Over the Top with Taupe

I wore black Chanel before going goth became cool again. I painted with green at the same time Kate Moss did. When it comes to nail polish, I'll try just about any colour. But this season I'm sticking to just one, Over the Taupe.

Part of the OPI Bright Pair Collection, Over the Taupe has been spotted on the hands of Hollywood's fashion junkies such as Sandra Bullock, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale and Lily Allen. So if you aren't sporting it already, now is the time to go Taupe.

So In It's Out

This next trend is so in it's out. Underwear as outwear brings a hint of the bedroom onto the street. Worn under a sheer blouse or chunky cardigan, 2010's pastel lingerie looks will bring unexpected sass to any outfit.

If you aren't yet ready to ditch your pants entirely in true Lady Gaga form, try this trend with Phillip Lim. This champagne silk-satin soft-cup bra with black polka dots is made of 97% silk and 7% elastane. With a stitched trim on top and adjustable lilac back, the 3.1 by Phillip Lim Polka-dot silk-satin bra is available at Net-A-Porter for $85.

Wear yours today and watch heads turn. If it feels good why keep it hidden?

Alexander Wang Wear

When dressing, I always consider balance. Done well, it's the right amount of effortless chic combined with unexpected details. For such a perfectly styled cool look, Alexander Wang is all that and then some.

Straight from Alexander Wang's 2010 runway is this grey cinched sweatshirt with leather shoulder cap accents in tawny. Complete with belt, the sweatshirt is lined in 100% silk. Pair it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans, and your hair in a messy braid like that worn by every Wang model. Get yours now at Nordstrom's stores for $595.

Big Girl in the Big City

Ashley Falcon has done something most fashion interns only dream of doing. She got noticed. And it wasn't for jamming the photocopier or sending a Burberry outfit back Prada. No, it was Ashley's style that was noticed by Marie Claire's Editor-in-Chief, Joanna Coles.

Joanna Coles loved her intern's fashion sense so much, that just a few months ago Ashley was given her very own column in the magazine. Called Big Girl in a Skinny World, Ashley brings a whole new perspective to the magazine. Through her work she proves looking good has little to do with size, and everything to do with attitude and often a dose of patience.

I may be a skinny girl but I'm so into this big girl's world.

The Future of LV Collaboration

She is into art and photography, and she has an eye for design. And now, I bring you a fashion word from Miss Stephanie.

Louis Vuitton has just announced its 2010 campaign duo: supermodel Lara Stone and superphotographer Steven Meisel.

Lara Stone

The collaboration represents a return to fashion tradition for the luxury brand. A previous campaign produced by photographer Annie Leibovitz featured unlikely fashion celebrities such as Mikail Gorbachev, Keith Richards and Sean Connery. The photos received plenty of buzz, and managed to blur the line between portrait photography and advertising.

Sean Connery

But in the fashion world, nothing is constant. Miesel is back at the helm, and he is sure to create yet another fresh look to represent the historical brand. I look forward seeing the results of the campaign.

Thanks to Carly Ostroff for featuring a guest post on Fashion Finds PR. Please visit MISS STEPHANIE for more visual inspiration in art, photography, design and fashion.

Mulleavys Right on Target

December 20th is marked in my calender because Target is about to a lot more etheral with a Rodarte line from Kate and Laura Mulleavy. I especially love these Mulleavys because their futuristic meets romantic line started just as any good story should -with just a box of fine dresses, two heads filled with big dreams and one trip to New York.

It began with Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, Rogan, Richard Chai, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon and Tracy Feith, and now finally the edgy-chic Rodarte asethetic will be available through Target's Go Internal line. The 55 piece collection includes all things Rodarte, from high waisted tights finished with bows to fancy bra tops. Prices range from $9.99 for knee socks to $79.99 for a faux leopard jacket. In their first collection for Target stores, the always fabulous Mulleavy sisters were inspired by their all time favourite movies like Bonnie and Clyde, Rosemary's Baby and Harold and Maude.

Shades of Nude

While I can personally assure you that there is no such thing as too much black, Spring 2010 is very much a pastel season. Dresses are dreamy and flowy, blouses are light and covered in ruffles. From Fendi, to Burberry, to Valentino, each designer has their own take on how to keep you pretty in pastels.


Fendi models walked the runways in chunky shoes paired with short frilly dresses in all shades of nude.

Burberry Prorsum

At Burberry, Christopher Bailey created belted pastel coloured looks with heavy ruching and towering strappy platform shoes.


Models' statement dresses at Valentino were layered in ruffles of soft cream chiffon. Black shoes provided the perfect contrast to these fun flirty looks.
