And it strikes me as something-not discussed by this show, but absolutely visible-that there were centuries upon centuries, from the middle ages through the 18th century, when European menswear fashion for men in power just kept pointing at the penis. I didn't want to feel placed in an outfit-I wanted to feel an elevated elegance, and like it's second skin. The first fitting was emotional. Fabulous wonders abound, echoed in sumptuous contemporaneous portraits. Pieces from just-shown collections by Christopher John Rogers and Ashlyn and the LaQuan Smith dress worn on the runway by Julia Fox are included in the rethink of Lexicon.

Hollywood's brightest stars are expected to hit a physical red carpet in their most dramatic looks, since stylists often keep their best gowns and suits for last.

Whose bodies, whose sexualities are self-actualized and centered in the mainstream beauty-contest that we call fashion, Gucci has sponsored this show, and its thrust.

It's easy for them to imagine DeBose taking home the Best Supporting Actress statuette on film's big night because they believe in their client. Fashion is a full spectrum industry running across the globe, touching billions of lives.

Tentpole shows still anchor the inaugural schedule.
