a travel-size version and $135 for a 100-ml. bottle.

Mert Alas Teases Preview of DSquared2 Fall 2014 Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Social networks like Instagram have been brimming with teased covers and ad campaigns of late, offering us a sneak peek of what's to come. The latest ad to surface, caught by eagle-eyed forum members, is the DSquared2 F/W 14.15 campaign, lensed by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.

Ad Campaign Preview DSquared2 Amanda Murphy

Mert Alas (who's an avid Instagram user) uploaded a black and white image of Amanda Murphy donning a rather large blonde and bouffant hair style, whilst sitting on the edge of a bed wearing some intriguing arm accessories and, of course, DSquared2 clothing. The hashtags #broken, #hollywood and #asylum were attached to Mert's post, suggesting the mood of the advertising campaign.

Our forum members are on the fence regarding the previews: "She is soo pretty naive here, so soft and innocent despite her image," describes Alien Sex Friend.

"The images fall a little flat, but I think it's more because of M&M and their weak attempts at copying Steven Klein's work lately (their Versace campaign was a more successful Klein copy, but still). I've been waiting for Amanda to work with M&M & it's finally happening. Hopefully there are stronger images ahead," wrote valliaddict.

Marc10 also wasn't feeling the campaign and wrote, "This looks more like an Interview ed than a campaign. It doesn't really sell the collection, neither does Amanda fit in. She looks so out of it."
