Dresses not just for lasses

Westwood, 75, who is known for her eccentric creations and environmental activism, presented both menswear and womenswear for her autumn/winter 2017/18 Ecotricity line, putting men in red prom dresses uk and s******ts and ties on women.

Models wore colourful knits made up of jumpers and trousers as well as long dresses and arm cuffs, at times slit on the sides.

Men's suits were deconstructed or had wide, ankle-length trousers and sometimes were worn with long cloaks.

Women's jackets had asymmetric cuts or exaggerated shoulders.

Shirts had large collars and colourful prints and patterns, including skulls and faces, adorned most designs.

"She and he are having fun with uni*** and swapping clothes," shownotes for the collection read.

"'Buy less, choose well, make it last' limits the exploitation of the planet's natural resources."

The New York Times reported Westwood as saying: "Uni*** may sound like a joke, but in fact, it's all about styling and being able to dress however you like.

"Swapping clothes with your partner means you can buy less, choose well and really make them last."

Outfits were often layered and looks were accessorised with face paint, paper crowns, colourful socks, tights and boots.

Westwood, who previously showed menswear in Milan, Italy, was the biggest name at the four-day London event following the departure of brands like luxury label Burberry.

"London is my home. I regret leaving Milan because they've been so kind to me," she said backstage.

"It's just easier and more efficient for us to be here."

Burberry will present its menswear collection alongside its womenswear line at London's higher profile women's fashion week next month.

There are plenty of inaugural balls to go with those “great dresses” for Trump’s swearing-in

Now that the Great red prom dresses uk Crisis of 2017 has been thoroughly debunked, Washington can get back to the very important business of gearing up for next week’s inauguration. And that means partying, lots and lots of partying.

Despite the apparent lack of A-list attendees at President-elect Donald Trump’s swearing-in ceremony and the three official inaugural balls that follow Jan. 20, there will be plenty of well-heeled guests at the dozens of unofficial galas, cocktail grabs and protest parties taking place around town.

“Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson will no doubt be sporting an ethically conscious frock at PETA’s “Animals’ Party” at the Willard InterContinental on Jan. 19. That same night, Solange Knowles, who recently performed alongside her sister Beyoncé and brother-in-law Jay Z (Elevator? What elevator?) at President Barack Obama’s final White House bash last week, is performing at the “Peace Ball” hosted by Busboys and Poets owner Andy Shallal at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Across the river at National Harbor, secretary of state nominee Rex Tillerson and former Texas governor (and ex-presidential candidate) Rick Perry will be at the Texas State Society’s “Black Tie and Boots” ball. Organizers of that gathering, which reached its peak popularity during the George W. Bush years, expect nearly 10,000 guests this year and promise a big-name headliner whose identity is still hush-hush. Elsewhere in D.C., Georgia, Illinois, South Carolina and New Jersey (with Gov. Chris Christie serving as honorary chairman) will be hosting their own celebrations the night before Trump’s big day and in the days after.

There will also be not one, not two, but three balls for “deplorables,” the Hillary Clinton dig that turned into a badge of honor for some Trump supporters during the 2016 campaign. The first “DeploraBall” will be Friday at the National Press Club and is sold out. But not to worry, just blocks away on that same night there’s “The Deplorables Inaugural” ball for the starting price of 0 a ticket at the Ronald Reagan Building adjacent to the Trump International Hotel. Then on Saturday night, Gays for Trump is hosting its own portmanteau party at the William F. Bolger Center in Potomac, Maryland.

Only one of the traditional state society inaugural balls has fallen victim to Trump’s victory. The Arkansas Inaugural Ball, which was to be held Jan. 19, was canceled this week because of low demand, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Trump nabbed Arkansas, Bill Clinton’s home state, winning 60.4 percent Nov. 8, but clearly that “W” didn’t translate into ticket sales.

“Inquiries and so forth were way down (from the past),” said Glenn Mahone, the society’s president and gala chairman.

