We’ve had Tamsin Cooper create a line for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Backes & Strauss partner with the English National Ballet, and now, Sarah Jessica Parker and contemporary fine jeweller Cindy Chao have teamed up to create the 2014 Black Label Masterpiece Ballerina Butterfly brooch to benefit the New York City Ballet.
   It’s not quite a full line: this is a one-off to be auctioned by Sotheby’s Hong Kong this October, at the Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite Sale. However, it was created with the New York City Ballet, on which Parker serves as a director, in mind.
   Parker and Chao connected during Chao’s 2011 Masterpiece Exhibition in Beijing. In 2012, when Chao opened her Beijing boutique, at which Parker was guest of honour, that the pair would collaborate on a piece for charity.
   The collaboration, which took place over the last two years, saw them review sketches, wax models and gemstones together.
   The brooch has a titanium and 18 ct gold body. It features a cushion-cut fancy brown diamond weighing 26­·27 ct, three rough brown diamond slices weighing a total of 47·71 ct, three pieces of conch pearls weighing a total of 7·25 ct, surrounded by 4,698 diamonds and fancy-coloured diamonds weighing a total of 98·09 ct.
   It is meant to be signify the beauty, structure, strength and movement of a ballerina, and can be worn either right-side-up or upside-down.
   It will be first shown in Paris during haute couture fashion week, from which Lucire will report next week. It will then travel throughout Asia, before heading to New York and Hong Kong.
   â€˜I have had the great pleasure of knowing Cindy and her work for several years, and it has been an incredibly special experience to collaborate with her,’ said Parker. ‘Cindy’s jewellery designs are true works of art; they capture the eye and imagination in a memorable way. I am so pleased to partner with her on this project, which benefits the wonderful work of the New York City Ballet, an organization that is close to my heart.’
   Chao has created a Black Label Masterpiece Butterfly each year since 2008, to symbolize her own metamorphosis, says her company, Cindy Chao—The Art Jewel, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
   â€˜Sarah Jessica and I are two very different creative minds sharing the same artistic vision and passion,’ said Chao in a release. ‘She truly appreciates the essence and soul of my creations, and I admire her innovative yet classic view on fashion and style. My annual butterflies carry special meaning for me. Collaborating with Sarah Jessica for a cause we both deeply care for and believe in makes this Ballerina Butterfly all the more special.’
   The net proceeds from the auction will go to the ballet company.

It’s day ten and the penultimate day of the Festival de Cannes.
   Clouds of Sils Maria, the new film with Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, Chloë Grace Moretz, Johnny Flynn and Hanns Zischler, directed by Olivier Assayas, had positive reviews and was regarded as a strong conclusion to the films in competition at Cannes.
   Binoche plays an ageing star, Maria, with Stewart as her PA, and Moretz a young actress who has been cast in a remake of the film that brought Maria her original fame. In the remake, Maria is asked to play the older lover.
   Assayas comfortably directs the film focusing on the dynamics between the three principal actors, and especially between Binoche and Stewart.
   Among our videos are star Chloë Grace Moretz, on making fun of Hollywood and subverting the genre, and the red-carpet première for the film, which features Stewart, Binoche, Moretz, Assayas, and Quentin Tarantino, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Amy Willerton and Bianca Balti at the Palais des Festivals.
   Ken Loach, who had his Jimmy’s Hall première on day nine, is interviewed below on his work, while Tarantino, in Cannes celebrating 20 years since Pulp Fiction brought him to prominence when he won the Palme d’Or and the 50th anniversary of Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western genre, talks about writing his forthcoming film.
   In addition to Sils Maria and Pulp Fiction, the cameras caught Canadian singer Kiesza (with two Montblanc full pavé bracelets in white–red gold and diamonds and a full pavé ring), Araya A. Hargate, Cláudia Vieira and Li Yuchun (李宇春).

