The Biggest Fashion and Beauty Brand Controversies of 2019 — So Far

So far, 2019 has had no shortage of brand controversies in the fashion and beauty worlds. The year started off with a number of gaffes from some of the biggest luxury fashion houses, in many cases resulting in public outcry, public apologies and, sometimes, changes in company policy. Some of the most notable fashion controversies of 2019 were Gucci’s infamous “blackface” balaclava and Burberry’s noose sweater. Kim Kardashian also came under fire for cultural appropriation when she revealed the name her first fashion line, a shapewear collection called Kimono. From the backlash against Related Cos. chairman Stephen Ross and his many companies to Jaclyn Hill’s beauty brand recall, here is a breakdown of all the fashion and beauty brand controversies of 2019, so far. Gucci accused of cultural appropriation, twice — February and May 2019 Gucci fall 2018  Aitor Rosas Su–Ž/WWD Gucci came under fire for cultural appropriation not once, but twice in 2019. The first incident was in February when the designer house released a balaclava-style sweater in its fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection and on its web site, which many claimed resembled blackface. The backlash was immediate on social media, including by Gucci collaborator Dapper Dan, who took to his Twitter account to express his disappointment

Clara Daguin Couture Fall 2019

The domed Chapelle Expiatoire tucked into a quiet square in the 8th arrondissement, built on the original burial site of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, provided the mystical backdrop for Clara Daguin’s first couture presentation.
The 2016 Hyères finalist, who specializes in combining artisanal techniques with technology in a form of science fiction meets fashion, showcased a single creation. Dubbed “Atom” and worn by her sister Mélanie like a living installation, her dress — if that is what it can be called — undulated in time to the soundtrack, activated by sound thanks to the circuits worked into the fabric.
Like the rings of gas that surround certain planets, four gauzy halos oscillated and glimmered around a column dress completely covered in five kilograms of glass beads, mirrors and neopixels, a pattern like a double-helix flickering mysteriously.
The creation of the design necessitated 3,142 hours of handiwork by a team of 31 helpers. Even in fashion’s tech-driven future, craftsmanship has its place.

Zuhair Murad Fall Couture 2019

With North Africa as inspiration, Zuhair Murad worked traditional carpet patterns into richly colored jacquards and hand-beaded jackets — using them to bring a new flavor to his world of decadent sensuality.
“I like in every collection to search for a theme and to let people dream, and enter the dream somehow,” Murad said before the show. His North African jaunt, which he called “Mirages et Oasis,” came in deep reds and purples, infused with Lurex, as well as some jazzy, solid-gold statement numbers. Last season’s pleated pastel rainbow dress — worn by Chiara Ferragni last week in an Instagram post that garnered more than 500,000 likes — came in gold renditions, one with a muted leopard print and embellished with sequins, and another with an iridescent sheen and a matching cape that billowed out behind.
Also in the heart-stopping category: a fiery orange chiffon dress with puffs of feathers lining the cape — the airy gown flowing from a tightly wrapped bustier.
Murad keeps it all highly elevated, yet he relishes contradictions. Here, he used velvet as a contrast to the shimmery and beaded sides of the collection, lending a quiet softness to the high volume lineup.
New this season: fabric headbands. Murad was

Viktor & Rolf Couture Fall 2019

The prime definition of glamour as “an attractive or exciting quality that makes certain people or things seem appealing” links it unquestionably to the world of couture. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren considered another facet of the word and started an “investigation into the original meaning of the word — casting a spell,” Snoeren said.
They had, they said at a preview, wanted to work with Claudy Jongstra, a fellow Dutch artist who has embraced sustainability in her work. To create felt such as the one used as a cornerstone of this collection, she raises her own flock, shears their wool herself and then dyes them using only plant pigments taken from her organic garden — including the elusive “Burgundian black,” a medieval recipe that produces a deep black with red undertones, which she redeveloped. Talk about a process.
But there was no preaching message behind Horsting and Snoeren’s musing. Rather, they wanted to inspire action. As the general feeling of doom about the environment rises on all sides, the designers wanted to “show something that would give a positive message,” Horsting said. “To cast a positive spell that says things can be done,” Snoeren added.

