Jean-Paul Gaultier Wants to Take Us to Space Jean-Paul Gaultier Wants to Take Us to Space

Haute Couture Fashion Week—it’s happening! Most of it—save for Herr Lagerfeld’s clothes for a merry widow and Alexandre Vauthier’s Grace Jones homage—is boring.

Grace Jones Is an Eternal Muse at Alexandre Vauthier Couture Grace Jones Is an Eternal Muse at Alexandre Vauthier Couture

Couture shows are going down in Paree right now and so far, with a couple of exceptions—Iris!!! The Only Good Designer—they’re mostly a snooze of finery and chiffon (albeit, you know, couture-crafted).

The BBC's Titular ‘Les Misérables’ Will Be Dominic West, David Oyelowo, and Lily Collins  The BBC's Titular ‘Les Misérables’ Will Be Dominic West, David Oyelowo, and Lily Collins 

Victor Hugo’s sprawling novel Les Misérables is getting another adaptation—this time not as a big-budget musical, but rather a BBC miniseries that will broaden my costume drama choices because honestly, I can only watch so much Bleak House and don’t even get me started on the number of times I’ve seen North and South.

You Could Do Way Worse Than Dress Like Jacquemus's Mom You Could Do Way Worse Than Dress Like Jacquemus's Mom

The extremely cool French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus toned down the wacky design elements of his namesake label to create a faintingly chic collection inspired by, and devoted to, his mother, who died when he was young.

Rihanna Celebrates Teen Delinquency for Fenty x Puma's Latest Collection Rihanna Celebrates Teen Delinquency for Fenty x Puma's Latest Collection

Monday in Paris, Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma line paraded under the moniker “F.U.”—Fenty University—and its attitude was purely that: rugby separates in ragamuffin cuts that were meant to recall the grunge-era kids who got sent to the “alternative” high school for being teen pregnant or smoking too much weed. (Maybe that…

The skewed headgear presented at Ann Demeulemeester in Paris today were more than the sum of their parts, which evoked birds in a flurry, ghosts in mid-haunt, brides interrupted, the dark underbelly of paintings by Vermeer. Paired with loose, bold separates in silk and leather, emphasized with above-the-elbow gloves,…

Chanel's Diamond-Bright Gowns & Sensible Suits at Paris Couture Week Chanel's Diamond-Bright Gowns & Sensible Suits at Paris Couture Week

I spent about 36 seconds of the Women’s March over the weekend thinking about Karl Lagerfeld’s weak attempt at staging a feminist fashion march on his Spring 2015 runway, and wondered if he was watching, participating, or gave a fuck.
