How Zaha Hadid was of Major Influence on Fashion

She may be best known for her architectural designs. Nonetheless, Hadid had a major impact on the fashion industry not only through the Chanel famous Mobile Art Pavilion she designed, or Atelier Swarovski’s installations she created to commemorate its 20th anniversary but also through jewelry and fashion pieces.

Through her collaborations with Danish label Georg Jensen, Swiss brand Caspita and Lebanese Aziz and Walid Mouzannar, Hadid proved herself to be polyvalent and interdisciplinary, getting her inspiration to conceive jewelry from architecture and sculpture. She also collaborated with Lacoste, United Nude and Melissa Shoes to create some “futuristic” shoe designs. This is just a short list of Hadid’s contribution and vision to the fashion world.

It doesn’t seem surprising to know this side of her when we hear her confess to Vogue: “Architecture is how the person places herself in the space. Fashion is how you place the object on the person”.

The Most and Least Fashionable Moments of the 2016 Oscars!

I’ve been waiting impatiently to see some unforgettable fashion moments at the 88th Academy Awards. Let’s say that there were no wow moments. Some did a good job by avoiding many fashion mistakes others, unfortunately, couldn’t help but commit.

  • I’m not a fan of sequined dresses. But Naomi Watts in her navy Armani Privé looks like pure enchantment!

  • Once is accidental, twice is coincidence, three times: it is definitely a fashion transformation! Oh yeah, Lady Gaga stuns in her custom made jumpsuit by Brandon Maxwell

  • Although it may look crowded, Amy Poelher’s gown by Andrew GN couldn’t pass unnoticed! I love the wide sleeves and the embroideries, a perfect combination for a Japanese themed dress!

  • I would have loved Daisy Ridley’s look by Chanel if her skirt was shorter

  • I’ve been waiting for a dazzling look for Alicia Vikander whom surprised me until I saw the bottom of her dress which reminded me of bed sheets!

  • She might have wowed you with the sexiness of her dress, but Rachel McAdams didn’t nail the perfect look. Her look is simple and… I thought we’ve had enough of Angelina Jolie’s look-alike prostatic legs!

  • Saoirse Ronan could use a piece of advice so she could dress her age

  • Heidi Klum is more like a “poupée de chiffons” than a princess in her Marchesa dress

  • I’ve always liked how Kate Winslet celebrated her body and opted for simple yet elegant looks. But her choice yesterday was a huge catastrophe. The Ralph Lauren dress she chose reminded me of garbage bags! Sorry Kate, it was definitely not your night…

  • Ladies, ladies, the plunging neck is sexy but just don’t overdo it! And by that I mean Olivia Wilde in Valentino and Charlize Theron who could have bedazzled us in Dior if it wasn’t so simple (the color suits her perfectly but the look lacks some Oscar deserving glow)

At a doll house-themed fashion show in Paris, Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld launched his SS Couture Collection surrounded by Cara Delevingne, Gwyneth Paltrow and Diane Kruger among major figures attending the show which featured Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.

Ivory, gold, sequins, capes, a new accessory we identified as what could be a phone case on the models’ waists and a stunning Jenner in a plunging black dress were the main signature of this event.
