Roll up, roll up! For AW21, Loewe is cancelled. At least that’s the headline in thousands of newspapers that the Spanish house has printed and circulated today in the weekend editions of broadsheets around the world. A specially-produced Loewe newspaper is tucked into the Le Figaro, The New York Times, Le Monde et al with the headline ‘THE LOEWE SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED’ splashed across its front page. By now it will have reached millions of unsuspecting readers. And therein lies the genius of Jonathan Anderson. He’s fashion’s Cassandra; the well-dressed woman’s Warhol. For the last year he’s come up with inventive alternatives to physical fashion shows, and in doing so has broadened the appeal of them, transforming them from industry-insider events that make an fleeting splash on timelines into enjoy-at-home physical artefacts, symbolic tokens of the seismic changes we’ve experienced during lockdown.

These are desperate times for the travel industry, a sector that supports 2.5 millions livelihoods in the UK, and countless more abroad. Having endured a miserable year, hopes were high that 2021, helped by the rollout of the vaccine, would see a return to something approaching normality. Instead, thanks to strict new testing rules, the scrapping of the travel corridors list, and the introduction of quarantine hotels for arrivals from 33 “red list” countries, Britons have never been more fenced in. “We were promised that this vaccine would be the route back to normal,” says Alice Gully, founder of Aardvark Safaris, which, in an ordinary year, sends travellers to more than a dozen African destinations. “They said that once the vulnerable were protected we could open everything up, but now it feels like they are just penalising us
Wearing an off-the-shoulder jacket with matching trousers and long, geometric earrings designed by Kim Jones, Moore opened the show and was later joined by supermodels Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne, and Christy Turlington.
The show also featured appearances by Kate Moss and her 18-year-old daughter Lila.
Last fall, Moore, 58, appeared during Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty fashion show, though her Fendi appearance marks her runway debut.
The Ghost actress had worked with Jones, who is Fendi’s artistic director, before; she posed for a book of portraits in 2019 wearing Jones’s designs.
“Thank you to the wonderful cast that made this
Demi Moore can officially add runway model to her resume after appearing on the Fendi catwalk.
The 58-year-old was just seen joining the flock of celebrities and supermodels who made their way to France for Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, alongside her daughter Scout Willis. Still, nobody could have anticipated that Moore would be the show opener for Kim Jones’ debut collection for the Italian brand.
Moore — an actress, producer and mother-of-three — stole the show in a revealing tuxedo-style top paired with loose-fitting trousers. She also wore a pair of statement earrings that hung well past her shoulders. Although her presence on the runway was a surprise, it wasn’t the first time that Moore has strutted her stuff. In fact,
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and 45 members of his caucus backed an effort to declare the impeachment trial of former President Trump “unconstitutional” on Tuesday. McConnell’s colleague from Kentucky, Senator Rand Paul, introduced a point of order on Tuesday to declare Trump’s impeachment trial unconstitutional on the grounds that a president can’t be impeached once he has left office. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer then moved to table Paul’s point of order, blocking the effort to preemptively invalidate the impeachment trial. McConnell joined all but five Senate Republicans in opposing Schumer, signaling a willingness to entertain the argument that the impending trial is unconstitutional. The point of order resolution effectively forced Republicans to declare on the record whether they consider the impeachment trial constitutional, given that it’s taking place after Trump has left office.
Kathy remembers her daughters’ early love for fashion fondly. “I used to bring them to the fashion shows in Paris when they were, like, 13 and 15,” she says. “I think that’s where they really got a taste and started to see all these beautiful things. And then the designers started to send them things. We had a huge entryway filled with racks of clothes.” Paris, in particular, had an experimental flair. “Paris could go to Patricia Field, find a pair of pants or a skirt, and then she would pair it with one of my good jackets,” Kathy says. “She was quite the character in the day.”
While they all have their own tastes, borrowing from each other’s closets is all but a family tradition. “They make themselves very at home in the closet,” says Kathy, adding that her handbags and jewelry are a particular hit with her daughters.
