French top model Caroline de Maigret wore an Etoile Isabel Marant cotton coat to the designer’s show in Paris. I love the shades of blue all over – including jeans and a denim Chanel clutch – and the tribal vibe of this spring coat. Very sexy and cool.
I love how simple and elegant this look is on model Anja Rubik after the Nina Ricci show. A slim below-the-knee skirt and ankle boots are a great way to dress up an oversize sweater.
Fei Fei Sun is definitely one of the most fashion-forward models in an industry where women tend to throw on jeans and T-shirts for their off duty hours. She left the Roberto Cavalli show in argyle tights, a denim and leather studded jacket, plaid kilt and fur moccasins – a cool post-punk look.
Here’s the first of our Milan Fashion Week photos – top model Anja Rubik looking stunning in black and white after walking the Gucci show. More to come soon!
We were thrilled to spot top model Karolina Kurkova at Prabal Gurung, dressed to the nines in leather colorblock pants.
Here’s hoping the frigid temperatures don’t last much longer – but as long as they do, here’s some cold weather outfit inspiration from model Nadja Bender in a big furry coat and boots at the Derek Lam show.
French model Caroline de Maigret paused for a minute outside the Rodarte show in front of some “love” graffiti. Not an accident, because we photographers love her! She was one of several show goers during fashion week to wear spring-y jeans in white or pale washed colors. Anything to usher in the warmer weather.
Loved this hilarious vintage Hooters sweatshirt and faux fur coat on Hanne Gaby Odiele, a top model with an irreverent sense of humor. As usual she delivers the message with a wink and a nod.
It’s always a treat to see top model Caroline de Maigret at a show, supporting Olivier Theyskens at a big Theory runway show. Love her chic but laid back style here: white sneakers with an oversize coat that echoes the menswear theme we’ve seen on the women’s runways.
Model Anja Rubik wore a cool mix of black and white at the Gucci show in Milan. The open knit sweater was particularly ahead of the curve and would be a great option for spring.
Model Katlin Aas has a cool, laid back style that’s casual but never haphazard. In Milan she conquered the cold with lots of layers under a leather jacket, an oversize scarf and beanie hat. Also like how she has styled the lace-up boots with wool socks for an outdoorsy look (also practical in the snow).
In Milan, the fashion set saw inclement weather as an opportunity to break out their best winter duds. This is really a case of “when in Rome” – Italian ladies have been known to don their best fur coats just for a trip to the grocery store. After the Moschino show, a model left in a brilliant red fur coat and leather leggings.
New model Zlata Mangafic was one of the most widely booked models during the past fashion week season and always a pleasure to encounter outside the shows. Her look reminds me of Chanel muse and model Stella Tennant, and like Ms. Tennant, she has laid-back but elegant personal style. After walking the Chanel show, Zlata left the Grand Palais in a green Edun leather jacket, Derek Lam tweed sequin skirt and Celine bag.
As a lifelong cat lover, I couldn’t be happier that cats are totally In! Now that my own cat is so on-trend, I won’t have to trade him in for a teacup chihuahua like Paris Hilton – at least not until next season. Model Joan Smalls threw her hat into the Team Cat ring with a cute studded cat-ears headband after the Chanel show. She also wore an amazing Karl Lagerfeld cartoon tee – detail shot after the jump.
