What girl wouldn’t love a Cartier diamond necklace or a pair of Van Cleef earrings? Few that we know. For his latest project, photographer Peter Lippmann, who counts fashion brands ranging from Cartier to Christian Louboutin as clients, toyed with that concept and dressed a slew of chicks (literally, chicks) in haute bijoux from high-end jewelry labels, including Van Cleef & Arpels, Buccellati, and more. Here, for your afternoon pick-me-up, check out these blinged-out birds dripping in diamonds and rubies for his new Luxury Chicks photo series.
From the handbags at Phillip Lim‘s latest ready-to-wear show to the sand-filled Plexiglas heels at Rodarte this past February, it’s pretty safe to say that clear accessories are having a fashion moment. And if we needed further proof, Tommy Ton caught an early adopter of the trend in Milan as she rummaged through her see-through Chanel bag while en route between menswear shows. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite show-all-you’ve-got Perspex accessories from the likes of Charlotte Olympia and Christian Louboutin to buy right now.

Caroline Brasch Nielsen (pictured) may be one of the most stylish models off duty we’ve seen. Props to the Danish stunner who has yet to be snapped in the black skinny jeans, black T-shirt, and motorcycle boot model uniform that her long-legged friends have made famous. Nielsen always takes to the streets in something unique, and she’s never lacking in the accessories department. During Paris Couture, Tommy Ton caught the model in suede chukka sneakers, which made for a quirky but chic twist when paired with a leopard skirt and top and an iconic quilted Chanel bag. Want to step into Nielsen’s shoes? We found four options to try below.

Barneys unveiled the latest piece of its multi-year renovation today—a new 22,000-square-foot floor that is sure to have footwear fans pulling out their credit cards upon arrival. The bright, minimalist fifth-floor space, which has been under way since Gaga’s Workshop packed up back in the winter, houses both men’s and women’s designer shoes (a first for the Madison Avenue flagship), as well as travel accessories from the likes of Givenchy, Balenciaga, and Rimowa.
The new edition (58 percent bigger than the old shoe floor), done under the direction of Dennis Freedman and interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg, features white marble walls, brass fixtures, limestone flooring, iPad stations throughout (conveniently located next to the cushioned seats), and brass-mesh glass cases to highlight specific labels. In the women’s area, those two spaces are designated for two of the store’s major brands, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik. You’ll find Barneys-exclusive (denoted with the XO signs) styles from Blahnik, Sergio Rossi, and Maison Martin Margiela for women, and for men, shoes from the likes of Battistoni, Endless, and Harris. Co-Op shoes will remain on the eighth floor for men and on the seventh floor for women. In celebration of its newest renovation completion, Barneys has launched Perfect Pairs, a campaign to support the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and its Americans for Marriage Equality Program, with 10 percent of sales from the new shoe floor between today and Sunday going to the HRC. Next to be finished on the retailer’s flagship makeover project is the women’s ground floor, set to be completed in September. Here, a first look at the new fifth level.
