Videography: Mariah Carey

Edited by

Mariah Carey is a lot of things. A diva, first and foremost. A loon. A mother to dem babies. A Jenny Craig spokeswoman. A Home Shopping Networker. But a fashion icon? Eh. When she first whistle-registered her way onto the music scene in 1990, she was fresh-faced, curly-haired and — style-wise — pretty boring. As the 90s went on, she shed her good girl image and most of her clothes to become the scantily-clad chanteuse we know and love today. For this edition of Videography, we emancipate Mimi’s style evolution through her best and most iconic music videos.

Videography: Britney Spears

Edited by

It’s Britney, bitch. The lady Spears shimmied along in 1998, following in the syncopated dancesteps of Janet and Madonna to become a pop culture icon in her own right. Like those enterprising queens, Brit employed a series of reinventions throughout her career and suffered a few bumps along the way, but she’s back and still churning out the hits nearly 15 years later. Let’s take a tour of Britney Spears’ greatest — and most questionable — video looks.

Frock of Ages: A History of Eco-Fashion

Edited by

Eco-fashion as we know it developed in the 1960s thanks to those damned dirty hippies and the burgeoning environmentalist movement. However, the history of sustainable style can be traced back to the 18th century when hand-crafted silk garments were “meticulously cared-for and altered for continued wear,” according to the Museum at FIT‘s Eco-Fashion: Going Green exhibit from two years ago. That exhibit explored the often contentious relationship between fashion and the environment and how it has developed over the past few centuries.

Halston Making Yet Another Comeback

Edited by

Maybe he’s just beating a dead horse, but Ben Malka, the newest chairman and CEO of Halston, is determined to revive the iconic brand. Malka has shaken up the way Halston runs by moving the studios to Los Angeles where they will focus on the Heritage line left so carelessly behind by Sarah Jessica Parker, with plans to relaunch the Halston runway line next year. And unlike the past, money will cease to be an issue. According to Malka, “We are very well-funded, so I don’t have to worry about that. The money was put in by myself and my partners in a big way…The amount is enough for us to screw up for a long time.”

Bookclubbin’: Maxim’s: Mirror of Parisian Life

Edited by

Think of Maxim’s as the Studio 54 of the 1890s. But instead of Halston, Liza and coke, there’s Charles Frederick Worth, famously infamous courtesan Liane de Pougy and opium. That magically hedonistic time known as the Belle Epoque in France saw the establishment of a pillar of Parisian society, Maxim’s. More than a restaurant, it was the social meeting ground for generations of artists, nobles, diplomats, stars and folks of less reputable distinction. It has survived two world wars, multiple owners and Mick Jagger showing up in sneakers and 120 years later it’s still the place to see and be seen. Assouline’s Maxim’s: Mirror of Parisian Life by Jean-Pascal Hesse examines the people, the historical and cultural events and of course the food that distinguish the rich history of the restaurant at 3 rue Royal.
