A scroll through the discovery page of Instagram revealed a pretty blonde smiling back wearing a rainbow sequin Ashish dress. It took me a couple of seconds to realise who I was looking at. This was celeb stylist Angie Smith’s client This Morning's Holly Willoughby.

I’m yet to find a shoe that is as universally hated as Crocs. Everything about them reeks of ugliness: they make your feet look disproportionately large, they’re unnecessarily clunky, and they are embarrassingly practical. So when Balenciaga designer, Demna Gvasalia, sent a 10cm platform-version of the monstrosities down the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week, the Internet was shocked.

But should we have been so surprised? Recent years have seen the meteoric rise of the anti-fashion aesthetic. Designers Gucci and Vetements are undoubtedly some of the most talked about brands at the moment, with creative directors pushing, quite simply, ugly clothes. But these designers aren’t alone. The various fashion weeks were rife with ugly clothing – whether Shayne Oliver’s bra bags for Helmut Lang (padded and with a zipper at the top of each breast to allow quick access), or Dior, once known for its voluptuous shapes and silhouettes, sending slogan T-shirts down the runway.

Fashion has always dabbled in ugliness. Fashion is a business, and has always been evolving to find the new must-have item to increase profits, and static ideas of beauty do not ring well for a business trying to sell you new clothing faster than your old clothing needs replacing. But the extent of the ugly clothing aesthetic truly is staggering.

With Instagram and Youtube, it seems that ugliness is the only way for fashion to stand out. The rise of Youtubers has caused the eradication of the days of teenagers with clear smudges of orange foundation on their neck, wonky eyeliner or heavy black eyes; many 14-year-olds now know how to contour.

Tis true that fashion is an essential part of our lives. The good part is that fashion has reached the online stores and now e-shopping is the best bet, especially for women.

Want to buy your favourite piece, just log on to the website and click on your pick and it will be delivered to you at your doorstep and that too without wasting a lot of time and energy.

Online stores are a blessing for those who don’t want to run around the malls and markets to find the perfect dress, shoes, accessories etc. This is what online clothing brand ‘Lulusar’ is all about. It provides quality fashion and good aesthetics and that too at an affordable price. The brand is just a few months old and offers designs with intricate detail to create the perfect wardrobe for modern, independent women. And quite recently, ‘Lulusar’ showcased its ranges ‘Yonsil’ and ‘Niyill’ in Karachi. The brand takes its title from the iconic Lulusar Lake surrounded my mountain peaks in Kaghan Valley Pakistan.

Both ‘Yonsil’ and ‘Niyill’ collections, exhibited by Lulusar take their titles from the villages surrounding the mirror like Lulsar Lake in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The two collections have chic cuts and immaculate detailing. Yonsil, plays with the concept of vibrant colour blocks and entrancing patterns with the brilliant contrast of classic whites with bursts of colour using the best of fabrics such as chiffons and cottons. The silhouettes and drapes exude a sporty luxe charm which gives it a perfect blend of a casual yet sleek look. Niyill, on the other hand, is all about denim. With its vogue variation in pants and silhouettes, this one sets a real style statement. The exquisite embellishments and neat trimmings add to the collection with great eclat making it stand out.

Speaking about the collection, the Brand Director, Fawad Shah said, “We observed that there is a desire for a new kind of western wear which is modern and sophisticated yet cool and casual but there aren’t many local alternatives to choose from. Hence we decided to create something that would fulfil that demand. We believe in consistent quality control and providing the best of fashion in affordable price range. We are constantly striving to keep up with the latest fashion trends and give our clientele something new with every collection. Our vision is youthful. Modern and contemporary fashion which is accessible and affordable at the same time, hence our mode of selling is hassle free and ensures on time delivery with great customer care.”

The exhibition was well attended by a large number of media personalities and celebrities including Nida Yasir, Sajal Aly, Amna Ilyas among others. The collection was received well with the attendees due to its minimalistic and fashion forward designs.

Offred, Prince, or a Walnut Whip? The thinking person’s style icons for autumn

Prince: tailoring

Sure, one of Prince’s most memorable outfits consisted of a trench coat, pants and thigh-high stockings. But AW17 is all about his mid-80s tour wardrobe. See, for inspo, the purple, ruched suit of the Purple Rain tour, or the banana-yellow suit – with cropped jacket – for Parade, both of which had the shoulders and shapes of the Balenciaga menswear. Some of these will be showcased in the upcoming My Name Is Prince exhibition at the O2. Also on display is the cloud-covered design worn in the Raspberry Beret video – the kind of suit that dreams are made of. Lauren Cochrane

German photographer Thomas Ruff has been documenting modern suburbia and its people for over four decades, but his passport-style portraits (the focus of a new exhibition at London’s Whitechapel Gallery) are the most relevant for your wardrobe this season. We’ve spotted accidental references to Balenciaga’s oversized earrings, Christopher Kane’s neutral pastel trenches, and here – casual minimalism, finished with a brooch, which manages to be both Céline and Gucci.

