Kendall Jenner Gets Sartorially Spotted in Colorful Maxi Dress for Jean Paul Gaultier’s Launch on Fwrd

Kendall Jenner hosted a party to celebrate the launch of Jean Paul Gaultier on Fwrd on Thursday in Los Angeles. In late 2021, Fwrd named Kendall Jenner its new creative director. In her role, she curates her own edit of designers for customers to shop, in addition to working on brand activations and marketing.

To champion Jean Paul Gaultier, Jenner was joined by many celebrities and fashion industry friends and colleagues for a party at a private residence. There were many standout looks for the evening among the A-list crowd, many of whom notably wore Jean Paul Gaultier.

Jenner herself wore a custom Jean Paul Gaultier dress with a multicolored pattern featuring a palette of green, red, yellow and orange. The strapless off-the-shoulder gown had a formfitting silhouette. She kept her makeup to a minimum.

A Virtual Kendall Jenner? Elite World Group Partners With Igoodi to Create 3D Avatars of Models

A Virtual Kendall Jenner? Elite World Group Partners With Igoodi to Create 3D Avatars of Models

MODELING AVATARS: Elite World Group has partnered with Igoodi to create 3D avatars of models, adding all the measurements of their bodies to their books.
This kind of agreement is a first in the fashion model management sector globally, according to Elite, although avatars are all the rage in fashion at the moment, as reported. “Changes are already taking place. There is no need to wait for them; if anything, they need to be ridden,” said Paolo Barbieri, chief executive officer of Elite World Group. “There are risks, but it is better to take them than to stand still, to attack newness first in order to take advantage of these opportunities. We need to take the customer by the hand, to be able to apply our skill set to novelty.”

Igoodi’s technology is based on scans performed with a process that creates an avatar that is as much a copy of the real person as possible in terms of figure, hair color and complexion. Igoodi also provides a unique set of data called Smart Body, including the model’s anthropometric measurements, taken during the scanning process, which are precise down to the millimeter.

The technology will allow the creation of new operating models that are completely virtual and more versatile while reducing the carbon footprint of modeling, as castings could be carried out online.

“We are thinking of a near future in which it will be possible to make catalogues with avatars of real models,” Barbieri observed. “This will allow people to do two jobs at once, one in the real world and another in the metaverse, or to move virtually, reducing the cost and environmental impact of travel.”

“We are happy and proud of this important partnership which, thanks to EWG’s innovative spirit, allows us to introduce evolution to such an important sector,” said Billy Berlusconi, CEO of Igoodi. “We also like that it is a Made in Italy company like us that is doing this. For Igoodi, technology is a formidable tool that can improve people’s real lives. Our vision is based on the ‘good’ utility of innovation, which supports human innovation in all our activities and according to principles of digital humanism.”

The entrepreneur is the nephew of former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and has been garnering attention with Igoodi, first launched in 2015 and which tackles fashion industry issues, such as the virtual collections designed and engineered on the virtual body.

Vittoria Ceretti, Mariacarla Boscono, Kendall Jenner, Majesty Amare, Adut Akech, Isabeli Fontana, Pleun Keijers and Loli Bahia are only some of the models represented by the agencies of the Elite World Group.

Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber and More Show You How To Style Flared Jeans for the Summer

Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber and More Show You How To Style Flared Jeans for the Summer

From retro-themed disco parties to effortless punk rock aesthetics, the ’70s and ’60s remain the most eclectic, ground-breaking, and sought-after fashion decades of all time.
It’s no surprise then that fashion trends from these decades keep resurfacing back into our era. Sky-high platform heels, vintage mini skirts, ruffled georgette crop tops, and, most notably, flared jeans are top favorites. In fact, the voluminous denim trend seems to be everywhere this summer, from couture runway shows to the streets of New York, and even online platforms like TikTok and Pinterest.
For close to three decades now, skinny jeans have reigned supreme, with plenty of drain-pipe inspiration coming in via It-Girls including Kendall Jenner and Rihanna. But with our A-listers moving their interests away from the skinny category to wide-legged numbers, boot cuts and flares, skinnies have officially made it to the back burner—at least for now.
With support from Balenciaga, Gucci, Michael Kors, and Dolce & Gabbana, to name a few, labels have welcomed the return of flared denims at their showcases, indicating that this time, the trend is here to stay. What makes them a favorite with the likes of Gigi and Bella Hadid, Jennifer Lopez, and Hailey Bieber? These denims are roomier than skinnies, but more feminine than boyfriend cuts. Another star who seems to be a fan of this staple is fashion’s favorite boy, Harry Styles. And if you’re a TV junkie, there’s no way you missed seeing these denims in shows like The Serpent.

