New York’s Instagram outlaws…
NYC risk-takers are soaring to Instagram fame by snapping photos from difficult-to-access, restricted locations.

Editor Obsessions: Saint Laurent Glitter Pumps

-------

saint-laurent-glitterEvery day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

Like most New Yorkers, I tend to wear a lot of black during the fall (not to be confused with “summer blacks”). So, naturally, I’m a big proponent of ostentatious shoes, as they liven up a noir ensemble. In my favorite color, these fuchsia Saint Laurent pumps have the two things I look for in any wardrobe investment: They’re edgy and feminine. Plus, the stacked heel makes them easy to walk in. My only issue would be trying not to wear them every day, because I like them that much.

A Different Kind of Muse for Saint Laurent’s Fall ’14 Ads

Hedi Slimane’s grungy musical muses, like Courtney Love, Beck, and Marilyn Manson, are nowhere to be seen in his Fall ’14 campaign for Saint Laurent. The gig went instead to Valery Kaufman, a model who exudes a fresh-faced kind of charm. With her spangly dresses, studded go-go boots, pussy-bow blouses, and graphic eyeliner, Kaufman looks like a quintessential
swinging 60s London girl. You can see the full campaign on YSL.com, where a digital flipbook of sorts cycles through each look. The Fall snaps have piqued our interest about what¹s next for Saint Laurent; mark your calendars for Slimane’s Spring ’15 show this September. The designer went boho in his recent menswear show, but will he follow suit for women?

Edie Campbell Wins the Magnolia Cup—Which Is Not a Modeling Award, by the Way

-------

Edie Campbell is no one-trick pony. The much-loved model, who is the face of countless new ad campaigns (Bottega Veneta, Lanvin, Saint Laurent, and Alexander McQueen among them), is also a competitive horsewoman in her (probably limited) spare time. This afternoon, she showed off her equestrian skills at the Glorious Goodwood Ladies Charity Race in Chichester, England, and took home the Magnolia Cup. According to British Vogue , it was admittedly a high-fashion horse race: Vivienne Westwood designed some of the jockeys’ uniforms, jeweler Theo Fennell dreamed up the sculpture prizes, and Tom Cruise handed out the awards. Campbell participated in the hopes of raising £10,000 for The Reading Agency, a charity that promotes the importance of reading for both children and adults. You can still sponsor her here.
