Vanity fair at the R.O.M.

Vanity fair at the R.O.M.

Last night The Bay hosted a cocktail party at the R.O.M. to launch the Vanity Fair Portrait exhibition. The guests were greeted by a row of handsome young men decked out in the Hudson’s Bay signature coats. We were treated to wine, champagne and a stirring yet brief speech by Bonnie Brooks heralding the opening of The Room, which has been redesigned by the internationally successful team of Yabu Pushlberg.

The show highlights the work of master photgraphers from the insception of Vanity fair in 1913 to its re-launch in 1983. It’s incredible how the images resonate, they have become part of our common memory, the photo’s of Madonna, Princess Di and Louise Brooks are iconic. The show highlights the work of such illustrious photographers as Edward Steichen, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino and Hoyningen-Huene. The usual suspects were there, Derick Chetty from the Toronto Star, Lisa Tant from Flare Magazine, Tu Ly, a raveshing Dawn Bellini from Hugo Boss who is expecting her second son in two weeks and Susie Sheffman of Fashion Magazine looking sleek in a customised Club Monaco dress.

Coco showed her Red and White at the Holt Renfrew party launching there new online video. Coco was again decked out in a stunning Greta Constantine creation.

While many a Canadian Super Model is quick to forget the support they received from the their home press in the dawn of there carriers, one in particular is rumoured to have said “I would rather eat glass than be on the cover of a Canadian magazine”. Miss Rocha is always gracious and supportive, kudos to Coco.

Star make-up artist Hung Vanngo’s girls rocked the red carpet at the Met’s Costume Gala last night, the theme was Model as Muse, it was a tribute to the models who have changed the way we look at beauty. Helena Christensen and Eva Herzigova looked positively radiant under the talented hands of Vanngo. He has long been one of my favorite make-up artist, the way he transforms a model’s face is genius, they appear to glow from the inside out.

picture-5I’m always amazed at how fast information travels on the internet, Greta Constantines new look book came out today and it has already made it to London,
Well respected blogger Susie Bubble (no relation to Paul/Bubble from Greta) has already given them rave revues on her blog Style Bubble and they are available at Harrod’s exclusively in the U.K.. It’s not long before Kirk and Stephen become international stars and no longer a Canadian secret. You go boys !!!!

Coco Rocha superstar

It’s so great to see one of our Canadian models do so well and the even greater part is that Coco Rocha (unlike some of the others is giving back). Coco was recently in Toronto for the finally of Project Runway Canada and was supporting Canadian Fashion in Full Force.
She wore an amazing seat belt jacket and motor cross pants by the very talented design duo Kirk and Stephen from Greta Constantine and was singing their praises full on.

It was a strange season in Milan this year and maybe the recession had something to do with it but the Runway Stars were noticeably absent from most of the shows. It wasn’t till Versace that the Supers came out in full force and it was a welcome change. After watching a week of nameless russian bone racks the sexy girls strutted there stuff and Coco was the star with her new red hair.
We caught up with her after the Versace show and she was positively radiant and took time out of her busy evening to chat with us a bit.
