Looking closer this pair features Black running throughout while constructed with a combination of satin and leather. Red then comes in and is used on the tongue label, Wings logo and laces. Other highlights includes a White midsole and Black rubber outsole which completes the look.

Summer is officially in the books, but Katie Holmes is keeping one of the season’s trends alive — the gladiator sandal.
Holmes wore a floral embroidered evening dress from Chloé ($3,150 on the designer’s website) as she hit the streets of New York en route to the Global Citizen Festival Sept. 28.
For footwear, the 40-year-old actress chose a pair of strappy gladiator sandals with a buckled ankle strap. The open-toed silhouette was perfect for showing off her midnight blue toenail polish. Dubbed the Lyda, the shoes were by Giuseppe Zanotti.
Characterized by wide criss-cross straps, the gladiator dates back to ancient times — when Greek and Roman warriors would suit up in the style for battle. Although the shoe comes in a variety of heights, an ankle-length silhouette like Holmes’ is ideal for women on the shorter side or with thicker calves who want to test out gladiators.
While Holmes went for summery sandals yesterday, she opted for transitional footwear — pointy-toe, crystal-covered Manolo Blahnik pumps — at the premiere of “The Irishman” on Friday night at the New York Film Festival. She teamed the eye-catching shoes with a pussy-bow blouse and lacy skirt, both by Marc Jacobs.
In general, the “Dawson’s Creek” alum is willing to experiment when it comes to her wardrobe. Footwear favorites include Christian Louboutin big-toe mules, Gianvito Rossi high-heeled thong sandals and Ugg shearling boots.

Kylie Jenner wore head-to-toe bubblegum pink in her latest Instagram post.
The 22-year-old Kylie Cosmetics mogul posed in a one-armed bodysuit with cut-out detailing at the stomach and left hip.
For footwear, Jenner reached for shoes from one of the buzziest rising designers out there: Amina Muaddi.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star chose the brand’s Glida mules, which have a leather upper, crystal-covered straps and a 4-inch heel. While sold out in the colorway chosen by Jenner, the shoes are available for $900 on Net-a-Porter.com in pale brown.
Muaddi launched her label in October 2018 with a see-now, buy-now collection — and she quickly began having her heels worn by celebrities such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Dua Lipa and Rihanna.
The 33-year-old Jordanian-Romanian designer was honored at the 2018 FN Achievement Awards for Launch of the Year.
“To be here, to be able to live my dreams and inspire Middle Eastern women to live their own dreams and be able to dress women I could have never imagined I’d be able to dress, it’s an honor,” she said in her acceptance speech.
Jenner completed her look with a lipstick-shaped clutch — a fitting choice, as she’s earned around $1 billion from her eponymous beauty brand, which started off with lip kits. The A-lister’s latest makeup collaboration saw her partnering with French fashion house Balmain. While Jenner planned to attend the label’s Paris Fashion Week show last week, she ended up skipping due to illness.

So, it’s no surprise that the “I Like It” hitmaker nabbed front row seats at Browne’s spring ’20 Paris Fashion Week show.
Cardi wore a gray blazer with cartoonish proportions with a textured, charcoal-colored skirt.
For footwear, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper opted for Browne’s Longwing bootie — a sold-out style with dramatic proportions. The ankle boot has a pebbled leather upper and wooden platform heel, with lace-up fastening at the front and a red, white and blue stripe on the sole.
With its broguelike front and curved heel, the Longwing has a look unique to Browne. But the platform is a major trend for fall ’19, with designers such as Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Giuseppe Zanotti offering their interpretations. While they add plenty of extra height, platforms are easier to walk in than traditional pumps — which can help create a feeling of empowerment for the wearer.
Although music’s most loyal platform proponent is arguably Lady Gaga, Cardi wore the silhouette at fashion’s biggest event of the year: the Met Gala. On the red carpet in May, Cardi wore a pair of Thom Browne booties under an elaborate, feathered gown by the designer.

Williamson, drafted No. 1 overall by the New Orleans Pelicans in June, inked a deal with Jordan Brand in July. Now, the 19-year-old appears in a campaign for the Nike-owned sportswear giant, called “Unite.”
For “Unite,” Jordan Brand has created a series of films, the first of which celebrates people coming together through the game of basketball. Washington Wizards star Rui Hachimura, New York Liberty baller Kia Nurse and Boston Celtics small forward Jayson Tatum appear in the campaign alongside Williamson.
In addition to the film series, Jordan Brand has scheduled a series of international activations celebrating local communities. The first one — a community design event for local New Orleans youth — was held this weekend. Williamson surprised attendees at the activation and will wear an Air Jordan 34 designed by one of the students in an NBA game this season.
The Jordan 34 was revealed earlier this month at an event in Harlem, N.Y. featuring Williamson, Nurse and Asia Durr. Williamson will wear the style throughout the coming NBA season.
Also as part of the campaign, the basketball star appears on a “Unite” billboard in the Big Easy, outside of the Smoothie King Center, where the Pelicans plays.
The former Duke baller signed a seven-year contract with a $75 million payout, according to Forbes. While $75 million is no small number, the figure isn’t the highest rookie contract in NBA history; then a Cleveland Cavalier, LeBron James signed a Nike deal worth $90 million straight out of high school.