Jean Paul Gaultier Fall Couture 2019

Guests arriving at Jean Paul Gaultier’s headquarters in the sweltering afternoon were offered a choice of refreshments: a Magnum ice lolly or a glass of Champagne. Either one was perfect fare to settle in and watch the pregame entertainment.
Dressed in full evening gowns, guests crowded onto the catwalk to pose for photographs. Drag queen Violet Chachki furiously fanned herself as she greeted Swedish p.r. Fredrik Robertsson, rocking a green sequined hooded dress. Catherine Deneuve swooped in on Alber Elbaz, running her fingers through his bleached hair.
In a corner, Christina Aguilera sat with a sour expression as camera flashes went off in her face. Meanwhile, Hong Kong billionaire Stephen Hung, wearing silk Versace pajamas and velvet slippers, maintained an impassive expression behind his mirrored Ray-Bans. Robert Altman, eat your heart out.
By the time the show kicked off at 3:15 p.m. to the sound of Technotronic’s “Pump Up the Jam,” the space was filled with the kind of nervous energy one usually finds in a nightclub. Whoops and cheers greeted the first looks down the runway, including a quilted jacket that looked like it was made of fur.

Guo Pei Couture Fall 2019

If one believes in the multiverse theory, it’s entirely possible that Guo Pei’s creations are just the thing to wear when stepping out for a formal occasion. Such was the premise for a collection titled “Alternate Universe” that read as a Neil Gaiman-esque mythology in which goddesses of all creeds mingle among mortals. After all, what else to conclude from a show that starts with a pair of conjoined twins appearing from under a crow-laden arch?
That the Chinese couturier kept to a predominantly cream, metallic and gray palette gave her collection a cohesiveness reminiscent of Greek statuary. And details emerged despite the profusion of embellishments.
Embroidered scenes on dresses depicted “angels and Satan sit[ting] next to each other,” “monkeys sitting on the king’s throne under the guidance of prophets,” flocks of birds and esoteric motifs in the manner of illuminated manuscripts. There was one ballgown decked out as a human puppet theater, strings held by some sort of animal. A crow was perched on the shoulder of another gown with ballooning sleeves.
The final look was a complete tableau, the model in a marigold dress framed by a green knoll of silk chiffon grass, garment and landscape bleeding into each other.

Maison Margiela Artisanal Fall Couture 2019

Chinos, lederhosen, breeches, flares — they’re not just kinds of pants. They’re among the historical research materials pictured in vintage photos on John Galliano’s Maison Margiela Artisanal mood board, from which he distilled a plan “to explore the trouser and how that could be transformative.”
Yes, Galliano believes in the power of pants (he prefers “trousers”) to transform, not only from one item of clothing into another, but an entire belief system as represented by sartorial selection. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
In the couture collection he showed on Wednesday morning, Galliano offered part three of his exploration of decadence. “Before, we were feeling the excess, and now I’m feeling we’re in decay, reflected by the breakdown of social structure. I’m feeling impulsive and anarchic,” he said in contemplative mode during a preshow visit at the very on-brand headquarters, a bastion of beautifully curated, chic dishabille. He then added a wry rejoinder. “I sound like a teenager, don’t I?”
Not at all. Nor did he sound like a typical designer during a typical preview. Galliano’s fashion speak is often dense. Talk of decadence moving toward decay led him to observe that “so few of us remember how to rely on instinct,” and

Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition Fall 2019

Alberta Ferretti did not hold back with her Limited Edition demi-couture collection, with bold designs and intricate 3-D embroideries, which belied an underlying simplicity. Indeed, simplicity was a starting point for the designer, who said she was looking to “create a new silhouette with new, important volumes,” with an eye on “personalization and eccentricity” at the same time.
Big bows, sculptural sleeves, capes and draping on beautiful fabrics such as radzmir contrasted with simple silhouettes. Ferretti said the designs reflected “a woman’s strong identity,” which has always fascinated her and she enthused about “a dress that can move, accompany and transform a woman.”
This season, the designer also further elaborated the marine theme she developed for her latest resort lineup, shown in May in Monte Carlo, with fairy-tale lamé embroideries on jacquard gowns that looked like the seabed of an ocean, or delicate chiffon slipdresses embellished with degradé sequins that had a wet effect similar to “drops that fall off the body,” said the designer, reiterating her ongoing fascination with nature.
What Ferretti dubbed an “unexpected color palette” of acid sherbet green or mustard, with touches of vivid red, contrasted with the blues and azures of the sea theme.

