Westfield London Celebrates 5th Anniversary with High Fashion Sweatshirts

If you’re familiar with shopping in London, then you’ll no doubt be a regular at Westfield London, and can you believe that this year the shopping centre chain is already celebrating five years? To mark the occasion, they’re hosting an array of mini events and promotions which includes the creation of some limited-edition sweatshirts.

Now, what makes their special birthday collection all the more exciting is the fact that they’ve teamed up with five London based designers in the form of Louise Gray, Richard Nicoll, Sophia Webster, Peter Pilotto and Thomas Tait. Each of the designers have stayed true to their own design signatures and transformed ordinary sweatshirts into designer feeling must-have pieces.

The collection launched today and is running for five days only until November 4 at a special pop up inside Westfield London’s shopping centre. They’re retailing at £65 which is quite a reasonable price considering that they’ve been created by some of London’s most sought-after design talent.

We’re torn between Louise Gray’s and Peter Pilotto’s sweats. Gray’s features her typically loud clashing patterns whilst Pilotto’s is definitely a lot more classic in black and gold.

For more information about the collection or to simply find out more about each of the chosen London designers, head over to Westfield London’s site.

Joan Smalls Covers The Latest Issue Of Style.com (Forum Buzz)

The #1 model of the world (according to the models.com ranking) Joan Smalls covers the Spring 2014 print edition of Style.com Print magazine. For its fifth issue, the publication hired photographer Collier Schorr to shoot the Puerto Rican topmodel in a look by Hood by Air for the melancholic cover image. The reactions on the tFS forums to the cover of the issue that focuses on Streetwear were mixed.

“Simply divine. That is all”, posted Nepenthes

“Nothing really special”, found VogueDisciple93. He further pointed out, “Hopefully the content is a little better than the last issue, but with a bleak season to work with I doubt it can be.”

fashionlover2001 wasn’t a fan of the cover either and commented, “Meh… Doesn't even look much like Joan to me.”

Melancholybaby loved the silver border and Bertrando3 appreciated the pose and styling, while gossiping found the cover “gorgeous” and UrbanStylin found it “stunning”. 

It’s an interesting choice to feature an outfit by a considerably unknown brand on the cover of this magazine, considering the emphasis on high fashion on the style.com website. But in their review of the collection, style.com asked, “Is Hood by Air the most exciting young brand in New York?”, and answered with, “It's certainly the most out-of-the-box and compelling.” VogueDisciple93 might be right in assuming that with what the Spring 2014 season provided it could be difficult for magazines to produce intriguing stories featuring the usual major fashion brands. Therefore I applaud style.com for doing something unexpected in featuring an up-and-coming brand, for which Joan Smalls actually makes a perfect poster child.

Fall Must List: Cute Ways to Ensure You Are Raising a Monster

Of course, most parents want to do the best for their children. Some might think that involves costuming their wee ones as Chanel bags on Halloween, but any truly involved parent knows that one day a year is hardly enough time to instill a strong sense of brand loyalty in any growing boy or girl. Jean Paul Gaultier was presumably catering to this enlightened market with his upcoming kid-only couture line, practically the first of its kind. Following Gaultier's lead, we realize we've been seriously remiss to not include more coverage of ridiculous children's fashion, and that's going to change right here, right now. 

Do you want to dress your real or imagined daughter in a way that helps foster her materialism, superficiality and status-obsession? Today, you're in luck. Here are some very cute pieces, culled from the kid's section at Barneys.com, which are perfect for any pretty pretty little princess who loves throwing tantrums in style. And remember: her body and her brain may not be fully developed, but that doesn't mean she shouldn't have the very best.

Matt Lauer (Wearing a Pam Anderson Costume) is Halloween’s Best Dressed

Contrary to what I said in my previous post, there are in fact some Halloween costumes that can't be improved with zombie makeup. One example: This morning, television host Matt Lauer dressed up as Pamela Anderson in Baywatch for The Today Show's classic TV-themed costume segment. He looks spectacular.

As it happens, this was not Lauer's first time gender-bending for Halloween. In 2004, the TV presenter appeared on The Today Show dressed up as Paris Hilton, chihuahua and all. (The Today Show website points out that Lauer wore a Jennifer Lopez x green Versace dress costume in 2000.) In recent years, he's also dressed up as Prince William, Han Solo, Humpty Dumpty and Frankenstein.

Lady Gaga’s Halloween Costume Lacks Zombie Gashes and Bloody Layers of Skin

Earlier today, Lady Gaga was photographed leaving her hotel wearing (in the words of our photo service) "traditional Japanese Geisha attire." However, based on my rudimentary Google Images searching, the Dr. Seuss conch umbrella she's carrying is not at all traditional.

Here's another woman putting her own nontraditional twist on the geisha costume, photographed in Hong Kong in 2009:

The lesson: Zombie makeup, please just do it. (There's a Michelle Phan video tutorial available here, so you have no excuse.)