9 Women On How They Use Fashion To Feel Empowered

Everyone has their own method to feel like a total boss, and one of them is undoubtedly through style. Yes, fashion can be fun and frivolous, but it can be remarkably potent too.

For proof, look no further than H&M's new Fall Collection. Inspired by uber femme women, the collection is full of kickass pieces that mix tailoring with full-on glam. Whether it's the metallic mini dress, thigh-high red boots or sharp power suit, they instantly conjure up plenty of chutzpah.

So how to use these clothes for an instant uplift? We asked some female power players to reveal their secrets. Read on for a roster of confessions on how they dress with confidence...

For me, sartorial confidence comes from key accessories: a wide belt, a pair of cocktail earrings, some statement shoes (current favourites are yellow pointed mules à la Carrie) and a scraped back smooth hairstyle, typically a low middle-part bun. As I get older, my clothes get easier to wear and arguably less flamboyant and my confidence comes from fail-safe 'enhancers'. For someone else, that might be a crisp mans shirt worn with skinny trousers to give a strong silhouette; or a high necked, long sleeved long dress that reveals nothing but fits like a glove and is somehow the sexiest thing of all. In truth, both of those are good! But nothing, for me, beats a scraped back bun and a pair of brightly hued earrings. It shows the world you're hiding from nothing — and no-one!I think empowerment is all about confidence and fashion is an amazing tool to reflect that. For me, it's about having a highly personal aesthetic—that could be about prints, colour, proportion or having the confidence to pair unusual pieces together. When I first went freelance, my confidence was shot and I spent a few weeks moping about in sweatpants. Buying a new pair of jeans that I couldn't really afford helped me find my way back to the positive, mood enhancing benefits that fashion can provide. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with a great printed dress with a nipped in waist and feminine details.Read more at:

Fashion Stars On The Moment They Nailed Style Confidence

The most stylish people somehow manage to make everything look good, don't they? Whether rocking a blazer and jeans or the season's trickiest trend, it's the subtle details – like a clash of colour, or fit of a jacket – that makes every look unique to them.

The art of such confidence? Expert shoemakers Vagabond believes it's all about staying true to yourself. The brand's autumn winter 2017 campaign pays homage to self-expression and stars inspiring transgender models Hari Nef and Casil McArthur.

To celebrate, we asked some of the fashion industry's chicest women about finding confidence in their individuality. Discover the inspiration behind their signature looks and the style secrets they swear by.

"Working at NET-A-PORTER shaped my sense of style, not least because I had the opportunity to invest in some key designer pieces which are still wardrobe stalwarts today. I would describe my personal style as eclectic, bold and heavily inspired by the '60s and '70s. I'm definitely a maximalist!

"For me, a midi-length dress and ankle boots are a failsafe combination. I have an embarrassingly large collection of midi dresses - some vintage, some high street - whereas I tend to invest more in fewer, better quality shoes.

"I suggest creating a Pinterest board and pinning images that inspire you. If I'm lacking in sartorial inspiration, I scroll through my fashion Pinterest board and something will spark an idea".

Kaia Gerber's First New York Fashion Week Included Burgers, Crystal Bodysuits and Puppies

Kaia Gerber is your run of the mill teenager. Like any other girl, she eats burgers in bed, acts silly and has difficulty walking in heels. She just does all this between runway shows.

While the last few weeks have been a roller coaster of events for the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, the young teen is taking it all in stride. After turning 16, taking (and passing) her driver's test and then walking in her first New York Fashion week show, Kaia is in good spirits and ready for more.

The up and coming model took Vogue and director Bardia Zeinali behind the scenes of her first New York Fashion Week and even gave them a peek into her new life as a high fashion model. The footage shows Kaia as who really she is underneath all the makeup and off the runway—that is, ridiculously funny and down to earth.

In between photo shoots and fashion shows, the teen talked about walking in heels—she says, "it's so hard"—and how she would be "bummed out" if she hadn't passed her driver's test. She even got to show off her funny side while posing for cameras, sarcastically musing over the noise of the city below, "New York is not the most quiet city is it?"

This model is hardly fazed by the noise and attention as it isn't her first rodeo—or should we say runway? Kaia has been the face of campaigns for the likes of Marc Jacobs and even Hudson Jeans.

