For Fall 2012, Kanye West's sophomore collection showcased a darker, edgier mood, right down to the smudged kohl eyeliner and tough-girl knee-high boots. Further confirming what we think is one of Paris Fashion Week's most prevalent trends, the rapper-cum-designer sent out model after model in head-to-toe leather. From slick fit-and-flare skirts to ultracool biker jackets, the Fall '12 lineup was made for the girl who strikes a perfect balance between polished, super sexy, and, yeah, a little rough around the edges, too. Our full runway report is coming shortly, but click through to see Kanye's complete collection now.
Dakota Fanning has always had a great sense of style from an early age, as does her younger sister, Elle. We caught up with Dakota at Cosmo's Fun Fearless Female Awards in NYC last night, where she told us about influencing her sister's style and raiding each other's closets! Even though Dakota is older, she still gets Elle's input when putting together outfits. Watch our cute interview with Dakota in today's Fab Flash! On Allison McNamara: Millau jacket, Lia Sophia necklace.
Stefano Pilati's Fall collection was edgy and dark, with leather gracing everything from tuxedo lapels, to tops, to trousers — which Stefano teamed with luxe fur trim, large prints, and cinched waists. Ladylike silhouettes like pencil skirts and shift dresses were made out of chain mail, toughening up traditionally feminine pieces — and of course, it wouldn't be a YSL runway without a Le Smoking jacket or two. After watching the show, read our editors' full review.
For Fall 2012, designer Clare Waight Keller showed a sporty, effortless collection filled with chunky knits, longer hemlines, and lovely, wearable outerwear. The silhouettes were streamlined and unfussy and often executed in a dreamy pastel palette. To see the entire collection — and pick your favorite coat — watch the full runway now, then read our editors' review here.
Last night at Cosmo's Fun and Fearless Awards at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, we caught up with Rose Byrne, who told us how she chose her Vivienne Westwood Oscars dress, how her bangs have influenced her style, and why she loves Kate Moss. Watch our video to see the lovely Aussie — this time in Chanel! — tell all.
With SXSW kicking off this Friday, we can't help but to be inspired by Free People's signature festival style in its March catalog. The brand took us to a land far away, to the exotic lands of Vietnam to be exact, showing us the country's most iconic landmarks and, of course, an array of pretty bohemian pieces we'd like to add to our Spring wardrobe, stat. Colorful embroidered tops, ethereal tunics, and floral-print dresses are all on our must-haves list. What's on yours? Before you click through the slideshow, read below for our easy festival styling tips.
- Instead of the usual pair of denim cutoffs, opt for a colored or printed version to show off your fashion prowess. Complete the look with an embroidered top and comfy colored sandals, and you're set for a day of dancing in the sun.
- A dress is the easiest way to look put together without actually having to do any work. We love the vintage vibe of this cap-sleeve floral dress. Simply finish off the look with layered necklaces or bracelets.
- No one will be able to deny your cool bohemian in a floaty tunic, like this beautiful embroidered top and shorts combo.
Jamie Chung was all smiles at an LA movie premiere last night, donning a playful ensemble fit for Spring. The brunette beauty tucked a white silk tank into colorful zigzag shorts, then layered on an ivory blazer. Her Casadei pumps added a touch of sophistication, while a purple clutch, matte orange nail polish, and minimal jewelry completed her sunny style. Take a cue from Jamie and pair a white tank and blazer over eye-catching bottoms, or winterize the look with a pair of pastel printed pants and suede ankle boots.
In anticipation of warmer weather to come, we're beginning to replace our heavy Winter-wear with a refreshing batch of bright prints and lighter hues. That said, one of our biggest swaps is trading out our black blazer for a white one. Designers like Stella McCartney and Phillip Lim showed them on their Spring runways and we can't wait to get on board with the trend. Yes, it might be a little jarring to store away your tried and true black blazer, but believe us when we say you won't regret it. To prove that point, we're showing you five different ways to wear this gorgeous IRO Alessia Brushed-Crepe Blazer ($475). You can always find a more affordable option, but we love this particular one for its slight ivory hue and perfectly tailored shape. Ready to make the swap?
