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.
A cool day-to-night look on David Thielebeule, who’s just as comfortable hopping from city to city for fashion weeks as he is chilling out in the country. As I know, because after seeing him in New York, Milan and Paris, I ran into him in a Westchester apple orchard! Great minds think alike? He’s always well dressed, no matter what the occasion. I like that this look is just the tiniest bit disco and therefore very on trend.
One of my favorite new models on the scene: Gisele Fox of Seattle, who closed the Prada show this season. Not only is she genuinely nice, she has a unique gamine look and great personal style.
What goes with leopard? How about more leopard? Caroline Vreeland wore a leopard-print coat with leopard-print over-the-knee boots at the Cushnie et Ochs show. Over-the-knee boots were wildly popular this season among the fashion week crowd.
The trend of mixing prints is not going anywhere anytime soon, especially in menswear. Alex Badia mixed stripes with stripes with plaid at the Michael Kors show.
Love the always-colorful looks on Sita Abellan at the shows. At the J.W. Anderson show, she mixed a shearling jacket with a bright red print dress – and of course, her signature colorful hair.
We saw so many of these big ruffles at fashion month. Wear them with polished accessories, as stylist Laura Fantacci did at London fashion week, and you’ll get a look that’s just the right mix of bohemian and chic.
