FLOTUS to Reportedly Wear Reed Krakoff in <i>Vogue</i>; Michelle Williams's Cover Controversy
and Burberry moves its menswear show to London.
FLOTUS to wear Reed Krakoff in Vogue: It seems that the rumor of Michelle Obama’s Vogue cover has come true. Washington Post contributor Robin Givhan told the paper’s The Reliable Source blog that Annie Leibovitz shot Obama in a Reed Krakoff ensemble for the issue—the same label that designed Obama’s inauguration-day boots. The issue will reportedly hit newsstands next week. [WP]
Michelle Williams’s Cover Controversy: Girl next door Michelle Williams has sparked controversy with the release of her cover for AnOther magazine. The image features the blonde pixie-cut actress styled in stereotypical Native American garb, wearing long black hair extensions tied into two Pocahontas braids, with feathers tacked in. Feminist site Jezebel has described the look as ‘redface’. The outrage follows a similar controversy from November, when Victoria’s Secret dressed Karlie Kloss in Native American-inspired lingerie for their annual fashion show. The look was edited out of the show’s national broadcast. [Jezebel]
Burberry Men’s Moves to London: Buberry is relocating their menswear fashion show from Milan to London. The move marks a big coup for the London Collections: Men, the UK’s version of menswear fashion week, which launched in the summer of 2012. When the English heritage brand relocated their womenswear show back to London in 2009, the move was considered a legitimizing factor for the then-flailing London Fashion Week which has since evolved into a must-see event. Of the decision, Burberry’s creative director Christopher Bailey said in a statement: “London is the creative heart of Burberry and our global headquarters, so we are incredibly excited to be showing our next men’s collection there. The country’s proud menswear heritage and outstanding contemporary talent give it a unique and powerful energy.” [Fashion Beast Inbox]
