Monochromatic dressing (that is, wearing one color head to toe) is all the rage right now, and here are three celebrities to show us how it's done in various hues. Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel chose a crisp all-white ensemble during her recent travels, Girls actress Zosia Mamet opted for a cobalt pairing — a silky button-down with high-waist trousers, both by Honor — at the premiere of The Company You Keep in NYC, and Karolina Kurkova showed off her style chops in a red shorts suit at a Moncler event in Miami Beach. What's great about going monochromatic is that it takes the guessing game out of getting dressed. You pick one color you love and stick with it — easy enough, right? But despite it being a huge Spring trend, would you rock a monochromatic ensemble like these celebs did? Share your thoughts with us below.

The Face judges, Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova, stopped by the SiriusXM Studios in NYC both looking impeccable in splashes of white. Coco matched up a structural white blazer with black leather pants, while Karolina opted to go all white in a sleek pantsuit, then added a dash of color via yellow pumps. Both models turned up the volume on polish, but Coco followed the black and white colorblocking trend and Karolina showed us that Winter white can be so damn chic. This is going to be one tough battle, but we're leaving it in your hands, who should win this faceoff?
We're all about great dresses and bare legs in Spring and Summer — but when it's 30 degrees with a major snowstorm on the way, going without tights is a serious fashion risk (no matter how good your outfit looks without them). Don't get us wrong, we adore everything about Karolina Kurkova's latest NYC ensemble, but we couldn't help but think: she must be cold. The supermodel took care to cover up her top-half with a black infinity scarf and a gorgeous gray coat, but then chose to leave her legs bare. Even if you're bundled up on top and you've got a car waiting at the curb, it takes a little (or a lot) of courage to brave the cold with nothing on your stems. We know, she certainly didn't look like she was freezing, but a pair of black tights would have totally worked with her ensemble. This begs the question: would you sacrifice comfort for style like Karolina did this morning? Weigh in below, then leave a comment with your thoughts.
Last night's The Face premiere drew some of fashion's most recognizable model faces to the red carpet, including the show's "mentors" Coco Rocha, Karolina Kurkova, Naomi Campbell, and Crystal Renn. Fashion reporter Allison McNamara caught up with Coco and Karolina about what it really takes to be a supermodel, how competitive the whole process really was, and more. Click play to see what The Face beauties had to say — and don't forget to tune into the show's premiere on Feb. 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Oxygen.
Supermodels and celebrities including Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova, Brad Goreski, and Tyson Beckford celebrated the premiere of Oxygen's new reality series The Face last night in NYC. The show features major models, including Naomi, Karolina, and Coco Rocha, guiding two dozen young hopefuls toward reaching their dreams. It was apt timing for the debut of the series, with New York Fashion Week kicking off tomorrow.
Last night, Naomi chose Alaïa, Coco went for a sheer Emilio Pucci gown, and Karolina showed off her curves in a Dimitri fringed dress. The men in attendance also brought their style game. Tyson Beckford, Brad Goreski, designer Zac Posen, and The Face's Nigel Barker all suited up for the occasion. The new show doesn't air on Oxygen until next Tuesday, but in the meantime, the first episode of The Face is available online now.
At last night's The Face premiere in NYC, the red carpet might as well have been a catwalk. The show
"mentors," including industry heavyweights like Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha, and Crystal Renn (who could have very well been giving a master class in runway form as they posed for cameras and air-kissed down the arrivals), glammed up to promote their new show — and showcase their own eventwear M.O. Naomi went the elegant, albeit sexy, route in a body-hugging Alaïa gown, while Coco Rocha played the more dramatic angle in a sheer Emilio Pucci gown. As for Karolina, the leggy blonde opted for a flirty, brilliant blue, fringed Dimitri dress — which proved a perfect option for showing off her stems. Step inside to see the rest of the glamorous arrivals face off — including an appearance from Victoria's Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo — then vote for the evening's best-dressed supermodel.
The model-spotting of Fashion Week is just kicking off in New York today, but last night four of our favorites were out and about. Celebrating the premiere of their new show, The Face, Karolina Kurkova, Naomi Campbell, and Coco Rocha stepped out sporting three completely different looks. Karolina opted for frosted blue shadow and brushed out waves; Naomi paired her heavy fringe with a sexy smoky eye; and Coco wore a faux '20s-style bob and tomato red lipstick. Over in Australia, Miranda Kerr walked in the David Jones fashion show, but stopped for a few snaps with heavy apricot blush and a mussy topknot. All four ladies had a range of styles, but whose did you like best?
Today the countdown begins to New York Fashion Week, the dizzying time full of groundbreaking fashion, fun model moments, and, of course, gorgeous clothes! So what are we most excited for come Thursday? Watch and see our editors, style director, and fashion host have a bicoastal conversation about why they can't wait for the week to start!
