“Oooh, look, it’s Balmain!, said EVERYONE!
On the eve of opening Balmain’s New York flagship, Olivier Rousteing hits the town with Lynn Yaeger.
“Oooh, look, it’s Balmai!n” shrieks a person, whose gender it is impossible to discern in the dark, at the GMHC Latex Ball. Despite the lack of light, the fan insists on a selfie with Olivier Rousteing, and the creative director of Balmain—on a flying visit to his beloved Manhattan from his home in Paris—is happy to oblige.
Rousteing, 30, is in town in anticipation of two major brand-building events. There is the imminent opening of the new Balmain boutique in the U.S., being erected in the heart of SoHo. Designed by Studio KO, the team responsible for London’s Chiltern Firehouse, the shop is meant to evoke an imaginary pied-à-terre that might have belonged to Pierre Balmain, down to the mid-century-modern French furniture. And at the other end of the spectrum—but maybe not!—there’s the just-launched Balmain x H&M collaboration, which offers the designer’s cool, sexed-up vision at extremely reasonable prices.

This is a New York City apartment which was entirely redone to reflect a Dominican Republic Country Home or Casa de Campo as we say in Spanish. All the wall art, murals and canvases are painted by hand, it is not wall paper. This entire apartment from murals to interior decor, was done by my partner Ginger V. and myself. Who said you have to go over seas to live in a “Casa de Campo?” We can create any theme you may have in mind. Just fill out the form below and submit your inquiry.
We’ve already examined whether one must have a pedigree to work at Vogue(short answer: no, though there are some elite commonalities among staffers). So today we’re turning our eye toward a more specific angle: what it might take to become employed by the magazine’s leader herself, Anna Wintour. Much has been made of working under the fashion industry’s most influential woman—insert The Devil Wears Prada reference here—and since rumors and legend are only so satisfying, we decided to gather insight straight from the source herself. We gathered Wintour’s best quotes—some specifically on employee qualities she admires and others that are abstract remarks on traits she respects—to piece together a picture of the editor in chief’s ideal team member.
If you’ve ever dreamed about working at Vogue or if you simply find Wintour intriguing, scroll down to check out what she might be looking for the next time she makes an addition to the masthead.
Future Vogue employees, take note!
Braxton Rocha was badly wounded by a shark two days ago, but that didn’t stop him from posting a very graphic selfie of the wound.
The 27-year-old was spearfishing in waters 60 yards off the coast of Hawaii’s Big Island on Sunday when a 13-foot tiger shark bit his left leg, according the the state Department of Land and Natural Resources.
Rocha reportedly swam back to shore after the attack and a friend called for help. He was then loaded into the back of a private vehicle, where he took a selfie and posted it to Instagram.
“Just got attacked by a tiger shark! Hoo! Going to the hospital,” a grimacing Rocha says to the camera, before pointing it at the gaping wound and missing flesh on his left leg.
Rocha said his original video was removed from Instagram due its graphic nature, but we’ve included a YouTube version at the bottom of this article. If you’re sensitive to blood, cartoonist Drew Toonz recreated a PG cartoon version of Rocha’s selfie.
Rocha was well enough to take another selfie from his hospital bed on Monday night, keeping his friends updated.
“I just wanted to personally thank everyone out there for their kind and loving words and all of the prayers sent my way,” Rocha wrote on his social media pages. “This kanaka [native Hawaiian] ain’t getting taken out that easily!”
He also expressed his respect for the ocean and addressed those who guessed his injury was fake.
“Can’t wait to get back into the water … No matter what, I’ll always love sharks and have so much respect for the top predator,” he wrote.
“To all the people that think my video was fake…all I have to say is I’m quite flattered that you think my badass level is something to admire and put down 😉 can’t help I handled it like a true champ…🙌”
WARNING: The video below is extremely graphic.

The daughter of Ye and Kim Kardashian, dressed in her mini beige hoodie and leggings, was, hands down, the best part of the entire presentation. Judging by the photos of the toddler, she couldn’t care less that she was rubbing shoulders with Anna Wintour and Riccardo Tisci (she is only 2, after all). Or maybe she just knows she’s already more famous than most of the other plebeians who were in attendance. Or maybe, and most likely, she was enjoying her lollipop too much to care about anything else.
(Side note: While North was obviously the star of the show, Jaden Smith’s photo-bomb in this first pic gives him runner-up status. When you see it … )
