It’s a sad month for high school seniors who have spent years looking forward to their high school proms. Rather than sit around and mope about how they didn’t get the proper farewell to their high school years, high school seniors have gotten resourceful and started hosting virtual proms with their friends and classmates.

Though many young ladies are sequestered in their homes with virtual home-schooling, some young ladies are getting prom dresses for virtual prom parties. Most states have begun partial re-openings, but larger gatherings, such as prom, still aren’t permitted. For those of you with virtual proms planned, Fashion Reverie has curated some great prom dresses for you.

And something special is these uncertain times, on Saturday May 16, Teen Vogue will be hosting a virtual prom. Leading up to this historic event, Teen Vogue will be helping you prep for their virtual prom by featuring daily prom-centric content of DIY tips, styling tips, makeup tutorials, and dance prep. Teen Vogue’s special guest on May 16 include Becky G, Stormy Reid, Ava Max, Lily Collins, Madeleine Petsch, Chloe x Hallie, JoJo, and more. The evening will also include DJ sets, interactive choreography, and custom thematic backdrops.

Goop by Gwyneth Paltrow

Some of the Goop ideas are a bit extreme!! “Vagina” scented candles might be great for a certain kind of customer, but a bit much for some consumers.

Goop’s collection of curated products from luxury beauty and sweaters to crystal-infused beverage, and self motivation books began as a newsletter offering lifestyle advice to readers. Now Goop is an exclusive shopping experience with none other than Gwyneth Paltrow.

Fashion News Alert: Gigi Hadid’s Bundle of Joy, J. Crew Prepares for Bankruptcy, and Andre Leon Talley’s Tell-All Book Release Date Moved Up

Image courtesy of us.hola.com

Well, the rumors are true, Supermodel Gigi Hadid is expecting a child with boyfriend Zayn Malik. She confirmed the news today on a recorded interview on “The Tonight Show.” TMZ had revealed on April 28 that Hadid was 20 weeks pregnant.

“Thank you so much!” she said, as reported on elle.com. “Obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support so …”

“I’m trying [to be present for every part of it],” she continued. “Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and really experience it.”

In February of this year, Gigi Hadid spoke about starting a family and her career in fashion with i-D magazine. “I think that as I get older … well one day I’ll start a family and I don’t know if I will always be modeling. I love the creative side of fashion, it’s so fulfilling. The people I work with make me so happy, I’m so lucky to be around them. But who knows? Maybe I’ll take up full time cooking!”

 The Chiffon Trenches gets an early release date

The release date for Andre Leon Talley’s memoir The Chiffon Trenches has moved from September 2020 to May 19, 2020. After the Daily Mail published some hot passages from the memoir, Random House, the publisher of The Chiffon Trenches, decided to move the release to May 19, due to popular demand.

On Wednesday Talley wrote on Instagram, “I went into the deepest core of my being; my memory is intact. It is a deeply personal story of my life well lived within the world of fashion in all of its most glamorous and cutthroat moments.”

Early reviews of the The Chiffon Trenches detail that Andre Leon Talley spills a lot of insider information about the goings on at Conde Nast and racism within the fashion industry. Talley also contends that his relationship with Anna Wintour soured over time due to his weight challenges, his age, and Wintour feeling that Talley was out of touch with what was cool and on-trend. Wintour told The New York Times the she “wishes Andre only the best.”

Problems for J. Crew

CNBC has reported that the privately held J. Crew may file for bankruptcy as early as this weekend. J. Crew needs to secure $400 million in financing to fund operations in bankruptcy. J. Crew is one of many high-profile retail chains that is on the verge of bankruptcy due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Wall Street Journal, as of February 2020, J. Crew had over 1.7 billion dollars in debt. J. Crew has been struggling under a heavy debt load for some time.

In 2020 J. Crew attempted to lessen its debt by leveraging a 2020 IPO of its popular Madewell brand. However, in March the IPO did not go through.

Crew currently has 182 stores, 140 Madewell stores, and 170 J. Crew Factory stores as of the beginning of March.

Justin Alexander Signature Bridal Spring 2021

Is this the time to plan wedding nuptials? With the COVID-19 pandemic wrecking financial, health, and emotional havoc on the US economy and healthcare systems, one wonders if this time is appropriate for planning a wedding. Though this could and should be an individual choice, the viability of wedding nuptials seems to be unclear at this junction.

