Plus, Dolce & Gabbana to hold first-ever runway show in the Middle East.
"I think once you reach a certain age you realize fashion isn't everything, and you can only own so many clothes."
Plus, Alexa Chung covers "Vogue" UK and models pieces from her upcoming eponymous collection.
These are the rules that those on the other side of the lens live by.
Because, yes, there is definitely a difference.
"Show some respect, learn some manners and get over yourself."
Michael Kors tapped the photographer for its first-ever street style campaign.
TommyTon.com will soon feature more than 15,000 of his premier street style images from the past decade.
Finally, 'Fashion Bros' is back! (Just go with us on this one.)
With the hordes of photographers outside of Fashion Month shows growing exponentially each season, it takes a lot of hustle -- or some top-tier name recognition -- to turn shooting street style from a hobby into a lucrative business.
The former Harper's Bazaar Russia editor has been landing fashion campaigns left and right. How did she do it?
Kanye West delivered a whole rant while wearing a custom Margiela mask.
Because you never know when you might run into Tommy Ton.
Remember Kira Plastinina, the teen daughter of Russian millionaire Sergei Plastinina, who, in 2008, launched a namesake fast fashion line, opened 12 stores in the U.S., closed them, and filed for bankruptcy, all in less than a year? Well, she's back, and we got to chat with her.
If you feel like you didn't see much of street style starlet Taylor Tomasi Hill this past fashion month, that's because you didn't. Tomasi Hill is deliberately avoiding photographers, repeating outfits and slipping in and out of shows ala Anna Wintour, according to our sources. The reason? She reportedly wants her position as Moda Operandi's artistic director to be taken more seriously. To be fair, this doesn't mean she's gone altogether. Tomasi Hill did a photo diary for Harperbazaar.com over fashion week, and was featured on Style.com. But her dialed-back presence should not go unnoticed, as she's not the only one in that first crop of street style stars to selectively avoid the spotlight.
And the fashion circus debate continues. The latest to weigh in is Garage magazine--except instead of bemoaning or celebrating the street style phenomenon one way or another, they merely explore it in this thoughtful new video featuring Tim Blanks, Tommy Ton, Phil Oh (in a bathtub!), Susie Lau and many others. As one might expect, opinions run the gamut.
The traveling menswear circus kicked off last week in London for the city's inaugural men's fashion week, moved to Florence for prestigious menswear tradeshow Pitti Uomo, then on to Milan, and is currently wrapping up in Paris. If there's one thing we've learned from covering Pitti Uomo and perusing Tommy Ton's street style shots for GQ during the men's shows, it's that the boys love to preen and peacock outside the show venues just as much as the girls. But what we like about taking in men's street style is that there seems to be more of an emphasis on styling rather than the "it-items" we see proudly paraded around during the womenswear shows. It's a cuff rolled just-so with crazy colored socks showing underneath. Or a double-breasted blazer tailored to perfection with gloves hanging out of the breast pocket. Or sneakers and a Supreme hat worn with a more tailored look. More often than not, we get styling tips for ourselves.
Tommy Ton opened up to The Talks about being 'addicted' to fashion, feeling judged by the print media, and not particularly loving being called a 'blogger.'
Can't handle the cute. Just watch. Immediately.

One of the best parts (and my favorite part) of Florence's famed menswear trade show Pitti Immagine Uomo is the incredible street style on display. If
In an interview on Stevie Dance's new online shopping zine, Shop Ghost, the street style photog let his design aspirations out of the bag saying, "I definitely feel that another five years [from now] is probably when I would do a collection." While we're sometimes skeptical of fashion admirers becoming designers (Kanye, we're looking at you), Ton is one of the few individuals who is talented and experienced enough to actually pull it off. I mean, can you imagine better market research than to have been photographing fashion's A-list for the past few years?