While Hadid wore her super subtle flared denims with a matching jacket, Kendall Jenner has been known to make a case for matte black bootcuts. Typically lengthier than regular straight-cut denims, flares are best styled with heels, giving any casual look a more dressed-up vibe.

As celebrities have been showing us with their ensembles, flared denims are the perfect definition of ‘comfort meets style’. Dressed up or pared down, read on the find the different ways stars are styling the ’70s silhouette.

Low-rise

For anyone feeling bold, low-rise jeans are making a comeback, thanks to recent runway appearances at Versace. Bella Hadid was spotted at Raymond Hall embracing this modern, polarizing jeans trend. Styled it with a button-up classic white crop top, the model completed the look with gold hoops and chunky trainers. The faded blue shade is an excellent option if you find black too harsh or lighter shades of blue too soft.

Instead of pants that button at her rib cage, Hailey Bieber has been seen wearing low-rise cargos and jeans to just about every casual outing, and given her fashion influence, it has many questioning whether skinnies are “in” at all. Styled with chunky sneakers and a simple white tee over a plaid yellow cardigan , Bieber gave fans major Princess Diana feels.High-waist

High-waist flares have become a wardrobe staple among celebrities. Selena Gomez wore flattering dark-washed high-waisted jeans with a black cardigan, accessorizing with minimalistic jewelry and a bright red bag for that color pop.
Bootcut

This not-quite-flared, but not-quite-skinny silhouette soared for a moment back in the 2000s before the era of skinny jeans took over. Along with other loose styles, the boot-cut is making a resurgence, as emphasized quite clearly by Jenner in her recent outfits. Jenner was recently snapped out and about in Los Angeles in bootcut jeans and an oversized blazer – a current obsession trending across all platforms. With a plain white tee tucked inside her blue bootcut, she accessorized this basic outfit to a tee with chunky sunglasses.
Jumpsuit

Valeria Lipovetsky, Dior’s brand ambassador, thinks that there’s really no reason to be scaling a forty-foot utility pole to pull off a jumpsuit. While a non-traditional choice, jumpsuits are steadily coming back into the fashion scene. Lipovetsky was spotted in Miami wearing a distinctive baby pink button-up jumpsuit that featured flared pants.
The casual collar and double breast pockets with large buttons draw inspiration from the western Nevada theme. From pearls for a dressy occasion or satin slips on summer nights, these flared jumpsuits can be paired with just about anything.

Trust Karen Wazen to step out in one of the season’s buzziest dresses while serving up vacation OOTD inspiration at the same time. The style-savvy Lebanese entrepreneur is currently on a work trip to Capri, Italy, making it the perfect opportunity to take trendy numbers out for a spin. The latest piece in question is Loewe’s tank dress, which comes in a blurry print of the colors red, beige, and blue, all blending together. Its body-hugging silhouette with a slit make for great Instagram fodder, and the multicolored pattern offers a range of styling options.

Unconvinced? Look to Kendall Jenner, who was spotted in the dress earlier this month, and wore it with a brown St. Agni bag and black platform thong sandals by Dries Van Noten. It may come as no surprise that the piece has been sold out since, but when one does manage to get their hands on it and wants to make their outfit dressier, take cues from Wazen. To add more color to her ensemble, the mother-of-three styled the dress with complementing royal blue accessories that came in the form of a chain-link handbag, and strappy stilettos from her sister Andrea Wazen’s namesake brand.

Wazen was also seen with a dainty chain necklace and bracelets for a bit of bling, while her beachy, wavy hair and a fresh pastel blue manicure added the finishing touches to her summer-ready outfit.

Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Timothée Chalamet Among the VIPs at Revolve Festival During Coachella’s First Weekend

Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Timothée Chalamet Among the VIPs at Revolve Festival During Coachella’s First Weekend

Marketing dollars at Revolve go into harnessing the power of social media, hosting dazzling productions, tapping influencers to drive sales, and mounting the Revolve Festival, which has become a key event for the retailer in recent years.That is, until the pandemic hit. But with Coachella’s return after a two-year break, Revolve Festival was also back this past weekend.
“We had to come back bigger and better than ever,” said Michael Mente, co-chief executive of Revolve, on Saturday afternoon. “A few hours in, I’m super, super confident that we did.”
While most brands throw lowkey daytime events during Coachella, usually poolside with a few up-and-coming performers, Revolve Festival is a full-blown music festival with big-name performers, who in the past have included Cardi B, SZA and A$AP Rocky.

