Franca Sozzani was the editor of Vogue Italia from 1988 up until her tragic death in 2016. Her work was considered controversial and she received constant backlash from critics about her Vogue Italia covers. Unfazed by the critics, she continued to create the most talked about magazine issues.
With summer coming to an end, fashion lovers around the world prepare to hit the streets of New York for another iconic and exciting week of fashion, better known as New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Between the months of September and February, New York City hosts the first of four major fashion events, including Paris, London, and Milan to follow. New York, and Bryant Park and the Lincoln Center in particular, will be full of both new and seasoned designers, models, and fashion influencers like Vogue’s Anna Wintour. As well as tons of press, buyers, and, of course, a handful of trend-setting celebrities who are lucky enough to score front row seats and the opportunity to claim any Spring 2020 runway stunners, this show is open to the public and kicks off Friday, September 6, with designs and “performances” from Telfar. Closing, once again, with Marc Jacobs on September 11, these American designers are sure to set the standard for the newly shortened schedule that will showcase the world's most talented and creative fashionistas and all the things you need to know about New York Fashion Week.
When it comes to a character on a TV show or movie, there are many ways they express to us who they are. Obvious ways being dialogue, actions, and who they surround themselves with, but my favorite as someone who loves fashion is the way the characters dress. Clothing is a key component of world building and character building, whether the character only wears hoodies or plaid skirts. Of course, as someone who is attracted to a certain aesthetic, the characters with the best clothing are usually women for me who don't just shop at Forever 21. To me, the TV shows that I find have the best dressed female characters are the ones that don't realistically dress their characters. Meaning, in the show, the girl who lives in a middle-class household doesn't dress like she has money, but a stylist who dresses her every morning. As a TV fanatic, I've compiled a list of the best dressed females on the screen who will surely give you outfit inspiration or ideas to make a Pinterest board.
Over the years, I have watched the Showtime series The Tudors many, many times. I have learned one thing while watching the series for many times, and that is that the fans of this show and of history have paid very close attention to the costuming. Some love it, some hate it, and some are neutral. What many people do not realize about a show, a movie, or play, is that just like the script and scenery, the costumes designed are just as important in telling a story. This is the start of a series of posts about how I interpret the costumes story telling of each of Henry VIII's wives from the show The Tudors.
CAOS (or, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) is the latest interpretation of the classic Archie comic. It's been renewed for another season, so this wardrobe will be relevant way past Halloween.
Alright, this list is obviously based on my own subjective taste. Most of the outfits that celebrities wear are not even chosen by them, themselves. So I honestly do not understand why celebrities get roasted for wearing something that is perhaps too outside of the box. My intention is not to shade anyone, or make it personal. I do not know the celebrities or the designers who made these ensembles. I simply love clothes, and here are my humble two cents on who looked amazing at the Met. My tastes run in pieces that are loud but classy, not just loud. And I do not mean classy from a conservative stance. The best way I can differentiate it is that I prefer the fantasy over a whole festival. I hope that makes sense. And at the end of the day, to each their own. It is truly not the end of the world if our tastes in clothes are not the same. And yes I am quite aware of the theme—which left much to be desired.

Out with the polka dots and stripes and in with the spirals. When I say horror manga, the first name that should pop into your head is Junji Ito. The first time I read one of his works (Enigma of Amigara Fault), I was immediately hooked and my love for horror sparked.
You don't have to be Gisele to appreciate the art of fashion; and yes, you read the correctly—fashion is a form of art.

There are certain television shows that just stick out in your mind when it comes to fashion. These fashionable TV shows have started trends, killed them, and started conversations about what fashion is and should be. Many have even been off the air for years and we still look back to them for inspiration and style advice. When fashion makes a statement, especially on TV, it tends to stick.
