Mopeds, Deskside Glam, and a Front Row Seat: Go BTS at Milan Fashion Week with Vogue’s Francesca Ragazzi!
The runways at Milan Fashion Week brought us viral cameo appearances (thank you Kate Moss and Paris Hilton!) and dizzyingly chic designer debuts–don’t miss our exclusive studio visit with Bally’s new creative director Rhuigi Villasenõr!–but what went down off the catwalk?. We enlisted Vogue Italia’s...
Today in Paris, Emily Ratajkowski stepped out in a Canadian tuxedo of dramatic proportions. Worn to the Loewe spring 23 show, the model’s statement-making baggy jeans pooled around her feet. Her jacket was tied in the front—forget about the buttons—to give the effect of a plunging neckline. Sure, Ratajkowski has never been one to shy away from a bold look, but this one remixes a rather staid classic.
There are plenty of contentious footwear combinations out in the world—tights with open-toe heels, socks and sandals—and Bella Hadid has managed to nail one of the most controversial. Today in Paris, the model stepped out in a square-toe heel with flared denim jeans. The look is ’00s to the core, a staple in the era’s rom coms, music videos, and on the more casual red carpets.
“I’m gonna cry,” Bretman Rock said upon seeing his glam for the Balmain spring 2023 show for the first time. But be sure that any tears the social media sensation shed were those of joy. Rock was tapped to host the brand’s pre-show TikTok live, giving fans a look into the backstage magic that goes into producing a show as big as Balmain Fest, which comprised couture, womenswear, and menswear collections. “The most challenging part of hosting the live show was that there were so many busy, moving parts taking place behind the scenes, and I had to just roll with the punches,” Rock says. “But it was honestly so fun to just lean into the chaos. I really got to show the full backstage experience, and the realness of the prep work that goes into the final show.”

Every so often, a new It-bag enters the realm of celebrity. Today, Dua Lipa sported the current must-have carryall: Luar’s “Ana”. The piece, created by Raul Lopez, came in a shocking highlighter green leather in a python print. It was a pop of killer contrast against Lipa’s white coat–also by Luar–and a pair of black Balenciaga pantaboots. While the bag itself is not yet released (it’s from the spring 2023 collection) fans can expect that it will be priced at $265, as the other Luar bags are.
How to subvert the classic feline flick? Follow makeup artist Peter Philips’s lead at Dior’s spring 2023 show, where a smoldering stare was given an artisanal upgrade. While eyeliner was ringed across the upper and lower lash lines, it met in the inner corners in a subtle, but striking cross formation, which Philips described as “symbolic.”
Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant are the brains behind the ultra-modern Parisian label Coperni. For the brand’s spring/summer 2023 collection, the design duo – who tied the knot on a secluded Greek island last year – pushed the boundaries of fashion technology even further. “It’s our celebration of women’s silhouettes from centuries past,” Vaillant says in a preview over Zoom ahead of the show. “And we wanted to update our aesthetic in a more grown-up and scientific way, too,” adds Meyer.
Thankfully, the days of one or two Black models being the fashion industry’s It girls are gone. There are a growing number of marquee names walking down the runways: Adut Akech, Duckie Thot, Precious Lee, and many others. Sadly, this was not always the case. How did the Black model finally get embraced, and celebrated, by fashion brands and publications?

