Fashion, Hip Hop Music and Design: What are designers saying about sexiness, style? What are you most likely to find in an upscale Home, Mansion, Manhattan Loft? magazine (December 2004 issue) published the comments of Hedi Slimane on what's sexy. The following is an excerpt of what he said. He is the Christian Dior menswear designer. In this column, he takes on Hollywood stylists and the French's misguided fashion sense. He is definitely not a French style and couture sympathizer. Is there anyone out there who will give him a few lessons in French couture and culture? "French men can be a little contrived and stiff, and so conservative," he siad. "I think English men have incredible style. Forget the French." Wow! Forget the French!

You may wonder what he'd say about the sex appeal and swagger of Usher Raymond. Would he even appreciate the blingbling master jeweller to the rap artists, NFL players, NBA players? "Sexiness" sounds a little dodgy to me, trying hard with low tricks. It's not about cheap cruising in a cheap outfit but about authentic sexuality. you have it or you don't. No need to dress like a bunny to advertise it.

Furthermore, he added that fashion is totally connected to street culture and has been under the influence of rock since the fifties. "I truly believe the most interesting phenomenon to emerge is this new generation of bands, like the Libertines and Franz Ferdinand. It will, without any doubt, be the most influential movement in men's fashion for the next couple of years.

Hedi has some advice for men. "Every man should own a black jacket that is very well tailored, a white shirt or simple T-shirt, a good pair of jeans, simple black shoes or boots..."

What did he have to say about thin and big, like in thin and big guys? "Thin is better with clothes. Big, in terms of shape, is better without clothes," he said. He soon realized he can't legislate people's taste and choice. He corrected himself soon. "It's a matter of choice and taste. Diets are available for men, too." A question for Hedi could be the following one: How many men have you seen suffering with anorexia nervosa?

He had some good observations about American men. "There is an ease with American men. They have a really particular, casual way to wear sophisticated clothes, which I love." How come he did not say much about American women's high sense of style, fashion and sexiness? All he needs to do to be inspired is to look out through the windows and peer down from the skyscraper? Maybe he can't see these beautiful women of all shapes wearing the best designer clothes on the streets of New York, Chicago, Manhattan Financial district, San Francisco, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Santa Barbara?

The American professionals can be seen wearing designs by Ralph Lauren, Energie, Abercombie & Fitch, Y-3, Hermes, Paul Smith accessories, Ermenegildo Zegna, Banana republic, Barbour, Jean Paul Gaultier.

Fashion is on the street. It starts on the runways but ultimately finds validity on the streets by pedestrians and passersby who are shocked to notice it.

Celebrities' Fashion Can Inspire Prom, Homecoming & Quincenera
Topic: Prom-inthe-Hamptons

Well-known Taylors and Fashion Designers Who Dress Stars Can Also Inspire Promgirls, Homecomingqueens, and Quinceneras Girls

This year's designers of prom dresses and gowns don't need to look far. They can get inspired by the fashion designers whose designs are worn by the Golden Gloves and Oscar stars. Homecoming queens and promgirls can walk down their own red carpet in glorious chiffon gowns too. They need to keep in mind that brown is the new black this year. For example, at the recent Golden Gloves awards, there were a lot of subtle colors, lots of cuts on the red carpet.

You too can turn heads at your ceremony. It's just a matter of taking the time to look for what fits you. If it does not fit with your silhouette, your body's contours and profile, don't buy it! That's what most fashionistas will advise you right off the bat. Now to help you, take a look at some of the dresses and gowns that may inspire you. Remember that trends will pass. They will soon be obsolete. Fashion-savvy people tend to move on to the next hot thing. If you are looking for a classic design for your prom night, if you want to distinguish yourself, separate yourself from the rest of the crowd, then you will want to go with the classic cuts offered by the likes of Jovani Classic Prom dresses, Alyce, Riva, Mori Lee etc.

Promgilrs and homecoming queens can't go wrong with a silk satin gown with spaghetti straps that hug their shoulders. How about a beautiful tailored ballgown with a satin shawl? You can also find dresses that can be worn for prom, special parties and bridesmaids. Feel elegant and sexy with these affordable dresses! Feel like a princess or a queen for the night!

The beautiful dresses and gowns worn by stars and the Hot Designers who Design Them:

1. Hilary Swank looked great in a simple Calvin Klein gown. 2. Check out Teri Hatcher wearing a stretch Donna Karan gown. 3. Eva Longoria looked superb in an Oscar de la Renta dress. 4. Check out the long train of Cate Blachett's Jean-Paul Gaultier gown. It's the kind of dress for a carefree party, an easy Spring afternoon. 5. Diane Lane's wore a Monique Lhuillier jade chiffon gown. 6. Nicole Kidman went with a Gucci dress with a blue peachock feather detail on it. 7. John Galliano dressed Charlize Theron for Christian Dior. 8. Emmy Rossum wore a sophisticated Ralph Lauren dress. 9. Vintage Valentino for Jennifer Garner who also had a 12-carat diamond crescent by Harry Winston. 10. Kate Hudson wore a chocolate brown gown by Versace. 11. Vera Wang dressed Mariska Hargitay in a pink, dusty-rose satin gown. 12. Renee Zellweger went with a black dress by Carolina Herrera. 13. Minnie Drive had a Randoph Duke, V-neck gown with floral embroidery. 14. Star Jones Reynolds wore a $7 million diamond brooch from Chopard. That's enough to turn a few heads and attract attention to E! Entertainment. The mother-daughter duo, TV Guide Channel's Joan and Melissa Rivers only wore black. Now that's enough for a good competition between the two programs on the red carpet. 15.

Now are you ready the Oscars? The Golden Globes Awards ceremony is like a dress rehearsal for the Oscars. The dresses worn tonight will also influence many prom girls, quincenera girls and homecoming queens to shop for the same dresses and gowns. Who does not like to appreciate a well-designed dress worn by an elegant woman?
