ICYMI: Five things we loved this week
Below are five pieces of online fashion content that we loved this week.
Coachella cuties: Refinery29 rounded up all of the most glamorous couples at Coachella. They range from young Hollywood it-couple Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson, dressed in their hippy finest, to couples who aren’t nearly as well-known, but just happen to be really, really photogenic (like models Juliana Herz and Travis Smith, below).
Red-carpet reality: Did you know that Charlize Theron was paid $200,000 just for wearing Chopard jewelry at the Oscars? With major jewelry, accessory and clothing labels willing to shell out big bucks for prime red-carpet placement, how’s a line with less resources supposed to compete? Fashionista covered a fascinating panel at the Savannah College of Art and Design about how smaller labels manage to get items on the red carpet, and the struggles that often get in the way of doing so.
Follow frenzy: If you’re not already following the 10 fashion-forward Instagram accounts we spotlighted in a post this week, you absolutely must. Two words: fashion dads.
Geek chic: Fashion girls will be clamouring to get their well-manicured hands on this cool new comic. Girl in Dior by Annie Goetzinger is a graphic novel chronicling Christian Dior’s rise to stardom through the eyes of fashion journalist turned model Clara. Based on the sample pages posted on The Cut, it’s full of witty dialogue and gorgeous illustrations of mid-century fashion. Definitely a must-read.
Fashion food: When you think about fashion’s “double C” label, you might not be thinking of Coca Cola, but apparently tiny purses shaped like Coke cans were the hottest thing at Seoul fashion week. And that’s just the tip of the foodie fashion iceberg! Style.com put together a collection of street style looks that will make your stomach rumble
