Lily Donaldson at Fendi Couture. Peace out and happy weekend!
Elena Perminova – and a view of the trenches at Paris couture week this summer.
Kind of obsessed with this retro look on Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea at the Elie Saab couture show this summer. The glasses! Also, after a few seasons of not seeing jeans because of overall skinny jean fatigue, denim may be back in a big way on the streets this fall, in a variety of cuts and washes. It’s that ’70s thing, as spurred on by the new Gucci collection.
An elegant long white silk skirt dialed down somewhat by a quilted cropped top in T-shirt form.
Though fall has its pleasures, it’s always a struggle to let go of summer, even when dressing for New York Fashion Week in September. But you don’t have to pack away all your summer favorites just yet. Alexis Bryan Morgan, now of Rent the Runway, paired a lightweight crimson dress with tassels and embroidery with heels and a structured olive green bag for an outfit that added a businesslike edge to a summertime staple.
Two great transitional outfits on models Ola Rudnicka and Maja Salamon that kept the fun spirit of summer going but introduced a bit of fall seriousness with polished accessories.
Summer is a great time to show off sculptural, minimalist fashion like this quilted print dress, her own design, on Vika Gazinskaya. The slicked-back hair continues on the minimalist vein.
Blogger Cecilie Lindegaard wore a great geometric print vintage dress to the Chanel couture show, layering it with a paneled white top that showcased the 70s collar.
I chanced upon blogger Jenny Bernheim of Margo & Me in this cool setting at a private party at Coachella. Gladiator sandals and a Chloe bag are a great way to accessorize a simple belted dress.
This drab green color made a big impact in menswear this summer, and we can expect to see more of it on the streets come September. It telegraphs “back to work” – but when mixed with an unexpected baby blue crop top on Hanneli Mustaparta, it’s not all work and no play.
One good thing about super hot weather: nothing comes between you and your accessories. Helena Bordon wore a Snob Essentials crossbody bag over striped shorts and a striped crop top at the Prabal Gurung show.
J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons mixed a white tee with a cream colored blazer, cream colored jeans and gold jewelry for a relaxed but sophisticated look on a hot day at Prabal Gurung’s show.
Annie Georgia Greenberg kept cool on a super hot day last September in a flowing silk plaid dress that caught the breeze outside the Prabal Gurung show.
If I remember this moment correctly, a beautiful, well-dressed woman walked into the Prabal Gurung show, a couple of us snapped her photo, but no one even asked her to stop – no one recognized Lily Aldridge, including me, until now. The Prabal Gurung show last fall was the first fashion show she ever attended as a guest. So here’s one from the archives: Lily Aldridge in a great Prabal Gurung print shift dress, outside the show last September.
TGIF! Models Nastya Kusakina, Stasha Yatchuk and Irina Shnitman jumped for joy outside the Ulyana Sergeenko show in Paris – even though for them, it was the beginning of the work week.
