Time is a Construct at Gucci?s Cosmogonie Show

05/17/2022

Does time mean anything anymore in fashion? If trend cycles repeat every 20 years (take Y2K’s resurgence as one example), can anything ever be considered new? These are the questions that creative director Alessandro Michele posed at the Gucci Cruise 2023 show, Cosmogonie. Michele chose a 13th-century castle in Puglia, Italy to debut an eveningwear […]

Is Early 2000s Paparazzi Culture Back?

05/16/2022

The early 2000s was the golden age of the paparazzi, and the photos captured then (be it Britney Spears wearing a “Dump Him” T-shirt on a coffee run or Kim Kardashian taking a painful sip of vodka at the club) have lived on like sullied souvenirs of decades past. Over the years, we’ve only become […]

Celebs Served Up PDA on the BBMAs Red Carpet

05/16/2022

Love is in the air…or at least it appeared to be at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards. Instead of using the red carpet to pose in their designer outfits, many celebrities chose to show off their dates. Machine Gun Kelly kneeled down to take photos of his “wife” Megan Fox (he said it, not us!); […]

All the Looks from the Junos Red Carpet

05/16/2022

Last night, the 2022 Junos brought together some of Canada’s best music talent. And while the event’s red carpet is typically a more understated affair compared to those happening stateside, you can still expect some stand out fashion moments (like host Simu Liu in awards season’s favourite colour, hot pink). But perhaps the most memorable […]

Taylor, Give Us 1989 Already

05/13/2022

The first time I heard 1989 by Taylor Swift, I was still a teenager and my world felt like it was about to change forever. It’s only been eight years since the album’s release and yet it feels like it happened in another lifetime. Back then, in 2014, Spotify wasn’t really on my radar and […]

The Soap Opera-fication of Selling Sunset

05/13/2022

I started watching Selling Sunset the year after it had first premiered, when a coworker promised I’d fall in love with “the mean one in the black wedding gown.” She was right, because after only a few episodes, I was enraptured by Christine Quinn’s cinematic presence and the Short Kings (Jason and Brett Oppenheim) running […]

Louis Vuitton?s Cruise Woman is the Main Character

Everyone has their rituals when buying new shoes. Some walk around the store. Others might jump up and down on the spot. But my friend and I put prospective purchases through a “run away test.” What is the run away test, you might ask? It’s about checking to see if we can literally run away […]

How I Reclaimed Indian Beauty Rituals for Myself

As an on-air culture commentator, I often get to watch films and TV shows before they’re released to the public. Admittedly, I’m a little choosy with what I spend my time watching. But when a preview for season two of Netflix’s Bridgerton became available, I cleared my schedule and binged all eight episodes in two […]

The ?Weird Girl Aesthetic? is Harajuku Style Reborn

In theory, clothing can never be ugly. I mean, at its core, styling is all about self-expression. So what makes us think that some things are fashionable and others are not?

Bri Scalesse Wants to See More Disabled Models

Casual Instagram is Still a Performance

05/11/2022

I was an early adopter of Instagram. Over a decade ago, I downloaded the then-brand-new app onto my iPod Touch and began haphazardly documenting moments in my young adolescence: my colourful socks, the movie playing on my TV, a duck-face mirror selfie. My clumsy collection of spontaneous, often blurry photos had no motive other than […]

Euphoria’s Chloe Cherry is a Subversive Fashion Star

At Fashion Art Toronto — the city’s longest-running fashion week — the message was clear: fortune and fashion favour the bold. What does that look like exactly?
