TBT: Edie Campbell at Louis Vuitton SS2014

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.

Leandra Medine at Theyskens’ Theory SS2014

Leandra Medine at Theyskens' TheoryLeandra Medine showed real fashion prescience when she wore these shredded, cuffed boyfriend jeans and a pink blazer almost a year ago. The look is still great for summer 2014.

Sara Nicole Rossetto at Alberta Ferretti

Love this look on Italian student Sara Nicole Rossetto: white button down, gold Zara pencil skirt and red lipstick. So simple but so right!

Taylor Tomasi Hill at Giambattista Valli

This girl really knows how to put an outfit together! Taylor Tomasi Hill wrapped a black and white striped scarf over a blue pantsuit and belted the whole thing, pairing it with black and white gingham shoes. It’s pretty brilliant, but it looks effortless. That’s another fashionable T.T. – Tommy Ton – in the background.

Emmanuelle Alt at Giambattista Valli

I love Emmanuelle Alt’s style because it’s simple, elegant and timeless. She doesn’t really go in for trends, relying instead on a daily uniform of chic basics. Just an all black outfit with a belt tied just so: this is something we can all attempt. Also note from a beauty standpoint that French women keep it real, eschewing blowouts, Botox and lots of makeup for a natural look that’s undeniably sexy.

Shala Monroque and the Eiffel Tower

This was one of my favorite “food and fashion” moments of the last women’s RTW season – the ever-glamorous Shala Monroque of Garage Magazine eating a beignet in front of the Eiffel Tower. She had arrived early for one of the shows and was just taking in the view. The vintage rabbit bag is a nod to her blog, Shala’s Rabbit Hole.

Anja Rubik at Gucci

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.

Tina Leung at Carven

Gender-bending fashion is in the news, with Jared Leto’s man bun and Diane Keaton’s tuxedo turning heads at the Golden Globes. For women, donning menswear isn’t just for black tie or Pitti Uomo: it looks sharp on a variety of occasions, as on stylist Tina Leung at the Carven show in Paris. The suit is Ralph Lauren, the stilettos Valentino.

Zlata Mangafic, After Chanel

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.

Linda Fargo at Carven

I’m always thinking of Linda Fargo at this time of year because of the fabulous Bergdorf Goodman holiday windows. Here she is looking great outside the Carven show in Paris. She told me the lips necklace is just a novelty item she picked up somewhere – it adds a little fun to an elegant black and white look.

Olivia Palermo at Carven

Every time I see this, I get shoe envy. Over-the-knee boots are great for fall 2013, especially with a minidress like the plaid zippered Zara one Olivia Palermo wears here. And yes, that is a horde of photographers running behind her!

White Lace Dress and Plaid Jacket, Outside Chanel

I love this combination of a formal gown made of exquisite white lace with a casual beret and plaid jacket. The jewelry and Chanel bag take it up a notch further, styling-wise. Very French, very Chanel.
