Last week the Cancer Support Community (CSC) hosted the 11th Annual “In Fashion!” Luncheon & Fashion Show at Saks Fifth Avenue on City Avenue. Nearly 100 ladies lunched, mingled and checked out fashions featuring special guest designer Johnson Hartig of Libertine.

This man is called Jeff Langum. He is a 39-year-old web designer from Voorhees, New Jersey. Last month he deservedly won “Best in Show” (yes) at the National Beard Championship (yes) in New Orleans. Next up: The world.
Philadelphia has conquered Project Runway once more, this time with 24-year-old Dom Streater of the Moore College of Art & Design taking the winner’s spot for the show’s 12th season. Philly’s last winning contestant was Jay McCarroll, who took the top prize back in the show’s first season.
On Monday night, the Fourth Annual XIX Most Fashionable Women in Philadelphia were honored at the restaurant XIX in the Hyatt at the Bellevue. The women (listed alphabetically) include Andrea Agnew, Angela Val, Dr. Beatriz Garces, Bele Shehu, Courtney Apple, Desiree Peterkin-Bell, Diane Dalto Woosnam, Dianne Semingson, Eden Kratchman, Elizabeth Wellington, Heather McDaniel, MPH, Heidi Hamels, Karen Daroff, Kate Wilhelm Chimicles, Kazumi Teune, Kristin Gavin, Patricia Coulter, Robert Gruber and Wendy Crawford. Also photographed are Babs Snyder, Mayor Michael Nutter, Janice Waitkus and Steven Lagos.
Six months after announcing she was leaving her longtime Rittenhouse outpost (“We’re definitely not wanted here.”), Joan Shepp has found a new home. And it’s not so far away after all. Tears can now be dried.
Technically she is moving to the Wells’ Fargo building and the address will be Broad Street, Broad and Walnut, which is even more impressive; but she’s actually moving to the backside of the building…the corner with the big windows.
As Hughe Dillon points out, the building was also featured in the movie Trading Places.
Summer is nearing its end. There’s about five weeks left until the solstice, but we all know the unofficial end of summer is what really matters. Labor Day isn’t even sneaking up on us: The stores are filled with Halloween candy. Bars are already stocking pumpkin beer for the messed-up people who think it’s okay to drink pumpkin-flavored things in August.
That means it’s time for an update! As part of Philly mag’s ongoing ownership of tacky Wildwood boardwalk T-shirt coverage, I headed down the shore this weekend. And it turned out the popular T-shirts have changed much since my last piece at the beginning of summer.
“Pull your pants up!”
The simple refrain, ordinarily from the mouths of grandmothers, becomes more complicated as a government mandate or talking point from pundits.
While no longer the fashion du jour (it seems that most are opting to stay on-trend with skinny jeans) there is a lingering fixation to quell sagging pants as a means to alleviate all the bad behavior that supposedly comes with it.

One advantage the Eagles will have over the Steelers this year, at least for a game: team wardrobe. Reprising the very busy throwback 1930s yellow-and-black-striped unis they dug out of storage last year, Pittsburgh will again resemble bumblebees in 2013. Team president Art Rooney II says he’s still trying to work out details with the NFL to decide when to bust out the alternates. The NFL, in response, probably said: “Do you really want to do this?”
Either they’re willingly committing fashion suicide or they’re filming a new version of The Longest Yard. [WTAE]
