Kate Hudson’s Mermaid Beauty


It’s not just baby season in Hollywood. Yesterday we reported our fashion fav mom Victoria Beckham gave birth, and today its bohemian goddess, Kate Hudson. Congrats Kate, on your baby boy!

Kate’s soft mermaid- whimsical like style has been a fan favorite of RT for a while now. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite Kate Hudson style choices.


Rebecca Black Thia Megia and Everyone in Between?

We’re all fans of American Idol here at Rag Trade Disciples. So much, in fact that we jumped for joy when this season’s Idol lowered the age bar for auditions and allowed 15 year olds to compete. This season had tons of great youngsters on its roster that at one point included tons of 90s babies including 16-year olds Lauren Alaina, Thia Megia, Brett Loewenstern and tons others that didn’t even make it to the top 24 :: sigh::

So with all this 16-year old success, we are wondering are the Rebecca Black’s and Justin Bieber’s of the world the new dawn of pop music?

Season Six of Heidi Klum’s Project Runway Gears Up to Kick-Off


This year alone,the radiant Heidi Klum has managed to surpass Kate Moss, in annual earnings, catapulting her to the number two spot, of highest paid supermodels ($14 million). She’s earned a prestigious Peabody Award, given to excellence in media, which by the way has made Project Runway the first reality show in history to recieve such an award. Not to mention she’s a wife, and mother to three small children.

With 6 season’s of TV network Bravo thrown over her shoulder, the rumor-mill has been spinning with the talks of Project Runway moving their tapings entirely to the City of Lost Angels. TV executives for the network, on the contrary, have extinguished the rumors by clarifying the split; taping in both New York and Los Angeles is temporary, and plan to continue taping entirely in New York, for the 7th season.

Klum is the quintessential media tycoon, that in essence puts the “super” in supermodel by dint of sheer hard work and determination. Gracing the covers of Elle, Vogue, Sports Illustrated and Marie Claire magazines, no one bears in comparison to her ground breaking achievements with Bravo’s–or should we say soon to be Lifetime‘s, reality show Project Runway.

Auf Wiedersehen Bravo

Lam You, Very much:

Derek Lam’s Spring 2008 Collection Finds Inspiration from the Celestial Body Where Humans Live


Relatively regarded as newcomer to the Rag Industry, Derek Lam has managed to manifest amazing designs with his innate sense of detail and construction. As a home-grown San Franciscan–like myself , Derek Lam infuses elements of our “mother-earth” in his latest collection. With muted greens,saturated blues, warm neutrals and soft animal print pieces–  this collection’s inspiration appears to have gotten it’s cues from the untouched jungles of the Amazon and the wetlands of Southeast Asia.

His collection embodies everything that is feminine with his soft silhouette and abundant use of sheer and dainty textiles. Soft wave ringlets adorned on the heads of the models in his Spring 2008 collection fuels the fire to the super femme aura exuded from his collection.
