We saw the front rows in New York, we saw them in London and we saw them in Milan–but no fashion week seemed to attract more famous people than Paris. As Fashion Month draws to a close, the celebrities descended on the City of Light to take in Chanel, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and at least one very splashy party for the new Carine Roitfeld movie.
Here’s what they wore, featuring Katy Perry, Hailee Steinfeld, Kim Kardashian, Kim Kardashian’s Breasts, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr and many more. More
Stars are in London for the most whirlwind leg of Fashion Month–after a week in New York, they spend a few days in the English capital before jetting off to Milan. Ahead, we’ve got Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, Anna Kendrick, Kelly Orsbourne and more–here’s what the rich, famous and occasionally fashionable wore to the weekend’s shows… More
Apparently, it takes a lot out of the beautiful, famous people whose job it is to dress well and attend the runway shows, because they all look like Hell. More
Celebrities love fashion week. Not just because they get wined and dined, sit front row, skip all the lines and leave loaded down with freebies–but because they get press, for the simple act of wearing clothes. Their outfits don’t have to be inventive, interesting or even stylish–if they’re famous and anywhere within a stone’s throw of Linc Center or Milk, they’ll get photographed. For dayz.
And we’ll contribute to the problem! More
The CFDA Awards went down last night and the big winners were Proenza Schouler (womenswear designer of the year), Phillip Lim (accessories designer of the year) and Suno (Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear). Oh, and everyone who’s famous for their red carpet presence showed up too–Jessica Chastain, Rooney Mara, Kerry Washington and a whole slew of models.
Here’s what the very stylish and the very victimized wore to the so-called Oscars of fashion.
For a long time, Olivia Palermo existed as that nebulous creature “red carpet fixture,” “street style star,” “socialite,” or (best of all) “it-girl.” You’ll notice how none of those designations mean anything? She then added model to the resume and fronted some campaigns (Mango, Hogan) but we figured she’d just go on being pointless, maybe “design” a collaboration or two, and always be “that girl from that horrible reality show.” The City, was it? Now she’s shown us, however, by inking a deal with Rochas. Even WWD doesn’t know what to make of it. More
Cinema Society & Piaget screened W.E. the other night in New York City and because W.E. is a film directed by Madonna (suck it, Zamyatin!) a whole lot of famous friends showed up in support. See what the Material Girl, Olivia Palermo, Parker Posey and more wore to the screening, and take note of Chloe Sevigny‘s fresh ’90s-inspired cut. More
It seems unfair to pit Olivia Palermo on her lonesome against two opponents, but she really comes out swinging! More
Yesterday in London, fancy fashion types feted the British Fashion Awards at The Savoy Hotel. Attendees included Kate Moss, Stella McCartney, Kate Hudson, Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, Victoria Beckham and Georgia May Jagger. Some very, very bad outfits were worn. Let’s begin! More
Fashion industry luminaries descended upon Natalia Vodianova’s White Fairy Tale Love Ball. Vodianova’s event called for “white or silver” gowns, which Daphne Guinness seemed to ignore. Check out all the opulent couture on supermodels (Stella! Mariacarla! Eva!), actresses (Anne!), designers (Valentino!) and editors alike. And Olivia Palermo. More
Yesterday we checked out some problem pieces–high waisted stuff, trouser leg jeans, formal shorts–items that aren’t necessarily evil but often wind up fashion fails by virtue of the challenges they present. Today we’ve collected some more. More
Last week, I was thinking about suits: namely, when it works, it’s awesome, when it fails, it really fails. So today I’ve compiled some photos of other pieces that present real challenges: high-waisted denim, harem pants, midriff-bearing 90′s looks and more. I wouldn’t say that anything here can be categorized as “always terrible” (capes are often awesome and functional!) but I would say most of them qualify as “hard to pull off” (as the title suggests–). So, what works here and what doesn’t is up to you. Moreover, what’d I leave out? More
