Virtual Red Carpet at the Golden Globes
This year’s Golden Globes took place virtually. Stars like Amanda Seyfried and Kaley Cuoco wore custom pieces from Oscar De La Renta. Nominated for directing One Night in Miami, Regina King wore a black and silver Louis Vuitton gown, finished with thousands of crystals.
Anya Taylor-Joy stole the show with an emerald green lurex Dior Couture gown with a matching belt and coat. She later wore a steel satin blue full-skirted, strapless gown, custom-designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
Serena Williams & Daughter in Stuart Weitzman Campaign
Serena Williams and her daughter, Olympia, are the faces of Stuart Weitzman’s latest Spring 2021 campaign. This is the first shoot that features the pair together, wearing black catsuits and leopard print shoes. They also wore matching white turtleneck dresses with chunky boots.
Serena Williams said, “it’s a special campaign. I just felt like it was an opportunity because Olympia and I have been spending so much time together. Olympia is trying on my shoes all the time; it’s so fun — she loves to try them on, and we play in them. I have a red pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes that she loves, and there is the new Lyla style with a toe ring in leopard print that’s one of her favorites,” she said.

Designers Partner with Fashion Makes Change
A variety of designers are working together with Fashion Makes Change to support women’s education. The function is launching ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8th and features Michael Kors, Markarian, and Gabriela Hearst, among many others.
“Women lead the way toward a more sustainable world,” said Cara Smyth, the Chair of Fashion Makes Change. “Project Drawdown, a climate change mitigation project, found that educating women is the sixth greatest mitigator of climate change. Empowering women helps build resilient communities, and when we invest in girls and women, whole communities win. Girls and women belong at the center of sustainable development.”
Coperni Debuted First Drive-In Fashion Show
Coperni has staged a drive-in fashion show for Paris Fashion Week. The concept aims to avoid the 6 pm curfew currently in place throughout the city and is thought to be the first of its kind. Guests were selected and driven to the AccorHotels Arena in a fleet of 36 Citroën DS cars, where the models walked down the road. The attendees were treated with Haribo candy, pink Ruinart Champagne, and Champagne-flavored e-cigarettes.
Hedi Slimane Stages First Show Since 2014
Hedi Slimane will be showcasing a solo exhibition for the first time since 2014. The show will be held at the Almine Rech in Shanghai, the first for the photographer and designer in China. It will include pieces centered around the rock fashion scene, a series of portraits, and an immersive sound installation throughout the exhibition. Starting from March 19 to April 30, the exhibition will also celebrate the work by Peter Halley.
