NYFW: Angelina Jolie Leg Moments

Remember the 2012 Oscars?   Remember Angelina's leg?  Oh, you need a refresher?  Here you go.

In the Spring, everyone will be able to embody Angelina's pose.  Leg slits seemed to pop up in long dresses on runway after runway.  Sex appeal and parody Twitter accounts are in our fashion futures.  Leg slits are hot, there is no denying that one.  Angelina Jolie's pose is questionable.  I can picture many girls posing for their senior prom portraits like her, and that's not a photo your mom wants to frame.  Here are examples of the leg slit done right.

Is there a term I'm missing or is it just called a leg slit?  Can we think of a better word for a thigh grazing slash in a dress?  I'm at a loss here.  Help me out in the comments, people!

Fashion Week Recap: White on White

on White.  Instead of doing an everyday/this is what happened/this is what I think post, I decided to pick out my favorite looks from NYFW and share them.  My first favorite trend is white on white.

Enter in (L to R): Rachel Zoe, Kimberly Ovitz, BCBG Max Azria, DKNY, Alexander Wang
Why do I like white on white?  It's easy to match.  White pants? Boom. Match those babies with a white v-neck.  White dress? Why not throw on some white shoes? By the end of the day, everyone will know what you had for breakfast, lunch and dinner! .... OK maybe just if you have a problem spilling things on yourself (like me). To be honest, I just spilled coffee down my shirt after I typed that line. While the white on white trend not be for me, it definitely could work for literally anyone else. Photos from,
