The First Lady of Fashion, Cathy Horyn, has released her 2011 round up for the New York Times. It’s a list that truly leaves no fashion rock unturned and often features wonderful surprises. For example, last year Horyn mentioned seeing Tavi at fashion week as a main highlight for 2010! This year, Alexander McQueen’s exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was top of the pile, followed by The Royal Wedding (which also featured the Alexander McQueen label). Horyn then takes on SS12 with a comment that will be seared on our brains as we approach the new season: “Yawn — oh, excuse me! Were we talking about the 1920s fashion on the spring runways, all that Jazz Age fringe and glitter?”
And of course we particularly loved when Ms. Horyn refers to social media as “soft-core pornography” in teasing consumers.
If you still aren’t convinced this is a must read piece, just read this final quote…
“Lady Gaga applies more eyeliner, mutates into an elf and takes over Barneys. Is she really Martha Stewart in disguise? Could a line of pet supplies be next for Mother Monster?”
