Tribeca Festival films go behind the scenes in fashion, dance and theater
By Patricia Reaney NEW YORK (Reuters) - From final fittings at a famous Parisian fashion house to rehearsals for a young choreographer's new work for the New York City Ballet and a global tour of "Richard III," documentaries at the Tribeca Film Festival give viewers the film equivalent of a backstage pass. "Dior and I," which opens on Thursday, follows creative director Raf Simons, 46, as he prepares his first couture collection for Christian Dior, and uncovers similarities between the Belgian designer and the French founder of the famous Parisian fashion house. "There were all these uncanny things," said New York-based, French-born director Frederic Tcheng about the two men, both shy, reserved and inspired by the arts. Using voiceover excerpts from Dior's 1956 memoir "Christian Dior & I," Tcheng introduces viewers to Dior, both the man and the fashion house he created.
Exclusive: 'Leopard King' Cavalli nears 450 million euro sale to Permira - sources
By Pamela Barbaglia and Sophie Sassard LONDON (Reuters) - Italian designer Roberto Cavalli is in advanced talks to sell a majority stake in his eponymous fashion house to London-based buyout firm Permira in a sale worth about 450 million euros ($621 million), four sources close to the deal told Reuters. A sale would mark the end of more than 40 years on the haute couture scene for Cavalli, known as "The Leopard King" for his animal prints colorfully cast in leather, silk and velvet. And it would demonstrate once again the appeal of Italian family-owned fashion firms for investors after rival label Versace sold a 20 percent stake to U.S. private equity firm Blackstone for 210 million euros in February. An agreement between Permira and Cavalli could be reached in the coming weeks after the 73-year-old designer, rarely seen without his large sunglasses and cigar, dropped his reluctance to ceding a controlling stake, the sources said.
Don't have a Pucci scarf? Brand's new 'Scarfie' app lets you pretend you do
Luxury Italian fashion brand Emilio Pucci has launched its first mobile app, celebrating the label's signature accessory, the printed silk scarf. Scarfie is a playful twist on the selfie social media trend, letting users take photos of themselves and then personalize the image with the addition of a Pucci scarf. Pucci is curating a specially selected portion of the stylish snaps to publish on its new, dedicated Tumblr page at emiliopucciscarfie.tumblr.com. Pucci is by no means the first fashion label to dip its toe into the unstable waters of offbeat apps: last month designer Karl Largerfeld launched a quirky emoji app called emotiKarl, featuring ideograms inspired by the fashion world.
A gay artist will get his images on stamps in Finland
Finland's postal service will honor "Tom of Finland" with stamps taken from his work - homoerotic drawings of muscular men wearing tight, black leather uniforms, when they wear anything at all. The stamps, which will be issued in September, are based on the drawings of Touko Laaksonen, better known by the pseudonym "Tom of Finland," who split his time between Finland and California. "Tom of Finland is considered one of the most well-known Finnish artists around the world," Finnish postal service Itella said in a statement issued this week regarding Laaksonen, who died in 1991. "His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion." Graphic artist Timo Berry, who designed the sheet of three stamps, said they portray a sensual life force and being proud of oneself.
Desigual names Adriana Lima as brand ambassador
The Spanish apparel brand is celebrating its 30th anniversary by hiring world class supermodel Adriana Lima. The tie-up does not come as a surprise, as the 32-year-old model walked the runway for Desigual in July during Fashion Week in Barcelona. Announcing the news, the brand declares that it sees Lima as the embodiment of its slogan "La Vida es Chula" ("Life is Cool"). "Adriana will be an excellent 'la vida es chula' ambassador because she reflects our values and represents Desigual women who are confident, optimistic and full of life.

Texas woman sentenced to life in stiletto-heel killing
By Amanda Orr HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Texas jury sentenced a woman on Friday to life in prison for stabbing her boyfriend to death with the 5-1/2-inch stiletto heel of her shoe during an argument after an alcohol-fueled night out last year. Ana Trujillo, 45, was convicted on Tuesday of killing University of Houston professor Stefan Andersson, 59, who had been stabbed about two dozen times in the face and head during an altercation at his upscale condominium. "I didn't mean to kill him," Trujillo told Judge Brock Thomas after hearing the sentence. Jurors took less than two hours to convict Trujillo of murder and the same jury deliberated for several hours on Friday before deciding that she should serve life in prison.

Emphasizing innovation, the menswear line features raw denim jeans (available in slim, regular and regular evolution fit), combination chinos/sweatpants in multi-layered jersey, raw denim shirts, and a nylon padded jacket.

Move over, Mum: Prince George is new fashion icon
Just months ago it was his mother's fashion choices that sparked a buying frenzy -- but with just one pair of mini-dungarees Prince George appears to have stolen her fashion limelight. When the eight-month-old future king crawled about in a playgroup in Wellington, New Zealand, on Tuesday for what was billed as his first major public engagement, his outfit sold out within hours -- the same effect that his mother Catherine has had in the past. "In today's fashion climate what your children wear says as much about you as it does them," Estelle Lee, editor-in-chief of Baby and Me, a magazine for new parents, told British newspaper The Times. Two days ago, George's kangaroo-themed toy bag that was carried by his father Prince William as they arrived for their tour Down Under prompted a rush of orders on the website of the Australian Koala Foundation.

Diamond shapes and straight or curved lines were very much on view, notably in the Osklen, Ronaldo Fraga, Teca and Lolitta collections. Turquoise took the prize on the color front.

