WEEKLY FASHION NEWS RECAP 1/17-1/24 VIVIENNE WESTWOOD+PORN STAR, GRACE STEPS DOWN, ZENDAYA'S A COVERGIRL AND ALEXANDER MCQUEEN BIOPIC
#FashionPorn: Last week JW Anderson live streamed his gender fluid fall/winter 2016 collection on the gay dating app Grindr and this week British designer and activist Vivienne Westwood- the one who brought on the punk rock movement with her legendary London boutique, Sex- has cast porn star Colby Keller in her Spring/Summer 2016 campaign entitled Mirror the World. The campaign which was shot around the alleys, canals and shipyards of Venice is meant to raise awareness of the problem of mass cruise ship tourism and climate change that is decaying the beautiful parts of the city. Keller, with his scruffy beard is photographed in high heels and fishnets among other fun things lol. There are more photos on her website but some are NSFW! None of the models are wearing the penis necklace she sent recently sent down the runway BTW...
Grace by Fire: Flame haired stylist Grace Coddington, Vogue magazine's creative director for over 25 years, is stepping down from the postion to take on other outside projects including developing a fragrance with Comme de Garcons. The 74 year old started a career in modeling at age 17, worked as a fashion editor for British Vogue in her 20's, did a brief stint working for Calvin Klein and then in 1988 was hired as creative director of American Vogue under editor in chief Anna Wintour. Coddington is known for her fantasy filled fashion stories and preference of models over celebrities, will still serve as creative director at large and will contribute to at least 4 fashion stories throughout the year. I love this round up of her some of her best editorials by dresstokillmagazine.com!
Easy Breezy Beautiful: Nineteen year old actress Zendaya is the new face of CoverGirl joining the diverse ranks of Rihanna, Gwen Stefani and Janelle Monae . The outspoken star took to her Instagram account and hinted at the partnership on Thursday and later followed up with a video officially announcing the move. Welp I can't wait for the cute AF tutorials!
Alexander the Great: The late avant garde designer Lee Alexander McQueen will be getting a biopic sometime next year! British director Andrew Haigh will be basing the story off of McQueen's 2015 biography 'Blood Beneath the Skin' written by Andrew Wilson. McQueen committed suicide in 2010, days after his own mother's death, had a legendary rise and fall fashion story... He grew up in the working class section of London before apprenticing on Savile Row and earning a degree at Central Saint Martins, from there he went on to design wardrobe for David Bowie's 1996-1997 tour and designed a few seasons for Givenchy before fully focusing on his own label and dramatic fashion shows. His personal life was openly tragic as he had an ongoing affair with drugs and bad failed relationships so I would love to see how they would approach this on screen while keeping his fashion houses's design legacy and integrity in tact.
