Christopher John Rogers’s SS21 Show Made Natural Beauty Look Glam

Ever since his New York Fashion Week debut, Christopher John Rogers has turned his shows into one of the most anticipated events during fashion month. And while the coronavirus pandemic has changed what fashion week looks like, CJR still managed to put on quite the show on October 6, thanks to the CFDA’s Runway 360. 

The clothes shown on the platform were reminiscent of many of his past collections. Pieces were colorful, daring, and eye-catching. Inspired by happiness, this collection sparked pure joy. To achieve said joy, which is very much needed these days, Christopher chose life itself as his standpoint. In particular: Childhood and its seemingly limitless playfulness.

Using Amika’s Headstrong Intense Hold Hairspray, she sculpted sky-reaching styles, such as the towering Afros and chandelier-like braids. “The towering crown look was a labor of love inspired by the Zulu women of South Africa and their traditional braided headdresses,” says LaFond, adding that she wrapped pre-loc-ed hair extensions around a cylinder base and added pieces of textured hair to “break up the texture and make it feel more lived-in.”

For the flying braids, which were inspired by LaFond’s daughter, Milah, she was going for a nostalgia meets futurism. “Creating this look reminded me of getting

OPINION: Pregnancy loss is devastating, which is why those who’ve experienced it deserve to do whatever they need to access healing.

The photos released by Chrissy Teigen and John Legend should be revered for the gift that they are. As celebrities, they had no choice but to make their loss public, but they didn’t simply share their loss, they gave us images that let us in on their grief, and for that we should be grateful.

Losing a pregnancy is a special kind of grief. You mourn for everything that could have been. For hopes and dreams that will never be fulfilled. While some form of pregnancy loss impacts 10-25% of all pregnancies, and many women will experience more than one loss, we still struggle to talk about it, and often judge the women who do.
