with Rihanna, and having Rita Ora call her “wifey” isn’t enough, this girl is jetting around the globe for today’s biggest fashion houses such as Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, and Dolce and Gabana. She made her debut as an “angel” at the 2012 Victoria Secret Fashion Show which catapulted her star even more. Her older sister Poppy was already in the modeling business, and with that kind of bone structure, Cara had to follow. She’s often been referred to as the “next” Kate Moss. This girl has been the face of DKNY, H&M, Burberry and most recently Mulberry.

All of those amazing credentials aside, this model has crept steadily into social media, and is now followed millions. How can a model become such a mainstream success? It’s all in her personality. She’s not afraid to post pictures of herself in giant hot dog costumes and letting her ugly side show. She’s therefore a lot more relatable then all of those unattainable beauties, who seem to never EVER have a bad day. Cara we can’t wait to see where your very bright future takes you!

Do you have what it takes to be an “It” girl? 😉

Did London Fashion Week prove the city’s title as Fashion Capital of the World?

The extensive media coverage of the London Olympics this past summer as well as the elegance of the Duchess of Cambridge, really helped solidify the city’s title as “Fashion Capital of the World” for the second consecutive year, surpassing New York City that had held the title for years. While Paris and Milan will always be known for their elegance in Haute Couture, London’s fashion scene and designers are know for their extravagant eccentricity and edge. (see slideshow at the end)

What did London Fashion Week deliver this season?

 

                  

This week, London-based designers have shown us once again why they are among the elite in the fashion world. From Louise Gray’s Kaleidoscope show and Peter Pilotto’s amazing prints to the 70’s disco party at Jonathan Saunders and Meadham Kirchhoff’s memorable spectacle, the runway was flooded with a variety of colors and quirky prints.

We cannot forget THE Christopher Kane who, in his collection this season, played with sheer fabrics as accents to garments, while also incorporating lace, ruffles and detailed beading as embellishments. Mulberry added a fresh scent of florals to its “English Garden” collection using a palette of cream, peach, and mint. Appropriately enough, Lady Gaga opened Philip Treacy’s show which was presented as an homage to Michael Jackson. Models walked the runway in Treacy’s collection which was inspired by vintage MJ costumes.

Of course, there is always London’s one and only Burberry Prorsum that delivered an electric space-age show. “I want it to be joyous, a bit sassier and sexier”, said creative director Christopher Bailey. Metallic leather, shiny satin corsets, foil-like fabrics, silk capes and iridescent body suits invaded the catwalk in a wide range of gemstone and metallic colors such as: copper, bronze, emerald, turquoise and garnet. For the finale, Bailey had his models walk out in a rainbow of metallic trench coats.

This year’s Spring/Summer 2013 London Fashion Week leaves little or no doubt that London deserves its title. It has continued to embody new and innovative fashion trends. In doing so, it daringly, yet capriciously, rounds out the “Big-Four” of Fashion Capitals of the World.
