Helena Bonham Carter is a fashion "genius". The 'King's Speech' star is famous for her eccentric dress sense including famously wearing one red and one green shoe to this year's Golden Globe Awards but Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman loves her style. She says Helena is "a genius who...

Of Karl Lagerfeld, a friend of many years, she says: "He's a living genius and he's fearless." As for Roberto Cavalli, Donatella opines: "I think that to do a collection — how do you say — as an homage to Versace, this is fine. But when you do a lot of collections as an homage to Versace —...

Vivienne Westwood's team posted this pic on the company's Facebook page earlier today, and it reminded me of how long I've admired the genius that is Auntie Viv. The "Buffalo Girls" collection from FW 82/83 was our eccentric aunt's last collaboration with then boyfriend, punk uncle, Malcolm...

Once worn as an "Eff you!" to society (or by dorky guys who just didn't know any better), they've slowly inched their way into the "real" wardrobes of fashion's elite. Blame - or thank - Alexander Wang and his pro-sweat T line. This season, designers are taking the sweatpant out of the...
