Dior Is Bringing Its Cruise Collection Runway Show to Brooklyn Next Month

It's my personal theory that eventually Brooklyn will become so expensive and so overcrowded with ibankers and other bros eager to grind up against each other every morning on the subway during rush hour, all in exchange for a teeny tiny morsel of cultural cachet or whatever, that those of us who live here because it's a slightly more spacious and affordable alternative to Manhattan will be priced out of this borough and back onto that tiny stupid island of faddish pastries. By my calculations, I have approximately eighteen months max left in Brooklyn before it becomes unbearable here and I'm booted over to — who knows? Queens, Staten Island, (a newly vacant) Manhattan, Los Angeles, Vienna, whatever. Sounds great. Queens has great Chinese food, Staten Island has a ferry and I've never visited Vienna, but I hear very promising things about the coffee.

And for that reason — because the world is such a big place and there is room for all of us to thrive in it — I welcome Dior's decision to show its upcoming Cruise collection at Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn this May. The gorgous, light-soaked space, which we toured earlier this year just ahead of Alexander Wang's Fall 2014 show, appealed to the luxury label because of its unique space and East River views.

"We wanted the show to feel very New York, and the Navy Yard’s view and space captures the city,” a representative for the brand told WWD

To address the traffic issues which plagued guests gridlocked in the labyrinthine Navy Yard after Alexander Wang's show in February, Dior will arrange door-to-door transport for all attendees, with a combination of car service and ferry transport. The ferry will dock at 34th Street and FDR Drive and disembark directly at the entrance of the venue.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Moving to London

Today we received news that us Brits have been dreaming of for what seems like forever: the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be moving to London from its original home in New York.

Angels Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel started by teasing us on Twitter about a secret that they had, and this morning the models descended upon the lingerie giant’s Bond Street store to make the official announcement.

Joined by the brand’s Marketing Director Ed Razek, they announced the surprising news that their show will be taking place at London’s Earls Court on December 2. If you didn’t think that was exciting enough, they also exclusively revealed that Cara Delevingne may be gracing its catwalk again too, and this time it’s obviously on her home soil. Apparently, she was asked to save the date, and has managed to keep the news a secret for an entire week. So, will Cara be strutting her stuff alongside the angels in December? It looks very likely.

In light of Victoria’s Secret’s ever expanding British portfolio, it seems like a no brainer to move the show to London and further boost its profile over the pond… Even if it results in only being for one season.

Vogue Russia’s May Cover Is a ‘Hot Mess’ with Catherine McNeil (Forum Buzz)

The latest issue of Vogue Russia has Australian beauty Catherine McNeil on the cover. The model was photographed by Mariano Vivanco and styled by Olga Dunina. The outcome of the shoot is very earthy, with a laid-back McNeil blending in to the landscape which surrounds her as she wears pieces from fashion houses such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Dries van Noten and Proenza Schouler.

"Hot mess… And am I the only one that thinks cat is quite an oddball choice for Vogue Russia??" wrote A.D.C.

MyNameIs wasn't impressed: "Really strange composition. That coat/jacket/hood thing looks really awkward. The hair would look nice on its own but combined with all the text and the hood, it all comes out looking really busy and messy. Cat looks pretty though."

"She looks hot, don't get me wrong, but the hair and the hood are just so strange-looking on the cover," commented ALAUU.

Although more positive comments started to flood in with Miss Dalloway posting, "I love this cover, so striking, I dont even mind it has too many elements for a close up, it's what holds my attention."

"This would be fabulous with minimal text and a darker masthead, because the image itself is awesome," suggested Pyslocke, who went on to state, "Really love this as a cover shot. Shame about the layout. Cat does look like a 70s babe, love the dramatic makeup and fluffy hair on her."

So, we have mixed reactions from forum members. The cover shot reminds me of something Hans Feurer would shoot for Vogue back in the early 80s. Check out the thread and join the discussion here.

Would You Spend $1,290 on a Pair of Stockings? What If They Were from Saint Laurent?

If you had $1,290 to spend on anything, what would you choose?

  1. A 13-inch, 128 GB Macbook Air.
  2. A purebred Maine Coon kitten
  3. One month's rent for a room in Williamburg, Brooklyn, at current market rates. 
  4. A pair of silk trousers by Simone Rocha
  5. A round-trip ticket from New York City to Buenos Aires. 
  6. Saint Laurent crystal fishnet pantyhose

If you chose option #6, you are in luck!

Barneys and Saint Laurent have cornered the luxury bedazzled stockings market with a pair of Italian-made tights covered with sparkly Strass crystals. Billed as a simple way to "move from conference room to cocktail party," the item is available in both black and crystal.

Pyromaniacs will also be happy to know that the item is made from polyamide fabric, which is known to be nonflammable; $1,290 might sound like a lot of money, but at least you know you're buying something that was built to last.

Cameron Diaz Wears White Donna Karan on InStyle’s May Cover

It's no wonder, with the buzz surrounding Cameron Diaz's upcoming movie The Other Woman, that she has landed the cover of InStyle's May 2014 issue. The actress is seen wearing an all-white Donna Karan New York dress and a brown leather Tod's belt, which was styled by InStyle's style director Melissa Rubini.

This is a fantastic cover, no? It's extremely refreshing and I love the use of white. I am certainly in the mood for a summer vacation. The masthead works, the colors of the font complements the lighting of the photograph — everything is working in their favor here. It's a rare occasion that we see a magazine cover which does a celebrity justice. We are far too used to seeing over-edited cover shots, so I'm very satisfied with this.

Check out the InStyle – Worldwide thread and discuss the cover here. InStyle's May 2014 issue is available on newsstands from April 18.
