Details of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibition London Showcase Revealed

Since discovering that London’s V&A was set to become the new home of the acclaimed Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition, we’ve been eagerly awaiting to find out more. So we definitely weren’t disappointed when Vogue U.K. revealed some juicy details.

Quite possibly the most exciting revelation was the life-size revival of his infamous Kate Moss hologram, originally from the designer’s 2006 runway show in response to her cocaine scandal. A miniature version was previously on display at the Met, but that’s nothing compared to the immersive experience of standing next to a full-size Kate.

McQueen’s humble origins and how he worked his way up within the fashion industry are widely known, but can you really recall all of his early work? Probably not, so it’s great to hear that the exhibition also includes a room that’s entirely themed around his early career in London. It’s always interesting to look at a designer’s work from the beginning of their career and see how their signatures developed over time. (more…)

Gemma Ward has got everyone in fashion stoked about her return to the industry. She made a catwalk appearance at Prada this season after eight years of being out of the game. She didn’t completely disappear from the public eye — she was cast in a few high-profile films, including The Great Gatsby and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. But it seems like Gemma is back, possibly for good. Now, she’s starring in a campaign for Australian brand Country Road alongside none other than her infant daughter Naia.

ELLE’s November Issue Celebrates ‘Women in Hollywood’ with Three Different Covers (Forum Buzz)

ELLE‘s annual “Women in Hollywood” issue has surfaced on our forums and the magazine tapped some of acting’s finest as cover subjects. Jennifer Garner, Tina Fey and Zoe Saldana each scored a cover and all three will be available on newsstands beginning October 21. Paola Kudacki photographed the three actresses and also shot Elizabeth Banks, Annette Bening, Jessica Lange, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Brie Larson for the issue with great results.

Members of our forums are voicing which cover is their favorite. “Wow! I must admit, Tina is looking quite glamorous here, very nice!” complimented justaguy.

“Tina looks amazing. Her cover reminds me of the good old days of ELLE UK,” raved fluxxx.

Also in favor of Tina’s cover was MON: “Tina Fey’s cover is pure perfection. Chic!”

Yet A.D.C. wasn’t impressed with the styling, “How dare they wrap Tina’s body in a trench! I’m outraged!!”

“All three women look great imo. I don’t remember another time where Garner looked this interesting,” echoed kokobombon.

“I like this, and especially love Zoe’s cover, the movement is amazing,” enthused Miss Dalloway, proclaiming the pregnant star’s take as her favorite.

“Jennifer’s cover isn’t the best but I’m always happy to see her. Zoe on the other hand looks spectacular,” agreed KateTheGreatest.

Forum member narcyza also rated Zoe’s as the strongest: “All covers are simple and chic but Zoe’s the best, she looks amazing.”

Daring or Dated? Anne Hathaway Is Harper’s Bazaar’s November Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

The American edition of Harper’s Bazaar is rich in fashion imagery, therefore we don’t blame it for emulating one of its most iconic covers from the archives. Anne Hathaway stars on the magazine’s November 2014 issue and the concept appears to have been copied from the January 1995 cover with Linda Evangelista. Photographed by Alexi Lubomirski, Anne wears a show-stopping red couture piece from Armani Privé, while blowing a kiss out to the reader.

Our forum members feel as though the cover should have been left until December. “Wow, it looks so festive. Even more than Katy Perry‘s cover from October. I wonder how festive their December cover will be,” commented mikel.

“Again with the color overload, I wouldn’t mind this for December, but it’s just so literal. Compare this with the covers earlier this year and see! Guess I’ll have to wait for the sub edition,” agreed Benn98.

MON shared his sentiments: “It’s a nice cover but it’s too festive for a November cover.”

Another forum member who thought the cover wasn’t appropriate for the month of November was narcyza. “It’s for Valentine’s Day?” she questioned and then went on to say, “I really don’t like this all red cover and I’m sick of Anne. She is everywhere.”

“These are gross, like rejected Estée Lauder ads from the early 90s,” disapproved jeremydante.

In the minority was justaguy, who thought the festive look of the cover worked: “As cheesy and typical of US Harper’s Bazaar as this cover is, it will appeal to the masses as they’re checking out at the grocery store. And Anne does look really pretty and festive here.”

“This is lovely, I love all the red and Anne looks great. Reminds me of that shot of Linda Evangelista in the yellow dress though,” shared LastNight.

Apple Watch Debuts in Vogue China

With the impending release of its first wearable, Apple has been steadily courting the fashion set. The company invited members of the fashion community to the unveiling of its Apple Watch and even held a few events at Paris Fashion Week last month promoting the new device. The tech giant’s “chicifying” of the timepiece continues, since Apple Watch is prominently featured on the cover of November’s Vogue China.

Liu Wen, who is rumored to be appearing in Apple’s forthcoming campaign for the wearable, is pictured in a multi-stripe knit frock with the watch prominently displayed on her wrist. The accompanying spread features her wearing various outfits accessorized with the watch with a few of its (many) different bands. 

Indeed, Vogue China is probably one of the best fashion magazines to choose for this big editorial debut. As Editor-in-Chief Angelica Cheung pointed out to The Business of Fashion“Chinese people are actually very digitally minded and we embrace new technology and digital products more easily than perhaps people elsewhere. We are an ancient country but at the same time a very young country when it comes to fashion and new products. We love to embrace everything that is new, modern and positive.” 

Considering the reaction so far to the watch, the move makes a lot of sense. As the Verge reported last month at Apple’s Colette Paris unveiling, a few fashionistas there were less-than-impressed by the new device. Given China’s penchant to adopt what is new and next on the tech front, it is kind of a match made in heaven for Apple and Vogue

Still, it will be interesting to see if and how the fashion community at large embraces the Apple Watch. Google Glass is another tech company flirting with fashion — it recently released versions of its device with stylish frames designed by Diane von Furstenberg at Net-a-Porter. But we think that in order for Apple Watch to get the kind of loving reception that, say, its iPhone does from the fashion industry, it’s going to have to be at least easy to use. The style component it’s got covered, but if the device doesn’t boast the type of user-friendly interface the tech giant is known for, it might not catch on in the way the brand hopes.

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens as Apple rolls out the device next year.

The man responsible for Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby, Baz Luhrmann, and his wife, costume designer Catherine Martin, are throwing the party to trump all parties at New York’s Central Park Zoo. We’re excited, and you should be too, because things are about to get wild.

Page Six reports that everyone who’s anyone is expected to show at the zoo-turned-wonderland, which will act as the opening-night event for the couple’s takeover of Barneys’ Madison Avenue store this holiday season.

Baz and Catherine will be creating the ultimate in-store experience as part of the project called — wait for it — Baz Dazzled Holiday. If you happen to be in the area, plan a pit stop to explore the pair’s magical world of fantastical characters and creatures, plus some snow owls and candy canes.

It sounds like Barneys is about to become the best kind of winter wonderland, but the party, taking place on November 13, is sure to go down in the history books. The man’s a genius.
