Lizzo and Jeremy Scott Discuss the Transformative Power of Style at Vogue’s Forces of Fashion Summit

When they connected for today’s conversation at Vogue’s Forces of Fashion summit, Lizzo and Jeremy Scott were many miles apart—the former in Mexico, where she’s currently working on her new album, and the latter at home in Los Angeles. Yet within seconds, the two friends and collaborators instantly hit upon their usual quick-fire rapport, with Lizzo kicking off proceedings in her typically upbeat style by asking: “Are we talking about the fashion, the clothing, the oohs, the aahs?” 

Not before catching up on politics, of course. While conversation quickly turned to the recent election results, with both describing the palpable sense of relief they felt after hearing of Joe Biden’s victory last week, the pair then dived into another subject close to their hearts: the various ways they have strived to change more outdated attitudes within the fashion industry from the inside.

“Making the Cut” winner Jonny Cota knows something about one of the industry’s most burning questions: Is Amazon really interested in fashion?

“It’s tricky…” said the Los Angeles designer outside his retail store opening Aug. 1 at Row DTLA, which will be the exclusive brick-and-mortar store carrying the Jonny Cota Studio “Metamorphosis” collection that launched in April on Amazon after he won the fashion reality competition series and $1 million prize.

“Customers today are responding more to a lifestyle element, the way things are shot, getting rid of the white background, showing a little more realness, and Amazon is not there,” he said, while acknowledging Amazon’s systems (at least pre-pandemic) are exceptional. “Right now, guidelines are very strict, every background needs to be white, there can’t be a single accessory unless the thing is sold in the photo. This caters to an

Kate Middleton’s Most-Loved Summer Shoe Is Comfort Meets Style at Its Finest

Summer is here, and the sandals have come out of hiding. You’ve likely made some sacrifices for the sake of breathable style in the past (sky-high heels, uncomfortable wedges, and unsupportive flip-flops are just some pain-inducing culprits), but as we’ve said time and again, comfy, fashion-forward shoes do actually exist — and Kate Middleton just reminded us about one of the most classic seasonal footwear stunners in the game: good ol’ espadrilles.

If you follow Middleton’s style closely, you’ll know the royal is as loyal as can be to her wardrobe favorites. Eyelet anything, like airy dresses and pretty blouses, resurface like clockwork come summertime; floral midi dresses also make up a large chunk of the duchess’ warm-weather attire. And lace-up espadrilles are perhaps her most-loved shoe this time of year.

Subjectively speaking, face masks are hot. The biggest trend of 2020 serves as a visual reminder that the wearer is civically minded, cares about their community, and isn’t some #Plandemic conspiracy theorist/truther. All attractive qualities.

Maybe you do not agree with that subjective statement, but I think we can all get behind one objective fact: face masks are literally hot. It’s not quite breathable to stuff one’s snout under layers of cotton. So we sweat. A lot. 

How Tim Kaine, in Face Mask Bandana, Became the Senate’s Coolest Cowboy

How one chooses to mop up their perspiration can be the stuff of awkwardness. Yesterday, I wiped down my forehead with a crumbled old CVS receipt found in the bottom of my backpack. Others have their wicking game down. See: dudes in bandanas.
