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.
Model Soo Joo Park left the Chanel show clad in Chanel, including a double C printed bandana-style silk scarf. Bandana motifs have been big both at Chanel and Saint Laurent, and if you don’t have the budget for one of these designs, you can always get in on the trend with just a regular black and white paisley-print bandana, $2.99 at Ricky’s.
At the Ralph Lauren show in New York, Shiona Turini used her street style clout to make a political point with her “they have names” tee – so names like Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin stay on people’s minds even when we are living in the bubble that is fashion week. Not only that, it actually looked chic.
Model Katlin Aas wore a polished and chic version of the rocker chick look after walking the Michael Kors show. Long layers on top are key for fall, as are low heeled boots like these.
More black and white! Obviously something is in the air. Model Saskia de Brauw wore a black cotton suit with white trim after the Marc Jacobs show. Love the sheer panel and also her mussed hair.
Models off duty Hjunjeong Ji and Irene Kim both wore black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York – a great graphic punch.
Rumi Neely brought a new companion to the Prabal Gurung show: her puppy Titan. Titan is very fashion: he looks fierce even when he is in a good mood. Both knew that the all-white look is still chic after Labor Day especially when mixed with black accents.
It was such a pleasure to see these two lovely ladies Caroline Issa and Yasmin Sewell at the Ostwald Hegalson show yesterday. Both wore black and white maxi dresses (Yasmin’s by Josh Goot) and both are designing their own clothing lines now. Caroline Issa’s for Nordstrom comes out in spring 2015, and Yasmin Sewell’s collection for Barneys is in stores now.
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.
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.
Here’s a look seen this winter that’s actually perfect for right now: a pale pink coat paired with black and white Fendi heels, black Chanel bag and white skirt.
