Valentino came to town this week to put on a resort show in downtown NYC. The fashion crowd came out in force for designer Pierpaolo Piccioli, who hasn’t missed a beat since taking full helm of the label last year. Harley Viera Newton was one of several starlets in attendance and arrived in a pink striped Valentino dress embroidered with hearts.
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.
In the press: a whole slideshow of photos I took for the New York Times Styles section for the Governors Ball. There were a few cool looks among the sea of jorts, notably this one on Jessica Louise Dye, who coordinated a bunch of balloons with her outfit. Fun and extremely practical for the friends trying to find each other at this huge music festival.
It’s that time of year again: time to bare your legs after a winter spent in hiding. Make the transition easier with mid-calf boots and a great jacket, as Irene Kim did at the Chloe show. We are seeing a lot of varsity and bomber jackets for spring, especially in this military green color. Kim was also ahead of the curve with her ombre hair.
Loved the clean sculptural lines and fall colors of this Salvatore Ferragamo dress on Giovanna Battaglia, spotted outside the Carven show in Paris. Another styling tip to note: turtlenecks are still going strong for winter 2015/2016.
A pretty look in a black and white romper on model Anastasia Chekry, still in hair and makeup from the Ulyana Sergeenko couture runway.
Actress Araya Hargate wowed at the Chanel couture show in an all-Chanel military look with a Napoleonic twist. Detail shot of the Chanel bag, jacket and skirt, after the jump. (more…)
Two big trends we saw at Coachella: hip bags a.k.a. fanny packs – logical because they’re a hands-free way to carry your stuff while you’re at a concert – but also ruffles, which was more surprising to me. Big feminine ruffles were everywhere on tops and dresses, perhaps stemming from the prairie chic on the runways for spring 2015.
This is about how cold it was on the streets today. The polar vortex has pushed temperatures well below freezing right during New York Fashion Week, and we’re bracing for more cold and snow this weekend. At least the fashion set is doing this cold thing in style.
Fashion blogger Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific looked perfectly polished at last winter’s Diane von Furstenberg show in a coat and boots with a cracked leather design and upswept hair.
Moi, je ne suis pas Charlie.
I am not nearly as daring or provocative as the cartoonists and editors behind Charlie Hebdo. But like many I am drawn to the provocateurs. Artists and free thinkers are indelibly associated with the city of Paris and should be always. In the world of fashion they would be the punks or those who dare to wear the crazy things no one else would. At the Rick Owens show, Natalya Bogacheva was one of them, donning Thom Browne’s rabbit ears hat and mask to twirl in front of the Eiffel Tower. Vive la Paris.
Architectural lines emerged as one of the big trends in the fall/winter 2014 collections. A simple white silk jacket and black pants with white stilettos can look perfectly tailored and elegant.
A cute look on a fashion fan girl outside the Miu Miu show. We may be veering away from crop top weather right now, but this would still work under a coat. Also note the creepers!
