It’s safe to say that skinny jeans are on their way out. You won’t look “so 2011″ in them just yet. But in due time, my friends. There is a comparable alternative, but if you’re really looking for something different, you’re in luck.
Ah, the SAG Awards. It’s like the forgotten middle child between the Golden Globes and the Oscars…but that doesn’t mean the red carpet shouldn’t get some love. There’s actually been quite a few fabulous looks at the SAG Awards from years past (like when Anna Gunn proved that fit really matters and killed it in the accessories department with that Edie Parker clutch, for example) as well as ones we wish we forgot (re: crop topping while pregnant). So let’s see what went down on that red carpet last night…
Balenciaga City. Givenchy Nightingale. Proenza Schouler PS1. Chanel 2.55. What do these all have in common? They’re classic handbags, signature to their designer. But fashion seems to be moving in this direction where we don’t necessarily need a big designer name attached to our bag to make the investment. The perfect example of this is what I like to call the new classic — M2MALLETIER.
Every year, I get crazy excited for the CFDA Awards because it’s sort of like the Met Ball’s more casual little sister — everyone is fashion is there and the looks are anything but boring (unlike the Oscars). Now the CFDA is really only about American designers / American fashion (it does stand for Council of Fashion Designers of AMERICA, after all), so what about the rest of the world? You know my obsession with British designers (and and accents) so let’s celebrate the British Fashion Awards that occurred just yesterday by judging the red carpet.
