No fashion figure has ever played her power as strongly and cannily as the feared, respected, sharply intelligent Wintour. She can make a fledgling’s career in a single phone call (designers from John Galliano to Zac Posen owe her a debt of gratitude), anoint the next society muse (Lauren duPont, Jessica Joffe), and raise millions for her favorite causes ($26 million for the Met’s Costume Institute in the past eleven years, $14 million for various AIDS charities). Peter MarinoArchitect The premier set designer for the luxury-shopping experience, ever since he did Barneys’ uptown flagship back in 1992. Kim FranceEditor-in-chief, Lucky With Lucky, France has broken the wall between magazine and catalogue—and thus changed how clothes are bought and sold, all the way to the factory floor.

Style Profile… Bruce Pask Current job? Men’s Fashion Director at T Magazine. First job? I was a Newsie in Arizona– I delivered the Yuma Daily Sun (get it?!) First ‘major’ purchase? A Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date watch– I bought it when I was hired at Cargo Magazine. Do you collect anything in particular? I’ve saved a Playbill from every Broadway show that I’ve seen since moving to New York over 20 years ago. What are your wardrobe staples? I always have a pair of Levi’s 501’s in rotation. Clark’s Desert Boots have been a part of my wardrobe long before they became the go to footwear choice of Williamsburg. Favorite shops? Dries Van Noten’s Het Modepaleis in Antwerp is my Mecca. I’d also like to go to Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, I’ve never been! Most stylish movie? Gattaca. Daily reads? I love The New Yorker and am a huge fan of Adam Rapoport’s new incarnation of Bon Appetit. Drink of choice? I’m a big beer fan. Most visually inspiring place you’ve been? What do you wear when travelling? Shoe trees? Just shoe bags, no trees.
Rihanna is Fighting to Trademark Her Own Name — The Fashion Law Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, is in the midst of a battle with DC Comics to trademark her first name. Turns out, in June 2014, the superstar singer, by way of Roraj Trade LLC (the company that holds the rights to her intellectual property) filed to federally register the term "Robyn" in the class of goods/services in connection with “providing on-line non-downloadable general feature magazines." So, it appears Rihanna wants to use her real name in association with an online magazine venture. Enter: DC Comics, the American comic book giant, which has been responsible for publishing Batman since the 1930's and which has held a trademark registration for "Robin" (Batman's sidekick) for action figures and for comic books for years now. As a result, DC Comics is asking the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to keep the singer from registering her Robyn mark, as it is confusingly similar to DC's trademark.
Style Profile…Ni’ma Ford First job? It was actually at Abercrombie! I learned how to style outfits for customers. Thankfully, when my interest in that store died my passion for styling lived on. Now I’m a fashion stylist. What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever worn? I wore a black garbage bag as a head wrap once. Which part of your look have you experimented with recently? My hair is pretty fun. Next I think i’ll dye the front green and the back pink, maybe a streak of blue. Style icon? I would say early Lisa Bonet, she was so funky. She was fearless with everything; her blazers and brooches, the way she tied her hair… even her makeup colors! How does your upbringing reflect in your style today? My mother and grandmother were very stylish women. My grandmother’s vintage watch doubles as a bracelet with two bands of African beads and a soft gold face. Where else do you find unique pieces? There’s a church in Westchester that opens up the first Saturday of each month for flea market heaven. When do you dress your best?

I grew up in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union. During that time, imported goods from China were all you could buy. She made this dark dress with huge shoulders for my first day of school– I was 7 years old and my hair was cut into a short bob. Which pieces in your wardrobe do you cherish most? I have this black leather vest that my father gave me when I was 14– I only recently began to wear it. How have you surprised yourself recently? I adopted a huge hairless rat, and I absolutely love him! It is my second rat– the other one has curly hair. What led you to pursue music? I ignored my Opera singing ability for years. Perhaps singing in the Met one day is an ambitious desire, but it’s another piece of the puzzle… What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever worn? A ballerina dress! What do you build your daily look around? I spend about 10 minutes getting dressed– a men’s Helmut Lang cashmere sweater has been my starting point lately.
co Chanel Pictures And Quotes Douglas Kirkland 20 November 2014 Lauren Milligan A NEW book of Coco Chanel pictures - taken over just three weeks in 1962 by photographer Douglas Kirkland - shows a new side to the formidable and brilliant "Mademoiselle". Kirkland, who spent 21 days with Chanel in her apartment in the Ritz, at the studio preparing for a catwalk show, and on a weekend trip to Versailles, revealed that he built a friendly relationship with the designer - but never saw her remove her signature hat. Related Gallery "I assumed, like many French people at the time, that she didn't speak English," Kirkland explains in the book. Kirkland - who has photographed stars including Angelina Jolie and Marilyn Monroe - is releasing 100 copies of a deluxe limited-edition version of the book, complete with a signed print, priced at $250, while the standard edition will retail at $50.
