De la Renta had been battling Cancer since 2006.

During his long career, Mr. de la Renta was among the few designers who knew the difference between the runway and fashion.

“Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion,” Mr. de la Renta once said. “A runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.”

By Dorothy Frazier

 

Katie Holmes has made our Celebrity Picture of the Day, a good girl — gone bad! The doting mother of 8 year old Suri Cruise got tatted up while attending Joe Zee’s fashion soirée on Thursday. The party was in honor of New York Fashion Week, which started on Wednesday and runs for eight days.

Luckily for The Dawson’s Creeks Actress, the tat is only temporary.

Temporary tattoos aka FLASH have become a trendy accessory, typically lasting about 4-6 days. Holmes put a temp tatt on the nape of her neck and added another to her left forearm.

The diva just recently moved to Los Angeles after spending years living in Manhattan, immediately following her divorce from Tom Cruise in 2012. Katie and Suri had been living in a lavish three-bedroom rental apartment in upscale Chelsea.

Despite it all, I am happy to report the 35-year-old does have a bit of a rebellious streak. Thank the lord for event sponsors like Old Navy!! Definitely getting me in the mood for fun and fashion — and Katie, well…she made my day!

Love it!

Eve shared pics of the festivities with her fans on Instagram.

“Best night ever!!! #THEMRS #friends #family #love,” she wrote.

“We are beyond happy to celebrate our marriage with all of our friends and family and start our journey in our new life together,” the couple told UsMagazine in a statement. “It’s been such an amazing experience and we are happier than we ever thought we could be. Thanks for the well wishes.”

The newlyweds reportedly chose Ibiza for their wedding location because it was where this year’s Gumball 3000 car race ended.

The duo had been dating for more than three years, announcing their engagement last year on Christmas Day.

This is the first marriage for Eve and the second for Cooper. He has four children with an ex wife.

Notably, the announcement of their marriage has gotten mixed reviews…of sorts and according to Motivational Speaker Farrah Gray,”Black Men are OUTRAGED over Eve marrying Cooper.

Outraged huh? Interesting tidbit.

CELEBRITY ENGAGEMENTSSee who’s off the market in Hollywood

Well, according to HipHopWired.com, this outrage of sorts may be due to the rapper being a bit, “hood” or as some say, “ghetto fabulous” back in the day… and we can’t forget the ‘paw print’ tattoos scrolling down her breast plate. Doesn’t get more hood than that! [Ijs]

The hip hop outlet also notes — they polled close to 5,000 people and 50 percent agreed that a black woman marrying a white man bothers men.

Effy JewelersFarrah Gray so eloquently writes:

“Black men from all over the world have taken to social media to call Eve a Sellout! Have We Moved Beyond Race?”

Wow, I highly doubt the majority of black men feel that way considering in this day and age black women, white men couples are as prevalent as black men with white women. This is evident in cities such as Chicago, New York, Atlanta and Detroit — which according to interracial dating metrics, has a noticeable increase in the number of mixed race couples.

Different individuals have different reasons for dating across racial lines. For some its love, others attraction and for others they just happened to find the right person. We however have those who prefer being in interracial relationships for example, O.J. Simpson’s preference in white women is clear, Hale Berry has hers in white men, and of course there is Whoopi Goldberg who time and again dates white men.

Interracial relationships definitely seems to be the trend.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Fashion » The New Guard: Alaska Fashion Week

 

(EOTM! News) – Have you heard the whispers or read some of the mainstream fashion buzz coming by way of the north pole? Recall catching glimpses of TV or radio ads across the airwaves promising something anew… in a city most famous for its rugged beauty, oil, gold and wild Alaskan salmon? Maybe you seen a few top model types, street style photographers, reporters, celebrities and fashionistas in Anchorage the past couple years around the spring/summer months and wondered… whatever could they be up to…?

Well my dears, we affectionately call this phenomenon, a changing of the fashion guard of sorts — Alaska Fashion Week (AFW) and a word to the wise, models donning Alaskan fur hats, snow boots, Eskimo coats and or parka’s are not what you will see sashaying down the runway. (IJS)

Top Fashion Capitals 2012 (source: Languagemonitor)

  • AFW set to claim a spot in 2014/2015, Fashion Lovers watch out now!

The Top Global Fashion Capital Rankings are listed below, in the format:  Position, City, Change from 2012.

  1. New York (+1) — The Big Apple is back on top of the fashion world by slipping past Paris by .5%.
  2. Paris (+2) – The Top Global Fashion Capital for Haute Couture is surprisingly strong in pret-a-porter, also.
  3. London (-2) – London has enjoyed a fabulous two-year run and is now secure in its place in the top echelon for global fashion.
  4. Los Angeles (+5) – Zut alors! Tinsel Town in the Top Four? The result of the melding of the Red Carpet, the Industry (film, of course), and West Coast cool.
  5. Barcelona (-2)  –  Espana, again, places two Fashion Capitals in the Top Fifteen.  Barcelona also wins the Top Fashion Capital for Swimwear. 
  6. Rome (0) — Rome may have Seven Hills but Italy now has Three Fashion Capitals (and Milan is No. 2).
  7. Berlin (+3)  – Berlin continues its steady rise moving deeper into the the elite ranks.
  8. Sydney (+7)  –  Sydney towers over OZ distancing (and distinguishing) itself, once again, from Melbourne.
  9. Antwerp (+2)  – Ah Antwerp, reverberations of the avant garde Antwerp Six continues into the 21st century.
  10. Shanghai (+12) –  As China further emerges onto the world stage, Shanghai leads the fashion charge.
  11. Tokyo (+9) – Tokyo made a leap in 2013 that many consider long overdue.
  12. Milano (-4)  –  Milan was the Top Global Fashion Capital back in 2009 and remains a strong contender for the top spot year-after-year.

  15. Sao Paulo (-8)  – Again, the Queen of Latin American Fashion Capitals.
  16. St. Petersburg (+35)  –  Russian comes into 2014 with two Fashion Capitals in the Top Twenty, with Petrograd surprising  Moscow.

Prior to London’s two year reign, New York had reclaimed the crown from Milan.  Previous to this, New York had been the top fashion capital for five years running, taking the crown from Paris.

About Alaska Fashion Week

The idea of creating AFW was in the mind of the founders as they would say, “for awhile.” In 2012, after a crucial article from the Travel Leisure Magazine, calling Alaska the worst dressed in United States” the group decided to work on AFW to change that statement. Their first year was in 2013 and now AFW is quickly becoming a fashion event to be reckoned with. — Visit www.alaskafashionweek.com for more information and to purchase tickets.
