Serious question: does Karl Lagerfeld owe his notoriety more to his fashion design prowess or his very polarizing public persona? I’d say it’s a toss-up, but regardless, as far as Fashion People Fame Levels go, he ranks at the top of the charts. The delightfully bizarre Roberto Cavalli may be finding himself slightly envious of Karl’s larger-than-life media presence, because the eccentric Italian designer is throwing some major shade at the Chanel head honcho. He said of Lagerfeld in a recent interview, “Just because you are an artist you don’t have to dress like that. … He looks ridiculous.”

Interestingly, I don’t think they dress all that differently aside from the obvious disparity, which is that Roberto (at left) invariably appears to have bathed in a vat of self-tanner while Karl is pretty much white all over. Also, the former is rarely spotted in a fully-buttoned shirt. As you do! Listen, I say we settle the score with a fashion face-off… and I don’t mean Chanel vs. Cavalli. Let’s go, boys! (This will never happen.) [StyleBistro]

You’ve got great style, sure, but have you made the cut of Time magazine’s list of most influential style icons? If not, that’s okay — only 100 designers, brands, models and muses were selected. The mag curated the list going back to its start in 1923. Some of the choice names?

Inveterate designers like Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli and Vivienne Westwood. But while high fashion dominated, Sara Blakely, the woman who founded the shapewear line Spanx, also made the list.

Who didn’t? None of young Hollywood’s crop of fashion faces, like Blake Lively and Mila Kunis. It remains to be seen if their fashion influence will last.

Check out the full list after the jump! [Time]

Fashion Week Breakdown: The Wild Bunch

Fall fashion shows — highlighting Spring 2012 collections — continue on throughout Europe. And as they slowly wind down, we’ve noticed a bunch of designers who are truly pushing the boundaries of what Ready-to-Wear means. European designers like Ann Demeulemeester and Gareth Pugh aren’t staying safely within the confines of traditional sportswear, but instead are pushing their own unique perspective. Take a look at our gallery and check out some of the best more out-there looks.

 

 

Balls To The Wall For Balmain

Watch Video

Oh, to be Abby Lee Kershaw, the sometimes-model and blonde muse for this Balmain Spring 2012 collection video. Watch her frolic and run with her Our Mountain bandmates — one of whom happens to be her very attractive boyfriend Matthew Hutchinson. Watch her smile and swing around bus stop poles wearing thousands of dollars in high end fashions. And yes, watch as she happily enjoys the sunset over the city, hand in hand with her special man. It’s enough to make you gag ponies and sprinkles. [FashionIndie]

Emma Watson Is The Latest Celeb Turned Designer

Now that the “Harry Potter” kids no longer have a bazillion dollar franchise to support, Emma Watson has got some free time, and it seems she’s opted to pick up some work as a fashion designer. No longer content to merely serve as a model/muse for Burberry, Watson is said to be launching her own line, and has been taking cutting, sewing and design classes, presumably at Brown University’s sister school, RISD. According to an unnamed source, “Emma wants to challenge herself creatively. She’s obsessed with art at the moment She’s already designed a line of T-shirts and wants to expand her skills to create bespoke evening wear.” So she’ll join Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and Avril Lavigne, among others, as model/actress/muse/designer. Phew. That’s a long resume. [ONTD] Keep reading »
