Submitted by blueandred on Thu, 09/22/2022 - 04:42

The London catwalks were muffled and muted by national mourning – but in Milan, fashion week is in ebullient mood.
The Italian fashion industry is on course for its best ever year of sales in 2022. Opening the week of fashion shows Carlo Capasa, the president of the Italian Fashion Chamber, said “in 2022, we are going to reach and even exceed the level of sales generated before the 2008 crisis, recording the [Italian] fashion industry’s highest revenue in 20 years”.

“To good health!” Yeoh says, hoisting a spicy margarita. It’s a Friday afternoon in Beverly Hills, and the 60-year-old actress is easing into a relaxing weekend, a luxury she hasn’t enjoyed in a while. That Yeoh is toasting to health could be seen as a sign of humility.

‘Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris’: A quest driven by love and fashion

Submitted by blueandred on Fri, 07/15/2022 - 05:57

“Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris” is a pleasingly old-fashioned movie about a London charwoman suddenly smitten by high fashion. The object of her infatuation: a dress by Dior.
Lesley Manville’s Ada Harris is certainly primed for entrancement. Although she bemoans the loss of her soldier husband, long declared missing in World War II, she’s no brooder. Despite, or perhaps because of, her lowly station in life, she has a gift for friendship. She’s that rarity in the movies – a dreamer you can actually believe in.

Every year, 5 July is celebrated as International Bikini Day. The day marks the anniversary of the invention of the bikini in 1946 by Louis Reard, a Parisian fashion designer. This year will mark the 76th anniversary of the outfit's invention.
A bikini is a two-piece bathing suit, which is effortlessly sexy.

Through its annual observance, International Bikini day aims to celebrate swimwear and its invention.
