Leandra Medine

There are few idols from our youth with whom we’re still enamored. Most childhood stars dwindle once adulthood arrives, when our seasoned tastes and collected experience reveal chinks in the gilded armor of celebrity. But Miss Piggy is one for whom our regard has only grown as we’ve grown up.

Frankly, she’s a badass. The professional actress, spokes-pig, karate enthusiast and fashion plate holds her own amid a colorful cast of mostly male Muppets. She is outspoken, brash when circumstances call for it, genteel when the situation is otherwise. Her flair for fashion and her unapologetic femininity and ambition are characteristics that plant her firmly in the modern era, even though she has been in the public eye for four decades.

Miss Piggy.

All this makes her the perfect star for kate spade new york’s latest “Miss Adventure.” We spoke with Miss Piggy about the new collection of accessories, for which she was the muse, her co-star, Zosia Mamet, and how she manages to do it all while including time for romantic entanglements.

First things first. How is your love life? Are you seeing anyone green?

 Moi’s love life is fantastique! As for “anyone green,” I can’t imagine what you’re talking about. Oh, you mean, “him” … Well, we’re still friends and colleagues, but for now, I’m done with “A for Amphibians” and I’m working my way through the rest of the alphabet. To put it succinctly, I’m not just seeing anyone … I’m seeing everyone.

Solange’s look is modern prep with a punk edge. I love the check pattern blocking on her skirt. The safety pin detail and corset-laced tights are subtly subversive, while a collared shirt and loafers feel prim and proper. Kitty is more casual cool in a pair of cuffed jeans, graphic tee, denim jacket and fresh white sneaks. Great coats with tonal patched fur tie these two together. Solange’s shawl collar is classic, and Kitty’s full-back coverage is fun and playful. Great job, ladies!

The plot thickens. Remember how we told you about the Robert Clergerie x Man Repeller contest? Some lucky Instagrammer is going to Paris on their dime, and now we know who it might be.

For instance, it might be Jen Szeto, who ’grams dreamy scenes and cool-girl looks from San Fran as @windowofimagination. She’s among the four style-makers chosen by Leandra Medine and Clergerie Creative Director Roland Mouret from among the oh-so-many who attempted to hashtag their way across the ocean and into the star shoe brand’s design room. Because, yeah, in addition to just getting to the City of Light, the lucky winner gets a place at the table as Mouret and team work on upcoming styles.

It was a cold, windy Saturday in New York City. The snow finally stopped falling, but the drifts caused by plows made navigating the streets treacherous, especially for stiletto-wearing fashionistas!

I ventured away from Lincoln Center today for some of the uber-hip shows, like Band of Outsiders and Alexander Wang, and was rewarded with a veritable who’s who list of the industry’s elite. From Joanna Hillman to Leandra Medine, everyone braved the wind and snow for a glimpse at next year’s fashion.

Somehow, the crowds and traffic and hectic show schedule only make Fashion Week more fun. It’s so inspiring to be here, right in the middle of the craziness, and I wouldn’t change a thing! Well, maybe less snow, but we can’t have it all. 🙂

xo, Crystal

Another cold day out on the streets of NYC at Fashion Week. But that didn’t stop fashion’s style stars from running around seeing the shows today. Here are a few of our favorite looks and people.

The lady behind Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, staying warm in the snow.

British model and socialite Poppy Delevigne clutching a fringe handbag.

A playful combo of color and an equally playful handbag with a pop art motif—like these from kate spade.

Loving the standout sunglasses frames on this duo.

Caroline Issa in killer over-the-knee stiletto boots.

Elena Moussa embracing the metallic shine trend on her pointy-toed pumps.

Kate Lanphear, style director at T Magazine.

Kristina from KAYTURE making her return to the Thread for the third time.

Lauren Rae Levy—as lovely as usual in her floppy wide-brimmed hat.

L.A.-based blogger for Late Afternoon, Liz Cherkasova, in a covetable pair of metallic booties.

None other than the striking Olivia Palermo under that furry trapper hat.

Can’t stand how much we love the classic and retro blend that’s happening in this look that Ndoma is sporting.
