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.
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.
Erica Pelosini stood out from the crowd in a Balmain skirt and black crop top at the Atelier Versace show in Paris.
A chic and sophisticated look on Anya Ziourova in crisp black and white at the Balmain show in Paris. The neck tie, with just one fold at the throat and the ends dangling long, is particularly in fashion right now. Try it with any silk scarf.
The holidays are the time to rock a serious cocktail dress, like this beautifully beaded and fringed Balmain leather dress on Anna Dello Russo, seen here at the Nina Ricci show in Paris. The tribal look gives it an amazing tough-chic vibe.
I still love the classic combination of black and blue, especially in winter when all black gets so boring. Top model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore a black and blue tuxedo jacket, black leather mini and black ankle boots and monogrammed navy blue bag to the Balmain show in Paris. It’s also amazing how she color-coordinated with her bodyguard – on purpose? The jet setter recently contributed a travel checklist to Who What Wear Daily that was totally personal and totally fascinating – check it out here.
When the weather gets tough, leather vests and pants are an even tougher shield against the cold. At the Balmain show in Paris, a guest wore an embossed snakeskin-giraffe print leather vest and green leather leggings. Chic armor.
This coat by Dries van Noten looks like a winner for fall/winter 2014. Editor and trendsetter Miroslava Duma, who wore a silver and black one to the Ralph Lauren show, wore a second version in burgundy and blue stripes to the Balmain show in Paris.
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.
Ciao, ciao everyone – that’s the end of Fashion Month FW2014. Wishing everyone safe travels back to home bases all over the world. But there are many more photos to come!
This is how to wear brights right now: by pairing them with neutrals, as J.J. Martin did at the Balmain show in Paris. Martin has really mastered the ladylike look, bringing adult polish to trends and making them her own. To wit: the discreet black shoes and bag that finish off the outfit, after the jump. (more…)
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.
