How to wear: Leather pants!

A few years ago, a great pair of leather pants was hard to come by. Now, thankfully, every designer and brand is making a different version of the perfect pair. Here, our favorite ways to wear them, inspired by the street and the runway — plus options for every budget.

1. Wear them lose: LA ladies will love the looser cuts, which work better in warm climates and give off a casual cool vibe. 


Style it with: 

 T by Alexander Wang. Jersey T-Shirt, 80.
Nars. Semi Matte Lipstick, $26.
Aquazzura. Amazon Elaphe Sandals, $795.

2. Wear them like leggins: A pair of ultra-skinny leather pants will be your go-to during the winter months for work, weekend or a night out.


Style it with: 

Mango. Pinstripe Blazer, $130.
Zara. High Heel Court Shoe, $100.
Tom Ford. Nail Lacquer in Viper, $32.

3. Wear them biker style: If you want something in your closet that'll add instant edge, opt for a pair of leather pants with zippers or a moto-inspired cut.


Style it with:

Equipment. Ghost Plaid Blouse, $248.
Sam Edelman. Margo Ankle Boots, $200.
Le Metier de Beaute. Precision Liquid Liner, $42.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2013

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - one of the biggest and most expensive extravaganzas on the style calendar - took place in New York last wednesday.
A riot of colours, crystals and jaw-dropping costumes, this year's show took birds of paradise, a British invasion and Parisian nights as its themes with 40 models parading down the catwalk and a multitude of wings. A star-studded affair, the big names weren't only bedecked in lingerie - live entertainment came courtesy of Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy and A Great Big World, while from the front row Valentino Garavani, Olivia Palermo and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld watched on.
On the catwalk, Malaika Firth and Josephine Skriver made their debuts, while veteran Angels Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima were back. Candice Swanepoel was bestowed the honour of modelling this year's fantasy bra - the most expensive ever with a value of $10 million. Here are some of my fave outfits:

Life Editorials by Martin Vallin!

I just find out the stunning editorials of Martin Vallin, I love how he make luxury accessories — shoes, bags, jewelry — seem more like priceless art objects from a museum. Creating unexpected juxtapositions of shapes, styles, and textures, Vallin puts creativity and whimsicality back into still-life. He clearly comes from a surrealist point of view and isn’t afraid to break rules when it comes to composition and color, making almost collage-like images that have character and tell a story.
