Style Scoop: Conde Nast Nixes Its Blogger Platform and Lupita Nyong’o’s Gown Goes Missing


NowManifest, the Condé Nast-owned blogging platform, is shutting down. Since it's launch in 2009, and then its Condé Nast acquisition in 2012, NowManifest has been a hot-spot for some of the biggest fashion and style bloggers in the game, including Rumi Neeley of Fashion Toast (pictured above left), Susie Lau of Susie Bubble, Bryan Boy, Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat, Derek Blasberg, and Anna Dello Russo. The brand sites a shift in attention to in-hour digital properties as the force behind the closure. [Refinery 29]

In more bad news, Lupita Nyongo'o's show-stopping Calvin Klein Oscars gown is gone. Reportedly, the $150,000 custom-made dress, which features 6,000 hand-sewn pearls, was stolen out of the actress's hotel room on the day after the 2015 Academy Awards. [Harper's Bazaar]

Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci had some real-talk with Details Magazine regarding his role in styling Kim Kardashian over the last couple of years. “[She was accepted] by nobody,” he explains. “And she's a sweet girl. And Kanye and me, we did it together. Every designer is dying to dress her now. I didn't care what people thought about Kim. In the beginning, I met her because of my respect for Kanye, and then I liked her a lot and we became friends. I got killed because of this. But I didn't care.” Alrighty then. [Marie Claire]

Karl Lagerfeld's special lady was nowhere to be found at this week's Fendi fall 2015 show. Cara Delevingne skipped the show for the Brit Awards instead (fellow catwalk-er Karlie Kloss managed to make both) despite having opened the past three seasons for Fendi. []
