Natalie Joos at Rochas FW2014

Natalie Joos at Rochas FW2014A great play on texture and stripes by Natalie Joos at last winter’s Rochas show. Wrapping oneself in oversize knits is a concept that really appeals to me right now.

Elina Halimi at Tommy Hilfiger

Loved this classic American sportswear look on Elina Halimi outside the Tommy Hilfiger show in NYC. There’s a twist though: that fairisle sweater by Saint Laurent is embellished with pale sequins. Celine bag.

Bundled Up: Irene Kim at Tory Burch FW2014

Irene Kim at Tory Burch

I still remember this bitterly cold morning last February. Model Irene Kim handled it with style, wearing a black leather jacket like a cardigan under an oversized fur coat. The white dress underneath is a nice sign of spring.

Caroline Issa at Philosophy FW2014

Caroline Issa at PhilosophyThis outfit, like Caroline Issa herself, manages to be both cute and sophisticated at once. Love the black and white contrast and stylistic contrast between the cuddly hat and sleek black culottes and boots.

Winter White: Eva Chen at Derek Lam SS2015

Eva Chen at Derek Lam

New York women are not afraid to pile on the layers when the mercury drops. Case in point: Eva Chen during last year’s freezing cold fashion week, bundled up in winter white and silver sneakers, still looking chic.

Model Off Duty: Grace Mahary at Rick Owens SS2015

Grace Mahary at Rick Owens SS2015We had a surprise sighting of model Grace Mahary outside the Rick Owens show, which she attended as a guest of the designer. Take a cue from her and go for leather pants in this cold weather. If there was ever a time for them, it’s now!

Natalya Bogacheva at Rick Owens SS2015

Natalya Bogacheva at Rick Owens SS2015

Moi, je ne suis pas Charlie.

I am not nearly as daring or provocative as the cartoonists and editors behind Charlie Hebdo. But like many I am drawn to the provocateurs. Artists and free thinkers are indelibly associated with the city of Paris and should be always. In the world of fashion they would be the punks or those who dare to wear the crazy things no one else would. At the Rick Owens show, Natalya Bogacheva was one of them, donning Thom Browne’s rabbit ears hat and mask to twirl in front of the Eiffel Tower. Vive la Paris.

W Mag’s Karla Martinez looked impeccably stylish in a great Celine scarf outside the Comme des Garçons show in Paris. I love how she layered different colors and textures to make a unified whole.

Gray Coat and Beige Hat, Madison Avenue

Gray Coat and Beige Hat, Madison Avenue

A cute look spotted yesterday on Madison Avenue and a great example of how to wear sunglasses with a winter hat. Another thing to note: fashion people are not letting go of cropped pants and bare ankles, no matter how cold it gets!

Carine Roitfeld at Comme des Garcons SS2015

Carine Roitfeld at Comme des Garcons SS2015

No matter what age we are, we can all take fashion inspiration from Carine Roitfeld. She manages to stay both on trend yet true to her personal style year after year. Before pencil skirts started popping up on runways everywhere, she was wearing them, bringing a classic trend into the new millenium.

Leave it to Rumi Neely to look sexy even in the dead of winter. Outside the Prabal Gurung show, she cut a stylish silhouette with a fluffy gray fur coat on top and black leather miniskirt on the bottom.
