New York Fashion Week has officially wrapped and now the fashion set are already in London viewing what Britain has to offer for Spring/Summer 2015. Disregard the chill in the air (and the snow in some cases) and see what sizzled on the runways.Before we focus on Europe, check out the top four trends from the U.S. from New York Fashion Week for spring.
Sports Illustrated: Designers like Alexander Wang and Dion Lee used inspiration from the world of sports for their spring collections. Hoodies, boxy T-shirts and track suit-esque items dominated the catwalk.
Pastel Perfection: Periwinkle, baby blue and soft pink peppered many designer collections. It’s not uncommon to see pastels for spring, but the fresh hues are always welcome after a long winter of darks.
Gingham Style: Dorothy Gale from Kansas may have worn gingham best, but we’ll have a chance to emulate her iconic look next spring.
Fringe Fest: Fringe is not only for cowboys and lounge singers. Designer houses like DKNY and Milly offered fringe as an accent on many of the pieces in their collections.
There are so many celebrities coming in and out of Toronto, it’s so hard to keep track of them. Just when I think that’s it, there’s more! TIFF regulars including Keira Knightley and Julianne Moore were present this week for their new movies and they packed some heavy-hitting clothes with them. Reese Witherspoon stunned on the red carpet twice and Tina Fey and Jennifer Garner took the little black dress to whole different levels.
I love that Jessica Chastain, Julianne Moore and Keira Knightley wore white after Labour Day. Can we put that silly rule to rest?
Which TIFF 2014 look are you coveting?
The metropolis of Toronto has been turned into a scene from a Baz Luhrmann film – wild, vibrant and full of life – all because of the Toronto International Film Festival. While hundreds of industry folk attend screenings of the latest films from the world’s finest, many Torontonians are seeking out celebrity sightings. There have been many. Al Pacino here, Juliette Binoche there and it’s only day 2 of the festival.
So far stars like Greta Gerwig, Kristen Wiig, Kristen Bell, Vera Farmiga and many more have supported their films and walked the red carpets. Just like their movies, some of these looks are better than others.
Kristen Wiig attended the premiere of her newest film Welcome To Me wearing an adorable, mixed patterned frock and funky red shoes. Wiig isn’t known for her style, but she really should be. She’s not afraid to take risks and show off her fabulous gams.
The French know how to dress and boy did Oscar winner Juliette Binoche prove that. I saw her at the screening of her newest movie Clouds of Sils Maria and she looked simply magnetic. Her black and white gown had a gorgeous plunging neckline and was reminiscent of a Japanese kimono. P.S. she’s kind of flawless in person.
Vera Farmiga arrived on the red carpet in support of her newest movie The Judge. While I liked the pattern and sheerness of her gown, I would have loved if it didn’t have such a high neck.
