It was a whirlwind month for this season’s freshman class of models, who ended things on a high note in Paris by making their final first impressions at the shows that really count. We were ecstatic to see many of the fresh faces we’ve had our eye on since early September go on to solidify their spots on our top newcomer list. After making the grade in New York, London, and Milan, Malaika Firth demonstrated the poise of a veteran in the City of Light, where she bookended Valentino and walked sixteen other runways including Anthony Vaccarello, Céline, Giambattista Valli, Miu Miu, and Stella McCartney. Altogether, Firth totaled an impressive fifty-five shows for Spring ’14, and we can’t wait to see her in upcoming ad campaigns and editorial spreads. Several of the other front-runners who’ve been in the spotlight from the start picked up the pace for the final segment. Alexander Wang opener Anna Ewers finished with thirty-seven catwalk appearances and did turns at Balenciaga, Céline, Chanel, and Isabel Marant in Paris, among others. Our personal favorite, Binx Walton (bottom right), took the city by storm—Acne Studios, Alexander McQueen, Céline, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Saint Laurent were just a few of her credits.
Moving along, we simply cannot get enough of Kate Goodling (top left). She’s the total package, with a combination of all-American good looks, editorial appeal, and a killer runway body. Well managed by Ford NY across the Atlantic, Goodling also racked up thirty-seven shows, hitting top-tier catwalks in Paris like Balenciaga, Chanel, Chloé, Dior, Givenchy, Lanvin, and Nina Ricci. We were also dazzled by Lexi Boling, another Ford NY girl, who turned up at Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Céline, and Chloé. French belle Elodia Prieto (top right), who opened and closed Calvin Klein in New York, took advantage of her hometown advantage and finished up at Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Céline, Dior, Givenchy, Haider Ackermann, and Nina Ricci. Finally, check out Svetlana Zakharova’s (bottom left) mesmerizing gaze and bone structure. She was an Alexander Wang exclusive in New York, and blew us away in Paris at Chlo#233;, Balmain, Giambattista Valli, and Isabel Marant. We could go on and on raving about this season’s successful rookies—and there were plenty other notables, including Irina Liss, Ine Neefs, Ophelie Guillermand, Devon Windsor, and Sabrina Loffreda, who made the Spring ’14 runways all the more vibrant.
After holographic shoes and accessories popped up at Stella McCartney’s Resort ’13 presentation, we were instantly hooked. Lucky for us, multihued mirror finishes still feel fun and fresh a full year later. By sticking with simple silhouettes, designers have managed to make these eye-catching pieces remarkably wearable, too. Go bold with a light-reflecting skirt or scintillating sweatshirt, or add just a touch of shimmer with an iridescent mani.

Will the snakeskin motif ever go out of style? We don’t anticipate it happening anytime soon, especially since designers have been getting extra creative with their scaly wares. Cobalt hues and metallic finishes bring a modern edge to traditional snake prints, and on-trend shapes like slouchy sweatshirts, knee-length skirts, and oversize clutches make them essential additions to your fall wardrobe.

It seems that Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle site, Goop—which has, in the past, collaborated with the likes of Warby Parker, Clare Vivier, and Butter London—has a new project in the works with Stella McCartney. While the Telegraph speculates about the details of the partnership—Sportswear? Lingerie? Skincare?—all we know, per the site’s homepage, is that it’s launching in September. As if next month isn’t busy enough, we’ll also be tuning in on the first to get the scoop on Goop.
Though most of us now consider leopard print a “neutral,” it still manages to pack a punch season after season. This fall, our jungle cat motif is of the snow leopard variety.
