MELANIA TRUMP: NO ONE WANTS TO DRESS HER?

We can’t help but wonder if those designers who haughtily announced they are NOT interested in dressing First Lady Melania Trump, are having second thoughts. Tom Ford led the pack and was followed by the likes of Zac Posen, Derek Lam, Marc Jacobs etc. Should they punish Melania for her husband’s politics? She is probably the most photogenic First Lady in the world and will be constantly under scrutiny. Will these hard-nose designers soften up or are they afraid to appear to be Trump supporters? An interesting dilemma.

FORGET THE SPICE GIRLS, VICTORIA BECKHAM IS A DESIGNER!

Victoria Beckham is no longer a former Spice Girl dabbling in design – she’s a full- fledged DESIGNER! When she started her clothing business, Victoria’s creations were all sexy, skin tight, and uncomfortable. They were aimed at club girls with loads of money and movie stars on red carpets. Ho-hum. We were impressed with her BIG PANTS recently and now she’s taken it a step further with her BIG SUIT. We LOVE this (80’s inspired?) oversized khaki suit – it’s something a woman with a job could wear and look special. We still get a kick out of the fact that Victoria wears the tallest platform shoes and her companions wear sneakers…

JEREMY SCOTT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE A TRUCK DRIVER

We love a designer who LOOKS like a designer and wears his own creations. Jeremy Scott, 40, has always been extravagant in his appearance and he’s the perfect creative director for the whimsical Moschino collection. Jeremy has his own Scott collection and he also was a successful designer for Adidas. Pop stars like Rihanna and Katy Perry love his fun stuff. We’re not altogether sure of what he’s wearing above, but certainly some of it is Moschino.

MELISSA MCCARTHY LEFT OUT THE MOST IMPORTANT DETAILS

AG007831_09melcut

Melissa McCarthy ALMOST had our instant admiration when she declared in a Redbook interview that when she was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2012 that she contacted five or six top designers to make her a red carpet gown, and they all turned her down. We say she ALMOST had our admiration because she refused to NAME the snobbish designers who gave her the brush-off! This is something we’d like to know and Melissa seems like a bold enough woman to name names. But she didn’t. Why is she protecting these designers who didn’t give a damn about HER?

COURTNEY LOVE AND HER PUNK- ROCK- CHICK FASHION COLLECTION

#courtneylove #janetcharlton


Courtney Love has sold a lot of her wardrobe on eBay and now she’s introducing her own special collection of “rock chick” clothing that’s called “Never the Bride.” It’s everything from lingerie to pantsuits with a Victorian/Edwardian edge. Many vintage garments are pieced together and heavily embellished. Very reminiscent of Courtney’s thrashed stage look in the early “Sid & Nancy” years. We bet Taylor Momsen will be the first one in line for this.

VICTORIA BECKHAM DID IT AGAIN – ON PURPOSE

#victoriabeckham #janetcharlton

We love celebrity designers who proudly wear their own clothes. It indicates that the designer is not just a name on the merchandise with all the actual creative work being done by someone else. Gwen Stefani is very hands-on with her clothing collections and she and her kids wear her distinctive styles every day and look great. Victoria Beckham’s dress collection is doing extremely well in high end shops and she’s a walking advertisement for her company. Victoria rarely wears the same thing twice, but when she does, you can bet it’s one of her own designs.

WHY WE BELIEVE THAT BRAD AND ANGELINA REALLY ARE ENGAGED THIS TIME

After many years of false cover stories on magazines announcing that Brad and Angelina were secretly engaged or even married, it’s finally happened for real. We know it’s true because Brad designed Angelina’s ring and the jeweler he collaborated with verified the news. It’s not the first time Brad has designed jewelry. He also designed his and hers engagement rings for himself and Jennifer Aniston. At that time he worked with the Italian jeweler Damiani, who promptly knocked off his design and sold a less expensive version until Brad sued the company. This time around Brad worked with Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop to create an exclusive ring. Procop provides much of the jewelry Angelina wears for special events and advertises that fact.

DESIGN STAR: MEDIOCRITY IS THE PARAGON

We’ve been bombarded with publicity for “Fashion Star” that debuted last night, and being big fans of “Project Runway,” we made a point to see it. It’s much glitzier than “Runway” – the set is extravagant and features a runway for the numerous mini-fashion shows. Host Elle Macpherson is a bit more likeable than Heidi Klum, and the judges, Nicole Richie, John Varvatos, (yes, they have men’s wear too!) and Jessica Simpson, are observant and talkative. The gimmick of having buyers from H&M, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Macy’s, purchasing the designs they like for their stores is innovative. But there’s one big fat problem: the fashions are beyond boring! The first group of designers presented creations we’ve already seen and walked past in stores for YEARS. “Runway” designers are encouraged to be innovative, “Fashion Star” competitors are urged to please the masses. It’s difficult to imagine any of these designers becoming successful with such UNMEMORABLE clothes. Perhaps having to please chain store buyers stifles creativity- it might be better to have cool boutiques doing the buying.

MICHELE OBAMA IN HER VINTAGE NORMAN NORELL

Courageous Michelle Obama has done something no first lady has ever done before – she actually wore a second hand dress to a major event in Washington! She wore a 1950’s cocktail dress designed by American designer Norman Norell to a Christmas in Washington concert. It’s believed to have come from the shop New York Vintage. Vintage designer fashion has been quietly growing in popularity because celebrities want something different and these glamorous fashions are beautifully made and one of a kind. How delightful to have such a hip and imaginative first lady. This will be the talk of the fashion world.
