Perez Hilton Does Fashion … Again!

Posted by Sarah on October 8th, 2009

Perez Hilton,Lady GagaKristin Cavalleri and PerezGird your loins! … ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls!

Celebrity fashion blogging is the next arena of pop culture to be tackled by ubiquitous pop culture vulture, Perez Hilton. Known for attracting controversy as well as hits on his blog PerezHilton.com, Perez Hilton aka Mario LaVadeira, launched CoCoPerez.com in August to expand his “new media” empire.

While some in the blogosphere, such as thebudgetfashionista.com, bagsnobs.com and the original creators of coutorture.com have achieved a measure of cyberspace success by more palatable means, Perez has used the technique of “blog as lighting rod” in order to stir the pot and spring-board his online presence to mainstream media. His ventures include a record label with Warner Bros.( Perezcious Music) , a radio gossip show (Radio Perez), a short-lived VH-1 TV program (Perez Sez) and a clothing line for Hot Topic.  Perez’s efforts have certainly had successes and failures.  TV, radio, music and now back to the web. The question is, does lighting strike twice?  Can Perez emulate his own success in the blogosphere with quips, quotes and by skewering questionable taste?

Michael Jackson Clothing Line Previewed by Audigier

Posted by Sarah on August 18th, 2009

Previously, I wrote of Christian Audigier’s collaboration with Michael Jackson for the release of his  clothing line prior to the pop stars death. Audigier is pressing forward for the eventual launch of the clothing label. The Ed Hardy designer recently appeared  on the Today show giving a sneak peak at items from the fashion collection.   michael-jackson-christian-audigier-clothingThe clothing and accesssories in the line include rhinestone socks, a rhinestone glove, belts, T-shirts, jackets, gloves, and  umbrellas.

Audigier related that: “[Michael] said ‘I want to do a line, and I want to have you working on the merchandising.’ “He was very excited.” “What he wanted from me was the T-shirts and the hoodies and the caps.”  He also stated that Michael Jackson was very much involved in the design of the fashion line.  Audigier is now working with Jackson’s estate to complete the project.

Michael Jackson Planned Clothing Line

Posted by Sarah on July 11th, 2009

Millions of fans the world over mourned the passing of modern legend, Michael Jackson. A brilliant entertainer, nonetheless, he was plagued by troubles. Many creative people often struggle with pressure from without and conflicts from within. Often that creativity leads to the art, music and literature that we may be fortunate enough to enjoy. A creative endeavor which he did not get to complete was the launch of his own fashion collection with French designer Christian Audigier. In June before  Jackson’s death, the Ed Hardy designer was enthusiastic about the project, telling PEOPLE that “It’s the merging of the King of Pop with the king of fashion. Something explosive is going to happen.”

A fashion line seemed like a logical step for Jackson to take. Michael Jackson always designed with the costumers for his performances. The pop icon favored Swarovski crystals, a military look and “over the top” designs to enhance his onstage presence.  Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush discussed working with Jackson for costumes for the “This Is It” tour, in this People article.  Bush said,  “Working with Michael for 25 years we had never seen his creativity at this level…”.

Audigier, who also designed tour outfits for Jackson, describes the planned fashion collection: “It was based on various types of merchandising on different products, also accessories. What he wanted from me was the T-shirts and the hoodies and the caps. And it was very kind of royalist – kind of a mix of the real Michael Jackson and his alter-ego as the King of Pop.”

This collection may be available in the future. “I’m still hoping to launch the label as a tribute to Michael,” Audigier said at the launch of his  Champagne and wine collection recently. ‘We went through designs quite often. I showed him what I thought would suit him and he would say “Yes, I like that” or “No”.

However, a separate venture is being launched – a 300 piece collection that Michael Jackson had a hand in designing,  in connection with the “This Is It” tour.  Universal Music Group’s merchandise division, Bravado along  with concert promoter AEG Live will offer the collection which is comprised of clothing such as T-shirts, hoodies and other merchandise such as sleep masks, belt buckles, socks and even jigsaw puzzles and children’s games.

Resort Wear Inspired Spring/Summer Fashion

Posted by Sarah on April 16th, 2014

When the weather starts warming as it is now, we may dream of some tropical get-a-way. For those of us fortunate enough to get a one or two week vacation it means supplementing our Spring and Summer wardrobe. Or even as was the case  for me this Spring break, where circumstances meant a stay-cation, at least that means more in the budget for Spring/Summer essentials. Yes, even if the only palm you will be lounging near is the potted palm tree palm_tree_islandon the patio, a quick fashion pick-me-up can be well within the budget.

…As long as I am reveling in Mittyesque day dreams of some tropical locale, why not take a fashion inspiration from those who could own  a private tropical island.  Designers of resort wear, (or cruise wear), once upon a time solely catered to the wealthy. This elite group would “winter” in warmer locations or perhaps take a winter cruise on the Mediterranean or Caribbean seas.   This inter-season clothing was designed to be easily portable and lightweight and included warm weather casual looks as well as evening wear.

Resort collections availability in stores  fall sometime around November, between the Autumn/Winter and the Spring/Summer lines availability. Today’s resort clothing lines are marketed at a range of price points.  Resort wear can be found in affordable brands like the Gap as well as pricier options like Dior. The collections usually incorporate at least some  nautical inspirations or warm weather themes such as prints and motifs featuring the flora and fauna of tropical climes.

If you are actually not going on holiday but just dreaming about it, you can still ‘shop ahead’  while waiting out the cool weather.  Looks include more than Hawaiian prints, swimsuits and open-toed shoes but clothing for all occasions and incorporate trends that are forerunners of the Spring/Summer collections. Below are photos of celebrities  and other jet-setters sporting higher-end resort wear pieces.


Aside from the nautical themes and tropical prints, key looks included in the resort 2104 collections include lace, crochet and needle work, cropped tops, denim and wide-legged trousers. Michelle Dockery in Erdem Resort 2014, Lupita Nyong’o in Peter Pilotto Resort 2014, Keira Knightley in Mary Katrantzou Resort 2014, Rihanna in Stella McCartney Resort 2014 modified, wear floral and print looks. Gwyneth Paltrow in Saint Laurent Resort 2014,  Bar Refaeli in Michael Kors Resort 2014, are pretty in lace. Victoria Beckham in Chloe Resort 2014, Selena Gomez in BCBG Max Azria Resort look chic in wide-legged trousers.  A gallery featuring more resort wear celebrity fashion follows.

Cannes Fashion Fantasies

Posted by Sarah on April 2nd, 2014

Milla Jovovich in Prada at Cannes 2013
For all the higher ideas that we hope would be the driving engine of any creative endeavor, practicalities more often than not play a part to one degree or another. Fashion can  be practical or even functional and mundane.  Teri Agin detailed in her most excellent book, The End of Fashion: How Marketing Changed the Clothing Business Forever, how  business practicality  has lent to  grounding the fashion flight of fancy.  Of course this is only an aspect of a many faceted prism.

Fashion can be an art imbued with the inspiration and rare talent that is part of other art forms. Or fashion can represent fantasy and a bit of escapism. It can be an anodyne diversion that takes us away from the moment. Cannes represents much of the latter and some of the former. As a reboot to this blog and a restart to regular posts, what  could be more fitting than a look at the most recent Cannes Film Festival. The lead photo at top says it all  – a glamorous gown, a sea of photographers and palm trees as a backdrop. In the photo, Milla Jovovich poses on the red carpet at the  ‘Cleopatra’ film premiere at Cannes dressed in a Prada navy and black gown adorned with crystals. (Read more…)
