The pretty to the ugly: 2013’s key fashion moments



< Previous Page


Who knew that punk would become high fashion? That development seemed to crystallize in May, when the hallowed halls of The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted a new Costume Institute exhibit, "Punk: Chaos to Culture," celebrating a movement that embraced anarchy in the 1970s. "Despite its best intentions, punk has come to symbolize integrity and authenticity," said curator Andrew Bolton.

The flat shoe, the pixie cut

Think short, ladies! In shoe stores this year, you could see a trend toward flats, including a notable reinterpretation of those chunky Birkenstocks. The first ripple effect would be comfort, of course, but the changes are more profound, notes Virginia Smith, Vogue’s fashion market and accessories director: "Every woman wants a flat right now, and that has a big impact on fashion because it changes proportion." Another trend: pixie hair, on everyone from Michelle Williams to Anne Hathaway to Jennifer Lawrence. "It will have an effect beyond celebrity and the runway," Smith says. "A lot of these women are very influential."

Trendsetter Miley?

Speaking of influence, dare we call Miley Cyrus a trendsetter? She was already a trailblazer with her pixie cut from 2012, but hey, you probably were too busy watching the stuck-out tongue, teddy-bear leotard and nude bikini (which falls into the baring-it-all trend at the MTV Video Music Awards). Only weeks later, she was all elegance in sequined Marc Jacobs at the Night of Stars gala. Miley the fashion icon? Not by the standard definition. But heading into 2014 she was one of the most-watched people on the planet. "Blurred Lines," indeed.
