Sies Marjan Expected to Show Men’s in Paris

Count Sies Marjan as the latest brand to make the jump from New York to Paris.
Sources said the buzzy New York-based brand will hold its first men’s-only show in June during Paris Fashion Week. The company declined to comment but an announcement is expected next week.

The label, designed by Sander Lak, a former head of design for Dries Van Noten, has historically shown men’s looks during his women’s show in New York, but a more-intense focus on its men’s collection has prompted the company to opt for the Paris runway where many of the higher-profile brands show.

Sies Marjan launched as a luxury women’s label in 2016 in New York. Lak, a Dutch native, debuted his first full men’s line for fall 2018.
Before spending five years at Dries Van Noten, Lak, a graduate of Central Saint Martins, worked at Balmain in Paris and Phillip Lim in New York. His Sies Marjan brand is known for its use of color, proportion and innovative materials.

This Is Not The White Pantsuit We Expected To See Last Night

Donald Trump is actually our next president, and Melania Trump is our next first lady.

The latter attended her husband’s victory party at the Hilton in New York City Tuesday night a white Ralph Lauren one-shoulder jumpsuit. We thought we might see a white pantsuit, but not this one:

Madonna And Beyonce Expected To Perform At Grammys

To all the performers on next week’s Grammy Awards lineup: Sit down, the queens are in the house.

Madonna and Beyonce are set to perform at the Grammys on Jan. 26, according to a Los Angeles Times report that cites “two sources with knowledge of the plans.” The Huffington Post reached out to representatives from both singers’ camps and will update this post upon receiving confirmation of the news.

Madonna is expected to contribute guest vocals to a performance from one of the night’s nominees. Previously scheduled performers who Madonna could cozy up with onstage include Lorde, Taylor Swift, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons.

Beyonce will offer her first televised performance since releasing her surprise self-titled album on Dec. 13. The momentum for the unexpected release hasn’t dwindled yet, as the album still sits at No. 2 on the Billboard albums chart and could receive an additional boost from the singer’s Grammy appearance.

“Let’s put it this way … we have a really great history that goes back to the early days of Destiny’s Child,” Grammy show producer Ken Ehrlich told the Los Angeles Times, despite being unable to confirm or deny the two singers’ involvement. “I love working with [Beyonce]. She’s incredible. She is so into what it is that she does and making sure that everybody who sees her walks away saying ‘wow.’”

Beyonce is up for one Grammy this year, as a featured artist on Jay Z’s “Magna Carta…Holy Grail” track “Part II (On The Run).” She and Madonna have a long history with the awards. Thanks to both her solo work and her Destiny’s Child material, Beyonce is one of the most-honored female artists in Grammy history, behind Alison Krauss and Aretha Franklin. Madonna has seven Grammy trophies, three of which came for her acclaimed 1998 album “Ray of Light.” Her 2006 performance with Gorillaz and De La Soul is commonly credited as one of the best Grammy acts in recent years.

If the news comes to fruition, Madonna and Beyonce will join an all-star roster of performers that also includes a Beatles reunion featuring Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Daft Punk taking the stage alongside Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder, and Metallica being joined by noted concert pianist Lang Lang.
