Staying neutral: a great mix of blacks and tans on Pernille Teisbaek, including the new Chanel slingbacks in nude and black.
More black and white, this time on Stylebop’s Leila Yavari. This cut of this leather skirt is perfect for 2015 – slim but not quite a pencil cut, with an athletic-style gathered waist.
It’s been great to see Miroslava Duma back on the scene at Paris Fashion Week. At the Stella McCartney show yesterday, she wore a mix of shades of brown, patchwork coat and turtleneck sweater and carried a brown suede Hermes bag.
Tina Leung mixed a zebra print top and leather skirt by Cavalli with a Bulgari snake bracelet and clutch at the Cavalli show in Milan. The sexy shoes are Alaia. Bag detail, after the jump. (more…)
No matter what age we are, we can all take fashion inspiration from Carine Roitfeld. She manages to stay both on trend yet true to her personal style year after year. Before pencil skirts started popping up on runways everywhere, she was wearing them, bringing a classic trend into the new millenium.
Leave it to Rumi Neely to look sexy even in the dead of winter. Outside the Prabal Gurung show, she cut a stylish silhouette with a fluffy gray fur coat on top and black leather miniskirt on the bottom.
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.
Cosmopolitan’s fashion market editor and native Bermudian Shiona Turini is perhaps the most fashionable woman to emerge from Bermuda, well, ever. If you have ever whiled away a rainy summer afternoon rummaging through shops on Front Street in search of something that is not pink and green or patterned like your grandma’s tea cozy, you have felt my pain. And yet, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Shiona turns up at fashion weeks around the world fabulously attired. She was already sporting the trendy Fendi keychain in September, clipped to a fabulous Louis Vuitton clutch.
I loved this look on a guest at the Rodarte show. It’s a great mix of elements: an edgy leather skirt meets a girly floral jacket, all tied together with cool accessories: chunky sunglasses, green necklace, lots of bracelets and of course the covetable Celine bag.
Janice Alida is one of several models this past season – including Jessica Stam – to dye her hair dark brown. The look is striking and sleek, especially with a burgundy patent leather skirt.
Allure editor in chief Linda Wells brings professional polish to every outfit she wears during fashion week, but I especially loved the mix she wore to the Balenciaga show: Coat with contrasting lapel, mixed prints and a great leather pencil skirt. It looks both pulled-together and très chic.
We saw a lot of leopard prints this time last year, but like many things fashion, they have not died, they have been transformed into something else, morphing from saturated safari colors to muted shades of gray. Elle’s Kate Lanphear wore leopard print in black, gray and white outside yesterday’s Alberta Ferretti show. Her signature studded bracelets are Eddie Borgo.
Here’s more of my favorite transitional look of black and white, outside the Gucci show at Milan Fashion Week. Love the leather-paneled skirt.
