Spring’s Shady Ladies

-------

The accessory of the season isn’t a shoe or a bag. Here at Style.com, we’re going with the wide-brimmed hat. Variations on the statement-making topper turned up at Victoria Beckham, Acne, and Costume National, but, in our view, the brims to beat are Hedi Slimane’s at Saint Laurent. Since the Spring shows, floppy felt chapeaux have all but replaced fedoras on the street. Recently, we’ve spotted models Miranda Kerr, Tilda Lindstam, and Daiane Conterato wearing them. Elizabeth Olsen is in the fan club, too.

Move Over, Silk PJs

-------

From filmy bra tops to opera coats with the rumpled appeal of bed sheets, there was a delectable boudoir influence at the Spring shows. Channeling Helmut Newton by way of Lillian Bassman, Jason Wu’s slim leather harnesses and corsetry details had editors tweeting “Fifty Shades of Wu.” Still, the overall message was more lady than vamp. Satin slips that hugged the figure in all the right places turned up at Narciso Rodriguez, Rochas, Céline, and Valentino. A handful of times, the spaghetti straps on those numbers fell off the models’ shoulders, but then they’d push them back up again with such come-hither nonchalance, the incidents seemed to have been planned all along. Silky robes at Miu Miu and the Row, and meant-to-be-seen bralettes from Victoria Beckham and Jonathan Saunders rounded out Spring’s lingerie chest.

Fashion Week Countdown: Before They Were On The Schedule…

-------

Ready or not, here it comes. New York fashion week is just over two and a half weeks away, and while the non-fashion world enjoys the last gasps of summer, we at Style.com are busy ramping up for the Spring ’13 shows. For the next few weeks, we’ll look forward by looking back—at our favorite moments from fashion weeks past.

Back in 2006, these two were just household names, tabloid fixtures, and front-row attendees: Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes. Now? They’re designers—and what’s more, competitors. Beckham has been showing in New York since 2008, and this season, Katie Holmes and her stylist, Jeanne Yang, will bring their Holmes & Yang collection to the New York runway for the first time. We’ll be looking forward to both on September 9.

The Closing Ceremony Bright Spots: Supes And Spice

-------

Throughout the London Olympics, fashion statements came in the form of gold and diamond grills (thank you, Ryan Lochte), patriotic nail art, and envelope-pushing jewelry, but it was last night’s Closing Ceremony that won the gold medal by a long shot in the Games’ fashion competition. After Nick Knight-lensed billboards featuring Brit supermodels including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Stella Tennant, Lily Cole, Georgia May Jagger, and David Gandy made their way into the stadium, the supes hit the Union Jack-shaped catwalk wearing one-of-a-kind gold numbers by top London labels like Alexander McQueen, Erdem, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, and Christopher Kane, to David Bowie’s “Fashion.” They were followed by performers wearing gold helmets, who created a giant gold skull formation as a tribute to the late Lee Alexander McQueen. The segment, put together by Closing Ceremony creative director Kim Gavin along with British Vogue and the British Fashion Council, was reportedly a year in the making. But perhaps the even bigger highlight of the night was watching Victoria Beckham shed her icy persona and step back into her Posh Spice role when she took the stage for the big finale with the rest of the Spice Girls. The designer, who wore a strapless black dress by Giles Deacon for the show, tweeted: “I was a pop star for the night! I love you [girls]! We did it!”
