Kim Kardashian Kanye West Vogue Magazine

Photography by Annie Leibowitz

To quote Justin Bieber: never say never. Kim Kardashian finally has her Vogue cover. After years of proverbially taking Anna Wintour‘s sh*t, fashion’s grand high poobah has finally granted the reality star a pass. In the just-released image, Kardashian is pictured in the arms of fiancé Kanye West wearing a wedding dress, her multi-carat engagement ring and accompanied by the caption #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple.

A hashtag on the cover of Vogue. A Kardashian on the cover of Vogue. In this moment, the high-lo universe we call home has come together with surreal cultural clarity. Just let that sink in as you watch Kimye produce the high fashion version of their last collaborative masterpiece below.

Street Style, Paris: 20 beautiful shots of models and fashion week stars outside the Fall 2014 shows


Street Style Paris Fashion Week

After Milan’s colourful and delightfully wacky getups, the street style from outside Paris Fashion Week Fall 2014 is practically sombre in comparison. We mean that in the best way possible. A lack of pastel coats and flamboyant suits just seems to play into that effortlessly cool Parisian style—slouchy pants and sci-fi garb never looked so good.

With all of the blockbuster shows going on, many models were out and about in between shows. Fresh off the Dries Van Noten runway (we’d recognize the show’s dramatic eyeliner from a mile away) Hanne Gaby Odiele was spotted, first on the street and later taking it all in from the comfort of the back seat. Fellow catwalk star, Canadian model Grace Mahary, was feeling especially sassy in leather on leather, creating a good-humoured stick-up with her finger guns. Soo Joo Park was equally playful swinging her coat tails about, showing off her impossibly long gams in high waisted shorts and over the knee socks.

While many of us spent the weekend huddled inside watching the Sochi action, New York Fashion Week kept editors, bloggers and fashion lovers out and about in the cold for the Fall 2014 shows. With all the commuting between venues—from Manhattan to Brooklyn and back again—cozy outerwear and slush-proof footwear was essential.

Fur continues to be a huge trend outside the tents, with everything from bright-blue faux to ’70s shearling to a mod Isabel Marant racoon coat being snapped by our street style photographer, Stefania Yarhi. Eva Chen kept things light and youthful in a super fluffy snowman-esque coat and rainbow-metallic kicks, while Jenna Lyons effortlessly worked the quirky mismatched-yet-tailored style she pioneered.

It’s that time of year again: the fashion crowd has descended on New York City to kick off yet another manic month of fashion shows, street style snaps and hoofing it all over town in heels. Adding fuel to the fashion week frenzy this year is Apple’s “Fashion In Conversation” series of talks with a lineup of industry insiders so impressive, conflicting shows may want to double check those RSVPs. Kicking off the series last night was none other than Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who sat down with host Kinvara Balfour to talk about her career, Lena Dunham as cover girl and favourite designers (sort of). If you couldn’t make it out to the event, you’re in luck—the video will be posted to iTunes at some point, but for the impatient, here are our favourite moments from Anna’s talk.

With the end of fashion week in Toronto marking the close of Spring 2014 show season, it’s time we looked back at all the trends that emerged. As much as the runway sets the pace for what’s to come for the top Spring 2014 trends, the streets play a major role as show-going trendsetters give us the relatable breakdown of how to wear what’s hot next season. Prints take two spots on our top Spring 2014 trends list through those with a painterly quality and those influenced by international cultures. At Hérmes, Rousseau-inspired water lily florals were printed on luxurious fabrics while at Diane Von Furstenberg, dresses and skirts depicting an African wilderness roared. As for fashionable time travel, prepare to keep reminiscing about the youthful 1990s, which haven’t ceased to get reincarnated season after season. Designers like Rodarte, Balmain and Jason Wu have reinvented the decade’s essentials yet again. To help with your daydreaming of long sunny spring days we’ve compiled the ultimate gallery of top Spring 2014 trends as dictated by the runways and our favourite street style stars in New York, London, Milan, Paris and Toronto!

Michael Kors and his high-powered pals support World Hunger Day with a fundraiser, bilboard takeover and more

Last week, designer Michael Kors used his influence to fight the global hunger crisis on official World Hunger Day (October 16). Together with the World Food Programme, the day began with a cleverly orchestrated digital takeover of the billboards at Times Square, which streamed content that raised awareness of his Watch Hunger Stop campaign. The initiative encouraged the world to participate by spreading the word through social media, donating to the cause and purchasing a Kors-designed watch whose sale would fund 100 meals through the World Food Programme.

The designer has also been a huge advocate for God’s Love We Deliver; an organization that prepares tailored meals for people with severe illnesses in the city he calls home. Last year, a $5 million donation he made helped in the renovation of the organization’s facility, which in recognition was re-named to “The Michael Kors Building.” God’s Love We Deliver held its annual Golden Heart Awards to cap off World Food Day with stars from film, fashion, and political circles coming together to celebrate notable community contributions.

And just when we thought we’d seen the last of Milan Fashion Week prints, the ever-popular trend has been taken to new heights in today’s latest batch of street style photos from outside the Spring 2014 shows.

On the final day of Milan Fashion Week, photographer Sophie Mhabille spotted brave fashion attendees playing up their favourite popping pieces. Milan-based Russian fashionista Zhanna Romashka epitomized this trend in a colour-block witty printed dress by Giulia Rositani, a blue beret and mustard yellow polka dot print neckerchief. The two Annas of the fashion world were also spotted in print-filled ensembles. While Anna Wintour looked prim and proper (as usual) in a floral print dress, leave it to fashion eccentric Anna Dello Russo to pull off a head to toe Fay Spring 2014 look, complete with a lustworthy snoopy print jacket.

Street Style, New York: 53 photos of style stars (and Barbara Walters!) braving the heat outside Spring 2014 fashion week

Despite the scorching heat wave, street style regulars were definitely into leather on day six of New York Fashion Week Spring 2014.

Many fashion enthusiasts layered classic leather jackets or vests over their summery outfits, but Miroslava Duma and blogger Chiara Ferragni rocked the leather trend by pulling out maxi and studded mini respectively.

The Beckerman sisters joined in on the leather-clad fun. While Samantha Beckerman opted for a pleated black skirt and a Marc Jacobs Mickey Mouse sweater, Cailliane went rocker chic in a Rodarte black and red-fringed leather vest and Mickey printed leggings. Style to spare in duplicates, those girls.

Accessories were definitely making a statement on the streets. From Leandra Medine’s colourful arm candy to a furry black and blue clutch adding texture to a head to toe black ensemble, accessories were stealing the spotlight. Even the much-coveted mini Chanel hula-hoop purse made an appearance.

While the vast majority strutted the streets outside New York Fashion Week in killer heels, flats, sneakers and furry Céline sandals were the popular and definitely more comfortable choice. Even Anna Dello Russo, the queen of statement stilettos, wore leather boots, albeit bejewelled and bedazzled.
