A Look Back At 2001: Fashion and Cultural Events!

Via  Chicago Reader

Sure, Bjork wore a stuffed swan to the Oscars in March. Vogue, People, and Esquire magazines put out simultaneous “age issues” in August. And after 66 years in business, Mademoiselle folded in October

JANUARY Already beleaguered by the press for her performance during the presidential vote-counting scandal, heavily lacquered Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris gets it this month from Mr. Blackwell, who ranks her tenth on his annual list of the nation’s worst-dressed celebrities. “The pretty, brassy lassie from Tallahassee needs cosmetic direction,” proclaims Hollywood’s self-appointed fashion cop.

FEBRUARY Men’s beards are experiencing a popularity unparalleled since the 70s, reports Ruth La Ferla in the New York Times. Most in vogue is the “shadow beard,” a manicured version of Don Johnson’s Miami Vice stubble that’s “groovier than the goatee and covering more acreage.” Of his own facial hair, home furnishings designer Alexander Julian says simply: “Stroking it makes me look smart.”

MARCH The U.S. Army announces that black berets will be standard headgear for all soldiers starting in June. The Rangers (the elite infantry group that already wears black berets) and the Green Berets register their formal opposition, but many soldiers are relieved to be rid of the envelope cap, which one calls “an eyesore and an embarrassment.” Explains haberdasher John Helmer, “A beret can be morale-building, because it is pretty cool looking.”

APRIL The Girl Scouts of America issues new uniforms: cargo pants, bucket hats, and polo shirts carefully designed to be indistinguishable from those found at the Gap or Old Navy. “It’s hot! It’s savvy! It’s today!” says the organization’s Web site. “Abercrombie has shirts just exactly like the Girl Scouts’ one,” 11-year-old Tori Lardner tells the Chicago Tribune.

MAY Survivor host Jeff Probst forces his cast to show up to the reunion show in the same smelly, filthy, worn-out clothes they’d worn for 45 days in a row during filming. Meanwhile, on the show’s Web site, copies of the tube top worn by winning survivor, Tina, are marketed as “the Buff.” Part head scarf, part tube top, the Buff is a “uniquely versatile, stitch-free garment you can wear as you struggle to survive.”

JUNE Cosmopolitan promotes the mullet the as the “most wanted new mane.”

JULY The U.S. Polo Association sues Ralph Lauren for $100 million, claiming the designer used a campaign of intimidation to sink the polo association’s own apparel line, which Lauren had earlier claimed infringes on his copyright. (On August 1 Polo Magazine loses a suit brought by Lauren and is ordered to change its name.)

AUGUST Berlin’s Humboldt University releases a study showing correlations between a woman’s character and the color of her bikini. Women in green bikinis tend to be charming, it claims, while a red bikini indicates a sporty woman who likes a challenge. Woman who wear one-piece suits are not studied.

SEPTEMBER Fashion models by the dozens cancel their overseas bookings and lie low, throwing the season’s tight schedule into a tizzy. “Girls are not wanting to fly right now,” Click Model Management owner Frances Grill tells the New York Times. “Those who are, are going with a lot of trepidation.”

OCTOBER New Yorkers are too depressed to shop, reports the New York Observer, and salespeople all over town are bored and listless. “I’m still in the place where shopping feels disrespectful,” says one woman. Equally disaffected are some designers: Hussein Chalayan trots out unraveled, half-torn garments at the spring ready-to-wear shows in Paris. “Tailoring didn’t seem appropriate,” Chalayan tells the International Herald Tribune

NOVEMBER Shoe designer Manolo Blahnik denies reports that he withdrew a pair of stilettos from his latest collection for fear that the three-and-a-half inch metal heels could be mistaken for weapons by would-be hijackers or airport security. The actual problem Blahnik’s U.S. license holder George Malkemus tells the New York Times, was that the razor-sharp heel dinged floors and punched holes in carpets. “The decision had nothing to do with anything political,” says Malkemus.

DECEMBER Romanian newspaper Evenimentul Zilei reports that 64-year-old Ioana Cioanca has crocheted a raincoat from her own hair. Cioanca says she plans to wear the coat with a matching skirt, blouse, bag, and hat, also made out of hair.

Nicole Kidman takes on the Princess of Monaco as she portrays the late Grace Kelly in the upcoming film Grace of Monaco, and the first official photo (shown) was released today.

