Barbara Martelo was spotted in between couture shows during fashion week in Paris, France. The Vogue Espana stylist wore her new go-to brand, Saint Laurent. She chose a pair of the Skinny Leather Pants in Rouge with their sandals and belt.
Barbara has slowly been drifting away from her go-to labels like Balmain and Givenchy lately for Saint Laurent. I have noticed her wear more and more pieces from the fashion house since Hedi Slimane was appointed. I can’t blame her, I think Hedi makes such amazing pieces that work for day-to-day life as well as for evening events. I hope to keep seeing her in more pieces, like the more detailed leather pants and jeans from the Men’s Fall ’13 collection. Click here to purchase these pants from Neiman Marcus for $2890.
Nicole Richie was spotted leaving her hotel in New York City. She has really been on the move the past few months. She has been going back and forth from coast to coast quite a few times. For this outing, Nicole wore a pair of black Saint Laurent Leather Pants with a blazer, an Ozzy Osborne t shirt and some patent ankle boots.
Nicole has really been stepping it up with her style lately. I just love the slick back hair as well as the whole look. It is strong, but it doesn’t feel severe because of the graphic t shirt. You can click here to purchase these pants from NET-A-PORTER for $2890.

The new Saint Laurent collection is the male adjacent to the gypsy chic of the women’s Spring 2013 collection. Unlike the women’s, the men’s collection went more grunge with a tron of layering, plaid and distressing. To polish up some of the looks, Hedi Slimane paired some of them with leather pants and tailored jackets, as well as bringing back out his signature skinny suits.
I have to admit that I am actually quite proud that Hedi Slimane re-designed the whole aesthetic of the fashion house. I find the current inspirations would look lost with the previous aesthetic. With the current renaming and design, it works together harmoniously without sacrificing the soul of the fashion house. I am also loving that Hedi is filling the void of Christophe Decarnin right now with the distressing and denim for me. Ohh how I missed those days. See the collection yourself below.
Taylor Swift performs on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve in Times Square where she performed both “We Are Never Getting Back Together” and “I Knew You Were Trouble” before sharing a kiss at midnight with boyfriend Harry Styles.
For her performance, Taylor wore a pair of Saint Laurent’s leather pants with a red sequin IRO jacket. Overall, I’m not the biggest fan of YSL’s re-branding, but I do think these are a great pair of leather pants! I like that Taylor is wearing some edgier, designer pieces now and it’s fun to see her style change. You can buy a similar version of these in denim online from Saint Laurent for $570.
