Deepika Padukone or Mindy Kaling; Who wore the cape sleeved Alex Perry gown better?

With the world shutting down one city at a time, there has not been much to see when it comes to fashion. Fashion weeks to street style, everything has been quite a downer in the past year. Now that things are starting to get back to normal, we’re seeing more and more celebrities adapting to the new way of life. Even award shows are now being held virtually which means, the fashion industry is slowly starting to get back on track. This brings us to the newest faceoff moment we spotted at yesterday’s SAG awards held in the US where actress Mindy Kaling wore the same Alex Perry gown as Deepika Padukone. 

Just in the beginning of 2020, we saw Deepika Padukone posing around in the royal blue number. The cape sleeved gown perfectly hugged her curves while a knotted twist detail along the front cinched her waist. The

Live Events Are Back. How Big Should Brands Go? | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

Soo Youn Lee, a Los Angeles-based creator and model, was among the 165 influencers invited to Revolve Farmer’s Market, a three-day event held at the end of March in Los Angeles. The online fashion retailer’s first major in-person brand event since the pandemic began a year ago, the outdoor market with 15 booths featured 50 Revolve-approved brands, including private labels like Lovers & Friends and LPA, with a focus on Black and women-owned labels. Each stall — plus 75,000 flowers Revolve had planted for the activation — was designed to be a perfect Instagram backdrop.

“Obviously the last year has been all Instagram Live, and we saw great success with that, but it just doesn’t have the exact same kind of brand reach as we did with our [live] events that we obviously have become known for,” said Revolve chief brand officer Raissa Gerona.

#RevolveInBloom, the activation’s hashtag, generated more

THIS is the season you prefer the most, based on your zodiac sign

A particular season might appeal to you more than others. There are some who prefer warm days, basking in the sun, floating around in sundresses and flip flops while there are others who prefer to stay cosy on a winter night in the comfort of their house whilst sipping on hot chocolate. Either way, there are fun ways to enjoy both seasons with equal enthusiasm. 

Some revel the most in winter while others blossom in summer. As we go through several transitions in the weather, our mood swings and behaviour also change rapidly, adjusting with the transition. There are some seasons in which you might thrive the most, while the other days you feel down and low. Winter could be a time for hibernation for some people, while others might be enjoying having fun in the snow. There is never an end to this debate as to which season is

Ulla Johnson created a new supply chain from scratch

At Ulla Johnson’s recent fashion show, models walked through the empty halls of Lincoln Center in the designer’s signature intricately patterned, ruffled gowns, as ethereal chamber music played. Johnson’s designs are inspired by her travels, but what most people don’t realize is that the garments themselves are made by women she has met in small villages all over the world.

Johnson launched her label in 1998 and quickly made a name for herself for her feminine, bohemian aesthetic. A-listers love the brand, with everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Jennifer Lawrence to Greta Gerwig counting themselves as fans.