In the film, due out 2014, Kidman portrays the legendary Hollywood beauty while she’s in her early 30s during a time of political tension between France and Monaco over tax laws. Kidman does look quite regal as Her Serene Highness.

Kate Middleton’s Beauty Routine

 

Via Shine
By Joanna Douglas

Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton spends a fortune on her grooming routine.  If you’re envious of Kate Middleton’s shiny, perfectly curled hair, you can take solace in the fact that flawless grooming doesn’t come cheap. According to US Weekly, The Duchess goes to her favorite salon, Richard Ward Hair and Metrospa in London, three times a week for $75 blowouts. A source told US, “She loves her time there and she has known everyone there for years so it’s really relaxing for her.” Hair salon visits at least 156 times a year?! Must be nice.

When you’re a member of the royal family, appearance is everything. Middleton, who is constantly photographed, must constantly uphold an image of elegance and class, so naturally her skin, makeup, nails, and hair must all be impeccable. We dug a little deeper into Middleton’s beauty routine to see how much she spends on grooming. We’ve rounded up her favorite products and estimated her yearly beauty budget based on reported sources, general habits, and cosmetic expiration dates. Let’s see how it all adds up.

Hair
-Blowouts at Richard Ward’s salon are $75. Three times a week would cost $11,732 a year.
-ELLE UK says Middleton gets $11 Keratin Infusion treatments with each blow dry. Three times a week would cost $1,720 a year.
-Haircuts are $242 a pop. Every six weeks would cost $2,000 a year.
-Richard Ward told the Daily Mail he dyes Middleton’s hair with L’Oreal Symbio and Fuente Organic colour. A full head of lowlights at his salon costs $376. Every six weeks would cost $3,008
-BellaSugar, who provided extensive coverage of Middleton’s grooming routine, says the Duchess likes the Kérastase conditioning treatments, which cost $20 to $30. Spending $25 once a month would cost $300 a year.

Makeup
Middleton did her own wedding makeup, though she did take lessons. Here are the products she’s purchased and used:
-YSL’s Touche Eclat Radiant Touch, $40
-Lancome Hypnose mascara, $26
-Lancome Hydra Zen Neurocalm, $60
-Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, $42
-Bobbi Brown foundation, $46
-Bobbi Brown Pale Pink blush, $24
-Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact, $39
-Bobbi Brown eye shadow in Ivory, Slate, and Rock Star, $21 each
-Bobbi Brown Black Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, $22
-Bobbi Brown Sandwash Pink lipstick, $23
-Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip gloss, $17
If she bought all these three times a year her makeup would cost $1,206.

Skin care
-A product loyalist, Middleton loves Swiss brand Karin Herzog’s skin care items. The company’s managing director told Style.com her favorite items are the $50 Professional Cleanser, the $76 Vita-A-Kombi 1, the $32 Vita-A-Kombi 3 Spot Zapper, and $54 the Oxygen Face Cream. Restocking these items every three months would cost $848 a year.
-The Daily Mail says Mother-in-law Duchess Camilla convinced Middleton to try a $260 Bee Sting Facial from Deborah Mitchell, and now she’s hooked. Monthly facials would cost $3,120 a year.
-According to the Telegraph, Middleton was spotted buying Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Moisturising Day Cream at Boots for about $8. Every three months would cost $32 a year.

Nails
Before the royal wedding, Camilla took Middleton to get her nails done by Marina Sandoval at the Jo Hansford Salon. They used Essie’s Allure nail polish. BellaSugar says manicures there are $58, and pedicures are $76. Bi-weekly mani/pedis would cost $3,484 a year.

Tan
Kate Middleton and her sister both love spray tans, and BellaSugar claims their regular salon charges $118. If she went bi-weekly it would cost $2,832 a year.

Fragrance
Middleton wore Illuminum White Gardenia Petals perfume on her wedding day. It costs $150 a bottle, so buying two a year would cost $300.

Teeth
According to the Daily Mail, Middleton went to orthodontist Dr. Didier Fillion who closed the gap between her two front teeth with lingual braces using 3D technology. She had a $157 consultation and the treatment may have cost around $7,000. That’s $7,157 total.

Kate Middleton’s yearly beautifying total: $37,728. But we think she’d look gorgeous on any budget.
