David Archuleta was greeting some of his fans in New York after making an appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly. He was wearing the trend of the moment, a pair of waxed jeans. He opted for a pair in a brown color. I actually kind of like these, but the color palette of his outfit kind of makes me think of Halloween. I think he should have stuck to probably a white tee.
I think this is a trend where you have to keep everything else pretty muted when pairing it with a leather jacket. I think Elle Macpherson perfected the leather with wax denim look. Russel Brand was another man who was spotted wearing the trend. Out of these two men, who do you think wore it better?
G-Star just announced that they will be distributing 6 MILLION COPIES of their new Autumn/Winter 2010 issue of their RAW Magazine. It will feature some great inside scope on the brand such as the Liv Tyler and Magnus Carlsen campaign shoots, some capsule collections like their G-Star Raw by Marc Newson and Raw Essentials, New York Fashion Week, and much more info about 3D denim
The magazine will be distributed at G-Star stores and offices as well as many huge newspapers around the world such as the Los Angeles Times, Observer, and Le Monde to name a few. Also…for you lucky G-Star fans in Paris, on October 4th-9th, during Paris Fashion Week, G-Star will have what they call a “RAW Magazine Guerilla Pop-Up Hijack” at the Chanel and Chloé shows and also at main city locations like Rue Etienne Marcel and Palais Garnier. G-Star also did this method during London Fashion week at Victoria Station and at the Sunday Market at the Old Truman Brewery.
Chanel walked this week in Paris and Karl Lagerfeld as usual did not disappoint. He had many outrageous looks this season, particularly the pink feather dress worn by one of the best models, Carmen Kass (this girl can sell sand). For this season, Karl switched up the faux furs from Fall for feathers while still keeping it classic Chanel with the tweeds, muted color palette, and clean silhouettes.
He also featured many great jeans this season. For the women they were printed with an ombre effect and for the men they were left clean. Karl also showed matching head-to-toe looks for both muse, Brad Kroenig and his son. How great is that? Baby Chanel. You can check out some of the looks below from the collection as well as the return of Ines de la Fressange on the Chanel runway.
Heidi Klum held her youngest daughter Lou as she made her way in to see her oldest one, Leni, at karate. Being the Paige Premium lover she is, she was spotted wearing another pair of their leggings. This time she chose to wear the new Lennox for the family outing. I think these are a great take of the panel trend and I think the faded black tone is great. They have a velvet finish with a tuxedo stripe, so they will dress up any look.
I have actually really fallen for faded black/gray jeans. At first I thought it was a wash that was very difficult to wear, but I was proven wrong. I recently got a pair of the Paige Blue Heights in Friction and they are amazing. I didn’t think they would go with a lot, but they do. I definitely recommend them if you haven’t tried.
