Powerful Beauties in New Balmain Campaign #Rihanna #Naomi #Iman

Leave it to the french fashion house of Balmain to take three everlasting and powerful beauties to grace their new campaign. Partnering with W Magazine, Balmain presents one of the most striking covers of the year.

The cover itself is stunning, but W mag and Olivier Rousteing, the new head of Balmain take things up a notch inside the pages of the magazine. Snagging the powerhouses that are Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Iman, W magazine creates an overpowering editorial.

Olivier Rousteing proves without a doubt (pictured above), at 27, he is beyond brilliant as the new head designer and creative director of Balmain. We can’t wait to see what he comes up with next. Bring it Balmain!

And Karl said,”It’s never too early to care about fashion”. Presenting North West in Chanel #BabyFashion #Kimye #NorthWest

When Karl Lagerfeld said , “It’s never too early to care about fashion.”, I don’t think this is what he envisioned.

o-BABY-NORTH-570

Baby Kimye, aka North West is looking darling in Chanel including her first garishly, over priced baby Chanel bag.
According to the nice people at the Huffpost, baby North is posing as a model for the CR Fashion Book.

I can just hear it; “With her mother’s good looks and her daddies ego North Strikes a fierce baby pose sans booties.This evening attire can be yours for around $20,000 dollars you were using to re-finance your house.”

OR you can just take in the cuteness people. Yeah, I can’t hate on North West. It is the one thing Kanye and Kim did right.

The Bare Truth with ‘The Bohemian Society’s’ Victor Wilde #FashionHouse #Couture #Art #LALife (@BohemianSociety)

maxine 1

LA at a glance seems vapid at best. Movie stars with purse dogs, overly blond athletic men and women, juice bars and cleanses, power luncheons and a cadre of meandering, very lost tourists. One would never think that there is a massive and newly booming fashion industry and art collective in the land of twinkling stars and tinsel.

With the established Style Fashion week twice a year, the celebrity clientele, the art/runway shows, and Santee fashion district in DTLA, it’s beyond booming, it’s a massive industry on the West Coast demanding attention. Showcasing names like Rodarte, Band of Outsiders, Betsey Johnson, Rebecca Minkoff LA, and James Perse has brought an influx of ex-NY artists and designers to the palm dotted coast.

Being a stylist and writer leads you unbelievable places and doing surreal things. One of these was to the heart of Bohemian Society’s headquarters, and Victor Wilde’s kitchen. I had spoken with his amazing PR people on the phone, and they agreed to do a clothing pull for a charity shoot I was working on. Then they suggested I interview Victor Wilde, the creative director and designer of The Bohemian Society, while I was there.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth, instead run with it.

vix bio pic

Victor Wilde is the head fashion designer of The Bohemian Society. The Bohemian Society in the last 10 years, boasts a celebrity clientele, dressing supermodels and musicians and is distributed in several high-end Los Angeles boutiques, and worldwide through ASOS.

In his downtown LA loft, you can see his influences. Modern art, recycled and eco sustainable materials, with a heavy Japanese influence. When I asked about it, he admitted he’d, “been to Japan 7 times.” Being a traveler was the key to bonding with Victor. We talked about travel, the international influences on design, and I asked about his background fashion.

Victor Wilde grew up in a fast paced NYC in Brooklyn. “Growing up East Coast you have to be cool.” In Brooklyn that is no small feat. “Kids judge you by what you wear, how you look”, he said, and you have to ‘grow some balls’ quickly. Victor had a better eye than most at a young age for fashion, and in Jr. High School he was voted best dressed. Not bad for a young man barely emerging from his adolescence.

Being young and fashionable was not the only reason Victor progressed in his field. “People said I should to be in fashion. I started dating a model; she was working for one of the biggest wholesale/retailers at the time. People would come in to the store, and she would buy their clothes and sell them, and I thought, I can do better than that. I thought of The Bohemian Society.”

Unlike most designers Victor had no fashion or design background. He admitted, “I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. I started creating t-shirts, and within two weeks, she was showing my clothes in the window.”

 

Yet, Victor Wilde is an artist and his true love is artistic performance. I asked about the part of fashion he loved most and what he was moving towards. ‘(I love) the showiness, and the performance part of it.” His latest projects include working with the insanely talented Swedish film maker Jonas Akerlund, and albino supermodel Shaun Ross (Lana Del Rey’s ‘Tropico’, Katy Perry’s ET), on the ‘Beauty Defined’ project.

