J.W Anderson

I was’nt quite so sure what to think of men in dresses but J.W Anderson does and maybe we should pay closer attention.

Over the past few year’s men’s runway looks have become increasingly feminine. From make up, floral prints, skinny jeans and platforms. But nothing we havn’t seen before in the 70’s 80’s and beyond but that aside if we take one major designer out of the spectrum of gender neutral fashion designers it’s a whole lot tamer.

I am now ready to embrace and understand the significance of it all. While in the past year many critics have voiced there surprisingly like for the designers collection at fashion week 2013 and 2014 it really has pushed the boundaries of social normality.

The enterprising fashion genius has made what would usually be classed as women’s clothing is for men, including ruffles, dresses and skirts knee high boots. The S/S 2013 collection was well received and branded a stroke of creative mastermind.

When his 2014 collection came it was different from the last with leathers or neoprene tunics in black white and beige hues and bow details. It seems obvious the young designer doesn’t find the boy/girl thing challenging.

In a recent interview with Fabien Constant Anderson he expressed clearly that he believes it only to be a big deal because we make it one  “were more backward than we’ve ever been”. He then goes on to defend his men’s dresses comparing them to the oversized rapper style t-shirt in relation to length so why is it unacceptable. He also explains he finds it confusing that a guy can be on a billboard in just underwear yet people make a bigger deal of his dresses for men. “Were uncomfortable with things we don’t understand” he said.

 

Andersons direction seems distinct he’s not willing to change it or let people make fun of it because he genuinely believes in breaking the traditions of gender coding and redefining the male image. And that is what he intends to continue doing.

Punk Rock Rules at the NY Met Gala

The New York annual Mat Gala bought us PunK Rock theme this year. Some took the theme a little over the top while others dawned beautiful gowns and still hinted at and embodied the image with touches of punk like accessories including studs, cuffs, and dipped hair ends. While the theme was bold and fun some stars did not get the memo and arrived to the gala in typical Hollywood red carpet attire. Many of the actresses and singers arrived along side there designers instantly telling viewers who they were wearing with out being asked. Katy Perry arrived in a metallic dress on the arms of the Italian duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The california girl also wore a princess grown and the punk chic style was evident.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual costume Institute Gala in New York was put together by the one and only editor and chief of Vogue Anna Wintour. The big event was jam packed with A listers and inside was rumored to be decorated all punk rock fitting for the theme. Anna Wintour let Kim Kardashian onto her red carpet this year but unfortunately the reality TV star came under tough scrutiny for her Ricardo Tisci dress which was compared to curtains several times for its traditional looking print. Kim wore gloves and matching shoes which consequently led to a floral pattern overload. Kanye preformed after dinner and shouted out to his baby mama she was beautiful. The crowd then applauded and screamed for the pregnant and usually stylish star.

Beyonce swanned up the red carpet in a Kenzo Dress worn with potentially questionable matching sky high boots that only she could pull off. Some how the entire ensemble gloves included looked fabulous teamed with her golden locks and train she was the star of the night as always. The jet setting star who is in the middle of touring took a night off for the much anticipated event.

Miley Cyrus was also widely criticized for her choice. The 20 year old singer wore a Marc Jacobs creation rumored to have been worn by Kate Moss years ago. The singer opted for spiking her short peroxide  hair a look evidently that didn’t sit well. I think that if Miley had worn the same dress with her prior brown tresses she would not have been under scrutiny for her choice at all but most people had a serious issue with her dramatically different hair. She was not the only star to dawn a peroxide do as Anne Hathaway arrived with a new peroxide pixie look also that she wore quite well in Valentino .

Rooney Mara was my personal favorite of the night in Givenchy also accompanied by the creative director Riccardo Tisci. The white romantic lace gown with a plunge neck was undoubtedly for me the winner of the night. She wore a very dark lip with her black hair that made the white illuminate as well as her. Nicole Richie did cream TopShop and a dark lip with white grey hair which also had a gothic theme to it.

Anna Wintour did not abide by the dress code and arrived in floor length Channel because she can and ho would question that. Sarah Jessica Parker wore a eccentric Philp Tracey creation resembling a mohican. The Sex and the City super star wore a Giles Deacon gown and LV boots but had a minor flash scenario.

Tiger Woods bought his new girlfriend ski champion Lindsey Vonn to the event and Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are rumored to be an item. Blake Lively  showed up in Gucci gown that was duck blue and bled into black sweeping the floor giving the impression of a feathered look the fashion icon did not arrive sadly with hubby Ryan Reynolds. Lastly Madonna made a serious statement the material girl barred all in chains a black wig and provocative baring tights. The material girl went above and beyond in a studied plaid Givenchy piece and not much else.

Tribeca Film Festival

Karolina Kurkova dawned this beautiful low cut black top and embellished skirt at the festival. A potentially risky choice maybe for your everyday girl but not when your a supermodel. The supermodel looks perfection and totally immaculate in the tuxedo ensemble. I love how she teamed it with simple black shoes and her choice of clutch. Hot or Not?

Neon Brights for Summer

It would seem as Summer approaches another thing to make sure is added to your wardrobe is bright accessories. More is more regarding colorful splashes of bangels, earrings, handbags and chain necklaces. The idea this Summer is color popping as opposed to coloring blocking like last Summer. To add a fruity, fun girly and vibrant look plenty of high street shops are displaying neons. Marc Jacobs has contributed with laptop cases, bracelets and watches that involve candy color red, orange, blue and pink. The rubber phone cases come in all types of variations at 40euro. Zara is doing pumps and aztec clutch bags for the season. The pumps come in fuchsia pink, blue and bright orange. Teamed with any white blouse and and jeans this would be an ideal accessory for taking part in the trend. Although high tops made there way onto the scene last year the Short rubber cuban heeled runner seems to be making a debut and being snapped up quickly at that to. Neon might be to much for some so minimize it with just the tiniest touch even in a hairband or ring.
