The fall 2011 season will be remembered for the tragic fall of a rare fashion genius, John Galliano. The events that culminated in the designer’s dismissal from Dior rocked the fashion world, casting an imposing shadow over the Paris collections.
Yet fashionwise, this proved a stellar season, the good news arriving in myriad ways. It came in the 30th anniversary of one of the most loved people in the business, Michael Kors. His is a tale of resiliency, positive thinking and the credo, know thyself. At a time when others of his generation won accolades for big-time artistry or outrageous antics, Kors kept to his vision of approachable chic. His muse: the sexy tomboy. “I’ve always been convinced that you could be sexy and sporty at the same time,” he told WWD recently. For fall, he kept to that ethos, working in a fab soupçon of Studio 54.
"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)
