An Anna Wintour book? Sure. A movie? Perhaps. But a musical inspired by the Vogue EIC? Brace yourselves--it's happening, people. Ryan Raftery, the creator of the show, titled Ryan Raftery Is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion, got the idea after seeing the famously icy Wintour on the street where, according to him, she grimaced in his direction. "She’s Darth Vader and Hilary Clinton in one little package," he explained. Having run out of material for his solo act Raftery decided to use the encounter with Wintour as inspiration for a new show. The controversial Kimye Vogue cover is the basis for the plot--Raftery paints the picture that Wintour believes she'll be fired for it, causing her to reflect on her life. And while we know the musical is meant to be funny (Raftery changed the lyrics of Chicago's "Class" to "Flats," as in the shoe style), we can't help but think it'll also be just a little bit glamorous. It is Anna Wintour, after all.
Rita Ora's collection for Adidas is set to launch on August 21, and fans of the singer will be happy to know a teaser video has been released. In it, Ora can be seen wearing pieces from the collection and narrating, "Goodbye, barriers and obstacles. So long to everything holding me back. Believe in yourself and you can become anything." And Ora may be living proof of that. The "How We Do" singer went from selling sneakers as a kid, to designing a collection for one of the biggest sneaker labels in the industry. "I grew up working at a sneaker store when I was 16 and am a huge sneaker head. It's so cool that I'm able to do this with a brand that I sold when I was younger," she said in an interview with WWD back in May. The 21st is just ten short days away, but if you can't wait until then, be sure to check out the video.
We realize we may cause a frenzy here, but we would be remiss if we didn't share this news with our readers. And we have to say, this is all just speculation at this point, as RiRi herself has not commented. But, the 26-year old singer purchased the trademark for Fenty, her last name, for several categories, including apparel, beauty, cosmetics, swimwear, and lingerie. She's already collaborated with River Island on three collections, and has a wildly fabulous collection with MAC Cosmetics, so an eponymous line may just be in the works. Stay tuned!