“I’m not a chef, but I’m a good cook,” musician John Legend tells his wife, TV personality Chrissy Teigen, as the two dig into a sumptuous meal featuring—among other things—corn and French fries with their kids, six-year-old Luna and four-year-old Miles. (The verdict from Luna? “It’s a little spicy.”) The multitalented Legend is getting ready to release his eighth studio album, Legend, but at home, it’s clear that he’s Dad before anything else.
The makeup artists at Milan Fashion Week brought us purple smoky eyes, elaborate feline flicks and, at Prada, some frankly impractical lashes. In Paris—and specifically at Isabel Marant’s spring 2023 show, the mood could not have been more different. Models practically skipped down the runway—“Don’t look like robotic models that are not alive!” the designer told her cast backstage ahead of the show – with sparkling eyes, super-clean hair, and faces that looked freshly scrubbed.
Dressed in a gilded Atelier Versace gown dripping with chandelier beads, Amal Clooney joined her husband George Clooney at the inaugural Albie Awards—a new event established by the couple and the Clooney Foundation to honor “global justice defenders [journalists, human rights leaders] who are at great risk for what they do”—in New York on Thursday night.
‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ Will Be The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Spring 2023 Costume Institute Exhibition
Karl Lagerfeld was a regular attendee at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute, from the Seventh on Sale benefit in 1991 to “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” in 2011—and of course for the Chanel exhibition in 2005. And yet, says the Costume Institute’s Wendy Yu Curator in Charge, Andrew Bolton: “Karl never tired of telling me that fashion did not belong in a museum. When we worked on the Chanel show together, he was incredibly generous in what he lent, but he was completely disinterested in the exhibition itself! He would say, ‘Fashion is not art—fashion belongs on the street, on women’s bodies, on men’s bodies.’”

At this year’s New York City Ballet Fall Fashion Gala held at the David H. Koch Theater, Solange Knowles composed a vibrant and masterful original score for a never-before-seen ballet. The world premiere was choreographed by Gianna Reisen with costumes by designer Alejandro Gómez Palomo of Palomo Spain. Solange’s piece was one of three ballets that premiered at the Fall Fashion Gala, which is an event conceived by Sarah Jessica Parker 10 years ago in an attempt to foster greater collaboration between fashion designers, artists, and ballet. Solange’s artistic contribution to the evening—and the repertoire of NYCB—underlines exactly what the evening is all about. Solange’s piece, entitled Reisen, is about a 30-minute long score and filled with heavy brass and strings and marked her first-ever composition for the ballet.
It’s been quite the year for Lily James in the hair department. Not only did she experiment with platinum blonde (albeit via a wig) when she starred as Pamela Anderson in Hulu’s Pam & Tommy, but she also managed to pull off a dramatic jet black shade, complete with micro-fringe, for a Versace campaign. In between, she tried shades of caramel and chocolate brown, along with some sun-kissed balayage.
The name of Gwyneth Paltrow’s “boyfriend breakfast frittata” originated during her courtship with her now-husband, Brad Falchuk. “When we were dating, we started this tradition of me cooking him breakfast every Saturday morning,” she explains. “I would come up with all of these really creative breakfasts. It was something I put time into every week planning. I called them boyfriend breakfasts.” The recipes for this specific egg dish, which includes turkey bacon, potato, spinach, and onions caramelized in ghee, was one of their perennial favorites.
“We started off by being very inspired by music and the theatricality of performing on stage,” said Laura Mulleavy, explaining Rodarte’s spring collection on a recent Zoom call, sitting next to her sister Kate. Even if you hadn’t heard her say it, you’d only need to take a quick glance at the first look of the collection to get it: a model in a psychedelic swirled slip dress, her blue hair asymmetrically Aqua Net-ted to new heights. “We were really wanting to feel something that was really vibrant and alive and about lighting and connectivity,” said Mulleavy.

Stop the presses: Rihanna is playing the halftime show at the Super Bowl, and our collective performance anxiety is peaking. We have more unanswered questions than—I dunno, the sphinx? What will she sing? Her back catalog is plentiful and abundant, but what’ll make the final cut? “Umbrella,” for sure. The Calvin Harrises? The “wild, wild thoughts” one? Which of her former collaborators will do a star turn? Is Eminem even free on Super Bowl Sunday? What will she wear? How will she move? Will she be rusty?

Bottega Veneta is known for its high-profile following, ranging from Kendall Jenner to Rihanna. But a rather unexpected name took to the catwalk for the brand’s spring/summer 2023 show: the one and only Kate Moss. The supermodel wore a checked shirt, white tank top and loose-fitting jeans as part of creative director Matthieu Blazy’s sophomore collection.
