Raf Simons‘s highly anticipated debut collection for Calvin Klein was met with rave reviews — and a massive turnout. The hottest ticket at New York Fashion Week (and it’s only day 2!), was scored by notable Hollywood actresses and prominent members of the fashion community. Notably, Gwyneth Paltrow, who hasn’t been to fashion week in “yeeears,” according to her Instagram, sat next to Julianne Moore, with both lovely ladies looking gorgeous in neutral ensembles.
The British actress and Goodwill ambassador donned a Calvin Klein ensemble, which included an off-the-shoulder monochrome top, trousers and a huge skirt, and made her sartorial prowess known. At first it wasn’t clear how her look tied in with this year’s theme - Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology - but once we discovered how her outfit was made, it made perfect sense. Watson didn’t do a Claire Danes and lace her dress with lights that made the entire ensemble glow in the dark, instead she donned a trouser suit made entirely out of plastic bottles - because she’s all eco-friendly like that. Her black and white look was in fact the result of a collaboration between Calvin Klein and Livia Firth (actor Colin Firth’s wife), who’s an environmental activist and founder of Eco Age Ltd.

You’d ask Kim whether, honestly, she ever thinks Kanye’s VMA’s speech was a little too long, and you’d see if Kendall wants to FaceTime Bieber and Gigi. In the long lifespan that has been the Kardashian-Jenner franchise, the 31-year-old Khloé has always felt like the people’s sister — oddly relatable, funny like your best friend, the one keeping everyone in check. Here she is, sailing into Armenia with “the most famous Armenian girl ever” (Kim — in case you were ready to choose another Armenian), jumping into a circle of women performing traditional dance while Kim keeps her distance, smiling politely like a statue.
Fashion has been casually hooking up with online dating apps for a while now, but with Diesel’s foray into Tinder, the relationship’s been made official. Another features a redheaded woman with bedhead wearing a comfy sweater that’s “girlfriend material.” Both illustrate that Diesel’s in on the joke — while also poking fun at it — drawing a connection to the young demographic that views dating apps in this same accepting-slash-mocking attitude. According to Andreas Neophytou, creative director at Spring, the agency Diesel hired, the strategy came from the belief that honesty’s the new form of brave. We are a fashion brand and we can do fashion, but we can also laugh at fashion at the same time.” It’s this that seems to set Diesel apart from its competitors who are simply paying premium rates to appear on the pages of Vogue. Neophytou believes that Diesel’s “got the ability to say so much more than other brands, and I think that allows them to be in these other places, it allows them to have a point of view on different things.” A Calvin Klein ad depicting a threesome and some casual sexting.