Now in its fifth year — a partnership with hospitality company The H.wood Group (owners of celeb-filled L.A. hot spots The Nice Guy and Delilah) — Post Malone, Ty Dolla $ign, Bia, Latto and Jack Harlow were among those who took the stage this year at the seven-hour-a-day party, held at the Merv Griffin Estate in La Quinta, Calif.
But leave it to Revolve to bring out one of the most talked about people on the planet — Kim Kardashian, who showed up with Kendall Jenner (her tequila brand 818 was a sponsor, the numbers splashed throughout).
There was also “It” boy actor Timothée Chalamet, “Euphoria” star Sydney Sweeney and many more familiar faces — music artists Migos, Tyga, YG, Diddy, Halsey, Diplo, Chloe Bailey; actors Keke Palmer, Peyton List, Storm Reid; models Elsa Hosk, Romee Strijd, Shanina Shaik, and Jasmine Tookes, and social media stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio.
It was a bigger production than in years past — with more activations on hand — but the guest list was kept at about the same number, said Mente: “For us, it was more about quality over quantity. We didn’t want to lose the intimacy of the event. The team worked incredibly hard to put it together.” (Even so, there was quite a backlog of frustrated guests waiting to be shuttled in and out, with some reportedly in lines for hours unable to even make it inside.)
Revolve is now about 1,100 employees total, he revealed. After launching the company with just two, with Mike Karanikolas in 2003, the business grew to be valued at $1.5 billion when it went public in 2019.
Then came COVID-19. But born digital-first, Revolve was ready.
“The biggest thing that we really accelerated was expansion of categories,” Mente said of pivoting to meet the times. “We were always so known for Revolve Festival, Revolve All Around the World travel, but, of course, we’re not all dressing like that all the time. Throughout the pandemic, our customer started to come to us for a broader range of needs. We had that deep trust with her, that it really gave us permission to sell her more, offer more and more to her.”
It’s been working; in 2021, the company had profits of $99.8 million, up 76 percent from $56.8 million in 2020 and ahead of the $35.7 million seen in 2019. Sales of $891.4 million rose 54 percent from $580.6 million in 2020 and exceeded the $601 million total in 2019, as reported by WWD.

“I am such a fan of the two-day shipping, and that’s what gets me all the time,” said 22-year-old Kit Keenan, “The Bachelor” star, influencer and daughter of designer Cynthia Rowley.
“Like, if I’m going on a trip and I forget to order something, it’s there in two days,” she said of shopping on the site.
That’s part of the e-commerce business’ success — it’s reliable, said Mente, working to provide trendy, last-minute shopping in a variety of styles and prices.
It’s about giving Gen Zers options, and moving forward. That also means being more inclusive at Revolve, which has faced backlash for lacking diversity. In September the company will unveil a fall collection sized XXS to 3X made in collaboration with TikToker Remi Bader, whose fashion content centers on body positivity.
The influencer posted a video about a year ago that grabbed Revolve’s attention, she explained.
“I was just like, ‘I love Revolve, but I can’t necessarily wear everything that they have,’ and right away, like that day or the next day, they reached out,” said Bader. “I had maybe 200,000 followers. I wasn’t at where I’m at now.”
Today she has over 2 million followers on the platform.
“I love that they reached out to me and were like, ‘We want you to help make us inclusive. We want to do a line with you,’” she said. “I’m having a lot of input in the design process. I’m trying on things. They’re letting me be super involved…When you find something that you love and fits you, it’s the best feeling. You don’t want to have to fit into the clothes.”
She had on a sheer, cutout, halterneck maxi dress from Revolve’s line with fellow influencer Camila Coelho. It was her first time at Coachella, courtesy of Revolve.
“This sounds bias, but Revolve puts on the best parties,” she said.
Keenan, too, was invited to Coachella (and dressed) by Revolve. She had on a floral top by LPA and tiered ruffle skirt by Lovers And Friends, paired with a Fendi bag and cowboy boots by Ranch Road.
“I’ve been having so much fun putting my outfits together and also seeing what my friends are wearing,” she said. “I feel like we all have a different vibe. I posted a TikTok about how I feel like there’s four types of girls at Coachella. You’re either the boho girl, the trendy girl, the goth girl or the rave girl. I feel like I’ve seen that all around.”

Whatever the looks, Revolve is taking notes, using the data to project forward.
“The rest of the year will be pretty packed with a lot of different things in terms of activations, partnerships, old things, new things, category expansion,” said Mente. “We’ve been on defense for a few years, and now, this is return to full offense, and we’re ready.”

Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid Favorite Miista Pops Up in Paris to Launch Collection, Zine

Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid Favorite Miista Pops Up in Paris to Launch Collection, Zine

Paris Fashion Week might be winding down, but London-based brand Miista is opening its doors on March 9 for a monthlong pop-up to celebrate its latest collection.“We wanted to connect with our followers and friends of the brand that are passing through the city,” said founder Laura Villasenin. One of Instagram’s buzziest brands, Miista boasts an influential friend list indeed, and counts Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Maria Bernad among its fans.
The event kicks off Tuesday with a livestreamed panel discussion in honor of International Women’s Day with four female artists at the intersection of creativity. Villasenin will speak with painter and mixed media artist Johanna Tordjman; musician and DJ Flore Benguigui; stylist and creative director Jamie Maree Shipton, and food photographer Alix Lacloche on risk-taking, navigating the business, and the importance of collaboration as female artists to push ideas forward.

And in a world of Instargam’s ephemeral images, the brand is bringing back the indelible indie spirit of the ’90s zine with the first issue of “Their Gaze.” The print edition, billed as “part zine, part book, part manifesto,” seeks to burst the fashion bubble, and brings together the subversive works of Shipton with Mayan Toledano, Ruth Ossai and Julie Poly.
The four female photographers were tasked with taking the Miista collection into the wild, featuring locations in Kyiv, Mexico and East London, and they’re profiled by writer Grace Banks. All proceeds from the zine will go to organizations supporting Ukraine relief efforts.
“The interest of not only Miista, but our customers as well, is not only fashion but everything around it. We feel that the women that we dress, they are varied but all have something in common — they are interested in culture, music, art, politics,” said Villasenin. “We always like to have something else to offer than a beautiful product.”
Villasenin launched Miista’s ready-to-wear earlier this year after a decade as a shoe and accessories brand with denim, silk dresses and knotted bikini tops and bustiers. It was a big risk for the brand, said Villasenin. She not only launched a new product line but also opened a fully-vertical factory in her home country of Spain as well.
To keep everything local and sustainable, textiles are sourced from southern Europe and Villasenin works with the same team of artisans to develop collaborative and equitable production.
The full collection will be available for fittings at the pop-up, and shipped internationally or messengered to a local address within 24 hours. “We invite them to try the pieces then they can continue on their day with ease,” she said of the delivery concept. No one wants to be bogged down with bags.
The Paris pop-up will be followed by Barcelona in April and New York City in May, with a styling event held in London during the summer.

Best Fashion Instagrams of the Week: Kim Kardashian, Karen Wazen, and Rita Ora

The current climate around the world is a sombre one, due to the latest updates coming our way via Ukraine, which is now in the midst of a crisis. However, the week did begin on a celebratory note thanks to Milan Fashion Week, which has already given us more than a handful of strong sartorial moments.
Among the front row regulars this week was Kim Kardashian, who finally took a break from her back-to-back Balenciaga bodysuits for a rich caramel-hued boiler suit. The entrepreneur then made her way to Prada’s showcase dressed in shades of pistachio green and soft grey, where she was joined by none other than Vogue Arabia’s February 2022 cover star, Rita Ora.

Of course, no fashion week is complete without some Arab representation, and this time, our It Girls brought their A-Game to the streets of Milan. While Karen Wazen—the first Arab woman to feature in a Roberto Cavalli campaign—attended the Italian fashion house’s show in a striking yellow and black tiger print blazer (paired with matching leopard print heels, no less), Tunisian model Rym Saidi took over Instagram feeds in her risqué Fendi ensemble, which comprised of a white bikini top, ivory trousers and cosy coat, all paired with the brand’s logo handbag.

And then there were the big runway moments. After opening for Fendi, model Bella Hadid was joined by sister Gigi Hadid at the Moschino show, which celebrated outlandish, whimsical pieces. In case you missed this week’s coolest fashion moments, catch up below.

