Good as gold…

Anna Ewers turned heads when she arrived at the CFDA Awards last night wearing a dazzling gold Alexander Wang micromini. But what may surprise you is that the dress was actually made from 500 gold American Express credit cards. Each card was laser cut to form paillettes and then put together to create the long-sleeved mini. Perhaps an homage to Lizzy Gardiner’s American Express card Oscars gown from 1995? [Vogue]

It pays to look good…

Celebrity stylist Jessica Paster has revealed the true cost of a red-carpet gown. According to the woman behind Emily Blunt and Miranda Kerr’s standout style, a celebrity can be paid between $100,000 and $250,000 to wear a dress on the red carpet. Paster said, “If it looks gorgeous and this is the dress you were going to pick anyway, why not get paid?” [The Telegraph]

Caitlyn’s closet…

Jessica Diehl, Vanity Fair’s fashion and style director, sat down to discuss what it was like to style Caitlyn Jenner for her history-making cover. “We couldn’t really prepare the way we normally prepare,” Diehl revealed. “Normally we go to, I don’t know, Valentino or Armani, and say we are shooting a cover and ask if they can give us some clothes [to borrow]. For this, I had to go into stores incognito.” Diehl also discussed Jenner’s input in the styling: “She has certain ideas about what she feels great in,” she said, explaining that Jenner is “all-American in so many ways.” [Vanity Fair]

A Mizrahi retrospective…

The Jewish Museum is set to hold a retrospective to honor Isaac Mizrahi. The exhibit, which will be the first museum exhibition dedicated to the designer, will focus on Mizrahi’s designs at his own label from 1987 to 1998, his “semi-couture” line from 2003 to 2011, and his Target collaborations from 2002 to 2008. The exhibit is set to open on March 18 next year and will run through August 7. [WWD]

Speaking Stephen Jones’ language…

We all know that Stephen Jones is the master of headwear, but to him his creations are more than just accessories. In a recent interview, Jones delved deep into the transformative nature of hats and explained that people who use hats are “communicating in an interesting way through what they are wearing. Hats are communication, basically, hats are a language.” We’d venture that a cap says “fun,” while a fascinator says “up for anything!” [1Granary]
