October has only just begun, but in the world of fashion, it’s the end of a very full month, one replete with miles of runway, countless parties and street style for days — or Fashion Weeks, if you will. Fashion Month’s four-week marathon came to an end on Tuesday. It began in New York City, with stops in London, Milan and Paris before reaching its final destination in Paris in late September. There was plenty to do and lots of people to see. BeObserved and more than a bit of controversyBefore the month was over. We’ve got a recap of its highlights and much more of this week’s fashion in TheGrio Style Guide.

Vogue’s November cover star may destroy you

It’s fair to say “Wakanda Forever”The highly anticipated sequel to the acclaimed “Fever” is now officially here. “Black Panther”In just over a month, they dropped a lot. Fueling that fire is one of the franchise’s newest stars — and Vogue’s November cover star, screenwriter and actress Michaela Coel. Creator and lead actress of streaming hits, Emmy- and BAFTA-winning creator “Chewing Gum”And “I May Destroy You” is clearly ready for her big-screen closeup, styled by Off-White’s Ib KamaraGucci made-to-measure chartreuse sequin gown with a chartreuse sash. Photographed and styled by Malick BodianAccra, Ghana

Coel will be playing the role of the antagonist in the sequel, “Black Panther”Vogue spoke to Ryan Coogler, director “Aneka, the character Michaela plays, is kind of a rebel…It made a lot of meta sense with Michaela being someone who is pushing the industry forward and carving out her own space.”

Comic-book fans will recognize Aneka’s role as a Dora Milaje combat instructor and captain, as well the first openly gay character to be introduced in the film franchise. The latter was a selling point for Coel, especially in light of Ghana’s deeply anti-gay political policies, which are becoming increasingly dangerous to LGBTQ+ citizens. “That sold me on the role, the fact that my character’s queer,” she tells Vogue’s Chioma Nnadi in the cover story. “I thought: I like that, I want to show that to Ghana.”

However, Coel’s involvement was equally about furthering the legacy of the late Chadwick Boseman. “There was a sense that we have to bring this baby home in the name of Chadwick,”She spoke out for the magazine. “I thought to myself, I’m rolling up my sleeves and I’m getting in. I don’t need to be front and center, I’m here to support.”

Beyoncé revives summer for Tiffany & Co.

Okay, so they may not be the visuals we’Since the release of, we’ve all been anticipating this moment. “Renaissance” in July, but Bey is back to let us know summer isn’t over yet. She released a new promo on Wednesday with luxury jeweler Tiffany & Co. “Lose Yourself in Love.”Set to “Summer Renaissance,” the black-and-white visuals give us a minute-long glimpse of the wall-to-wall party hosted by Beyoncé that we’ve been envisioning since the album dropped — a version of which apparently occurred as Fashion Month’s closing event in Paris on Tuesday night.

“This made me want to relive the party,” commented Kerry Washington in response to the promo on Bey’s IG page, cruelly reminding us exactly what we missed out on, our invite clearly having been lost in the mail). So please, Bey — release the visuals!

Fashion Month’s French Exit

From Sept. 8 to Oct. 4, fashion’s four global capitals once again rolled out their red carpets and runways for Fashion Month. But Paris remains the pinnacle of luxury fashion, and its Fashion Week did not disappoint, teasing the trends and collections that will be dropping for Spring-Summer 2023, as well as attracting some of the world’s most stylish celebrities — including Zendaya, Janet Jackson, Erykah Badu, Doja Cat, and more. Oh, and for the grand finale, Tiffany & Co. hosted a party in honor of its campaign star, Beyoncé.

So, who were all at Paris Fashion Week this year?

Zendaya went dark at Valentino

Zendaya made headlines for shutting it down at the Valentino Womenswear Spring/Summer 2023 show, for which the brand ambassador was one of the few to eschew Valentino’s PinkPP shade, which has dominated fashion since the label’s all-pink Fall 2022 collection. Instead, V opted for an all-black, stunningly sheer ensemble to attend the SS ’03 presentation on October 02, 2022 in Paris, France. (Photo by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images).

Off-White becomes blue in “Celebration”Virgil Abloh

Off-White’s Spring-Summer 2023 collection was a colorful celebration of late founder Virgil AblohThe collection was filled with African rhythms, and centered around a vibrant blue hue that Abloh, a Ghanaian-American designer, greatly favored. Taking place on Thursday, the eve of what would’ve been Abloh’s 42nd birthday, the first collection designed by his successor and collaborator Ib Kamara debuted on the Paris Fashion Week runway in a presentation aptly titled “Celebration.”

“We’re embracing blue as a color in the brand, and it’s something we are passionate about as we move forward,”According to the Sierra Leonean designer Women’s Wear Daily. “Blue is otherwordly. It’s alien, but it’s human. It’s explorative. It’s a vulnerable color.”

“Off-White Blue” — best described as an emotion-inducing electric blue — will reportedly also be registered with proprietary color specialists Pantone. As WWD notes, the hue would no doubt have Abloh’s approval, as it’s the same shade he used on the cover of his “Figures of Speech”exhibition catalog in 2019 as well as the opening garment for his Fall 2021 Off White presentation in Paris.

“He really created conversation and disruption in the most beautiful way, so there’s evidence of that in this collection, I think,”Kimara is also editor in chief of Dazed magazine. She is also a sought-after stylist within the luxury sector. “A beautiful thing that [Virgil] did was [that he said] luxury doesn’t have a color, it’s for everyone, and he really investigated that to the very end.”

The Met Gala — but (why) make it Lagerfeld?

