One of the guys – Pier of Models Jam – thought it would be a good idea if we set up our own “photo pit” in the Tuileries to catch all the models as they went by. Pier and his Italian photographer comrades started with three chairs and a tripod. More photographers gathered alongside them, then a bunch of tourists formed at the sidelines, and before you know it we had created a sort of huge arena, or “studio,” as we called it, in the middle of the Tuileries. Justin O’Shea and Veronika Heilbrunner danced it up for the cameras. Such a fun moment.
W Magazine’s Karla Martinez always looks fantastic, but particularly on the last day of New York fashion week, when the rest of us looked a lot less refreshed. She sported a Proenza Schouler red tweed shorts suit to the Ralph Lauren show – a great example of how to mix flats with business attire.
More black and white! Obviously something is in the air. Model Saskia de Brauw wore a black cotton suit with white trim after the Marc Jacobs show. Love the sheer panel and also her mussed hair.
Models off duty Hjunjeong Ji and Irene Kim both wore black and white to the Ralph Lauren show in New York – a great graphic punch.
There are certain people we photographers count on to bust out the wildest looks from the runway during fashion week, and Bryanboy is one of them. Though intricate and costly masks have appeared on runways at Maison Martin Margiela, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen, this one goes back to the club kid roots of this trend (and Lady Gaga). It’s an inexpensive piece by Kandigear that you can find on Amazon. The sneakers are Dior.
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.
Well, this was definitely my favorite shot of the day. Ralph Lauren exited his 2015 resort show impeccably dressed in his own label. It’s hard to deny his star power. Even Condé Nast editors are starstruck by him, especially when his son David charmingly introduces him by saying, “Meet my dad.”
More burgundy and blue: Caroline Issa wore a burgundy and cobalt blue windowpane check suit to the Bottega Veneta show – it’s an unusual color combination that works beautifully. Also love the buckle shoes.
It was so cold on the day that Solange Knowles wore this outfit that I couldn’t bear to run the photo until now. But now it is the perfect look for spring: a pink cotton suit mixed with with a colorblock coat.
These two are one of the most glamorous couples in fashion, and it’s always a thrill to see them walking into a show together. Veronika Heilbrunner of Germany’s Harper’s Bazaar wore a lavender Christopher Kane paisley cut out dress to the Stella McCartney show yesterday, and Justin O’Shea wore his trademark three-piece suit. Also note the sneakers with the dress – very Chanel!
Miroslava Duma wore more crisp white to the Missoni show in Milan, pairing a pinstriped white suit with an Hermes bag and bustier-style top. A great look to keep in mind for spring. Also love the cut of the trousers: wide legged and cropped – and very flattering.
Anna Dello Russo wore an elegant full skirted tweed suit to the Bottega Veneta show on Saturday. Love the feminine silhouette of this look.
The ever-dapper Justin O’Shea of MyTheresa strode into the Marc by Marc Jacobs show in a gray plaid coat, gray three-piece suit, paisley tie and pink shirt. The whole look nodded to current trends (plaid, pink and paisley) but stayed within the parameters of O’Shea’s distinct personal style.
Inside the show, also attended by LVMH’s Delphine Arnaud, there were several big changes: the line is now designed by Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley, appointed this fall, and the new label name will be MBMJ.
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.
