I can never tire of the sexy librarian look. Is it the soft long cardigans? Or maybe it's the notion that you don't have to show a lot of skin to look sexy. Whatever it is, this look paired with some high heels, a la Burberry Prorsum's Resort collection, seems to do the trick. Note how soft fabrics and high heels keep you from looking frumpy, and yes, socks are optional!
If you think this shot from Prada's Fall/Winter lookbook is trippy, then you'll get full-on dizzy when you see the rest. Photos from advertisements, runway, and backstage have been taken and morphed into digital masterpieces. As expected, the lace pattern, funky footwear, and ruffly bags all make appearances, as do some of our favorite models. It's hard to explain it in words, so I'll let the photos do the talking . . .

Andrea Preiss is a creative director for an advertising agency. One of her perks is getting beautiful photos from famous photographers. Sometimes, all it took was a simple phone call and voilà! Other times, not so much. That's why she decided to create PhotographersLimitedEditions.com, a site where everyone can purchase exclusive images from the world's top photographers.
Here, you can purchase works from the likes of Elgort, Guy Aroch, Marc Baptiste, Rankin, Bruno Bisang, Roxanne Lowit, and Nigel Parry to name a few. Each photo is limited to 25 prints with prices ranging from $1,500 to $12,000. Pick and choose to your heart's, or wallet's, content.
Update: More styles from Jonathan Saunders's Target collection have been released. See them after the jump.
Target's Go International line is about to see its quirkiest, most avant-garde designs yet thanks to British designer Jonathan Saunders. The news of the collaboration came a few months back and I have no doubt that it excited the fashion-forward crowd. Starting Oct. 5, those who love a little funky in their closet will be able to score art-inspired pieces with splashes of color, modern silhouettes, and unique prints.
For his cheaper collection, ranging from $14.99 to $59.99, Saunders was highly influenced by artists like Gustav Klimt, Jackson Pollock, and Rothko (like far left ombre dress, worn by model Hanne Gaby Odiele). If those names mean nothing to you, perhaps a Wikipedia session prior to purchasing would help.

Look who left behind her pencil skirts and ruffle tops and decided to show some leg. Hayden Panettiere exited the MTV studios looking an ideal combination of sexy and cool. To achieve this look, she wore a black fitted turtleneck dress, topped with an edgy biker-style leather jacket. She broke up the black streak by throwing on Christian Louboutin's red suede pumps and red lipstick. A sparkly black clutch and some silver jewels complete this sassy look. I like this bold side of Hayden, do you?

With his Target contract expiring at the end of the year, Isaac Mizrahi is getting ready to move on to the world of Liz Claiborne. The deal was sealed in January and Issac is now showing off his sporty collection filled with color and fresh cuts such as the safari-inspired designs, seen below.
In his debut collection for the brand, Mizrahi offers up a selection of pantsuits, trench coats, and complementing accessories made in vibrant hues. Essentially, the line includes Mizrahi signatures but on a more-tempered scale than in the past. With items ranging from $30 for a tee to $250 for outerwear, it's pricier than his collaboration with Target, but I'm willing to give it a try. The collection will hit the racks in January.
