>> Out with the Kirsten Dunst, in with the Vanessa Paradis for Miuccia Prada's scuba-inspired Fall 2008 Miu Miu collection. Prada chose the former Chanel face because of her "powerful independence" and "overlapping qualities of fragility and feminine strength." Looks like Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott have been here to work their usual . . .
This weekend we popped into Opening Ceremony and picked up a pair of Grey Ant High Waist Belted Slacks that nearly blew all of our other trousers out of the water. That said, a Coutorture Immaterial is borne. These trousers rightly fit in with our new fashion kick of the moment, namely, sophisticated clothing that enhances ones curves. The high waist silhouette always did this for us but with new Herve Leger-type frocks also making a huge comeback, we're going to apply the rule to our entire wardrobe. These trousers come even higher than mid waist (hello, 11 inch rise) and turn wide leg (no, they do not flare) by the bottom. A good pair of trousers never hurt anyone and we're going to say that this pair is a choice we wholeheartedly endorse. For more on women looking like women, check out our other super high waist picks below, and, Alexander McQueen's menswear collection which featured a few bombshell looks for the gals.
