Paris Fashion Week this year was aaaaaaaaamazing. Between the designers, the new collections, the fabulous models and the new trends to look out for, it’s so much to take in. So here’s a list of Paris Fashion Week’s top WOW moments.
Kendall Jenner walked for Chanel in their supermarket themed show, showing that the Keeping up with the Kardashians starlet is more than just a pretty face. This comes as a bit of a shock since Chanel’s designer, Karl Lagerfeld, had some not so nice words to say about the family last year, but it seems Kendall has changed his mind. The tall brunette beauty also graced the Givenchy runway with her, very talked about, bleached eyebrows.
Anna Wintour sat second row at Valentino’s fall 2014 show today which caused a decent amount of buzz. Though some believe it had to do with possible drama, the truth is seating was limited and the talented designer gave up her seat so one of her editors could sit in the front. Talk about a class act.
Cara Delevingne has made yet another BIG impression on the fashion world with her quirky attitude and hilarious personality. While walking down the catwalk at the Stella McCartney show in Paris, Cara decided that for the finale she would ditch the serious model walk and, instead, shimmy/skip her way down instead.

Miranda Kerr Shows off H&M’s New Line and Posts Selfies Straight from the Paris Fashion Week Runway!
Mid March is bringing with it an amazing new H&M campaign with stunning Aussie model, Miranda Kerr, as its spokesperson. Annex Magazine reported in a post earlier this month that Miranda had been named the official face of H&M’s new collection, but now we have the sneak peek of the fabulous and affordable outfits that you’ll want to make a part of your wardrobe. The outfits have a perfect balance of masculine tailoring and flirty feminine touches that brings a soft touch to an edgy outfit.
Following her split for Orlando Bloom, it seems that she’s been keeping herself busy and happy with her ambassador duties. Wednesday night she appeared at H&M’s fashion week show in Paris, where she even posted a selfie on her Instagram from the front row.
Uh-oh! Some serious drama has hit the fashion world this week! Looks like Anna Wintour and Giorgio Armani are about to enter the boxing ring and fight it out. In case you haven’t heard, the final show in Milan took place this Monday and Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief for American Vogue and artistic director of Condé Nast, was MIA. The final show’s only well-known, big designer was none other than Giorgio Armani, who did not take the absence well.
In a press conference following the final fashion show, Giorgio had some choice words for Anna. He explained his frustration stating, ”Why should I always be the moron [translating from an Italian expletive] to be penalized because of a person, who, for better or for worse, like or dislike it, is powerful? I feel penalized. She said she was sending her people. But if you go to see your dentist and he puts you in the hands of his assistant, what’s your reaction? They told me, ‘She went to see the [Armani] Prive in Paris; she has no time to see the ready-to-wear in Milan.’ She is influential and powerful. But, perhaps, I’m influential as well.” Anna’s representative at Condé Nast defended Ms. Wintour claiming, ”Anna has the greatest respect for Giorgio Armani and everything he has done for Italy and fashion worldwide. Unfortunately, with the fashion calendar now running for more than a month, there are some shows that Anna is not able to attend.”
Let’s hope they figure things out soon because, let’s face it, boxing gloves aren’t cute on anyone…

This Monday it was announced that the creative directors of Helmut Lang, Nicole and Michael Colovos, would be leaving after an eight year stint with the New York company. Andrew Rosen, CEO of the label, released a statement claiming, “I want to extend my sincere thanks to Michael and Nicole for their commitment to the house and its successful evolution into a leading force in the contemporary marketplace. I am confident in their future and wish them all the best.”
Though the married couple have no replacement as of now, according to Style.com, the company’s in-house team will be working on the 2015 collection that would have previously been a duty of the fashion duo. The decision to leave was without drama and the couple declared their thanks and love for the label, all while saying there are other opportunities they wish to be a part of outside of Helmut Lang.
We wish the dynamic duo good luck on their endeavors, though we doubt they need it.

