Here at Style.com, we’re already knee-deep in fashion month prep. In addition to seeing hundreds of new collections in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, we’re anticipating another impressive crop of street-style photos, which dictate how everyone will dress this fall. Until then, we’re still clicking through our favorite street-style moments from couture, Copenhagen fashion week, Montauk, and beyond. For Monday’s Look of the Day poll, we gathered our favorite bandanna looks of late, including Caroline Brasch Nielsen, who stepped out with a paisley Chanel bag outside the couture shows. Worn with a casual men’s shirt, it’s clear why she earned first place. Cleo Wade and Mia Moretti wore bold Moschino bandanna tops at Lollapalooza, and we’ve been trying to figure out a way to DIY them ever since. On Wednesday, we celebrated our favorite (and super-easy) beauty trend: the high, messy bun. Katie Holmes won your vote at the Life Is Amazing film event in New York, where she sported a soft bun, smoky eyeliner, and a dramatic one-shoulder top. Cara Delevingne was a close second: Paired with a gilded gown, her fluffy bun looked edgy and unexpected. What else was on our minds this week? Boyish trousers, Madonna’s greatest hits, and so much more. See all of the week’s winners here.
What do Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have in common? Other than world-famous rear views, both are coveting Ulyana Sergeenko’s silky kimonos. Kim wore a teal robe to Jimmy Kimmel Live, while Rihanna styled her nude version with a matching bodysuit at the MTV Movie Awards. We dedicated a Look of the Day poll to the boudoir-inspired trend on Wednesday, then asked you to play favorites. It didn’t surprise us that Rihanna took first place. What else was on our minds this week? On Monday, we rounded up our favorite high necklines of late. In a sequined black Tamara Mellon dress, Karlie Kloss looked sexy and chic without revealing too much skin. Her look won first place, followed by Lottie Moss’ more casual blue suede number. On Tuesday, we turned our attention to our favorite performances at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. Indie It girl Jenny Lewis took to the stage in a starry rainbow suit, which won your vote by a landslide. And on Friday, we had a little too much fun hunting down photos of Pharrell-inspired Western hats. The musician’s Vivienne Westwood topper sparked a global phenomenon last January, inspiring stylish risk-takers like Anna Dello Russo to try one on for size. See all of the week’s winning looks here, plus a few runners-up for extra inspo.
If you haven’t heard yet, “summer blacks” (©Style.com) are in. Not only has the tried-and-true trend cropped up in the streets, the recent Resort collections, and the Style.com office, but it’s also been making frequent appearances on the red carpet. A glowing Rosamund Pike, who’s pregnant with her second child, chose a black, one-shouldered pleated Prada baby-doll dress for the Berlin premiere of Hector and the Search for Happiness on Tuesday. Heidi Klum rocked a shimmering, form-fitting Roberto Cavalli LBD for Wednesday’s America’s Got Talent postshow event in New York. And the next day, Marion Cotillard took to the red carpet in a black wool Dior dress from the Fall ’14 runway at the London premiere of Two Days, One Night.
While a lot of celebs played it safe this week and stuck to trusty styles that couldn’t fail, a trio of relatively unknown ladies caught our eye. They might not be household names just yet, but these fresh faces piqued our interest with standout styles. On Monday, What If actress Mackenzie Davis stepped out in a look from Nicolas Ghesquiè
re’s Fall ’14 Louis Vuitton collection for the film’s New York premiere. Elsewhere in the city, Charlotte Le Bon posed on the red carpet in a sheer, lace-paneled white frock from red-carpet favorite Elie Saab’s Pre-Fall ’14 lineup at Monday night’s premiere of her new film, The Hundred-Foot Journey. The following evening, Hannah Tointon turned heads in a pale pink satin Spring ’14 Prabal Gurung sheath at the world premiere of The Inbetweeners 2 in London. Needless to say, these Hollywood freshmen are off to a promising start. We’ll be watching, ladies.
In 2012, the platform was declared dead. That wasn’t exactly the case, but simpler, single-soled pumps have indeed been on the incline. And if the red carpet is any indication, we’ve now reached the next phase of this shoe-shedding trend with the growing popularity of Stuart Weitzman’s Nudist sandal. In recent months, Stars like Shailene Woodley, Diane Kruger, Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Schilling, and more have been spotted wearing the style, which is simple, sophisticated, and versatile. Stuart Weitzman offers them in more than 15 varieties of color, texture, and heel height, but our favorites are the leg-lengthening nude in Pan Goose Bump Nappa ($398), the Pyrite Nocturn ($398), and the Palette Python Patent. The latter are currently on sale for $199.
With fashion week but a month away, summer is drawing to a close for Style.com. That being said, we’re embracing the sunshine as much as possible before NYFW, namely with our Look of the Day polls. This week, we asked you to vote on your favorite minidresses, beachy braids, and even skateboards—things we will surely miss when the chill settles in. On Tuesday, we focused on feminine lace dresses in super-bright hues. Dior’s nearly-neon citrus frocks won your vote, while Elle Fanning’s embroidered orange Christopher Kane dress was a close second. Coming in third was Valentino’s striped number from Resort ’15, which would be perfect for a last-minute jaunt to Spain.
On Wednesday, we rounded up the coolest beat-the-heat summer braids. Amber Heard’s one-sided plait (which also showed off a glittering chandelier earring) won your vote and likely inspired hundreds of DIY versions. Rita Ora got in on the action with rainbow-dyed cornrows at Radio 1′s Big Weekend back in May, and Diane Kruger wore an intriguing double-braid to the premiere of The Birdge. On Friday, we found enough cool skateboarding pictures to make you reconsider your morning commute. Cara Delevingne, Binx Walton, and just about every guy on the Venice Boardwalk definitely know how to ride in style.
