This is not just great maternity dressing but great fashion. At the Derek Lam show yesterday, Natasha Goldenberg accentuated her shape with a wild rooster print silk dress by Rochas.
Phillip Bloch looked particularly dapper at the Lacoste show yesterday in a blue sport coat and tie, blue cap and navy pants. Also note the shoes: this is how men are wearing sneakers now – very convenient for zipping around during fashion week.
Eva Chen has a new look for fall: a baby bump! Here she is in a plaid Marc Jacobs dress, personalized Edie Parker clutch and Balenciaga boots outside the Lacoste show. Close up of the bag – and bump – after the jump. (more…)
It was such a pleasure to see these two lovely ladies Caroline Issa and Yasmin Sewell at the Ostwald Hegalson show yesterday. Both wore black and white maxi dresses (Yasmin’s by Josh Goot) and both are designing their own clothing lines now. Caroline Issa’s for Nordstrom comes out in spring 2015, and Yasmin Sewell’s collection for Barneys is in stores now.
Susie Bubble arrived at the Jason Wu show in a particularly brilliant combination of a print Marc Jacobs top, vest and skirt, Prada orange straw fringe bag and blue Louis Vuitton platform heels. Add some green framed sunglasses to top it off. Close up of that Prada bag after the jump. (more…)
Leandra Medine wore a great white shirt by Rosie Assoulin with jean shorts and sneakers to the Creatures of the Wind show in New York. Also love the sculptural wood clutch.
Blogger Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What mixed a leather fringe skirt with flats and a tee at the BCBG show yesterday. The pretty almond color of her skirt also figures prominently in a lot of the spring collections.
Yesterday was the first day of school… and the first day of New York fashion week! I loved this look outside the BCBG show at Lincoln Center – it’s both classically ladylike and very modern.
Here’s another beautiful and dramatic look seen outside the couture shows: at Zuhair Murad, an orange silk print maxi skirt worn with a black top.
This black pant suit with a dramatic, oversize black ruffle was one of the more stunning looks during haute couture week in Paris.
Loved this sculptural Delpozo dress on Leaf Greener at the Ulyana Sergeenko couture show in Paris. Look for more architectural fashion that really makes a statement this fall. Detail shot of her lips earrings, after the jump. Her tiny bag is actually just an iPhone cover with a chain handle. (more…)
Veronika Heilbrunner of German Harper’s Bazaar really knows how to work the athletic look. During couture week in Paris, she mixed a sexy black tank top with a ribbed orange skirt and cork Nike hightops. Detail shot of those sneakers, after the jump. (more…)
I was initially against the idea of the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” seeing it as a kind of slacktivism. But apparently many of those who take the challenge, in which you have to throw a bucket of ice water over your head or give $100 to benefit A.L.S. research, end up donating either way. Over $13M has been donated to ALS research since this fad started. Never one to ignore a trend, Anna Wintour has just taken the challenge and captured it on video. See the video here – or see her in her normal dignified work state, as at the Paris couture shows, above.