The Biggest Influencer Controversies of 2019 — So Far

Hair vitamins, defective lipstick, body shaming and a bribery scandal.
These are just some of the catalysts behind 2019’s biggest influencer controversies that have captivated millions of followers on social media, launching a number of think pieces on “cancel culture,” the limits of sponsored content and society’s overall fascination with influencers and social media.
From Olivia Jade’s involvement in the college admissions scandal to a feud between Something Navy blogger and designer, Arielle Charnas, and actress Amanda Seyfriend, here is a breakdown of all the influencer drama so far this year.

Honorees for the 2019 LACMA Art+Film Gala on Nov. 2 have been set: African-American artist Betye Saar and “Roma” filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón.
LACMA trustee Eva Chow and actor Leonardo DiCaprio will continue as co-chairs, and Gucci will continue as presenting sponsor for the event, which last year drew stars including Jared Leto, Kim Kardashian, Dakota Johnson, A$ AP Rocky, Beck, Kiki Layne and Paris Jackson.
Known for her assemblage works, Saar has been a political voice in art since 1972, when she entered a small box containing an “Aunt Jemima” mammy figure wielding a gun, into an open call for black artists at a community center in Berkeley not far from the Black Panther headquarters. Titled “The Liberation of Aunt Jemima,” the piece repositioned a derogatory figure born of America’s racist history as an armed revolutionary, and set a course for Saar’s career exploring the symbolism of everyday objects in the context of African-American oppression.
“Betye Saar is one of the most significant artists working today, and one who boldly addresses issues of race, gender and spirituality,” said LACMA chief executive officer and Wallis Annenberg director Michael Govan in a statement.
“Born in Los Angeles and having sustained a career over seven decades here, Saar

Atelier By Fang Couture Fall 2019

The technique of origami featured heavily in Yang Fang’s fall 2019 collection for Atelier By Fang, the couture line of the fashion label she established in 2013 upon returning to her hometown of Shanghai after studying fashion at Esmod in Paris.
“Kids nowadays play on iPhones and iPads, but when I was little I used to play with paper,” said the designer, speaking at her first couture presentation in Paris. “My grandmother used to give me sheets of white paper and taught me how to transform them into small animals like frogs and elephants, or stars and flowers. When I arrived at Esmod, I started doing the same thing with fabrics, in order to pay homage to my Asian heritage.”
A stunning black-and-white midi shiftdress was made of hundreds of hand-folded silk organza flowers. At their center were eye-catching Swarovski crystals. The brand was the first Chinese label to be tapped by the jeweler as part of its support program for young designers, and the partnership has been going on for nine seasons.
The collection, which was black-and-white save for a short red dress, was entirely made in the By Fang couture ateliers in Shanghai, with a particular focus on craftsmanship and predominantly

August Getty Atelier Couture Fall 2019

August Getty’s gothic, theatrical “Enigma” collection visited a dark, melancholic world of graveyards and masquerade balls. One armor-like minidress was molded from resin like an ornate tombstone, complete with a gargoyle on its shoulder. Another, in black leather, had a pannier skirt and crawled with Swarovski spiders.
“Think of it as a ceramic umbrella,” \ Getty said when explaining the technique used to create another of the dramatic, sculptural pieces in his fall couture collection, his second. The design in question was a pair of voluminous pants hewn from white silk to look like Pierrot’s ruffled collar and a matching top that covered the arms and torso, enveloping the body.
Providing a contrast from black and white, mint green velvet was worked with a grid-like embroidery of pearls on a mid-length bustier dress, its silhouette exaggerated with a bustle, and was intended to give the effect of oxidized copper. In a darker manifestation of forest green, an allover sequin gown embroidered with ostrich feathers at its hem reproduced a ghost-like cherub’s face come to haunt Getty’s morbid but creative underworld.

