Nepo babies dominating the fashion world: Iris Law, Kaia Gerber, Lila Moss & more

Nepo babies – it’s a hot topic. Not to mention a controversial one. The term refers to the offspring of celebrities or industry insiders who automatically help their kids get ‘a leg up’ upon starting their careers. While there has been much debate concerning the even-handedness of the existence of nepo babies primarily in Hollywood, there have been many nepo babies permeating the fashion sphere. And dare we say, it’s not always such a bad thing.

Stella McCartney, daughter of Sir Paul McCartney has used her platform to promote a more ethical approach to fashion design. Lila Moss, daughter of supermodel Kate Moss, advocated awareness for diabetes, previously posing with her diabetes monitor for a 2022 Fendi campaign. Ella Emhoff is taking a leaf out of her stepmother Kamala Harris’ book, showing that there is a place for politics in fashion. You get the picture.

Museum acquires Bowie’s archive, will put it on display

LONDON — From Major Tom to Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane, the many faces and inspirations of David Bowie are getting a permanent home in London.

Britain David Bowie

David Bowie performs during a concert on Set. 14, 1995, in Hartford, Conn.

Britain’s Victoria & Albert Museum announced Thursday that it has acquired Bowie’s archive of more than 80,000 items as a gift from the late musician’s estate. The trove of costumes, musical instruments, letters, lyrics, photos and more will be opened to the public at a new arts center dedicated to the chameleonlike pop icon.

The David Bowie Center for the Study of Performing Arts is due to open in 2025 as part of V&A East Storehouse, an offshoot of the U.K.’s national museum of art, design and performance that is being built in east London’s Olympic Park.

The V&A said the center will let fans and researchers gain insights into the creative process of Bowie, who died in 2016 at the age of 69.

Kate Bailey, the museum’s senior curator of theater and performance, said the archive was an “extraordinary” record of a creator whose “life was art.”

A reflection of the costume that David Bowie wore as Ziggy Stardust on tour and during a performance of “Starman” on British pop music show “Top of The Pops” is photographed as part of a retrospective David Bowie exhibition on Mar. 20, 2013, at the V&A Museum in west London.

“Bowie’s a polymath, he’s multifaceted. He was inspired by all genres and disciplines,” she said. “He’s an artist who was working really in 360 — drawing from literature, but also drawing from art history … (and) the places that he’d been to.”

Every Time Cate Blanchett Has Reworn a Red Carpet Look

As Cate Blanchett’s longtime stylist Elizabeth Stewart once said, “It’s chic to repeat.” And boy did she mean it. While some celebrities will reuse a look once or twice throughout their red carpet career, Blanchett is constantly digging in her archives to bring back her best looks for another go around. From the gorgeous lace Armani Privé dress from the 2014 Golden Globes to the Alexander McQueen suit with satin blue sleeves from her Where’d You Go, Bernadette press tour in 2019, Blanchett has given so many pieces a new life by wearing them for a second appearance. Back in 2020, she went all in on the rewears for the Venice Film Festival, brining along upwards of four looks we’d already seen before. But we’re not complaining. In fact, more celebrities should take note—not every event needs a new dress, and some of these pieces deserve more time in the spotlight. In fact, there are a few of Blanchett’s greatest hits we’d love see on the red carpet again (the one-shoulder periwinkle Jean Paul Gaultier gown she wore to the Oscars in 2005 comes to mind). So while we wait to see which old look Blanchett breathes new life into next, check out every time the actress has embraced chic repeats over the years.

Blanchett initially wore this suit from the Alexandre Vaulthier fall/winter 2022 haute couture collection to a screening of TÁR back in October 2022. Just a few months later and she pulled the double-breasted short sleeve jacket out again. This time, though, she ditched the turtleneck underneath and paired it with a slimmer, cropped pant. And if that necklace looks familiar to you, that’s because it’s the same strand of Louis Vuitton pearls Blanchett just wore with her

The royal couple announced on social media earlier this morning that they were on the way to the West Midlands.

Fresh from the weekend’s sporting events, where Prince William witnessed the Lionesses historic Euro 2022 win at Wembley, and the duchess helped Sir Ben Ainslie’s Great Britain team win a special Commonwealth race against New Zealand in Plymouth, the pair said they were “looking forward to an exciting day of sport.”

How Meghan Markle’s style has changed since leaving the Royal Family

Even before she married Prince Harry, Meghan Markle was used to being in the public eye.

Not only was she starring in courtroom drama Suits, but the then-actor was attending events and walking countless red carpets, so she has always known a thing or two about looking good in front of the camera.

But A-list events and even her own lifestyle blog The Tig, had to take a step back when she became a senior member of the Royal Family when marrying Prince Harry in 2018.

Cue high-neck midi dresses and work-appropriate pencil skirts for public appearances, and demure gowns for evening wear as the couple took on their duties on behalf of the monarchy.

But in January 2020, the couple made the decision to step down as senior royals, eventually moving their family to Montecito, California.

At the same time, Meghan turned 40 in 2021, so how has the duchess’ style changed since departing the Royal Family and heading into her 40s?

Firstly, unrestricted by protocol, or the unwritten fashion rules of ‘The Firm’, Meghan has been able to stretch her sartorial legs out again, trying out ensembles that she may not have been able to as a working royal, such as baring slightly more skin and shorter cuts.

Her wardrobe now also features more trend-led pieces. Meghan’s royal wardrobe was understandably quite conservative, but today we’re seeing a lot more experimentation with different silhouettes and designers.

Of course, she hasn’t lost her own sense of style. The classics – button-down shirts, blazers, indigo jeans – that she wore before are all still there, if even more refined.
