Alexander Wang, Vena Cava, and Albertus Swanepoel nabbed the three prizes last night at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, but the evening also featured a couple of prevalent looks, which we’d like to think of as winners in their own right. The first is the pant—particularly one that’s carrot-shaped and cropped—a trend which reached critical mass at the Spring collections in various forms. The covered-leg crew included Juliette Lewis in a sequined Phillip Lim jumpsuit, Chanel Iman in Daughters gray flannel, Agyness Deyn in a boyish tux, Liya Kebede in Proenza Schouler, Jessica Joffe in Helmut Lang, and Thelma Golden and Rachel Roy. With Swanepoel as a clearly worthy contender, it’s logical that millinery would also make a strong showing. Of course there was the designer’s own date, Coco Rocha, but joining her were Julie Gilhart in a jaunty mini top hat by Eugenia Kim, John Galliano in a daisy-strewn top hat, Deyn in a flattened boater from Marc Jacobs’ Spring show, and André Leon Talley in what looks like a very stylish evening hunting cap. Honorable mention goes to the one-shoulder dress, seen on Vogue‘s Meredith Melling Burke (in Peter Som) and Virginia Smith, and Style.com’s Candy Pratts Price, in Givenchy.
Wearing underwear as outerwear is nothing new. Exposed bra straps date at least as far back as Madonna in her Desperately Seeking Susan days. Exposed underpants are a rather newer development, but there’s no denying that briefs are a bona fide trend. In the last few weeks, we’ve spotted party girls Liz Goldwyn, Juliette Lewis, and Daisy Lowe modeling them over black hose. And if designers have their way, we’ll be working the look sans tights come spring. Glorified panties—the term “short shorts” does not do them justice—were all over the runways, everywhere from Marni to MaxMara to Marc Jacobs. Will you dare to go bare? Let us know.
Kate Moss and rocker Jamie Hince have split up. Maybe Moss should look outside of the indie-musician rubric for her next relationship. How about a nice ophthalmologist? Just stay away from finance guys. They’re, um, not doing so hot right now.
You may never have heard of Milanese label Miss Bikini Luxe, but that didn’t stop actress-turned-songstress Juliette Lewis from turning model for the line’s runway show in Milan on Saturday. Judging by our exclusive video footage of Lewis playing dress-up, we should have known a catwalk career was imminent.
