Following in the iconic and mega footsteps of her big sister Kate, 16-year-old Lottie Moss is taking a career building leap pairing with the famed brand that some say put Kate Moss on the map. InStyle UK has revealed that the young Brit beauty has posed for Calvin Klein’s new capsule with online store My Theresa, aptly called the Reissue Project. Featuring reworked versions of Klein’s classic denim pieces — including a few that her sister famously wore in 1992 CK’s ads, the Reissue Project has pulling in the talents of not only mini-Moss, but also famous photographer Richard Avedon’s grandson, Michael Avedon who helmed the shooting of the nostalgic black-and-white campaign. It looks like it’s time to bust out your early 90′s denim!read more
Since last weekend’s holiday, it’s offical — an all-white ensemble is both completely acceptable (as if any archaic rules are going to stop us) and absolutely of-the-moment. Wearing white on white, then even more white is the thing to do this spring for an effortless, chic look that manages fresh and fierce in equal measure. Pair your white jeans with a sheer cream button-up, a printed ivory pencil skirt with a bulky milk hued sweater, or a sexy cream wrap dress with white sandals — add a scarf or white and gold beads and voila! The epitome of elegance without looking like you tried at all. Here is some all-white inspiration from the celebs that are doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well.read more
We’re a sucker for mega-model/designer/occasional music column critic, Kate Moss, and it seems so is David Yurman.
Today Yurman announced that Moss would be returning as the face of the Fall 2014 campaign, celebrating the ten year partnership between the model, the brand, and noted photographer Peter Lindbergh. The full campaign, called Enduring Style, is set to debut in August, but Yurman was nice enough to grace us with the stunning teaser image above.
“The fall campaign is about a return to the classics,” Yurman said of the brands announcement. “Our jewelry has evolved, but the style is always timeless. We chose Kate because she is iconic, sophisticated, and rock and roll all at the same time – a combination that is the very core of this brand.”
Between her recent return as Topshop collaborator and now this, 2014 is proving to be a year of revival for the supermodel. Congrats Kate!
Today marks the highly anticipated lookbook launch of Kate Moss’s new collection for Topshop, revealing a flowy, fringy and form-fitting takedown of western ethereal meets 70′s glam rock inspired by the ageless “it” girl’s own wardrobe.
After a four-year hiatus from the fast-fashion brand, Miss Moss offers up a mixed collection of fringed and shimmering blazers, heavily beaded evening wear and versatile smock dresses that pay homage to the supermodel’s frequent summertime haunt, the Balearic Islands.
Debuting on Topshop, Net-A-Porter and Nordstrom on April 30th, the collection is heavily focused on fabric quality and craftsmanship, using soft suedes, silk chiffons, and imported beading and lace, making the $70 to $1,200 price tags seem perfectly reasonable.
Wallflowers will have a heck of a time getting any attention this season, as metallics march their way into the wardrobes of tres chic “it” girls like Kate Bosworth, Cara Delevingne, Alexa Chung, and Kate Moss — and then steadily make their way into everyone else’s closets.
The holiday’s are a great time to pull-on a little extra gilding, and with the S/S 14 collections of such fashion darlings as Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra, Lanvin, and Givenchy featuring silver, bronze, and gold gilt jackets, skirts, and looks from designers are dominating F/W looks — and metallics seem to be leading the pack!
This isn’t Meadham Kirchhoff’s first time at the Topshop collaboration rodeo, but it may be the most spirited. The London-based label is pairing up with the fast-fashion giant again for a whimsical collection of clothing and accessories, set to hit store shelves on Nov. 21st. Designers Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff’s rule-breaking aesthetic is in full-effect with a line infused with colorful, fun and flirty pieces like mohair jumpers, glittery ruby platforms with marshmallow heels, and frilly baby-doll dresses.
The duo’s 2010 collection for Topshop was elegant and ghostly, reminiscent of a stylishly tricked-out Miss Havisham — all deconstructed jackets, floaty little dresses and oversized girlish tees, but this one — sitting at a super-sized 80-pieces — is expected to sit on a more modern spectrum, taking it’s inspiration from a fictional glam rock band quirkily dubbed, “The Cherrys.”
With the recent arrival of Kate Bosworth’s second turn at a Topshop collection, and the reveal that uber-model Kate Moss is also planning a sophomore effort with the store, we can be assured that fast-fashion’s love affair with collaborating is far from over — and that news will likely keep you warm all winter long.
Miss Moss is playing musical hats of late, donning a slew of multitasking headgear to kick off the tail end of 2013. First came the announcement that she would once again join the Topshop team as designer in a new collaboration. And now this: Kate Moss is taking on the role of “contributing fashion editor” at British Vogue.
The fashion tome’s website described the supermodel’s position by writing: “[Kate Moss] will be a hands-on editor joining the rest of the Vogue fashion team of stylists and working with her choice of photographers and models.”
It makes sense that the famed It-girl — known for her on-the-street fashion, as well as her haute couture, and celebrated on 33 covers of British Vogue covers herself — would take on the magazine’s masthead. Moss’s combination of chic style and elite fashion friends makes her the best possible choice to join the list of many of today’s top editors (Carine Roitfeld, Grace Coddington) who modeled before taking on editorial positions. Here are some of our favorite Kate Moss British Vogue covers.
It’s almost here… September. Harbinger of the end of summer, Fall fashion week, and the long-awaited September issue.
Next month’s fashion tomes have been likened to the bible of annual style to the heavy-weight champion, but bible or boxing, it’s hard to deny the effect September issues of magazines like Vogue, InStyle, and W have on the fashion world.
Crammed full of advertisements (oh, so many advertisements) and the very latest in style, trends, and beauty advice, it’s obvious why starlets and models vie to snag a September issue cover, so we thought we’d unveil some of this year’s big winners for you. From Jennifer Lawrence’s Vogue issue, to Lady Gaga’s multiple V magazine covers, to Drew Barrymore’s InStyle issue, celebs are covering a slew of September’s whoppers, while model/celebs get their due with Kate Moss fronting Interview, Cara Delevingne on W, and Kate Upton on Elle. Here’s a little visual preview of the issues that will be taking up the real-estate on your coffee table.read more