L’Oréal Paris’s Inside Cannes series shows behind-the-scenes footage from its ambassadors at the Festival de Cannes: Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, Gong Li, Jane Fonda, Julianne Moore, Zoe Saldana, Karlie Kloss, Laetitia Casta, Inès de la Fressange, Liya Kebede, Leïla Bekhti, Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly, Léa Seydoux, Taís Araújo, and Grazi Massafera.
   The spokeswomen get ready at the Hôtel Martinez, shoot advertisements for the L’Oréal Paris Cannes specials (two Color Riche eye shadows and Volume Million Lashes, donned by many of the brand’s faces during the festival), having their photos taken against the L’Oréal Paris wall, and getting chauffeured in Nissan Skylines—Infiniti Q50s in Europe—to their red-carpet appearances and after-parties.

Getting the Blake Lively, Karlie Kloss, Gong Li, Zoe Saldana, Laetitia Casta looks from Cannes, day one

As a regular sponsor—we believe this is the 17th year where it has been the official make-up brand of the Festival de Cannes—L’Oréal Paris ambassadors were out in force on day one, with Blake Lively getting the most attention of the six who walked the red carpet. Gong Li, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda, Karlie Kloss and Laetitia Casta also appeared for their fans.
   Make-up artist Karim Rahman created looks for five of the L’Oréal faces, with the Volume Million Lashes the most notable product of the festival. It’s one of three products that L’Oréal Paris has released for Cannes 2014, the other two being the Color Riche eye shadows, no. 600, Opalescent, and no. 601, Soleil Levant (Sunrise).
   The four key products for each face are shown below, each with tips from Rahman. For Lively, Rahman notes, ‘It’s important to apply eyeshadow as close to the lash line as possible. Applying it right to the edges is key to achieving the perfect result.’
   His tip for Casta’s look: ‘For long wear without fail, powder your lips before applying your Infaillible colour and finish with the fixing balm.’
   For Saldana: ‘An exceptionally delicate tip for a perfectly precise line. The eyes are styled to the milimetre.’
   For Li: ‘For a more intense look, you can use a liner on the inner part of the bottom eyelid, but also on the upper eyelid, in-between lashes. The result is stunning!’
   Finally, for Kloss: ‘Work the texture of the eye shadow with your fingers to create a look that captivates and radiates sparkling pearly shimmers.’

Time’s 100 most influential has Beyoncé covering; Benedict Cumberbatch, Phoebe Philo, Lydia Ko make the cut

Lucire staff/10.04

The cover for this year’s Time 100, listing the news magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world, goes to Beyoncé.
   On sale today, the 11th annual edition also features Robert Redford, Mary Barra and Jason Collins on covers within the publication.
   It also has a number of guest contributors, writing about those who feature: James Franco on Marina Abramović, Barack Obama on Pope Francis, Pelé on Cristiano Ronaldo, Stella McCartney on Phoebe Philo, Colin Firth on Benedict Cumberbatch, John Cassidy on Andrew Haldane, Elif Shafak on Abdullah Gul, Madeleine Albright on Vladimir Putin, Hillary Clinton on John Kerry, Lupita Nyong’o on Steve McQueen, and Christine Lagarde on Janet Yellen.
   Forty-one women are honoured, including Amy Adams, Mary Barra, Lydia Ko, Megyn Kelly, Miley Cyrus, Angela Merkel, Serena Williams, Robin Wright, Kerry Washington, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and Jenji Kohan.
   President Obama appears for the ninth time, and other repeat honorees include Hillary Clinton, Angela Merkel, Xi Jinping, Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin, and Jeff Bezos.
   As with this magazine’s ‘newsmakers’ list, Edward Snowden makes the cut in Time. Jack Ma of Alibaba, which was honoured by the Medinge Group in its seventh Brands with a Conscience awards in 2010, has also come to the attention of Time.
   Obama writes of the Pope: ‘Rare is the leader who makes us want to be better people. Pope Francis is such a leader … Pope Francis reminds us in ways that words alone cannot that no matter our station in life, we are bound by moral obligations to one another.’
   Franco says of Abramović: ‘I trust Marina to carve the artist out of her celebrity and use her celebrity to bring what she stands for into the here and now, looking straight into the eyes of all of us, strangers still, but courageous, curious, inspired, creative participants afterward.’
   McCartney says of Philo: ‘One of the few female designers, she celebrates the simple and champions the quality and reality of a woman’ wardrobe. When people invest in her work, they have it for life. One of the things we share is the reality that the clothes we design are actually worn.’
   And Firth writes of Cumberbatch: ‘It’s rare to the point of outlandish to find so many variables in one actor, including features which ought to be incompatible: vulnerability, a sense of danger, a clear intellect, honesty, courage—and a rather alarming energy. I take no pleasure in feeling humbled, but there’s no getting around it. He must be stopped.’
   Time editor Nancy Gibbs says, ‘The Time 100 is a list of the world’s most influential men and women, not its most powerful … The vast majority of this year’s roster reveals that while power is certain, influence is subtle. Power is a tool, influence is a skill … If there is a common theme in many of the tributes, it’s the eagerness to see what some engineer, actor, leader or athlete will do next. As much as this exercise chronicles the achievements of the past year, we also focus on figures whose influence is likely to grow, so we can look around the corner to see what is coming.’
   A full list, including tributes, videos and photos, can be seen here. Time also has an interactive grid of the 100 honorees at this link, and a Facebook influence map here.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York, fall–winter 2014–15, day four videos

