SHANGHAI — European fashion houses are getting ready to put a stylish spin on the World Expo, which kicks off here this weekend.
Fashion will figure prominently within the Italian pavilion, which features a replica of the dome of Florence’s Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Ermenegildo Zegna each crafted an exclusive supersize look for the Expo, which will be displayed on mannequins towering at more than 11 feet. Zegna contributed a classic men’s suit, while Dolce & Gabbana made a black tulle number with a voluminous skirt. A wall of the designers’ fashions in real-life proportions will round out the display.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
