As you may have read in this article, some Chinese women are going to extremes this summer to avoid the sun, even wearing ski masks to the beach! There’s no need to go overboard, though. Chinese actress Fan Bingbing looked dazzling in all white – right down to a white Louis Vuitton umbrella to guard against the sun’s rays – outside the Louis Vuitton show this spring.
At yesterday’s Mister Sunday party in Gowanus, beauty ad executive Andrea took a break from DJ Justin Carter’s set to pose in this amazing outfit of vintage white Gap overalls layered over a gray tank top. Her elaborately braided hair and the vintage glasses make the look super individualistic.
Open and airy crochet was a chic way to beat the heat at Bonnaroo. An ivory crochet dress serves as a bathing suit coverup here, paired with a headscarf, Ray Ban aviators and sandals. Like many guests, she piled on the bracelets to accessorize that Bonnaroo wristband.
Loved this cooly elegant look on a male guest at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. It’s preppy, yes, but also modern, with two-tone boating shoes and sleek sunglasses. Like many at the polo match, he accessorized with a Veuve Clicquot picnic blanket in their signature saffron yellow.
An oversize insect pin conjured up the surrealist designs of Elsa Schiaparelli on this guest en route to the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala. A white silk dress and gray fur provide the perfect neutral but elegant backdrop.
Parisian stylist Catherine Baba cycled by in a white trench, printed pants and her trademark turban outside the Haider Ackermann show. Trés chic!
Pet peeve: I hate black puffer jackets, even though I own one. This winter in New York it was black puffer jacket after black puffer jacket on the streets, with very little color in between. I stood out in the cold shivering for hours (admittedly, sometimes in my black puffer jacket), praying to photograph something, anything other than a black puffer jacket! But stylist Ursina Gysi shows how to take an ever-present trend and make it your own. The beautiful silver tone and athletic jacket collar make this puffer stand out from the crowd. With a white lace dress, saturated blue bag and graphic black and white booties, the whole look is refreshingly cool and unexpected.
More white pants in February, this time on Vogue‘s Meredith Melling Burke, in a flared style that goes well with a simple camel coat. The look is luxe but classic.
Dear Lord – I forgot I took this photo! Taylor Swift arrived at the Rodarte show in an exquisite lace dress by the designers. This kind of beautiful craftsmanship looks even better close up – and very pretty on the country music star, especially with her matte red lipstick.
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…)
The epitome of grace under pressure, Emmanuelle Alt has really aced NY Fashion Week – not just with her composure but with her cool, casual wardrobe. Before she was named Editor in Chief of French Vogue, her look was super sporty. Now it has evolved to something more sophisticated but still entirely her own, like this combination of crisp blue button down, white jeans and Hermes bracelet watch. Simple but perfect.
In a recent interview with various designers, WWD asked them: white after Labor Day, yes or no? Most said yes – with certain conditions attached. It has to look intentional, not haphazard. Here’s a crisp, chic look outside the Vivienne Tam show last September – especially great with neon accessories.
