Karl Lagerfeld Passes at 85. Je Suis Triste: A Fond Farewell to a Fashion Icon.

Yesterday and today, the fashion world is in mourning. Karl Lagerfeld has died and the industry will never be the same. He was a cornerstone, a foundation, of the industry.

Karl Otto Lagerfeld was a creative director, fashion designer, artist, photographer, who lived in Paris.  Born in 1933 Karl was quick to learn, and branched out as soon as possible. By 1955, after living in Paris for two years, Lagerfeld entered a coat design competition sponsored by the International Wool Secretariat. He won the competition and became quick friends with Yves Saint Laurent, and was then hired by Pierre Balmain. He worked as Pierre Balmain’s assistant, and later apprentice, for three years. (Wikipedia)

Most importantly in the 1980s, when Chanel was antiquated and dying, he took over. He turned it into the multi-billion dollar empire that we know and love today. Insane runways in the Palais in Paris full of rockets, crystals, industrial sites. and models fighting for a change. His collections have met us at the beach and had us walk on water. Never a dull moment his runways were and extension of his personality.

His last show, 2019, Palais de Paris, Haute Couture

With his death may have shared their stories. Models like Naomi Campbell, and Karen Elson, speak warmly of him. Others, say he was a sizist and misogynist. Perhaps, he was a bit of both, he was known to be cruel at times. Karl, however, made a point of saying,

“Everything I say is a joke. I am a joke of myself.”

Karl was indeed a man of great talent. His vision and vast knowledge made and broke careers. He was known for his acerbic wit and sometimes, brutally honest personality.

Karl Lagerfeld, was one thing. Larger than life. He created, made, spoke fashion. He made the industry what we see today. He has left a legacy for us to build upon. Let us hope that we choose to do the right thing with it.

Beyonce and Balmain: A Coachella Love Affair #Beychella #Balmain

beyonces-coachella-balmain-costumes-are-concert-fashion-inspiration-for-every-great-performer

I am DEAD.

For those of us who were unable to attend Coachella this year (shut up, I hate my self too) Beyoncé proved that she IS EVERYTHING. Goddess, artist and fashionista supreme. Working her bey-otiful booty for 3 hours she pretty much swept the floor with all of us. This is the only time I will ever say this: I am shook.

I’m talking fashion. Yes, Beyoncé is amazing. Yes her performance was a once in a lifetime experience, but so was her insanely over the top outfits. I was floored by the amazing, never-ending, insane, over the top outfits by Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain.

Look at this and tell me you are not overwhelmed and want to happy cry.

These designs by the house of Balmain realized are beyond the beyond. The original sketches are surreal and show the work of the talent and imagination of a true artist. Realized, they are exemplary and enduring. Sorry Jay-Z you have competition. Beyonce and Balmain are truly, unforgettable.

Didn’t see Coachella but dying for your daily tidbit. Here is one of the only decent copies of the show circulating at the moment. Watch Beyoncé and Jay-Z kill “Deja-Vu” at Coachella.

Check out that outfit on Queen B. It’s just devastating.

 

Spring/Summer 2018 Trends: Bringing Back the 80’s

This Spring it’s all or nothing. A nod to the past has brought back defined shapes and a play on colors. Put away your floral’s and head to the stores to pick up your favorite look  with an 80’s flare. Shoulder pads are in and demure is out. These looks are soft but tough. Vintage, yet modern.

Classy ladies wear pastels;

At Tom Ford, Gigi Hadid and other supermodels, are wearing pretty pastel pink and yellow. The bold splash of color teases the eye but doesn’t dominate the outfit. Other favorites on the runway consisted of baby blue and a pale or mint green. This season has a sweet statement, with light beauty makeup, a classic closed toe heel, glitterati sparkle, finishing off the look with a splash of color.

Mix and match with a dash of color yet not overpowering. Embrace the suit jacket and boxed shoulder. Skips the nudes and head for pastels. It’s an update, with a nod to the classics, and modern update.

In the history of fashion the 1970s were all about nudes, browns, and stylistically very much about ruffles and loose clothing. In the mid 1980’s there was a huge backlash to the constant earth tones and relaxed style of clothing  and woman embraced striking color, square figures and streamlined looks. 1980’s inspired looks are full of bright colors, animal and cartoon prints, finding their niche on the runway and back into the fashion fold in 2018.

Spring/Summer brings color back to the fashion market. This season’s statement is all about the bold and beautiful.  Often seen on the runways of Moschino, The Blonds and jewelry designer Lynn Ban, extreme color is no longer a closet trend.

Seen on 2018’s Spring collection’s we are embracing the adventurous. Animal prints, crazy cartoons, hot pink and orange, electric blues, these have come back in a totally eclipsing way. It’s time to embrace the 80’s colors but instead of being over-sized, mixing and matching, keep your outfit a focused and fearless outline. Bust out your leopard, zebra and giraffe prints. The 80’s are roaring and it’s time you caught up.

