Pharrell Williams at the Met Gala Through the Years
Pharrell Williams has become almost as synonymous with fashion as he is with music.
The producer and singer works with G Star Raw and Adidas Originals and is a face of Chanel. Plus, he has his own brand, Billionaire Boys Club. While he doesn’t often take the standard dress-shoes route when it comes to the red carpet, at the Met Gala, he’s kept it classic every time he’s attended.
That means a tuxedo and a shiny pair of shoes. He’s attended in 2010, 2011 and 2013, and this year he’s a co-chair, along with Katy Perry. In 2013, he wore a Lanvin checked tuxedo to attend with wi...

It appears that Auvray is taking issue with Gucci’s use of aliens – in general – in its recent video, and not with any specific designs that were copied. Auvray’s Instagram is rife with photos of runway looks, including those from recent Bale...

According to the nursery rhyme, sugar and spice are what little girls are made of. You might also add tulle to this retro recipe of femininity – the stiff transparent fabric is the stuff of tutus. And while the ballerina favourite remains a staple item of the under-eight playground wardrobe, topped with a JoJo bow this season, grownup women are increasingly adopting tulle as an alternative to lace in 2017.
Transparent like lace but less fussy, it’s a key part of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s idea of Dior, on dresses that look like the skeleton of a ballgown. Molly Goddard supersized it for her recent show, with a giant blue tulle dres...

one which embraces inclusivity, accessibility and personalization — went on display Monday at the opening for the Ad(dress)ing Ableism exhibit at the Jill Stuart Gallery.
Co-sponsored by Haven, the Cornell Women’s Resource Center and the Student Assembly, the exhibit sought to explore fashion through the lens of individuals with disabilities.
Students modeled dresses designed to respond to their unique needs as attendees read personal statements written on mirrors placed around the space, reflecting the way each model viewed their look and fashion’s role in disability awareness.
