Kewl News: Fashion Recap for September
Posted on October 06 2016
So September is over, and we are already into the first week of October – tempus fugit! The previous month for the fashion world saw important events such as the New York Fashion Week among other happenings. Here is your monthly style and fashion recap for September 2016.
New York Fashion Week—Key Happenings
The first half of September had an all-important event for the style and fashion world, the New York Fashion Week. Street-style fashion made quite a mark with many of the attendees dressed in keeping with the theme, complete with enviable jewels, handbags, and sunglasses.
Project Runway star Christian Siriano made a subtle yet clever statement by choosing plus-sized models along with the ‘regular’ models that showcased pieces from his collection on the ramp. The event also saw something of a Stranger Things reunion with actors Millie Bobby Brown and Winona Ryder sharing adjoining seats on the front row along with other A-listers.
In an admirable moment, Reshma Quereshi, a 19-year-old Indian acid attack survivor walked the runway to open the Archana Kochhar and FTL Moda show and also to raise awareness for her Make Love Not Scars initiative.
Roundup of the Emmys 2016
Another important event that September witnessed was the 2016 Emmy Awards; and the red carpet at the show had quite a few fashion surprises. Now, this award show is not something usually associated with daring fashion wear (unlike say the Met Gala), but there were some looks amid the sea of tuxedos and pretty gowns that surely deserve a mention.
While Kerry Washington showed off her massive baby bump and totally rocked a daring strapless Brandon Maxwell black gown with cutouts, Sarah Paulson’s green Prada gown stood apart from the rest with its aggressive, spiky look and a plunging neckline.
Jill Soloway, who won an Emmy for best director of a comedy series for Transparent, sported a completely unconventional look with a printed Gucci suit in mauve and a pink blouse. While the outfit may not have wowed fashionistas, we can’t help but admire her attitude!
Zara Becomes the Latest Retailer to Launch an Eco-Friendly Fashion Line
In a much-appreciated move, fashion clothing brand Zara launched the ‘Join Life Collection’—an environment-friendly range that features clothes made of sustainable materials like organic cotton, Tencel, and recycled wool. This comes as part of sustainability commitments made by Inditex, the brand’s parent company. The group aims to have stores that are 100 percent eco-efficient by 2020, and these outlets will use 50 percent less water and 30 percent less energy.
The line will also feature clothing with a stress on minimalism and has strict criteria that all products must meet to be part of this new line. The fashion retailer describes its collections as “a fusion of masculine and feminine style which defines clean silhouettes and a color palette inspired by mineral tones.”
Tom Hiddleston models for Gucci Menswear with Three Afghan Hounds for Company
British actor and always-in-the-news celeb Tom Hiddleston is Gucci’s face for the Cruise 2017 men's tailoring collection and the Internet has been abuzz about his latest photo shoot. Dressed in vibrant and unconventional statement suits, Tom’s look was completed with fur loafers and printed ties.
The photos, which ooze style and grandeur, were taken inside the historic Los Angeles mansion of late artist Tony Duquette. Three beautiful dogs who were part of the campaign added to the luxurious magic and eccentricity of the shoot. We must say Loki sure looks suave in well-tailored Gucci suits!
Halle Berry Stuns All at Luncheon in a Sexy Bandage Dress
Destroying all preconceived notions about wearing a bandage dress, take a look at Bond girl Halle Berry’s latest look. Dressed in a stunning David Koma pale-pink-and-black sleeveless number, the actress oozed charm and class as she attended the annual philanthropic luncheon by Revlon at Los Angeles’ Chateau Marmont.
The deceptively simple dress was made more elegant with the transparent crisscrosses in the front, and Halle paired it with black strappy heels to complete the look. One look at her picture, and all you will be thinking is, “She could not possibly be 50!”
Venice Film Festival: Sophie Turner Wows Everyone with her Vintage Style
Talking about remarkable appearances, Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner’s style at the 73rd Venice Film Festival red carpet is something we just cannot get over. Dressed to kill in a Yanina Couture monochrome dress, the 20-year-old star sashayed down the red carpet in complete confidence and style while showing off quite a daring amount of side boob.
The dress had a neckline that plunged deep and featured a floral pattern, but Sophie looked nothing but elegant as she obliged her fans’ requests for a few selfies. She brought in the old-world elegance to her look with her hair styled in retro Hollywood waves and accessorized her outfit with drop earrings and black stilettos.
Sarah Jessica Parker Announces New LBD Collection
SJP LBD—that’s the name of the new line of Little Black Dresses (LBDs) from Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker, who continues to expand her fashion line. The actress took to Instagram to make the announcement, and included a video of her twirling in a black dress through a revolving door and a lobby. “Introducing SJP LBD. A new collection of Little Black Dresses designed by me, all made proudly in the USA” –this is what she posted while adding that the dress featured in the video will be available as part of the latest collection.
The LBDs will be available exclusively at Bloomingdale’s from October—so you too can now have your Carrie Bradshaw moments!
Cara Delevingne to be the face of Puma’s 'Do You' campaign
With a goal of “inspiring confidence in women everywhere," active wear brand Puma recently announced British model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne as the brand ambassador for its new campaign. The campaign will feature various categories including Sportstyle and Running & Training.
In a series of fabulous pictures, Cara is seen posing in workout outfits that display her washboard abs and a minimal-makeup look. Tracksuit bottoms, high waist thong, and a black and gold metallic sports bra are some of the products from the campaign that the 24-year-old supermodel is seen wearing in the pictures as she joins names like Kylie Jenner and Rihanna in modeling the brand’s womenswear.
Speaking about her toned figure, Cara said that it was a result of her intense training for her role on the show Suicide Squad. "It specifically encourages people to be themselves," is what she had to say about the campaign. One thing is certain—her ripped look is giving all of us some serious fitness goals.

Whoopi Goldberg Makes Fashion News in a Vetements Hoodie
The audience members at The View were in store for quite a surprise one September Monday as legendary actress and comedian Whoopi Goldberg made an appearance wearing one of the most recognizable hoodies from French label Vetements. Wearing a red piece with the words "May The Bridges I Burn Light The Way" written across the chest, Whoopi brought in cool fashion to a whole other planet far from the Jenners and Justin Biebers who are the usual type of celebs to sport Vetements streetwear-style outfits.
The senior actress’s fashion foray this month was not just limited to this surprising talk show appearance. She also made her presence felt at the New York Fashion Week where she occupied a front row seat at shows like Opening Ceremony, Hood By Air, and Thom Browne. We continue to be amazed by this gracious lady!
Kendall Jenner Gets a Tattoo on Her Lip
Now we could not possibly have a monthly fashion roundup without a mention of Kendall Jenner, can we? The eldest of the Jenner sisters, Kendall was recently in the news for getting inked on the inside of her lip. Are you wincing? So did we! The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star got this latest tat done by celebrity tattooist Jon Boy, who posted the picture on his Instagram account.
The new tattoo is in keeping with her love for minimalist designs (she got just a dot tattooed on her middle finger earlier this year). Done on the inner part of her lower lip, this latest permanent mark on her body reads "Meow." Now what is a little pain to stand out in the fashion world, right?
From new fashion events and celebrity endorsements to bold appearances and new clothing lines, September had it all. Let’s hope October has all this and more in store for us.
