This might’ve been the year that the modeling industry began to awaken to a broader and more diverse definition of beauty. Behind the scenes, the safety and working conditions of models were exposed via social media by people like Sara Ziff and the Model Alliance, Cameron Russell, and James Scully. In response, LVMH and Kering, leaders in the luxury sector, penned a model charter. Front of house, there were changes aplenty as well. According to Forbes, Kendall Jennerhas surpassed Gisele Bündchen as the highest-paid model. Then there was the omnipresence of the Hadid sisters, the return of the supers, the arrival of the sons and daughters of the supers, and too many new faces to count. How to make sense of it all? We turned to you, dear readers. Here,...

5 Monochromatic Looks To Steal This Season

dior-jade-crop-301r-lede-1511897230

While it’s true that a power suit or the perfect pair of jeans can change your life, occasionally it’s an accessory that makes the biggest impact. Case in point: a colorful watch. A classic timepiece may conjure up images of black bands and silver faces, but fashion’s current love affair with bold prints and dynamic hues has paved the way for a fresh approach. We took inspiration from candy-colored timepieces to create five fresh monochrome moments.

twitter

Who needs a fashion show when you have Kim in Calabasas?

Skipping a traditional runway show at New York Fashion Week, Kanye West instead opted for a fresh way to debut his Yeezy Season 6 collection: on paparazzi shots of Kim Kardashian West. The rapper/designer enlisted his wife to showcase his latest designs, which she shared on Twitter and Instagram. According to Kim, the looks were all styled by BAZAAR's global fashion director (and good friend to Kimye), Carine Roitfeld. Sticking with West's signature neutral color palette, the new pieces range from hues of brown, black and gray to a pretty new shade of dusty blue. While some pieces are similar to those in past Yeezy collections (the standard spandex shorts and minimalist...

A Ladylike Puffer Coat? Allow Bella Hadid To Demonstrate

00-story-bella
Today, Bella Hadid upended the Michelin Man’s sartorial claim to fame—the puffer coat—when she wore a dramatically streamlined interpretation of the down jacket in New York. The end result read like a lesson in how cool girls can do winter layering in a ladylike way. It was also a marked departure for Hadid, who tends to gravitate toward the tomboy side of the outerwear spectrum, though she rounded out the feminine tailoring with her own streetwise slant on things. Hadid’s coat packed enough volume at the shoulder to feel like a leg-of-mutton sleeve, and also hit at the right place to reveal the smart collared shirt underneath. The asymmetric, single-button closure balanced out the prim and proper silhouette, as did the...

Country Star Nikki Lane Performs At Land Of Distraction’s LA Launch

1200x600 (1)
Land Of Distraction is using old roads to forge fashion territory untraveled. The breakout contemporary line saw its launch on November 30th, transforming Los Angeles' Chateau Marmont into a perfect playground for the brand's rebel chic muse. Founder Danita Short and design director Christian Juul Nielsen took threads of inspiration from '70s rock culture and outlaw motorcyclists to create something tailor-made for "the thrill seekers, rule breakers, and path finders" of the world. After cutting his teeth with years at the top houses in couture, Nielsen found himself craving something unrestrained and raw in his designs. "Fashion is getting so contrived and restricted, with so many rules," he said. "We were trying to create something super easy [and] super light that everyone can...