Via media partners Vogue, the Met Gala officially announced its 2023 theme on Friday, which will be an homage to the late Karl Lagerfeld, one of the fashion industry’s most legendary — and controversial — figures. Lagerfeld’s over 65-year career included helms at European luxury houses Balmain, Patou, Chloé, Fendi, Chanel, and his eponymous label, making the German designer one of the industry’s most influential up until his death in 2019. It’s a legacy Jared Leto has newly announced he will be exploring in a biopic, and one the Met is also eager to commemorate, even if doing so somewhat contradicts Lagerfeld’s own ethos.

“[H]e was always looking to the future in his own work — he hated looking back at the past,” Andrew Bolton, the Costume Institute’s Wendy Yu Curator in Charge, told Vogue. “It was something he had a very conflicted relationship with.”

Similarly, many have conflicted feelings about honoring Lagerfeld on the first Monday in May, given the designer’s often “cruel”insensitive demeanor. As noted by Buzzfeed, this included Lagerfeld’s vocal disdain for more inclusive casting in fashion; in 2009, The GuardianAccording to the designer, it was as follows: “no one wants to see round women.”He also spoke of models with thinner bodies, confusingly. “They aren’t deliberately skinny because they want to be models, they’ve probably had family problems or suffered from other traumas.”

As Buzzfeed further notes, Lagerfeld’s not-so-hot takes also extended to sexual assault; he reportedly sent flowers to accused rapist Dominique Strauss-Kahn and openly scorned the #MeToo movement. Lagerfeld was also known for putting Claudia Schiffer, supermodel, on display without regard for ethnic differences. in blackface and yellowfaceIn an editorial campaign for 2010, the author referred to Muslims as the “worst enemies”2017: Jewish People

So Why?Vogue and The Met feel that this is a fashion icon worthy of celebration? Despite numerous calls to boycott this event the official Met Gala Instagram announcementNeither entity has commented on the controversy. It will be interesting, however, to see which celebs turn up. “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty”May 1,

The biggest news at the 10th Annual Fall Fashion Gala was without a doubt the debut of the “dynamic” ballet “Play Time,”Solange Knowles scored the award The evening was about fashion, with a well-dressed guest list and event chair that included Deborah Roberts (wife Al Roker), Sarah Jessica Parker, Elaine Welteroth and Elverne Cox.

Pharrell bids in the resale auction

Call it the most glamorous garage sale ever: Pharrell Williams is launching an online auction platform to part with his massive collection — reportedly 11 storage units’ worth — of fashion rarities, collaborations and designs. Called “The Auction”. JoopiterThe new online platform will be called “sell the fruits of his journey through the fashion world,”According to Financial TimesWilliams spoke exclusively to a reporter at, who spoke only with Williams about his latest venture.

Williams explained to FT how current auction formats felt too siloed for Williams’ diverse and undeniably expensive collection. “I’m not going to sell furniture on StockX … I’m not going to sell, you know, 20-plus-carat diamond rings on [The] RealReal.”

Williams refers to Joopiter as a “joint”. “high-touch, white-glove’ operation,” will launch on Oct. 11 with an array of the multi-hyphenate mogul’s own “cast-offs,” some of which can be previewed on the new brand’s Instagrampage; prospective buyers may also sign up to receive updates the Joopiter website. Future plans include selling high-end, carefully curated collections as well as a philanthropic element.

Williams’ closet clean-out may be well above most of our pay grades, but his perspective on selling a portion of his fashion legacy is relatably cathartic. “Spiritually it’s a very rich experience, an enlightening experience, to let … stories go,”He spoke to FT.

Sotheby’s celebrates Black brilliance

Pharrell’s not the only Black excellence hitting the auction space. As reported by Women’s Wear Daily, Sotheby’s London is hosting “a selling exhibition of jewelry by Black designers from around the world”Titled “Brilliant & Black: The Age of Enlightenment.”

Melanie GrantThe event is timed to coincide Black History Month in U.K. “jewelers taking part have created at least one new piece in response to the Enlightenment, the movement that swept through Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries, and focused on individualism, intellectual reason, and skepticism,”WWD. This is the second annual installment, having first debuted in New York last January. The 2022 edition features 70 pieces of jewelry from 25 contemporary designers. Prices range from $420 to $1 million.

“Historically, Sotheby’s has represented the curation and presentation of the highest quality and excellence throughout history, and their role is integral in creating generational wealth and value,”Sheryl Jones is a New York City-based designer of luxury jewelry. Sheryl created three pieces to be displayed at the exhibition. “As they showcase designers like me in shows like ‘Brilliant & Black,’ they are expanding the ‘tent,’ and are partners in creating a valuable legacy of Black designers for generations to come.”

Munroe Bergdorf brings British Vogue her moxie

Munroe Bergdorf first came to global attention when she took on L’Oréal after the cosmetics giant fired her — its first transgender U.K. campaign model — for calling out “the racial violence of white people.” Three years later, when she pointed out its hypocrisy in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, L’Oréal rehired Bergdorf in 2019She was clear that she was a force to reckon with.

After co-starring British Vogue’s August 2022 coverBergdorf brings that firebrand energy to the magazine. its newest contributing editorWriting an essay that praises the new adage “richly diverse industry”It acknowledges how far it needs to go, writing:

Fashion shapes us as much as we shape it, which Is why it’s crucial we ensure that all are represented, that difficult subject matter isn’t shied away from, diluted or censored, because fashion isEveryone. Fashion can do more than predict and create trends. It can help to change engrained mindsets and expand beauty standards. It can also spark conversations that have the potential to combat stigma and increase visibility by the representation of marginalized communities and experiences.
