Barrino’s custom gown featured a strapless black velvet corset top with matching opera gloves. The midsection featured a white bedazzled segment through the hips, and then the gown flared out into a light purple, tulle skirt. The “American Idol” winner adorned herself with Ring Concierge jewelry, including several rings and dangling diamond earrings that stood out with her pixie cut.

On the red carpet, Barrino spoke with WWD. Chatting with host Jeannie Mai and Booth Moore, WWD’s West Coast executive editor, Barrino explained her relationship with fashion. “I feel like fashion is almost like singing to me and doing movies. You submit yourself over to the artist to wear it and express yourself. And that depends on how you feel on that day. So for me, I like to embody a lot of things. I’m a little girl from the country, that they never thought would be here. So I can put on a little bit of anything and embody it.”

On the red carpet, Yeoh spoke with WWD about following her gut when it comes to fashion. “I’ve learned that when you put it on, if it’s right, you will know it’s right,” she explained.

Yeoh also discussed her personal connection to dressing. “[Fashion is a] part of you. It’s an extension of how you feel, what you want to say,” she added. “I think it’s also a respect to my fans, to my audience, because they want that — this is a glamorous side of it and why not have fun with it?”

Yeoh has been an ambassador for Balenciaga since 2023 and has starred in the brand’s campaigns. Previously, Yeoh also starred in campaigns for Guerlain and La Mer.

David Dartnell, the designer who created the David Dart label and turned it into a multimillion-dollar business in the ’90s, died at the age of 61.

Dartnell died at Touro Hospital in New Orleans, the city that he lived in, on Nov. 13. The cause of death was a recent myocardial infarct and hypertensive cardiovascular disease, according to a spokesperson for the New Orleans medical examiner’s office. The manner of his death was deemed an accident.

A memorial is being planned for a later date, Dartnell’s friend Lucy Keeler said.

A winner of The California Designer of the Year Award and the Dallas Fashion Award for contemporary sportswear, David Dart also had a signature sport group and a knitwear label in the ’90s. In addition to corporate sale showrooms in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Atlanta, there were David Dart Emporium stores in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. Giving customers their “complete clothing needs” was his modus operandi in the mid-’90s.

Known for his relaxed silhouettes in bold colors and vibrant prints, the West Coast-based designer created a collection that appealed to working and nonworking women who favored affordable styles that weren’t overly complicated. The self-taught Dartnell had started designing on his own in 1985 and established his business, Force One, in 1987. By 1994, he had built what was said to be a $70 million company, which he sold to the Kellwood Co.

Jacqueline Rumohr, who worked with Dartnell from 1993 until 2001, credited Dartnell with creating a signature look that relayed this “very casual easy elegance.” Looking at mood boards with Tencel-based designs for a new sport line in his showroom in the early ’90s, she said she thought, “Oh my God, what do I have to do to work with this man?”

TAUNTON – It’s been eight years since local artist John Barradas died at the age of 99.

The Taunton-bred sign shop owner is remembered, in part, for having designed the Taunton Green Christmas display a total of five times from the late 1940s to the late 1980s.

But it was a Weir Village wall mural he painted in 1999 – when Barradas was still a sprightly 82 – on the side of a commercial building at 13 West Water St. that to many Tauntonians became his signature piece.

The “Weir History Comes Alive” mural was intended to depict, in a fanciful and animated fashion, the look of the neighborhood’s commercial and industrial district at the turn of the 20th century.

But time, the elements and a graffiti incident in 2010 involving red spray paint all took its toll on the 30-foot-long public art display.

Phill Bourque has returned to Taunton from his home in Hollywood, CA to re-paint a vintage mural on the side of Pistol Pete's Barber Shop at the Weir Village in Taunton.

Phill Bourque has returned to Taunton from his home in Hollywood, CA to re-paint a vintage mural on the side of Pistol Pete’s Barber Shop at the Weir Village in Taunton.

Enter Phill Bourque. The Los Angeles-based, full-time working artist, who grew up in Taunton, for the past two-plus weeks has been painting a new mural based on Barradas’s original mural sketch.

“It’s pretty ambitious, but I feel pretty good about it now,” Bourque, 32, said.

Bourque says he makes a living working mainly in what’s come to be known as the “horror” genre of art – a contemporary and flamboyant style that incorporates garish, comic book imagery that’s often morbid, surreal or unsettling depending on one’s taste.

“Eighty percent of my work is in the horror community. It’s blowing up (and) it’s keeping money in my pockets,” he said.

Bourque says he travels across the country painting an average of two horror-art jobs per

When former President Donald Trump’s eyes drifted shut as his former accountant testified during his civil fraud trial in New York State Supreme Court this fall, no photographers captured the moment: Cameras were banned during the trial.

But several courtroom artists — an anachronistic group that continues to use chalky pastels to draw scenes from camera-free courtrooms to sell to TV stations and newspapers — were on it, erasing Trump’s pupils from their sketches.

“He’s nodding off!” artist Isabelle Brourman whispered to a colleague.

Brourman, a 30-year-old newcomer, was not part of the dwindling coterie of commercial courtroom artists who make their livings selling cinematic, sometimes vaguely expressionistic trial drawings to news outlets. She is there for a different kind of art project: A mixed media artist, she has found herself drawn to big trials, sketching the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial in Virginia last year and showing the resulting works in a Los Angeles gallery, and now trying to capture the frenetic energy and political theater of the remarkable fraud trial of a former U.S. president.

“I wanted to bring something unregulated into such a regulated space,” Brourman said recently in the marble halls of the courthouse.

Her bleeding watercolors and rough linework are surrounded by snippets of legal arguments written into the margins around her subjects. The resulting images are breathtaking in scale and microscopic in detail. They are also highly opinionated.

As are her subjects.

Each day before the judge in the Trump case, Arthur F. Engoron, arrives, the sketch artists are besieged by powerful men. Lawyers have pleaded for slimmer bodies, witnesses have asked for more hair to obscure bald spots, and even the former president has occasionally seemed to strike a pose from across the defendant’s table.

Brourman often stands out in the usually staid court,
