NEW YORK, Aug 18 — Passing over previous model muses like Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, and Jourdan Dunn, designer Brandon Maxwell stands out from the crowd this season with a campaign for his new ready-to-wear collection that stars his grandmother.Fashion houses usually vie to have the models of the moment and high-profile fashion icons representing their latest collections, but Brandon Maxwell has opted to focus on his own background and its impact on his life and career. The Texan-born designer has recruited his maternal grandmother Louise Johnson, aka ‘Mammaw’, to pose for his 2018 fall campaign.At age 81, Maxwell’s maternal grandmother is the star of a highly personal and emotive campaign. In a video that brings together old family photos, home movies and new images, the multi-talented Texan, who founded his own brand in 2015, pays homage to a family history that brought him to the world of fashion.More than a simple demonstration of his love for ‘Mammaw’, the designer wants to shed light on his grandmother’s extensive influence on his life and career from an early age on. We catch glimpses from her life and career as a buyer at a luxury women’s boutique, and even see Maxwell when he’s just a few years old, visiting a fashion store with his muse.—AFP-Relaxnews [...]

LOS ANGELES, Aug 18 — The fashion world is officially on vacation, but luckily, the stars have been busy sharing their holiday looks with us mere mortals via social media, offering a helpful lesson in effortless summer style in the process. Today we’re taking a masterclass in beachside cool from US model Martha Hunt, who is feeling the heat “somewhere tropical.”Martha’s cryptic caption might be tongue-in-cheek, but her scarlet maxi dress is serious business. The fiery red hue is bang on trend for summer, having cropped up in the recent resort collections of Emilio Pucci, Emporio Armani and Moschino, amongst others. The spaghetti straps nod to fashion’s ongoing obsession with minimalism, while the voluminous cut gives the piece a bohemian, casual vibe. This pleated chiffon ‘Obbo’ dress from Danish brand Malene Birger is a dead ringer for Martha’s — but if you’re looking for something even more flowy, check out this ‘Mercury’ silk gown from London-based designer Kalita.A simple black mule is the ideal accessory for this look; the metallic details on Martha’s add a fun element to the look, so choose a similar approach by opting for a shoe with texture, such as this woven style from St Agni, or the ‘Emmy’ mesh mule from Rag & Bone.Martha completes her look with a delicate gold chain to tie everything together. Channel her approach with an understated piece such as this fringe necklace from Saskia Diez and voilà: You’ve got a minimalist summer look that packs a punch. — AFP-Relaxnews [...]

LOS ANGELES, Aug 18 — Taking advantage of a little peaceful downtime before the excitement of September’s fashion weeks, models and fashion icons are sharing snaps on social networks. The looks on show offer their followers an ideal source of inspiration for summer hairstyles and makeup. On Thursday, August 16, Jasmine Sanders, who goes by ‘Golden Barbie’ on social media, surprised her followers with a sophisticated low chignon, the perfect complement to her chic, sexy dress.Some fashionistas take advantage of their vacations to give their skin and hair time to breathe, but not Jasmine Sanders who has no intention of letting herself go while on vacation. Having spent a few days in Bermuda with her hair done in tight braids, the actress and model has landed in Sardinia, where she is experimenting with a series of sophisticated looks.The latest of these is a refined low chignon, which can be seen on her Instagram. In this particular photo, the very discreet bun is positioned on the nape of her neck, while the rest of her hair is dampened and slicked back with a subtle wet-look effect. It’s a look that wouldn’t be out of place on the most elegant of red carpets, but it might be almost too refined for a simple trip to the beach. — AFP-Relaxnews [...]
