The past week was filled with notable fashion and beauty moments. ICYMI—or in case you need to chat up a very plugged-in set—here are the week's hottest headlines. Take a skim, and voila! You're an in-the-know fashion pro. Now you just need to master your air kisses.
New York Fashion Week! What a blur of fantastical creations and new Yeezy shoes. Kanye West's highly anticipated Yeezy Season 5 show took place on Wednesday, but without some of the hallmarks that typically lend buzz to Mr. West's shows.
We were waiting with baited breath to see if the Kardashian/Jenner family would show up in some kind of fabulous Fashion Week group costume. Something like this. In the end, though, only Kim—looking amazing in aubergine—appeared.
But, relax. After the past few months the family has had, it makes sense that Kanye would want his Yeezy show to happen without all the fanfare that accompanies a gaggle of Kardashians and Jenners. (He hasn't commented on the issue, we're merely speculating, here.)
Plus, Kylie was busy at her pop-up shop—which some people waited to enter for 11 hours. (11 hours! In the cold!) Those who endured the line were rewarded with a little something new. The shop didn't just stock cosmetics; it also offered a peek at Kylie's new "Thick" merchandise.
There it is!
Kendall also had a legit excuse for missing Yeezy: she had a gig with Anna Sui. Anna's Victorian-inspired show also featured Gigi and Bella Hadid. Naturally, this was one of many big #NYFW moments for Bella.
After walking for designer Prabal Gurung: "I I just started crying because it was such a beautiful, moving show," Bella told Fashionista. "Everybody in the audience was crying during the finale; it was really, really powerful and I'm really proud of him. It was incredible." The politically charged show featured models walking in t-shirts with messages like "The Future Is Female" and "I Am An Immigrant."
From models crying to models cringing, this week also brought a tense moment for Vogue and Karlie Kloss. After the magazine put out a spread that featured Karlie in geisha-inspired clothing, Vogue faced backlash from some who deemed the photos culturally insensitive. The magazine responded by removing the pics from its website, and Karlie also let the dissenters know that she heard them—loud and clear.
The model took to Twitter to vow that she'd choose her "future shoots and projects" more carefully. We know you have weekend-ing to do, but can you spare another minute for a piece of Beyonce news?
(We thought so.) Though Bey's golden-goddess-of-maternity look was her most memorable one at the Grammys, she changed into a sparkling red gown after she took her seat. Both looks were from designer Peter Dundas. This is notable not only because, well, Beyonce: the looks were the very first from the designer's new, eponymous label.
We'll see you next Friday for more gowns, glamour, and gossip.
