Paris Street-Style Stars to Watch

These are the people we can’t wait to see hit the pavement at Paris Fashion Week. Expect them to pull out all the stops for the last leg of runway shows.milan-fashion-week-aw15-street-style-2643

Emmanuelle Alt is the epitome of French chic with one of the most understated, yet exclusive styles of anyone out there. Making a name for herself under Carine Roitfeld, the editor-in-chief of French Vogue has perfected the art of styling jeans with sky-high heels, well-tailored outerwear and the perfect tee. With an underlying boyish vibe, Alt knows what works for her and exudes confidence in the most basic arsenal of leather motos, tailored blazers and casual tees.

Garance Doré on Androgynous Dressing and Picking Clothes for Paris vs. New York

Garance DoréHaving wowed the fashion world and won hundreds of thousands of fans with her fetching illustrations, innovative street-style snaps and charming writing, blog doyenne Garance Doré seemed to solidify the legitimacy of the entire medium with her acceptance of the 2012 CFDA Media Award—the first ever given to a blogger.

In addition to running her beloved site, Doré has pivoted her considerable creative might into tackling projects that run the gamut from YouTube maven to book author and—finally!—designer of a Nordstrom-exclusive capsule collection from Vince.

We chatted with her about the best way to style a turtleneck, the beauty of gender-neutral dressing and why grey skinny jeans bring out her Parisian side.

Your style embodies a perfectly combined sense of Parisian chic and New York cool. What item in your closet would you say most represents your French identity? Your New York identity?

My French identity to me are my grey skinny jeans. I don’t know why, but each time I wear them I feel very Parisian. My New York identity…is probably my giant winter parka, something I never needed anywhere else I’ve lived. It gets so cold here!

How did your design collaboration with Vince come about?

I think fashion is really about the way we edit our wardrobe, so we thought it could be fun to show what would be my edit of the Vince “closet.”

FEED’s Holiday Campaign Reminds Us What’s Really Important

The holidays are about a lot more than wondering what’s in your stocking. This time of year is a much-needed annual reminder to slow down for a second and remember what’s really important. To reconnect with family, friends and loved ones. To count our blessings for what’s going well. And to make sure we’re doing what we can to help those in need.

FEED, a philanthropic brand that’s provided more than 85 million meals globally, can assist with that last part—while checking gifts for said loved ones off your list in the process.

Keep reading to see FEED’s holiday portrait series featuring longtime supporters like Jessica Alba, Karlie Kloss, Chrissy Teigen and our own Pop-In Shop curator Olivia Kim, who came together to show how each FEED purchase can help fight world hunger.

Street Report: Garance Outside KENZO

Garance Doré is back with her signature style. Garance pulls off casual chic so effortlessly. As you all know, pink is the top color of the season, and this ribbed pullover has a gorgeous hue. The slit details make this jumper a perfect layering piece, and Garance handles the denim on denim trend with understated French flair. Minimal accessories and sleek stilettos keep this look simple and classically cool.

Street Report: Garance Outside Michael Kors

Blogger extraordinaire, Garance Doré, has that special je ne sais quoi quality that makes French women so effortlessly chic. Despite her fashion world celebrity, Garance is so sweet and calm. This tranquility is represented in her style, which is understated and yet unique.

Garance’s gold miniskirt garnered a ton of attention this morning, and I love how she’s toned it down with a loose cashmere sweater. We love you, Garance!

Street Report: Daily Highlights and Scene

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

Paris Fashion Week: Street Scene

Crystal is on the street at Paris Fashion Week and is sending us the first images of the scene. From fashion’s elite to bloggers and buyers, Paris is buzzing with stylish inspiration.

When you have the cameras of both Scott Schuman and Bill Cunningham trained on you, you know you must be doing something right.

Vogue Japan Editor-at-Large, Anna Dello Russo, looking lovely in a color-block dress.

The golden ticket: metallic everything. We’re seeing it everywhere–on shoes, denim, tops, dresses–you name it.

Blogger extraordinaire Garance Doré sparkling in Miu Miu pumps.

Tamu McPherson from All the Pretty Birds looking bubbly–as usual–despite the rainy weather.

Loving the furry jacket and peekaboo, sheer top.

Pretty, bold statement rings.

How can you not have a good time in houndstooth?

Waiting for a show–natural beauty can really stand out in a crowd.

We haven’t forgotten the dapper gents at Fashion Week. Have you seen the coverage on our Men’s Shop Daily blog?

Street Report: Scott Schuman and Garance Doré

Blogging powerhouses Scott Schuman and Garance Doré had a rare moment of downtime outside the Topshop Unique show. Of course, they were instantly swarmed by hordes of photographers, but they were very gracious.

It’s crazy to think how swiftly and completely the fashion scene has embraced bloggers, and these two are on the forefront of the movement. Thanks for the continued inspiration, you two!
