If in the modern fashion industry there is a person who is able to read the public’s desires and transmit them through clothes with almost unconditional accuracy, then this is Alessandro Michele. It was he who three years ago made everyone believe that gender boundaries in fashion are no more than an archaic stereotype, and at the same time deftly launched into the stratosphere of the fashion universe a trend for the style of a well-read intellectual intellectual of May 1968.
At the end of last week, a bill was passed to the State Duma banning free abortions without medical indications.

Tomorrow in New York Fashion Week starts, which traditionally opens the month of shows, presentations and afterparty. On the eve of the next fashion marathon, we decided to discuss the latest industry news, which promise to make major changes in the usual system of fashion shows. Here is one of the most interesting tales of the history of the fashion industry: in 1998, Helmut Lang announced that he intends to organize his forthcoming show spring-summer - 1999 separately from the general schedule of the New York Fashion Week, which was held at that time in November, after Milan , London and Paris.
The theme of age - or rather, aging - is one of the most difficult. The cult of naturalness has taught us that the active struggle with age is wrong. Packaging and advertising campaigns of anti-aging products are not inferior in the delivery of decorative cosmetics, and expensive jars are successfully sold, but no one is in a hurry to admit to their purchase.
Material prepared: Anastasia Karimova Yesterday, RBC, citing a study by Grant Thornton, published the news that Russia allegedly ranked first in the world in the number of women among top managers - women occupy 40% of senior positions in Russian companies.

In short, the author expresses in a stilted way about the quotation of "fashionable dissidents" Miroslav Douma, Lena Perminova, Vika Gazinskaya, Uliana Sergienko and Natalia Alaverdyan, accusing them of non-patriotism and public denial of ties with their homeland.
Dmitry Kurkin Fake porn video, in which the star of the film “Wonder Woman” Gal Gadot allegedly has sex with his stepbrother, which appeared on the Web this week, turned out to be not just a fake, but a fake generated by artificial intelligence.

Last week, even distant from the world of fashion, people discussed the article Business of Fashion about "image wars" in politics: referring to an anonymous source, the publication reported that Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue, took up Hillary Clinton's style. Openly supporting the Democratic Party, Wintour is still unlikely to walk around the show rooms herself and collect the bow of his ward every morning - even if he is a US presidential candidate.
AT THE PAST WEEK OF FASHION OF A SINGLE-DEMOLAR STAR, Kaya Gerber has become the sixteen-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford, who followed in the footsteps of her mother. A rare gloss editor did not consider it her professional duty to put a model's energetic gait video into storiz and be touched when she took part in the Versace show - the same one where her mom appeared in the finale on the catwalk in the company of her colleague from the 90s.
Text: Lisa Birger. The Faded David Fincher is about to be released - a film version of one of the most popular novels of recent years, the 2012 book of the same name Gillian Flynn. If you believe already appeared reviews of the film, he is not so far gone from the book: the same plot turns, which would envy any track “Formula 1 ″, the same change the image of the main characters, who several times in the same story have time to change the face .
This week in Russia suddenly began to speak loudly, in large numbers and openly about the problems of children with special needs, as well as about how indifferent and often cruel to them is society and the state. The reason was the incident in Nizhny Novgorod, which was told by the supermodel and the founder of the Naked Heart Foundation, a charitable foundation for helping children, Naked Hearts.
A modern girl (not only a girl, by the way) has to defend her rights every day and fight stereotypes: it is unusual when she speaks openly about her age, brightly paints herself and knows how to drink. In the context of the upcoming holidays, the latter is especially relevant. We asked the journalist Moore Sobolev to speak out about a sober approach to alcohol (in an ethical sense, and not from a public health perspective).
It is believed that social networks regularly add negative emotions to us, and numerous studies say that they can exacerbate depressive states and make us more anxious. No wonder: it often seems to us that in comparison with perfectly selected photographs of friends and their fun statuses, our real life loses.
Yesterday, January 12, the most anticipated show of the season was held, to which fans counted the days, sharing photos under the hashtag #MargielaMonday. Galliano presented his first couture collection for the Maison (Martin) Margiela house.

Text: Tatyana Nikonova The Internet has been discussing the eerie story told by Olga Timanova in the public page of the “Goodbye Normals” project for 24 hours now: she and Nikita Demin went to travel around the globe, blogging about the trip.

As Olga wrote, in fact, throughout the journey, her partner humiliated her, beat her and put him in financially uncomfortable situations, and she forgave him for a long time.
Margarita Virova In the last month at least two big stars complained about the politically incorrect retouching in gloss. Evening Standard "cut off" from the photo avant-garde weaving on the head of Solange Knowles, and in the British Grazia decided to embellish the hair of Lupita Nyong'o somewhat. We describe how women of African descent revolted against Eurocentric beauty standards and why this statement means more than the right to naturalness.
February 8, New York Fashion Week. The most anticipated season show is the debut collection of Raf Simons as the new creative director Calvin Klein.
