Clemson Basketball on Verge of Wasting Impressive Start to Season

Sometimes, it’s not that you lose. It’s how you lose.

Clemson men’s basketball is doing both in an alarming fashion and it’s raised many questions after an incredibly promising start. Last Saturday’s 35-point loss to No. 13 Virginia was supposed to be because of an 11-day layoff due to COVID-19 protocols within the Tiger program. 

After two games were postponed and momentum from a four-game winning streak was halted, Clemson has yet to look anything like the team that started the season 9-1 with seven wins over Power 5 teams. 

The latest game, an 83-65 loss to Georgia Tech on Wednesday, is actually a bigger head-scratcher than when the Cavs played their best game of the year. After all, UVA was ranked and still undefeated in ACC play. 

The Yellow Jackets, meanwhile, had not played a game in 17 days because of COVID-19 protocols. They had only competed once

RuPaul’s Drag Race best outfits

Drag and fashion have always had a symbiotic relationship, from vogueing — the dance that mimics the editorial poses of models — to the 2019 Met Gala’s Camp: Notes on Fashion theme. Drag artists parody the images they see on runways, red carpets and the pages of magazines, and, in turn, designers like Gaultier and Jeremy Scott have been inspired by drag’s theatricality and gender-usurping.

Since the dawn of RuPaul’s Drag Race 12 years ago, the lines between the art form depicted in the Emmy award-winning show and the fashion industry have continued to blur. Season after season, episode challenges saw the queen hopefuls creating upcycled looks, making over a Coach bag and even re-creating Alexander McQueen’s breathtaking SS99 spray painting robots. And post-show the same queens went on to walk for Savage X Fenty and Moschino, star in Prada campaigns and curate collections for Opening Ceremony

Men’s fashion was at the forefront of Sunday’s awards ceremony, especially among nominated actors Dan Levy and Leslie Odom Jr., who wore looks from Valentino’s recent spring 2021 couture collection. The collection was the first from the design house to offer men’s couture styles.

New York Fashion Week Already Has Breakout Stars. Will You Wear Them?

Kimberly Goldson

Kimberly Goldson began designing her new collection right after she learned that Saks had picked up her eponymous clothing line. After nearly a decade in business, her dream had come true. So, as she told The Daily Beast last week, her fall collection “reflects where [the brand] has been—hidden in plain sight, but people are finally getting to know who we are. We feel seen, but we’re still moving incognito.”

That, along with the calls to “support Black designers” in the wake of the death of George Floyd last summer inspired Goldson to create her “Stealth Print.” She hid her gilded “KG” logo into bold, geometric prints to symbolize how the brand had “hid in plain sight” before activists found them. It’s not logomania, exactly—you won’t notice the letters unless you look very, very closely. Ultimately, the expertly-tailored pieces stand on their own. It’s a great
