LADY GAGA WORE EVERYTHING AT THE VICTORIA’S SECRET FASHION SHOW

Fashion

 

Lady Gaga, who performed at tonight's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, is not one to be out-outfitted. Perhaps that's why she had the most outfit changes of all the participants of the show—including the models. Most models wore two looks on the runway, but Gaga wore three there, and two other entirely different looks off stage, for a grand total of five amazing costume changes. She then hit the pink carpet in an Alaïa lace dress:

On stage, Gaga wore a sequin jumpsuit with three variations. With sleeves:



Without sleeves:



And with a white leather jacket:

She also sang in a floral gown with her very own honorary Angel wings:

And ended it during the finale in her own Alaïa sheer lace crop top-pants set:

Lady Gaga's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show wardrobe was just as impressive as the models'. She wore five flashy looks, from classic VS lingerie to lace Alaïa numbers, but her most expensive ensemble was the one with her glittery black jumpsuit. You can blame the outfit's price on the hat alone—it cost one million dollars.

The custom headpiece—a black bejeweled iteration of her signature Joanne accessory—contains 45,700 Swarovski crystals that speckle the body of the hat and fall in 60 hand-beaded streamers.

Gladys Tamez Millinery collaborated with Swarovski to create the statement piece, which required a team of 10 craftspeople and took over 300 hours to make, according to WWD.

That wasn't Gaga's first time wearing something from the millinery, either. Last month, she wore a white wide-brim style by the label to the American Music Awards, which matched her streamlined Brandon Maxwell suit.

Darlings! It’s the Victoria’s Secret “Fashion” Show! The craziest collection of women in feathers you’ll see all year! Or at least until the Miss Universe National Costumes!

This year, VS decided to go a more high-fashion route by firing all the models and just having international pop star and television actress Lady Gaga walk the runway over and over again until she dropped from exhaustion. Oh, and she had to sing the whole time too. Let’s see how long it takes Steffi to burst into tears from all the pressure!

This is somewhat shockingly tasteful. Except for the feather wings, of course. Could it be that Steffi’s going to use this occasion to wear tastefully standard gowns?

Of course not, darlings. There had to be some cray in there.

Those hat strings are both sad and silly at the same time.

We’re back to tasteful. Or as tasteful as Steffi’s gonna get tonight. A drag version of Sandy from Grease sounds just about right.

Meh. Whatever charms this outfit may possess, they kind of evaporate once we say the words “lace crop top” out loud. You cannot combine those three words in that order and expect a tastefully chic look.

On the other hand, we think we actually like this one. There’s a little too much side boob action, but there’s something a little elegant about it.

By the way, Steffi didn’t really replace all the models. Believe us, we’ll have PLENTY to say about their getups ASAP.

DESIGNER ALEJANDRA ALONSO ROJAS EVOLVES À MOI INTO A MORE SOPHISTICATED EPONYMOUS LINE

Fashion

Two years after launching her distinctive, youthful womenswear line À Moi,Alejandra Alonso Rojas has pushed reset on her business. In a calm and quiet hotel room at 11 Howard hotel on Wednesday, she walked press through three racks of soft, sleek separates and slip dresses in a steady palette of slate grey, off-whites and soft pinks. The À Moi collection that's in stores now will be its last. Come spring, Alonso Rojas's more elevated and mature eponymous line will hit stores for the first time. "We are presenting it as an evolution of the brand," said Alonso Rojas. "All the stores are very excited with the change into the namesake and I've always been the creative director so its not like completely [different]."

The designer explained that after À Moi's last presentation, she felt rushed to produce faster and pushed to add pre-season collections. "There was a lot of noise in the market... I just felt a little bit overwhelmed with everything that was going on and [thought], I need a moment to see which direction I really want to take." With the À Moi experience under her belt, she decided to pivot up. "I was ready for a more mature step into the namesake brand, to get into the designer floors of the department stores and speciality stores." 

