One of the best things about getting dressed in warm weather: it can be as simple as just putting on a pretty dress. Work it for as long as you can, since fall is coming soon. Eleonora Carisi of Jou Jou Villeroy wore a pink snakeskin print Just Cavalli dress to the show in Milan.
Another over-the-knee look, this time with knee socks on model Molly Bair right after the Prada show in Milan. Needless to say, it helps if you have legs up to here.
Swiss blogger Kristina Bazan of Kayture has really exploded on the fashion scene in a short amount of time. This was one of my favorite outfits she wore during Milan fashion week – a blue and black Tod’s cape, which she belted and paired with over-the-knee Jimmy Choo boots and a Rag & Bone hat. (Hey! I have that hat.)
Ever since the Moschino show this week there’s been a Moschino invasion in Milan, with the Barbie-pink clothes and accessories showing up on all sorts of trendsetters. Julia Sarr Jamois was one, sporting a Moschino sweatshirt from their new collection emblazoned with 70s roller disco lettering. Also note her jeans: wide legged and a pale shade of denim.
Top model Aymeline Valade said to her friend when she was leaving Fendi: I always have a bike. It’s the easiest way to get around.
Fashion Week has become a sneak preview of a different sort: some of the top bloggers attend the shows wearing looks from collections that haven’t even been released to the public yet. At the Emporio Armani show, Chiara Ferragni wore head-to-toe Fendi resort – a colorful collection that’s distinctive for its polka dots.
At the Ralph Lauren show in New York, Shiona Turini used her street style clout to make a political point with her “they have names” tee – so names like Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin stay on people’s minds even when we are living in the bubble that is fashion week. Not only that, it actually looked chic.
Model Katlin Aas wore a polished and chic version of the rocker chick look after walking the Michael Kors show. Long layers on top are key for fall, as are low heeled boots like these.
W Magazine’s Karla Martinez always looks fantastic, but particularly on the last day of New York fashion week, when the rest of us looked a lot less refreshed. She sported a Proenza Schouler red tweed shorts suit to the Ralph Lauren show – a great example of how to mix flats with business attire.
More black and white! Obviously something is in the air. Model Saskia de Brauw wore a black cotton suit with white trim after the Marc Jacobs show. Love the sheer panel and also her mussed hair.
