Poppy Delevingne and Alexa Chung ooze style during the Christopher Kane fashion show in London

Poppy Delevingne and Alexa Chung showed off their style credentials on Sunday as they took to the front row at the Christopher Kane London Fashion Week show.

The blonde model, 36, looked glamorous in a sequin-embellished mini dress for the outing, which featured a high neck and sleeveless design.

She teamed the garment with a matching overcoat in the same black and silver design, draping it over one shoulder.

While Alexa, 39, smiled alongside in a chest-baring grey cardigan, which was slit all the way down the centre. 

The fashion designer added a spot of colour with a satin pink midi skirt with a lace detailing on each side.

Alexa added a pair of knee-high glossy boots to her look, keeping her shoulder-length brown tresses in a slight wave. 

The TV personality and Poppy both opted for natural make-up looks on their complexions, with the latter clipping her wavy blonde locks back with a hair grip.

Showing off her physique, the socialite matched her pal by sporting a pair of thigh-high black heeled boots.

The two fashion staples joined the front row, sitting alongside stars such as Clara Amfo, Reece Clarke, Betty Bachz and Imogen Kwok.

Rihanna’s Best Fashion Moments | Time

Among her many titles as the reigning multihyphenate of our time, Rihanna’s status as a fashion icon may be the one that best encapsulates the power and reach of her cultural influence. While the bad gal has always marched to the beat of her own style drum, she’s also used her love of fashion to send a message and start multiple businesses, even making history in the process.

Rihanna has always been known for her fearlessness, and that extends to her fashion sensibility. There are few celebrities that move as easily on the Met Gala red carpet in an avant garde Comme des Garçons ensemble as they do in self-referential streetwear as Rihanna does.

She’s been named a “fashion icon” by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, had fashion collaborations with the likes of Armani and Puma, been a brand ambassador for fashion houses like Dior, and launched her own fashion and beauty lines, including Savage x Fenty lingerie and athletic wear, and her now-paused luxury offering, Fenty, an LVMH-backed brand that was the first luxury line at the fashion conglomerate to be headed up by a Black woman. Which is to say, when it comes to fashion, Rihanna is a veritable powerhouse and with her biggest stage yet headlining this year’s halftime show at Super Bowl LVII, there’s no doubt that there will plenty more memorable fashion looks to look forward to. With that in mind, we’re taking a look back at Rihanna’s best fashion moments over the years.

For the 2013 Grammys, Rihanna turned up the heat in a bright red custom gown with a dramatic train from Azzedine Alaia.

Eggs were the bizarre trend at New York Fashion Week

An emerging trend is on the horizon, and we really weren’t egg-specting it. (We’re sorry in advance for the egg puns.)

While New York Fashion Week 2023 highlighted so many new trends you can shop now, as well as street style everyone is wearing, it turns out that eggs might be making their way into our wardrobes. 

Eggs are a staple in most refrigerators. They’re perfect as a breakfast food, as a baking ingredient… the list goes on and on. One thing, however, we never expected eggs to be was fashionable.

A few months ago, we saw a TikTok on the account @nailedbynika of a nail artist creating a 3D egg on an acrylic nail. It was actually pretty cute, in a surrealist, supermarket fashion kind of way. 

This wasn’t a super shocking or questionable design in our opinion, seeing as we’ve seen a myriad of quirky patterns become popular over the last few years – for example, cow print, or even the very controversial emergence of chevron. 

Lisa Says Gah!, a popular, ethical fashion brand that sells their products mainly online, also indulges in selling clothes with fun, food-related patterns. They have a popular white t-shirt called their Dana Long Sleeve with a baguette on it, for example – or you could peruse their Italian Summer Collection, which has prints on pants, shirts, and dresses that feature cans of sardines, bottles of wine, grape tomatoes, and more.

Recently, at the Puppet and Puppet show at New York Fashion week, we saw another food-related clothing item emerge – an egg bra. Pictured above, this egg bra was made with a group of variously shaped black crystals, and boasts sunnyside eggs in a position that perfectly covers the model’s nipples. 

Some models were given egg bras that

Two-spirit joy shines bright at New York Fashion Week as La Loche teacher models for Cree streetwear designer

Prairie Pride is a series by Local Journalism Initiative reporter Julia Peterson that celebrates queer life in rural Saskatchewan.

