Keira Knightley Rarely Wears a Dress Without This 1 Little Detail

Award season brings many red carpets and plenty of standout looks we can’t stop buzzing about. One thing we can always be sure of is that Keira Knightley will show up in a feminine, voluminous dress. The actress consistently taps her favorite fashion houses for unmissable pieces. She chooses Valentino when she’s in the mood for embroidery and British label Erdem for romantic florals. In …

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 …

14 Spring Runway Looks With Michelle Obama's Name on Them

Michelle Obama might be a busy woman, but she’s definitely got time to shop. In fact, the FLOTUS knows the importance of power dressing. That doesn’t just mean she’s got the right suits for business affairs or appropriately modest gowns for state dinners. Michelle also dresses based on her location. When she’s in London, she chooses designers like Mary Katrantzou, Preen, and Peter Pilotto, who …

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 …

You're About to Fall in Love With Valentino's Spring '17 Lineup

Valentino ushered in a new era with Pierpaolo Piccioli’s first show as sole creative director of the label, though, admittedly, the Spring ’17 lineup looks a lot like the Valentino we already know. Romance is delivered in contemporary shapes and details, like the lace-up flats and micro-mini crossbody bags swung over evening wear. Dresses cut in the same peasant silhouettes with high necks and skirts …

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 — …

Crazy, but True, Prada Will Make You Want to Wear Feathers For Spring

Miuccia Prada has a way of even making feathers seem charming. Prada’s Spring ’17 lineup was trimmed with marabou hems and finished with feathered shoes and featured feathered crop tops layered over printed blouses. The effect is a tad quirky, yes, but elevated, evolved even; it’s not done for the sake of being ostentatious. You wouldn’t have to be a party girl to wear these …
