Meet the Stylist Behind Michelle Obama’s Bottega Moment

Published

on

Obama, 58, has been open about her menopause, saying she has experienced weight gains and adjusted her famously disciplined workout schedule as a result. “There is not a lot of conversation about menopause,” Obama said in an interview this month. “I’m going through it, and I know all of my friends are going through it. And the information is sparse.” When speaking to Vogue, Koop does not directly mention this topic, but she alludes to it when she runs through practical considerations. She provides an example: “A wool turtleneck. I don’t care how cute it is, it’s not going to happen.”

Koop has been deeply attuned to the first lady’s style, and what it communicates to the world, since 2009. She first started working with the first lady as an assistant to Obama’s former main stylist. (She can’t take credit for that one-strap Jason Wu inaugural dress.) In 2010, Koop became the primary stylist for Obama and has been since. “It’s been wonderful to watch her become more and more herself to the public,” she says. 

And while Obama’s focus, today, is more on comfort, this does not necessarily mean an ounce of glamor was sacrificed. Obama has provided a how-to guide of grounded and functional opulence over the past few weeks. There was the sharply tailored Bottega Veneta set she wore in Philadelphia, plucked from the coveted spring 2023 collection sent out by the brand’s newly appointed creative director Matthieu Blazy. There was also a breezy, sheer Versace tunic thrown over a bra and wide-leg pant, and a delightfully oversized and loose Canadian tuxedo get-up by Ganni.

Jennifer Lawrence Paired a Cinched-Waist Dress With the Sparkliest Choker

Published

on

By day, Jennifer Lawrence is a flat-shoe, straight-leg-jeans, and tee kind of woman. Come nighttime, she amps up the glamour. The Dior gown she wore to the Gotham Awards on November 28—which featured an elegant scooped neckline, thin straps, a cinched waist, and a voluminous skirt—was nothing short of charming. 

While her Manhattan style is distinctly relaxed, Lawrence served Old Hollywood glamour in her sculptural dress, which she accessorized with a diamond choker and red lipstick, as she presented the best-feature award.

Given that she’s a Dior ambassador, Lawrence often consults the brand for the red carpet. Earlier this month she had a floral moment at the Governors Awards in a dress from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring-summer 2023 collection. And at the Toronto Film Festival in September, Jennifer Lawrence picked a diaphanous sheer autumn-winter 2022 couture gown to wear to the premiere of Causeway.

Crystals, Cowboy Hats, Durags, and Dinner Jackets: Guests Went All Out at Born x Raised’s Annual Sadie Hawkins Winter Formal

Published

on

For one of the biggest bashes of the year, the annual Born x Raised Sadie Hawkins Winter Formal has always maintained an IYKYK vibe, and this year was no different. Hundreds of people, all of whom somehow seemed to know each other, turned out in their finest duds to attend the function, which the brand’s cofounder Chris “Spanto” Printup describes as “a wedding meets a bar mitzvah meets a quinceañera.” 

Wearing a Grace Jones–inspired suit embellished with pieces from Diné (Apache) jeweler Lionel Thundercloud, Printup set the dress code for the night, which was held at DTLA’s Soho Warehouse. “People in Los Angeles want to dress up, and they don’t always get to,” said Born x Raised’s Alex “2Tone” Erdmann as he mingled with guests on the rooftop pool deck. “They have all these wonderful outfits and really show out and get dressed to the nines.” That said, attendees had been warned in advance that the dress code was strictly no streetwear and “if you show up in a Born x Raised hoodie, you will be tarred and feathered at the door.”  

The night kicked off with a dinner sponsored by Nike, which collaborated on a limited-edition Air Force 1 Low sneaker to mark the occasion. But what was billed as an intimate dinner for 100 people steadily multiplied over the evening, with guests sharing both their seats and plates of wild arugula salad and sea bass as each wave of new friends arrived. 

Among those in attendance for the pre-party cocktails and dinner were Danny Trejo, Miguel, Nadia Lee Cohen, Freddie Gibbs, Kirsty Godso, YG, and Mister Cartoon. “I had to come as the black James Bond this year,” said Gibbs as he lined up to have a prom-style portrait taken by photographer Carlos Jaramillo—a highlight of the event. “I always have to come as the best dressed at the Sadie Hawkins. You just gotta stay dapper at all times.” 

Created in 2013, Born x Raised’s founders describe the brand as a love letter to their hometown, eschewing the city’s influencer culture in favor of people who power the real LA, and the party as a celebration of its creative community. “When I grew up in LA, it was a huge melting pot for all different cultures,” Printup told Vogue. “That’s what we’re re-creating with everyone here in this room. It’s the most well-rounded mix, and it’s the party I want to be at.”

Lucy Boynton Debuts Her New Red Hair for the Holidays

Published

on

Why wait until the new year for an aesthetic overhaul? For a makeover primed for holiday wear, look to Lucy Boynton, who traded her signature blonde chop last week for a gingered take on the year’s primary color trend: red. The actor debuted the burnished shade at a London screening of The Pale Blue Eye, with her pin-straight copper lengths pulled into a low-slung flip knot made sleeker for its center part.

Colorists Mark William Selley and Halley Brisker created the dimensional color, which felt all the more effulgent when secured with a gilded accessory in the back. The standout moment was rounded out by Boynton’s usual artistically driven, ‘60s-inspired eyes (separated lashes, well-placed rhinestones, and swipes of onyx), feathered brows, and a pink lip executed by makeup Jo Baker. Should the last lap of the year find you in something of a rut, make like Boynton and embrace that “New Year, New Me” mentality early.
