Our Fashion Director on the Crop-Top Trend

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
I’ve never been one to show a lot of skin – I typically gravitate toward things that are voluminous and flowy. In fact, I think I was sixteen the last time I wore anything stomach-revealing. So why am I so tempted to try out the new crop-top trend? Granted, these aren’t your 80s tops that require a six-pack and gold chains (unless, of course, you’re Rihanna). No, the new breed of micro tops are sexy yet subtle and show just a sliver of skin. Thinking of testing the midriff-baring waters? Take you style cues from these fashion-forward celebrities – I know I am.

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

I’ll admit it: I’m obsessed – and it takes a lot for me to become obsessed with someone’s style. But if there’s one person we should all be taking style cues from, it’s Russia’s pint-sized It girl and Buro 24/7 editor, Miroslava (Mira) Duma. JackieSays_08-29-13

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

Only a handful of fashion items ever make it to iconic status. Among the few: Hermès’s Birkin bag, Burberry’s trench, DVF’s wrap dress, and, of course, Salvatore Ferragamo’s Vara shoe, which turned 35 this summer.

Our Fashion Director Sounds Off On the Newest Celeb-Turned-Designer

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

While a lot of our favorite celebrities – Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham, and Beyoncé, just to name a few –  have made the leap into the fashion world, one I didn’t see coming was Cameron Diaz. But in a surprising move, she’s stepped up as Artistic Director of Pour La Victoire (a Rue favorite).

Not only will Diaz be designing handbags and shoes, but as a co-owner of the label, she’ll also be involved with the brand’s creative, marketing, and advertising.

“I don’t do endorsements really. This is completely different. Being influential in a brand and in its [advertising] campaigns interests me,” Diaz told WWD.com. “I love fashion. It’s a large part of my life. What I wear is looked at. It influences what other people wear because that’s just the world we live in.”

One thing’s for sure: with Cam’s A-lister friends, these new Pour La Victoire designs are about to get a lot of exposure.
