Congrats to Marina Larroude, who just got tapped as the fashion director of Teen Vogue. The Brazilian-born beauty wore a high-waisted swingy polka dot skirt to the Ralph Lauren resort show last week, paired with some eye-catching leopard-print platform sandals.
Well, this was definitely my favorite shot of the day. Ralph Lauren exited his 2015 resort show impeccably dressed in his own label. It’s hard to deny his star power. Even Condé Nast editors are starstruck by him, especially when his son David charmingly introduces him by saying, “Meet my dad.”
The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) may be best known for crowning established, successful American designers as at last night’s CFDA Awards, but they also help out a select few emerging designers along the way. A recent CFDA Fashion Incubator showcase spotlighted up-and-coming talents who should be on your radar.

So what is it like to dine at the best new restaurant in the country? Thanks to our New Orleans in-laws, we paid a visit to Pêche in New Orleans just before it won the James Beard Award. Book your dinner reservation around the same time you book your plane tickets to New Orleans, and you too should have no problem getting into this friendly, democratic but still fabulous institution.

May and June are a great time to have fun with party dresses in colorful prints, like this cheetah print dress seen at the Dior Resort show in Brooklyn.
I have been struggling with what to do about crop tops. Memories of Jennifer Aniston in red carpet appearances past have clouded my judgment somewhat, because this generation of crop tops is not the navel gazing version that plagued us in the early 2000s. Instead the new crop tops are often paired with high waisted pants and skirts, revealing just the tiniest bit of sexy skin, as Lucky editor Eva Chen did so effortlessly at the Dior Cruise show. I also love her work clutch, the sort of bag you see so often on fashion editors now.
Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea wore a cool colorblock dress to the Dior Cruise 2015 show with a diagonal line of buttons that felt appropriately nautical for the occasion.
Olivia Palermo looked beautiful as usual at the Dior Cruise show on Wednesday. A Spanish style fringed bolero jacket is a great topper for evening over a sheer white top, but Olivia added a little edge to the outfit with a black leather skirt with a slit up one side.
The fashion world turned out for the Dior Cruise show yesterday in Brooklyn. Nina Garcia, fashion-forward as always, sported one of my favorite trends for 2014: cropped, wide legged pants. They looked great in floral quilting with heels and a black top.
A cool trench is a great way to brighten up a rainy day. Stylist Tina Leung of Tina Loves wore a colorful burgundy and blue wave print trench to the Balmain show in Paris.
More miniskirts: Candela Novembre paired hers with a chunky orange sweater and black and white heels at the Giorgio Armani show in Milan. The outfit is all Zara except for the bag, which is by Sara Battaglia.
