Perhaps we're crazy, but we're starting to think the right leg trend, pioneered, or at least made famous by the meme-ification of Angelina Jolie's 201
Spring merchandise is about to hit the racks, and with the mild winter we've had, we are itching to get our hands on some warm-weather goodies. So we all went pretend shopping--which hopefully will soon turn into real shopping. Picks from our favorite designers, from 3.1 Phillip Lim to Céline are here, as well as a few unexpected products like a new MacBook Air (a business expense!). Click through to see what Fashionista editors are coveting for spring--not all of it is within our budgets, alas, but we can dream. What are you dreaming of adding to your closet this spring?
For Boy. by Band of Outsiders' spring look book, Scott Sternberg took yet another one of our favorite actresses on a dreamy, well-dressed Los Angele
What New York girl doesn't dream of one day owning a wardrobe that's as cool and self-possessed as Diane Keaton's in Manhattan? Well thanks to BOY by Band of Outsiders' Pre-Fall collection, that dream can be your reality (provided you have a fat wallet too, of course). Designer Scott Sternberg said he had Keaton in mind when designing the collection, which is chockfull of tomboy separates, and librarian-chic skirt suits and dresses. "I was re-watching Manhattan for like the 15th time," he said. "And that way of dressing that you see in Diane Keaton's character - corduroy suits, button ups, a certain type of plaid, a high neck, etc. - just seemed really fresh, or close to it...certainly in need of an update but the nice start of an idea about dressing for the fall."
Since Scott Sternberg released the polaroids of Harry Potter's Rupert Grint and Tom Felton that would act as Band of Outsiders' fall menswear campaign, we've been anxiously awaiting the debut of the women's counterpart, and here it finally is! This one features gorgeous Spanish actress Elena Anaya, who stars opposite Antonio Banderas in the new Pedro Almodóvar film, The Skin I Live In. Sternberg's fall collection for Boy had a late '70s preppy tomboyish charm that comes alive in these polaroids, which he shot about a week ago at a private residence in Beverly Hills. I'm not sure if it's the hazy L.A. backdrop or Anaya's jealousy-inducing physical perfection, but they make me want to buy everything in this collection even more than I already did.

450 West, the venue where Band of Outsiders staged its first-ever runway show, wasn't set up like a movie set. But Los Angeles-based designer Scott Sternberg did pull a stunt. At the beginning of the show, with The Doors playing in the background, male models popped out of boxes suspended from the ceiling, crawling down to the runway on thick rope. This set the stage for a hiking-inspired collection, but what it also did was make the audience ooh and ahh, biting into our lemony Momofuku cookies with the excitement of kids at the cinema. What came next were three separate runway shows. First, Band of Outsiders for men, then Boy for women, then Girl, a lower-priced line also for the ladies.
