  • Behind the Scenes at Alexander McQueen- The Beauty, the Splender, the Drama

    mcqueen

     “I was thinking about a woman as an object of desire. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them. This is a collection about excess – an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme.” – Sarah Burton, Creative Director of Alexander McQueen How often do we have the rare chance to be mesmerized by the beauty and intimacy of a collection so magical? Sit back and […]

  • London Fashion Visits NY- The Best of London S/S 2012 at The London Show Rooms

    Holly Fulton

    Naveed and I popped by The London Show Rooms in New York last week to take a close-up and intimate look at some of London’s brightest designers. As always, we were mesmerized with the up close privilege of ogling at some incredible construction, innovative design, and left with a wish list days long from the generous talent of these young designers from “across the pond.”   I guessed right on wanting to see  Cate Blanchette wear Felicity Brown, as, ironically, she’s […]

    Juliens Auctions Lot 1404 MADAME FIGARO MAGAZINE FEATURING LADY GAGA (4)

        Must admit that Lady Gaga looks rather chic in this geometric design by Irina Shaposhnikova from her  ‘Crystallographica’ collection at Royal Academy at Fine Art in Antwerp (see it here). Lady Gaga wore the dress on a photo shoot and cover for the French Madame Figaro magazine… there you go, some French chic styling input to tone her down and class her up. The Lady Gaga dress is part of the Icons & Idols rock ‘n roll and sports auction […]

  • Lisette Model ‘Reflections’

    Artist Lisette Model

    On a recent trawl through Chelsea, New York’s art gallery packed westside neighborhood, came the discovery of Bruce Silverstein Gallery’s “Reflections: The Expressionist Origins of Lisette Model,” an inspiring visual retrospective featuring an edited collection of the late artist’s work. Model’s use of reflective layers to combine cityscapes and civilians candidly shuffling about through New York City during the 40’s offers a romantic, nostalgia inducing and even slightly haunting look at the city that also sheds light on the work of some […]

  • Bette Midler Auction- Costumes and Possessions from the Divine Miss M

    Bette Midler Auction

    You could probably clue in that I wasn’t a generic kind of kid when I had to reach to “someone” I admired for a school project and that someone was Bette Midler… fresh out of her bath house days and immersed in campy chutzpah. Honestly, I think my mom was more impressed at the time that a large 9×12 envelope from Ms. Midler’s agent/manager arrived in the mail addressed to me with clips and autographed photos of her Divineness…. my mom […]

  • Fashion Meets Interiors- Martin Margiela designs La Maison des Champs Elysees Hotel in Paris

    La Maison des Champs Elysees Hotel by Martin Margiela

    There’s no secret around here at FoS that I’m a huge Martin Margiela fan. There’s a minimalistic, yet futuristic simplicity of perfectly pared down, yet well-designed pieces that are always timeless, yet still maintain an avant-garde edge. So when a favorite label fashion expands it’s aesthetic to interiors, like Rick Owens or Jean Paul Gaultier, I’m sold… well, more so if that winged back chair was perched in my living room. Let Richard Nahem take you on a tour of […]

  • Kate Middleton wears a rather bare dress for her and it looks amazing

    Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge Attends 'In Kind Direct' Charity Event At Clarence House

    p.s.. It’s not from this season! It’s a First Lady and Royal day here at Fos today. I have to say that we’ve kept our pledge of only covering the looks that we feel are worth the second notice and offer something that YOU can take away. Kate Middleton stepped out for her first solo engagement as a royal yesterday and the blogosphere was aflutter about a perceived mark that was thought to be that of hair extensions. Instead, according to […]

  • Celebrity Style Bust- Rihanna, the girl of too many things but one good Givenchy Antigona bag

    Celebrity Sightings In Paris - October 22, 2011

    I’ll Have What She’s Having (from the waist up): Rihanna manages to ruin a few very good pieces with some dang tacky tights and a girdle for a dress. There, I said it! Rihanna was sporting some super chic fashion elements on her 3AM return to her hotel after her concert in Paris. There’s the well-proportioned floppy fedora (unlike that over-sized Kim Kardashian monstrosity), the covetable cropped jacket, and the to-die-for Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci “Antigona” bag… all in classic […]
