No makeup, no stylist, no professional photographer: that's the beauty of Rag & Bone's DIY Project, which recently enlisted Jourdan Dunn to shoot pictures of herself wearing the brand's jeans.
Armed with a digital camera, Dunn nodded to Rag & Bone's British roots and American spirit by taking some of the pictures in London and others in New York. Several shots prominently feature Dunn's backside, which she attributes to some of her cheeky friends.
"I had just moved into my new apartment in London and was hanging artwork that I'd recently purchased and, as I'm not the most handy person in the world, the process was really amusing," she said. "My friends kept telling me how great my bum looked in my Rag & Bone jeans so I put on a show."
Dunn joins a long list of models who have photographed themselves for the DIY Project, including Miranda Kerr, Karolina Kurkova, Candice Swanepoel, and Hanneli Mustaparta. A look at Dunn's self-portraits for the Fall 2012 campaign here, in the gallery.

The piece: Rag & Bone Striped Egg Coat
The investment: $995
Why it's worth it: This coat is downtown cool personified. It is the piece you'll return to occasion after occasion to look cool, without ever looking like you tried. We love the perfect borrowed-from-the-boys shape and the riff on classic stripes, giving it enough personality to shape basic jeans and t-shirts without making too much of a statement that we fear it's too flashy or that it won't last past this season (because, really when do stripes ever go out of style?). Rest assured, this is a find that would last you well beyond this Fall, Winter, and early Spring this year and the next. We suspect it'll become one of those great vintage pieces a very lucky daughter one day inherits — and what's a better testament to a worthy investment piece than that?

Bartenders serving ice-cold Peroni, a live DJ set by Thom Yorke, and the biggest fleet of street style paparazzo seen yet this fashion week: the Rag & Bone show generated some serious heat (or maybe that was the lack of air conditioning in the venue?), and that was before the first look even came out the gate.
Excitement aside, there is something about a Rag & Bone show that always feels intrinsically New York, despite designers Marcus Wainwright's and David Neville's deep British roots. That spirit was in full effect for Spring 2013, with a hodgepodge of influences — off-road racing, motocross, prep, sport, and military — expertly layered in the very embodiment of downtown cool.
Silhouettes were ample: moto jackets came oversized, miniskirts flared, vests boxy. And while there was nary a print to be found, fabrics were textural in the form of striped seersucker, crackled leather, and crocheted lace — the latter of which peeked out from beneath several hems.
It was a hot and sticky day at Rag & Bone's Spring '13 show, but David Neville and Marcus Wainwright did everything to keep their patrons happy, supplying everyone with ice cream or an ice-cold beer in hand — and deejaying from Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich. But it wasn't the extras that got us going; Neville and Wainwright captured the crowd's undivided attention with an explosion of modern, sportif greatness. Denim, striped or adorned with sweet, feminine lace, tempered leather shorts, vests, and pants. Silky and crisp tops were paired with long relaxed shorts or biker pants honing in on the designers' athletic mood. Almost every look was topped off with great outerwear — whether worn alone à la Karlie Kloss's closing coral poncho number or with separates — ranging from structured black satin trench coats to quilted aviator jackets, and the highlight of the evening, a neon-green bomber sure to make it on every girl's Spring wish list.
- Trends: Sporty details, denim, leather, fit and flare dresses.
- Colors: White, denim, bright blue, coral, neon green.
- Key Piece: The slick neon-green bomber will be on everyone's Spring must-have list.
- Accessories: Platform wedges, stacked slingback sandals, leather clutches, canvas satchel bags, sporty sunglasses.
- Who Should Wear It: Any girl craving a little urban cool in their life, as witnessed by front-row attendees like Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hailee Steinfeld, Gabrielle Union, and Christy Turlington.

In honor of the US Open Tennis Championships, which started in New York on Monday, Vogue asked designers including Pamela Love, Peter Som, and Eddie Borgo to design tennis balls with elements of their signature motifs. The one-of-a-kind balls are decorated with everything from cloth flowers to rhinestones, lace, leather, and aggressive metal studs. Love shot an arrow through her design ("I have four arrow tattoos, so I thought, why not?" she says), while Som's sparkly entry takes inspiration from a diamond tennis bracelet. Dana Lorenz's Fenton ball, with brass chains and pearls, takes inspiration from Christian Lacroix and the glamorous supermodels of the '90s. A selection of our favorites from the project here in the gallery.

Colored denim is definitely the jean du jour, so for today's Ways to Wear, we styled a pair of bright yellow Rag & Bone jeans three chic ways. We've spotted colored denim on some of our favorite style setters, like Rachel Bilson and Zoe Saldana, and seen this vibrant canary hue grace the runways at Proenza Schouler and Jason Wu — now we're heading to Barneys New York in Beverly Hills to try out the trend for ourselves. Whether you're looking for the perfect transitional outfit or feeling daring enough to try bright on bright, we hope these outfits inspire you to scoop up some colored denim for your own look now.
