STANDING OVATION TWICE OVER. MEADHAM KIRCHHOFF FALL 2012 JUST DID IT FOR ME. IN LOVE

Why the standing ovation? Because, in a world of high glamour, The gothic, The preppy, The seduction, the “untouchable” fashion, The playing it safe for the majority of consumerism. Not, 25 minutes after posting ” I miss the kinderwhores of the 90’s” on my facebook wall. I stumble across Meadham Kirchhoff’s Autumn 2012 line. And, let me just say. It’s cheeky, Flashy, Fun, irresistible and contagious. Sure, you may not like the complete ensemble- But, It always comes down to separates in a fashion line anyhow. If you are into Japanese Harajuku, 90’s Betsey Johnson, 90’s club kids, 90’s candy kids- feast your eyes. If I hadn’t thrown away, by accident, a box of photos from my teenage years in the 90’s, you would know that my way of dress was just as out there as this as I would be able to show you- this was Jovan in the 90’s. I always said I brought Harajuku to Lewis and Clark High School. Brings me back. Oh the memories.

YOUR FAVORITE FASHION DESIGNER IS FROM WHERE?? REALLY?! CHECK IT OUT.

Posted in CELEBRITY, DESIGNERS, EDUCATION, EVENT, FASHION, FASHION HOUSE, ICON, STAR, STYLE, wikipedia with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2012 by jovan townsend

Have you ever wondered where your fashion designer is from? Have you ever wondered where this said designers brain hails from?  I stumbled onto this page doing research, and it shocked me. For one,  one of  ,my favorite designers is Rick Owens, as many know, and with his design aesthetic you would think he would be from, let’s say, Paris. Wrong.  Or did you know that the wildly creative twin duo Dean and Dane Caten- The masterminds behind the insanely profitable line DSQUARED were from Canada??  probably not…

I know a lot of people who are asked ” Who is your current favorite designer?” and respond with a fashion house such as Dior or Burberry. Truth is, is that these are major fashion houses and each fashion house has an actual designer. We all know that currently Raf Simons is designer for Dior and Christopher Bailey is mastermind behind the wildly orgasmic Burberry Prorsum line…..  So. knowing designer trivia is a good thing .

Check out this designer location wikipedia profile I found.. It just may shock you. Or not. Its still a good reference point.

LADY VICTORIA HERVEY ROCKED THE OSCARS. GLITZ, GLAM AND BAM- PERFECTION.

Posted in 2012 Oscars, ART, CELEBRITY, EVENT, FASHION, HAIR, ICON, Lady Victoria Hervey, PHOTO, STAR, STYLE, STYLIST with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2012 by jovan townsend

If you want to talk about a true unique Lady, true to the word, taking the red carpet by storm. Then one should check out the one and only Lady Victoria Hervey-  Not only is she royalty, she is also a Red Carpet mistress that happens to be everywhere.  A lady with her own fashion devices, her own fashion happenings..  Lady Victoria does her own thing when it comes to Red Carpet styling. And guess what, It works. The 2012 Oscar season proved my point.  She opted to steer clear of the normal Red Carpet designer’s Lhuillier, Versace Couture, Armani Prive, Valentino and Zac Posen to name a few .. She went with 2 gowns that stunned and were both unique in their own right.

The first gown was by the insanely gorgeous BASIL SODA, if you are not aware of Basil Soda and his French Haute Couture designs- I would definitely check this line out, Its one of the hottest Tickets in town for Paris fashion week, and was worn to The Weinstein Company Pre Oscar Party at the insanely Exclusive Soho House- West Hollywood.   Hair by Celebrity stylist Jovan Townsend.

 

 

The Second gown which was worn to the infamously hard to get into Elton Johns Aids Benefit Oscar 2012 viewing party, was designed by another obscure choice, Irina Shabayeva, If you are not aware of Irina- check out Project Runways 6th season- this dress was a metallic Stunner!   Hair by Celebrity Stylist Jovan Townsend.

 


 

Zelda Kaplan Collapses At Joanna Mastroianni Fashion Show, Reportedly Dies

Posted in ART, CELEBRITY, EVENT, FASHION, HAIR, ICON, PHOTO, STAR, STYLE, STYLIST with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 15, 2012 by jovan townsend

 

Zelda Kaplan, who celebrated her 95th birthday this past summer, collapsed while sitting front row at the Joanna Mastroianni fall 2012 show at Lincoln Center Wednesday afternoon.

The Post is reporting that Kaplan has passed away; we will update this story upon further confirmation.

According to the New York Postwitnesses saw Kaplan “slumped forward” once the show had already begun. Security rushed to her aid, carrying her out of the show where EMTs gave her CPR and put her in a hospital-bound ambulance.

Prior to her collapse, the bespectacled fashion maven was photographed smiling in her front row seat (see photos below). Kaplan is one of the stars of Ari Cohen’s Advanced Style blog, which features fabulous fashionistas in their 70s, 80s and 90s.

Known for African-inspired hats and prints as well as her round sunglasses, Kaplan is a world traveler who has journeyed to countries such as Ghana, Ethiopia and Nigeria for both fashion inspiration and women’s activism. According to the New York Times, she discussed issues such as a woman’s right of inheritance and female genital mutilation with the African villagers she visited.

Kaplan was wearing one of her African-inspired outfits on Wednesday at Joanna Mastroianni’s show, the same red and black ensemble she wore last April when she was filmed for Advanced Style. In the video, she imparted these words of wisdom: “One must be interested in the world, not oneself only.”

Our thoughts are with Kaplan and her family, friends and loyal fashion fans. Check back here for news on Kaplan’s condition.

Below, a photo of Kaplan taken on Wednesday before the collapse, along with photos of her previous appearances.

RICARDO TISCI BETTER GET IT TOGETHER. THE HOUSE OF GIVENCHY MEN HAS NEVER LOOKED SO, UM. BAD?!

Posted in ART, CELEBRITY, EVENT, FASHION, HAIR, ICON, PHOTO, STAR, STYLE, STYLIST with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2012 by jovan townsend

I have always been a believer in the house that Is Givenchy since Ricardo Tisci took control in 2005. I have loved mostly every piece give or take. But, this Fall 2012 Mens Collection looks more like a Hot Topic Couture line if they had one.. hmm.. not a bad idea really. L-O-L. Than the typical Givenchy show stopper of a show. Ok. Ok. I may be just shocked that a few pieces made it down the runway that shouldn’t have. Like this printed shirt thing paired with a man skirt/ kilt- which I can get with. But, the shirt thing.. NOT ON THE RUNWAY!!! sorry. no can do…  Well. I really dont do print anything. But, what I do know, is that you should never have T-shirts stroll down that catwalk if it is not of a sheer content blazing with silver threading and beading.

And, yes. there are pieces that I love- Like the Russian inspired Jackets. The boots (want!). And, ummm.. well. thats it. sadly.
