The World of Prabal Gurung

Monday Muse - Diane Kruger

Monday Muse - Ashley Graham
We started Monday Muse in 2013 to celebrate the complex beauty and depth of a woman, and to highlight the diverse meanings one can bring to the word feminine. From day one, our brand has believed that having more women...
Monday Muse – Barbara Bush
It is with great pride that I call this week’s Monday Muse a dear friend and constant source of inspiration – Barbara Bush. I’ve known Barbara for many years and have long admired her commitment to human rights lobbying, gay rights activism,...
Monday Muse - Juliette Binoche
Last week, I left the screening of Olivier Assayas’ “Clouds of Sils Maria” in absolute awe. The depth of the story and the complexities of the characters, handled with intelligence and empathy, remain in my mind. I was so moved...

Monday Muse – Liya Kebede
Our Spring 2014 Campaign launched last month, featuring Liya Kebede PRABAL GURUNG is a brand just as much inspired by women of substance, grace and intangible beauty, as it is a brand established to inspire the same. As has often...
Monday Muse – Angelina Jolie
Last weekend Angelina Jolie won the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the fifth annual Governors Awards. As I reflected on the composure, elegance, dignity and compassion Jolie radiated standing on the podium, I began thinking about her life and career...

Monday Muse – Cate Blanchett
Last weekend, I went to see Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine featuring Cate Blanchett and I walked out instantly knowing who our next Monday Muse would be. Cate’s performance stayed with me for days. Haunting, compelling and raw, it was one...
Monday Muse: On Women, Power and Fashion
