I still remember this bitterly cold morning last February. Model Irene Kim handled it with style, wearing a black leather jacket like a cardigan under an oversized fur coat. The white dress underneath is a nice sign of spring.
As simple as the sweater dress may seem, it’s actually all about taking it up a notch with great accessories. Elena Perminova looked gorgeous as usual in an eggshell white sweater dress, over-the-knee pale suede boots and Chloe bag outside the Chloe show in Paris.
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 and musician Jamie Bochert wore a plaid Prada dress after walking the Bottega Veneta show in Milan. The once-controversial grunge look has now become a timeless classic.
I like how Natalie Joos of Tales of Endearment can take new clothes, like this red mini dress by Valentino, and give them her own vintage-y spin. She brings out the ’50s styling in the dress by pairing it with a red headscarf and shades.
One of the guys – Pier of Models Jam – thought it would be a good idea if we set up our own “photo pit” in the Tuileries to catch all the models as they went by. Pier and his Italian photographer comrades started with three chairs and a tripod. More photographers gathered alongside them, then a bunch of tourists formed at the sidelines, and before you know it we had created a sort of huge arena, or “studio,” as we called it, in the middle of the Tuileries. Justin O’Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner danced it up for the cameras. Such a fun moment.
One fun thing about the Chanel show is seeing all the clothes and bags outside the show in real life on real girls. Chiara Ferragni looked fab in a colorful Chanel dress and bag from the F/W 2014 supermarket-themed collection.
As fun as it can be to see oodles of Chanel and Fendi during fashion month, it’s also great to see some of our favorite editors wearing new designers. Joanna Hillman wore a colorful print Tanya Taylor dress to the Nina Ricci show in Paris.
I don’t know how fashion writer J.J. Martin finds all these fabulous vintage clothes, but she certainly has an eye for them. Loved this stripey pink and black one at the Fendi show, which had side slits before so many designer started doing them this season.
One of the best things about getting dressed in warm weather: it can be as simple as just putting on a pretty dress. Work it for as long as you can, since fall is coming soon. Eleonora Carisi of Jou Jou Villeroy wore a pink snakeskin print Just Cavalli dress to the show in Milan.
Anna Wintour wore a khaki dress with a white floral print to the Michael Kors show yesterday. This warm khaki color, a signature Michael Kors color, is figuring prominently in men’s and women’s collections this fall.
