All I can say is that I wish I could run around the city in a ballgown and get paid for it
Selfridges in London has decided to offer some much deserved praise to British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood. And while I am often completely in awe by her a-symmetrical dresses and distressed coats, the area in which Westwood really shines — and the talent for which Selfridges is honoring her — is in the shoe department.
To celebrate Westwood’s exotic and often times over the top shoe designs, the department store has arranged an exhibit featuring almost 200 of her footwear creations. The exhibit, titled “Vivienne Westwood Shoes — an Exhibition 1973-2010,” spans the 30-plus year career of the designer whose shoes are anything but ordinary. Flats, kitten heels, 6-inch platforms — every shape, color, and pattern is used in her design portfolio.
Rachel Zoe, Brad, and Rodger spent last night’s episode of The Rachel Zoe Project at New York Fashion Week, which was surprisingly calm and surprisingly drama-free. Naturally, they would like you to think that this a wonderful by-product of Taylor Jacobson’s absence and while I’ll always have a place in my heart for Tay-Tay, I'm starting to believe them.
Rodger was there because his and Rachel’s wedding anniversary falls smack dab in the middle of Fashion Week, just like it has for the last 12 years, but god bless him for trying. As Rachel put it, “Most people got married in the summer. We got married in the winter.” And that, Rodger, is just the way the cookie crumbles.
The mood — and overall calm — of the episode was set by Oscar de la Renta’s show, which might be the most smoothly run, chaos free fashion show I've ever seen. When you’ve been in business — successful business — as long as Oscar has, it makes sense that they would have the whole show thing down pat.