Nicole Kidman totally transformed in latest Jimmy Choo campaign
The world-famous Australian actress looks at least 20 years younger in the new Pre-Autumn/Winter campaign from Jimmy Choo. Scantily clad, Nicole Kidman barely looks like herself in the images, which seem to have been heavily edited. After transforming into a redhead in a campaign shot by Mikael Jansson and showing her sensual side for photographer Sølve Sundsbø, the 40-something is hardly recognizable in these images taken by Willy Vanderperre. Nonetheless, Kidman looks glamorous and rebellious, wearing a white blazer with black and silver boots, in line with the rock 'n' roll aesthetic of the Jimmy Choo pre-fall collection.

Hijab design takes centre stage at Tokyo Fashion Week
Among the aspiring Asian designers competing for the limelight at Tokyo Fashion Week, one of the most striking was an Indonesian label's bid to blend a traditional Muslim headscarf with haute couture. The twice-yearly show, which wraps up on Saturday, saw NurZahra roll out its autumn/winter collection "Layers of Fidelity", turning the modest hijab into sophisticated fashion. The label -- whose name means "the luminous light" in Arabic and takes from Fatimah Zahra, the daughter of Prophet Mohammed -- wanted to prove that the female hair-and-neck-covering wrap, common in the Islamic world, could still take on playful elements. "The modest hijab is not actually a restriction" in fashion, designer Windri Widiesta Dhari told reporters after her stylish designs hit the catwalk.

Marc Jacobs on beauty: 'The eyes are the first feature I notice'
Interviewed at the luxurious Hôtel Meurice in Paris, the designer sat down with Parismodes.tv on March 13 to talk about his new Marc Jacobs Beauty line. At a Paris Fashion Week party earlier this month, the designer also unveiled the face of the line, 68-year-old Oscar winning actress Jessica Lange. How would you define female beauty? "My ideal beauty is someone who finds things or finds her look in makeup because they please her, they suit her, they may reference things that she likes or she may be experimental or whatever it is but again they are her self-expression and she really indulges in the luxury of makeup because it is something that she loves and not for others.
Chanel turns itself into a giant supermarket for fashion week
Most designers try to make consumers dream at their fashion shows, but Karl Lagerfeld sought to bring them back into real life by presenting his latest collection in a spoof Chanel supermarket. "For me the supermarket is the pop art of today," Lagerfeld said on Tuesday after the show, admitting he rarely went to supermarkets himself. Pushing brightly colored trolleys and pretending to exchange gossip, models picked up products with tongue-in-cheek labels such as Coco beer bottles, Chateau Gabrielle white wine and Chanel crémeuh - or creamoo - milk. Others carried metallic baskets adorned with Chanel's iconic handbag chains.
Paris fashion week zips up, flounces, and soars to outer space
By Alexandria Sage PARIS (Reuters) - Designers at Paris fashion week mixed spectacle and showbiz to swing the fashion spotlight away from Hollywood's Oscars, with enough zippers, fringing and space-age chic to keep the photographers busy. Under the ornate ceiling of the Opera Garnier on Monday, British designer Stella McCartney presented sinewy zippers embroidered into parkas and sweaters in a collection with a 1970s vibe.
Grey skies don't deter Rihanna at Paris fashion week
By Alexandria Sage PARIS (Reuters) - Rainy skies did not deter the fashionistas from gathering this week in Paris - with singer Rihanna this season's front-row "It" girl - as the Fall/Winter ready-to-wear collections promised cold weather looks to warm the iciest of hearts. As winter refused to say goodbye in the City of Light, Dior head designer Raf Simons resuscitated his "flower woman" on Friday, this time sheathing her in doubled-breasted power suits with white laces up the sides. Still, the audacious fabric and colour combinations, such as emerald green and fuchsia, kept fans of the house of Dior buzzing, and Rihanna, who sipped champagne from the front row at Lanvin the night before, slipped backstage to schmooze with Simons. Designer ready-to-wear, or pret-a-porter in French, is an 85-billion-euro ($116 billion) global business, according to Euromonitor, and the fashion week that runs from Tuesday through to March 3 is a major advertising weapon for brands.

Fantasy and furs draw Milan fashion week to positive end
By Isla Binnie MILAN (Reuters) - Hooded models walked in an enchanted forest and fox-fur mixed with lambskin on Milan's catwalks on Sunday as the city's women's fashion week drew to an end in a positive mood. A frosty oak tree rose from beneath the stage in a flurry of snow at Dolce and Gabbana before models glided out in clothes stitched with squirrels, foxes and childlike flowers. Salvatore Ferragamo showed a textured collection of furry coats, metallic dresses and leopard-print skirt suits for autumn and winter, in a startlingly bright white room. As Italy installs a new government and struggles to emerge from recession, the national chamber of fashion (CNMI) is strongly promoting a sector it forecasts will earn 62.5 billion euros ($85.63 million) in revenue in 2014.

Lake of fire and luxurious lambskin at Milan fashion week
By Isla Binnie MILAN (Reuters) - Models stalked around a fiery lake at Roberto Cavalli and were swathed in luxurious lambskin at Bottega Veneta in Milan on Saturday for the city's biannual women's fashion week. A pattern of scarlet flames licked around the hem of a black evening gown and beaded flapper dresses reflected blue spotlights and the glow of real fire at Cavalli's show. Bottega Veneta chose powdery pink, grey and beige for shearling coats, linear crepe dresses and pleated skirts, adding the occasional flash of purple, emerald green and red. Italy's national chamber of fashion (CNMI) expects the industry to make 62.5 billion euros ($85.91 billion) in revenue in 2014, returning to sales growth after two years in decline.
