LOS ANGELES — For designers established or far from it, the A-list of women they would most like to dress is as similar as it is short, and invariably, scoring coveted fashion plates such as Madonna and Cate Blanchett is a coup.
Louis Verdad can already check the two megastars off his list. Even with the maddening excitement of his upcoming show one week away — his first outside of Gen Art and under the Mercedes-Benz Shows LA banner, and only his third collection overall — Verdad is concerned with the look Blanchett could wear to the premiere next month of the Oscar-hopeful “The Missing.” The designer and actress met when he created the coatdress and HotPants she wore for the recent premiere of “Veronica Guerin.”
"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)
