I love seeing the Chanel models actually in Chanel in real life. Sasha Luss mixed a red and black tweed Chanel dress with a biker jacket, tights and boots, and a big fur hat. Another beauty shot of the Chanel cat-eye makeup, after the jump. (more…)
Soo Joo definitely seems to be one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite models of the moment, and it’s always great to see her after the Chanel show. After the couture show in Paris, she left wearing a swingy Chanel tweed coat, made a little bit more edgy with the addition of leather leggings. Also note! Turtleneck sweater.
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.
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.
Loved this black and white look on Cosmo’s Shiona Turini (who is also the world’s most fashionable Bermudian). Black and white prints meet a black and white tweed skirt plus black and white shoes.
Sarah Rutson left the Missoni show in Milan in a sexy slit skirt mixed with a cropped tweed jacket and white turtleneck sweater. A gorgeous look.
Anna Dello Russo wore an elegant full skirted tweed suit to the Bottega Veneta show on Saturday. Love the feminine silhouette of this look.
Love the saturated moss green of her velvet blazer and how it plays off the green in her tweed pants. Also, burgundy and green is one of my favorite color combinations for fall.
Model Saskia de Brauw has really distinctive personal style. Most of us could not pull off overalls, but she makes them look super chic. Here she exits the Stella McCartney show in Paris in overalls, a tweed coat, leather bag and rugged lace-up boots.
Model Bette Franke probably had a 6:30 call time on the rainy morning of the Bottega Veneta show, and yet she still managed to dress with this certain je ne sais quoi, as you can see when she exited the show. Love how she mixed prints on the scarf and sweater with a colorblocked coat. The beautiful hair and makeup is from the Bottega Veneta runway.
These next few photos are in honor of Bill Cunningham, who loves to photograph fashionably dressed people hopping over puddles.
Anna Wintour may be high fashion, but that hasn’t stopped her from braving the elements like the rest of them. Outside the Victoria Beckham show, she forded a snow bank in flat rain boots worn with a tweed suit, blue and white fur top, and of course her trademark sunglasses.
Designers: here are some suggested trends for next winter’s NY fashion week: salting sidewalks and shoveling a clear path to the street. Don’t make Anna Wintour do this again.
The cover of today’s New York Times features a photo of the Instagram guys, whose company was just bought for $1 billion. But what did they wear to the photo shoot with the New York Times? Ill-fitting jeans and slovenly, untucked button downs. It’s really a disgrace!
Guys: there is a difference between looking casually cool and looking like a slob, though Silicon Valley in particular seems blind to the distinction. Better to follow the lead of my fellow photo blogger Karl-Edwin Guerre of Guerreisms, who arrived at every day of an epic three week fashion season in Europe perfectly turned out in elegant clothes. Yet his clothes are comfortable, and they can move – otherwise there’s no way to make it through day after day on your feet. If a photographer can look this good, so can the founders of Instagram.
