Perry confirmed to The Australian that his eponymous label won’t be taking part in Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia for 2015 because he’d rather focus on its growth in the international market. “Just that ­European, Middle Eastern and Asian component has taken over what our sales are in Australia in two years,” Perry told The Australian.

The namesake brand, which has garnered attention from Giuliana Rancic, Gigi Hadid and Lucy Hale, has tallied an impressive 36 per cent growth overseas in the past two years, and Perry has just signed a US agent to make his schedule even busier. “Whilst we grow the business in the US, there’s a ceiling on what we are able to do here,” he explained.  “It’s unfortunate timing, but it is what it is.” (more…)

Gigi Hadid Gets Her First Solo Vogue Cover with Vogue Spain’s March Issue (Forum Buzz)

We’ve been waiting for Gigi Hadid’s feature for Vogue Spain to surface after the magazine took to its Instagram page to announce the collaboration a few weeks back. We needn’t wait any longer as the Spanish fashion title just released the final product. Gigi made the cover, which marks a first for the star of Pirelli’s 2015 calendar, who already fronts this month‘s Teen Vogue issue alongside Binx Walton (beating Kendall Jenner to a Vogue cover). Vogue Spain’s March 2015 cover sees the American beauty posed on the studio floor for Benny Horne, while wearing head-to-toe Gucci, giving us 70s supermodel vibes.

Members of our forums are currently voicing their opinions inside the thread. “Love it!! Gigi looks like the 70s/80s models. She has a very healthy and fresh beauty,” dina19 complimented, getting us off on a positive note.

“She looks stunning here, it’s a gorgeous cover,” added Miss Dalloway.

Feeling the same way was GlamorousBoy, who simply described the cover as “beautiful” inside the thread.

“No denying that this is gorgeous. No stopping Gigi,” declared TeeVanity.

But not everyone was on board. “I wonder what’s going on [in] the mind of Yolanda to pass such a cover for publication? On what universe is this counted as a high fashion cover worthy of a Vogue title?” asked MON.

“Oh geez Benny Horne, don’t lower yourself by associating with this magazine at its current tragic state,” HeatherAnne hissed.

“Gimme a break…” wrote Creative, suggesting he’s so over Gigi already.

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.