Demand soars for Holy Communion dresses with bling in Northern Ireland and Republic

Thelma, who shot to fame on the hit Channel 4 series, said demand for her trademark extravagant creations from clients in Ireland had been so high in recent weeks, she will have to turn down any future orders for Holy Communion outfits for the rest of the year.

The veteran dressmaker, who employs 22 staff at her busy 'Nico' factory in central Liverpool, was speaking ahead of a new six-part documentary series - Thelma's Big Irish Communions - which kicks off tomorrow night on TV3.

The series, which was made by Belfast-based Stirling Film and Television Productions, will follow Thelma and her team as they race against tight deadlines and demands from six different families to create blingtastic Communion black prom dresses uk for their children.

Viewers of the series, which was shot in Ireland and Liverpool, will discover that when it comes to the billowing First Communion outfits and celebrations, money is no object for some families.

Splashing out more than £10,000 for a dazzling gown is not uncommon, while one Belfast family, who are featured in a future episode, end up spending £5,000 on their daughter's Communion - double their original £2,500 budget.

Liverpool-born Thelma, whose services are popular with both the Travelling and settled community, said: "Communion dresses make up the biggest part of my business and I would say customers from Ireland and Northern Ireland make up about 80% of my client base.

"We were extremely busy last year.

"It was probably the busiest year I've had in 20 years of doing this, but it's looking like it'll be the same this year, because I've had to close my books to future orders. I just can't take any more for 2017.

"Communions are a massive part of a child's life in Ireland, and the same is true here in Liverpool, which has a large Catholic population.

"Even when the recession took hold a few years ago I was still very busy, and I think the reason for that is that however bad things get, people will always put money aside for Communions, often as soon as their daughter is born.

Belfast-based series producer Marie-Therese Mackle admitted she was surprised at how extravagant modern-day Communion celebrations have become.

She said: "For me it was an eye-opener in the beginning, as my own Communion was a simple affair with a cousin's hand-me-down dress and a meal in the local country hotel, with the grand total of €75 in my second-hand white purse if I was lucky.

"But these kids are getting gifts totalling close to a grand for the big day and trips to Disneyland. And the dresses are huge.

"Although, after working with Thelma for a year, the dresses seem pretty normal to me now."

She added: "Usually, if one child has had a Communion outfit made by Thelma, then the whole family will carry on the tradition with a new dress or outfit every time. There's no hand-me-downs with this lot.

"Thelma is a tour de force. There's nothing she can't put her hand to and her energy is boundless.

"She really loves her customers and goes that extra mile for them with her extravagant creations. She lives for it."

Thelma's Big Irish Communions begins tomorrow on TV3 at 8pm

Despite the spiralling غير مجاز مي باشدts of Communion dresses, there are still lots of budget-friendly frocks available on the high street and online.

While some parents are landing themselves in debt after forking out hundreds and often thousands of pounds on the dress, bargain-hunting mums and dads are keeping غير مجاز مي باشدts down for the big day.

The cheapest Holy Communion blue prom dresses can be snapped up for less than a fiver — if you don’t mind buying them second-hand.

If parents need to keep غير مجاز مي باشدts to a minimum, there are plenty of options out there, particularly online.

Websites including Gumtree, eBay and Facebook pages often have some great offers.

On the high street, stores like Debenhams and Marks & Spencer are selling frocks for as little as £40.

You can avoid splashing out too much cash by shopping around.

Actress Wears ‘Fashion Paul Ryan’ Fashion Pin at Golden Globes

Such class! What poise! You can assume 99% of the liberal celebrities on the Golden Globes red carpet support Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider. But Lola ******ke was the one who felt she needed to publicly and obscenely attack someone who feels differently.

For the 2017 Golden Globes Sunday night, the actress (Mozart in the Jungle, Gone Girl) wore a pink floral gown. But what was most “eye-catching,” according to women’s magazine Elle, “was the pin attached to the front of her red prom dresses uk ” reading “Fuck Paul Ryan.”

