Daytime Drama

In partnership with Style.com. Fashion editors from Vogue and Style.com curate a look that feels chic as well as exciting and new for spring/summer ’17.

“Don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. The only rule is not to blend in,” is an oft-spotted quote by Paris Hilton – the symbol of Noughties navel-gazing has been enjoying a renaissance of late among the Tumblr crowd with her slyly witty observations.

It’s a sentiment that designers struggle with today, as they try to navigate a digital landscape which allows for any photo or reference to be easily accessed with the swipe of a thumb and catwalk pieces to be reproduced across the world even before the clothes have landed in-store.

The most continuously innovative designers, such as Christopher Kane and Paco Rabanne creative director Julien Dossena, counteract internet-fuelled jadedness with clever ways to jar the brain and titillate the eye (witness Kane’s necklace featuring a beetle set in resin).

Coachella 2017 style: Rihanna, Katy Perry and Kendall Jenner do festival fashion in Palm Springs

image

The first weekend of the Coachella festival in Palm Springs is complete with Nicole Scherzinger, Lady Gaga and Rita Ora among the stars to turn up and show off their take on festival fashion so far.

Some celebrities have gone for tried-and-tested looks; boho has been big, as have denim shorts, sequin tops and pristine white trainers (hold the festival mud).

But others have been more experimental. Take Kendall Jenner in dramatic sleeves, Selena Gomez in a vintage neckerchief, or, the ultimate, Rihanna in that sparkly spandex bodysuit by Gucci.
