See Kate Middleton’s style from this weekend »

It was quite the Kate Middleton-filled weekend with our favourite royal making three official appearances donning some things old, some things new and some things blue.

In honour of Queen Elizabeth II, the royal family paraded down the streets of London for the Trooping The Colour, The Queen’s annual birthday celebrating complete with 1,400 officers, 200 horses and 400 hundred musicians. While Prince William and Prince Charles rode on horseback, the Duchess of Cambridge accompanied Prince Harry and The Duchess of Cornwall in a horse-drawn carriage waving at crowds of onlookers. Stepping out in a second new outfit of the week, Kate once again opted for Alexander McQueen (it’s her third time wearing the British designer brand at the annual event), looking elegant as ever. Dressed in a bespoke icy blue skirt suit, which featured an embroidered crop jacket, the structured peplum detail stylishly accentuated her slight body. Matching accordingly with a Jane Taylor hat, she added pearl jewellery that including a never-before-seen pearl brooch and pearl-dropped earrings by Annoushka, and finished off with a simple taupe box clutch by Alexander McQueen.

The Wizard of Oz is coming to a fashion week near you!

Wizard of Oz Fashion Week

See all the designer sketches here »

For all you Wizard of Oz Mega Fans, September 4, 2014 is a date you are going to want to mark in your calendars. The film’s leading ladies will be transformed high-fashion-style for the film’s 75th Anniversary. Inspired by Dorothy, Glinda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch of the West (we know, we can hardly contain ourselves) Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The Wizard of Oz have teamed with US-based Tonner Doll Collection, plus various designers to create one-of-a-kind 22-inch couture dolls. If you’ve ever thought a green, warty witch couldn’t be glamorous, you’d better think again.

The Wizard of Oz has influenced fashion for decades, from Louis Vuitton’s Follow the Yellow Brick Road-esque dress to Christopher Kane’s rainbow dress of Spring ’14 to Kate Spade gingham pants, the list is endless. But never before have we seen something like this- a heap of our favorite designers re-imagining one of the most popular films of all time! The fashion and costume designers modernizing the looks of the celebrated characters include Trina Turk, Donna Karan, BCBG Max Azria, Chris Benz, Jenny Packham, Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, Lyn Paolo, and Anna Sui- and if the sketches are any indication, this doll collection just may be as covetable as Dorothy’s ruby red slippers themselves. Using elements from the movie, such as Dorothy’s gingham pinafore and the infamous (however, essential) tornado, the designers combined some of today’s greatest styles, including a peplum jumpsuit and eclecticism, into the sketches.

How spring’s ’90s revival is helping one editor deal with her premature age crisis

See the 1990s trend on the runways »

For most of my 20s, I’ve been your archetypal hypochondriac (let’s just say a good old MRI really calms my nerves), but lately, my Woody Allen-like fear of the end has morphed into something even more frightful: the end of my youth. I’ll be 30 next April—a milestone I’ve been dreading since I turned 27 (which, let’s be honest, was traumatic enough). Most say the best is yet to come, but from where I’m sitting, my impending existential grapple with miniskirts has pushed me down a road of teenage wardrobe nostalgia where crushed velvet, neon and over-the-top everything reign supreme.

Fashion’s ’90s streak couldn’t have come at a better time. For me, the ’90s represent a period in my life when my biggest priorities were decorating my room with posters of Leonardo DiCaprio, sneaking into 14A movies like Cruel Intentions and The Craft and lining up outside MuchMusic to see The Backstreet Boys. Fast-forward to today and the ’90s couldn’t be more pervasive. Crop tops and Birkenstocks are street-style staples, witches are the new vampires and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is, well, fresh again. And while for many it may feel early for a ’90s redux, the evidence says otherwise: Cher Horowitz’s, like, totally important Alaïa moment happened 19 years ago. Aaliyah has been dead for 13 years. And Marc Jacobs’s infamous grunge collection for Perry Ellis? That was 21 years ago.

Fall 2014 Trends

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.