When Jazz Moise gets dressed in the morning, the world is his runway.

With bright patterns, vibrant sparkles and big, dangly earrings, the La Loche, Sask., substitute teacher finds joy and confidence in his clothing, expressing his creativity and two-spirit identity with every outfit.

Earlier this month, Moise took his love of fashion to a much bigger stage: New York Fashion Week.

“Being on the runway was a thrill,” said Moise. “I had a straight face, of course. I had to look fierce. But right when I stepped on the runway, I saw the crowd, and people were cheering. It was just surreal.”

Moise was one of the models representing Scott Wabano, a two-spirit Indigenous fashion designer whose genderless clothes showcase and celebrate Indigenous LGBTQ2S+ identities.

“I had never imagined myself being a model,” said Moise. “I’ve only ever enjoyed fashion. I love dressing up; I love expressing myself. But seeing that there was an opportunity, I said ‘oh my gosh. This is my shot.'”

Wabano, who is Mushkegowuk from Moose Factory, on the west coast of James Bay, with Eeyou-Eenou family roots from the Quebec Cree Nation of Waskaganish, aims to challenge colonial binaries, like gender terms brought on by early settlers.

For Moise, walking that runway in Wabano’s flowing silk outfit was a chance to represent two-spirit excellence and be the role model he had wanted while growing up in La Loche.

London Fashion Week ushers in a new age of luxury consumerism

London Fashion Week returned to the UK capital this week, boasting a teeming line up of 127 brands that showed through a series of runways, presentations and events throughout the city. Like always, the fashion week continued to put its emphasis on emerging designers and new names, bolstering their platform via its NewGen initiative. However, over the five-day period it wasn’t just the anticipation surrounding what the innovative young designers would present that had people buzzing, but that of eagerly awaited debuts and special occasions that were taking to London for the first time.

Luxury prevails in the fashion capital

And the event seemed to have rolled around right on time, just as the English capital was experiencing something of a luxury fashion revival. The sector is seemingly thriving in London, indicating a hint of promise for luxury despite the region braving the current cost-of-living crisis alongside record-breaking inflation. This was evident in a recent report by Savills, which stated that premium fashion brands were continuing to dominate the city’s retail landscape, moving in at a rate slightly higher than pre-pandemic. The property consultants found that there were some 21 international fashion and footwear brands that had opened debut London stores in the last year, double that of its 2021 figure. And the optimism is predicted to continue over the coming year, with more expected to come.

This sentiment was reflected in LFW’s lineup this season, where a number of luxury brands had either returned to the city or made their debut. However, unlike its Parisian and Italian counterparts, LFW relies more on that of young talent and emerging names, which take up the bulk of the schedule in the form of

The Fashion Industry’s Invisible Plastic Problem

Biodegradable yarn made from algae, brands embracing upcycled textiles and runway shows banning plastic hangers: The growing attention paid to sustainability in the fashion industry is laudable — and starting to make a real impact.

Innovative and effective solutions are alive and well in the clothing industry. And outright waste, like the fact that 20% of all garments produced each year are never sold and go straight to landfills, is also getting more negative attention.

But even during this Fashion Week season, with the ongoing shows in New York and those that will open soon in Los Angeles, there is something that hardly anyone in the United States is talking about: What about all the packaging behind the scenes in the clothing and fashion industry all year long?

Few are aware of the massive amounts of plastic used to move textiles, other raw materials and finished products within the fashion supply chain. More than a quarter of all plastic created globally each year is used in the fashion industry. And much of this is flexible packaging and film, which cannot be recycled and will forever stay in landfills and in our oceans.

This behind-the-scenes plastic is similar to the issue of poor overseas labor conditions three decades ago, and it’s simply something no one talks about — yet. That needs to change.

While brands can — and some are — addressing this problem, fashion industry leaders and government regulators need to step up and lead the effort in order to make real change. For example, some brands indeed are switching to alternatives, like compostable packaging. More than 60 brands have also signed a pact to ensure 50% of business-to-business packaging is made from recycled materials by 2030, and legislators are working on new laws, especially in Europe. But

Lidl announces its middle aisle buys with a photoshoot inspired by London Fashion Week

German supermarket giant Lidl has delved into the wonderful and sometimes bizarre world of high-end fashion with its latest photoshoot.

