January 12, 2013 WHEN YOU ROCK AND ROLL WITH ME… THERE’S NOONE ELSE I’D RATHER BE
You can’t mention fashion and rock and roll in the same sentence without David Bowie’s presence chilling your core. And, no better time than this week when David dropped on us his new song and video for “WHERE ARE WE NOW” Take note. THIS is how you do it. And by “it” I mean everything.
November 19, 2012 I wanna be an Antonio Girl
I can’t believe NY fashion week was almost 2 MONTHS ago, and what a treat it was for me to accompany Roxanne Lowit and Susan Baraz to the opening of “Antonio’s World”. The Suzanne Geiss gallery was transformed into a an Antonio Lopez land of fashion illustrations and Polaroids just scratching the surface of his prolific body of work. His influence is still strong and his talent has yet to be rivaled.
You can’t help but notice the strong hold he still has on fashion today as models such as Lara Stone are bleached/dyed and posed to look just like an Antonio girl!
Don’t forget to notice the letter from Karl Lagerfeld!
September 5, 2012 Another NYFW has me bloggin’ again
Well, it’s surely no shock to anyone who reads the LP blog ( hi Mom) that I preeeeetttyyyy much only blog during NYFW. How lame.
But, that being said, another fashion week is upon us and I am in flight bored out of my skull ready to (as many of the bored do) tackle social media.
So, follow me on twitter @alibibarone if you want to see backstage photos and 1st looks from my favorite designers. Also prepare for my dry commentary regarding the rude, affected, and ridiculous.
March 18, 2012 Georgina Chapman… MVP
I am just going to go ahead and say it… Georgina Chapman (designer of Marchesa and wife of Harvey Weinstein) is officially my girl crush! I assisted Roxanne Lowit on a photo story chronicling her moves before and day of the 2012 Oscars. I watched as she elegantly fit Stacy Keibler in her Marchesa gown. She was gracious and gorgeous. Well spoken and polite. On day 2 I steamed her Amaze-balls dress and helped her pick which clutch to wear for the carpet. She captivates the room so quietly. So this is my gushing love letter to my new hero. Do you see what I see?
March 7, 2012 L.A.M.B
We arrived so early to the L.A.M.B presentation we actually spent more time hanging out BEFORE the start than for the actual main event!! It was that 1960′s feel we all know so well. Models wore a bump (nearly a bee-hive) and posed before a collage of Twiggy and Edie clad images reminiscent of Worhol’s hayday. SNORE. Don’t get me wrong… I LOVE those images. The inspiration is unarguable ,but, this was SO phoned in. Gwen didn’t even show up. The 3rd model came out before the music even started. VERY unprofessional. We left before the 6th look.
But dont Roxanne and I look CUTE!!
March 6, 2012 My new obsession.. Giulietta
Before I left LA to NYC someone asked me “What shows are you most looking forward to seeing at NYFW?” my response was visceral it flowed from me almost without thought… “The one I don’t know about yet. The new designer I have never heard of who surprises me with some wow.”
Giulietta delivered! Sofia Sizzi only debuted this collection 1 year ago, and already I will name her the one to watch.
The collection inspired by the Visconti film The Leopard, staring our FAVORITE handsome and strapping 1960′s crush Alain Delon, is feminine with a genius color palate of browns, corals, grays, and breezy light blues.
Backstage the designer told me “this collection is special” – I agree, Sofia.
My shitty blackberry photos do not do it justice.. please go to style.com to really enjoy.
March 5, 2012 Alexander Wang was the HOT TIX.
Fashion’s darling Alexander Wang’s F12 collection said “shut up” without uttering a word.
Many of the girls wore mesh turtle necks pulled up over their mouths…. LOVE!!!!
And for his big wow moment he brought back the super models of yesteryear Shalom Harlow and of today Mrs Tom Brady (pictured below).
March 4, 2012 VPL .. client we LOVE
March 3, 2012 ALI BARONE … YOU BAD GIRL
September since I last posted? For SHAME!! Life has been so overwhelmingly busy I have not found the energy to post. My dear friend Jane Reardon says :” I live my life.. I don’t post it” Words I have been living by.
So, the question is.. do I fill in the blank past 6 months of living with a post or start fresh with today. Fashion has the attention span of a goldfish so the fear of posting what is no longer fresh is a big no-no. But hell- I have based my entire life on no-no’s so- I shall post whatever the F I feel like. ha.
NYFW F12 was the most thrilling for me yet. It started with Rag and Bone and ended with Chris Benz. And, in that meaty sandwich – Alexander Wang, Zac Posen, DVF, VPL, and my new obsession Giulietta!! (more about this one later)
Here is a shot of me backstage at L.A.M.B photo by Roxanne Lowit