Francesco Scognamiglio Couture Fall 2019

The iconic women who populated Capri’s nightlife, such as Veruschka, Brigitte Bardot and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, are the muses who inspired Francesco Scognamiglio’s couture collection.
Their elegant, feminine attitude was combined with influences from the Italian island, such as the colors of the sunset, which inspired the pink tone of a tulle dress. The nets of Capri’s fishermen echoed in the sparkling Swarovski crystal net sleeves of a draped minidress with a plunging V-neck, while the rich plaster decorations of Villa Lysis served as inspiration for the precious encrusted embellishment punctuating a wool coat.
Crystal starfishes and pearls gave an intriguing underwater feel to a slipdress, while a suit showing a constructed tulle jacket with a coordinated skirt was worked in a dark nocturnal tone, a nod to Capri’s legendary blue lizard living on the island’s signature Faraglioni rocks.

Fendi Couture Fall 2019

The cinematic majesty of the Roman Colosseum as seen from the roof of the Temple of Venus and Rome took your breath away. It was one of those remarkable moments many of us in fashion are privileged to experience via our jobs, a moment to register for posterity not only on Instagram, but in the mind and heart.
That Fendi chose to show in Rome at this particular time was all the more special because the city meant so much to Karl Lagerfeld, who famously joined the company 54 years ago at the behest of the five Fendi sisters and stayed until his death in February. He often boasted that during that tenure, he’d visited the Eternal City more than 800 times.
Given that, Thursday night’s show was dedicated to Lagerfeld, but subtly so. Before the show, in a backstage area that was surprisingly functional given that its bones date to antiquity, Silvia Venturini Fendi, who had long coauthored the Fendi collection with Lagerfeld, said the brand had set its sights on a show at the venue some time ago, and that it was just a matter of when. When Lagerfeld died, “we said that the plan had to go [forward] and

Valentino Couture Fall 2019

The magic continues. On Wednesday night at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli staged another dazzling show. Make that an event, one without the bells and whistles of a major set, but with a high-intensity front row that itself dazzled — Gwyneth Paltrow and Celine Dion in white, and Piccioli’s new BFF Naomi Campbell, who didn’t get the white memo and instead rocked hot pink stripes and a floppy hat. Their row of honor was anchored by Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti. (The positive relationship between the house and its founders, who cashed out years ago, is a lovely anomaly.)
The audience settled in for the latest turn in a brilliant series that has catapulted Piccioli to the forefront of the haute oeuvre. After the passing of Karl Lagerfeld and with John Galliano doing fascinating experimental work at Maison Margiela, Piccioli is its undisputed leader. His belief in couture’s ongoing relevance is well-known, including that even haute can espouse inclusivity as indicated by last season’s casting of mostly black models.
“It’s important today to dream of a world without boundaries, where everyone can live their own routes, everywhere. It’s just a dream, of course,” Piccioli  said during a preview. The

Armani Privé Couture Fall 2019

Let there be light! That seemed to be the edict from Giorgio Armani, who shunned his signature darkened venues this season to showcase his fall Privé haute couture collection in a sun-drenched gallery at the soaring Petit Palais museum.
It made for a perfect foil to his dazzling outfits, which were covered in enough crystals to give Elsa a case of fashion frostbite. Armani used them by the fistful, as a sparkly dusting on barely there mesh tops, in orderly rows on his signature pagoda-shouldered jackets, and as droplets of light on the sheerest of tulle skirts.
“The impression is that of a clear water surface reflecting a ray of moonlight or sunlight,” his show notes explained.
The designer said the collection, dubbed Armani Code, was inspired by the “folk” style of the late Eighties and early Nineties. At first it was hard to see what he meant, so far removed were his liquid fabrics and iridescent textures from the rootsy appeal of boho chic.
He opened with those razor-sharp jackets in evanescent shades of pink and blue, paired with silver velvet pants overlaid with a whisper of tulle. The first hint of a folkloric touch came in the polka-dot motifs, though Armani homed

PS Plus for July Removes PES 2019, Adds Detroit: Become Human

Sony has removed Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 from July’s free PS Plus games and replaced it with the Digital Deluxe Edition of Detroit: Become Human.

