The New York schedule is beyond imposing, shows layered one upon the next like a fashion trend gone mad. Before we’ve had the chance to get tired we’re grousing, our whining as much a part of this and every season as too-tight bench seating and the frenzied rides to Milk. Then the reminders of why you love it start happening.
My first of the season occurred today. After a quite pleasant Richard Chai Love show and some appointments, time for Kimberly Ovitz. Backstage before the show, Kim and her girls, looking beautifully undone, were hanging out, the latter dressed, lined up, ready to go and just waiting for their audience to arrive. Those in the first range of looks wore gauzy whites, long, fluid, with interesting twists, turns, slashes and debts to Yohji and Margiela in view. “I think my girls are really dark,” Ovitz said, “even though there’s a lightness to this collection.” Fashion dark or really dark? “I think both.” The next question, about the reasons for the real darkness, was more than this young woman cared to take on in the moments preceding her first runway show. Fair enough.
"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)
