Haley Bennett Is a New Actress Who Just Got a Huge Fashion Honor

Haley Bennett just attended The Girl on the Train premiere in an Altuzarra design that’s fresh off the runway. And though we’d expect a move like that from an on-the-rise star who’s embracing the spotlight, she’s not the only one already in Spring 2017. Kim and Kourtney Kardashian played dress up in Balmain right after the collection’s debut, Cate Blanchett already wore a Gucci number, …

Stella McCartney Turned the Classic Button-Down Upside Down and All Around

If there’s one thing Stella McCartney has perfected, it is the art of the slouch. So when we say she sent button-downs, track suits, and denim down her Spring runway, don’t expect the ordinary. Stella did it her way, which starts with eco-friendly production. This season’s suede, jersey, and woven fabrics are organic, and you’d know it by looking at them since they’re printed with …

A Brief History of Chanel's Most Over-the-Top Fashion Show Sets

We know this much to be true: Karl Lagerfeld is a stickler for detail. His intricate Chanel designs take center stage during the house’s many fashion shows during any given year. Throughout his over-30-year reign at Chanel, Karl has taken the grand display of clothing one step further by creating a whole world in which to showcase his designs. His latest endeavor, Chanel’s Haute Couture …

Once You Set Eyes on Balenciaga's Spandex Boot Pants, You Can't Look Away

When Vetements’s Demna Gvasalia took the helm at Balenciaga last season, he didn’t offer us a new perspective on street style, he won us over. It’s only now, on the Spring 2017 runways, that Gvasalia’s peers are experimenting with the ideas he set in motion: a coat pulled off the shoulders so the arms lock in place and bags so oversize, it’s hard to imagine …

No One Clapped For the Dior Show at Paris Fashion Week – They Full-On Cheered

Maria Grazia Chiuri is the first female to take on the role of creative director at Dior. She could have played it cool, touching on the house’s signature notes, creating dresses that flatter the figure but still withhold structure. Instead, she started a revolution. It wasn’t just the graphic tee that read “We should all be feminists.” If anything, that new street-style top is just …

Chloé Bags? Psh, You'll Be Dressed in Chloé Head-to-Toe Come Spring

Editors flock to every Chloé show ready to Snapchat, or these days Boomerang, the new bag. Because Chloé bags — the Faye, the Marcie, the Jane — have become more than It-items, they are essentials. The Spring 2017 presentation in Paris was no different. Plenty of women were captured by the daintiness of the tiniest pouch, which was essentially just a gold bracelet extended — …

Gigi Hadid and Naomi Campbell Just Walked in the Sexiest Show at Milan Fashion Week

The lights above the Versace runway were shaped into a “V,” and that’s how we knew the Spring 2017 collection would be signature Donatella. “This show is for women taking chances. Take the leap,” were the words that echoed over a bumping beat (an exclusive track written by Violet & Photonz) as models stormed the catwalk. We were right: the new line is as sexy …

Gucci's Spring Runway Show Was the Game of Dress-Up You Used to Dream About

Gucci designer Alessandro Michele makes clothes that mystify. Of course, his well-considered sets — this time a misty room lit up in hot pink and decorated with a shimmering curtain of beads — play into the theme. But Michele enchants showgoers with a little help from his friends. For Spring 2017, he invited muses Soko and Dakota Johnson to sit front row and tapped Florence …

Kate Middleton's About to Shop These 10 Runway Looks For Spring

It isn’t often Kate Middleton tries out a new designer. After all, she remains loyal to so many of her favorite brands that create tailored coats and day dresses to wear underneath. While many of them are British labels, Kate’s been tapping American fashion houses as of late, Tory Burch, Altuzarra, and Banana Republic included. Plus, Jenny Packham, her go-to for eveningwear, debuts her collections …

Marc Jacobs Dreamed Up a Wild Runway Show – and Every Supermodel Came Through

Marc Jacobs need not stage his runway show on the street or accompanied by a live band. Instead he prefers to invite the industry into his wildest dreams on the last day of New York Fashion Week. This season was set at the Hammerstein Ballroom, where the theater was intimate and dark, decorated with 1,500 floating lights. It was 2 p.m. though, so we were …