******ke told Elle that her pin supported Planned Parenthood.

"Paul Ryan is talking about defunding Planned Parenthood. I think that, along with a number of other decisions that are being talked about being made by the new administration, is atrocious,” she said. “As a person with a platform, no matter what size it is, I think it's important to share your views and maybe elevate people that might agree with you, that maybe won't feel like they can have the same voice. My body my choice, your body your choice."

Predictably, the liberal media loved it. New York magazine called the pin “this season’s must-have accessory” and Mic deemed it “a bit of bold, to-the-point political flair.” Nylon magazine hailed it as the “one accessory on last night’s red carpet which really stole our hearts.”

Rooting for Planned Parenthood runs in the family. ******ke is the younger sister of actress Jemima ******ke, who stars in Lena Dunham’s HBO show Girls -- a show that has spotlighted characters casually mentioning abortion. In 2015, Jemima told the story of her own abortion, which Planned Parenthood widely shared.

Besides acting together, Jemima ******ke is a close friend of Lena Dunham who made headlines last month after declaring she wished she had had an abortion. Dunham later apologized for her “distasteful joke.”

"My stylist [Susan Winget] and her son made them for me," ******ke added about the pin. "They made me one in the Planned Parenthood colors yesterday that I was wearing. I'm sure there will be other issues to support, but this one is really important."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, ******ke wore a similar pin during Saturday's BAFTA Tea Party. On Friday, ******ke also asked her 13.8 million Instagram followers to call House Speaker Paul Ryan about Planned Parenthood.

A photo posted by Lola ******ke (@lola******ke) on Jan 5, 2017 at 11:52pm PST

“#paulryan is obviously not worthy of all the phone calls he is about to receive from all you mega beautiful babes but he's leaving us no choice,” she wrote. “Let's do it.”

It’s all in the Hollywood family, too. Golden Globe winner Tracee Ellis Ross declared she wanted to pawn her jewelry for Planned Parenthood.

Even if the government defunds the abortion giant, it’s clear Planned Parenthood won’t be left dry with its Hollywood revenue stream.

Women not always married to their wedding rings

When Susan Carrigan got married 34 years ago, she vowed a lifetime of love to her husband, Steve.

She did not, however, make that same commitment to her ring.

To mark her 25th wedding anniversary, Carrigan did what more and more women are doing: She upgraded her wedding ring.

“I wanted something that better reflected 25 years of marriage,” the Little Canada, Minn., resident said. “My original ring was used as part of the design for my daughter’s wedding ring. It was meaningful to pass it along.”

pics:black prom dresses

It was an age-old idea that rings were a symbol for eternity. But today they’re being upgraded like some people trade in cars.

“It seems to be happening more often and earlier than it used to,” said Bob Moeller, president and co-owner of R.F. Moeller Jeweler in the Twin Cities. “It used to happen at 25 or 30 years. Now it’s not uncommon to see that upgrade happening at 10 and even five years.”

Moeller estimates that as many as a quarter of his customers — mostly women — have upgraded their wedding rings.

“It’s more of a generational thing,” he said. “The younger generations don’t feel the same attachment — for them, the wedding ring is more of a dynamic experience than a onetime thing.”

While Carrigan passed her original wedding ring down to her daughter, the decision for other women to trade their rings is driven by changes in taste, income or to mark meaningful milestones in a relationship, such as an anniversary or the birth of a baby (also known as a “push present” among women of current childbearing age).

At many jewelry stores, the idea of an upgrade is promoted when a ring is purchased. Some jewelers offer a trade-in program for couples whose budgets have grown since they first purchased an engagement ring and will adjust the price of a new diamond or gemstone based on the price of the original engagement purchase.

“There is no downside to upgrading a diamond,” said Eugene Gittelson, owner of Gittelson Jewelers in Minneapolis. “Their value is always going up.”