Most recently, the teen made her hotly anticipated debut at NYFW with Raf Simon's Calvin Klein fashion show before strutting her stuff in other shows like Fenty by Rihanna The fame clearly hasn't changed her though, as she still stops to pet dogs on the street and waves hello to passersby.

After her time in New York, the highly chased after model jetted off to England for London's fashion week, before heading to the fashion capital of Milan.

She hopes her honesty will encourage acceptance and tolerance

One of the fashion industry’s most famous up-and-coming models has just revealed that she is transgender.

Teddy Quinlivan might have spent the last week walking for labels like Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Coach and Tory Burch, but now she’s making headlines for a very different reason.

In a special interview with CNN and an accompanying three-part video on her Instagram page, the model revealed publicly for the first time that she is a transgender woman.

Directed by Amber Grace Johnson, the mini-film features Quinlivan speaking openly about how she felt growing up as a male with home movies from her childhood interspersed with a voice-over from her mother.

“I remember living my whole life as male, but feeling like I was playing a part,” she says.

“I always knew I was female, just in my soul, in my heart, in my brain. I kind of knew I had to pretend to be male to appease everybody else. At one point I just stopped giving a f***.”

The model, who came into the spotlight after appearing in a Louis Vuitton show two years ago says that she felt compelled to come out given the current political climate.

There's been violence against transgender people — particularly transgender women of colour — since before I even knew what transgender was. I just felt a great sense of urgency. I'm very fortunate to be in [a] position [that] I never really thought I would be. It's really important to take advantage of a time like this," she explained.

Despite feeling nervous about her announcement, Quinlivan was comforted by the success of fellow trasngender models such as Hari Nef and Anreja Pejic and knowing that it doesn’t signal the end of your career.

“If being transgender is something that gets attached to my name throughout my career, then it's for a worthy cause. But I look forward to the day when it doesn't matter,” she said.

“I don't think it's a problem because I don't think there's anything wrong with being trans.

“I'm a woman first and foremost... I'm a model but I'm also transgender, and I think in a time when I can count most transgender celebrities on my hands, [this] is crucial.”

In light of the revelation, several high profile stars have spoken out in support of her decision to come out as transgender including designer Marc Jacobs.

I respect, admire and support Teddy's decision to come out as transgender,” he told CNN.

“Now more than ever it is vital that we pledge our allegiance to the LGBT community and use our voices to encourage and inspire acceptance, equality, understanding and love.”

The Saint Louis Fashion Fund Heads North for Fashion Week

It might be Fashion Week in New York, but that didn’t stop the Saint Louis Fashion Fund from getting in on the haute celebrations. Working with Mother Model Management, the SLFF hosted a fun party that brought out the likes of designer Timo Weiland, journalist Deborah Roberts, and vintage curator Cameron Silver. The event was meant to highlight the talent emerging from the Midwestern city but also to introduce them to Manhattan’s fashion elite, including Jonathan Becker and Fern Mallis. With SLFF alums having their wares on fashion-forward figures including Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian West, it is only a matter of time before these kids go global.

“I love his colors, the palette,” said Elizabeth von Guttman, founder of System Magazine, which celebrated Sander Lak’s Sies Marjan collection at Lower East Side hot spot The Flower Shop Sunday night. “It’s so refreshing when we’re living in a world that’s quite gloomy. There’s few designers who play with color and take that risk. It gives you a positive outlook on fashion,” she said.

In terms of color, the party did not disappoint. While Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott might have boasted a Kardashian or two, and Alexander Wang had his own “fest,” there are no other parties at NYFW that can boast a true Hollywood legend. We’re talking about Isabella Rossellini, who attended with her son, Roberto Rossellini, who just happened to close out the Sies Marjan show. Mother and son huddled in a corner of the bar (“It was amazing,” the actress said of the show), across the room from sound designer extraordinaire Michel Gaubert and his boyfriend, Ryan Aguilar, holding court at a table. Meanwhile, more of fashion’s favorites, like Theo Wenner, Alyx’s Jennifer Williams, Laura Love, Hamish Bowles, Pamela Love, Mickey Boardman, and Lynn Yaeger, split their time between the homey, nag champa–scented seats upstairs, and the thumping rec room space below (complete with models shooting pool, of course).

And of course, there was Mr. Lak, beaming and relieved after bowing for a collection in his own atelier, a feat that had turned his world upside down for the past week. This was his party, after all, at least the official one. We asked the designer how, unofficially, he really plans to celebrate.

“By sleeping at least 20 hours,” he said. A well-deserved treat, for sure.
