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.
Michelle Harper wore this exquisite belted brocade coat to fend off wet weather at the DKNY show. The cat eye sunglasses and red lipstick are the icing on the cake.
Michelle Harper has the most amazing personal style that always seems to reference vintage, though her clothes are often by up-and-coming American designers. She’s like a 1920s flapper who’s been airlifted to modern times. At the Jason Wu show, she wore a black fur coat and a black turban with red lipstick, perfect for blowing a kiss in the snow.
Michelle Harper wore Prabal Gurung to the designer’s show on Saturday.
Michelle Harper wore a beautiful ivory brocade dress and coat to yesterday’s Viktor & Rolf show in the Tuileries. So timeless and elegant, perfect for Paris. And the gloves! Very Grace Kelly.
I’ve been looking through some old photos before next week’s NY Fashion Week and came across this one of Michelle Harper (with Tommy Ton in the background). Love how her look is a cross between super modern and old Hollywood glamour.
True confession: I’ve almost given up on buying anything other than shoes and coats for winter. For five months of the year, it’s nearly all anyone sees of one’s outfit in cold New York, so you might as well have a statement-making coat. Michelle Harper wore a bold mustard yellow trench with a huge, sculptural lapel and matching shoes to the Viktor & Rolf show in Paris. It’s a great example of how one piece of clothing can make an outsized impact.
