Monochromin' 2013

Alexander McQueen
There have been some particularly striking monochrome looks fresh from the catwalk over the past year. I particularly love the white collar and cuffs look, as by Valentino (below).

Kris Jenner has worn a couple of my fave dresses of the last few seasons - Valentino and McQueen, as below. She also wore one of my fave dresses of 2011, a black & white Pucci, here. I do love her stylist's taste!

Here are some more of my fave black & white looks from Spring and Fall 2013.

Boobs - The New Black 2013

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and quite coincidentally, boobs are everywhere! Gaping bazers sans bra, shirts slashed to the sternum & large expanses of decolletage are hot this Fall. Claire Danes went sheer & super low at the Emmys. Buxom Kim K and Miranda Kerr both went for OTT eye-popping cleavage at Paris Fashion Week. I love these shots from Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent Pre-Fall 2014, reminiscent of Tom Ford's early Gucci cigarette pants & satin shirt looks .

The no-bra + blazer seems to also be the look du jour. I love a good black blazer, but when it comes to the bra or no bra look underneath I do think only those with petite frames & smaller busts (a la Kate Moss or Cara Delevingne) can carry it off. But it is a real high fashion or red carpet look - not for your usual night on the town. Having said that - Cara seems to have carried it off just wandering home from a night on the town in bra and jacket, below.
