One from the archives: Taylor Tomasi Hill dared to bare her ankles last February at the Theyskens’ Theory show. That’s what warm winter days are for!
Photographer Candice Lake lightened up a winter look with a shearling coat in pale green and cream. The bright floppy hat is the perfect topper.
I’ve been seeing a lot of cute beanie pom pom hats on the street whenever the temperature drops below zero. They’re particularly cute with a varsity jacket.
MyTheresa‘s Justin O’Shea is always incredibly stylish, but this was one of my favorite outfits of his during all of fashion month. The kickass gun print shirt is Prada. He was one of several men to go high-low this past season by mixing vests or three-piece suits with casual, colorful print shirts.
Speaking of Cosmopolitan, here’s Cosmopolitan editor Joanna Coles in a cool black and white Stella McCartney sheath outside the Ralph Lauren show.
One good thing about January: I have three pages of street style photos in the first Cosmopolitan magazine edited by Joanna Coles. The mag has a whole new look but sticks to Cosmo’s core message – fun, fearless females and, of course, sex. Lots of it.
So if you need an excuse to buy the January issue of Cosmopolitan – the one entitled “Epic Sex!” – or the February issue – “Crazy Hot Sex” – you’ll find my photos illustrating articles about girls on the street, musing about current events in “What’s On Your Mind” and sharing their beauty secrets in “Keeping It Real.” Fun!
And in the world of well-dressed men, what would we do without Vogue’s Hamish Bowles? At NYC’s Lincoln Center, his blue suit echoed the cobalt blue seen in collections like Stella McCartney’s for Fall 2012.
Simone Marchetti, fashion editor of La Repubblica, is one of the best dressed men at fashion week and one we look forward to seeing every season. At the Kenzo show in Paris, he paired a Valentino camouflage jacket with white chinos and studded loafers which – ahem – are also available for women.
Today marks the start of Pitti Uomo, a huge menswear trade and fashion show in Florence, and while alas I will not be there, this will be the week of men’s fashion. The men of fashion week are always so dapperly attired that when D. asks me what to wear to a fashion week party to “blend in,” I am at a total loss. This sort of attention to detail is not something that can be taken on lightly. Witness these two gentlemen outside the Dior show, the pants, jackets, shirts and scarves so beautifully coordinated, the shoes buffed to a high gloss, their retro shades a nod back to the ’20s. And at fashion week, this is “typical.”
When Kate Lanphear left Elle this December, it seemed like we’d lose out on a whole season of her great style during fashion week. But no! She has landed at T Magazine as Style Director and will be back on the scene this February. We’re looking forward to seeing more of her super cool looks like this one, a textured black leather jacket and her signature black shades outside the shows at Milan fashion week.
Nothing brightens up a sea of blah black coats in January like a pop of neon color. This guest at the Victoria Beckham show accented her thick black coat with a sunny yellow hoodie and mirrored sunglasses, bringing a little Cali surf style to bear on a NY winter day.
One thing I have personally been obsessed with this past fall is sheer black stockings. Formerly relegated to the back of the drawer in favor of opaque tights, they’ve made a huge comeback. Always ahead of the curve, Caroline Seiber paired a gorgeous gray dress (gray – also very au courant) with sexy sheer black stockings at last February’s Theyskens’ Theory show.
On another brutally cold day last February, this guest at the Victoria Beckham show brought out the big guns: a black leather shearling coat, incredibly warm no matter what the weather.
