There are countless things that I love about Paris—walking the streets of the Marais and soaking up the style, the Tuileries, salads at the Costes. And, of course, no trip is complete without a trip (or three) to Ladurée—home to the best macaroons. Now the patisserie is collaborating with Christian Louboutin on a new collection of boxes to house said delicious goodies, available in September. As far as random collaborations go, this one we like. They already make a perfect gift to bring home from a trip, or thank god (at least for some of you) you can order them online.
20 Moments that Rocked the Fashion World in 2011
We'll cut right to the chase: A lot of crazy shit happened in the fashion world this year. While the industry that we call home can sometimes seem isolated and fantastical, many of its key players and events made headlines even in the mainstream media over the course of 2011.In the last 365 days, we've seen our share of ups and downs: There have been exciting new beginnings and tragic falls from grace. A royal wedding and a Sarah Burton for McQueen dress captivated the world, while Galliano's dress for Kate Moss made the fashion world swoon. We've celebrated the return of older models—like when 46-year-old Kristen McMenamy wore a bikini on the cover of Vogue Italia—and saw plenty of controversy surrounding very young ones. Just when we thought the boundaries of gender identity were breaking for good and that Lea T could kiss Kate Moss on the cover of LOVE, a men's mag openly calls androgynous model Andrej Pejic a "thing." We took it all in stride, and we've hopefully come out better on the other side.Looking back at 2011, we've chosen twenty major moments that we believe defined the year in fashion. Which one made the biggest impact on you?
