Sofia Sanchez de Betak has always rocked a little bit of a hippie ’70s vibe, even before the rest of fashion caught up with her. At the Bouchra Jarrar show last week in Paris, she wore a striped tie-neck blouse layered under a sweater.
Fancy indeed! Rapper Iggy Azalea appeared at the Viktor & Rolf show at Paris couture week in a blue fur-trimmed coat and sheer top. She went to several shows during couture week and is apparently a big fan of fashion. Designers, take note!
Cold weather is a great excuse to play with textures, like this guest at the BCBG show last winter who mixed a cozy shearling jacket with a chunky knit hat with fluffy fur pom pom.
I always look back to the winter shows in NYC some fashion inspiration at this time of year. Despite the chilly temps, Nausheen Shah looked perfectly turned out at the Creatures of the Wind show in an oversize coat, cowl neck sweater, wide brim hat and cuffed jeans.
Another jet-setter who’s here right now for Art Basel Miami: Hannah Bronfman, seen outside the Fendi show this fall. And this pink dress would actually be perfect resort wear.
Winter denial: going to Miami for Art Basel Miami and dreaming of spring already. Just looking at this colorful outfit on Patricia Manfield at the Fendi show makes me hope winter will be over in the blink of an eye. In the meantime, it would be an excellent option for resort wear.
Loved the clean sculptural lines and fall colors of this Salvatore Ferragamo dress on Giovanna Battaglia, spotted outside the Carven show in Paris. Another styling tip to note: turtlenecks are still going strong for winter 2015/2016.
Jada Pinkett Smith wore a colorful yellow trench to the Chloe show, draping it over a white blouse with a long silk tie and slouchy black trousers that are all the rage now in Paris. My one critique of this outfit: too many accessories – the multiple bodyguards! Even Karlie Kloss evades her stalkers with just one, and there is a particular Chinese billionaire who often attends the shows with no security in sight. They are surely there somewhere, but much more subtle.
New blogger Samantha Angelo of The Eye Travels turned heads this fashion week season with her statuesque beauty and flair for mixing different pieces. Outside the Chloe show in Paris, she belted a long Dries Van Noten coat, part trench and part duster, over an Acne dress with a pointed collar and Mary Jane-style Charlotte Olympia shoes. The military subtext to the outfit may especially work for another reason: she actually served in the Marines as a clarinetist in the United States Marine Band! Certainly a multi-talented player on the fashion scene.
Thinking of our beautiful friend Ece Sukan of Turkish Vogue today, pictured here in a vintage jacket at the Emanuel Ungaro show a week ago in Paris, and wishing for peace for Turkey.
Staying neutral: a great mix of blacks and tans on Pernille Teisbaek, including the new Chanel slingbacks in nude and black.
Simone Marchetti wore the new Gucci collection, including the fur-lined loafers that have been so popular this season, to the Emanuel Ungaro show in Paris.