Lucire staff/9.46

Pin It

After day four at the New York Fashion Week fall–winter 2014–15 collections, we have videos from David Tlale, Katya Zol, Lela Rose, Custo Barcelona, Parkchoonmoo, Georgine, Vivienne Tam, DKNY and Meskita. Today (day five), we’ll follow Mathieu Mirano, Caroline Herrera, Noon by Noor, Angel Sanchez, Dennis Basso, Milly by Michelle Smith, Katya Leonovichii and Reem Acra, which you can catch on our live player beginning at 9 a.m. EST.
   This was the day of brighter colours and more upbeat moods, if days one through three were about black and grey. Then again, this was also the day of Custo Barcelona, whose shows—ever since we began covering them for the fall 1999 season—have been happy affairs, along with Betsey Johnson’s. In Custo’s case, it has been Custo Dalmau’s willingness to inject colour and vibrancy into each collection without proceedings becoming stale, and fall 2014 is no exception. There were more furs and layering returned in a big way, which points to greater volumes coming into play for the season.
   But Lela Rose and Meskita were happy to depart from black, too, with gold, magenta and silks for the former, and Alessandra Meskita went away from earthy tones for more royal blues, burgundies, pinks and icy whites. Katya Zol also made good use of icy shades, as well as some seemingly comfortable leather trousers, while her models had a single line of gold down the centre of their faces. Parkchoonmoo was all about boldness, enjoyable geometric prints and glitter—and did so in refined fashion. Prints were also the order of the day at Czar by Cesar Galindo. Georgine went for luxury, with furs and silks, along with a helping of prints; and South African-born David Tlale, too, delivered elegant, refined and flowing looks with silk and gold ornamentation lifting his designs further.
   Vivienne Tam, meanwhile, derived her digital print design from inspiration from cave murals in Dunhuang, China. The prints were exquisite and detailed, and Tam managed to bring elements of her Chinese culture into the collection in a way that has cross-cultural appeal.
   The colour accolade, however, falls not with Custo on day four, surprisingly, but Diane von Furstenberg, with reds and cobalt blues lifting black and gold geometric prints as the designer also celebrated the 40th anniversary of her wrap dress. Her collection, cheekily entitled Bohemian Wrapsody, is about ‘A glamorous vagabond, she is on the run with her dreams and color.’ And that’s definitely, in the words of our Anna Deans, a wrap.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York, fall–winter 2014–15, day three videos

