New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn doesn’t have many friends left in the industry, it seems, after a series of scathing critiques about anyone who rubs her the wrong way. And these days, any which way is the wrong way.
The 90s have been coming back in a huge way as of late, from the re-emergence of our favorite supers to MTV’s House of Style. And as children of that era, we are fully embracing the reminiscences. Enter the Opening Ceremony Olivia Ankle Strap Wedge.

If you’re fashion savvy on any level, you know who Simon Doonan is. The visual charisma he brings to the windows at Barney’s resonates for every style maven from the posh women uptown to the wild experimentalists downtown. Like many icons and influencers tend to do, he started sharing his views with the world through books. His sixth literary installment Gay Men Don’t Get Fat launched this past weekend, and Simon held several speaking engagements (including a very chic breakfast with moi) where he divulged the secret world of the stereotypically stylish gays to audiences young and old. The book’s 60,000 perfect words diffuse and dive into achetypes of all sorts – from the gays to the straight men to the French women – and leave you laughing out loud…in my case embarrassingly so whilst alone in the Grey Dog Café. Here are some insights he shared, preparing us for what was to come in the book.
Simon Doonan doesn’t get fat. Else he would not fit into that Alaïa he’s been eyeing and dying for. We found out all of his favorite designers this morning we met up and fêted today’s release of his new book, Gay Men Don’t Get Fat. We also learned that the gayest food on the planet is inarguably a macaroon; a burrito, quite possibly the straightest. Anyway, back to the clothing he fits into being so gay and skinny. Meet the best designers in Simon Doonan’s eyes.
