These Pregnant Models Looked So Beautiful At Lingerie Fashion Week

Lingerie brand You! specializes in maternity and nursing bras and underwear that are both stylish and comfortable. When designer and company founder Uyo Okebie-­Eichelberger planned her Spring/Summer 2014 show at Lingerie Fashion Week, she knew exactly what type of models she wanted to send down the catwalk: pregnant ones, in all their glowing, feminine, big-bellied glory. It’s so refreshing to see body diversity on the catwalk, isn’t it? After the jump, a couple more stunning photos from this unconventional fashion show! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

FAR OUT!

This is a short glimpse at 1971 Yves St. Laurent fashion show in Paris for which St. Laurent, who was wildly ahead of his time in most respects, booked the Jean-Claude Vannier’s psych rock band L’efant Assassin des Mouches to keep time for the runway models. Vannier was also known as one of Serge Gainsbourg’s most successful collaborators. I love the druggy, dreamy look and feel of this clip. [YouTube]

The Best Dressed At Haute Couture Week (Days 1 & 2)

We have now entered day two of the prestigious Paris Haute Couture Week, the spark that lights the fuse of fashion weeks to follow. Yesterday was Atelier Versace (for the first time since 2004!), Alexis Mabille, Christian Dior, and Giambattista Valli, among others. This morning, not one, but two Chanel shows took place, followed by Giorgio Armani Privé and Givenchy later in the day. Of course, it’s my long-standing dream to attend just one of these breathtaking ceremonies, but for the time being I’m forced to spectate from the sidelines. Couture Week brings out some of the biggest and brightest names in street style, and I’ll be damned if they weren’t dressed to the nines. The biggest turnout comes from models, actresses, superstars, and socialites, who no doubt have the means to show up the girls actually on the runway, but they tend to skew fairly casual for these festivities. Here are my choice looks from the past two days; expect another feature covering the next two!

The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 27 Favorite Looks From Day One

I love fashion, but the Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy. These collections celebrate fashion as high art, and present frothy, impossibly constructed delectable creations that make grown women salivate. Of course, couture gowns cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands, so we won’t be buying one anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look. The first day of couture week featured shows from Giambattista Valli, Christian Dior (currently helmed by Bill Gaytten), Chanel, Versace, and Alexis Mabille — and they did not disappoint. Click to see some of our favorite looks from the first crop of shows.

Ooh Baby, It’s Cold On This Runway

God bless Vivienne Westwood: Her Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show put a chill on the faces of the poor male models sent down the runway. The boys were forced to wear fake — and in some cases, real — icicle beards. The look was apparently an homage to British naturalist David Attenborough and his documentary “Frozen Planet.” Either way, those are some deliciously frosty snowmen. [Telegraph UK]
