"Seventy Two Changes"


Feb21

When Gwen Stefani announced that she was going to start her own clothing line, no one could have known that it would be as successful as it is, succumbing to none of the pitfalls of other celebrity-backed lines (Jennifer Lopez’s Sweetface comes to mind). So when L.A.M.B. co-founder Ken Erman decided to partner with Taiwanese Mandopop star Jolin Tsai to launch her own line, we couldn’t wait to take a look.

Named after Tsai’s 2003 hit single, Seventy Two Changes refers to a constant evolution, according to Tsai, whether it’s changing her style on a day to day basis depending on her whims, or an evolution of self, music and inspiration throughout her life. “Through my music, you can see that my style represents different periods of my life,” she says.

It’s clear which way Tsai angled Seventy Two Changes, at least for her debut fall 2009 collection. Inspired by Comme des Garcon and Marc Jacobs, Tsai relied on elements of contemporary jazz dance with clear street influences. Tuxedo-style jackets are paired with grunge-inspired plaid (an apparent nod to early Marc Jacobs), street-wise dresses and vests are roughed up with zippers and studs. Though Tsai’s personal favorite is the “Rocker Chic” group, which includes a purple leather biker-inspired jacket and leather leggings with long gold zippers, she doesn’t necessarily wear it head to toe. It’s all meant to be worn mixed and matched, a bit disheveled, like you’ve just come back from a long night of clubbing in the Lower East Side. Precious it isn’t.

Based in Taiwan, Tsai says that the country is more influenced by Japanese fashion – “People like bright colors and cute styles,” she says. American fashion, on the other hand, is more “street,” with “large statement jewels and trims.”

For her next collection, Tsai plans on continuing to combine “an Asian influence with a SoHo vibe” by incorporating more colorful and playful elements, but with plenty of bold embellishments. And of course, as always, her music will be in the background, as inspiration.

Celebrity Stylist Robert Verdi's Top Wardrobe Tips


Feb21

Even for stars with great fashion sense, putting a great red carpet look together can be a daunting task. That’s where stylists like fashion guru like Robert Verdi come. Verdi can be credited with dressing Eva Longoria Parker, Ana Ortiz and Kathy Griffin in the latest designer creations.

These days, Verdi can be seen working his fashion magic on his self-titled series on the Logo cable network Wednesday nights at 10 PM, styling Ortiz for a photo shoot in this week's episode, or prepping Longoria Parker for a gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. "You see the process of us going for the fittings," says Verdi, though the series' main focus is on his wacky scheme-of-the-week. "It follows me as I try to make these outrageous things happen. I don't always get what I want," he notes.

Nevertheless, the Portuguese-French first-generation American feels grateful for his success and isn't about to give up his lucrative day job, which has led to a spot as a judge on TV Land’s She's Got the Look, an older-model competition that will return in the spring.

For his Latina clients especially, Verdi is fond of the array of color available now. "What's interesting about Latina women is that black is not the basis of the wardrobe. It's red, white, vivid colors. Jewel tones and colors like coral, turquoise blue, orange, aubergine, amethyst. Anything rich," he says.

He thinks that every woman's wardrobe should include "a great jacket, a utility blazer you can use with everything, maybe a great tuxedo jacket. It doesn't have to be in fancy satin, just the silhouette of a great men's jacket, with a single button and peak lapel, in a gabardine. A great trouser is important, so is a great pair of jeans. And a pencil skirt," he adds, "preferably in a fabric that's a little dressier, and a tuxedo shirt, maybe with ruffles, that you can wear with the skirt or jeans." Versatility is key with these pieces, he points out. "The secret of successful dressing," he believes, "is being able to go from day to night and work to weekend."

Mark Indelicato to Intern at Teen Vogue


Feb21

Mark Indelicato has landed his dream job! He is going to be interning at Teen Vogue this spring, when the finale season of Ugly Betty is done filming. The teen star—who plays Ana Ortiz's fashion obsessed son on the ABC show—is a real life style maven with a passion for fashion.

