Sara Sampaio In Victoria, Victoria Beckham – Paris Sighting

After walking the runway during Paris Fashion Week, Sara Sampaio was seen in Paris on Friday (September 29) looking appropriately fashion-forward.

The Portuguese model’s off-duty style often focuses on crop tops, skinny jeans and denim cut-offs so I enjoyed seeing this preppier side of her. Sara selected Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2017 wide leg, reverse denim trousers. Playing off the sporty stripe of the jeans, she added a roomy button-down blouse and a pale blue bag.

Sara opted for white sneakers as opposed to the original sandals. What did you think of the way she styled the jeans?

Irving Penn Exhibition Private Viewing Hosted by Vogue

A private viewing, hosted by Vogue, for the Irving Penn exhibition at the Grand Palais was held on Sunday (October 1) during Paris Fashion Week.

Adwoa Aboah: Taking a break from walking the runways at Paris Fashion Week, Adwoa posed in a Richard Quinn Spring 2018 look that offered an invigorating, happy mix of ditzy florals. You would think with so many bold, competing prints that this would translate as disjointed. But, on the contrary, I loved this look on Adwoa, and I also credit its success to her minimal approach to the styling, with a black sandal and red pout all she needed. Flower power, indeed.

Kylie Minogue: I think it’s safe to say that Kylie put this Alice McCall ‘More Than A Woman’ fringe gown to work for her—as it was made to be spun around. As fun as it was, I was a bit tassel fatigued and the muted, mauve-pink colour wasn’t my favourite for the vibrancy of the entertainer, but she attempted to bring a splash of vividness via her lipstick.

Dita von Teese: With a look that riffed on the field-of-poppies print from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 Couture collection, Dita maximized proportions with this look. I have mixed feelings on the balloon sleeves, as they might be lumped into a costume-y circus category. But, the colours were striking in contrast to the black pencil skirt.

Milan Fashion Week Street Style: Sara Sampaio rocks HUGO

Sara Sampaio was spotted out during Milan Fashion Week on Saturday (September 23) wearing an oversized crinkled canvas coat, matching pants and a cotton crop top from the latest HUGO Spring 2018 collection.

I was hugely drawn to this look. I especially love how the oversized silhouette appears razor sharp and exudes plenty of androgynous charm.

Yes, she didn’t deviate too far from the runway, but those yellow pumps give her look a whole new dimension.

It’s so refreshing to see a model rocking oversized separates rather than the standard model off-duty uniform.

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.
