Why Everyone is Embracing 'Ugly' Fashion Trends

Fashion has an odd relationship with ugliness. During the early aughts when socialites Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie were sporting Ed Hardy and Von Dutch hats, it was considered all the rage. Now, as '00s trends make their way back to the runway, the high-fashion crowd has begun wearing these kitschy designs in full irony of its perceived "ugliness."

Hedi Slimane Unveils His First Womenswear Campaign For Celine

Hedi Slimane has donned many hats over the past decade. From claiming fame as creative director for Dior Homme in the early aughts (which introduced his glam rock aesthetic to the world), and rebranding Yves Saint Laurent (infamously dropping the "Yves") in 2012; to, most recently, replacing Phoebo Philo at Celine (yes, Celine without an é)-his debut for the French house for Spring/Summer 2019 was met with plenty of skepticism from loyal fans of the brand.

Here's why macromalist fashion is the ultimate way to fight the patriarchy

I am a self-proclaimed macromalist. I want maximized silhouettes, frills, big - no, huge - shiny bows. I want fifty shades of pink, layers of ruffles and all things that sparkle. I want over-the-top. More is more. I was born in Sweden, a country synonymous with upbeat pop songs, "fika" breaks, functioning welfare and gender equality.

Carla Bruni Says Sexual Abuse Doesn't Happen In Fashion - She Is Wrong

I started working in fashion when I was 19. Two months into my first position as a stylist's assistant in New York, I was sexually harassed for the first time. A well-known male photographer who worked frequently with my boss invited me to his bedroom after a shoot, which was, conveniently, located right next to the studio portion of his live-in studio.
