It’s not every day that you receive an invite from Sir Philip Green asking you to view a collection during London Fashion Week. So, when a shiny iridescent pink invite landed in our post box asking us to view the new Design Collective for Evans, how could we resist?

It’s the first time that the plus-size retailer has showcased during LFW and it definitely didn’t disappoint. The show featured full outfits from the main collections of Clements Ribeiro, Giles Deacon, Hema Kaul, Jamie Wei Huang, Lulu Liu and Vita Gottlieb that have all been reworked to fit a fuller figure. If that wasn’t exciting enough, we also got the opportunity to see the designs by Yvonne Shu Yao, the winner of the third Cut for Evans contest as well as several pieces exclusively created by Evans’ own in-house design team. Evans’ own designs were inspired by light and reflection with the aim of being able to easily layer up or down. (more…)

Is John Galliano in Talks with Margiela? Renzo Rosso Says No

Could John Galliano soon have a new job? According to WWD, folks have been buzzing about a deal between the designer and President of OTB, Renzo Rosso. Rosso has been very vocal in his support of Galliano, saying, “Who wouldn’t like to work with him? If he ever got back his name, I would be the first to produce his collections.” OTB is the parent company of such brands as Diesel, Maison Martin Margiela, Marni and Viktor&Rolf.

Of course, people took that to mean Rosso was maybe in talks with the designer, perhaps to discuss a role at Maison Martin Margiela. Today, at the Just Cavalli show, Rosso denied any such dealings, but as we know, denial isn’t always the definitive last word in the world of fashion, especially when it comes to John Galliano. Remember when his publicist denied rumors that the designer would appear on Charlie Rose

Though only time will tell whether or not it will actually happen, Galliano for Margiela does sound pretty fabulous.

Flashback: Vogue Paris February 2008 with Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell

Oh, we remember this like it was yesterday. We can even recall the second we noticed the forum thread title loading before our very eyes and almost dropping down with excitement. For this week’s Flashback Series, we take a look back at the February 2008 issue of Vogue Paris. The cover features none other than two of modeling’s most iconic pairings, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. Shot by Mario Testino, the dynamic duo posed together wearing dresses from Louis Vuitton, styled by Carine Roitfeld.

The excitement wasn’t only over the fabulous cover shot — the content was overwhelming! The supermodels posed for a set of images inside the issue, also lensed by Testino, who shot the long-term buddies in black and white. To mark the one year anniversary of Anna Nicole Smith’s death, Emmanuelle Alt and Terry Richardson shot Natasha Poly channeling the lifestyle of  the late Playboy model. We see Poly caring for an elderly man, while being showered with expensive gifts from Chanel, Cartier and Louis Vuitton. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot Lily Donaldson in the Hollywood Hills looking like a real-life doll, while Peter Lindbergh photographed Isabeli Fontana resembling Amy Winehouse. The issue was certainly a nod to our modern culture!

Familiarize yourself with the contents, and don’t be afraid to reignite discussion inside the dormant thread here.

Moschino, What Did You Do to Barbie’s Hair?

Moschino showgoers got a little treat today and no, it wasn’t french fry shaped iPhone covers or anything mildly practical at all. This time, guests received a Moschino-branded Barbie doll, clad in a pretty badass pink zipper moto jacket and matching pencil skirt with an extended zip fly that folded over into a waistband. It’s a good thing Barbie doesn’t have human proportions or any actual genitalia because, my, my, that dip’s a little low.

Showgoers have been Tweeting and Instagramming up a storm over the dolls, and they’re pretty cute, but we couldn’t help but wonder: What’s going on with Barbie’s hair?

Barbie has rocked all manner of hairstyles, good and bad. But Coke can curls all pinned up in the style of Medusa? We’re not sure if it’s doing Barbie justice. 

At least her outfit is cute…

Michelle Phan has found herself in some legal trouble in recent months. She’s getting sued by Ultra Records for allegedly using the music of its dance music artists in her makeup tutorial videos without permission. Phan’s people maintained that the music was not used without consent and now, they are firing back at Ultra with a counterclaim saying so. 

Phan claims that she contacted Ultra Records Senior New Media Manager Jason Kilgore in 2009, requesting the green light to use music from one of the company’s artists, Kaskade. According to Phan, Kilgore wrote back that the label would be “more than happy” to grant Phan permission. She says that she struck up a deal with Ultra, allowing her to use music from the label’s artists, as long as she added the proper credits and provided iTunes links to any of the music used. By suing her, she says Ultra isn’t holding up its part of the deal. Ultra agreed to not file any Content ID claims against her.  (more…)

You had better stop what you’re doing and sit yourself down: Gemma Ward just opened Prada‘s Spring 2015 runway show in Milan. Yes, it’s true — she’s back! The baby-faced Aussie beauty turned heads as she made her way through the piles of purple colored sand which made up Prada’s runway setting. After an eight-year hiatus from the modeling industry to concentrate on an acting career, Gemma set not only Miuccia Prada‘s show ablaze but our forums as well.

tFSers cannot contain their excitement regarding Gemma’s major comeback this catwalk season, with almost five pages of discussion rapidly spawning with elated fans. “Holt sh*t Gemma just opened Prada!!!!!” commented orchidee, being the first to acknowledge Ward’s appearance inside her dedicated thread.

“I’m in shock since I saw her! Now that’s a proper major comeback!!!!!!!” continued Tinna.

FaithAkiyama was quick to join the discussion: “Wow just wow. That was one epic moment!” she exclaimed.

Also happy about the comeback was mackos who wrote, “Oh God. I’m in tears right now. Whatever happens next, THIS is the moment of the season. Period.”

“I can recognize that walk stance from miles away. There can only be one who walks like that. Welcome back!!!!!!!” raves Flashbang.

Luxx began to look ahead and questioned Gemma’s next move: “And so begins a new era of Gemma. Which cover do you think she’ll get? It’s only a matter of time!” she questioned.

“Welcome back Gemma! Honestly, I am so shocked! In a good way! How did she get to Milan without anyone seeing her?! She looked amazing at Prada and you can really see that she’s matured into a stunning young lady, I always forget she’s still only 26. I’m sure we’ll see more of her, not as much as we used to but I am beyond happy. This made my day,” wrote an ecstatic Elite13.

See inside Gemma’s thread here for even more well wishes, and check out the Prada show here. Don’t you just love Fashion Week?
