Now that we’ll spend the next few months bundled in multiple layers, it’s time to rethink your sweater game. Colorful granny sweaters like this “Lifestyles of the Visionary” one on model and actress Tina Kunakey Di Vita, spotted grabbing a little breakfast on the streets of NY, are particularly on-trend.
Sara Sampaio went for dramatic eyes and nude lips for the Glamour Women of the Year Awards last night, a great nighttime beauty look. Sequins were also a popular choice among the fashionistas on the red carpet.
Maybe it’s in the genes, but Kaia Gerber is already showing off some great personal style outside the shows. She exited the Prada show in leopard pants with mules and a vintage Metallica tee in Milan. Casual but chic.
Today in models speaking out: Edie Campbell penned an open letter to WWD, questioning the fashion community’s response to sexual abuse in the industry. As the New York Times has also pointed out, is the problem really limited to just one photographer, Terry Richardson? Really? Campbell also brings up the issue of male models who have suffered abuse – something we hear much less about. Definitely worth a read – and worth considering if victims can start naming names, as has happened in almost every other creative industry now, without fear of getting blacklisted.
Here’s a throwback Thursday pic of Campbell in 2013 after she closed the Louis Vuitton show covered in Stephen Sprouse-style body paint. If I remember correctly, she actually flew back to London immediately after the show still covered in body paint.
One of my favorite new models on the scene: Gisele Fox of Seattle, who closed the Prada show this season. Not only is she genuinely nice, she has a unique gamine look and great personal style.
Karlie Kloss is apparently a film buff – who knew? We are always discovering surprising things about fashion people we’ve been shooting for years. The supermodel is hosting “Movie Night With Karlie” on Freeform this winter with guests like Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn. Because if you’re going to curl up for a movie, wouldn’t you rather curl up with Karlie?!
Binx Walton, still very cool and low key after all her success, including starring in this season’s Celine ads. Her “have a good time” sweatshirt was a welcome sight in the hectic scene outside the Dior show.
An example of how a long-sleeved, high-necked frock can still be quite sexy, as seen on Jasmine Sanders at the Dior show.
Bright red is on track to become one of the big trends this fall, a color seen on model Marjan Jonkman last September. It looks especially sharp with black and white pinstripes. She was also ahead of the curve on ribbed sweaters, which are making a comeback.
Denim is still a must-buy for this time of year – call it the back to school instinct that never ends. A model at the New York shows draped a denim shirt with whipstitching over shorts and a tee for a layered look.
Model Sora Choi in a look that managed to be both goth and feminine, after the Jason Wu show SS2017.
Model Teddy Quinlivan vamped it up after the Jason Wu show in a vintage-inspired look that included a pencil skirt and custom Peels uniform shirt for “Theodora.” Love it.
You can always tell when models appreciate the runway makeup because, like Mali Koopman after the Jason Wu show, they leave it on when leaving the show instead of taking it off for the next one. A nude face and red lip are a good bet for summer beauty: simple but sophisticated.
Alek Wek wore a crisp suit in all white by Michael Kors to the Whitney Museum Gala – a look that could also go from day to night.
