In this edition of Red Carpet Report Card, Nicole Richie will be graded on her Anthony Vaccarello Spring 2012 look worn to the 9th Annual Style Awards at Lincoln Center. See how she looked after the jump.
Style star Kate Bosworth is no stranger to looking fab, especially when it comes to an editorial. You may not know one movie she’s been in, but the girl sure can work the glossies. Right now, we are obsessing over her editorial and interview with StyleCaster, photographed by David Mushegain. Stylist Cher Coulter dressed Bosworth in some of her favorites, including threads from Isabel Marant and a spectacular yellow suit by Costume National. Click through for the gallery.
After a public outcry about last week’s High Waisted Shorts debacle, ladies (and some men) have retaliated. The request? That men will stop fearing their gams and start wearing short shorts. The man’s upper thigh, when shown correctly, can be a beautiful thing. And in the words of one sexual predator lady friend of mine, “It makes men feel vulnerable.” No really though, it takes a man with confidence to try it, and it’s so sexy when you (yes, you) pull it off well. Ten designers agree:
With 4th of July around the corner, we at FashionIndie are thinking about what to wear on our big day of Independence. Obviously red, white and blue and stars and stripes are on the brain, but this mix can be tricky to master. But not to worry because with the right attitude and perfect pieces, you can look patriotic AND chic at the same time. Check out our guide below with 20 pieces to inspire independence and watch people set off fireworks in style.
While we prepare to dance it out and walk it off tonight for the launch of DJ Chachi’s FashionIndie Mixtape Volume 3, we’ve rounded up some shoes that look like a trip. Or that will trip you. The highest most death defyingly crafted shoes make for the most impressive when you wear them with grace. Like Lady Gaga.
If you’re walking off for a pair of Manolos tonight wearing any of these, you best bring it, because if you do it right, you win hands down. Just sayin’.
Designers Gabrielle Thompson and Shannon Gunn believe shoes should be wearable art. Their shared passion for luxury materials and strong, structured silhouettes led to the launch of their Australian footwear label tom gunn. Described as “sophisticated with an edge,” tom gunn shoes are constructed with materials from the top Italian tanneries and suppliers and have been used by the likes of Prada, Marni, CoSTUME NATIONAL and Gucci. I got a chance to to ask Thompson and Gunn about how they got started, where they find inspiration and how their label has become a shoe industry stand-out.
No. Deepest apologies. Tom Gunn is more of a sandal than a scandal. It is a brand of shoes from the land down under by co-designers Gabrielle Thompson and Shannon Gunn. I’m a little concerned that the name is so close to our favorite motivational fashion consultant, but if Prada, Costume National, Marni and Gucci are all using these heels, I’m sure they’ll make it work.
Tom Nicon, a 22-year-old French model is the latest runway walker to mysteriously fall to his death. Nicon has appeared in shows for Versace, Louis Vuitton, Gareth Pugh and Costume National. A tribute to Nicon is being rumored to be in the works at Louis Vuitton.
Ennio Capasa decided to go with a collection of deconstructed suits for the grungier Costume National fans. The label’s Fall 2010 menswear collection saw fuzzy-sleeved suit coats, baggy drawstring trousers, frayed edges a a bunch of incorporated knitwear. I’m excited what Costume National has in store for us women this season!
Turtlenecks are back and Ennio Capasa says so. The Costume National Fall 2010 menswear collection was undoubtedly trendy: frayed edges, loose, drawstring trousers and furry patchwork served as “it” elements for the collection. Keeping things dark, Ennio let his variety of avant garde patterns (which certainly need an up-close view for deciphering) and textures do a season’s worth of talking, and boy, they’re talking loud.
