Who Wears The Pants

Who Wears The Pants

I recently spent an afternoon getting in Alvin Valley’s pants (too easy). In order to get the behind-the-seams scoop on all things trouser-related, I visited the self-proclaimed King of Pants in his West Village studio. While I love being girly and feminine, I also love a pair of strong, tailored pants. This winter, chic trousers have overpowered the skirt to become the de-facto standard for the woman who means business. It’s just too cold to skimp on fabric – we need our legs fully covered, lest we lose one to frost bite.

Her effortless, ombré hair and plunging neckline made her look both cool and elegant – a perfect choice for her hosting duties that evening. So while there were some great movies this year – I loved Still Alice and am thrilled Julianne took home the best actress award – I truthfully always watch the Academy Awards for the fashion. Here are my top five of the night.

50 Shades of Blonde – My Secret to Effortless Locks

50 Shades of Blonde – My Secret to Effortless Locks

When it comes to my hair, I’m normally a pretty low-maintenance girl: I either walk out with wet hair or use Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray as a dry shampoo when I can’t be bothered. But when I want to go glam, I go for a blow out. I like soft, effortless waves that fall around the face – we call it “model off duty” hair because it seems like it just happened perfectly without much coiffing. I figured I’d share my secrets with you and asked one of my favorite stylists, Bradley Irion at Artists by Timothy Priano, to  dish on how to get my signature beach girl style.

Remember that rule you heard growing up about not wearing white after Labor Day? Forget it! Throw it out from your mind, banish it from your thoughts and relegate it to the recycling bins of useless information. I’m here to tell you that winter white is fabulous, and not just fabulous, but also a major trend for Fall/Winter 2015, seen on the runways of Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu, in gowns at Altuzarra and as capes at Tommy Hilfiger.
