When invitations to Philip Treacy’s show arrived prior to London Fashion Week, most people asked, “Why?”—why had the milliner decided to stage a runway show at London’s Royal Courts of Justice, and why now?
“I had kind of a lot to say,” the milliner points out. “I love African girls, and I love Michael Jackson—he’s the ultimate African-American entertainer. The show was also based loosely on the contrast between white women who come into my shop, try on a hat, and then look at me for reassurance—and black women. They’ll put on a hat and think, I look great! They have a different sense of exuberance, an inner exuberance.”

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
