Paris Fashion Week
Say cheese: Bryanboy laughed with us photographers outside the Valentino show in Paris. Love this jacket, which would be great for beating the wind on a blustery day like today.
The clean lines of sleek cars were on display this past fashion month, both in the venues – like Ralph Lauren’s show in his souped-up garage in Bedford, NY – and in the clothes, as seen on Camila Coelho in crisp Louis Vuitton outside the Paris shows. Disclaimer: not her Porsche! (yet)
Today in models speaking out: Edie Campbell penned an open letter to WWD, questioning the fashion community’s response to sexual abuse in the industry. As the New York Times has also pointed out, is the problem really limited to just one photographer, Terry Richardson? Really? Campbell also brings up the issue of male models who have suffered abuse – something we hear much less about. Definitely worth a read – and worth considering if victims can start naming names, as has happened in almost every other creative industry now, without fear of getting blacklisted.
Here’s a throwback Thursday pic of Campbell in 2013 after she closed the Louis Vuitton show covered in Stephen Sprouse-style body paint. If I remember correctly, she actually flew back to London immediately after the show still covered in body paint.
Winning for the most fun shoes seen outside the shows in Paris.
Despite years of shooting model Teddy Quinlivan, I never realized she was transgender – until she came out as trans at the end of New York fashion week in support of other trans individuals. Brava! It goes to show you how ridiculous the U.S. laws against transgender people are: she belongs in a Victoria’s Secret show, not a men’s room. Here she is chic and beautiful in green lace after the Sacai show in Paris. Love the boots too.
Pinstripe pants made for a business chic look on Evangelie Smyrniotaki at the Valentino show.
A beautifully styled look on Tina Leung at Palais du Tokyo this month in Paris. Love how she belted the cloak and paired it with over-the-knee boots. Bring on the fall weather!
Gabriel Kane Day Lewis stood out from the crowd in a pale purple suit at the Haider Ackermann show in Paris.
Shiona Turini went for head-to-toe red in Paris, topping it with a Fendi fair isle sweater that’s been particularly popular this season.
Chriselle Lim, who turned down a $1M+ beauty deal to focus on her own independent branding business, seen here in navy at the Dior show.
So many things to love about this look on Denni Elias. Such a pretty shade of pink, in gorgeous velvet that also looks quite cozy and comfortable!
Binx Walton, still very cool and low key after all her success, including starring in this season’s Celine ads. Her “have a good time” sweatshirt was a welcome sight in the hectic scene outside the Dior show.
This was one of the only times Parisian drivers did not honk or yell when blocked by an impromptu street style photo shoot. All they could do was stare at glamazon Elena Perminova in sky high lace-up suede boots and a micro mini dress.
An example of how a long-sleeved, high-necked frock can still be quite sexy, as seen on Jasmine Sanders at the Dior show.
Trench coats are back in full force in a a variety of fabrics, especially plaids. This doesn’t mean you have to tone down what goes underneath, however: Elizabeth von Guttman wore hers with bright red track pants.
