In the first season since his New York experiment, Karl Lagerfeld brought his signature collection back to Paris — and back to its roots.
He put that brief, brooding-Belgian moment behind him, and in stark black and white took his look sharp and graphic. Wielding just a hint of dark Eighties edge in its details, with notched straps and strips of patent, the collection’s core was made up of scores of dresses: filmy layered gowns and pretty minis. Cotton baby-doll dresses were cut with sharp flat ruffles, while Lagerfeld swagged and wrapped in jersey.
But aside from the occasional outlandish flourish, including a poufed Imelda Marcos sleeve, Lagerfeld focused on real, wearable clothes.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