Having lived through the 80’s as a child, I missed this playful era of fashion. It means dusting off a dated era and adding an update that makes gives it a contemporary look. Looks that are simplistic, yet eye catching in their statement. Shoulder pads are making a comeback the right way this time, and print’s with color are inspiring and acceptable again. Streamlining your look makes it easy to find an outfit in your closet, no more messy mix and match. Floral’s and 90’s inspired grunge, have given way to much stronger use of colors, even in pastel.

Color, no matter how you wear it is in, and the 1980’s style has a very strong foothold.

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!

Rihanna for MAC Viva Glam II Going #Green #NewColors #Budgetista (@MacMakeUpDaily @Rihanna)

One of the few celebrities a la songstress I am enjoying these days is Rihanna. She has been up, down, fought the nipple censorship on Instagram and got past the foolishness that was Chris Brown. She has made waves in Fashion, both good and bad and then good again. She is pretty much done more in her early twenties than most achieve in lifetime and is bold as F**K.

Riri’s latest amazing campaign with MAC VIVA GLAM is just that.

viva-glam-rihanna-ii-beauty-fall14-300

 

Not only does she look stunning and the subtext of an all green Rihanna MAC Viva Glam Campaign, is not lost on us (4:20 much?). It screams Rihanna, being over the top, without looking too Nicki Minaj. This collaboration truly is proving that Rihanna is full of win, and knows how to work it like no other bitch in the industry (Except Queen B).

 

As awesome as Rihanna is working it, let’s get back to the VIVA GLAM make up for a second.

o-RIHANNA-MAC-VIVA-GLAM-2-570HP

The new colors have a little tang of retro coming in an icy purple, leaving you frosty sexy. This grape color makes us at Heathyrwolfe.com, want to lick our own lips. I swear I saw this color all over the 70’s and resurfaced in 90’s. In fact I think I had this color at one point and used it to the nub.

MAC is keeping it affordable ranging between $16-18 dollars, so if you feel like getting your sexy on this is the color. Problem? Yes there is. This sexy ass tube of gorgeous doesn’t come out until October/September, which means we have to bide our time using Lipglass for the rest of the summer.

Get primed for fall and prepare your Paypal. This color will be everywhere and you want to be the first in line to get it. Added Bonus?

All profits go to helping women and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

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.

Catherine McNeil and Mario Testino Team Up to Create ‘Prima Donna’ for British Vogue #Unique #NoirBeauty

Is there anything Mario Testino can not twist into magnificence? The answer is no, because he is pure art. Add uber model Catherine McNeil and you have an enchanting editorial for British Vogue called ‘Prima Donna’.

Thankfully, Models.com posted said editorial in full. Styled by the very talented Lucinda Chambers, Catherine looks beyond stunning and Mario Testino’s artistic ways have yet again, stolen my heart. It is a shoot full of noir, the romantic and has an air of perfect grace. Truly a trump for British Vogue’s September issue.

Behind the Mirror, Fashion Video by the Hotness Known as DSquared #Fashion #Video #Dragtastic

092012_bb_womens_mainimg1

I love D Squared. An Italian clothing collaboration by twins Dean and Dan Caten (born Dean and Dan Catenacci). Based in Milan these twins are not only fraternal but identical and specialize in the ultra-modern and chic. What’s not to love about D2? Nothing. They are perfection, embodied in fashion and willing to prove it.

I present to you their new campaign video for 2013, “Behind the Mirror”. With of course little hot Dean and Dan action in it a la cameo. In drag?!! You’ll have to watch this gender eff for yourself. Beautifully shot and visually delicious by the geniuses at Mert & Marcus and the double D’s never looked so good.

I present ‘Behind the Mirror”.

Kardashian Krisis for Khroma Beauty

the-kardashian-sisters-for-khroma-beauty

Welcome to Khroma Beauty selling in a Sears near you.

As the Kardashians work on a business empire, their newest venture is into the beauty. It’s called Khroma. You too can look like an orange, plastic tart if you buy this. If it stays on he market.

Unfortunately the triple K sisters are in legal trouble for the second time with Khroma Beauty for the SECOND time in 3 months. This time they have a copyright infringement to deal with. A company called ‘Kroma’ run by Lee Tillett Inc., is saying they need to change their name because it is WAY too similar.

kroma

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT?!! The Kardashian’s are rip off artists?! Seem’s Hollywood and the Kardashians are OUT of idea’s.

My guess? I bet they make it go away with some nice cold, hard cash. Control freak and momager Kris will step in and make it right. Khroma is already selling online and these sell out’s have to get paid. What a shame. I kind of like Lee Tillet, Inc.’s beauty line.

As they say, only the good die young. That goes for business too.
