The Best In London Fashion Week Street Style

For years now, the sidewalks outside of fashion week have been as heavily documented and critiqued as the clothes up on the runway. There’s a veritable industry now, of fashion bloggers, online personalities and charming crazies who now operate front and center when it comes to fashion week. And why not? Style trickles up as much as it trickles down, with designers pulling looks and inspiration from what they see around the city.

But not everybody’s happy about it. Take fashion writer Susie Menkes, who in this past week’s T magazine, railed against the ubiquitousness of the street scene. “There is a genuine difference between the stylish and the showoffs,” she notes, alluding that there are far more of the latter than the former in fashion right now. The actual fashion shows almost seem beside the point. “There is something ridiculous about the self-aggrandizement of some online arbiters who go against the mantra that I was taught in my earlier days as a fashion journalist. ‘It isn’t good because you like it; you like it because it’s good.’” Amen to that, but still, isn’t it fun to see what everyone’s preened themselves into now?

You — Yes, You! — Could Top Vanity Fair‘s Best Dressed List

Vanity Fair Best Dressed
Jessica landed the top honor on the annual list. Read More »

Because I was a weird kid, I’ve been reading Vanity Fair since I was, like, 14. There’s nothing I enjoy more than long-form stories about society murders, celebrity addicts and presidential affairs. Every year, Vanity Fair also comes up with a best-dressed list, chock full of names of socialites, French nobility and a gallimaufry of minor European royalty. Usually I don’t know more than a few of the names on the list, and couldn’t even begin to imagine the clothing budgets these people must have.

But this year, VF is making things a bit more democratic. In a ploy to seem relevant, the aged magazine is opening its Best Dressed competition to the public. Nan Kempner is rolling over in her extra-small couture grave. Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Nikki Reed’s Leather-Look Jeans And Leopard Sweater

Nikki Reed loves herself a good pair of waxed black jeans. So do I, my friend, so do I. They have the look of leather without the gratuitous animal cruelty (I make up for that with a pair of leather boots, naturally) or the annoying squeaking sound when your legs inevitably rub together. Paired with an abstract leopard print sweater in monochromes and a cool silver bar ring, you’ll look every bit the city slicker, and at a reasonable price to boot. Find out where to snag Nikki’s look, after the jump… Keep reading »

Where Authenticity In Street Style Dies, Shameless Corporate Promotion Lives

Melbourne Street Style
Perhaps there's a shred of integrity to be found all the way in Australia. Read More »

When the term “street style” was first coined, it was the domain of the unstudied, the unstaged, the stylist or editor or blogger wearing an outfit that she had purchased and put together herself. Candid street style at its heart and in its purpose was refreshingly free of the business element that defines much, if not all, of the fashion world — nobody was being paid, sponsored, or otherwise compensated for wearing a certain article by a certain designer or brand. It was natural, honest, and not ruled by celebrity, and it wasn’t about who was wearing what; it was about how they were wearing it, and with what. It was new and inspiring, the idea that any girl could go swanning about a major city in a top from H&M and thrifted pants by Gucci and a vintage hat via her grandmother’s closet and be photographed (provided she be thin and attractive enough to draw the eye, which is of course the vulgar truth of fashion) with a flashy expensive camera by a well-dressed perfect stranger with a business card and a .com web address and find herself immortalized on the web the very next day.
