The Most Influential People in Fashion -- New York Magazine Anna WintourEditor-in-chief, VogueVogue, c’est moi. 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).

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."

untitled Style: ASAP Rocky x DKNY in new Donna Karan campaign Okayplayer The world of style has no rules but it was still an astonishing surprise to discover ASAP Rocky, prominently featured in DKNY‘s last campaign, fitting in perfectly in the crowd of renowned models ( Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Eliza Cummings and Dylan Rieder). Shot in October, the spot takes place around a yellow taxi cab in New York’s key location place: Times Square. Freshly dipped in a series of well-tailored suits, Rocky exuded confidence and charisma–and was definitely a good catch by DKNY.