But as July’s games went live for players today, Sony issued a blog post to announce that they have replaced the previously announced PES 2019 with the Digital Deluxe Edition of Detroit: Become Human. It’s not yet clear why Sony decided to make this swap so late, but it may be due to widespread complaints on social media about Pro Evolution Soccer being this month’s offering; as a sports title, its appeal is more niche than many other genres.

Dress by Julie de Libran Couture Fall 2019

A new, niche intimacy is sprouting up in pockets across fashion, offering alternatives to the industry’s mega brand domination. Julie de Libran is one designer going her own way. After her departure from Sonia Rykiel, where she was creative director, de Libran didn’t opt for an “Eat, Pray, Love” sabbatical (physical or emotional). Instead, she jumped into a new project with her name on the label and her personal aesthetic on view.
To telegraph the personal approach behind Dress By Julie de Lebran, the designer showed her debut lineup of 21 looks in her home. “I thought it was nicer and easier,” she said. “Since I’m in my universe, I feel more relaxed and I like to have people over, even if I’m not a very good cook. I tend to get stressed in the kitchen.” (Her caterer filled the void, supplying a feast of veggie-based hors d’oeuvres.)
De Libran focused on dresses precisely because they feel so personal to her — she designed her first one at 14, for a school dance — and they represent “infinite creativity.” Yet this was no fantasy-come-to-life. Rather de Libran showed a range of distinctive looks for women who believe in dressing up at night,

Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Fall 2019

Ulyana Sergeenko’s luxury loving jetsetter left behind her old life in search of adventure, traveling east to Uzbekistan with only the clothes on her back — namely the burgundy patent leather trench dress and black-and-white bustier gown of the opening looks in the Russian designer’s fall couture collection.
When she arrives, her wardrobe takes on the influences of Samarkand, with its Islamic architecture and influential position on the ancient Silk Road, picking up her eclectic finds in the city’s bustling souks, overtaking the senses.
Metallic motifs found their way onto fluid organza dresses and harem pants in a deep palette of forest green and burgundy, adorned with colorful tassels or sequins. Her voluminous capes were worked in hand-painted silk in black or mustard yellow or inspired by the geometric patterns of the carpets of the region.
Decadent bodices and dresses offered a colorful display of allover sequins. In other looks, ballooning silks and jacquards undulated in an array of pink and lilac shades or orange and gold. Sergeenko amplified the silhouette with exaggerated shoulders, ample skirts and cinched waists, one of her signatures.
There was a charm in the balance of opulence and folklore to many of the looks, taking Sergeenko into new territory

Caruso Men’s Spring 2019

After sitting out Men’s Fashion Week for three seasons, Caruso opened the doors to its new showroom in Milan, designed like an apartment and peppered by furniture echoing the Fifties. It is to be followed by one in New York next month.
The Italian men’s brand, controlled by Fosun, is restarting under the lead of chief executive officer Marco Angeloni and through the designs of Aldo Maria Camillo. A graduate from the New York Fashion Institute of Technology, Camillo kicked off his career in 2003 as an assistant fashion designer at Valentino. Three years later, he was tapped by Emenegildo Zegna as senior men’s designer in the brand’s sartorial department, which he left in 2009 to return to Valentino as design director of the men’s line. In 2012, Camillo was named creative director at Cerruti, which he helped reposition in the luxury segment, while in September 2016 he joined Berluti as creative consultant collaborating with Haider Ackermann.
Camillo’s experience at such luxury brands served him well, as the Caruso collection he showed for spring was beautifully conceived and carried out. “We want to dress a real, dynamic man in his daily life,” said the designer. Ease and comfort are priorities for that