Inspired by London Fashion Week, the chain has released a collection of images showcasing its middle aisle buys as quirky accessories for equally standout outfits. 

This new marketing campaign sees a rope transformed into a handbag and saucepans used as necklaces. 

Lidl has even made a must-have accessory of its sell-out air fryer, which is back in stores this week, after a previous version sold 17 per minute last November. 

The supermarket giant is encouraging fashion-forward customers to recreate its looks and strut down the middle aisle to bag the latest accessories.

In one image a model poses in Harry Potter inspired bedsheets, which have been made into an asymmetrical dress, complete with a rope bag accessory.

Elsewhere, Lidl has draped the model in a see-through cloth, which looks like a rain coat to ensure that no attention is taken away from the supermarket’s sell-out air fryer. 

Taking inspiration from New York fashion week, meanwhile,  Lidl has draped the models in its electrical tape to draw attention to its middle aisle tool kit this week.

It comes after cash-strapped families were told last month that they faced the sharpest increase in grocery prices since records began, with annual shopping bills predicted to rocket by £788 this year.

Grocery prices ballooned by a record 16.7 per cent year-on-year, in the largest hike since analyst Kantar started monitoring food inflation in 2008.

Julia Fox and Son Valentino at Diesel Fashion Show

Like mother, like son. On Feb. 22, Julia Fox attended the Diesel fall/winter 2023 presentation during Milan Fashion Week with her 2-year-old son Valentino. The two stepped out in matching denim looks, with Fox in a pair of extremely low-rise jeans that were actually pantaboots. She wore a denim jacket draped off her shoulders and a strapless bandeau top. Fox held Valentino on the red carpet, showing off his double-denim outfit as well as his cute cowboy boots.

This was Valentino’s very first fashion week appearance — not to mention his first-ever fashion show — and with a parent like Fox, good style is in his jeans. Fox, who shares her son with ex-husband Peter Artemiev, announced Valentino’s birth on Valentine’s Day in 2021. “My forever valentine, Valentino. Born on January 17th, 2021. The best day of my life,” she wrote on Instagram. Now that Valentino is a little older, the mother-son duo can take on the red carpet together, looking like a high-fashion duo.

In the past, Fox has stressed the importance of “maximum transparency,” which extends to some areas of her personal life, including parenting. To this point, she’s given a highly relatable tour of her apartment, spoken about raising her child in New York City, and opened up about her experience with postpartum depression. Now, she’s letting fans in on another (albeit more fashionable) milestone. Read on to see photos of Fox and Valentino at his very first fashion show.

10 Easy London Fashion Week Outfits You Can Wear This Weekend

All products featured on Vogue are independently selected by our editors. However, we may earn affiliate revenue on this article and commission when you buy something.

The street style scene can be incredibly theatrical, with guests having at least three outfit changes in a day in the back of their chauffeured cars, pieces borrowed by designers for an hour or so, and outfits chosen for their wow factor. As fabulous as these moments can be, we find ourselves drawn to the quieter outfits that we can actually use as styling inspiration for months, if not years, to come.

Out of all of the international fashion weeks, London always has a more relaxed and practical energy—maybe it’s the high chance of rain, or the likelihood that you’ll be spending a couple of hours stood in a freezing warehouse in Hackney. Most editors, stylists, and buyers tend to wear their minimalist staples, such as jeans or black tailored trousers, as a base, and then add some more interest with accessories or a few trend-led pieces.

There were a few trends we saw, again and again, this London Fashion Week, namely bomber jackets, the leather motocross trend, wide-leg jeans, and oversized silhouettes. If you are in need of some fresh outfit inspiration, then let the below ten looks help guide some of your styling decisions or new purchases for the season ahead.

The Minimalist Dream

When at fashion month, British Vogue’s deputy editor and fashion features director, Sarah Harris, always focuses on timeless, simple wardrobe pieces. Instead of shouty prints or extroverted trends, she keeps it polished and classic in elegant tailoring and refined separates. In London, she wore loose-fitting black trousers with a utility shirt-style jacket, white T-shirt, and pointed pumps—an outfit you don’t need a fashion show invite
