Lazaro Hernandez, Anna Wintour, and Jack McCollough
I always thought that to wear Free People you had to be a certain type of girl. The girl that shops at Free People is a free spirit, a flower child, and pretty easygoing. She wears light-weight fabric, fringe, and bell-sleeves for long sleeves. As much as I loved the brand, I frequently felt out of place when trying on their clothes. I felt like I was trying to be a girl that I just wasn’t, but so desperately wanted to be because who wouldn’t want to be the girl who wore Free People, right?! She was just too effortlessly cool. I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels that way and maybe the brand recognized this. So what did they do? They picked a girl who wasn’t your typical Free People girl and made her into one and it worked! When I think of Joan Smalls, I think of edgy, a little dark, dangerous, and risky. She is someone who resembles more Erin Wasson than hippie child, but yet she made it work. Here are a few of her latest shots from the brand that make me want to run out and buy these exact outfits.

The CFDA awards highlights the best of the best in the fashion industry annually. This year, celebrities and the most notable players in the fashion world came out for one of the best dressed events of the year. We’re highlighting our favorite looks below and the winners below that.
I can’t believe it’s time already for the most fashionable night of the year! It’s crazy to think that a year has already gone by. I feel like I was making the 2013 post just last month. This year’s theme is White Tie and Decorations.
Of course we’re kicking things off with Queen Bey and Jay.

There was an unbelievable amount of love for Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney at this year’s 2011 Met Ball. I think out of all the Met Ball’s I have seen, this one has provided the most looks that I have fallen in love with. Well done everyone.
This year’s theme was in tribute to the late designer Alexander McQueen as the museum debuted a new exhibition in his name. Since there were so many attendees this year, I decided to post only my favorite looks (and a few others) – don’t worry, it’s still pretty image heavy!
Where was Camilla Belle this year?
