After a few (or several) tough seasons in the industry, 2014 marked the start of an emerging optimism in fashion. After years of black and leather and black leather, finally a lighter and mood has come out of the wood works. We started to see things like color, full skirts and -- my favorite - white appearing on the catwalks and the red carpet. Here are my favorite 10 fashion moments of this year.
#10 - Fashion Blogger in Paris
I love this maxi tutu, and I love how she is playing it up. So un-French.
#9 - Brazil Fashion Week
I was so honored to be invited to sit front row this year at Brazil Fashion Week. So much talent. So much beading. Truly inspiring.
#8 - Kenall Jenner's Blue Suit
Look at those legs!
#7 - Jared Leto at the Oscars
He is always doing something different. The Jesus Christ hair do with retro white tux jacket is a classic.
#6 - New York Fashion Week, Street Style
How refreshing to see color on the streets of New York - especially during fashion week. And I always like seeing hats with ears.
#5 - Missoni, Spring 2015
I really found that they reinvented their signature 60's zigzag stripes this season in light chiffons and a fresh color palette. Plus there were those yummy lips.
#4 - Blake Lively, wearing Chanel at the Cannes Film Festival
The woman is a stunner, but especially in this frosty Chanel Couture gown. And with those loose toussles of hair. Yes.
#3 - Chanel Fall 2014 Supermarket Show
Karl never disappoints. This star-studded show goes down in history. Not only for the kitschy use of a supermarket, but also because all of the editors tried to steal everything after the show (toilet paper, cheese, etc) -- and got busted.
#2 - Lupita Nyongo, wearing Prada at the Oscars
Even though I was not impressed with her comment, "I designed this dress with the help of Prada" (WTF?), this is still one of my most favorite red carpet looks, ever.
#1 - Rihanna's Boobs, Paris Fashion Week
Rihanna was all over the Paris Fashion Week, having attended the most A list shows like Balmain, Dior, Lanvin McCartney... and always, her boobs were there along for moral support. This pic was taken at one of the after-parties.
