Hello-Hello, and welcome to a Tuesday here at the Prepatorium.
We have multiple tidbits to share today, most are of the
hit and split headline only variety, with apologies, we are pressed for time.
1) It isn’t only the summer solstice, today also brings something of a holiday for many:
It’s National Wear Your Lilly Day, and regardless of the weather, Lilly Lovers everywhere were sporting the vibrant hues and prints. Below, the understated elegance our pal Lisagh was going to be wearing.
Here’s a peek at all of the fun back at the Pink Palace (Lilly Pulitzer headquarters).
“With the launch of several children’s lines from mega fashion brands like Fendi, Lanvin and Gucci, however, parental projection is going to a new level, with mini-me’s dressed to impress rather than for recess.”
The piece is accompanied by a number of photos with fashion montages styled many ways, including “Preppy Baby” (L) and “Hippie Baby” (R).
It makes for an interesting read, one we happily recommend; click here for the entire story.
3) It’s Men’s Fashion Week
again and there are reports Gossip Guy Chace Crawford walked the runway for Versace at yesterday’s show in Milan. As best we can tell he did *not* actually model for Versace but he did attend the show.
4) Another Gossip Girl star, Penn Badgley, has been chosen for the lead in one of the upcoming films about musician Jeff Buckley, prompting rumors he may need to leave the show to accommodate the production schedule for the movie. (Gasp.)
5) Theminute-by-minute (almost) schedule for the Canadian portion of the upcoming Royal Tour in Canada is now available, click here to see the details.
What sounds like a must-see exhibit for anyone who is going to be in southern California is now open, “LBD (Little Black Dress) An Homage to Breakfast at Tiffany’s” can be seen at the FIDM Museum.
The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising show isn’t huge, but looks at a subject matter near and dear to our heart, who doesn’t appreciate the beauty of a LBD
… or several? Here is more from All the Rage:
“Standouts include Hubert de Givenchy’s line-for-line re-creation of the “Tiffany’s” dress (on loan from Hubert de Givenchy Couture) and glam takes on the staple from Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Madeleine Vionnet, Valentina and L.A.-based designers Monique Lhuillier, Kevan Hall and Chan Luu.”
We hadn’t realized there were actually 4 of the Givenchy dresses made for Audrey Hepburn. The exhibit runs through August 13, and best of all, it is free. For more you can also visit the FIDM Museum’s Shop page on Facebook.
There is also more about the exhibit at the FIDM blog, it looks like a delightful way to spend one’s lunch hour!
On those lovely images we say goodbye until next time, may your day be as bright and filled with fun as the Lilly everyone is wearing.
