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.
While it’s true that Coco Chanel popularized the little black dress in 1926, it was more for evening than for a summer garden party. Kudos to everyone who figured out that white was the standard 1920s attire for a hot summer day – like this vintage lace flapper dress with a beaded hem. All white in the summertime is still a chic choice today.
Loving the all-white look for summer 2011. The spectator shoes add a nice 1920s touch to this dress, and the artfully braided updo is perfect for hot weather.
I always find it difficult to figure out what to wear on rainy summer days. This white cotton overcoat was a practical, lightweight and pretty solution at the Central Park Conservancy Luncheon. The earrings are Chanel.
The few men who attended the Central Park Conservancy luncheon last week dressed the part, like this guest in a beautiful cream colored suit and hat with a pale pink tie and pink pocket square. He’s carrying his dress shoes in that plastic bag – a practical choice on a rainy day.
New York’s new first lady of sorts, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s girlfriend Sandra Lee, exited a limo wearing white and a towering hat in the shape of huge pale flower. Though controversial in the food world, she’s quite a hit fashion wise. Full shot after the jump. (more…)
I never get tired of exquisitely tailored white shirts or shirtdresses – like this one on a model off duty in the Tuileries.
Update: She is Elena Perminov.
