Just because fashion editors are at the tippy-top of the new style food chain, watch as the newest and latest looks stroll down the runway and claim fashion is always “individual,” doesn’t mean they don’t jump on trend bandwagons like the rest of us. Want proof? Street style blog Streetpeeper witnessed so many Christopher Kane tops (both the high-end line and the Topshop versions!) this past London Fashion Week, he was moved to do some hilarious Photoshopping, above. Fashion folk sure are loving their Christopher Kane—as is Rihanna. [Streetpeeper] Keep reading »
Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
So the Fashion Police have a bone to pick with Rachel Bilson, seen here attending the Salvatore Ferragamo fashion show in Milan, asking what’s up with this “funky dress” and dissing her “lace gloves.” Here’s where we stand on the matter: Bilson is a total hottie who can get away with fashion murder, and we think it’s refreshing to see a well-tailored suit that shows off her figure in a more subtle way, as opposed to the usual starlet in flashy strapless bondage dress look. The gloves are actually part of the sheer shirt she’s wearing underneath, and it looks edgy and modern to let longish shirt sleeves peep out from a jacket. In short, back off you prosecutors, this woman is innocent. Keep reading »

From Alexander Wang to Marc by Marc Jacobs, something rather odd happened on the spring 2010 runways during Fashion Week: Sweatpants became cool again. Whether we’re talking fleecy material dresses or actual sweats, they were everywhere and looked much more fashionable and much less Juicy Couture. As lovers of cool-looking comfort clothes, we fully approve of this move towards clothing that allow us to breathe just a little. [CBS News] Keep reading »

While designers in New York and London were sculpting elaborate hairdos this year at Fashion Week, Marni went the opposite route by covering it all up—just goes to show you that you that sometimes revealing less is sexier. At the designer’s summer 2010 runway show in Milan, models sported bright, printed headscarves and chunky jewelry, giving off a jet-set vibe that we’re dying to try out ourselves. While it’s probably not a look you can wear to the office (unless you have a casual/stylish work zone like The Frisky does!), a Marni-inspired headscarf style would be great for weekend wear (bring on the large sunglasses) or going out (we’re thinking skinny jeans, a clutch, and some vintage jewelry).
