Just because she favored a $9.50 pair of disposable overalls doesn’t mean Carine Roitfeld has taken a departure from high style. The esteemed stylist was recruited by wrap-dress diva Diane von Furstenberg to outfit Daria Werbowy for DVF’s Fall 2013 campaign. Sebastian Faena lensed the ad, an image that lady DVF says is a nod to the brand’s beginnings. “This campaign, like the collection it represents, is really about getting back to our roots,” von Furstenberg said according to Grazia Daily. “It is about empowering women to be the rock star and the muse of their own lives.” [Grazia Daily]

Her closet may be full of all-American styles from Trina Turk and Coach, but Barbie has an eye for avant-garde London looks too.

The 15 new, one-off Barbie dolls will be sold in the shop along with collector’s editions from the icon’s archives. [Style]

She’s already turned Seventeen for one September cover, and now Lily Collins is serving serious fashion for ELLE UKThe Mortal Instruments star posed in a lacy dress that screamed Lana Del Rey for one of the magazine’s Max Abadian-shot covers, and then reminded us of a younger Victoria Beckham in the accompanying spread. In other words, she looks absolutely fierce! [Fashion Gone Rogue]

“The kids in Brooklyn dress better than the adults in most of the rest of the country, which is the truth.” It may sound like a bold claim, but casting director and Planet Awesome Kid blogger Julia Samersova stands by that and the boom of baby fashionistas featured across the world wide web.

A clip filled with cute kittens, flower fields, and Bon Iver? No, it isn’t the Kanye collaborator’s latest video; it’s the promo for his new vegan shoes, on sale to benefit the Best Friends Animal Society. [The Cut]
