And the 2015 Met Gala Theme is…

This year's Charles James exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has been running for only a few weeks, but it looks like the folks at the museum have already started thinking about next year's theme, for which they will look to the East. First reported by WWD, rumors are still swirling that next year's exhibit will focus on China

China is a country rich in history, art and culture–it will certainly be exciting to see what creations designers offer up for the show. Still, I can't shake the uh-oh feeling in my stomach I get each time I hear about the theme. Let's just say, sometimes, fashion people can be a little, uh, clueless when it comes to celebrating non-western cultures. I can't even count the times we've seen the fashion set twirling in blackface, tribal headdresses and Geisha garb like everything is peachy, while the rest of the Internet rages about cultural appropriation, racist imagery and the whitewashing or total erasure of people of color in "inspired" work.

I'm sure Anna Wintour won't take any foolishness at her party next year, but with images of people dressed in chains at last year's Disco Africa Halloween party dancing in my head, you really can't guarantee that someone won't do something in poor taste. Hopefully, that's something we won't have to worry about next year.

Don't mess this one up, guys.

Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn Struggle to Remember What They Said When They Won That Emmy

Hamptons magazine held its annual Memorial Day Fête this weekend at Southampton Social Club with this month's cover girl, Heidi Klum. A slew of stylish notables, like Ariana Rockefeller, Joe Zee and Aviva Drescher came out to celebrate. 

Before the affair, Heidi's Project Runway co-host Tim Gunn caught up with his friend for a Q&A and a little reminiscing about that time they won an Emmy Award last year…although the pair admits they don't remember many of the details about their big moment:

HK: We were a little bit tipsy because we went on stage at the beginning of the Emmys, then we had three hours in between presenting and our award. We said, "Let’s have a glass of Champagne. We are looking fabulous; we are in a fabulous mood; we are excited to be nominated and nervous.” We ran across the street to the Marriott and got a little tipsy. The producers came [and got us before our award]. We were sitting in the front row, and on stage Neil Patrick Harris says, “Okay,next category, reality television…. and here are the nominees…. and the winners are Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum.” Whatever happened in that moment I can’t properly recall because we had a few glasses of Champagne and I couldn’t believe that they said our names. I feel like you talked the whole time, and I was the echo.

TG: I don’t remember a thing I said. I only remember that we got backstage after we had our trophies in hand and we looked at each other and asked, “What did we just say?” And we didn’t know.

Kim and Kanye weren't the only celebrity couple having lavish wedding parties this weekend. Not to be outdone by the reality/hip-hop duo, Poppy Delevingne and her now-husband James Cook held a second wedding ceremony in Marrakesh this weekend and fortunately for us, guests were allowed to Instagram the affair to their hearts' content.

Emilio Pucci creative director Peter Dundas took full advantage of the lifting of the Instagram ban, creating an account on the social media platform just in time for the event. One of his first posts (now deleted) was an image of the bride, clad in a 70s-style gown, blooming with floral appliqués and flowing sleeves.

Dundas continued to litter his IG with glamorous shots of beautiful fashion people partying all weekend. The guest list boasted names like Matthew WilliamsonBeatrice of York, Arizona Muse, Derek Blasberg, Suki WaterhouseGeorgia May Jagger and more, all of whom danced away at the post-ceremony rave.

Take a look at some of the snaps Dundas took through the wild weekend:

Christopher Esber’s AW 2014 Campaign Takes Pared Back Aussie Cool to Paris

It’s not just anyone who can make crotch-skimming shots look appropriate for wearing while conducting boardroom meetings, but Christopher Esber nailed it last month at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.

Now he’s dropped the lookbook for Autumn Winter 2014 and it’s an equally unexpected blend of Australian cool and corporate dress code adherence. Coats are both billowing and structured, and sleek maxi-length dresses with intricate details wouldn’t look weird as (very expensive) beach cover-ups. Though one of the most satisfying things with Esber is how seamlessly everything would appear to slide into your existing wardrobe, which is emphasized here in pragmatic layering. Both you and your mum would approve of a turtleneck sweater under a heavy vest. 

Of course, it would be rude not to mention textiles. As the winner of the Australian leg of the International Woolmark Prize last year, just one of the many industry accolades he’s picked up in recent seasons, Esber is helping illustrate the diverse potential of knitwear. Also, sustainability! You can’t argue with that.

Esber tapped highly underrated model Charlotte Coquelin for the campaign, which was shot around the Pont Alexandre III in Paris. Photographer James Nelson’s gritty shots of the opulently decorated bridge are pretty on par with Esber’s raw, minimalist aesthetic (and perfectly complementary to Coquelin’s face).
