Celebrities Love…Vinyl Trousers

Vinyl has been having a revival of sorts—and not just of the record type.

Trousers of the vinyl variety have been popping up during Fashion Weeks—from New York to London and Paris—capturing the affection of trendy celebrities as they transition their wardrobes into fall.

The glossy PVC pants bring a whole new layer of edginess mixed with stylish rebellion, providing an updated twist on the traditional leather trouser. And, they are way more than a one-trick-pony, as this recent trio of stars proves just how sartorially versatile they can be.

If you immediately associate vinyl with the colour black, Sara Sampaio’s look during London Fashion Week will quickly change your perception of PVC. I love the intense teal hue of her cropped pants. Styled with matching Chloe Gosselin sandals along with a cropped shirt and a Chanel bag, it was a timelessly modern look that radiated with cool-girl appeal.

Larsen Thompson continues to impress with her directional looks, and this street-style 3.1 Phillip Lim head-to-toe statement from New York Fashion Week was no different. The shiny, sky-blue pants with a mock paper bag waist showed that tight, spray-on vinyl isn’t the only way to wear the trend.

As for Kourtney Kardashian, she also hopped on the vinyl bandwagon with her look just yesterday (September 26) during Paris Fashion Week. Offering a tough-girl-chic variation, she paired slick, army-green Acne Tugi vinyl trousers with a T by Alexander Wang chunky asymmetrical sweater, an Alexander Wang ‘Attica Soft Mini Cross Body Bag, and Dr. Martens boots.

Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

The list of lovelies at Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’ on Friday (September 8) in New York City was seemingly unending, as a number of stars joined Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Kim Kardashian.

Gigi Hadid: Her hyper-embellished Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 ensemble, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was so intricate and powerful of a statement that it really didn’t require the rhinestone clogs.

Kaia Gerber: Cindy Crawford’s model daughter was all grown up in a slinky Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2017 mini that had her looking like her mom more and more.

Kendall Jenner: There was little left to the imagination in this Dolce & Gabbana ruched, sheer number. Yet, ironically in spite of the see-through, I couldn’t help but still get a certain sophisticated, glam vibe with the look, which I will chalk up to its silhouette along with Kendall’s Old-Hollywood waves, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

Refinery29’s 29Rooms Event

Refinery29 hosted an interactive funhouse of style, culture, and technology in New York City on Thursday (September 7), where a number of PYTs came out to play at this 3rd annual 29Rooms event.

Larsen Thompson: I absolutely love how Larsen used her look to echo the whimsy of the event. Her Arianne Elmy blouse with ruffled statement sleeves was perfectly balanced to the edgier, sleek shine of the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Fall 2017 trousers—all topped off with Alchimia Di Ballin ‘Kari’ boots for a retro-forward finish.

Shay Mitchell: Shay let the bold print of this Fausto Puglisi Resort 2018 oversized jacket do the talking. There was something about the fit that threw me off, though, as it appeared slightly haphazard. The chain necklaces also remained unnecessary.

Larsen Thompson In A.F. Vandevorst – Bulgari Celebrates Launch Of New Fragrance ‘Goldea, The Roman Night’

Larsen Thompson has already captured our attention for her it-girl style and enviable long locks, and she continued to flaunt her uniquely individual look at the Bulgari launch of new fragrance ‘Goldea, The Roman Night’ on Wednesday (September 6) in New York City, where she joined Bella Hadid.

She ushered in the decadence of fall fashion with her A.F. Vandevorst Spring 2018 ensemble that looked as if it duly reflected the moody, dark romance of the fragrance.

While some would have skipped the slouchy red boots in favour of a simpler black sandal, she fully—and boldly—committed to the look that brought additional drama in the dress’s embellished, full sleeve.

An intense, oxblood lip was right in line with the rest of the look’s strong sensibility.

Who’s That Girl? Larsen Thompson

Making waves with her board-straight, auburn locks and dancing her way into the style spotlight, Larsen Thompson has emerged on the scene with a sense of trend-forward appeal and a uniquely individualistic look—while single-handedly making her signature freckles her best fashion accessory.

The young dancer, actress, and model, who made a cameo in Katy Perry’s ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ music video, has been spotted recently at a variety of events.

Maybelline’s Los Angeles Influencer Launch Event: On Thursday (August 10), Larsen wore a 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2017 ensemble that completely reinterpreted drawstring and denim. I love the crisp-white flair of the top in partnership with the bold, blue focal point of the skirt. The one thing I would have changed is her shoes, as the nude heels were a mere afterthought.

BeautyCon LA x Revlon Event: It could be the particularly pretty lighting, but this shimmery, sun-sparked look over the weekend at BeautyCon LA is one of my current favourites for the starlet. I love the intrinsic femininity that this Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2017 dress possesses with its cold-shoulder detailing and flared hem. And, her hair is dazzling with the emerald green tones.

BeautyCon LA: Rounding out the BeautyCon weekend on Saturday (August 12), Larsen completely changed style direction in an Alessandra Rich Fall 2017 ruffled, double-breasted jacket dress. She made no apologies for its retro styling, especially since she wore the ever-popular Stuart Weitzman ‘Clinger’ booties with it. However, I gravitate towards wishing for a sleeker sandal and an updo so as not to compete with the dress.

Leibish & Co. jewelry completed her weekend looks.