5 Things To Know About Prada’s Redefining Milan Fashion Week Fall 2022 Show

5 Things To Know About Prada’s Redefining Milan Fashion Week Fall 2022 Show

Prada’s autumn/winter 2022 collection was a redefining moment for the Italian fashion house. Below, fashion critic Anders Christian Madsen rounds up five things you need to know.
The collection was founded in classic wardrobe pieces

With Kim Kardashian in the audience and Kendall Jenner on the runway, this season’s Prada show was something of a redefining moment for the Prada woman. “This collection is about the history of women, the history of people, not the history of fashion. I have always said this, but now it feels significant to be re-stated”, Miuccia Prada said. “Using these pieces – being inspired by history – connects with the lives of the past. You want to live again, to be inspired. And to learn from the lives of people.” She was referring to the classic wardrobe pieces that characterised the collection: the white vest, the sweatshirt, the bomber jacket, the aviator jacket, the leather jacket, the little black dress and so on, nearly all of them founded in function before becoming a tool for fashion. “Tradition is about humanity: connections between people, passing down knowledge; a human history. These ideas interested us – to look at how and why things had been created in certain ways”, she continued. “But there is only a trace, a memory. It’s not retro, at all.”
It referenced the Prada archives

Identifying the outerwear tropes of the workwear and military wardrobes, Prada and co-creative director Raf Simons played with their genre language, magnifying volumes and adding surface decoration to garments that haven’t historically called for it. They embellished pilot jackets with kitschy, chunky sequins in floral patterns, and adorned coats lifted from the heritage gentlemen’s wardrobe with extra-fake-looking faux fur in saccharine colors. “In taking from the past we translate the beauty, [the] quality of tradition; even of couture. This is always something Prada has done”, Simons explained, alluding to the archival spirit that filled the show. “Valuing history includes us valuing Prada’s history. I think of revolutionary moments in Prada’s history, and we echo them here. There are never direct recreations, but there is a reflection of something you know: a language of Prada. And those moments have helped define our idea of beauty today, which we are now redefining.”
Prada signaled a new openness

With a cast that included everyone from Erin O’Connor and Arizona Muse to Hunter Schafer and new faces, Prada and Simons staged through characters the time-spanning dialogue they wanted to convey through their designs. But it was the appearance of the Kardashian-Jenners – a new addition to Prada’s brand values (although Jenner has walked Miu Miu before and Kardashian has been photographed in Prada) – that really spoke to the redefinition taking place in the intellectual halls of Prada. By including stars known from reality TV and social media on its cast and guest lists, Prada was signaling a wider embrace, which was echoed in the straight-forwardness of the collection. Formidable as they were, these were statement clothes most would be able to understand: enlarged ideas of familiar garments decorated with fun, frilly embellishments that wouldn’t just turn heads, but jump through a social media screen, too.
It was a simplified Prada

If there’s a simplification process going on at Prada, it’s what Simons referred to as an ongoing stripping-down process. “There is an important aspect to me, which is the idea of stripping down. The process of reduction, of focusing – something we have explored from our first collection together – is present again”, he said. “Any narrative has been stripped away, but the pieces themselves have a paradoxical complexity: an internal, personal narrative. Architecture redefines the relationship between a woman and her clothes through something intimate; hidden. And traditional decoration is used in non-traditional forms, to challenge or contradict the visual conventions of pieces. It is never obvious.” Translated for a new, younger Prada customer, the message was this: wardrobe classics, updated; familiar but new; complex-seeming but quite easy to wear.
Accessories included triangle bags and silver boots

Speaking of appealing to the social media generation, Prada and Simons concocted a number of photogenic accessories to whet the appetites of a merch-manic audience. Next to the alien hairdos – a futuristic version of a mid-century up-do – the designers layered their collection with sculptural Santiago-heeled occasion shoes, some rather subversive fade-leather handbags, triangle-shaped and triangle-print evening bags, and knee-high silver boots. But the defining detail may have been the beaded silver chain that closed around the neck of black dresses, attached to a big Prada triangle.

Kendall Jenner is Featured in Michael Kors’ Spring Ad Campaign

Kendall Jenner is fronting Michael Kors Collection’s spring 2022 ad campaign.
Photographed on the roof of Prospect Tower in Manhattan by Dutch duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the campaign breaks today and is a cinematic love letter to New York, the designer’s hometown.
“When I think about what endures, it’s love — romantic love, but also love for your friends, your family and for your city,” said Kors.  “With this campaign, we wanted to bring to life urban romance and the unique juxtaposition of the strength and grit of New York City with love that it inspires time and again.”
The collection features streamlined silhouettes, feminine tailoring, handworked fabrics and an optimistic color palette. Having opened Kors’ spring 2022 show outdoors at Tavern on the Green, the 26-year-old Jenner is shown wearing a structured pencil skirt and bra top, a gingham pullover and brief and a sequined hand-embroidered gown with playful cutouts. With the iconic Chrysler Building and New York City skyline in the background, the images look to take the viewer from day to night.
