Prada’s The Iconoclasts Installation Is Heavy on the Fur

Prada unveiled its latest installation of The Iconoclasts last night at its SoHo flagship to a crowd of flamboyantly dressed guests and a sprinkling of similarly decked out celebs, a grouping which included Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kesha and Hailee Steinfeld. Most of the guests who turned out seemed to touch on the mood of the exhibit, which was in itself quite delightfully ostentatious.

Miuccia Prada tapped the talents of costume designer Michael Wilkinson (the man behind the flawless American Hustle wardrobe) and set designer/architect Tim Martin. The pair produced an army of mannequins with rhinestone-encrusted eyes, dressed in an array of cool girl club looks that did not skimp on fur or bling. On tap was everything from bikini tops and hot pants to sparkling floor-length gowns.

The space was a bit cramped with the crowd, but it did little to take away from the stunning display. Mannequins were positioned throughout the store space and as you walked down the stairs, giving guests opportunity for plenty of Instagrammable moments. In the thick of it, Hailee, whose mother was also on hand for the evening, mused on her earliest memories with the brand. “I feel like they’d [her Prada memories] have to do with you,” she said turning to the matriarch, who helped pinpoint Hailee’s first stint with Prada. “It was when they brought out the striped dress for you,” her mother replied, in the way of a mom who remembers every single thing you’ve ever worn does. “Yes! The first time I wore Prada to the SAG Awards in 2011, I wore the most spectacular orange, pink, black and white striped dress,” Hailee continued. “It was a moment.”

One that we all remember.

Watch: DVF Had the Best Response When Victoria Beckham Asked Her for Career Advice

When we think about women who have it all, Victoria Beckham’s name usually comes to mind. She’s got a wildly successful and critically acclaimed clothing line, great style, a smoking hot husband and four beautiful children. But like most working mothers who love their jobs, she’s got to find a balance between her family and her work life.

“It wasn’t until they first came to the show a few seasons ago that they actually realized that mommy does have a proper job,” she told Vanessa Friedman in a video for The New York Times. Victoria mentioned that sometimes she has to work late hours, which makes her miss her children before their bedtimes, especially in the days leading up to Fashion Week. She turned to industry vet and mother Diane von Furstenberg for advice, asking the designer if she ever felt guilty when she had to be away from her little ones in the name of fashion. “Never,” Victoria said DVF replied.

Watch the clip above to see Victoria at work in her South London studio.

Kendall, Cara and Binx Go Sci-Fi for Cover of Garage (Forum Buzz)

Here’s hoping Kendall Jenner actually sells magazines because she’s landed yet another cover, this time for Garage‘s Spring 2015 issue. The 19-year-old, who’s gaining respect from industry insiders, joins Cara Delevingne, Lara Stone, Joan Smalls and Binx Walton, who are each handed their own individual cover. Phil Poynter captured the beauties wearing headphones, resembling something from outer space with suspiciously flawless complexions.

Has the magazine done enough to interest our forum members? “This is probably the best that Kendall has ever looked (eye expression wise), but she just does not deserve to be included with that group,” comments marsnoop2.

VersaceVixen009 shared the same feelings, “This is probably the best work Kendall has done. Hers and Lara’s are the best. Binx’s looks awful, it’s such an unflattering angle and it’s clear her cheekbones were retouched to appear more sculpted.”

“Joan and Lara are my favs! But I have to say that Kendall looks good, thanks god she’s not sleeping as usual!” said thatsfierce.

JessRubik echoed the same sentiments and wrote, “Love Joan and Lara! And I can’t believe I’m saying this but Kendall looks good too.”

Yet not everyone was feeling it. Mistress f hissed, “Oh come on, Kendall here too?” Adding, “Anyway, Lara’s and Joan’s covers are the best. Hopefully I’ll get one of those two.” 

“I love that they all look like mutants in a girl group. So much work has been done to these girls in terms of retouching though. Kendall’s eyes have clearly been shaped to look more intense,” TREVOFASHIONISTO suggested.
