The Fashion Scoop: Ralph Lauren introduces The Polo Bar, Maison Martin Margiela quietly drops its middle name

Ralph Lauren introduces The Polo Bar
What is the next best thing,besides shopping in New York city?
The Big bad Apple is known for its delicious cuisine,of course. So it's no surprise that the folks over at Ralph Lauren Ralph Lauren are opening of its first restaurant in New York City: The Polo Bar.  

Ralph Lauren joined the club of fashion brands that have diversified their brands into the food industry,some even opening their restaurants right next door to their shopping stores, in 1999. The Polo Bar is Ralph Lauren’s third restaurant,in early September 2014, Ralph Lauren also opened Ralph’s Coffee, on the second floor of the Polo flagship store at 711 Fifth Avenue, serving custom coffee blends, sandwiches and sweet treats.

The Polo Bar is aptly located next door to the new Polo Ralph Lauren flagship store at Fifth Avenue. The Polo Bar offers a casual yet refined setting for food and drink in the heart of New York. 
Seasonal dishes range from a crispy kale salad and crab cakes to a corned beef sandwich, steaks and the signature Polo Bar Burger. Beef from Ralph Lauren’s Double RL ranch in Colorado will be offered at select times throughout the year. The star of the dessert list is Ralph’s Coffee Ice Cream, homemade with Ralph’s custom coffee blend. On the cocktail list, guests can choose from classic drinks and a diverse selection of wines and other fine spirits. 
The Polo Bar wait staff is outfitted in custom Ralph Lauren grey flannel trousers, leather wingtips and silk repp ties. 
The restaurant pays homage to the distinguished sporting lifestyle long synonymous with the Ralph Lauren brand.

Glam dining much? We think so.

Maison Martin Margiela has quietly dropped its middle name

Although John Galliano's debut collection for Maison Martin Margiela didn't exactly fly under the radar. Everybody on social media went berserk. We secretly hope it will be his design world second chance of his lil anti-semitic mishap in 2011. 
In all that buzz, there is one little thing it seems we all missed, that was picked up by Vanessa Friedman (NYT Fashion Director), that the fashion house quietly changed its name. It has dropped the Martin, ringing in Galliano's tenure with the simpler "Maison Margiela." 
A rep for the brand confirmed the name change but declined to comment on it. The house didn't make a big deal out of the alteration on Monday, either, but there it is on its show programs and press release, and in its hashtags and Instagram handle. 
So, the show producers of "Fashion Police" got the next meanest person on the list. 
Kathy Griffin. 
I guess it works well if the meanie has laughed at herself for so long..a great chance to take jabs at all the A-listers she has secretly resented while she was waiting in line on the D-list.
And as Kathy Griffin made her debut on "Fashion Police" Monday night, she wasted no time but got got straight to meanie payback. Joan Rivers would be proud. At the beginning of the show, the comedian gave a shout-out to her dear friend, promising that she was not afraid to "bring the hammer down on anyone." . Griffin even dared to strike her hammer down on newlywed Amal Clooney, crowning her worst-dressed at the Golden Globes (which i  must agree with...that outfit was not the best option for Mrs G.C).

Marc By Marc Jacobs Reveals its second social media-cast as campaign via instagram

Well, MbyMJ is certainly giving much attention to the gram! Their latest Instagram move MBMJ had such a positive, overwhelming response from its first #castmemarc contest (over 70,000 submissions, to be exact) that the label brought it back for a second season — and just revealed the lucky chosen few.
Through an open submission process using the dedicated hashtag, MBMJ designers Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley — along with one of the industry's coolest casting directors, Anita Bitton — chose 11 new faces from around the world for their spring 2015 ad campaign. Shot by David Sims and styled by Katie Grand, the diverse model lineup (and funky beauty looks, especially the rainbow hair) really does the '90s rave-inspired collection justice. Click through the gallery below to see the winners in all of their glory in the new campaign.