In Akerlund’s last installment, the video explains how unique difference is always right, and others degrading natural and odd beauty were wrong. Supermodel Shaun Ross narrative is about his beauty while visually Ross parades through a throng of tourists on Hollywood blvd., in Bohemian Society couture.

This is a theme in Victor’s continuing vision for The Bohemian Society as well. With the fashion industry being a multimedia animal, this creates the perfect platform for Victor Wilde to create and produce his art. A vision of showing & creating, raw beauty.

Timur and the Dime Museum in Bohemian Society

“My next collection will be highly based on interviews with people without any clothes. I paused, ”That’s actually really brilliant. I mean if you are going to get the bare truth…”.

Part of that is Victor’s choice to use and re-use eco-sustainable good’s. I noticed that the loft is decorated with vintage pieces of clothing, art and random finds. His Spring/Summer 2014 collection was made primarily out of the most amazing, ethereal looking WWII parachute material. How did it start and why use it?

“The recycled stuff I couldn’t afford stuff so my girlfriend and I would go out and steal vintage clothing and remake it”. I went to college in North Carolina and then moved to NY and became and performance artist. He explained he used what he had around him in art and design.

I asked if being eco-friendly was an important ‘part of his personality’. “Yes, it reflects part of who I am. I’ve been a vegetarian my whole life by choice. As child I refused to eat meat. My Mom actually used to chase me around the kitchen with chicken and beef”. Being an ex-East Coaster myself, there was much discussion about the horrors of East Coast unhealthy living.

As we speak more, he admits his most recent project was costuming an opera. Not the traditional kind of course, but a rock opera. “I was there for about a week. It played at a festival so it played only one day. “Really?”, I ask, “Yes, it was in Miami, but next year it’s in Brooklyn.”

His current collection for The Bohemian Society’s Fall/Winter collection 2014? “It’s named Wild at Heart. It’s Victor Wilde. A reflection of me, influenced by the Movie (“Wild at Heart” by David Lynch) and it’s sexy, and androgynous. “

Androgyny brings to mind Bowie immediately and we talk over coffee about that, music, Tim Curry and more art.  As far as I can tell, Victor Wilde is an artist, a designer, a costumer, a performer and a multimedia mad genius.

When I asked what he wanted to work on, “Anything that interests me”.

It seems with all of his interests, world domination may not be out of the picture.

Last Installment of #BeautyDefined with Shaun Ross by Jonas Akerlund, clothing by Bohemian Society (@ShaundRoss @Akerlund_Jonas)

This week I am meeting with the head of Bohemian Society, Victor. As I was researching him, his line and his daring and beautiful editorial’s, I noticed he worked with one of my favorite model’s du monde, Shaun Ross. If you haven’t heard of Shaun Ross, you will, NOW.

Shaun Ross in Bohemian Society

Shaun Ross is an amazing model who has worked runway, worked with Lana Del Rey, Katy Perry and appeared on a little show called ‘American Horror Story’. What makes him so distinct? He’s a black albino with white skin and natural blonde hair. Add the talent that is Jonas Akerlund, a Swedish (team Svenske) visionary of our time who has made video art again. The thought of the two of these talents alone is mind-blowing but all three?

Jonas Akerlund, with Bohemian society and Shaun Ross have created the final chapter of the amazing #DefineBeauty films.

Here is an amazing editorial, with three if my favorite minds meeting, to make beautiful art.

LAFW Design Contest with Dom Streater and Heathyr Wolfe #LAFW #Design #Competition

I know I have been missing in action. But while you were all snuggled into your beds by the fireplace I was braving LAFW in 6 inch heels. Although I left with a terrible injury (damn those heels), it was all worth it.

LAFWDCflyer1 LAFWDCflyer2

Good Luck and see you on the runway!

McQueen, Meisel & Moss #Fashion #Editorial #Win

Ok, before you ask where has this lovely bloggy been, I have been deathly ill with the flu for  the 2 and a half time. This thing is easy to get apparently if you work at a 50,000 person convention for four days.

But that isn’t what you are here for is it?

My flu story can wait for another day. Fashion, is what really matters on this page. Especially the World of McQueen.

