In an ode to the glorious style of the 1990s, Donna Karan is linking up with Opening Ceremony for a capsule dose of nostalgia. DKNY and Opening Ceremony are debuting a 15-piece collection of flashback fashion that all 90s babies can drool over: puffer jackets, hooded maxi dresses, and old-school DKNY logos plastered across comfy oversized tees, all debuting tomorrow, February 1. And to top it all off, the ubiquitous Cara Delevingne (who is the face of DKNY’s Spring 2013 collection alongside Karlie Kloss), stars in the collaboration’s black and white ads. [GlamChic]

Speaking of it-girl Karlie, the 5-foot-11 stunner isn’t just stomping the runways this New York Fashion Week.

Brooklyn-based bling girl Pamela Love has launched a collaborative collection with Zadig & Voltaire.

Since Smurfette is the only little lady in the land of the Smurfs, it’s only fair that fashion to her justice.
