The Fall campaigns are dropping left and right, and today we were blown away by the new David Sims-lensed images for McQ Alexander McQueen. Sarah Burton and co. tapped up-and-coming models April Tiplady (who has appeared in recent editorials in Paris Vogue and Love) and Tom Gaskin, as well as Crystal Castles frontwoman Alice Glass to channel the collection‘s punky theme. More so than the clothes themselves, it was the killer cornrows—not to mention the models’ fly-girl-worthy hoop earrings—that really caught our attention here. Could allover braids be having a post-Beyoncé moment? We also clocked them on Tricia, the tattooed street rat from our favorite new series, Orange Is the New Black.
Here at Style.com, we live for any form of a Daria Werbowy sighting, and have been ogling her new August cover of Paris Vogue (which hits newsstands on the 19th) since it leaked earlier today. The supermodel was shot by David Sims—who she recently worked with on the Salvatore Ferragamo Fall ’13 campaign—for the French publication’s London-themed issue. Sporting nothing but a snug Ralph Lauren military jacket, Werbowy looks naturally gorgeous with artfully mussed tresses, natural makeup, and a rather conspicuous nose ring. The piercing has drifted in and out of style over the past few years (recall the door-knocker-size septum hoops from Givenchy’s Spring ’12 couture collection), but Werbowy’s flawless visage is the most convincing argument for the trend we’ve seen in a while.
