One thing the cold weather elicited in New York fashion week guests was a flair for layering. A guest at the Michael Kors show layered a turtleneck and plaid dress under a trench coat, but kept it from getting too conservative by cinching her coat with a leather belt and adding a nose ring and multiple earrings. Also: necklaces over turtlenecks are A Thing now. Celine bag.
It has been good to see Michelle Harper again this week at Jason Wu’s shows, both his namesake brand and his collection for Hugo Boss. At the Boss Womenswear show, she wore a green and black dress and green and black fur with Iris Apfel-esque big round sunglasses. Round lenses have been making a comeback in the fashion set.
Olivia Palermo wore a great black and white floral print dress, black fur and sunglasses to the Carolina Herrera show in New York.
Harper’s Bazaar Germany editor Veronika Heilbrunner always looks great throughout fashion week, but this was my favorite outfit of hers during couture. She took a diaphanous floral Erdem dress and layered it over a white turtleneck, black leggings and sneakers. What a cool mix of high style and street.
It’s great to see the classic Dior silhouette on young new faces. Thai actress Araya Alberta Hargate emerged from her car in all Dior outside the couture show in Paris. Another view, after the jump. (more…)
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.