Alyssa DeRusha married TV anchor Jason DeRusha in 1998, when she was 22. Since then, DeRusha discovered Stephen Vincent Design, a Minneapolis custom jeweler, and fell in love with Vincent’s signature modern aesthetic, particularly his tension-set diamond rings.

“(We) had come a long way since our college days and my tastes had changed,” she said. “In 2012, I finally pulled the trigger and I have no regrets.”

The center diamond from DeRusha’s original ring was made into a pendant and some of the side stones were made into stacking rings.

“Wearing a ring symbolizes our love, but to me that love is not just represented by the original ring,” she said. “When we go on vacation, I sometimes just wear a cheap band. I want to wear a wedding ring, but to me it doesn’t need to just be one ring.”

While DeRusha says her husband was supportive of the idea, approaching a spouse with the idea of an upgrade can be a daunting discussion.

Sometimes, it’s the man who makes the first move.

“(My husband) has asked me to upgrade mine, but I can’t bring myself to do it,” said Heather Weirich of Plymouth, Minn. “We were engaged at 21 and he worked hard to buy me the ring he did. It means so much to me, I just can’t upgrade.”

Weirich isn’t alone in her attachment to sentimentality. For many, the symbolism contained in the original ring trumps both carat size and غير مجاز مي باشدt.

Last April, a Minnesota woman wrote on Facebook in defense of her “small” wedding ring after hearing from friends and family that the size of her ring didn’t represent the level of success she and her husband had achieved.

“Since when did the size of someone’s ring become an indication of success?!” Rachel Pederson of Eden Prairie wrote. “For me, the ring is so much more. My ring symbolizes a whirlwind, storybook, ‘make you sick’ love story.”

HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” star Joanna Gaines also publicly decried an upgrade. In her book, “The Magnolia Story,” Gaines revealed that she turned down a recent opportunity to upgrade her wedding ring because of the sentimental value attached to the original.

“This is the original diamond I picked, and it’s perfect just the way it is,” Gaines wrote.

A changing of wedding rings isn’t just for women and doesn’t always غير مجاز مي باشدt more, either. Andy Borne has been married for 16 years, but says it might be time to update his ring finger.

“I have often toyed with the idea of downgrading my wedding ring from platinum/gold to some other metal, perhaps molybdenum or titanium just because it’s cool and unusual and gold is so common,” the Eagan, Minn., man said. “Iridium would be my first choice and it would be an upgrade.”

Minneapolis resident Jessica Reipke adores the sapphire solitaire engagement ring her husband proposed with, she just doesn’t love to wear it.

“I just did not find it to be practical for a pretty low-maintenance person like myself,” Reipke said.

The sapphire ring is worn for special occasions or around her neck on a chain, but Reipke now dons a simple gold band on her ring finger.

“I actually downgraded,” she said. “Simple is where it’s at for me.”

Indiana Bride Moves Wedding to ICU So Her Mother Who Was Given a Week to Live Can Attend: ‘She Loves Love’

Devoted daughter Kristin Powers married the love of her life a month early at Indiana University Health West Hospital‘s ICU so that her mother, who was given a week to live by doctors, could be there.

“She is my best friend, my right hand and my person,” Kristin, 33, tells PEOPLE of mother Cheryl Owens. “It’s easy to get lost in the details of a wedding, but at the end of the day, it’s about commitment to love and I wanted her to be there for this part of my life.”

“I was just blessed by God that I was able to be there,” Cheryl Owens, 55, tells PEOPLE.

Cheryl, who lives with her husband Mike Owens in Monrovia, Indiana, was diagnosed with stage-4 kidney cancer in October and although doctors removed the five-inch tumor in November, it had already spread to her lungs. And on Monday, Kristin received a text from her mom with “a bunch of crying emojis in a row.”

