If there is anything DomenicoDolce andStefano Gabbana love, aside from a bustier, it’s a theme,particularly for their D&Gcollection. So when thelights went down and the video of snow-capped peakswent up attheir show on Thursday, it was obvious that, just as they did formen’s, the boys were hitting the slopes. Or, more likely, thelodge, as thesegirls, cozied up in cute, cropped sweaters; teenyknit bloomers, and tube topsaccessorized with glittery goggles andknee-high fur boots, were strictly snowbunnies. It was an adorableAlpine escapade, central to which were fresh,Nordic knits done incombinations of maroon and ivory and gray and ivory, somesportinga reindeer or two. Much of fashion is in a sportswear mood, and Fendi’sKarl Lagerfeld servedup one of the season’s strongest takes. Lagerfeldstartedout with a focus on structure and intriguing architectural cuts(e.g.,the opening cocoon like fur coat with a sliced-out arch inthe front) beforemoving on to roomier and more relaxedsilhouettes. To wit, stylish smockdresses came with wide bishopsleeves, some with cascading drape details, whiletailored vestsand coatdresses were cut into swingy trapeze shapes. Before herThursday night show, MiucciaPrada declared hercollection “very feminine” and “sexy,”noting a bigemphasis on the breasts. Sex appeal — thiscollection had plenty. But inPrada’s world, it’s notabout baring all, but covering it up, a point she madestraight outof the gate with a plain black wool dress with long sleeves,high-cut neck and knee-length, A-line skirt ruffled at the hem.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
