Sadly (and happily at the same time for those of you who haven’t slept in a week plus) Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is over in New York. But happily (and sadly I’m sure for those who won’t sleep for the rest of this week plus) London Fashion Week has just begun.
This week Vogue released an online article on what the ladies of LFW will be wearing.
I, of course, have my favourites, but if you want to see the whole list feel free to click here for the rest of the list on Vogue.com.
Of course it’s easy to assume that Kate Moss will be wearing a blazer as it’s kind of her staple garment. If she didn’t wear a blazer, I’d be VERY surprised.
Of course with animal print being so in style (and Kate is never not in style) the snake skin shoes are a fair assumption. The snake skin is a little bit more toned down and classy than say, a cheetah or leopard print. It’s an elegant way to participate in the trend.
But you know, if you’re going to do a cheetah print, do it like this Charlotte Olympia pump. With the very subdued, school teacher, black dress. These shoes pop like there is no tomorrow. I love the look and I really hope she does wear something like this to LFW.
Like I said, I have my faves and these are my faves. If you want to check out the list and figure out which looks you like best, click here. Also, to check out what these two women and the rest of the women on this list are wearing, the info is all under neath the photos in the article.
Later days Fashionistas and enjoy LFW.

Kate Moss is arguably one of the strongest forces of fashion that has graced the catwalks and editorial pages in over a decade. She single handedly changed the face of fashion, making grunge, chic.
Moss not only changed the face of fashion, but she changed the silhouette. Designers moved away from curvy models like Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer, in search of Kate’s more waifish figure.
She was the anti-supermodel. She was everything that was not a model, but was still launched to super stardom. Kate’s weight astonished the fashion community and sparked rumors of an eating disorder, but she opened doors for size 0 modelling all around the world.
She’s easily one of the most recognized models in the world and her style is always on everyone’s mind. Her trade mark jacket and tank, over a pair of jeans has been her staple for almost her whole career. In fact, if you look through any random assortment of paparazzi photos of Kate’s day to day life, the majority will probably feature her in a combination of the aforementioned outfit.
Kate’s casual, carefree style doesn’t carry over to her more refined outfits however. When Moss goes to a fashion show, she dresses the way one would imagine a supermodel would if she were seated front row. Lately, Moss has been sporting leather skirts paired with fur, a trend that will transition into the fall superbly and allows her to look trendy and toned down as usual.
She kick starts trends (like high-waisted jeans) simply by wearing a certain outfit and being photographed in said outfit. Moss is a style icon, pushing boundaries constantly. Moss even wore a tuxedo to the Costume Institute Gala, where gowns and glitter usually litter the red carpet.
As far as I’m concerned, there will never be another Kate Moss and no one will ever affect the fashion world on such a large scale in such a small amount of time. At least not in our lifetimes. Kate Moss is a style icon, but largely under appreciated due to a rather controversial past.
The general public needs to look past whatever mistakes she’s made (or the scumbags she’s dated, here’s looking at you Doherty) and admire her for what she’s done.

John Galliano recently outed that designing Kate Moss’ wedding dress was like creative rehab.
John Galliano has been a lot of trouble lately for making anti-Semitic remarks while intoxicated in Paris. The rant got him ousted from Christian Dior and it honestly looked like end of his career. Everyone figured that Galliano was done designing, even Galliano.
“She dared me to be John Galliano again. I couldn’t pick up a pencil. It’s been my creative rehab,” He said about designing Kate’s wedding dress. (YAHOO)
Galliano of course created a beautiful white and gold ornate dress with a translucent skirt.
Safe to say that Kate looked amazing and the dress came out really well.
Unfortunately, Galliano is not completely out of the woods yet. In the country of France anti-Semitic remarks are illegal and are accompanied by 6 months jail time and a very steep fine.
Galliano’s sentencing is on September 8th.

I’m so happy that a supermodel is once again being featured in Vogue. This is ethereal. I want a wedding like this.
Just kidding, sort of like this, but with my horse in the background.
