Look of the Week: Poppy Delevingne’s London Fashion Week Style Streak

Typically, our Look of the Week features one drop-dead gorgeous model, one runway-ready outfit, and a heavy dose of style inspiration.  But as we learned from Poppy Delevingne this week, sometimes one swoon-worthy outfit just isn’t enough.

In a Look of the Week first, the British model and recent front row fixture is being honored for the entirety of her London Fashion Week wardrobe — six specific looks to be exact.  Kicking off the London festivities with a dinner at Chiltern Firehouse, Poppy demonstrated her trademark blend of edgy and uptown in a Chanel tweed jacket paired with a sheer laser-cut jumpsuit and the brand’s limited-edition Runway Perfume Bottle Plexiglass clutch bag.  At the Moda Operandi party the following night, the model opted for an architectural blue shift dress and printed Sophia Webster heels, only to channel the softness of spring in a blue ombre shirt dress and graphic peep-toe booties at the Burberry Prorsum show the following morning.

Next up, it was the Anya Hindmarch show, where she kept things casual in a chunky multi-colored fur coat paired with dark skinny jeans, a checkered pajama shirt, converse sneakers and the brand’s whimsical Bazooka Imperial Clutch.  The newlywed also impressed in a Bella Freud for Fred Perry sweater and Matthew Williamson feather skirt, along with a Stella McCartney Resort stripped gown later in the week.

If we didn’t know any better, we’d say Poppy is vying to become Britain’s next big style icon— a role she is more than worthy of in these spot-on looks!

 

Behati Prinsloo Heads Back to Work in Her Teeny Bikini

The first day of fall may be fast approaching (Sunday to be exact), but that hasn’t stopped Behati Prinsloo from flaunting her flawless bikini body.  After enjoying a few blissful months as a newlywed, the Victoria’s Secret Angel is getting back on her model grind this week with a Victoria’s Secret swim photo shoot in Malibu, Ca.  The 25-year-old appeared to be having a blast on set as she pranced around in a cheeky white fringe bikini while holding a blanket behind her head. The supermodel was also seen posing in a leopard-print two piece and a tie-dye number later in the day.  What can we say, married life suits her well!

Speaking of married life, it was revealed earlier this month that Behati and Adam Levine are currently in negotiations to buy a lovers loft in New York’s Soho area for an estimated $4.55 million. Located on Greene Street, the spacious three-bedroom, two-bathroom loft is 2,700-square-feet and comes with 13ft. high tin ceilings.  Not too shabby.

In the meantime, the couple have been enjoying some quality time together in both abroad and in LA.  Most recently, the two were spotted enjoying a romantic evening out in London, where they coordinated their style in matching ‘his and her’ leather jackets and burgundy Dr. Martens boots.

Scroll through the photos below for a behind-the-scenes look at Behati’s bikini body at work!

Taylor Swift’s adding yet another award to her arsenal. But, this one has nothing to do with number one hits, singing about her exes, or even making tons of money.

Be Prepared for a Major Model Overhaul at the Newsstands This Month!

 

When Vogue put three supermodels on the cover of its September issue, the  fashion industry hailed it as the “return of the supermodel.”  We however, were a bit skeptical.  After all, this wasn’t the first time a major American magazine tapped a model for its all-important September cover, only to spend the next several months shooting TV and film stars.  After a quick look at this month’s featured cover girls though, we may need to reconsider our position.

Shop the Look: Adriana Lima’s Fashion Week Street Style

We’ve always kind of envisioned fashion week as a battle ground of sorts— the pushing and shoving between photographers, the maneuvering of tight, overcrowded spaces, the overall lack of sleep and energy.  So perhaps that’s why we were so immediately drawn to Adriana Lima‘s street-style look at the Marc Jacobs spring 2015 show last week.  Prior to slipping into her shaggy black wig, the supermodel displayed her prowess for off-duty style, stepping out in a look that you might call “style war–ready.”  A onetime menswear favorite, camouflage print is quickly becoming part of a woman’s everyday uniform — the non-girly girl’s answer to lush floral prints.  Here, Adriana gives her simple black shirt dress a edgy lift by layering it with an oversized camouflage print jacket, a mini utilitarian satchel and studded sandals—the perfect mix of sportiness and ladylike poise. This weekend, take on the urban jungle in similar pieces hand-picked by our editors directly from our new favorite shopping app, Spring. Check then out in the slideshow below:

Gemma Ward Returns to the Runway After an 8 Year Hiatus

Marking one of the biggest highlights of the fashion season thus far, supermodel Gemma Ward returned to the catwalk—opening Prada’s Spring 2015 show today—after an 8-year hiatus.  The Australian model, who once worked with every top designer from Karl Lagerfeld to Valentino and Calvin Klein, famously bid adieu to modeling in 2006 to focus on her acting career, which included minor roles in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” and “The Great Gatsby.”  In 2013, Gemma signed with IMG Models Australia making many people wonder if she was planning a comeback — a rumor that we now suspect may have added weight.

As if Gemma’s return wasn’t treat enough, Miuccia also brought back Dutch supermodel Lara Stone to close today’s show— her first in nearly three years— following a lineup that include such fashion week regulars as Julia Nobis, Ondria Harden and Lexi Boling.

Not only does Gemma and Lara’s appearance solidify the fact that models are making their return to the spotlight (look no further than Vogue’s September cover or the major models who walked in other SS15 shows, like Abbey Lee Kershaw, Kristen Owen, or Maggie Rizer for proof), but it also gives us hope that the trend of casting celebrities and “It” girls as the face of major fashion brands has finally reached its end.  Seriously, Hollywood scions are great and all, but can we really compare them to pros like Gemma and Lara?  We think not.

Kendall Jenner Makes Her Milan Fashion Week Debut Alongside Cara Delevingne

Kendall Jenner may have skipped London Fashion Week this season, but that doesn’t mean her Fashion Month is over.

After hinting at another possible runway appearance earlier this week, the American model made her official Milan Fashion Week debut walking in Fendi’s spring/summer 2015 show.  Tapped by Karl Lagerfeld himself, Kendall took to the catwalk this morning in a pair of brown suede harem-style pants, an abstract print top featuring tiny rips throughout, and a patent leather tote complete with the brand’s famed fox fur clip-on keychain.
