A whole month of runway shows in four different cities is coming to a close, wrapping up the debuts of the Fall 2015 collections. And while we saw all kinds of out-there looks — lacy masks at Comme des Garçons, face-painted men in skirts at Vivienne Westwood, and chain-mail dresses at Alexander Wang — there were also totally approachable trends that surfaced show after show. Here are the top five we can’t wait to wear come fall.

Move over, Kimye. The real stars of Paris Fashion Week? Two familiar male models. Actors Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson returned to the runway in full Blue Steel glory, reprising their roles as Derek Zoolander and his nemesis Hansel from the 2001 film Zoolander.

Surprising unsuspecting show-goers at Valentino, Ben sauntered down the catwalk in a brocade suit and black Creeper shoes. Owen followed in an overcoat-topped pajama suit and sneakers. Although fashion insiders are a notoriously tough crowd to shock, the actors were greeted with applause and laughter from the audience. Backstage, they posed with Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, who even managed to crack a smile.

The reappearance of Zoolander and Hansel serves as a lesson to all of us: There’s more to life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking. Like getting a sequel. Filming for Zoolander 2 is set to begin in Rome later this month.

Playdates at the park are as grand as most toddler social calendars get. But when you’re North West and you have a front-row seat at Paris Fashion Week, you must dress the part. And no – overalls from the big-box stores won’t cut it.

Following little Nori’s string of appearances in Givenchy and Chanel, it’s rumored that she had professional help in putting together those petite designer getups. So whether or not this mini Kim Kardashian has a supposed tailor-slash-stylist, there’s no denying she might be the most haute 16-month-old on the planet.

Known for his theatrical runways and bold styles, Jean Paul Gaultier finished his reign of ready-to-wear in true JPG fashion, with an over-the-top, pageant-inspired runway show.

Two weeks ago, Jean Paul announced that he would be giving up his ready-to-wear line to focus solely on couture. His last show, dubbed “Miss Jean Paul Gaultier,” was held during Paris Fashion Week on Saturday. Models were decked out in dramatic makeup, glitter, and sky-high 80s hair. The catwalk – surrounded by popcorn, champagne, and confetti – featured some of the French designer’s most famous looks alongside those belonging to his newest and final Spring 2014 collection.

So who took the crown of Miss Jean Paul Gaultier? None other than model Coco Rocha, following her win with a staged tumble down the stairs. Would we expect anything less? Absolutely not. I mean, this is the guy that once opened his show with a full-fledged Irish step dance. And for that, we’ll miss him dearly.

It’s time to bid farewell to Jean Paul Gaultier’s edgy jackets and slick dresses. Yesterday, the designer announced via a letter to WWD that his men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections will end following his Spring-Summer 2015 season. Instead, the designer will devote himself to haute couture, the brand’s powerhouse perfume, and other projects. In Gaultier’s own words:

For some time, I have found true fulfillment in working on the haute couture, and it allows me to express my creativity and my taste for research and experimentation. At the same time the world of ready-to-wear has evolved considerably. Commercial constraints, as well as the frenetic pace of collections don’t leave any freedom, nor the necessary time to find fresh ideas and to innovate.

Although the lines will be missed at Paris Fashion Week, there is an upside: this madcap fashion icon is bound to have a few haute couture surprises up his sleeve.

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.

Following in the footsteps of A-list counterparts JLaw and Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart has chopped off her long locks – and it looks good.

The Twilight star and former sweetheart of Robert Pattinson debuted her perfectly messy pixie cut yesterday at Chanel’s Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014/15 show in Paris. Her shorter style also sported a hint of orange, said to be the result of a grown-out dye job from the actress’s upcoming role in American Ultra.

Shocking? Maybe if it were Jennifer Aniston, but from Kristen Stewart, we’ve come to expect the unexpected.

Lately, it seems like everyone is talking about Cara Delevingne. Why? Well, between perfecting the ultimate eyebrows, posting amazing Instagrams, and having a slew of A-list besties, she struts her stuff on some of the most revered catwalks in the fashion business.

Or maybe just an aversion to crowded seating. Either way, Condé Nast’s artistic director did the unthinkable this morning at Valentino’s F/W 2014 show: She sat in the second row.

I’m just going to give you all a moment to process that, and then collect yourselves.


Good? Okay. Apparently, Anna voluntarily moved back to, get this, give her front-row seat to a writer (a writer, you guys) named Sarah Mower, who was reviewing the show for Vogue.com. And it gets even better. According to Bryanboy’s Twitter feed, Anna was asked by PR assistants to move back to the front but wouldn’t budge.

The devil wears Prada? More like the most selfless boss ever.

It looks like the ultra preppy aren’t the only ones rocking the popped collar these days. Thanks to street-style photos by Nam of STREETFSN, we’ve been seeing the trend at both Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks.

Although a popped collar brings the cotton polo shirt to mind, that isn’t what’s happening here. Instead, street-style photos show the collar of a button-front shirt strategically poking out from under a turtleneck sweater or a crewneck sweatshirt with a tied handkerchief.

Is it a clever way of beating the winter chill? Or is it just a passing trend that looks uncomfortably snug around the neckline? We’ll just have to wait and see.
