I don't know if any of you fashionistas out there caught the style segment on the "Today" show this morning, but interestingly, it featured inexpensive looks as demonstrated by Vogue magazine (May issue shown above).
What makes this newsworthy - fashion-wise - is that Vogue rarely, if ever, features clothing that's not haute couture. In other words, bucks deluxe.
Sally Singer, Vogue's fashion news/features director, was on hand to discuss the looks, several of which come from the Gap's new "Design Editions." There are shirts and great dresses - all in white. Prices range from $68 to $88 at the store's Web site and select flagship stores. (There's one in San Francisco.)
As for the May cover, Vogue, also for the first time since 1992, put its picks for "The World's Next Top Models" on a two-fold cover.
A copy of the 1992 cover appears on page 70. And guess who was in that mix? Who else but Cindy Crawford (who's now selling furniture) and Naomi Campbell (who likes to throw phones).
On the current cover, the top 10 models are all wearing white shirts from the Gap - with uber-expensive skirts. Love the fold-out. It's nice to see models wearing great clothes instead of a close-up of yet another air-brushed celebrity. It's also nice to see Vogue coming down a bit in their fashion price points.
Not every girl can afford Oscar de la Renta. Although we can dream!
