Fashion Police: Elle Fanning Knows How to Wear Rodarte

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers,

Elle Fanning

Can we just take a minute to bask in the elegance and awesomesauce that is Elle Fanning's style?

The 15 year-old (I know, it's not fair, right?) showed up in this fabulous Rodarte Spring 2013 look to the Hammer Museum on Monday night, where Rodarte and Todd Cole presented their film collaborations. The sleek sheer over the skirt matched with a very feminine take on a tuxedo top make for one brilliant gown, which Elle effortlessly and goodness knows glamourously wore to the event.

Fanning's look is a breath of fresh air among tacky Halloween costumes and previous questionable fashions.

Black Swan Expected to Influence Spring Fashion

Black SwanPrepare yourself for a bombardment of tutus, feathers, and knits -- Rodarte fans are swooning everywhere! It's bad enough that people are clocking in more hours at the gym because of Black Swan, but now clothing designers are banking on the film's popularity in hopes that consumers will flock to their stores, too.

Costume designer Amy Westcott worked with Rodarte duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy in bringing the gothic fairytale looks to life. "We had an affinity for the subject matter," Kate said. She added that it helped her understand the "darker nature and twisted kind of underbelly" of the ballet world.

Lagerfeld's Spring/Summer 2011 collection already reflects a feminine-with-a-dash-of-darkness theme, complete with dark eye makeup, sheer materials, and jeweled fabrics. BCBG Max Azria and Lipsy of London are due to sell tutus come this Spring.

Amidst this dance craze, let's not forget that there's always American Apparel.

Items Du Jour: Olsens Look to London, Zac Looks to Paris, and Rodarte on Daytime TV

Lady Gaga in Calvin Klein- At last night’s big Belvedere Pink Grapefruit event in New York, Ashley Olsen revealed that a certain city across the pond will be the inspiration for the pair’s next Olsenboye collection. That’s nice and all, but I’d really appreciate if they’d concentrate on getting the line out of JCPenney.

- While it may not be London who calls for Zac Posen, Paris has caught the American designer’s eye. Posen, who has been unhappy with how New York critics have treated him during fashion week debuts, says that he wants to show in the city of love because “they understand my clothes.”

- With a slew of dark looks lately, Lady Gaga performed at the Rainforest Fund’s 21st Birthday Celebration in an all-white custom Calvin Klein creation. She even wore a light gray wig to match!

- As her younger sister Georgia Jagger steams up the latest Chanel ads, model Elizabeth Jagger is contemplating full-on nude spreads now that she’s getting older. Has she seen Helena Christensen and Claudia Schiffer lately?

- There’s a new bag in town, and it’s called the Schitbag. If only I made these things up. I’m almost tempted to buy it simply to tout the fact that I have a fashionable schitbag.

Quote of the Day: Mulleavy Sisters on Functioning Together

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Fashion Designers, News,

Kate and Laura Mulleavy

“We’re always together. We function as one unit. We started thinking about our [autumn] collection when we were driving through Texas listening to 1950s music. I said: ‘I’m thinking of these border towns and sleepwalking.’ [Laura] said: ‘Me, too.’”

- designer Kate Mulleavy on her connection with her sister (and other half of Rodarte) Laura.

First Look: Louise Goldin For Topshop

Louise Goldin for Topshop

Judging by photos of her first shoe collection for Topshop, Louise Goldin is still very much inspired by the science-fiction fare.

Set to hit boutiques this February and March, Goldin’s killer footwear resemble those that appeared at Rodarte’s Spring/Summer 2009.

The thought of pairing these statement-making heels with Spring/Summer 2010 looks makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Imagine them with those gorgeous Lanvin dresses or swapping Alexander Wang’s animal print shoes for these! Will you be sporting these alluring-yet-deadly shoes?

Rodarte for Target lookbook

Even though all of these pieces have already leaked, lookbook images for the Rodarte line have officially been released by Target.

The entire lookbook has yet to be published; however, we’re down to a little less than three weeks (the line is due in Target stores on December 20th)—the rest of the images are sure to come out any day now.

Prior to these photos, I was sure of which pieces I wanted to go after—now I want the whole collection! Those gloves and stockings are to die for!

Rodarte for Target in Teen Vogue and Glamour

Marie Claire also published a few images (seen after the jump) of the pieces, set to hit Target stores on December 20th.

Loving or loathing the line so far?

First Look: Rodarte For Target

Rodarte for Target

Although its due date isn’t until December 20th, pictures of Rodarte’s Target line have surfaced on the internet, and now I’m even more anxious!

Not only do I want the Madonna-esque gloves and mustard (yes, that’s right) lace dress, but I think that I just may be more upset after having seen the images—my closet cannot wait two months for those pieces.

I have to admit that the ribcage graphic print dress (seen after the jump) is one that I do not fancy; however, there are 54 other pieces in the collection. Why can’t it be December 20th already?
