Every day, we ask Style.com readers to decide “who wore it best” in our Look of the Day polls. Sometimes, we aren’t surprised by your choices—for example, Chanel is always a safe bet for first place. But when we asked you to choose between Beyoncé and Rihanna on Thursday, we were on the edge of our seats waiting to see the results. Both chart-toppers wore similar looks—denim cutoffs and crop tops—but Bey’s printed blouse and glinty gold crown earned her the top prize. Maybe next week, RiRi. Earlier in the week, we rounded up our favorite ’60s-inspired minidresses, like the ones we saw at Gucci and Miu Miu at the Fall ’14 shows. Chloë Grace Moretz won your vote in a pastel embroidered Miu Miu frock at the premiere of her new movie, If I Stay, but Alexa Chung’s lacy number was a close second. What else was on Style.com’s radar this week? Skater skirts, the Teen Choice Awards, and even summertime fur. See all of this week’s winners (and a few runners-up) here.
Sure, only a few of this season’s Resort shows have been unveiled, but it’s safe to say where Chanel goes, fashion follows. Apart from the gas-can-shaped Chanel bag (which is already provoking debate), a few style statements from yesterday’s Dubai extravaganza stood out. Here, five trends we saw at Chanel Cruise (and that we’ll probably see again soon):
1. The thigh-high sock-sandal hybrid: Why wear socks with sandals when you can wear socks that also happen to be sandals?
2. The nail-less glove: Karl’s long been a fan of the fingerless glove, but for Cruise we spotted a nail-less glove that leaves just enough room to expose your tips.
3. The harem pant: These billowy pants and their elastic ankle cuffs were a constant at Chanel Cruise. Our reviewer Tim Blanks wasn’t a fan, but consumers may adopt them.
4. The hair brooch: The super-voluminous hairstyling used for each model appeared to almost swallow the headbands they were wearing. The result? An illusion of floating pendants (like crescent moons and signature C’s) in the center of their locks.
5. Mirrored accessories: When it came to accessorizing, Karl kept it symmetric. Perhaps the most curious trend we spotted: Many of the models donned matching accessories on both wrists and, in one instance, fingers.
