At its best, runway fashion delivers pure magic. The mid-Nineties through the Aughts were a golden age of such magic, and one of its greatest sorcerers was Lee Alexander McQueen. Season after season, McQueen would transport his audiences to places fantastical — usually exquisite, often dark, sometimes on that treacherous precipice between sanity and madness. He awed and he outraged, and always, he captivated. “So what?” was not in his repertoire.
McQueen’s brilliant body of work provides the structural foundation for the compelling documentary “McQueen.” The film, directed by Ian Bonhôte and written and co-directed by Peter Ettedgui, opens today in New York at the Angelika Film Center and Landmark at 57 West, and in Los Angeles at Landmark and Pacific Arclight Hollywood.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