Still, consider that most weddings are planned well over a year in advance. So, if that is true, perhaps, the COVID-19 pandemic will have been resolved by April/May 2021 or at the very least calmed down enough so that friends and loved ones can safely attend a wedding.

With that theory in mind, it should be no surprise that the bridal industry has moved ahead with promoting bridal collections for the spring 2021 season. And though New York International Bridal Week spring 2021 season was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, many bridal designers forged ahead with digital presentations.

Justin Alexander was one such bridal designer. For his spring 2021 bridal collection, Justin Alexander was inspired by the sleek and sultry vibe of 1930’s jazz. And Justin Alexander expanded this inspiration by naming the bridal gowns in this spring 2010 collection after famous jazz artists, namely Dinah Washington, Duke Ellington, Peggy Lee, Count Basie, Billie Holiday, Dexter Coleman, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Charlie Parker, Etta James, and many others.

Like the sounds of the jazz era, this season’s styles are full of depth and range- featuring mixed textures, unique and ornate beading, and soft colors. The silhouettes are dramaticshowcasing sparkle details, large bows, plunging necklines, and low backs. Clean gowns and pantsuits rise up to another level with modern accessories, detachable elements, and floral details. This collection is a medley of elevated, edgy, chic, and fashion-forward designs.

Additionally, what Justin Alexander does so expertly in this collection is combining classic bridal silhouettes with a modern sensibility. And like the sassiness and exuberance of 1930s jazz, this spring 2021 bridal collection expresses a modern brides’ penchant for individuality, effervescence, and modern charm. This collection also has something that will appeal to brides from difference age demographics. From those younger brides that may want to reveal more skin and show off those svelte physiques to those more seasoned bridal consumers who are looking for something classic and sophisticated, this spring 2021 bridal collection does not disappoint. Bravo Justin!!

Use This Pandemic Downtime to Detox Your Hair

Image courtesy of pinterest.com

We have always known that excessive heat and daily styling is bad for hair. So, while stuck inside due to the COVID-19 pandemic, take this time to detox from everyday essential styling in favor for going au natural.

According to Nicki Bianco, Creative Director at Saints & Sinners, “This has been a much- needed rest and detox for most people’s overworked strands. The lack of hair coloring, chemical services, heat styling, and environmental damage will surely have restorative effects. Chemical services and hot tools can strip the hair of protein and moisture, making the hair dry, brittle and fragile.”

Sal Misseri, owner of Reverie Salon adds that, “one thing people may not even realize is that environmental factors play a big part in the health of your hair and skin. There are so many toxins and pollutants in the air especially in a big city, and all of that can build up on the hair.”

If you haven’t already, take a break from the heat

“Staying away from heat styling gives your hair cuticles a chance to calm down and heal without being blasted daily by heat and styling tools,” shares Andrea Jaclyn, stylist at BOMANE Salon in Los Angeles. Noting that for people with wavy hair, thanks to putting down the blow dryer/hair straightener/ curling iron, you’ll “notice them becoming more uniform and shinier.”

Misseri also mentions that pre-coronavirus quarantine, most people were rushing in the mornings and would, “… turn the heat up on their hot tools and over style the top layer, and front of the hair. Keeping heat styling to twice a week can show vast improvements to the cuticle of the hair. If you choose to heat style, use a heat protectant, like Davines’ MELU Hair Shield.”

But more and more people have swapped not just their beauty routine, but their routines in general. Which made us wonder if there were any negatives to this new normal?

Wash your hair a little less often

“My downfall has been washing every day, since I’ve had time for at home workouts,” shares Jaclyn. “You must at least rinse the scalp after excessive sweating as the hormones released can cause thinning. A few days in I realized I had not even let it dry completely before it was wet again. The hair is weak when wet. You want to make sure you’re not constantly keeping it in a hair mask or wet all the time. It can cause breakage or a weakened cuticle.” Jaclyn recommends keeping your scalp and hair clean with Davines SOLU shampoo, stating that “it cleans beautifully and leaves hair silky unlike any other “detox, clarifying” shampoo, plus it is color safe.”