Sarah Burton has my support in spades. She is genius and is carrying on the McQueen legacy with aplomb. Take the newest fashion campaign. Hiring the ever talented Steven Meisel was smart. But genius stepped in when they added the omnipresent Kate Moss.

m-700x466
With creative direction from Pascal Dangin of KIDS, the 4 completed what can only be looked at as an astounding, and very surreal campaign. There is a mini Kate doll in these photos and I’m not sure whether I am more stunned by her or it. Most likely it’s the over all imagery. Intense, bold, beautiful and blue. The hues create the perfect campaign. Well done House of McQueen and Kate Moss. You’ve once again brought art into fashion.

And the campaign video is amazing as well. Very surreal with a nice creep factor.

2014 Golden Globes Nominations and Red Carpet Live Stream #RedCarpet #Fabulous

It’s my favorite time of year. Award Season in LA. That means the roads get shut down, people buy ridiculously extravagant things, everyone is primping and preening, and all the fabulous actors come out of their nicely nestled homes. It also means awards.

Although I am mostly in it for the dresses, this year the nominations are actually feature some astounding actors and actresses who, dare I say it, deserve recognition.

We’re talking Jessica Lange, John Voight, Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson.

Lana Del Rey’s Short Film ‘Tropico’ is Hot, Hot, Hot and #NSFW #LanaDelRey #ShaunRoss (Video)

Lana-Del-Rey-Tropico

Only the singing Goddess known as Lana Del Rey could bring together John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and half-naked Shaun Ross together in a short film. Tropico is an epic Adam & Eve-esque story riddled with religious iconography. And it…is….HOT.

Good Lord, watch!

Lana Del Rey is the sexiest Mary alive and frankly I can’t get enough of the radness the is Shaun Ross. Who is Shaun Ross exactly (because we know Lana and love her already).

shaun-ross2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shaun Ross is quite the budding actor and he is a GORGEOUS, supermodel albino. Making him hot & weird. Just my type. (Dear Santa….want)

Happy Holidaze from HeathyrWolfe.com, and here’s to the filthy gorgeous Lana Del Rey!

MTV EMA’s – Miley’s Camel Toe & Iggy Azalea Unfortunate Wardrobe Malfunction (w NSFW pic)

It seem’s in you are no one in the industry without a wardrobe malfunction. Whether you spilleth over a la Tara Reid, or you flash yourself coming out of the car a la Britney and Anne Hathaway, everyone has an ‘unfortunate‘ moment.

You also know (or maybe don’t because you have a life) the fabulous, star-studded, music heavy, MTV EMA’s were last night.

Located in Amsterdam (where’s Snoop Lion?), The MTV EMA’s did bring an amazing array of talented artists last night. And some wardrobe malfunctions!

First, Miley tried to steal the spotlight with camel toe…

Miley-Cyrus-2718859

And later at the MTV EMA’s last night by puffing a spliff on stage. We all know the real deal though. She’s rebelling against a country singin’ daddy and is well, she’s just trying too hard. She’s about as ghetto as Ariana Grande and we are getting seriously bored with her twerking.

The real star? Iggy Azalea on the red carpet, and HER wardrobe malfunction.

You all know I have nothing but respect for Iggy Azalea. She is currently my favorite hustler on the scene working with T.I., Pharrel and a bevvy of other hot hip hop stars. She’s got the booty of a goddess, is a gorgeous and very talented model, has a great sense of humor, and has a sick flow, as my roomie says. She also knows how to dress better than 90% of musicians out there having been in the fashion industry.

MTV EMA's 2013 - Red Carpet Arrivals

Wearing a gorgeous gown (still looking for the designer) on the red carpet she dazzled the crowd. Unfortunately as leggy, toned and fabulous as she is in this dress she had very little control over it and flashed everyone her very toned and well coiffed ‘PU$$Y’ (what? It’s a song reference).

Chanel’s ‘Once Upon a Time’, Beautiful and Creative #Fashion #Video #KeiraKnightly

Since I am in the throes of viewing runway video, I thought I would bring you a Chanel treat.

Chanel

Me think Karl Lagerfeld aspires to be more of a director and less art director.

With ‘Once Upon a Time’ Lagerfeld shows a forgotten time splashed with idealism, the sweet hopes of a new business, high society vs. the everyday Parisienne, and dazzles with his collection of Chanel for men and women.

