Celebrity designer Kors plays up signature looks at Fashion Week
Still, that’s Celebrity Spectacle Wearer of the Year done for another 12months and I think I speak for all those fascinated by the business of glasses-wearing to say that the production has left us clamouring for more. In the meantime, the question iswhere this modern curiosity fits intothe canon of other pointless awardceremonies. After all, it was only the other week that Taylor Swift was gushing from the stage at the 41st Annual Fragrance Foundation awards . And while you might think showbiz perfumery isn’t that unworthy of garlanding, it’s that “41st” in the title that really gives a sense of the scale of the task humanity faces. None of which is to detract from the achievements of Taylor, who scooped the Fragrance Celebrity of the Year award. Not Celebrity Fragrance of the Year that’s something else entirely, apparently but Fragrance Celebrity of the Year. (Nope. Me either.) Then, of course, you’ve got the myriad versions of Celebrity Mum of the Year, run annually by everyone from supermarkets to online gambling firms none of whose previous winners include Joan Crawford and Medea, although they absolutely would have had the organisers thought either of them would have turned up to the ceremony. The same goes for the equivalent Dad of the Year trophies, with bookies already believed to have stopped taking bets on Simon Cowell for 2014. And naturally, no discussion of self-satirising awards would be complete without a mention for the Awards Awards, which was inaugurated in 2004 to honour the best award ceremonies of the year. In the end, though, the one Lost in Showbiz really struggles to get past isCelebrity Nose of the Year. Yes, Celebrity Nose of the Year: here is the award that somehow makes Rear of the Year look like part of the Nobel stable.
Unsurprisingly, a week at these luxurious resorts is the equivalent of six months rent for us common folk. Take a look: 1 Cabo San Lucas, Mexico Jennifer Aniston and fiance Justin Theroux favor this spot, as does Lady Gaga. Staying at the luxurious Villa de la Luna , for instance, can cost up to $11,500 a week. 2 Saint-Tropez, France The south of France is very popular among celebs. Uma Thurman recently took her family there, power couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher were spotted in the area, and everyone’s favorite Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel flies over there to relax. A week-long stay in the town’s Villa Peninsula , for example, can cost 47,500 euros ($62,600). 3 Heidi Klum (@heidiklum) July 20, 2013 Heidi Klum is a big fan of the island. Staying at the St. Regis royal resort can cost up to $35,000 a week. 4 Los Cabos, Mexico Another fan of the Mexican sandy beaches is Kate Beckinsale. A stay at the posh Vila Golondrina , for instance, can cost as much as $15,400 a week. 5 Mykonos, Greece The Kardashian-Jenner clan famously spent their summer in Mykonos, and Sofia Vergara is an avid fan, too. A two week stay at the Aegean Oasis Luxury Villa can cost as much as 30,000 euros ($39,500). 6 Puerto Rico When sexy lady Eva Longoria heads to the Caribbean, you can be sure she keeps it classy.
CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF DESIGN Elie Tahari says he would have been an architect had he not gone into fashion, so it seemed apt that the Israeli designer drew inspiration for his spring 2014 collection from influential architect Oscar Niemeyer. Against a backdrop of undulating white canvas screens, reminiscent of the sensual Brazilian architectural style of his muse, Tahari displayed a mostly black-and-white collection of laser-cut leather, eyelets and mesh celebrating his 40 years in the fashion industry. “When I first started out, there was the hippie style, and we were all going back to nature.’ Then there was the Japanese period of deconstruction. Today it’s high-tech, Silicon Valley,” Tahari said as he mingled with guests at the presentation. The collection featured creations paying homage to each of the decades Tahari has been designing. In a rare use of color, he fashioned a “mod” leather dress in black and bright aqua. “It makes me feel like a Bond girl,” said Nadia Araujo, who was modeling it. Brandon Sun, former fur designer for Oscar de la Renta, used accents of pelt throughout his collection. Red-orange and pink patches of fur embellished a straight white skirt, while a boxy jacket was made of green and white fur. Along with color blocking, vertical orange stripes on the side of a wide-leg trouser and a dusty pink dress provided a sporty look. Translucent blouses, cropped tops, plunging necklines and spaghetti straps gave it a feminine feel. New York Fashion Week ends on Thursday with shows by Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, and it is followed by shows in London, Paris and Milan. Showing on Wednesday, American designer Nanette Lepore offered a tightly edited collection of highly wearable dresses and separates in spring shades of blush, whites and aqua, livened up with vivid poppy and florals.
Celebrity Playdate! Harper Beckham Hits the Park With Molly Sims’s Son
Harper Beckham Hits the Park With Molly Simss Son David Beckham and Harper with Molly Sims and Brooks (FameFlynet) Harper Beckham is only 2 but she already has quite the contact list! The youngest child of Victoria and David Beckham brought her adorableness to a Manhattan playground on Tuesday for an afternoon of fun with another celeb tyke: Molly Sims’s 1-year-old son, Brooks. The silver-spooned sweeties hit the jungle gym together as her football star father and his model mother looked on. The kids also played with balloons and very importantly practiced sharing. In a too cute moment, Harper, who was outfitted in a pink dress and Doc Martens boots, handed Brooks a firetruck. After Sims headed off with Brooks (nap time perhaps?), Harper who has three big brothers Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, and Cruz, 8 spent time on the swings, reaching new heights with some help from her dad. The retired sports star seemed truly smitten with his only daughter, snapping photos of the bun-headed beauty and keeping her hydrated by giving her sips of his bottled water. (FameFlynet) That Harper Beckham is living the life! Earlier this week she sat front row at New York Fashion Week , taking in her mother’s show on Sunday alongside Vogue editrix Anna Wintour, who, shunning her icy reputation, actually smiled at the young charmer. Of course, Harper was appropriately attired for the show. Designer Christopher Raeburn made her a “new doggie bag,” which Victoria showed off on Instagram . And with her mom busy at work this week, Harper has otherwise been enjoying lunch dates (at Balthazar in Soho no less!), strolling around the Big Apple with her maternal grandparents, and generally just making us jealous of her awesome lifestyle and wardrobe. Lucky kid.