Our day three videos from New York Fashion Week fall–winter 2014–15 are up, from Ruffian, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Lacoste, Adeam, Mara Hoffman, Monique Lhuillier, Jill Stuart, Koonhor, Iván Aguilar, and the Asia Fashion Collection, while we also feature “studio stops” at Ruffian, Vivienne Tam (who shows tomorrow), and Bibhu Mohapatra.
   Ruffian was an enjoyable and upbeat way to kick off day three, with rich fabrics and florals, though keeping with the fall trend of blacks as the base colour. Hervé Léger by Max Azria similarly had a black base but contrasted with beading and trim, including ‘cage corsets’, an update of the label’s bandage dresses. Feathers and fur were used generously, along with shredded hems. Iván Aguilar gave day three an upbeat Brazilian vibe with his first collection in New York with something more sexy, revelling in volume with large collars and sleeves, and beige replaced black in a welcome way. Jill Stuart also played with volumes, with coats and maxi capes contrasting with mini-dresses—definitely a highlight of Saturday’s shows.
   Kati Stern of Venexiana gave lovely, glamorous gowns, with her usual sumptuous fabrics, forecasting a figure-hugging fall on the world’s red carpets. Monique Lhuillier also forecasted a narrower silhouette with some frills as distractions, though by the second half of her show the theme was wide, flowing gowns and with prints and lace. We loved it. If there was a collection that deserved the adjective beautiful on day three, then it was Mara Hoffman’s: Moroccan-inspired prints and exquisite beading, with jacquard and silk, and richly embellished maxi-dresses. Adeam’s effect was lighter: designer Hanako Maeda went for powdery shades and lighter greys for her frocks, in a collection inspired by Yasunari Kawabata’s 1935 love story Yukiguni (雪国, translated to Snow Country). Lacoste had a relaxed style and its blacks and dark blues were offset, too, by beiges and greys, in Portuguese designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista’s collection, inspired by a visit to Chantaco. South Korean-born Son Jung Wan was also happy to go against black with dark blues and golds, also putting volume to good use.
   The Asia Fashion Collection incubator, supported by Vantan and Parco, brought together designers from the orient, with a selection by the Taiwan Textile Federation and Hong Kong Trade Development Council, and students from the Vantan Design Institute. There was everything from old-school glamour to boho chic, and gowns to microskirts, while music went from instrumental to French to highlight the international flavour of this catwalk show.
   Day four begins at 11 a.m. EST with Lela Rose, which you can catch on our live player. Also on the schedule for Sunday are David Tlale, Katya Zol, Custo Barcelona, Park Choo Moo, Vivienne Tam, Georgine, and Meskita.

Six young designers selected for Rotterdam museum, to exhibit alongside Viktor & Rolf, Martin Margiela

Top Iris van Herpen is among the six winners of the Han Nefkens Fashion on the Edge Awards. Above Olek of Poland, also on the winners’ list.

An exhibition, The Future of Fashion Is Now, will open on October 11, 2014 and run to January 18, 2015 at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, featuring the works of Viktor & Rolf, Christophe Coppens, Martin Margiela, Hussein Chalayan, and others.
   Additionally, six young fashion designers will feature among the 60 who will exhibit, having just won the Han Nefkens Fashion on the Edge Awards.
   To find the emerging designers, 20 international scouts selected two or three designers for the exhibition and the Han Nefkens Fashion on the Edge Award. A jury of six—made up of Viktor & Rolf, Vogue Nederland editor-in-chief Karin Swerink, Vassilis Zidianakis, Han Nefkens and José Teunissen, selected the final six.
   The winners are Iris van Herpen (the Netherlands), Craig Green (Great Britain), Dolci & Kabana (Australia), Olek (Poland), Digest Design (China) and Lucco (Peru).
   The Award, the brainchild of Nefkens and Tenuissen, supports fashion talent, offering designers the opportunity of creating new work, then given on perpetual loan to the museum.
   Swerink notes that the winners ‘had to engage, inspire and surprise me. All six designers met these three criteria.’
   The six will not fly blind: the jury will assist them up to the opening, says the Museum. The public can follow the process online.
   â€˜The exhibition addresses the critical position young fashion designers adopt towards the fashion system and the role of clothing in today’s society. Sustainability, new technologies and the value of clothing for the identity of an individual or a community are themes with which they open the discussion about fashion of the future,’ says the Museum.
