Transitional weather calls for a transitional look: Paola Alberdi layered a navy and red coat over a polka dot jumpsuit at the Carolina Herrera show in New York.
Congrats to Kym Ellery of ELLERY, winner of the Australian Fashion Laureate award for best Australian womenswear. Aussie actress Sarah Ellen wore a beautiful white silk dress by the designer to the show in Paris this month. Ellery’s signature long flowing sleeves have been a particular favorite with the fashion set.
Another great look that also works for the office. Christine Centenera wore a blazer over a knit skirt and top to the Loewe show. It isn’t all business though: click through to see a sexy detail in the back of the jacket.

Yoyo Cao arrived at the Loewe show in a cadet cap and Prince of Wales plaid pants suit. Surprisingly popular among fashion week guests, pant suits have shed their dowdy image and now feature updated, flattering cuts and colors that would work both in and out of the office.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Young women who have the abs, like model Alanna Arrington, seen here after walking the Balmain show, are wearing crop tops and bandeau tops well into fall, often under a jacket.
Forest green and Prince of Wales plaid are classics for fall, but the style is new on Natasha Goldenberg at the Carven show in Paris. Look for more – much more! – of the broad shoulder cut of this jacket and midi length of the skirt – they were all over the runways for spring.
This trend’s got legs: pajama dressing has been around for a couple seasons now, but this fall the looks are more sophisticated, like this navy silk pajama set on Chiara Ferragni. We noticed many women dressing for evening shows and dinners in silk pajamas. The style has particular appeal because it’s so comfortable, which is the way women really want to dress now.
In case you missed it, here’s a slideshow of street style photos, many of them by me, in the New York Times! It’s a nice roundup of the best looks we saw in Europe, especially during Paris fashion week. There’s also a Milan slideshow:

So this happened: a massive slideshow of 82 of my street style photos in the New York Times Styles section online. Click through for all the best looks from NY Fashion Week!
It was an honor and a privilege to shoot for the New York Times, having been a Styles section reader for pretty much my entire life. Thanks to my editors at the NYT, my fellow photographers, and all the stylish people who were kind enough to pose for us, including Ansley Dawson, Emma Sousa and Farah Alimi, pictured here in a huge rainstorm after the Marchesa show. It was a very Bill Cunningham moment, and he is very much in the thoughts of the fashion week showgoers this month.
See you in London!
Natasha Zinko brought a pop of color to the Elie Saab couture show in Paris – and a ’70s look replete with purple glasses and blouse and yellow velvet pants. Expect more wild colors this fall as traditional autumn colors give way to the whole rainbow.
Whimsical, colorful prints are going to be big this fall season, and we got a sneak preview of just how beautiful they can be with Sofia Sanchez de Betak’s star-printed look at the Valentino couture show in Paris.
Robe dressing is the new pajama dressing? Gilda Ambrosio belted a silk robe with a fanny pack at the Armani Privé show in Paris.
Victoria’s Secret model Maria Borges exited the Armani Privé show in Paris in subtle but colorful runway makeup, shell choker, and the natural hairstyle that has become her trademark. Not only a strong beauty statement, but perfect for summer.
Beautiful blue, white and red on Chriselle Lim, who kept it casual but elegant at the Armani Privé show in Paris.
It’s hard to resist model Teddy Quinlivan, who exits every show in a quirky outfit in a style that’s entirely her own and puts on a huge magazine-shoot-esque performance for us photographers. This move was all Teddy. After the Margiela show in Paris, she leapt past in a pale pink bustier, cropped black jeans and a jaunty military hat, still in her runway makeup by Pat McGrath. Wow.
