QFW 4 - Fashion Finale

This is the last post for QFW and it has been a great series of fashion quizzing. It made me realise there is quizzing in every category possible. Scoreboard looks all tied up at the moment. [If there are any scoring errors, please comment and tell us]. So, this post should serve as a cool tiebreaker with 100 points. No wonder than that some connects might seem a bit cryptic or on multiple levels too. We saw some new people giving answers on our questions and that's what this series was meant for. Great going. Now, to see who comes out on top, answer these:


1.  Connect. [30 points] Full description shall be most appreciated. :)






















2.  This dress needs the model to strip down to bare naked and was made famous by the supermodel Giselle Bundchen. To create the dress, the company used simulation and rendering softwares like Maya. Name the dress. [10 points]


3.  Two fashion houses lost similar battles against these 2 companies [logos given]. Id the two fashion houses and the reason. [10 points]

 


4.  Connect to a brand. [30 points]




5. Connect to a celebrity. [20 points]






After the 4 posts of QBIT Fashion Week, as per the points tally, gold goes to abhishek, silver to vendetta and bronze to DJ! Woohoo! And as always, well done to whoever answered!
For this post particularly, the answers I was looking for were:
1. Adidas:
Adidas bought Reebok, who's original logo was the Union Jack along with the text Reebok. The characteristic 3-stripes logo of Adidas was bought from a little known Finnish company called Karhu (which means bear in Finnish) for I think 1600 dollars and 2 bottles of whiskey. Adidas has a close relationship with the band Run DMC and it also produces a Starship Trooper among other versions of Star Wars special merchandise.

2. Water Dress

3. Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana for the domain names lv.com and dg.com

4. Brook Brothers. Quoting Aprajita here, "The Brooks brother Luxottica owns this brand. Barack Obama wore their brand's clothes on the inauguration day. In the movie up in the air George Clooney wore suits of this brand. And for the oscars the brooks brothers clothed the young stars of the movie slumdog millionaire."


5. Jennifer Aniston:
She has been the brand embassador of Loreal Elvive and started off with a permanent character in the TV Show Molly. Her haircut in early seasons of Friends got famous as the Rachel Haircut (Here shown Geri Willis sporting the look). Her fragrance is called Lolavie and she dated John Mayer.

Q3. reason revisited
Dolce & Gabbana made the "DG" logo become an iconic symbol, but they were never able to get the matching internet address DG.com. In fact, DG.com is one of the oldest Internet domains and was already registered in 1986 by the computer company Data General, now defunct. As if it was a parody DG.com was purchased in June 2010 by the US Variety Store chain Dollar General which uses a different DG logo to sell products.
