Greatest tribute to an icon
This can be a serve that I didn’t count on: P!nk sporting Cher’s literal Bob Mackie items on the American Music Awards. The singer just isn’t somebody I look to for vogue (and that is OK, not everybody desires to or must be a method icon), however she completely nailed it with two classic appears designed by one among vogue’s most gifted designers, borrowed from the wardrobe of the music icon.
The primary was a costume from 1987 known as the ‘Earthquake costume’, and the second, to carry out onstage, a pink feathered robe that references Cher’s iconic Time cowl and look from the 1974 Met Gala.
Mackie has labored with Cher for years, creating a lot of her most memorable appears, and will also be a little bit of a snob in terms of whom he deems worthy of sporting his designs. He works with icons solely: Cher, Dolly, Elton, Diana, Beyoncé, RuPaul. And now, P!nk. – Zoe Walker Ahwa

Cate would not present up on too many pink carpets however when she does, she makes it price it. One of many few true film stars who continues to be holding out on Instagram (I guess she has a finsta to comply with her kids from her), a call that solely provides to our thirst for her.
The 2022 Oscars Governors Ball held this week marked the official kick-off of awards season and generated a plethora of wonderful content material for vogue lovers.

It is unclear whether or not Robbie’s unique Chanel contract has formally lapsed however this Grecian impressed costume that she wore to the Governors Ball is actually a departure from the frou frou numbers we have come to count on her in.

Second-best tribute to an icon
On one hand, that is hideous – the kind of soiled wash, studded denim that haunted the early noughties. On the opposite, it is an ideal pop star look that harks again to the chaotic pink carpets of that point, earlier than stylists and celebrities being locked into roles as luxurious model ambassadors.
The explanation singer Kim Petras’ denim ensemble by Blumarine is on this checklist? It is a tribute to Britney’s legendary denim MTV look, and that deserves recognition. (Fellow pop star Dua Lipa wore the identical costume this week, too, however I want Kim’s messiness) – ZWA

However this lovable little black costume with flower appliqués and puff-sleeves is the one which I would like in my very own wardrobe (I came upon later that it’s, unsurprisingly, by one among my favourite manufacturers, Batsheva).
