Jennifer Hudson in Pamella Roland
Jennifer Hudson looked incredible in a fully sequined Pamella Roland jumpsuit during last week’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. She channeled inductee disco queen Donna Summer during her performance and has never looked better. Gorgeous, Jennifer! You can view more at JustJared.com.
Pamella recently read Amanda Mackenzie Stuart’s biography on Diana Vreeland — Empress of Fashion. She’s always followed and respected Diana’s career and highly recommended the book to everyone in the showroom. Soon enough, we all had our noses buried in it.
We recently stumbled upon an article which includes a compilation of Diana’s most famous quotes, and because she was so full of insight, we thought we’d share. A few of our favorites include:
“Unshined shoes are the end of civilization.”
“Style – all who have it share one thing: originality.”
“Where would fashion be without literature?”
“You know the greatest thing is passion, without it what have you got? I mean if you love someone you can love them as much as you can love them but if it isn’t a passion, it isn’t burning, it isn’t on fire, you haven’t lived.”
CFDA and eBay: You Can’t Fake Fashion
The Council of Fashion Designers of America and eBay are in their third year raising awareness against counterfeit goods and celebrating original design within the fashion industry through the You Can’t Fake Fashion initiative. This year’s designers, including pamella roland, submitted tote bags in one-of-a-kind designs that are being auctioned exclusively on eBay to benefit the CFDA Foundation.
A few words about the program from the CFDA’s Chief Executive Officer, Steven Kolb:
“Since 2011, CFDA has partnered with eBay to advance the You Can’t Fake Fashion initiative. Educating shoppers about the dangers of counterfeits is now more important than ever, and it’s an issue that’s incredibly important to both eBay and CFDA. With 90 designers on board this year, each customizing a bag as one-of-a-kind to show their support, eBay and CFDA are dedicated to protecting original design and the integrity of the fashion industry.”
