These two look très cool and perfectly minimal. They’re hitting so many trends right on the money: sweatshirts, baby blue, tall boots, loose shorts. I am dying for cooler temperatures so I can break out all my turtleneck sweaters and oversized sweatshirts. The luminous Parisian sun, along with tortoise sunnies and chic bags, is the perfect complement.
Yesterday’s runways took us from Italian holiday to historical Japanese fiction with classic prints from Valentino and startlingly bold lines by Alexander McQueen.
Valentino’s Grand Tour-inspired collection was as beautifully varied as Italy itself. Creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, aimed to transport us to an era of Italian esteem, when Europeans flocked to Italy for a lesson in culture and aesthetics.
“If you have one dress to pack, this would be my choice. It can feel day with a pair of flat Chelsea boots and casual jacket, or go sexy chic at night with a pair of classic high-heel Manolo BBs in black suede. Add a bold red lip and Parisian chic, you are!”
I have to tell you guys, Shiona is one of the coolest editors at Fashion Week. She’s got an awesome attitude and handles the hordes of photographers who are constantly surrounding her with grace. Plus, it’s refreshing to see someone smile for the camera! Shiona never lets me down style-wise, either. She’s always rocking a chic look with a twist. Loving this shirtdress with the belted shawl—and you can’t go wrong with fringe this season!
Caroline Issa hardly needs an introduction. She’s not only an industry heavy hitter, but she’s also one of the most popular street-style stars out there. In fact, Issa’s new line is coming out right here at Nordstrom! I can’t wait to get my hands on this sure-to-be-stunning collection.
Caroline’s style is both fashion-forward and understated. She has a knack for color and pairing interesting cuts and shapes. Love this wrap skirt and tall boots, with a menswear button-up. This modern ’70s trend is something I can get behind!
Designers are so good at making cold, unsexy winter (hello, long underwear!) seem hot. Case in point: the exclusive clip below that our friends at Akris punto were kind enough to share with us, which chronicles their campaign shoot for Albert Kriemler’s snowboarding-inspired collection for Fall/Winter 14/15. Starring Russian-born Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov—he of the cute nickname (“iPod”) and Olympic Gold Medal (at Sochi 2014) fame—the video plays like an ad for Switzerland’s soaring Alps and sleek winter style. Prepare for cheekbone envy.
M·A·C Senior Artist Gregory Arlt introduces the Brooke Shields Collection with an easy-to-follow tutorial using products from this down-to-earth new line.
The Brooke Shields for M∙A∙C Collection is perfect for creating a look that is simple, modern and beautiful. These easy-to-use shades can be used in endless ways. Below, you’ll find my interpretation and step-by-step instructions for creating an iconic look for yourself with these gorgeous shades.
Erika has totally nailed the normcore trend with this casual-cool outfit. Denim jackets are a classic and I love the roughed-up edges of this light-wash style. A simple, neutral palette keeps her look clean and seasonal. The full skirt is clearly the must-have piece of the year, but the adidas sneaker is not too far behind!
Eva Chen is so cute; I can’t even handle it! It’s been so fun watching her style evolve along with her pregnancy. She’s been a trooper throughout the insanely grueling Fashion Week schedule, but still manages to stay upbeat. This belted coat is an incredible statement piece, and I love the way Eva styled it with oxfords and a simple turtleneck. A modern cut and artsy print are definitely what I’m looking for in a coat this season.