How will the lines differ? Alejandra Alonso Rojas has a higher price point for an older (30s to 60s) customer who favors sophisticated versatility and luxurious basics over something more youthful and experimental. (À Moi's last collection was inspired by Bauhaus and featured geometric shapes and cutouts.) The eponymous line is for a woman who appreciates materials such as leathers and hand-painted fabrics, and embraces a "nonchalant aspect of dressing up."

The new line is also more personal: Alonso Rojas was inspired by her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. "I went to Spain and started digging into a lot of family albums." The influence manifests itself in the prints, color palette and even the subtle additions of bright red. "My mom and my grandma always wore red nails... I wanted to add that little touch," she says.

Trina Turk Spring/Summer 2017 Collection – NYFW

Fashion

If there’s one thing I particularly love about the New York Fashion Week, that’s the fact that its runway shows feel like an extension of summer. Whenever it comes to a Trina Turkcollection, such feelings get always amplified. For the next warmer seasons, the Trina Turk spring/summer 2017 collection takes us on vacation to the Caribbean, surprising us with a blast of cheerful colors, jocose patterns and fresh, dynamic cuts and lines.

Trina Turk Spring/ Summer 2017 Collection - NYFW

Specifically inspired by Cuba, the references and cultural reminiscences of which played a huge role throughout the NYFW 2016 collections too, this Trina Turk spring/summer 2017 line-up is femininity at its purest, with even the signature Cuban pinstripe suits being revisited and translated to a more delicate and bon-ton style. Trina Turk’s trip to Cuba is, however, not just about art and design.

Trina Turk’s journey to Cuba is, in fact, a meticulous one discovering the Cuban roots, as she deeply searched for the island’s contrasting spirits, different approaches to life and historical souls, before applying them to her proposals. As a result, she managed to perfectly transpose the Cuban architecture, nightlife, society and cultural differences to fashion, applying each one of these motifs to equally intriguing and intricate graphic patterns.

When not focusing on prints, Trina Turk opted for lace embroideries, zigzagged hems and slightly gauzy fabrics, the contemporary outcomes of which embody Cuba’s new modernist era.

While Cuba’s most notorious ice cream parlor chain, Coppelia, served as an inspiration for this Trina Turk SS 2017 collection’s color palette and rainbow swirl prints, Havana’s nightlife helped Trina Turk recreate a sort of ‘dancing queens’ night out’ motif, enhanced here by fringed jumpsuits and oversized frilled detailing.

Trina Turk Spring/ Summer 2017 Collection - NYFW

To better recreate the Cuban daily life, Trina drew inspiration from both the touristic and native sides of the archipelago. While peplum long-sleeved shirts, body-cons, floor-length frocks remind us of the most glamorous side of Cuba, cargo jackets, denim pieces and hats quickly wake us up to the Cuban reality. One of the collection’s items, a short-sleeved denim jacket was for this reason specifically inspired by this reality, and took Trina Turk to further analyze the Cuban society’s obsession with aesthetics, too.

“The women were wearing what appeared to be these little olive-drab uniforms that looked like they were from the ’70s, but in a really good way. They were made of this really heavy cotton twill and were kind of fitted, with flared pants and long collars. I thought they were great,” she explained backstage.

As much as Cuba’s traditional and colonial architectures mirror its political and social history, this Trina Turk collection is a reflection of Cuba’s diverse artistic movements, with more traditional layered mini dresses creating an appealing contrast with the collection’s casual-chic sweatshirts and ultra modern jackets with tactical cut-outs at the shoulders.

Refined in every single detail, this Trina Turk SS 2017 collection aims at providing us with something aesthetically pleasing to look at, as beauty and perfection may be regarded as one of Cuba’s intrinsic values.

“But the thing is, people there really care about how they look. Color is really important to them,” she concluded, making us hope for more introspective fashion journeys in the days to come!
