For an industry famous for its obsession with eternal youth, fashion is not one to let an anniversary go by unnoticed. This season there was an abundance of major milestones: Kenzo’s and Roberto Cavalli’s 40th, Pierre Cardin’s 60th, French Vogue’s 90th, and, of course, WWD’s 100th, all of which must have made those celebrating 25 years on the map—and there were many—feel likekids again. For whatever reason, the class of ’85 seems to have produced an inordinate amount of acts with staying power.
There was Mr. Most Likely to Develop a Thick Skin, Tommy Hilﬁger. His celebration began with a logo topiary installed in the middle of Lincoln Center’s outdoor plaza, and then packed three mezzanines worth of the Metropolitan Opera House with fashionable masses—among them JenniferLopez, Bradley Cooper, Lenny Kravitz—for a party serenaded by The Strokes. Next up, Ms. Most Likely to Meditate Her Way to the Top, Donna Karan, who at 62, looks as good she did when she actually was 25. Also, turning the corner on a silver anniversary, Elle Magazine, Most Likely to Require Its Editors to Carry A SAG Card.
