Shop the Look: Kate Moss Gets Tied Up in Spring 2015′s Seventies Obsession

Even if you only managed to catch a few of the spring/summer ’15 shows this past month, you wouldn’t have failed to miss that the 1970s are back a big way.  So big in fact, that next season’s most prevalent trend has already seeped into the wardrobe of one of our favorite style-setters: Kate Moss.

Spotted out in London yesterday, the supermodel channeled the decade with modern flair, pairing a pussy-blow blouse made famous by the likes of Jane Birkin and Jerry Hall back in the day, with an appropriate pair of black flare jeans, chic wedge heels and cat-eye shades.  By focusing on more seasonally appropriate shades of rich burgundy and black separates, Kate keeps the look feeling fresh and ideal for the season ahead— not to mention entirely seductive!

The Top 5 Most Popular Runway Models of Spring/Summer ’15

While fashion month seems like a grueling four weeks for editors and buyers, it’s perhaps most exhausting for the models. On top of all the travel, these hard-working ladies also face early call times and late-night fittings — making sleep but a distant memory for most.  Needless to say, it takes a special breed of model to walk dozens of shows per year, but the ones who can pull off the impressive feat hold a special place in the business for seasons to come.

So, who was this year’s top catwalker? Following the end of Paris Fashion Week, we tasked ourselves (with a little help from Models.com) to narrow down the top models of the season— a list that is based on the sheer number of shows the model walked from start to finish.  See who took home this year’s top 5 spots after the jump!

Is Liu Wen the New Face of Apple?

 

Between last month’s Silicon Valley conference and the star-studded launch party held at the Colette concept store during Paris Fashion Week, it’s no secret that Apple has its sights set on the fashion crowd for the launch of its first smart watch due  out early next year.  That being said, we’re hardly surprised to hear from the rumor mill this morning that the tech giant may now be turning to one of fashion’s most recognizable supermodels to help front its first campaign.

It all started after Chinese supermodel Liu Wen posted a cryptic Instagram photo of herself trying on an Apple Watch at the Colette pop-up store in Paris on Tuesday with the caption, “”My second meeting with the Apple Watch, this time in Colette! The first time? Well, you’ll see soon.”

While the snapshot doesn’t mention a campaign specifically, it does make the most sense for both parties. As the international face of Estee Lauder, Tiffany & Co.and Coach (to name just a few), Liu’s commercial appeal is hard to ignore.  And let’s not forget that she was just named the first Chinese model on Forbes‘ list of the world’s highest-paid supermodels.

Of course, for the time being it’s all just speculation.  Still it seems likely that this could very well be Liu’s next big campaign— an event we’ll be sure to keep you posted on in the coming weeks.

Shop Her Style: Ming’s Xi’s Sporty Separates

No matter where in the world Ming Xi may be, we can guarantee that she’s not blending in with the rest of the crowd!  Very few people, even models, are capable of achieving such amazing sporty street style looks – yet Ming is able to effortlessly mix cool and sporty trends with a sometimes-not-so-subtle nod to more, shall we say upscale labels.  Whether she’s pairing a crop top with velour sweatpants or rocking sporty short shorts with a football jersey – we LOVE how Ming subtly hints at “normcore” and then elevates the trend with touches of Chanel tweed and a Fendi Buggy. Take a cue from this street style icon and scroll through the slideshow below for sporty Ming-approved pieces to spice up your wardrobe this season!

Lindsay Ellingson Shares an Exclusive Look at Her Night With New Yorkers for Children

Last night, Cipriani 42nd Street played host to a dazzling crowd of philanthropic New Yorkers, all of whom gathered for a night of recognition and celebration held in honor of the 15th Annual New Yorkers for Children Fall Gala.  Despite the fact that most of the fashion set was still in Paris, the annual star-studded affair managed to gather a several dozen VIPs— namely Girls‘ Jemima Kirke, designers Adam Lippes and Rachel Roy, and Victor Cruz— top fundraisers, and even a pack of gorgeous models that included Selita Ebanks, Lindsay Ellingson, and Elettra Wiedemann.

While some were stepping out as first-time supporters, all possessed an apparent interest in the children — some even a personal connection.  ”I’m a product of the foster care system and that’s why this evening is so special to me,” said Selita, who chose a fringed Chloé dress for the occasion.  ”There are nearly 13,000 youth in foster care in NYC today and tonight, I’m here to tell them that there situation does not have to define their future.  Tonight is about showing these kids that they can chase their dreams and become successful— foster care is only a small chapter of their lives.”
