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.”
Just a few hours before this year’s Met Ball, our thoughts go out to the men who’ll be attending. Much has been written already about the strict dress code of white tie and tails for the men. Spending thousands of dollars on an outfit you may only wear once – we women wonder what that must be like?!? C’mon guys, you can do it. Let these stylish guys outside the Roberto Cavalli show be an inspiration to us all.
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!
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.
A little menswear for you: Vogue columnist Hamish Bowles’s choice of a plaid suit in summer 2013 seems prescient now that plaid is everywhere on the streets for men and women. Also love how his socks match his shirt.
OK, this was not actually this week’s menswear show, since alas I am not in Milan at this moment, but still: the look is great for summer. The saffron yellow tie really pops, and all-over gingham is a bold move.
Looking forward to seeing the familiar faces of NY Fashion Week. Check back for the latest updates from the Fall/Winter 2013 shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – which starts at the Lincoln Center tents this morning!
And in the world of well-dressed men, what would we do without Vogue’s Hamish Bowles? At NYC’s Lincoln Center, his blue suit echoed the cobalt blue seen in collections like Stella McCartney’s for Fall 2012.
As usual, Hamish Bowles takes the award for best in men’s fashion. At the 2012 CFDA Awards, sponsored by Swarovski, he wore a Swarovski crystal bow tie with his tux. The magenta socks are the icing on the cake.
