The winter conundrum: Keep warm or keep chic. Cold-weather-proof clothing is often the antithesis of fashionable, but December through March is not a lost cause. Take a cue from models-off-duty Frida Gustavsson and Jacquelyn Jablonski, who added a little something extra to their look with colorful printed scarves. Get their look with four of our favorite pieces from Isabel Marant, Givenchy, Jil Sander, and more, below.

Devoted model obsessives pore over the casting for shows like Balenciaga, Prada, and Calvin Klein. But while most models are indeed thrilled to book high-fashion shows, many say the one they most dream of is the annual Victoria’s Secret lingerie spectacular. At last night’s epic show, there were plenty of Angels we’ve already come to know and love including Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, and Candice Swanepoel. But there were also 11 new girls, most very recognizable as European catwalk veterans. This year’s rookies included: Style.com/Print cover star Cara Delevingne and her fellow Brit Jourdan Dunn, Hilary Rhoda, Frida Gustavsson (left), Shu Pei Qin, Barbara Palvin, Jasmine Tookes, and Jessica Hart. We’ve got our favorite newcomer. How about you?
Black leather jacket, black T-shirt, black stovepipes, black motorcycle boots: You know it’s fashion week when packs of identically dressed, genetically blessed girls stalk the streets, followed by swarms of photographers. But it wasn’t all Rick Owens and Ann Demeulemeester numbers this year. Models, not unlike editors and It girls, it seems, have realized that they can raise their personal stock value by stepping up their sartorial individualism. These days, the likes of Ruby Aldridge, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Frida Gustavsson are just as well-known for their off-runway flair as they are for their on-runway struts. Abbey Lee Kershaw is often snapped vamping around town in an over-the-top fur, and Caroline Brasch Nielsen appears to own an entire closetful of Isabel Marant. We have our favorites.

The Golden Globe and SAG nominations have been announced, and now, in the spirit of awards season, Modelinia has handed out a few honors of its own to this year’s hottest catwalkers. For its first-ever Style Awards, Modelinia judged models in five categories: Hottest Red Look, Biggest Risk Taker, Best Red Carpet Glam, Best Accessorizer, and Best Model Off-Duty. Model-of-the-moment Karlie Kloss came out on top in the red dress category, beating industry veterans like Gisele Bündchen and Miranda Kerr, for the Jason Wu gown she wore to this year’s CFDA Awards. (Though Kloss’ dress was definitely the biggest standout in the group, it seems like Natalia Vodianova should have at least made the list for the dramatic Valentino dress she wore to her annual Love Ball). In the off-runway category, Joan Smalls beat Kate Moss, which didn’t surprise us: We’re still gushing over Smalls’ denim-on-denim at the Spring shows. But we are curious why some of our favorites, Frida Gustavsson and Caroline Brasch Nielsen, were left off that list altogether. See who made the cut, below. And check Style File next Thursday for our favorite model-off-duty looks of the year.

This season, Prada threw a curveball with its Fall campaign, selecting a cast of almost-unknowns for its Steven Meisel-shot ads. But according to the company, innocence was the point. Frida Gustavsson (the most recognizable of the bunch), Kelly Mittendorf, Julia Zimmer, Ondria Hardin, Antonia Wesseloh, and Dorte Limkilde lounge in what the label calls “a dressing room of contemporary desire disguised as a playroom of childhood dreams,” wearing grown-up takes on childhood staples. The fun goes on in Meisel’s accompanying film, debuting above.
