Trendsetter and street style muse Miroslava Duma wore a couple of sportswear-inspired dresses during Paris couture week, including this blue and orange colorblocked Dior dress at the Dior couture show. Note that she pairs it with super ladylike accessories. Pearl earrings, electric blue heels and a black Hermès bag keep the look very polished.
Fashion blogger Susie Bubble always stands out in a crowd. At the Valentino show, she wore Chanel shorts (vintage I think) a colorful print top and chunky heels and headphones. The element that brings it all together: the color blue.
One from the archives – I love these layers of colorful silk for summer, seen here on Natalie Joos outside a Dior show. The red lipstick and accessories add extra polish.
Naomie Harris, who plays Winnie Mandela in the upcoming biopic Long Walk to Freedom, attended the Armani Privé show elegantly turned out in a white cutout blouse and black pencil skirt with silver and black stilettos.
Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko appeared at Paris couture this week with a stylish new pixie haircut. At the Elie Saab show, a day after her own well-attended couture show, she paired a purple silk sheath with lace sleeves with Chanel’s wooden box bag and red stilettos.
I’m really afraid to see what all the celebs and fashion people wear to Monday night’s Met Ball for the new punk exhibit. Chances are that the red carpet will make us all feel cynical about the intersection of art and commerce. If a woman at the punk Met Ball really wanted to do it right, she would take an expensive SS2013 designer sheath, rip it to shreds and pin it back together with safety pins.
Fortunately you can still see real punk at Astor Place and St. Mark’s Place, where Kendall wore an all black look with amazing platform creepers, studded collar, black eyeliner, black nail polish and an black vinyl spiked backpack. “I got it at a stripper store,” she said. Now that’s anti-establishment. Accessory and makeup details after the jump. (more…)
This is how to wear brights right now: by pairing them with neutrals, as J.J. Martin did at the Balmain show in Paris. Martin has really mastered the ladylike look, bringing adult polish to trends and making them her own. To wit: the discreet black shoes and bag that finish off the outfit, after the jump. (more…)
After fashion week, there are certain outfits I keep coming back to in my mind when I am trying to get dressed myself. This is one of them, on Sarah Rutson outside the Dries van Noten show in Paris. She has styled it so expertly with the layered jackets (a great idea for this still-chilly time of year), navy polka dot blouse, pinstripe trousers, electric blue suede pumps and most importantly, that unexpected pop that comes from the bright Southwestern pattern on her belt. Perfection.
Natasha Goldenberg wore shades of winter white to the Diane von Furstenberg show in New York. Details of her shoes and shearling coat, after the jump. (more…)
A guest at the Marni show wore Fendi from head to toe one rainy Sunday in Milan. The studded, architectural open toe Fendi SS2013 sandals have been a big hit this season, seen on several pairs of fashionable feet outside the shows. Close up of those shoes, after the jump. (more…)
I really liked this transitional look on J.J. Martin at the Bottega Veneta show in Milan. It’s warm but colorful, as if she’s just waiting for spring to be sprung! The leopard coat is Emilio Pucci. Close-up of her shoes, after the jump. (more…)
Stylist extraodinaire Elisa Nalin looked quite elegant in a Valentino coat, dress and heels at the Trussardi show in Milan. Close-up of her Fendi bag and Valentino shoes after the jump. These were one of several pairs of shoes seen outside the shows with a clear acrylic heel that makes the wearer look as if she’s floating on air. Very Cinderella! (more…)
Photo blogger and stylist Zhanna Romashka made a big impact on the fashion show scene when we first saw her and even more so this season. At the Etro show in the snow she wore a very Russian look – camel cape with fur trim and pom pom, matching camel hat and leopard-print shoes. The bag is Hermès.
Michelle Elie of Garage Magazine wore black and white – including graphic print black and white knee socks – to the Lacoste show at Lincoln Center. Close-up of those socks, after the jump.
Some fashion people play fast and loose with the term “vintage.” It doesn’t refer to a bag from two seasons ago, but rather the treasures you can find when hunting through racks and racks of old stuff, as at Antique Boutique on Broadway in the ’80s and ’90s, when vintage had its heyday. Model Ruby Aldridge continues the tradition with the vintage stuff she wears all the time, like these cool jeans and Western boots. The resulting look is truly original. Close-up of those boots, after the jump.
