The on-line magazine Rookie is just one of the many creative outlets FROCK admires by the fashion wunderkind Tavi Gevinson. In this shoot stylist Laia Garcia dresses future prom attendees in their favorite looks, a few selected from FROCK vintage.
One of our favorite looks for Spring 2012 are all the beautiful pastel hues out there these days. Whether it be a single solid color or in a soft floral pattern, it is a look just about anyone feels beautiful in. A gentle pastel pink Norma Kamali high waist skirt does the trick, as does a pale blue linen Yves Saint Laurent button front jumper dress. Perfect for going from day right into night. One of our new favorites is a Mr. Blackwell floral print cotton spaghetti strap dress with matching caplet. Coming from the man who critiqued what women wore, you know this dress is sure to be a hit. Any way you choose to wear this look, it’s sure to brighten the day.
For the Carnegie Hall Medal Of Excellence Gala in New York honoring Bill Cunningham Sarah Jessica Parker wears a vintage Oscar de la Renta deep metal grey silk bustle back strapless gown from FROCK. She not only loved the style and look of the dress, but also wanted to wear a design by one of her co-chairs for the evening, Oscar de la Renta himself.
Without a doubt we think she look absolutely stunning and just about stole the show, although the high-light of the evening certainly was the speech given by Bill Cunningham. A class act, New York City institution and a man like no other.
HBO’s Girls is one of the most anticipated TV series to premiere this season and we couldn’t be more excited that it’s finally here! This morning one of its bright stars, Allison Williams, went on the Today Show to promote the show wearing none other than Valentino from FROCK!! Williams looked fantastic in the vintage pink halter/shoulder strap dress.
Though the show revolves around four women living in the city, this may be the only similarity it shares to Sex and the City. It’s more like the harsh realities of being a 20-something girl in the city and realizing life isn’t just a round of cosmos with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. Check out the interview below to see Allison in our adorable Valentino number and learn more about Girls premiering April 15th on HBO.

Upon hearing the news that Raf Simons is taking his place as head designer at DIOR, it made us stop and think. There has been an abundance of great talent that has passed through this legendary french design house. Starting with the first, the namesake, CHRISTIAN DIOR, and then the brief, but brilliant reign of YVES SAINT LAURENT, and later on the appointment of GIANFRANCO FERRE. Each a genius, they embody the ideal of the “head designer”; focused, at times outrageous, but always masterful with their designs. As the next designer approaches the throne of such a well loved and respected house, we hope he takes a cue from history, while also possessing a strong vision to see DIOR through its next incarnation.
