Karl Lagerfeld might well be the most prolific designer producing work today. (Sorry, Alexander Wang.) Not only does he produce three full Chanel collections a year, but each lineup is incredibly robust, with anywhere from 50 to 100 looks walking the runway each time.
We're going to make a bold statement here, but as soon as you scroll through the pictures we've rounded up you'll understand why: Derek Blasberg may just be the most-well connected person in fashion—with the best Instagram account on the internet. It's fun to follow brands, models, celebrities, stylists, and designers for behind-the-scenes snaps of your favorite faces and places in fashion, but in Blasberg's world you get all of that in one place and more.

The mystery and allure of ancient culture has been the inspiration for countless 20th century designers. Consider the Paisley motif that originated over 2000 years ago out of Persia, once a Victorian favorite and still being reinterpreted today. In 1922 the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s tomb sparked a frenzy for Egyptian inspired fashion. The aesthetics of the ancients provide rich design inspiration and none more so than the styles of Classical Greece where typical costume consisted of a sheath style garment, artfully joined and gathered at the shoulders then girdled at the waist. It fell in soft folds and was left open at the sides. Over this was draped some form of mantle or cloak. The only surviving examples we have of these garments are those depicted in the artwork of the day… stone statues, painted pottery and murals.
These works of art intrigued many of the great designers. Paul Poiret, with his gathered column dresses that abandoned the corseted silhouette of his day, Madeleine Vionnet, Jean Desses and Madame Grès…all design geniuses, spent entire careers engineering their own unique art of the drape, producing signature creations fit for a Goddess.

In the 1950s the Aphrodite look took a more stylized turn since the fashion du jour was more about hourglass curves. It was a time of unbridled glamour and femininity. Ancient Greek influence remained popular but was reinterpreted to fit the preferred silhouette of structured bodices, nipped in waists and skirts that were full and voluminous or body hugging and narrow. Ancient inspiration manifested in details of controlled folds and strategically placed panels.
The following images are Grecian inspired dresses by Frank Starr Originals in 1956. Innovative treatments were employed. They used filmy fabrics to create sweeping cowls which added drama to the back of the dress. Bustlines were highlighted with draped pleats and swags were used to adorn narrow skirts. These elements captured the essence of Hellenic times in a thoroughly contemporary way.
To this day we are still see reinterpretations of the Grecian style. So, what are the key elements to look for when shopping for this ever flattering timeless silhouette?
• Dresses that have drapes and folds, which are ideal for enhancing feminine curves in a most flattering way.
•Column versions which elongate the body with a slimming effect.
•Strategically placed sashes and swags can hide body imperfections or provide cover without sacrificing sensuality.
•Fabrics like jersey or chiffon that are draped in interesting ways.
•One shoulder bodice styles are also an iconic look attributed to the Greeks, though back then it was men who sported the one shoulder look, as women were not allowed to bare any skin.
Few of us could ever hope to wear a genuine M. Grès or a Vionnet, they are as rare as hens teeth and would cost a kings ransom. However there are many affordable Mid Century and later Grecian style dresses available today. If you search for terms like vintage goddess dress or vintage Grecian style dress you will find plenty to choose from. So with holiday party time fast approaching, consider celebrating in glamorous goddess style!

As I walked along Rue Cambon I saw this young lady from the back and thought how sexy and almost daring she looked wearing what appeared to be basically- from my perspective – a sport-coat and legs. As I walked past her and my perspective changed, I stopped and asked if I could take a photo of her. The same look from the front totally changed my perception. With her blouse buttoned to the neck and a sweater over it, her look from the front, is actually quite quaint and demure.

A Winter (but most of all snow) essential is the snow boot! I love the boots in a what-I-call “Marc Jacobs styling” with plaided shirts, skinny jeans, heavy socks and bright colored puffer jackets or beanies with pom pom’s. The Winter Wonderland styling is appealing but not the only thing why I love this trend; the idea of cozy comfy warm dry feet is because I will never forget my first Winter in New York, the heavy snow created some serious wet, cold feet drama (after I happily jumped in the snow after years of snowless Winters) and the salt created these weird white stains on my favorite vintage boots. I really love Canadian Pajar’s different styles (the fur snow boots and the high rise version of the classic artic boots are awesome and give different options on the classic artic boot) (and yes, I trust Canadian’s know snow!)
