Relaxing the Red Carpet

January 16, 2015

Awards season is in full swing, and stars are relaxing the dress code and abandoning the screen siren gown for something a little more low key.Last week we showed you who wore the pants at the People’s Choice awards. Today, lets take a peek at the cocktail length dresses with a 50’s vibe that turned up on the Critic’s Choice red carpet.

Leslie Mann’s pale grey stunner with spliced panels and sheer and sparkle from Honor.

White Space

May 8, 2012

There is an age-old rule of fashion that declares, “ White should not be worn before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.” For decades, women adhered to this, as if it were gospel. Until now.

This season, many designers showed white leather shoes and handbags for winter, causing a clash of seasonality and fashion etiquette that somehow looks very modern.

Phillip Lim showed white t-strap dancing shoes with heavy winter woolens. Worn with bare legs, or dark tights, the contradiction of style looks very fresh and youthful.

J.Mendel, known for his luxe sophisticated sportswear and furs, showed creamy winter whites layered head to toe. His white leather shoes and bags were the perfect accompaniment.

Indie design favorite, Alexander Wang also embraced the rule-bending, by adding an oversized white bag to this edgy black and white look.

As our weather patterns spiral out of control, predicting what is appropriate to wear is nearly impossible. Why not just roll with it, and let your style be the guiding force, rather than a confused weather-person, or an outdated notion of what is proper?
