Natasha Goldenberg wore shades of winter white to the Diane von Furstenberg show in New York. Details of her shoes and shearling coat, after the jump. (more…)
Cheerful pastels like the ones fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni of the Blonde Salad wore to the Derek Lam show are a great way to get into the spring spirit. The pants and sweater are MSGM, the necklace is Dolores Petunia. Pink Valentino bag.
Crappy weather – we get a lot of it in New York. And every time it sleets sideways I can’t help but think of other times we’ve encountered similarly crappy weather, as at the Jason Wu show during NY Fashion Week. One guest managed it with style by mixing a navy coat with black leather pants, silver high tops and a baseball cap. The orange vest underneath her coat is a nice pop of color – and great for added warmth.
Never underestimate the sartorial power of all black from head to toe. There was a lot of it on the runways for fall/winter 2013 and outside the shows, as seen on this guest at Balmain. The black leather pants are Balmain.
Loved this cool Club Kids sweater on Elisa Nalin at the Louis Vuitton show. This was also on the morning after a lot of big fashion week parties when many were hiding behind sunglasses… very apropos!
One of the most beautiful new faces in the modeling world is Russian model Nastya Kusakina, who has the look of a fairy princess in hair and makeup from the Dior runway. Even for us mere mortals, the combination of fuchsia lipstick and silvery shadow would be a fun beauty look for spring soirees.
Saudi Princess Deena Abdulaziz, who is also the owner of influential Riyadh boutique D’NA, is one of the most elegantly dressed women on the fashion scene today. She was recently profiled on Vogue.com on her way to fashion week.
Anyone who’s been to a major fashion show recently – or anyone who’s read Suzy Menkes’ essay The Circus of Fashion or Tuesday’s article from NY Mag’s the Cut, How Street Style Became a Hate-Watching Sport – has taken notice of the entirely new phenomenon of street style. Whereas once we lived in a peaceful universe where only a few qualified individuals wore subtly expensive designer clothing, now there are certain people who just love to call attention to themselves outside of the shows by wearing outlandish outfits. The commotion they cause makes it all but impossible for the rest of us to go about our important business.
Take the Tuileries in Paris, the site of many major fashion shows. It is so clogged with looky-loos in some new get-up or another, you’d think these gardens were created for the sole purpose of parading about in one’s finest new clothing. (more…)
Beautiful spring colors – cream and pistachio green – on Turkish Vogue’s Ece Sukan at the Ralph Lauren show.
I love seeing these French cousins at fashion week – they are even more stunning and chic as a unit.
A guest at the Marni show wore Fendi from head to toe one rainy Sunday in Milan. The studded, architectural open toe Fendi SS2013 sandals have been a big hit this season, seen on several pairs of fashionable feet outside the shows. Close up of those shoes, after the jump. (more…)
Style.com’s Marina Larroude wore a bright flared skater skirt and black leather biker jacket to the Max Mara show in Milan, a chic look for rainy transitional weather. Her fantastic buckle detail boots are Christian Louboutin. Close up of those, after the jump.
Photographer and stylist Zhanna Romashka wore her favorite color combination of red and blue to the Kenzo show, a particularly apt color mix in Paris. Her head wreath of silk roses echoed the floral head wreaths we saw a lot of last summer on girls at music festivals like Bonnaroo – in case you’re looking for some festival dressing ideas.
