Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2016 Couture

Every designer has an inspiration for his or her collection, but few take their subject matter as far and as deep as Jean Paul Gaultier. He loves to play on the side of kitsch and shows some of the most ostentatious and bold looks on the runway season after season: creating one of the must-see catwalks consistently and essentially making him a natural fit for Couture. His Spring 2016 influence was that of legendary Parisian hotspot, Le Palace—a party go-to in the 70’s for people like Gaultier and all of his famous friends and muses.

Infinity & Beyond at Christian Dior

The #mirrored set at Christian Dior had to be the most talked about phenomenon of the day. Extending upwards, the oversized mirror looked as though to reflect the entire cityscape. As a replacement has yet to be named since Raf Simons’ departure, the Dior studio team put forth an on-brand 55 piece collection...

JI OH, BUDDING CFDA DARLING, IS A LABEL TO WATCH

When Ji Oh debuted her eponymous womenwear line at New York Fashion Week in 2014, her fall collection landed on the cover of WWD the following day and Barneys New York placed an order. “It was very memorable and rewarding,” she says. “And I felt like, ‘Okay, now I can do this.'” Oh’s checklist of achievements as a young designer on the rise only continued, and 2016 has proven to be a breakout year. Not only did she earn a sponsorship to show during Made Fashion Week in February, but the CFDA also selected Oh as a member of the CFDA Fashion Incubator Class of 2018, and she was named a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition.

But Oh’s success stems more from her determination to do well than simply sheer luck...

Missed Opportunities on the Oscars Red Carpet

Turns out the Oscar outfits were also white, #SoWhite…#SewWhite. Not merely the fabrics — though the nominee Rooney Mara looked like a medieval-castle bride in a Givenchy gown of cream translucent tapestry with a window over her midriff — but the fashion houses.

At an event being excoriated if not boycotted outright for its neglect of minorities, the red-carpet parade, in recent years derided for objectifying women, might have been claimed this year by nimble stylists as an opportunity to champion designers of color and independence.

But instead, viewers were treated mostly to a numbing procession of corporate labels including Chanel (Julianne Moore, in a deeply V-necked black gown with glitte...

WATCH CARA DELEVINGNE CRUSH A RAP BATTLE ON ‘THE LATE LATE SHOW’

As Cara Delevingne continues along her “Suicide Squad” press junket, she’s doing a fantastic job of proving her comedic, screen-commanding talent to the masses — something we fashion folks have loved about her for years — and to the many naysayers who doubt her abilities as an actress. On Wednesday, she visited the set of fellow Brit James Corden’s “The Late Late Show,” where she participated in a rap battle with the host and another young actor on the rise, Dave Franco.

Now, we won’t spoil the good parts for you, but let’s just say Delevingne eviscerates both men on a number of occasions, going so far as to close with the lyric: “You’re both shorter than me and I think that you’re fine, I’ve hooked up with hotter girls than both of you combined...
