Not that we mind, but we've seen our fill of glamorous dresses on the red carpet. So we always appreciate when someone goes for the unexpected. At Thursday's EssenceBlack Women in Hollywood luncheon, that person was Zendaya, bringing a luxurious take on loungewear straight to the event. OK, we're pretty sure her silk Thakoonseparates — a longline vest and jumpsuit — aren't actually pajamas, but the laid-back vibe and fabric conjure up images of the most glamorous kind of sleepwear. Of course, adding sleek white heels and a handful of jewels by AS29 and John Hardy give it the Hollywood finish it needs. Just read on for a glimpse of the look that just might...

16 Things You Need to Know About Moschino’s Punk Rock Fall ’16 Show

When Jeremy Scott has anything to do with a collection, we always prepare for the best kind of weird: Powerpuff Girls, Looney Toons, oversize teddy bears — that's what the Moschinomagic is made of. But for Fall '16, the creative director decided to switch things up, going darker and a tad kookier with a punk-rock-inspired collection. As guitar-heavy music played in the background, models walked down the runway in leather and chains and later danced a bit in burned dresses that were — literally — smoking. And while we'd love to get into detail on the skeleton styles, cigarette embellishments, and a full-on chandellier dress, it's kinda something you have to see for yourself. Look through to...

As if Scott didn't drive the theme home enough, there were also earrings shaped like cigarettes.

No outfit at LFW was complete without a necktie. Seen everywhere from Roksanda toTopshop, a black or white bow tied tightly at the neck added a prim touch to blouses, suits, and even coats. Things got more bohemian at Temperley, where long scarves and pussy bow blouses...

The Best Street Style Looks From Milan Fashion Week

9

If you thought the style pack would tire now more than halfway through their biggest month of the year, you've underestimated their love of fashion. The street style set hit the ground in Milan for another round of shows, armed with statement jackets and notice-me accessories. Of all the cities on the Fashion Month tour, Milan always brings a playfully luxurious tilt to the looks — designer handbags in bold colors, wraps and stoles thrown effortlessly over coats and blouses, and pretty day dresses by the dozen.

Miuccia Prada Takes Back the Corset

Photo: Prada Fall 2016; Horst P. Horst’s Mainbocher Corset, taken for Vogue in 1939.   Something about Miuccia Prada’s collections brings out the fashion scholar in all of us. Sphinxlike in her pronouncements, the designer prefers to let the clothes speak for themselves—and what a wealth of material she provided for deconstruction for Fall 2016 on her accessory-laden models. Many of them wore loosely laced corsets cinched with looped belts from which hung more small treasures—that recalled antique chatelaines. Scarlett O’Hara would have smirked at such plain utilitarian stays: Prada showed practical white versions, as well as denim and knit iterations. Not only that, but she brought them out from under. Clearly support, rather than seduction, was her point. Keeping things together is,...

Moschino Sent a Literal Chandelier Down the Runway, Because Why Not?

GETTY

Jeremy Scott presented Milan's ultimate statement piece today when he unveiled a chandelier dress during his Moschino show. Yes, really, he dressed a model in a light fixture:

Very possibly the only chandelier dress you'll see this season. From @Moschino #MFW pic.twitter.com/dIF2Qp6SKM

It's perfectly Beauty and the Beast:

The theme of his show was "It's Lit," so he also had Anna Cleveland walk in a dress that was on fire:

The Final Flourish

ARMY SURPLUS
Fashion's badge of honor for spring comes gold, glittering, and piled on. Top off a khaki button-down with an excess of necklaces, or play up the utilitarian nature of the shirt with a quirky pin (or three). Seek out pieces with rubies and diamonds for an extra dose of shine.
