Carven Fall 2013 was shown against a backdrop of vintage car taillights, and the motif reappeared on the closing looks of the show. Guillaume Henry went for colors normally associated with Spring for much of the show, with voluminous coats with oversize rounded shoulders and mod bouclé skirtsuits in shades of robin's-egg blue and cotton-candy pink. Heavy rubber-soled Mary Janes grounded the looks while ruched ladylike bags played off the tonal zebra prints. Get revved up and click through to see the best of the show inside.
In the second installment of One of a Kind, the BCBG team is quickly putting together Onyinye's custom BCBG Max Azria jacket — but what our winner doesn't know is that she's going to get to attend BCBG's Fall 2013 runway show at New York Fashion Week! Before she hears the good news, Onyinye and Allison take a tour of BCBG's official headquarters, where the design team is perfecting the Fall collection and models are being casted for the runway. It's just days until the big show, and One of a Kind is catching all the last-minute preparation with Lubov Azria herself.
Spring is right around the corner, and what better way to lift your Winter blues than with brights? Whether you're looking to add a pop of color or make a head-to-toe statement, I'll show you two shortcuts to pulling off the brights trend in this video!

After a glamorous weekend in Hollywood at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, Miranda Kerr jetted over to NYC to attend the Victoria's Secret Fabulous Collection launch. Along the way, she delivered four stylish outfits that are easy to re-create. She updated her airport style with checks, went bold in a yellow one-shoulder, and proved the power of an all-black ensemble — watch on for a few styling lessons from Miranda. On Allison McNamara: Zara top, Collective Concepts pants, Forever 21 blazer.
The sneaker trend has spread through Hollywood like wildfire. Miranda Kerr, Jessica Alba, Naomi Watts, Jessica Biel, and so many more of our favorite stars have wholeheartedly embraced the sporty style, and for that we're forever thankful — not only are they cool, but so comfy, too. Parisian designer Isabel Marant was at the forefront of the sneaker craze (see Miranda and Jessica rocking two of her styles above), but now there's a new sneaker king in town: the Nike Dunk Sky Hi, which Naomi and Biel have been wearing. The price point for Isabel Marant's styles are on the higher side (upwards of $500), while Nike's are more affordable (around $120). But dollar signs aside, we want to know, whose sneakers do you prefer — Isabel Marant or Nike?

Manolo Blahnik revealed he's open to the idea of collaborating with a high-street store, according to an interview with Vogue UK. Does that mean a lower-priced shoe line, courtesy of Blahnik, could actually be in our future? It looks like we shouldn't get too excited (yet) — this is still just a pipe dream. The iconic shoe designer did assert, though, "If someone asked me to do high street and I really liked it, then why not? . . . If it was something exciting and I could really collaborate with someone marvelous then yes, of course." So, while we wait with bated breath for a mass retailer to step forward and take Blahnik up on this idea, we're asking you: would you buy into a lower-priced Manolo Blahnik collection? Weigh in below.