But it’s not just people sweating out the cabin fever, Misseri adds that a lot of the population is on a regular basis “over washing” their hair causing the scalp to dry out. “[which] in turn causing overactive oil production in order to create balance. Many people then see “greasy” hair and begin a vicious over washing cycle.” Suggesting that if you’re not already doing it, this is the perfect opportunity to give your hair a break, washing every other day or even every two days.

“… In fact, the less frequently you wash your hair the better, our natural oils from our scalp are full of benefits for our strands,” shares Bianco.   “Products like Saints & Sinners Velvet Divine Moisture Shampoo actually contain anti-friction ingredients so when you do shampoo, there is no fraying of the hair fiber and strands are protected.”

Detox, don’t neglect

“I could see the stress of this situation leaving a lot of people in a “what is the point” kind of mood.” Misseri shares. Which could cause people to not wash their hair enough or leave it unbrushed in a ponytail or top knot. But Misseri warns that “build-up of oil/sebum can cause clogged pores and result in lack of hair growth.”

Also, it’s so important to brush your hair. “Brushing the scalp and hair is a really great way to stimulate hair growth and distribute those necessary oils.” Misseri warns that leaving your hair in a hat or ponytail can also cause damage, “it’s important to have a ponytail holder that isn’t too tight or rough and constantly in the same spot which would cause breakage. Wearing a hat too often will not allow the scalp to breathe.”

And you might want to swap your pillowcase too!  “People are also likely staying in bed longer, and rough cotton pillowcases can dry out the hair and skin and cause hair to tangle and lock.” Misseri suggests a silk pillowcase to keep your tresses in tip top shape.

Want to speed up the detoxing process? Try a hair mask

To make the most of your beauty revive, Bianco recommends brushing through your hair with a soft bristle brush to “… pull down the oils from your scalp onto the rest of your hair strands.” Also stating how helpful a hair mask can be recommending Saints & Sinners Velvet Divine Hair Masque to help restore hair, which you can even leave on as you sleep.

Misseri uses Davines’ Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle Mask or The Quick Fix Circle.

Recommending that you use a wide tooth comb with the mask on to distribute the mask evenly while detangling. But if you want something you can make at home, Misseri recommends a mixture of egg, avocado, and coconut/olive oil to restore moisture.

Walking out of the quarantine with healthier hair is as easy as washing it less, staying away from unnecessary heat, brushing it out, and avoiding extra breakage. Once you see the results, you might want to give your normal hair routine a “detox” a few times a year!

ARTISTIX Fall 2020

Is ARTISTIX campaigning to be the brand of choice for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. If so, they have an early start and their fall 2020 collection should put them in the running.

With ARTISTIX’s “Adventure” collection, founder Greg Polisseni and creative director Andy Hilfiger looked to winter slopes and skiwear for inspiration. This 2020 fall collection was an “Adventure” into winter wonderland seen through the lens of luxury streetwear.

I’m so proud of the collection that we premiered for F/W 2020,” said Polisseni. “The pieces incorporate the print of my painting Stars & Stripes which makes this collection that much more important to me. Stars & Stripes was created as a symbol of unity which is portrayed through the styles. I want to especially thank Klarna and Style360 for partnering with us for this show, we couldn’t have asked for a more prepared team!”

Since 2016, with Andy Hilfiger manning the creative helm of ARTISTIX, the brand has been making inroads in combining American streetwear with a rock n’ roll sensibility. Interestingly, this combined design aesthetic is rarely, if at all, associated with skiwear. However, for this fall 2020 collection Andy Hilfiger found an ingenious way for ARTISTIX’s design aesthetic to work on wintry slopes.

This collection is also infused with inspiration from Greg Polisseni’s well-known  painting Stars and Stripes. The shades of red and blue of Stars and Stripes was incorporated into ARTISTIX’s signature camo pattern. All tying in the brand’s aesthetic of art, soul, and rock n’ roll.

“We’re like a band and the audience are our fans. We’re all about the music, art, and fashion” said Andy Hilfiger after the presentation. “We brought the Artistix lifestyle to everyone that came to the presentation and now they can bring the vibe with them to the ski slopes.”