Step into the turn of the century with Keira Knightly as Coco Chanel and enjoy a delightful piece showcasing talent and fashion.

Backstage Exclusive; Tribal by Camille Wood at @Kenneth_Barlis Fashion show #San Diego #Couture

While most of you were partying, in the US, for Labor Day weekend, I was working.

Of course it’s hard to call it work when you travel in business class on the Pacific Surfliner to San Diego.I highly recommend taking it if you are in California. It is so choice.

View from the Surfliner to San Diego;

Then there is the fact it was to cover a fashion show. With a gorgeous room waiting for me. In the famous San Diego Gaslamp district. Walking distance from the pier.

My room at the Marriot;

20130830_155702

Ok, OK I have rubbed it in enough, let’s talk fashion.

Camille Wood is the daughter of a Vogue model and was raised in the dressing room, backstage and on set. Being surrounded by models, fashion, photographers and make up Camille was born into fashion. However we all have our disadvantages and being too short to walk the runway like her mom, she became a fashion designer.

Proving yourself when you are walking in your family’s footsteps is difficult, but Camille has managed to outshine her mother by creating over the top, couture swimsuits and now, her new clothing line Tribal.

I arrived at the Broadway Port Pavilion which is a massive building.

Broadway_Pier_t700

Inside the Kenneth Barlis fashion show was packed with flowing full length gowns, men decked out in suits and array of fine nibbles and beverages. I was very impressed.

With my VIP press pass I headed backstage to a HUGE area that contained multiple designers racks of clothing, make-up artists, hair stylists a food table for crew and more.

20130830_180145
20130830_180154
I found Camille, who looked beyond beautiful in a white latex dress of her own design. She was busy prepping all the models but made time for everyone and every detail.

The ever radiant Camille Wood working with her model, Kelly Lenahan;

Even though it was hot, humid and took time to get everyone ready, all Camille’s models were in a great mood and full of smiles. We were in the very back of the building by the fresh air off the port of San Diego so the models were happy.

And the head dresses were out of this world.

She owned her head-dress. It made me want to buy it.

And at last Javone Henry and Diana Lieziert in full wardrobe and make up.

We decided since we had the very back area of the port pavilion to use it to our advantage. We grabbed all the runway boys and girls we could find and went outside for a photo shoot in the fresh air off the back of the port pavilion. The outfits look good under the spotlight but were dazzling in the sun.

And I got a selfie with my press pass;

20130830_184728

When we came back in it was time for the girls to line up. I caught a perfect moment of them being dazzled by sunlight.

20130830_185934

Then off to the front of the stage to catch the full show. When I walked out into the crowd I thanked Camille silently for my press pass. It was overly packed and the crowd spilled from the stage all the way into standing room only.

As the show began the first presenters came out wearing Kenneth Barlis couture gowns that were simply jaw dropping.

20130830_195010

Then the charity presenter for the event, which helped raise money for Books for Kids in the Philippines was amazing and her story was touching. She came out in a stunning gown as well.

20130830_195252

Poor girl was nervous but did an astounding job and made it through her speech.

The first show passed showing amazing ready to wear, that was very California casual. Cute jumpers, Jodhpur pants and leggings with clean designs and cute graph tee’s. Thigh high legging with high-waisted shorts and unisex pants. Super cute and very wearable.

When Camille’s line took the stage it was, overwhelming. Pounding tribal drum beats followed with two very handsome topless models with spears. Girls came out strutting the stage in skin baring outfits with goddess like head dresses. The final piece was a towering Diana Liezert in a backless netted latex dress with a live SNAKE wrapped around her waist! Beyond impressed.
Check out the full runway video I shot below;

I knew there was a reason Camille wanted me to cover this. Her ‘Tribal’ line literally coined the phrase ‘dress to impress’ that night for me. Turns out I wasn’t the only one who was enamored with her clothing that night. Turns out one of the models bought the top she wearing as well.

After seeing her swim line at LAFW and her Tribal line in San Diego, Camille Wood isn’t just one to watch anymore. She’s one to follow, wear and want.

What’s next for Camille? Check out the sounds byte below and get ready for a whole new wave of fashion from Camille Wood.

Huge thanks to Camille Wood for giving me a place to stay. Thanks to Camille Wood and Kenneth Barlis for backstage access. Lastly thanks to San Diego for having me.
