It’s easy to forget how totally crazy the scene outside the Paris fashion shows has gotten when you’re in the middle of it for a couple days. Scene from an average evening: Olivia Palermo entering the Fendi couture show, flanked by bodyguards and surrounded by photographers, tourists, selfie-seeking teenagers and PETA protesters.
A beautiful look in vivid blues and greens on Turkish Vogue’s Konca Aykan at the Atelier Versace show.
Loved this classic American sportswear look on Elina Halimi outside the Tommy Hilfiger show in NYC. There’s a twist though: that fairisle sweater by Saint Laurent is embellished with pale sequins. Celine bag.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the fashion got wild at the Jeremy Scott show. Sam and Cailli Beckerman of Beckerman Blog mixed Moschino bags and Sponge Bob visor with sequins and painted jeans. Cailli Beckerman actually painted the Beavis and Butthead cartoons on those jeans herself – impressive!
Olivia Palermo looked beautiful as usual at the Dior Cruise show on Wednesday. A Spanish style fringed bolero jacket is a great topper for evening over a sheer white top, but Olivia added a little edge to the outfit with a black leather skirt with a slit up one side.
It may snow again in New York today. We can’t take any more winter! Therefore I’m going to try to focus on the cheerful colors worn by Indre Rockefeller at the Derek Lam show, where she mixed a cherry red coat with a pink top with sequin flowers. There has got to be spring around here somewhere.
On 57th Street and Fifth Avenue in New York, the shop windows are sparkling right now with rhinestone embellished shoes (Miu Miu) and mirrored backdrops for mirrored dresses (Naeem Khan at Bergdorf Goodman). This Miu Miu mirror paillette dress seen outside the Prada show would be an irreverent and fun take on holiday party dressing. The dress is sheer, but I like how she has worn black underneath to keep it simple. Pair it with sexy sheer black stockings in cold weather. (more…)
Model Jessica Hart lingered outside Milk Studios after a friend’s presentation.
Food note: The People’s Pops, the artisanal popsicles sold at Chelsea Market across the street, have been extremely popular with the fashion crowd.
At this weekend’s Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island, there was a surprising crossover between 1920s looks and goth in several of the guests. Both aesthetics are related to Steampunk and involve a lot of attention to detail, vintage, and a love of costuming. The mashup was pretty brilliant on this young woman, who wore a black vintage jacket with her black sequin shorts and black hat, nicely contrasting with cherry-red lipstick. Very cool personal style.
Joanna Hillman looked particularly glamorous at the Donna Karan show in a long, silver sequined skirt by J.Crew. It works beautifully for daytime when paired with a black blazer.
Before there were slim cut cargo pants on every retail floor on every corner, there were slim cut cargo pants on the runway at Balmain. This French label spearheaded the military chic trend that has resonated with consumers over the past few seasons. Slightly androgynous but always sexy, Christophe Decarnin’s designs have quite a following, as evidenced by the cool crowd outside the Le Grand Hotel.
A fabulously tough look. Note the camouflage – a pattern that appeared on several fashion-forward editors. (more…)
