    IVANKA TRUMP made the journey from Saudi Arabia to Israel with father US President Donald Trump today and wore an outfit very different to any she’s been pictured in recently. Ivanka Trump: Was the First Daughter wearing traditional Jewish dress? The 35-year-old was pictured next to husband Jared Kushner as the took part in a welcome ceremony upon her father Donald’s arrival at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv. Ivanka co-ordinated her outfit with Jared’s, wearing black and navy, but her style wasn’t as fashion-forward as it’s appeared in the past. She wore a black lace top with long...

    Melania Trump made her debut on the foreign stage Saturday, stepping off Air Force One in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, without a head scarf or abaya, the traditional black gown required for most women. “Thank you for a beautiful welcome to Riyadh,” she tweeted, along with a photo of herself in a pantsuit with large gold belt and matching gold detailing at the neck. Although her choice to appear bareheaded provoked a flurry of tweets, few here were surprised that the first lady chose to forego a head scarf. Michelle Obama did the same during a January 2015 visit with then-President...

    The first lady’s decision to visit Saudi Arabia without a wearing a head covering prompted headlines across the globe on Saturday — but many in the Kingdom took to social media to comment on her classy and conservative look. Melania Trump landed in the Saudi capital of Riyadh wearing a Stella McCartney jumpsuit adorned with a statement belt, which was the most eye-catching feature of the all-black overall. The stretch cady jumpsuit — with wide-leg silhouette, keyhole cut-out at the bust, and cuffed sleeves — caught the attention of many international media outlets and was admired by Saudis who appreciated...

    On Thursday night, President Trump welcomed Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball to New York City. Melania and POTUS hosted Turnball and his wife at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in Manhattan. Though it was an event-filled night, packed with attendees like former mayor Rudy Giuliani and John Travolta, it was Melania who stole the show. FLOTUS veered from her traditional blue and black attire, instead opting for a yellow gown. The one-shoulder silk Dior silhouette was a gorgeous go-to for the spring event. Vogue compares the gown to her Inaugural ball dress -- both graceful off-the-shoulder gowns with...

    What the **** were they all wearing? Seriously? This year’s Met Gala, supposedly ‘fashion’s biggest night out’ and a ‘pinnacle of iconic style’ was the most absurd collection of disturbingly attired human beings since the last Hunger Games movie. In fact, I do Hunger Games a disservice.

    Complete Headline: A floral flop! Caroline Kennedy models a VERY unflattering dress on the Met Gala red carpet - just hours after being hailed by Vogue as one of the 'best dressed of all time' Caroline Kennedy is known for her classic sense of style and fashionable know-how, so it came as quite a shock to see the diplomat take to the red carpet at this year's Met Gala in a highly unflattering - and rather bizarre - dress that quite closely resembled an antique lampshade. The 59-year-old, a close friend of Met Gala chair Anna Wintour, arrived at the...

    They won't relent until every red-blooded American male is toting one. I speak of the fashion industry's newest attempt to persuade men to carry pursues. In a new Chanel advertisement, a fashionable fellow named Pharrell shows, or tries to, that it's hip for a man to carry a purse. The fellow's full name is Pharrell Williams. He's a singer, record producer and fashion mogul who, according to Essence, is a "leader in disregarding societal norms when it comes to style." In the advertisement, Pharrell walks into a warehouse with a heavily ornamented purse strapped around his shoulder. He rides industrial...

    With its outlandish themes and A-list guests, the Met Gala has become the signature event of the year to get brave on the red carpet. But what would bravery be without the risk of failing? Sadly, for a large number of guests attending this year's red carpet event held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday, it doesn't look like their particular risks were worth taking. With the theme this year being Rei Kawakubo/Comme de Garçon: Art of the In-Between, many stars opted for pieced that spliced together strange and surprising elements - with some cringe-worthy results.

    Yesterday was a trying day. The kids woke up early and it was early release. The laptop wasn’t working and I really didn’t want to do anything. And then, midway through my afternoon, the local wives’ page started hopping. You see, clothing store Forever 21 has some new products for sale. . . the military wives just couldn’t believe their eyes. You’re not going to believe it–and you’re probably not going to run to the store, either. Here’s a peek...

    Ever feel like your job in Hollywood or your large trust fund has left you out of touch with the working class in America? Well, now there’s a new way to reconnect with the hoi polloi: Buy a pair of $425 jeans that promise to show “you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.” Luxury fashion retailer Nordstrom was previously best known for dropping Ivanka Trump’s brand back in February—unofficially out of political spite, officially because of declining sales. The company is now desperate to ruin its own brand further by selling a pair of working class-inspired pants, so that...

    The name Anna Wintour conjures an image of the archetypal editrix, poised on the front row, bob perfectly intact, Prada‑clad, with bug‑eyed sunglasses shielding any flicker of emotion. Beneath the glossy veneer, though, Wintour – who has been editor-in-chief of American Vogue for 29 years – is, almost unarguably, the most powerful person in fashion. In fact, in the latest issue of The Business of Fashion’s print magazine, she is hailed as “President Wintour”. In a new interview with the publication – a must-read for fashion industry insiders – Wintour has spoken candidly for the first time about Trump, Theresa...

    If you go to Stein Mart, a discount retail store with almost 300 locations across the United States looking for Ivanka Trump‘s clothing, you might want to ask where the “Adrienne Vittadini Studio” items are. According to a report from Business of Fashion (BoF), the company that makes her clothing, G-III, has changed the label on some items without the knowledge of the Ivanka Trump Brand. There are a lot of reasons this may have happened. In a statement to BoF, a spokesperson for G-III referred to it as a mistake, saying, “G-III accepts responsibility for resolving this issue, which...

    Since it launched in October of 1999, Coachella's become something of a cultural force. The music and arts festival draws almost 100,000 people per day, according to Goldenvoice, including today's top performers and street-style stars. But every year, the thorn in the festival's side is appropriative fashion. From the overtly racist to the blindly ignorant, some Coachella attendees see festival fashion as the opportunity — knowingly or unknowingly — to demean cultures for Instagram likes.

    To dress Melania Trump or not to dress Melania Trump? That seems to be the question—or rather, the ongoing topic of hot debate—for so many designers since Election Day as they figure out how to navigate this new volatile political landscape. And that brings us to the most up-to-date tally of who’s for or against the matter: Christian Siriano is the latest to state on the record that he won’t be designing for the First Lady. “I don’t think I would. I think for a while everyone was trying to figure out what to do,” the designer told Time. “Unfortunately,...

    Malia Obama has become a fashion sensation during her New York City internship and she totally outdid herself Apr. 11. The teen wore nothing but a shirt with no pants and you’ve got to see how she pulled it off! Is Malia Obama trying to start a new trend of going without pants? She sure looked like it when the always fashionable 18-year-old arrived to work at The Weinstein Company in New York. The weather was beautiful and sunny, so she wore a short-sleeved blue collared shirt that is perfect for spring. Apparently she also wanted show off her long...

    There’s new evidence that Ivanka Trump’s brand is thriving, despite boycotts and a swirl of negative press that have roiled the company since the presidential election. The company that manufactures Ivanka Trump’s brand, G-III Apparel Group, reported a $17.9 million increase in net wholesale sales of the brand’s licensed products in the 12-month period ending January 31, according to an annual report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commision last Tuesday. The brand had $29.4 million in sales the year before, the filing said. The company, G-III, which also manufactures products for brands like Calvin Klein, DKNY, and Tommy Hilfiger,...