The Kardashian-West family is in sync — at least when it comes to footwear.
Kardashian and West were accompanied by North (6), Saint (3) and Chicago (1). Four-month-old Psalm was the only member of the brood not present.
Kardashian wore a white tank top, cargo pants and blue gum-soled Adidas Yeezy Boost 700s, one of the dad shoe silhouettes offered from the brand West creative directs.
All three kids sported the same style as their mom, with each clad in a different colorway. Saint paired his sneakers with an oversized T-shirt and camo pants, while North wore zebra-print pants with a gauzy black blouse.
Kardashian carried Chicago, who sported pigtails and a shearling coat.
Meanwhile, West himself paired his Yeezy kicks with a denim jacket and gray sweats.
The family is in New York ahead of the release of West’s newest album, “Jesus Is King.” While West began his career as a rapper, he’s been more focused on shoes these days, with his Yeezy sneaker empire propelling him to $150 million in pre-tax earnings for the past year, per Forbes. The Adidas Yeezy brand is on pace to do $1.5 billion in sales for 2019, putting it in competition with Jordan Brand ($3 billion).

The shoes in question are a pair of tan, suede chukkas. They appear to be Cole Haan’s Paul, a silhouette that has been in the Duke of Sussex’s wardrobe for several years.
In Lilongwe, Malawi today, Harry teamed the shoes with a gray button-down shirt and charcoal-colored pants as he sang alongside a children’s choir.
The royal also sported the shoes on Sept. 27, wearing a tan button-down and what appeared to be the same, slim-cut pants as he visited Angola.
The boots were Harry’s choice the day before, too, teamed with an olive-colored long-sleeved shirt and gray pants as he visited with kids in Botswana.
Aside from spending time with little Archie, Markle’s had a full calendar of private events. On Sept. 28, the duchess hosted a private breakfast for South African activists in Cape Town. While only a few photos from the event were revealed, Markle’s outfit — a black tank top and a striped J.Crew skirt — was on display in one shot. The striped midi skirt is available to shop on Jcrew.com; it retails for $128.
Markle and Archie departed Cape Town for Johannesburg yesterday.

Olivia Culpo missed New York Fashion Week to work on an upcoming film, but she made it to the City of Lights for Paris Fashion Week — and she didn’t disappoint with her style.
The 27-year-old model posted an Instagram yesterday showing off her fresh, mint green look.
Culpo sported a Paris Georgia blazer dress and matching beret.
For footwear, the 2012 Miss Universe selected white Balenciaga pumps with fringe detailing and a silver-tone BB logo. From the brand’s fall ’19 collection, the shoes are available for $995 on Farfetch.com.
Culpo completed her look with a mini bag from Staud ($325 on Matchesfashion.com).
The “I Feel Pretty” actress has been all over Paris Fashion Week, attending shows for Balmain and Off-White. She also made her way out to the Ralph Lauren x Vanity Fair party on Sept. 28. For the celebration, Culpo selected a little black blazer dress, which she styled with white mid-calf boots.
When it comes to her personal style, the Rhode Islander is a big fan of heels, with go-to brands including Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman and Fendi. She’s never afraid to test out more avant-garde styles, like brightly colored thigh-highs or strappy sandals extending all the way up to her thighs.

Just a year ago, Balenciaga was still enjoying its “dad shoe” heyday, with the wild success of the super-chunky, super-desirable Triple S sneaker, along with its follow up, the hiking-inspired Trek.
But a lot can happen in a year — especially in fashion — and at the French fashion house’s Sunday show during Paris Fashion Week, Balenciaga did a total 180, swapping dad sneakers for ballgowns.
Against a cobalt blue backdrop, creative director Demna Gvasalia sent out a series of evening gowns. Some had the same body con sleeves of his signature mini dresses, while others had giant metallic bows attached to a sleeveless bodice. They all had gigantic, sweeping skirts, courtesy of what look like the largest crinolines underneath, forming perfect, exaggerated circles.
Elsewhere, the lines were sharp as ever and the colors just as saturated as last season. Tailored jackets and bright midi dresses had even more exaggerated shoulders and Bella Hadid walked the blue runway in a red velvet off-the-shoulder body con mini dress that was paired with lace-up pointy toed white pumps.
It was all an amplification of last season’s sharp, colorful, serious lines. And at a time when most other brands are going for a comfortable sandal or easy mid heel, Balenciaga doubled down on the pump with a stiletto heel. There were also plenty of slick over-the-knee boots.
Sneakers didn’t disappear entirely, though. On a few of the menswear looks, a curious sneaker popped up. Instead of a chunky sole like the Triple S, this one appeared to be much more aerodynamic. It also had “Tyrex” on front and had what appeared to be an angled square toe — certainly a unique new progression in fashion’s current favorite footwear trend.
In a season when some are wondering if the fashion sneaker is dead, Balenciaga once again begs the question.

