  • Louis Vuitton Does the '90s

      From the chokers at Dior to the crop tops at Versace, this Paris Fashion Week is feeling very Beverly Hills 90210. Nicolas Ghesquiere kept the ’90s era alive by showing wallet chains on the Louis Vuitton runway. The designer sent models like Arizona skater Natalie Westling and Orange County student Shelby Hayes down the runway at the Louvre Museum with silver chains dangling from their belt loops. ...

  • 5 Secret Things From Today's Chanel Show

    Anyone can see the livestream, but to be a true fashion insider,  check out these invite-only details from today’s space-themed show. 1. The “Astronauts” Had Protection When the Chanel rocket ship blasted off in the Grand Palais, it came with flames, sparks, and tons of smoke. Models closest to the launch site put on huge reflective sunglasses—like ski visors but chicer—to shield their eyes from the glare (while still looking amazing.) 2. ...

  • Maisie Williams is the Star of the Miu Miu Show

    Is Maisie Williams the most famous person at Paris Fashion Week? The French teenagers camped outside Miu Miu seemed to think so. Meanwhile on the runway, Kendall Jenner walked the show with barely-there bleached eyebrows, and other models wore giant faux-fur hats and boots that recalled “The Val Party” from Clueless and also Monsters Inc.

  • Rihanna's Fenty x Puma Show Brings out the Stars

    Models walk the runway at the Fenty X Puma by Rihanna Autumn Winter 2017 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week on March 6, 2017 in Paris, France. “I’m going to get in trouble,” whispered Cara Delevingne to Nick Jonas.

  • Valentino is Loving Ruth Negga

    Is Paris Fashion Week just an extension of the Oscars? At Valentino, all signs point to ‘oui.’ Mere weeks after Best Actress nominee Ruth Negga debuted a custom red gown from the classic fashion house, seven other scarlet dresses hit the Valentino catwalk, each with the high necks, long sleeves, and romantic (read: complicated, but still somehow cool) embroidery stitched at the waists, hems, and collars.  Models also wore similar makeup to the movie star, with deep red lips and kohl-etched eyes. ...

  • Stella McCartney Closed Her Show With a George Michael Dance Party

    At Stella McCartney’s fashion show, the famously vegan designer sent 35 models down the catwalk in plaids, checks, and cruelty-free knitwear. There were also horse prints taken from George Stubbs, the famous 18th century British painter. The design details gave way McCartney’s finale, an a capella concert for guests like Salma Hayek and Pamela Anderson.

  • Céline Goes Grocery Shopping

    In 2014, Chanel staged their fall runway in a supermarket, complete with branded candy, carts, and even cleaning supplies. Today, Céline mirrored the checkout line chic style in the form of a huge cashmere shawl. Draped across model Liya Kebede, it looked pretty normal—but laid out backstage, it was clearly a printed grocery flier for sausages (about $6.14), sticky toffee pudding (about $2.50), and macaroni & cheese ($4.91). ...

  • 75-Year-Old Vivienne Westwood Walks in Her Own Show

    Vivienne Westwood walked in her own fashion show, because she is a Dame of the British Empire, a counter culture legend, and 75 years old. Among those who cheered her on were Rita Ora (“I’m obsessed with her because I’m obsessed with punk, and she basically made punk happen”) and Pamela Anderson, a longtime friend of the fellow fashion activist. “We actually met because we were both petitioning for [political prisoner] Leonard Pelletier’s clemency,” Anderson told us before the show.

  • Rihanna Wears the New Dior Before the Models Do

    Here’s how you know Rihanna is the Queen of Paris:

  • Kanye West’s Creative Director, Virgil Abloh, Makes the Next Stan Smiths

    Virgil Abloh might be the most famous creative director in the United States. After Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin walked down the runway — it was covered with leaves and dotted with real hanging birch trees — we zoomed backstage behind Alicia Keys (who pronounced the filmy dresses and plaid suits “incredible”) to ask about the future. Before Bella Hadid came down the catwalk, there was a lecture on the creative process blaring through the speakers.

  • Rick Owens Shows a Sweatshirt Burka on the Runway

    “I’ve always thought of runway shows as contemporary ceremonies,” Owens says, referencing religious cultures like Ancient Egypt (for the giant animal ears), Greek Orthodoxy (for the priest hats). “I always say, if I didn’t wear me, I’d wear Rick,” Karan told us from the front row.

  • Luka Sabbat’s Clothing Line Debuts Next Week

    Luka Sabbat attends The Gap is Open at 393 Broadway on September 8, 2016 in New York City. Gigi and Bella Hadid weren’t the only family team backstage at H&M. There was also Luka Sabbat, aka “the coolest teenager on the internet,” and his mom, Jessica Romer, a caterer who used to work with Dior. Sabbat’s girlfriend, Adriana Mora, a model who joined him on Dolce & Gabbana’s runway last week, was there, too.

  • After Dries Van Noten, Amber Valletta Speaks on Age Diversity

    As models like Candice Huffine and Ashley Graham hit the Prabal Gurung catwalk, they represent the beauty (and purchasing power!) of larger-size women. A celebration of his 100th fashion show (!), the Belgian designer remixed his most memorable prints, then sent former muses such as Kirsten Owen (age 46), Carolyn Murphy (age 42), Liya Kebede (age 39), and Kristina de Coninck, a favorite from his very first show in the ’80s.

  • Bella Hadid Has Another Forced Run-in With Ex-Boyfriend the Weeknd at H&M Show

    H&M has great clothes, gratifying prices, and a nifty line of makeup. They’ve also got a tabloid strategy…at least if their Paris fashion show on March 1st is any indication.

  • Watch the H&M Runway Show Live from Paris That You Can Shop Right Now

    See-now-buy-now is fun in theory, but if you can’t afford the clothes, it’s not actually that useful. Enter H&M, whose Paris runway will hit stores and HM.com the second it struts down the runway…with prices that don’t rival your rent. “Anything that brings us closer to our customers and makes fashion even more accessible is very positive,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Head of Design and Creative Director. Press play on the livestream at HM.com on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. EST, and see what she means. ...

    Women’s Marchers, don’t stash your pussy hats just yet. They’ve officially become a fashion trend.

  • This Season, the Versace Woman Wears Her Strength on Her Sleeve

    “The Versace woman is just 100% hot,” said Adwoah Aboah before Friday’s show in Milan. For Fall 2017, the Versace woman is also monogrammed, stilettoed, and sporting Manic Panic hair extensions in neon streaks of orange, blue, red, and canary yellow. The effect was haute couture jabs Hot Topic, and it was actually superfun.

  • The Devil Wears Crocheted Bikini Tops

    Hailey Baldwin didn’t walk today’s Prada show, but her influence was still weirdly felt on the runway. That’s because 10 models wore crocheted bikinis during today’s show, evoking Baldwin’s infamous swimsuit shots with Justin Bieber. Of course, knit swimwear isn’t just clickbait — it’s a classic ’70s style that riffs on rock festivals and beach communes. But thanks to Instagram’s steady takeover of the human psyche, it’s where our minds immediately zoomed. Alas, these tops are for fall 2017, which means you might not be able to get them until the tail end of beach season in August. ...

  • Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid Just Walked in the 'Trashiest' Runway Show

    Kendall Jenner walks the Moschino Fall/Winter 2017 show in Milan on Feb. 23. Carrie Bradshaw had put a bird on her head, but Kendall Jenner just beat her: She opened the Moschino show wearing a UPS crate as a hat.
