THELUXELIFE.COM: TOP TV FASHION LIST

Mad-Mentheluxelife_logo_150x62THE LIST: TOP FIVE TV FASHIONS
By Jennifer Choy

It all started with ‘Sex and the City’ … Maybe it was when Carrie wore her infamous tutu while prancing down the streets of New York that we really started noticing that show’s fashions. But, for whatever reason, we never stopped. Costume designer Patricia Field, who likely lived in relative anonymity, became a household name and television fashion was never the same. Can I get an amen?!

Though ‘Sex and the City’ is long gone, our obsession with TV fashion has remained. We seem to care as much about the clothing worn by our favourite television characters as we do about character development and plot-lines.

So forget about the runways, let’s take a look at some of the most stylish television [characters] to hit the airwaves… (+more)

I TOLD @COSMOPOLITAN THE ONLY #NYFW COLLECTION I MADE A PRIORITY TO SEE IN PERSON WAS @PROJECTRUNWAY’S!

ericdaman_style_cosmopolitan2carrie_diaries_nyfw_project_runway_cosmopolitanWHEN MY CARRIE DIARIES FASHION RADAR WENT BEZERK!

Eric Daman, the Gossip Girl style maestro, in the throes of shooting the new season of The Carrie Diaries, who also assisted costume designer Patricia Field on Sex and the City, told @Cosmopolitan’s Michelle Ruiz how he’s sexing up Carrie Bradshaw’s style in season two, and why he’s scouring the Fashion Week runways online— just like the rest of us!

nyfw_stacy_bendet__project_runway_cosmopolitanMR: How is Carrie’s style going to evolve in season two?
ED:
Well, Carrie spent the summer in NYC. With any 18-year-old girl, it’s going to have an effect on her fashion. It’s a big part of a girl’s identity. Having met Samantha, we’re going to see Carrie exploring a little more body con, be a bit sexier, less ‘Connecticut’ when she’s in school. (+more)

eric_daman_nyfw_samantha_jones_style_project_runway_cosmopolitanMR: Do you use NYFW to shop for Carrie?
ED:
We’re filming episodes now and it’s fun, but the days are long and high stress. I know I can peruse NYFW online, but this season I was a guest judge on Project Runway and decided to see their collection in person— and I definitely saw things I’d use on the show. (+more)

MR: What at NYFW screamed The Carrie Diaries to you the loudest?
ED:
Stacey Bendet has a great overall Carrie look at Alice + Olivia. The whole Rodarte collection feels very 80s hair band girl. I think we could definitely see some of that on Samantha. Dom Streater had clear plastic trench coats that Larissa could definitely rock! (+more)

#FASHIONFRIDAYS: I TOLD @TEENVOGUE @LINDSEYGORT ROCKS FIERCE #80SFASHION FROM @URBANOUTFITTERS @GUESS @VERSACE

samantha-jones-carries-diaries-big‘Carrie Diaries’ Exclusive! Samantha Jones’s Style Secrets

Costume designer Eric Daman fills us on what to expect from the newest (and ’80s-est) Carrie Diaries character, Samantha Jones.

TeenVogue: How would you compare Carrie Diaries Samantha to Sex and the City Samantha? On SATC, Samantha’s style was actually sort of ’80s with all those suits!

Eric: Totally. When we met Samantha in Sex and the City, she’s older and her style’s more elevated, but in The Carrie Diaries, she’s in fringed T-shirts and leather skirts and layers of chunky studded belts. She’s growing up in the rock world, getting her first taste of power, and the power suits she wears in the ’90s are definitely a carryover of those from the ’80s.

TeenVogue: What brands are you dressing her in?

Eric: We did a big sweep of the fast fashion stores—there’s a lot of H&M and Topshop. Material Girl from Macy’s has tons of great pieces, and so do Bebe and Guess. We’re actually using vintage Guess which seems very appropriate, but the new Guess collection is also kind of perfect. Urban Outfitters has leather bralets and lace crop tops, and even though these pieces have an ’90s feel, we tailor them to have more of an ’80s silhouette. She’s into Manolo Blahnik shoes, and their pointy shape is key to her style. We’re also using things from Rodarte‘s acid-wash collection that are really perfect and Versace’s Versus line has a great leather jacket with gold studs. It feels very tongue-in-cheek and overdone, but that’s what those girls wore!

Read the full article by Julia Rubin about how Samantha’s style influences Carrie’s fashion choices in season two and what 80′s inspired trends you’ll want to discover on TeenVogue.com!
