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.
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.
One of my favorite fashion writers ever, Lynn Yaeger, stopped for a moment outside the Comme des Garçons show in Paris for a photo. Her pretty and feminine outfit is quietly subversive – that’s a skull and crossbones motif woven into the Fair Isle collar. You can take the girl out of New York….
Vogue Australia‘s Christine Centenera looked amazing in a Peter Pilotto graphic print dress at yesterday’s Dolce & Gabbana show in Milan. The London-based Pilotto has quickly become a favorite of the fashion set.
Beautiful spring colors – cream and pistachio green – on Turkish Vogue’s Ece Sukan at the Ralph Lauren show.
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.
Vogue Turkey’s editor at large Ece Sukan mixed a white summer dress with a black turtleneck and snakeskin boots in one very cool outfit outside the Viktor & Rolf show.
And here’s one of my favorite photographs from the last day of New York Fashion Week: Grace Coddington paused for the cameras outside the Ralph Lauren show. She is holding a copy of her upcoming book Grace: A Memoir, to be released in November. Can’t wait to read it!
Anna Wintour wore a beautiful white floral print dress and statement necklace to Monday’s Donna Karan show, which received rave reviews.
And…. we’re off! The first full day of New York Fashion Week always has that first day of school feel to it. It’s good to see some familiar faces, like the ever-chic Virginia Smith of Vogue, who attended this morning’s BCBG Max Azria show dressed in black and white. Loved the monochromatic palette as transitional wear into fall and the animal print pants.
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.
French Vogue editor Emmanuelle Alt has been wearing white jeans year round for an effortlessly sophisticated look. At the Sonia Rykiel show in Paris, she paired them with a luxe leopard print jacket: high-low fashion at its best.
She has also been a big influence in beauty. Many of the fall shows were styled with models with very little makeup and loose, natural hair, à la Emmanuelle.
Anna Wintour, entering the Lanvin show in painterly plaid. Love how her personal style is both classic and colorful.
Vogue editor Virginia Smith has been rocking a key piece for fall 2011: wide-legged corduroys. Hers are by Theyskens’ Theory, worn simply with a black tee, black RayBan wayfarers and snakeskin clutch.
This French Voguette made waves this past Paris Fashion Week with her sporty but chic outfits. Here she pairs white jeans with a khaki top and leopard clutch for safari-inspired look that’s great for transitional weather. Detail shot of her shoes and bag, after the jump. (more…)
