Carice van Houten at Schiaparelli FW2016

Carice van Houten a.k.a. the Game of Thrones‘ “Red Queen” looked so positively vibrant in fuchsia at last year’s Schiaparelli show that I didn’t recognize her until now. Just goes to show you want a jolt of summer color can do.

One trend we noticed at the Governors Ball – several stylish attendees were wearing chinoiserie-style robes as outerwear. Stylist Catherine Baba of Paris has been doing this for years, often pairing hers with a sun hat.

Miroslava Duma at Schiaparelli FW2016

It’s rainy it’s snowing it’s sunny – what to wear? Take a cue from Miroslava Duma, who paired cropped jeans with a white coat and black beret for a great transitional look at the Schiaparelli couture show.

I guess it’s the prep in me, but I’m always a sucker for bright colored pants in the summer, like these bright pink ones seen on Lorena Vergani at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris.

This was our first sign that something had happened to the mighty stiletto: when French Vogue editor Emmanuelle Alt arrived at the first show of Paris Couture last summer in low, red cap-toe heels. A statement shoe indeed!

Carine Roitfeld at Schiaparelli FW2014

Carine Roitfeld at Schiaparelli FW2014The weather this week reminds me of the weather during last summer’s couture week in Paris, when it was relentlessly rainy and gloomy – in the middle of July! This didn’t trouble the fashion set too much, however – one solution, as Carine demonstrated, was to wear your usual summer dress but pair it with great boots or a jacket.

Sarah Ann Murray of The Rake magazine layered a plaid cape over a plaid jacket at the Schiaparelli couture show in Paris, to great visual effect. And also practical warmth, as mentioned in today’s New York Times Thursday Styles, where my photo of Irene Kim in layered coats illustrates the point!

Another cool detail we saw several times on Paris couture week attendees: decorative leather buckles at the neck of jackets and capes.

Anna Wintour at Schiaparelli

Anna Wintour at Schiaparelli FW2014

I was initially against the idea of the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” seeing it as a kind of slacktivism. But apparently many of those who take the challenge, in which you have to throw a bucket of ice water over your head or give $100 to benefit A.L.S. research, end up donating either way. Over $13M has been donated to ALS research since this fad started. Never one to ignore a trend, Anna Wintour has just taken the challenge and captured it on video. See the video here – or see her in her normal dignified work state, as at the Paris couture shows, above.

Anya Ziourova at Schiaparelli FW2014

Anya Ziourova at Schiaparelli FW2014

Anya Ziourova is one of the best dressed women on the fashion week scene, and certainly one of the best dressed pregnant women anywhere. Rather than sticking to maternity clothes, she adapts current fashion to her changing shape. At the Schiaparelli show in Paris, she wore a green top and skirt with zigzag trim. Close up of her Olympia Le Tan “Greater Love” book clutch, after the jump.  (more…)
