After years of tough and edgy looks inspired by the Emmanuelle Alts and Kate Lanphears (who, btw, I love) of the world, maybe it’s time for young women to dress like ladies once again? Why do most of the cool kids dress as if they’re going into battle? Today’s armor consists of menswear-inspired pieces, tough, protective jackets, heavy, clunky shoes and strong satchels. Don’t you think it’s nice and refreshing to see girls embrace their feminine side? I caught up with my friend Stephanie after the Oscar de la Renta show last night. She looked terrific in her Dolce & Gabbana dress and Miu Miu shoes.
