Giles Deacon Flexes His Historical Knowledge at Kensington Palace

Over the weekend, British designer Giles Deacon presented a greatest-hits collection in the Orangery of Kensington Palace. Part of Glorious Georges, a series of events celebrating 300 years since King George I ascended to the English throne (and ignited one of the most artistic and lavish periods in British history), the show highlighted Deacon's historical and often cryptic influences, from Georgian interiors and traditional corsetry to Bambi, spiders, and the Turner Prize-winning artist Richard Wright.

Styled by Katie Grand, the boisterously-received collection also featured original archival headpieces by Stephen Jones, culled from Deacon's longstanding collaboration with the milliner extraordinaire. Not to miss out on the fun, many of Deacon's model-muses, too, were in attendance, both in the seats and on the runway, including Erin O’Connor, Jessica Stam, Jacquetta Wheeler, Tatiana Cotliar, and Catherine McNeil, who closed the show in a stunning red ostrich feather and chiffon gown.

Just the Pics, Please: Charlie Le Mindu Haute Coiffure

When the hair stylist extraordinaire Charlie Le Mindu isn't creating elaborate headpieces destined to grace the craniums of Lady Gaga, Peaches, and many more ladies of the avant-garde, he's staging tonsorial theater during the Paris couture shows that at times feels more like kabuki theater. He calls it, fittingly, haute coiffure. Last season his theme was Seapunk, in homage to an obscure scene that combines the usual punk accoutrements with elements of sea life. This season's theme could have been Sasquatchpunk, if such a scene exists — and surely it does somewhere...
