531e1820-cdc4-4799-82d2-c6d1f80ea899-1667x2040

It’s always satisfying to witness a figure of speech made real. “Stopping traffic”: this is precisely what Tess Holliday is doing. Smouldering against a wall on a street in Red Hook, Brooklyn, thronged by the mini entourage of a professional photo shoot, she’s dressed in a corset and black cape, like some kind of vampish, […]

How to dress for summer as an older woman

Roshi Porkar show, Berlin Fashion Week, Germany - 10 Jul 2014

I’ve never believed in age-appropriate dressing – when you’ve rocked out to the Rolling Stones or pogoed to the Pistols, that’s never going to happen. But there was a pivotal point in my mid-40s when I threw away my collection of shoestring-strap vests. The less-than-toned arms and too-lazy-for-the-gym attitude called time on skimpy tops. Admittedly, […]

The CFDA fashion awards – who won and who went?

CFDA Fashion Awards, New York, America - 01 Jun 2015

The CFDAs are no ordinary trade shindig. The Council of Fashion Designers of America’s fashion awards honour the leading lights of the US fashion world. This means that the loos are filled with the likes of Victoria Beckham and Gigi Hadid reapplying their lipstick rather than Jenny from accounts; post-show munchies are less Chicken Cottage […]

He is the less well-known half of a power fashion duo It isn’t usual protocol on the Guardian’s fashion desk to flag up the moment that a Hollywood star gets a new stylist to fix her up with some frocks on the red carpet. Not even when it is human rights lawyer and (apparent) Audrey […]

From the frow to the brow: how front row politics transcended fashion

6de0e522-8c1a-4856-a90c-8f50fe6033d0-620x372

There’s a very real reason the feudal systems have remained in our social consciousness since the ninth century. Take as an example the frow, the mother of all non-political non-manorial feudal systems. The term frow is a portmanteau of front row, in the fashion show sense. It also, confusingly, translates as Dutch woman or, pejoratively, […]

Yes, wearing a hat is eccentric – but here’s why I do it anyway

David Beckham spotted wearing an unusual item of clothing is a news story that has been with us since the mid-90s and, like war in the gulf or a new series of New Tricks, it keeps returning, despite no one having the stomach for it. This time he has been pictured wearing a flat cap […]

From the Minions to Alexa Chung: how dungarees grew up

Miroslava Duma, Alexa Chung and Chiara Ferragni in dungarees

In fashion, it is a truth universally acknowledged that what Miranda Priestly says goes. The fictional editor-in-chief played by Meryl Streep in 2006’s The Devil Wears Prada was particularly on the money when it comes to trends (“Florals for spring? Groundbreaking”). Dressing down Anne Hathaway in the classic “cerulean blue” scene, she explains how the […]

d0ace2af-dc85-4d3f-a7ee-4d830dff69b6-620x372

The space age is back next season – on Bond Street, at least. A nostalgia which has embraced 70s bohemia and 90s minimalism is making way for an intergalactic aesthetic, with Louis Vuitton the latest fashion power player to turn his catwalk into a spaceship. A hit combination of Louis Vuitton’s Parisian glamour and the […]
