Why Dior's granny pants are fashion's hottest buy right now

Why Dior's granny pants are fashion's hottest buy right now

The hottest ticket in fashion right now isn't a $2000 Gucci backpack, or even a pair of the latest Balenciaga "it" boots. It's a pair of AU$1250 ($1370) underwear. Yes, underwear.

At a Dior gala on Saturday night and then at the MTV Video Music Awards, the J'adior underwear set by Christian Dior was the most coveted (and exposed) item of clothing.

At the VMAs, Paris Jackson, daughter of the late Michael Jackson, wore the briefs under a floral and tarot symbol embroidered midi-length gown.

The granny pants, designed by Dior's creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, are so hot there is a pair selling for $US1500 ($2067) on eBay. And before you ask, they are unworn.

Making your own underwear is a savvy commercial decision by Chiuri, the first female creative director of the house, considering many of the dresses from her collections are sheer, or semi-sheer.

The straps on the underwear bear the Christian Dior name in bold upper-case font, a nod to the 1990s style of labels such as Calvin Klein and not at all a hallmark of classic Dior, which tends to whisper, not shout, its credentials on its garments.

Chiuri has stepped out of the box compared to her predecessors, a big call considering Dior alumni include John Galliano and current Calvin Klein creative director Raf Simons.

Last year, she sent the "We should all be feminists" T-shirt down the runway, making both a political statement and elevating the statement T-shirt – and the House of Dior – into the post-Trump zeitgeist.

Since its release, the underwear set has been worn by everyone from Charlize Theron to Bella Hadid.

And on Saturday night, stars bearing their knickers along the red carpet in Australia at the National Gallery of Victoria's Dior gala included David Jones ambassador Jesinta Franklin, Canadian model Winnie Harlow, actress Olympic Valance and model Akiima.

Most of the celebrities dressed by Dior for the night would have had to return their outfits afterwards. One can only assume they get to keep the underwear.

Kiana Valenciano’s Outfit

Kimonos to Cop Inspired by Kiana Valenciano’s Outfit

A kimono is a very versatile outerwear piece. You can wear it on a night out or even at the beach. There are denim and velvet ones you can get if you need more warmth. You can also pick chambray and silk ones as a light cover-up.

While on a trip to Tagaytay, Kiana Valenciano chose a handwoven kimono from PioPio to keep her warm. She paired with a white T-shirt and shorts for a casual look. We’ve put together a list of kimonos you can cop now inspired by Kiana’s blue and white piece.

Topshop Velvet Wrap Kimono Jacket

Velvet is still a trend in the fashion world so grab a kimono that flaunts that fabric. This one from Topshop comes in a mint color and has a waist tie so you can wear it closed. If you want to wear a head to toe velvet look, these have matching shorts too.

Mango Floral Denim Kimono

If your current favorite jacket is denim, go for this floral denim kimono. It is a medium wash with long sleeves. It has two chest pockets and two side pockets, enough space for all your valuables.

Casa Nata Kimono Jacket

A black outerwear piece is an essential for everyone’s closet. This kimono is made of stretch cotton and has a structured silhouette. Pair this with jeans for a casual look or a dress for a more formal outfit.

Zara Shiny Silk Jacquard Kimono

If you’re into shiny, gold clothing, add this kimono to your shopping cart. It is made of slik and has a tuxedo lapel collar and cuffs made of a fur-like material. It also features two front pockets and a fabric belt.

River Island Tiered Broderie Kimono

A kimono also works great as a beach cover up. This chambray kimono is lightweight, so you can wear this at the beach without feeling too hot. It also has scallop edges and white details, giving it a feminine look.

Lily Kwong's Living Botanical Installation in L.A.

Inside Floral Architect Lily Kwong's Living Botanical Installation in L.A.

Fresh off its New York City launch last month, model turned floral architect Lily Kwong's botanical installation in collaboration with St-Germain liqueur landed in Los Angeles for a one-night-only visual experience Wednesday at the legendary Houdini Estate in the Hollywood Hills. A mix of L.A.'s cool kids — Olivia Culpo, Dita Von Tease, stylist Johnny Wujek, Cleo Wade and Michelle Trachtenberg — were on the scene, while D.J. Chelsea Leyland spun some tunes.

The floral architect's vision was to cultivate an immersive discovery experience for modern "bon vivants." Says Kwong: "I was deeply inspired by the project site. I wanted to layer the landscape with dynamic performances and art pieces ranging from dance to archival 'magic' projected films to a sound installation featuring sacred tones."

The visual experience featured elements of magical realism and illusions; magicians, a performance by art organization No)one. Art House, improvisational sound art by Patrick Belaga and Celtic tarot reading were enjoyed by guests throughout the five-acre property. Vintage black-and-white films were projected in gazebos, and the creation of a "Light Maison," made out of projected lights and hanging flowers, was a highlight among guests who flocked to snap photos.

"Lily's take for L.A. includes discovery moments throughout the estate that still has caves, hidden tunnels, and terraced gardens," says St-Germain brand ambassador Camille Ralph Vidal. "Her romantic-yet-whimsical journey celebrates the joyful decadence of summer indulgence, with an opportunity for guests to enjoy a rare fleeting moment of exuberance in the spirit of 1920s années folles."

Following the event, all florals were donated to 14th Factory Gallery in downtown Los Angeles to accompany the "Garlands" installation's disassembly, creating a one-day pop-up floral shop experience, where flowers will be gifted to the community of Lincoln Heights and greater Los Angeles.
