That’s (Always) A Lot Of Look: Helena Bonham Carter

This is what Helena Bonham Carter (Miss Carter if you're nasty) wore to go shopping for a new pair of glasses in London the other day: a steampunk warrior princess outfit, candy bead necklace, and an oversized bow clipped into wild wavy hair. Never stop doing you, Helena. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]…

Love It Or Leave It: Jessica Alba In Double Neon

Jessica Alba was snapped leaving a London restaurant with a friend this week, and her trendy outfit caught my eye. She's rocking a neon green T-shirt and a neon orange satchel, completing the outfit with more '80s-inspired pieces like pointy flats and a black vest. So, what do you think of this look? Is it…

Check Out The Awesome Street Style In Melbourne, Australia

Melbourne's Fashion Week is on right now, but what's happening on the streets is just as interesting as the catwalk. Maybe it's because Australia's a bit more isolated from the rest of the fashion world, but the street style in Melbourne is really on point. We could all learn a thing or two from these…

The Best Dressed At NYFW: The Attendees

This week, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week came to a close. In many ways, our fashion future has been foretold — what we saw on runways this past week will directly influence what we wear next fall and winter, whether we purchase the actual designer ready to wear (fat chance) or H&M's take on the trends. It'…

Huh? Long-Sleeve Shirts As Skirts?

We're all for multi-functional fashion, but this new trend that one of our favorite street style sites, Chictopia, is advocating makes us scratch our heads. According to the site, the blogosphere is going crazy for long-sleeve shirts transformed into skirts without any sewing. The collar becomes the waistband, and the sleeves are tied around the…

Photobooth Flashback

Before the advent of the internet or street style blogs, photographer Frank Oscar Larson was taking candid pictures of life in New York City. I love how this shot from 1954 perfectly captures the fashion of the day, but also the moment of primping and excitement that always precedes stepping into a photobooth -- whether…

Former “Lucky” Column Inspires New Website

You might have noticed something different about the December issue of Lucky magazine. Creative director Andrea Linnett's illustrated "Fashion Babble" column was missing from the last page. The column hasn't died—it's just moved. Linnett has revived the former fashion story on a new site called I Want to Be Her!, where she feature…

Chic On The Street: Sleek & Severe In Taipei

We like how Fang's sleek and severe look is reflected in her demeanor. We might have suggested a belt for anyone else in this getup, but it would be wrong to alter Fang's dramatic statement. This 28-year-old manages Bodymap, a Taiwanese clothing line with stores all over Taipei. All her clothes are from there.

Chic On The Street: Classic Black And White

Audrey Hepburn-inspired outfits never get old with us. Just get a load of Sasha Peters, 22, looking very much the updated classic in L.A.'s SIlver Lake neighborhood. Sasha, currently working at Kiki de Montparnasse and studying Shakespeare, channels "Roman Holiday" in head-to-toe vintage from stores in L.A. and New York. The…

Chic On The Street: Pulled-Together Punk

We peeped Paige Cano, 19, on Venice Beach and loved the combo of don't-give-a-damn grunge paired with pretty hair. Paige is rocking a T-shirt from a Dystopia show with thrift store jeans and pumps "borrowed from a friend."…

Chic On The Street: Thrifty Lady

We find Angelica Martinez perfect for this Venice Beach setting—a tough chick with a happy flair for color. And she got everything from "either the thrift store or the 99-cent store." She also laughed and added that the shades were found in a bar. Finders, keepers!

Chic On The Street: Lovely Layers

We couldn't help but notice sleek yet punchy Akiko Kishimoto, 29, behind the counter at an authentically Japanese restaurant in Cusco, Peru. Love that layering, and that punchy tartan pattern on her tights. This Tokyo transplant says the entire ensemble is from vintage stores, bought in Tokyo two years ago.

Chic On The Street: “Gossip Girl” Gone Nice

We think we've found the kinder, gentler Jenny Humphrey in Singapore. And just to clarify—we approve. Samantha See (no relation), 21, was spotted on Orchard Road in Singapore in a military-inspired shirt dress from Kuala Lumpur, accidentally yet symmetrically ripped black tights and the coolest rain sandals ever. xoxo, The Frisky…

Chic On The Street: Sailor Stripes

We spied Maria Stanley queuing for coffee at Intellgentsia in L.A.'s Silver Lake hood. Since we kinda want to copy her stripey and effortlessly chic thing, we had to ask this fashion designer where she got her outfit. Maria, 22, got her top at Urban Outfitters, sandals from Marc Jacobs, shades from H&M, and the…

This Is What An Off-Duty Flight Attendant Looks Like (Cute!)

Think "flight attendant" and images of nude stockings, nylon blazers, and straight skirts that border on matronly probably come to mind. We're obsessed, however, with Asako Itono, a flight attendant for Emirates Airlines, who was caught in her off-duty uniform on the streets of NYC. Girl has got some awesome indie style, mixing rare piece…

Check This Out: Inside The Brains Of Fashion Kids Blog

Part of the genius of street style and fashion photo blogs is that the picture is the story. What the person is wearing should provoke your imagination. Still, wouldn't it be cool if you did know everything about that white-haired chick on Jak & Jil, or one of the many tweed-suited men on The…
