Fashionista, the fashion gossip powerhouse, has stunned me with an exciting piece of news. I read about it just over a week ago but I did a bit of research and feel that I can just about explain these rather brilliant goings-on.
Now this little snippet of news has honestly made my day. Who would’ve guessed it but according to Vogue UK, Woody Allen is suing American Apparel for $10 million.
Last week, as news was released of the Macca divorce settlement, my brother Doug (as well as the lovely Kim over at Catwalk Queen) brought my attention to the criminal costume of Miss Mills.
As you may have noticed, Short shorts are a major topic of debate around Brandish. In fact, having failed to get my local MP to ask this at the House of Commons, I went to this week’s recording of Question Time. In between questions about the budget, I got up and yelled ‘but what about short shorts? Yay or Nay?’ I’ve got a funny feeling they won’t be airing that segment. It’s a shame really.
Recently, my colleague Jason posted on t-shirts from Raw Power that featured celebrities with painted faces and mug-shot style profiles. Now, Topman has picked up on the look and began creating copies for prices more attractive to shoppers.
Pete Wentz, bassist for Fall Out Boy and otherwise known as Ashlee Simpson’s boyfriend, has hit the fashion sphere.
For possibly the first time in its history, US Vogue is attracting attention for something other than its general lack of interest. The reason; this year’s ‘Shape Issue’ features LeBron James, the 6 ft 8 basketball player, posing with Gisele Bundchen, the 5 ft 11 supermodel. So, still questioning why this could be seen as interesting by those within the fashion world?
This month appears to be the month to be seen within the world of fashion magazines. From Madonna and Tom Ford to Drew Barrymore and Gwen Stefani; March is the issue in which all the magazines showcase the latest collections and therefore (along with September) it is the month that ever editor, reader and model either dreads or not-so-patiently awaits.
This week has been a bit of a short shorts
week here at Brandish. While they can look good, I’m still not convinced. For
me, short shorts conjure up images of Club Tropicana-era George Michael and
that’s not a look I wish to emulate.
We heard the rumours way back in January and the pictures are here. Keith Richards has been snapped by Annie Liebovitz for Louis Vuitton’s latest ad campaign which will make an appearance in April.
The NME Awards last night was a pretty stylish affair, most of the music crowd were dressed smartly although no one went for broke like the Arctic Monkeys at the Brits.
This year’s Brit Awards saw a pretty varied spectrum of red carpet-dressing. The men either went for smart-casual monochrome (Take That) with accessories such as elaborate ties and glittery belts or glorious brights (look out for my other post on Mark Ronson and Mika.) But one group of well-dressed individuals stood out. The Arctic Monkeys proved to be the attention-grabbing act of the night, whether it included their drunken thank-you speech (or slur,) their winning the Best Group of the Year or their spectacular look.
On Monday night, a new show began on BBC4. It involved bitterness, plotting, anger and plenty of drama but fear not, we are not witnessing the creation of yet another reality TV special but instead the tailor’s tales of Savile Row.
