Hungry For Fashion: There’s fast food, but there’s also “fashfood”.


FOR COLORED GIRLS: If you have a problem with Michelle Obama then you have a problem with the fact that the First Lady is black—it’s that simple. Yes, she wore [Alexander] McQueen. So, what? Nobody had anything to say when our dear sainted Jackie O was donning Oleg Cassini, Paco Robanne and Valentino. Keep it up, Michelle!

P.S. - You know she is prime and ready for a hair-care/beauty ad contract when the this First Lady gig is finished.

Mad Hatters: Hats off on to the menswear designers who have incorporated a collection of headpieces into their collections for Fall/Winter 2011-12. I would be rich for every hat I’ve seen on the runways in Milan and Paris Men’s Fashion Week.

To Russia With Love: Alexander McQueen’s Fall/Winter 2011-12 menswear collection was an ode to Russia. Statuesque male models in militant fashions marched through a mazed runway which seemed to evoke an essence of an old Soviet Union. With every fashion designer and their mother courting China as a new consumerist superpower, it’s not a bad idea to do the same with Russia. Moscow—Russia’s capital city—has the second largest population of billionaires in the world after New York City. Money talks at the end of the day (even if it doesn’t have lips).

Excuse my French—But, Cathy Horyn, I f***ing love you! On point like a ballerina on her tippy-toes. Click here for Eric Wilson’s key fashion moments for 2010.

"The fashion industry in 2010 was rocked by everything from untimely deaths to unlikely unionization efforts. Money, sexual harassment, suicide, and shocking resignations: here’s what changed fashion this year.”  — Jenna Sauers

Salma Hayek, V Espana – Winter 2010-11

Selma looks SICK
, and not in an ill sort of way, on the cover of the latest issue of Spanish V. (But, even ill could mean she looks fabulous in some circles).

Regardless of slang terms, she is looking fierce sporting Alexander McQueen’s latest. But, what would you expect from the wife of Francois-Henri Pinault (CEO of PPR), whose company owns a stake in McQueen’s brand? 

Alexander McQueen Tan Ship Crested Leather Boots

Alexander McQueen - God bless his soul! - understood the importance of details. His men’s nautical-themedtan ship crested-leather boots are perfectly fit for a captain. Clearly, there’s no man overboard when wearing these beauties.

Romantic, avant-garde, dark, imaginative, daring, sublime—these are some of the words that come to mind when thinking of the late, great designer Alexander McQueen, and they are also some of the themes that will be explored in the upcoming exhibition “Alexander…

Green Day, Spring 2010

Green is the color of the day because it’s St. Patrick’s Day, another excuse for alcoholics to drink their brains out. Despite a shortage of this color on the runways this season, some designers felt lucky enough to show it in their collections. However, be careful how you wear it because resembling a leprechaun has never been flattering.

Alexander McQueen, Fall 2010

Yesterday, Alexander McQueen’s fall 2010 collection debuted in Paris to an intimate gathering of press and fashion insiders. A limited lineup of sixteen looks, reminiscent of the Medieval era, displayed McQueen’s attention to detail and avant-garde sensibility.

According to the press, his business will resume despite the occurrence of his untimely death. It’s going to be interesting to see what direction his label will go in now that he’s no longer around. Hopefully, his design team will move forward and create mind-boggling, innovate collections that stay true to his spirit.

RIP Alexander McQueen.

I have never met Alexander McQueen, but today’s New York Times article about his death made me a little emotional. Normally, I am not the type who is very sensitive over celebrities and notables whom I have never met, but this time I was.

Growing up, I studied Alexander McQueen’s career, watching all of his amazing fashion shows on television. I was truly amazed at how he was such a creative genius and how he pushed the envelope. No one did what he did. He was a small part of the reason of why I moved to New York to pursue my career in fashion, because he made it look so exciting. I literally looked forward to seeing his elaborate shows every season and I cannot say that about many designers, because they’ve never pushed the boundaries like McQueen. So many designers look to the past for inspiration, and I am sure he did as well, but it seemed like his direction was the future.