Milan fashion week proved to be quite a treat, with a little side of controversy (Katy Perry had some choice words). The collections and designers did not fail and have given us a lot to look forward to and a lot of inspiration for outfits. Due to this, we have decided to compile a guide to this years best moments in Milan.
Let’s begin with the most shocking moment of Milan fashion week. At the Moschino fashion show, Rita Ora and Katy Perry were set to appear. However, Katy showed up almost an hour late and the repercussion made headlines. Katy was booed by annoyed fashionistas and photographers alike. She then retaliated with some not so nice words and took her seat.
Fendi had quite a week. A fan favorite, model Cara Delevingne, walked down the runway sporting an odd accessory that had the whole room buzzing. The small plush doll seen in her hand is a mini me of none other than Karl Lagerfeld. The doll is now being called Bag Boy Karlito and is a great statement accessory to have.
Annex reported on this shortly after it took place, for the full article click here.
Dolce & Gabbana:
The floral print was all the talk in the audiences as this ensemble brings a revamped vintage feel to it. Fashion-wise, this look kept people talking long after the collection left the runway.

Step aside Heidi Klum and Gisele Bundchen, the Jenner sisters are rocking it on the cover of Marie Claire Mexico! The dynamic duo posed in Tory Burch as well as PAVON, and were interviewed about their busy lifestyle and their upbringing. Kylie explained her obsession with her sister by claiming, ”I would follow her everywhere she went. We would sleep in the same bed. If she got up in the middle of the night, I got up of the middle of the night. I literally couldn’t leave her side. We even matched everything we wore.”
Cue the “awww’s.”
The sisters each have their focus at the moment, careers which they hope will bloom. Kylie’s love lies in design and possibly an acting career. Her interview revealed, ”Right now I love designing and I want to pursue that career once I turn 18, but acting is something I would regret not giving a chance when I’m older, so I would love to try it and see if I like it.” Kendall speaks of her passion and love for fashion explaining how she “Always enjoyed watching and looking at high fashion models and supermodels. I always wanted to be them. Even as a kid, I remember always looking at my mom’s magazines. I would look up to them and I thought they were so beautiful and they seemed very elegant and cool. It’s just something I really wanted to be.”
Looks like these two ladies have a lot to look forward to…

Alright fashion week followers, if you’ve been keeping track of the fashion week dates you’ll know London Fashion Week just wrapped up, now it’s Milan’s turn to show what it’s got and already it’s the most talked about. Thursday’s Fendi show was a jaw dropper, but the best part was seeing Cara Delevingne walking down the runway in an amazingly enormous fur hood carrying a small, very furry, Karl Lagerfeld doll. What better way to show her love for the fashion guru than to carry a mini replica with her on the way down the runway?
Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director for Fendi, posed with Cara after the show in a picture she posted to Instagram with the caption ”With the one and only @karllagerfeld and his mini me #doubletrouble @fendi_official.” Cara has been growing in the fashion world and with her adorable personality she’s hard not to love. The only question now is where do we get the mini-Karl and is his plush twin this years new hot fashion accessory???

The Kardashian’s have done it again. Between books, reality shows, cosmetic lines, fragrances and now a baby clothing line we simply can’t keep up with them! The line, which was mommy extraordinaire Kourtney’s idea, is for girls ages 0 to 24 months and will debut at your local Babies ‘R’ Us in March. Kourtney took to Instagram on Sunday posting a sneak peek and captioning the picture, “My dream come true!”
Now we all know the Kardashians have no problem with affording all kinds of luxuries, but the sisters claim the most important part of their line, besides being chic, is being affordable. Kim claims they, “Created a baby line, so there can be super affordable clothes for babies. Kids grow so fast. You need affordable clothes.” The outfits are adorable and definitely fashion forward.
Now all I’d like to know is will they make these outfits in my size too??

Rihanna on the cover of Vogue = Perfection. The edgy, gorgeous singer was interviewed for the March issue, along with a photo shoot that will make your jaw drop. Rihanna talked makeup and wardrobe, explaining one of her unique fashion rules she lives by: ”If I’m wearing a top, I don’t wear a bra. If I’m wearing a bra, I just wear a bra.” This is evident in the issues cover and even more evident than that is how much she rocks the look.
In addition RiRi discusses her love for menswear and why the juxtaposition of a woman wearing mens clothing is so incredibly sexy. She talks about her childhood explaining, “When I was thirteen or fourteen, I didn’t want to wear what my mom wanted me to wear. I was very much a boy in my style, my demeanor. All my friends were guys. I loved things that boys did. I loved being easy with my clothes. I loved wearing hats and scarves and snapbacks on my head. It was my way of rebelling. I wanted to dress like my brother. After a while, it was just easier for Mom to dress us both the same. We wore the same jeans, the same T-shirts.”
A girl who prefers mens clothes and is even sexier in them than in feminine clothing?
