Kate Middleton’s Repeat Outfit Proves That This Classic Never Goes Out Of Style

On Tuesday, Kate Middleton logged onto Zoom to speak with teachers at a local school in honor of Children’s Mental Health Week. For the occasion, the Duchess of Cambridge got thrifty, and chose to recycle a royal blue tweed jacket from New Zealand-based fashion brand Rebecca Taylor. In doing so, she proved that the classic lightweight outerwear option — which was made famous by Chanel in the first half of the 20th century — will never go out of style.

Middleton first wore the tweed jacket, which originally cost $498, to an event at Evelina London Children’s Hospital in February 2017. There, she paired it with the matching knee-length dress made of the same tweed material, a suede clutch purse, coordinating Rupert Sanderson Malory pumps, and sapphire earrings. On Tuesday, she toned down the look, pairing it with rose-gold drop earrings from Missoma (the likes of which cost $110

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.

Some Poles flout virus rules as harder lockdown takes effect

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The Piw Paw club in Warsaw advertised its event as a “Pandemic Fashion Show,” with models wearing “masks from the Spring 2021 collection.”

But even before the show could start on Friday night, police swept in. They cleared away the few customers and arrested the club owner, who has defiantly kept his doors open despite pandemic restrictions banning the sale of alcohol or indoor dining — and despite earlier police raids and detentions.

A raft of new pandemic restrictions took effect in Poland on Saturday to slow the spread of the coronavirus as central Europe has emerged as a global hot spot. But as the club raid shows, authorities already had problems with people flouting the existing rules.

Piw Paw owner, Michal Maciag, says he is close to bankruptcy. He has used different ruses to try to stay open. Though he said he doesn’t consider the

British model Stella Tennant died suddenly on 22 December, her family announced in a statement this week.

The 50-year-old, who had celebrated her most recent birthday only days before on 17 December, had an illustrious career spanning almost 30 years, after she was discovered during an American Vogue call for “non-models” in 1993.

Her striking looks, including a nose ring, which she refused to take out for the original Condé Nast shoot, soon caught the attention of top-flight designers around the world – most notably Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel.

Tennant quickly became the face of the brand, in what was the start of a long relationship with the French fashion house.
