2 Posted by - April 7, 2014 - All, Arts + Culture, Fashion, News

This week we’re looking at the fashion focussed exhibitions which are not to be missed, the red carpet looks we’re lusting after and the most ultimate Monday morning motivation…

This week’s best dressed

As Noah was released, Emma Watson hit the red carpet looking possibly the best she ever has, whilst Beckham stole our hearts yet again with his debut swimwear collection for H&M. Enjoy…

Beautiful inside and out

Model Geena Rocero is undeniably beautiful, yet up until recently many of her friends and even her agent were unaware of the fact she was transgender. This week saw her give an incredibly inspirational TED talk depicting her journey through life; an unmissable watch, catch it here:

Interns “R” Us no more…

This week saw Conde Nast forced to close it’s internship program following lawsuits filed by two former interns who accused the publishing giant of paying below the minimum wage. An internal memo stated that “Our internships were considered some of the best in the industry, providing students with unparalleled learning opportunities outside of the classroom. The training and contacts our interns received at Condé Nast helped many begin successful careers here and elsewhere.”

Three fashion focussed exhibitions not to be missed

With the V&A launching their latest fashion exhibition, “The Glamour of Italian Fashion”, on Saturday, we’re far too excited about the prospect of rooms filled with iconic Prada, Fendi and Valentino. Charting the history of Italian fashion from WWII onwards, the exhibition looks set to showcase the best of the country’s decadence and style.

Another event of note is “From Vera to Veruschka: The Unseen Photographs by Johnny Moncada” showing at Somerset House until June. The exhibition showcases previously unseen images of one of the world’s most beautiful women, shared by Moncada days before his death.

Finally, the Barbican’s forthcoming exhibition will centre around Jean Paul Gaultier and his journey through the fashion industry. Oh là là Monsieur!

Crumbs! That’s one cracker of an art work…

To conclude, a further collision of the arts and fashion worlds this week saw Jacob’s- they of iconic nibbles- commission artworks recreating some of Britain’s most iconic faces in their snacks. Mossy got Cream Crackered, Twiggy Twiglet-ed. We’re rather fond of the outcomes; be sure to look out for them appearing on the side of London buses any day.