Rumor has it that the move to Teen Vogue may also give him his next big break in television, there is a possibility that his internship experience will be turned into a reality TV show. "I want to have a reality show about it." Indelicato confirmed. "My boss said he’s determined to make me cry. He said it makes good TV,” he dished to In Touch Weekly at Joonbug.com’s Style 360 Kick Off party.

Indelicato, 15, is currently studying at the prestigious Professional Performing Arts School in New York City and although he admits he will miss his costars when Ugly Betty wraps, he is looking forward to the future. "I think we’ll all go to bigger and better things, and it’ll be perfect — everything is going to be fabulous!"

(Latina magazine)

First I would like to start by saying, that I hate the fact that "Ugly Betty" is nearing it's end. I can think of other shows that have definitely run their course and should be eliminated, but this is not one of them. The entire cast is great......my hope is that all will be successful in finding other pursuits.

Mark, who is one of my favorites from the cast, recently appeared on The Wendy Williams show and spoke about his being home schooled up to this point and that his first "big purchase" was a Louis Vuitton duffle bag. His all to brief interview was funny and memorable. I'm sure that we haven't seen or heard the last of him.....who know, he could have a new career on the horizon.

Crystal Renn, Size 16, Struts her Stuff During London Fashion Week


Feb21

Once again, designer Mark Fast broke the long-standing, and often unhealthy, rules of fashion by sending plus-size models down his runway today in London. Last season, in a much-publicized move, Fast booked size 10-14 models in addition to the standard size zero. For fall 2010 he continued to prove his point: chic clothes are chic clothes, no matter your size. Proving this perfectly was the stunning size 16 model Crystal Renn, who wore two looks in the designer's show today (in stark contrast, the super-skinny Anouck Lepere closed out the show). Soon, Fast's signature clingy knits will be available to all at Topshop stores.

Kudos to Mark Fast for creating a climate of "body diversity"

French Vogue Chooses Black Model for March's Cover


Feb21

Model history has officially been made! French Vogue's March 2010 cover, on newsstands now, features its first solo Black model since Liya Kebede in 2002. The gorgeous cover girl is Rose Cordero, a Dominican newcomer who made a major splash during New York Fashion Week (we're obsessed with her almond-shaped eyes and chic, short natural 'do). Whether French Vogue chose Cordero in order to make up for last year's blackface scandal, or to salute one of fashion's fiercest new faces, we don't know--and, honestly, we don't care. This cover is beyond. Congrats, Rose!

Jourdan Dunn's Comeback at London Fashion Week


Feb21

Two months after giving birth to a baby boy, Brit supermodel Jourdan Dunn returned to the runway at London Fashion Week, which started on Friday. A little over eight weeks might not seem like enough time for a supermodel to get back into catwalk-ready shape, but if anyone can pull it off, it's Dunn (remember, this is the woman who gave one of the fiercest struts of her career on Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring 2010 runway...while seven months pregnant!). Jourdan, we salute you and your unimaginably svelte post-baby bod. You betta work.

She looks fabulous.....not much of a stretch, she is gorgeous after all!

Style Icon: Iris Apfel

This eighty-six year old lady is the epitome of style. She wears big, bold jewelry and beautiful ornate clothing. So popular is she, that a book was written about her titled: THE IRREVERENT IRIS APFEL: RARE BIRD OF FASHION. The book contains clothing and jewelry that is absolutely breathtaking. I like the fact that she has and revels in her "individual style". She does not follow the "fashion path"....she has created her own.

Gracious Beauty Audrey Hepburn

I think that she will always be remembered most for her role in Breakfast At Tiffany's, but from what I have read about her, she was a beautiful person inside and out. Here is a quote that was spoken by her that I think sums up the type of person that she was...."never let yourself grow up believing that anybody if different from anybody else.....love each other and do what you can for your neighbor".
