NYFW, Academy Awards Nominees, Eileen Gu & WINDOW SHOPPING
Clockwise from Top.
Things finished up in NYC this week. There were parties. And photos. Peter Do got a lot of attention, especially for this mock neck cape piece. As did The Collinas: a parody (homage?) to The Hills, released by Collina Strada at the Angelika.
Meanwhile, Wes Gordon’s Carolina Herrera collection was stunning - chock full of color, tulle, bows, and this saffron dress:
Raquel is already asking me how we can buy this.
Lastly, LaQuan Smith opened his show with Julia Fox the day she broke up with Kanye. We talk more about Fox, her denim look and her raccoon eyes on our podcast.
The Academy Awards presentation will be at the end of March, with Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes hosting.
We’re trying to make our way through most of the nominees for this year. Dune? The Lost Daughter? Spencer? Check, Check, Check. This week: Encanto, Power of the Dog and Nightmare Alley. Licorice Pizza, sadly, is not available for streaming yet.
Until our applications for the academy get accepted (someone please nominate us!) and they start sending us screeners, we’ll be watching these one by one on our streaming services.
The Winter Olympics are wrapping up this weekend, and we have to say we weren’t really paying attention. The Beijing area receives almost no natural snow, and the mountains where some of the events were held are positively tiny - Lake Placid-esque!
One interesting thread we did follow was Eileen Gu’s performance (3 medals, 2 Gold and 1 Silver). She is a freestyle skier born in California but representing China. Her mother is from China, and Gu speaks fluent Mandarin. She is starting at Stanford this Fall, and of course they announced her SAT scores on live TV (1580!).
Her success and access to both the Chinese and American markets have allowed her to represent a slew of high profile brands - Tiffany, Louis Vuitton and many others. It will be interesting to see what she does over the next few years, with four years until the next Winter Olympics in Milan.
I can’t believe this hasn’t sold out yet!
Chris & Raquel