“I ran to the hospital and doctors said the cancer was spreading fast,” she explains. “Then they said she probably wouldn’t make it through the week.”

Kristin and her now-husband Brian Powers, who live in Indianapolis, Indiana, decided to move up the date of their wedding, originally set for February 4.

“We had just started dating when we found out about mom’s cancer,” says Kristin, who met Brian at Franklin College 12 years ago, but didn’t start dating him until August 2016. “Brian proposed the day before Thanksgiving, he wrote me a sweet letter and had it hanging on my door with a ring pop, which is typical of us,very silly.

“We knew it was going to be a whirlwind wedding, just not this whirlwind.”

Kristin says her mother “absolutely adores Brian,” who fits into the family “so well.”

“The day she was diagnosed with cancer she told me, ‘I’m so glad you have someone to take care of you, since I won’t be here anymore,’ ” she adds.

Kristin and Brian were able to pull together the last-minute wedding with help from friends, family and Indiana University Health West Hospital.

“I cannot thank them enough for pulling it all together,” says Kristin. “There was a guest book, we had hole-punched paper for confetti. A nurse brought his guitar and sang ‘Amazing Grace,’ which is my favorite song. It was so special.”

The bride, who had her hair and makeup done by her best friend, was even able to pick up her wedding long prom dresses uk early (which was being altered at David’s Bridal). Her dad walked her down the aisle.

“She loves love, so I know how important this whole ceremony was to mom,” says Kristin. “She was always teasing me, trying to set me up with people. Always saying she wanted me to get married and have children.

“I’m just so glad she got to see it.”

Cathy Stoll

Cheryl was wheeled in on a hospital bed for the ceremony, where the flower girl curled up next to her to watch Kristin and Brian exchange vows.

“I was worried it would be a somber event around her bedside, but it didn’t turn out like that,” says Kristin. “For me it felt like a real wedding when I walked down the aisle. It felt joyous, like a celebration of love.”

Cathy Stoll

Kristin says her mom tells her she “isn’t done yet” and plans to fight for her life every minute.

“She’s hopeful for a miracle, but doctors aren’t sure how long she says,” says Kristin. “Her lung function has improved a little, so we’re hoping for another month.”

Cheryl will celebrate her 56th birthday on Saturday — but her present came a few days prior when she got to see her daughter tie the knot.

“The day after the wedding, a nurse came in and mom told her, ‘I looked up there and saw my baby and I am so proud!’ ” says Kristin. “I worried the wedding might upset her because it was a sobering realization of the reality of her situation, but then she told the nurse how happy she was and how beautiful I looked.

“To hear her say that meant a lot to me.”

Fashion: Who were the best dressed of the year?

Last year was an exceptionally fine year on the red carpets, which means it’s time to look back at those who went above and beyond the call of style duty in order to show the rest of us mere mortals how to red prom dresses uk when all eyes and cameras are upon you.

Age is certainly no barrier to style and the the development of an excellent dress sense, as our choice of best looks of the year demonstrates. The youngest (Gigi Hadid) is 21 and the most senior (Mary Berry) is 81.

With the 2017 awards season due to kick off soon, first the Golden Globes, followed by the Oscars, without further ado, here are the statement (although far from obvious) looks we loved and the stylish wearers who caught our eye because of their red carpet and special event choices in 2016.

Gigi Hadid - International Model of the Year 2016 Gigi Hadid at The Fashion Awards in London wearing Atelier Versace. Okay, she's from California, but she's dating Bradford lad Zayn Malik, fomerly of One Direction, therefore we think Yorkshire has a small claim to her.

Glamour Girls: behind the cast's trouserless look

In the beginning ... Allison Williams, Jemima ******ke, Lena Dunham and Zosia Mamet in the first season of Girls.

