Eazy Breezy

The new Chloé girl is a total babe. For Fall, she's inspired by pirates, Brook Shields in the eighties, Christian Lacroix's Baroque Romanticism and Gianni Versace's early experiments with languid volume. Whether in gold satin pirate boots or velvet overalls with crystal studded straps, her manifesto reads clear: power babe not afraid to decorate. Newly appointed Creative Director Hannah McCibbon ain't so bad herself. Taking her bow at the Fall 2009 collection in chic sweats tucked into a stiletto ankle boot, she gave her finger to Parisian formality and looked smoking doing it.
