We can't say we're surprised that Olivia Palermo was among the chicest of the style crowd (that much we predicted), but we were thrilled to see her making the rounds from NYC to London and Paris regardless — and as usual, we couldn't get enough of her eclectic-meets-ladylike twist on styling. Now, with Fashion Month coming to a close, we couldn't quite wrap it up without taking a look back at Olivia's complete FW lineup. There's lots to be learned from this mix — like how to balance high-and-low pieces from the likes of Topshop and Valentino, or how to pull off a play on texture, color, and print all at once. Plus, Olivia gets real bonus points for keeping it interesting every step of the way — that's no easy task when you consider that Fashion Week from city to city is more than four weeks long. With every front-row appearance, Olivia's got some serious styling know-how, and we're making it all easy to take to your own closet. Flip through the lookbook to see every ensemble, then shop your favorites.
Paris Fashion Week is over, and we're rounding up the last crop of style setters who made their way over to the City of Light. Jennifer Lopez, Poppy Delevingne, and Lou Doillon all put together enviable ensembles for Chanel's Spring 2013 show. Meanwhile, Salma Hayek made the rounds, attending shows like Balmain, Stella McCartney, and Saint Laurent. Her last stop? Alexander McQueen! Watch on to hear more about their front-row ensembles. On Allison McNamara: 81 Poppies top, Lauren Elan necklace.
We can always rely on a showstopping performance at Louis Vuitton, and once again Marc Jacobs delivered. There were no trains this season, but the designer kept the energy up with four giant escalators that poured out onto a yellow and white checked arena. The '60s Edie Sedgwick-inspired vibe he put out at his namesake line carried over into his designs for Louis Vuitton — black, white, and acid yellow checkerboard motifs were overt, and the former collection's party girl hairdos got some polish at the latter with bow-bedecked headbands. If you're looking for a way to update shift dresses, matchy-matchy suits, and otherwise mod silhouettes, you can check that off your list thanks to MJ.
The Valentino Spring '13 show made us very sure of one thing: wearing one of these gowns will make you feel like the prettiest girl in the world. Season after season, designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli put the most romantic spin on delicate slips, scallop-edged flower dresses, and lovely lace. And while Spring '13 proved no exception, the collection also pushed the house's sartorial boundaries with a series of eye-catching trench coats, prim accents, and see-through plastic shoes. Get swept away — watch the entire runway right here, right now.
It seems as though Miuccia Prada took a little inspiration from Mad Men for Miu Miu's Spring 2013 collection then took swing coats, pencil skirts, and bralet tops with it into undeniably modern times. Denim, vinyl, and duchess satin rendered the elegant silhouettes a touch edgy, a vibe highlighted by the upswept glasses and high-cut bangs. But the real standouts were the killer accessories: mink stoles, crushed leather handbags, rhinestone and leather necklaces, and of course knife-sharp pointy-toe shoes. Watch to enjoy it all!
Sarah Jessica Parker was just spotted taking a stroll in NYC wearing gray cropped leggings with a pair of taupe suede high-heeled booties. As soon as we saw this look, it gave us flashbacks of the all-black biker-shorts ensemble Gwyneth Paltrow sported in London back in 2008. Can it be that SJP is bringing back the sporty-slash-dressy trend? We admit that it's not a look for the masses, but when done right and by the right person — like Gwyneth and Sarah Jessica — it can be super fresh. So tell us, would you wear sporty leggings with heels? Vote below, then leave a comment with your thoughts on this celeb-inspired trend.
It's no secret that Tom Ford makes sexy-as-hell clothing — hello Gwyneth Paltrow in white! — but did you know that he can design quite the killer heel, too? Kim Kardashian is already a fan of his chain-ankle wedge sandals as well as these gold t-strap chain sandals. Now there's a brand-new Tom Ford shoe obsession in Hollywood and it's with these Tom Ford padlock ankle-strap pumps ($1,100)! Find out who owns a pair, then shop the stunning shoe for yourself.
If you're living in black and white (clothing, that is), allow us to introduce you to Fall's fresh palette. Rich jewel tones are making this season's pieces all the more enticing, and truthfully they look even better piled on in complementary, contrasting, and shades of the same hue. Color stories rife with colorblocking, textural, and tonal play give these looks a leg up on Fall style — and to make it easier to help you give your own looks a lift, we're outfitting eight winning combos right here. Forget 50 Shades of Grey, these outfits make use of the season's vibrant color wheel in just two pieces. Click on to see how it's done and shop your favorites.