Thighs, platforms and colour: that’s the mesغير مجاز مي باشدe for spring if style seer Marc Jacobs and millennial TV programme Girls, are to be trusted as cultural touchstones. The new cover of Glamour magazine features the cast lined up in Marc Jacobs’s SS17 collection. The show’s styling – a re-imagined take on basic basics and student flatshare chic – hasn’t changed much in the five years since Girls first aired, with the line between pyjamas and daywear barely perceptible. And this cover is simply an elevated version of that: truncated hemlines, baby-doll red prom dresses uk and post-internet hoodies.

As ever, Jacobs has tapped into the moment with his styling. Last year was a pretty sour one but, in contrast, Jacobs spring show – a neo-future imagined by Edward Gorey – was one of the season’s springiest, a stab at optimism and, as always, its own form of entertainment. Models with distressed dreadlocks, appliqué micro-black prom dresses and hoodies featuring Julie Verhoeven prints walked in sky-high platforms (we haven’t seen them that high since Alexander McQueen’s 201o Armadillo boots), all inside an ersatz club designed with noughties glitz and colour.

Equally glaring here is the feminist manifesto. First, the magazine was put together almost entirely by women. Second, with Girls being shorthand for the (sometimes contradictory) current feminist perspectives, the cast use agency and autonomy to turn the ***ual objectification of women on its head. The trouser-less look, or at least the very short hemlines, is a middle finger up to slut-shaming – much like the past five seasons of the show where trousers have generally seemed to be an afterthought.

Should You Rent Your Wedding Dress?

Fact: wedding red prom dresses uk aren't cheap. Generally غير مجاز مي باشدting at least four figures (sometimes more), the price to pay for a gown sounds even more expensive when you consider you'll only be wearing it once in your life (unless you get creative, of course). At this point, a bride might wonder — is it worth the غير مجاز مي باشدt? Should I rent a dress instead? Well, bride-to-be, there are both pros and cons to that idea. Let's narrow down the decision-making process, shall we?

Pros

غير مجاز مي باشدt: The thing that brought you to consider renting in the first place. Renting a dress is a much cheaper option than buying one, often غير مجاز مي باشدting just three figures.

Extras: Sometimes you even get more bang for your buck. Depending on where you're renting your gown from, some companies may throw in extra accessories such as shoes or a veil, or offer them with the gown at a discounted rate in a package deal.

Storage: There's no need to worry about where you'll keep your gown after the big day or how you'll preserve it. Send it back and you're done!

Designer Options: You just may be able to snag a dress by your dream high-end designer that you'd never be able to afford otherwise. Think Rent the Runway.

Hassle-Free Destination Weddings: Renting a dress can be very convenient for destination brides, as some destination salons allow you to rent your dress. No need to worry about packing and flying it while keeping it wrinkle-free.

Cons

Limited Options: However, the options available among rental dresses aren't as broad and might be dated. If you're looking for a specific style or are a picky shopper, renting may not be the best choice. Not only are gown options more limited, but the places offering them aren't as common as those offering buyable gowns.

Size Constraints: Even if you do find a gown you like, it may not be in your size. Are alterations allowed? That's something you'll need to ask wherever you're renting from.

Damages: Spill or tear that pretty white and you'll have to pay up.

Online Ordering: This is always a risky bet. What if it comes in the wrong color or size, or looks completely different than pictured? And how much does shipping غير مجاز مي باشدt? You also might get charged a late fee if you miss your return date. It all adds up.

No Heirloom Factor: For some brides, a wedding dress holds memories of a lifetime. It's something they'll want to keep forever and possibly pass down to the next generation. With a rental dress, you might lose that sentimental value.

Less of a Shopping Experience: If you dream of saying yes to the dress in a room full of your closest loved ones, you won't get that same magical experience renting a dress online.

Whether you value sentiment or practicality more, it's up to you to give each of these pros and cons their own weight. At the end of the day, it all comes down to how you view your wedding dress ROI — is the black prom dresses a greater symbol of a day you'll never forget that you'll treasure forever, or is it merely just something you'll only wear once and never again?
