Best Posts of 2018 – Fall, Back to School, and Affordable Watches

Last week we recognized the Best Affordable Style of 2018, focusing on the top products pumped out by the retail establishment. This week we’re taking a look back at the best (at least what WE consider the best) of what Dappered had to offer in 2018. Not trying to toot our own horn here. Consider this more of an exercise in recognizing what was popular with the Dappered readers, so we continue to create informative content in the New Year. And by the way, to those Dappered readers: thanks.

Inside the Exhibit Where Anna Wintour Watches You From Every Angle

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Just hearing the name “Anna Wintour” can prompt one to sit up straighter. Notorious for her stony demeanor, the matchless editor-in-chief of American Vogue is not just one of the best-known figures in fashion, but a pop-cultural phenomenon in herself.

Her name has become synonymous with fashion insiderism, better-than-thou aloofness, and overworked assistants touting Starbucks coffee cups.

A free-to-enter exhibition from New York City’s THNK1994 Museum and Chicago artist Laura Collins titled “Anna Wintour Double Crossing Her Legs” aims to challenge that image. Over the course of 12 oil acrylic portraits, Collins studied the pretzel-esque, guarded position Wintour is often photographed contorting in during fashion shows.

S.T. Dupont Plots Move Into Watches

NICK OF TIME: Mounir Moufarrige, recently elevated to chairman of S.T. Dupont’s supervisory board, is eager to have the luxury lighter and pen specialist move swiftly into lucrative new categories. Watches are to debut early next year in France, the U.K. and Hong Kong, and Moufarrige said he’s lining up several celebrity pitchmen with huge social media followings. Women’s handbags are up next for the Paris-based company, which had first tested the category in 2011. It also makes an array of men’s leather goods. Moufarrige had previously been vice chairman at S.T. Dupont and succeeds Sharon Flood.
A serial entrepreneur involved in a slew of fashion and luxury firms, Moufarrige revealed he’s also a shareholder in Designer Parfums, which recently sold a majority stake in Jean Patou to LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, which plans to introduce ready-to-wear and accessories under former Nina Ricci and Carven designer Guillaume Henry, as reported. Designer Parfums markets fragrances for the likes of Worth Paris, Ariana Grande, Porsche Design and Naomi Campbell.

Danny Walters watches saucy EastEnders scenes alone

OHMYGOSSIP — Danny Walters watches his saucy ‘EastEnders’ scenes alone – because he doesn’t want his parents or partner to “wind him up” about them.
The former ‘Benidorm’ star’s latest storyline in the BBC One soap has seen his character Keanu Taylor involved in a hot and steamy affair with Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean), but the 25-year-old star “doesn’t take it too well” when his family poke fun at him.
Speaking about his saucy scenes, he said: “I try to watch those alone – as it’s very awkward to watch with my parents or my partner.
“They know I’m playing a character, of course, but they also know not to wind me up because I don’t take it too well.
“I don’t always watch my stuff because I’m my biggest critic. However, I catch up when I can.”
Danny and Letitia have become “great friends” as their characters’ romance scenes have “got more intimate”, and he believes it is important to have plenty of trust when filming such personal segments.
He added: “We’d only had the odd scene together before, so this was my first opportunity to get to know her better.
“As the scenes have got more intimate, we’ve grown as friends, and that’s really important, to have that trust between fellow actors.
“We’re great friends now, and that helps for any worries or anxieties we might have. She knows what she’s doing, and we’re both feeling really comfortable.”
While Danny hadn’t acted alongside the 50-year-old soap veteran much when he was initially handed the plot, he was confident the pair would create “great chemistry”.
He told Inside Soap magazine: “Working with Letitia Dean has given me the opportunity to learn a lot – but it’s also meant that we’ve been able to make an amazing storyline together.
“I knew Letitia and I would create great chemistry on camera – and we have.”