Designer Pierpaolo Piccioli’s creations for Valentino are known for being dreamy and extravagant, but over the past few seasons things have gotten a bit more casual, with the launch of the streetwear-influenced VLTN line in early 2018 for men and a collaboration with Birkenstock in January 2019.
For spring ’20, Piccioli combined the two for a collection that is the best of both worlds. Fantastical gowns in delicate lace and organza mingled with tailored pieces done in bright neon hues. And though Birkenstock didn’t make an appearance, the flat sandals that walked the runway indicated that perhaps the Valentino woman doesn’t want to go back to an uncomfortable heel — even if she’s wearing a couture gown.
The sandals conveyed a vacation-like ease, and many had a thong toe and rope detailing that wrapped around the ankle (some even had feathers attached to them).
The shoes were paired with gowns and tailoring done either in angelic white, sophisticated black (like model Kaia Gerber’s look, with an organza blouse and skirt suit) or an array of bright neons. A lime green gown matched the window panes inside the show exactly, while a series of hot pink gowns further confirmed that it is the color of the season.
Picciolo also went wild with the show’s beauty looks, courtesy of master makeup artist Pat McGrath. The colorful eye makeup is a trend that’s been prevalent across the spring ’20 season, as designers have taken notes from HBO’s hit series “Euphoria” starring Zendaya.

Paris may be the last stop on the fashion month calendar, but it’s definitely not the least.
As fashion’s elite descended upon the City of Lights for Paris Fashion Week spring ’20, memorable — and memeable — moments abounded both on the runways and on the streets. Below, FN rounds up our favorite internet moments from PFW.
Balenciaga’s Dramatic Dalmatian Coat
Nothing gives off Cruella de Vil vibes quite like an oversized, fluffy Dalmatian print coat. Blogger Bryanboy was into the look — and other Twitter users were quick to draw “101 Dalmatians” comparisons.
Off-White’s ‘Cheesy’ Shoes
For spring ’20, Off-White creative director Virgil Abloh took inspiration from the “cheesehead” attire sported by fans of sports teams at his alma mater, University of Wisconsin. The hole-poked footwear, clothing and handbags reminded Twitter of cheese.
Nina Ricci’s Beach Pail Hat
New York Times fashion critic Vanessa Friedman was quick to point out the uncanny similarities between a Nina Ricci hat/bag and a pail used by children in the sandbox.
Cardi B Goes Undercover
Cardi B wore a head-to-toe floral-print Richard Quinn look that even covered up her face. The dramatic ensemble drew lots of comparisons, from Madea to Queen Elizabeth II to Mrs. Doubtfire.
Leon Dame’s Runway Walk
Model Leon Dame closed Maison Margiela’s show, and his walk was rather unconventional. It didn’t take long for netizens to take note — and Dame’s quirky turn on the catwalk went totally viral.

After spotting fall’s biggest trends on the runways months back and now seeing them trickle into the new-arrivals sections at my favorite retailers, I couldn’t wait for autumn so that I could test out what’s new in fashion. The runway is a great place to take inspiration from, and I’m always ready to incorporate the latest trends and micro-trends into my wardrobe and put my own spin on them.
Right now, I’m loving pieces that are skewing either minimal or maximal—with everything from tailored shirting and sleek leather trench coats to chunky statement jewelry and bold orange shades topping my list. Here, I’m test-driving eight trends I’m excited about for fall, with outfits that feel true to my personal sense of style. Go on to discover the fall trends I’m wearing now, and shop my edit of pieces to add to your wardrobe and make your own for the new season.
Who What Wear’s market editor Judith Jones covered the color trends of the season and noted that orange will be huge following its presence on the F/W 19 runways. I tend to stick with neutrals over bold shades but discovered that the color was actually easier to pull off than I originally thought—especially when sticking with a classic piece like this tweed jacket.
I’ve been seeing scoop necklines popping up everywhere from Bottega Veneta to Pixie Market and think they’re the workhorse fall staple to wear with just about anything. Here, I paired one with wide-leg shorts, but moving into fall, I’ll be wearing one with everything from trouser-style jeans to leather skirts.
Ankle boots have ruled my closet for years, but more recently, I’ve been collecting knee-high versions to wear with anything from jeans to long skirts and midi dresses. They’re truly a great fall boot style that has proven to be extremely versatile.
I’ve been spotting open-front shirting all over the street style scene at fashion month and wanted to try it out for myself. I love the idea of breathing life into a collared shirt by leaving it unbuttoned from the waist down. I’ll definitely be repeating this in different iterations in the months ahead.
For fall, classic wardrobe staples have been given tweaks that make them feel a bit cooler and more modern than the originals. Here, I tried out suiting with a few twists—an oversize blazer paired with flared, legging-style pants.
Full leather looks instantly read as luxe and will no doubt be one of the most-worn trends this fall. To try it for myself, I invested in this faux leather trench coat from Nanushka (there’s a similar dress version below) to wear with these two-tone H&M boots.
Big bags have been one of the most talked-about fall trends—and also one of the most controversial. They were spotted everywhere from Jacquemus to Loewe to Maison Margiela and more recently have proven to be popular on the street style scene. While I’m not ready to carry around a giant tote bag, I am embracing bags bigger than the smaller sizes I’ve been wearing for the last few years.
