Are you posting a #WCW on Instagram today? If you haven’t already, you should, because today is International Women’s Day, a day when women all over the world are celebrating each other and the collective goal of building a more unified working world. And it’s no secret that the fashion and beauty worlds are led by smart, successful women who not only influence the way we shop, dress and curate our top shelves (not to mention our Pinterest boards) but also inspire us with their amazing personal achievements and career stories. From nail polish moguls and fashion designers to editors and photographers, we interviewed four amazing women who filled us in on their work wisdom, career advice and (bonus!) what they wore to their first interviews.

Here’s How to Create the Season’s Most Stylish Dinner Party (and Brunch, and More!)

There’s more to the season than the bold-face main events. Not to take away from the traditions and ceremonies that mean the most to you and your family, but wouldn’t you agree that the last-minute get-togethers and low-key shared meals that end up happening before and after are every bit as meaningful and special?

And aren’t the outfits just as good, too?

We’re in favor of celebrating togetherness as often as possible, and we’re also in favor of looking at decor and party vibes in the same way we look at fashion: as a mix of classic motifs, artfully unearthed components and new, inventive spins on everything else. 

HERE’S HOW

Last Looks: Yesterday’s Runways at Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane, Antonio Berardi and Burberry

Distancing themselves from the digital microprints that were once their bread and butter, Peter Pilotto‘s designers offered a collection of winter wears as practical as they were opulent.Peter_Pilotto_166_fw16Looking to nature and the northern landscape as inspiration for their tactile fall showcase, Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos added colors and textures evocative of icy winter scenery. Majestic sweeping hemlines, fluid silks, luxe furs and lace added a soft, Nordic feel with abstract swirling chenille embroidery and delicate knitwear offering substance. Large pinstripe pantsuits were more lackluster, but tiered ruffles on Lurex lace two-pieces joined rippling metallic frocks to close out the show with a bang.

Street Report: Kate Outside Valentino

The sublime stylist, Kate Foley, embodies the modern-lady aesthetic. She takes risks, but maintains a sense of elegance. Her bold, textural coat is the perfect springtime topper and her minimalist pieces allow those standout accessories to shine. And, don’t forget, the full skirt is one of the must-have trends of the season!

Runway Rundown: Christopher Kane

As always, Christopher Kane turned out a strikingly innovative new collection at London Fashion Week. This season, the British wunderkind worked origami-style layering and tons of nylon into his recurring theme of flowers and wings. The result was dramatic and cutting-edge — two terms that have begun to define Kane’s aesthetic.

Street Report: Wendy at John Rocha

Wendy Gilmour (Thankfifi) is no stranger to our blog, so I was thrilled to run into her once again. This Glasgow-based beauty says she’s inspired equally by street style and the runways. I totally agree!

I love the casual simplicity of Wendy’s look. Her bold colors and classic cuts stand out in a sea of monochrome, and we all know how much I love stilettos and denim!

Street Report: Linda Outside Place Vendôme

Camo is having a high fashion moment, thanks in part to Christopher Kane. Linda’s casual camo hoodie puts a laid-back street wear spin on her otherwise ladylike outfit. The peek-a-boo mesh skirt and mirrored sunnies have been on my shopping list, but now I’m moving them to the top!
