Consider denim. It’s sturdy. Loyal. Cleans up nice. So we’re giving denim—in all of its forms—the credit it deserves by declaring it Denim Week here on Kempt…
Founder of Elite modeling agency, father of Julian and lover of Stephanie Seymour, a former Miss Denmark and many, many others has passed away.
Last week, we heard from someone, who heard from someone else, who heard from her hairstylist, that Kate Moss will be toplessly gracing the cover of Playboy’s upcoming January 2014 issue.
You know, all reliable sources.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re very excited about it. Though it is kind of a long time to wait for a girl who hasn’t exactly been nudity-averse for the majority of her career.
What you wear to bed can often feel like an afterthought…
But not today.
Because today we’re giving sleepwear, in all of its glorious forms (including Marilyn Monroe’s lack thereof), its proper due. And after a painstakingly thorough search—no movie set, red carpet or private boudoir went unturned—we managed to assemble a definitive list of the 64 greatest moments in pajama-dom. That’s right, we found every last one of them.
Instagram is great for a lot of reasons—we’re sure the creators can think of about a billion, but here’s our favorite: celebrities have finally started getting in on the action. And models. And the like.
So we took the liberty of combing through some very good-looking feeds to bring you the most attractive and spectacular of the bunch. (You can thank us later.)
The former 49ers quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer has just emerged as one of the new faces of Uniqlo, headlining a motley crew of skaters, bloggers and singers who have mostly San Franciscan ties (the Japanese superstore is finally making the westward push in early October).
In addition to the obligatory tech-y plugs (sounds like he’s done his homework), he mentions his penchant for “an interesting collar, or a pocket that’s different,” which could mean there’s hope yet for Joe Cool’s style—we’ve been wary ever since he made the baffling decision to endorse Shape-ups (a long line of questionable judgment we assume began when he agreed to those two fateful years in Kansas City). But we’ve got to think this is a step in the right direction.
This snap comes from a sneak peek at an upcoming editorial on our favorite rebel-prep-wear label, Boast. It comes courtesy of Jake Davis, who directed the shoot (and who’s teamed up with Adrianne Ho to brilliant success before). Get a better look at the preview of the beach-traipsing photography of Boast’s new collection over here. (Though we’ll admit, Ms. Ho really steals the show.)
Tom Ford unveiled his fall/winter lookbook this morning, complete with the usual furs, scarves and playboy aviators. But this time, something was different.
The clothes are still great (at this point, that goes without saying), but we couldn’t help but notice that nearly half of the models were rocking a single hand on their hip—known to laymen as the “little teapot” pose.
To break the pose down in technical terms, this model’s right hand, propped on his hip, would represent his “handle,” while his left hand dangling free would represent his “spout.”
Sadly, short and stout models are still underrepresented within the industry.
We’ve been taking a mostly hands-off approach to Milan Fashion Week, but the Trussardi presentation finally gave us something we can whole-heartedly endorse: models carrying bottles.
Granted, it doesn’t hurt that this one already looks like a disinherited racecar driver on vacation—but something about the magnum of bubbly nails down the reckless abandon of it all. Something about the devilish grin, the CHIPs shades and overflowing pocket square tell you, wherever this gentleman’s headed, it’s going to involve some champagne.
We bet it was a hell of an after-party.
The Times’ latest exhausting entry into body-watching has been bouncing in and out of our tipline all weekend. The gist is this: the emaciated look is out, and the gents you see on the runway and in GQ are getting gradually beefier.
It’s the kind of advice that’s really only useful to industry folks, but since the Times Style Section is hardly a trade pub, we’d like to tackle this one head-on. If you were considering applying this wisdom to your own life, now might be a good time to back away from the newspaper.
