London’s Royal College of Art has just been named the best university for art and design, according to the World Universities Ranking by networking organization QS. The QS system measures schools based on their reputation, the number of international students, and the ratio of faculty members to students. Parsons The New School and the Rhode Island School of Design were awarded second and third places, respectively. [Dezeen]

The secret life of Frida…

Japanese artist Ishiuchi Miyako ventured to Frida Kahlo’s home in Mexico City to photograph previously unseen clothing and personal items belonging to the late painter. “Frida always receives attention for her extraordinary aspects, but coming into contact with her ordinary side greatly sparked my imagination and inspired me,” Miyako said. The images of her shoes, bodices, and more will be on show at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London between May 14 and July 12. [AnOther]

Dream come true…

“This has been a dream of mine for a very, very long time,” Marc Jacobs said of dressing Cher for last night’s Met Gala. The designer reminisced on his childhood adoration for the singer: “Other boys were out fascinated by other things. I was like, ‘No, I’d really much rather see what Cher’s wearing this week.’” Cher wore an adapted dress from Jacob’s Fall Vreeland-inspired collection, and as described by The New York Times, the pair emerged “as the undisputed couple of the night.” [The New York Times]

Luxury the Jeremy Scott way…

At Condé Nast’s International Luxury Conference, Jeremy Scott reflected on his critics, his use of pop culture motifs, and his celebrity fan base with Suzy Menkes. “I guess it’s just luck that they all love me so much. I feel very fortunate. I mean, Katy, Rihanna, and Miley are all really good friends of mine. They are all genuine friends who I count on and call, and I’ve dressed them all from the very beginning.” [Paris Vogue]

Digital fatigue…

Diesel’s creative director, Nicola Formichetti, has been chosen to cover the latest issue of Adweek. In the magazine, the designer discussed fashion’s reluctance to adapt to new technology, saying, “I feel like, in fashion in general, we are so behind. People have an Instagram account and they think they’re digital,” adding, “we haven’t really invented anything new since, I don’t know, when did they start stitching clothes?” [Adweek]
