The Best-Dressed List: Top Looks from July 6 to 12

Each Week, Our Fashion Editor Decides Who Deserves Top Honors

 
Olivia, Victoria, and Emma: Veteran style stars, each with a distinct (and flawless) look that we admire. We typically know what to expect from these fashion mavens, but they still keep us on our toes with offbeat outfit choices.

Though Olivia’s getup isn’t atypical, she switched up her beauty routine with an orange lip and freshly dyed blonde hair. Usually opting for darker shades, Victoria served up a lively colorblocked dress at Wimbledon. Meanwhile, the generally demure Emma stepped out in a macramé bralette in Paris. My opinion? Keep the surprises coming. 

The Best-Dressed List

 

  1. Olivia Palermo in Dior at the label’s Fall 2014 couture show in Paris.
  2. Victoria Beckham at Wimbledon in a dress from her Spring 2015 Collection.
  3. Emma Watson in Valentino at the label’s Fall 2014 couture show in Paris.

A Peek at Peplum: The History Behind the Figure-Flattering Trend

But who was the first to figure out just how flattering this style could be?

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

Paris Fashion Week is about to bid us all adieu. Tear. So let’s take a moment to fall in love (again) with each of these fashion greats.

1. We could say a lot of things about Alexander McQueen but, for now, we’ll just say this: hauntingly beautiful.

2. Can we have a closet full of Lanvin? We promise we’ll take good care of it.

3. Valentino. Because if Jackie O loved it, so do we.

4. Let’s be real. Is there any fashion logo more iconic than Chanel‘s “CC”?

5. We adore Christian Dior. (Who doesn’t?)

Can’t get enough Pinterest inspiration? Check out past boards that caught our eye.

Fashion Books We Love

Fashion Books We LoveWhile most of us have mile-high stacks of Vogue at our desks (for professional purposes only, of course), we do dive into more substantial reading from time to time. Here are our favorite fashion-forward texts:

Nostalgia in Vogue: This compilation includes a selection of Vogue’s famous “Nostalgia” columns published since 2000.

Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life: This controversial account draws on letters and other records to reveal the less-discussed (and scandalous) chapters of this influential designer’s life.

Grace: A Memoir: Vogue Creative Director, former model, and international icon Grace Coddington gives us a witty, blunt narrative of a life lived fashionably.

The Fashion Book: Aptly named, The Fashion Book is a coffee table book to end all others. This A to Z tome takes a comprehensive look at the most important names in fashion, dating all the way back to the 1860s.

The Little Dictionary of Fashion: A Guide to Dress Sense for Every Woman: Penned by the one and only Christian Dior, this indispensable source covers the fashion fundamentals every woman should adhere to.
