A Sly Wink to Pinups of the Past

Clifford, 21, a recent college graduate and an art photographer, recalled that as far back as high school she was keen to trade the wan aesthetic that defined her crowd for something with a bit more ... oomph. She found it one day while sifting through a trash container, where she unearthed a dog-eared 1950s Playboy. Inside were photographs of showing off the trademark cherry-tone lips and little-girl bangs that made her the most popular pinup of her day. “I know that back in the ’50s, her images were porno material, but they’re classy now,” Ms. Clifford said. In deference to her new idol, she promptly trimmed her bangs and painted on winged eyeliner. More siren than sylph, those women derive a sense of chic, and an unexpected emotional comfort, from reinventing themselves as contemporary incarnations of Ms. Staples of the pinup wardrobe have gained a surprising cachet on college campuses.

Hiroko Masuike/The New York Times. Video: Tour the ‘Schiaparelli and Prada’ Met Exhibit, Plus a Q&A With Curator Andrew Bolton. After yesterday's press preview of the Met Costume Institute's new exhibit, "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations," we got our own private tour with Andrew Bolton, who co-curated the show with Harold Koda. He wasn't coy about some of the exhibit's hairier aspects, admitting that "initially Miuccia was rather baffled by the pairing of Schiaparelli and herself. " To write the scripts for the fictional "conversations" between the two designers, Bolton spent months combing through Schiaparelli's autobiography, interviewing Miuccia Prada in Milan, and sifting through both designers' archives. He told us all about the process of putting the show together and how it differs from last year's record-breaking McQueen exhibit; you can also see a video tour of the galleries. So, when was this actually finished?

New York Fashion Week 2012: A Brief History

Instead, the world looked to the chic city of Paris for sartorial inspiration. Fashion magazines like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar filled their pages with the aspirational attire of the French, even if the styles weren’t readily available to the average American consumer. This all changed in 1943. As France was fighting in World War II, fashion journalists were unable to get to Paris for their biannual style excursions. A prominent fashion publicist named Eleanor Lambert recognized that this was an opportunity to solidify America’s place among the international fashion community.

When Reese Witherspoon stepped out in 2007, after her breakup with Ryan Phillippe, her tight yellow Nina Ricci dress lent her an unaccustomed oomph.

She was sexier than ever, so it seemed. Two years ago, Maggie Gyllenhaal injected spirit into her modest indie profile with a peach-tone mermaid silhouette by Roland Mouret. The following year, at the Oscars, Katherine Heigl worked her curves, her formfitting scarlet gown transforming her from a daffy approachable girl-next-door into a pneumatically contoured cinema diva. “That dress was a game-changer,” said Nicole Chavez, who coaxed Ms.

But while the designers aren't new faces, the judges, host, and mentor all are — designers Georgina Chapman and Isaac Mizrahi, model Angela Lindvall, and Marie Claire editor Joanna Coles, respectively. And while Michael, Nina, and Heidi (along with her auf's) will be missed, it's arguably Tim Gunn who we'll all shed the most tears over. Which leaves Joanna Coles stepping into the toughest spot, taking on the role of the designers' mentor. We spoke with Coles about her time in the Runway workroom, what we can look forward to on the show's upcoming episodes, and how the experience changed her personal style.

Sadly, we can’t help them with the state of their colons or shoe closets, but we can single out a handful of stars who can rest easy this holiday season knowing that no matter what else went awry, their wardrobe did not. So herein we present our Best 11 of ’11, so chosen for the size of the sartorial splash they made, and, of course, the numerical symmetry of the name. We are nothing if not exacting.
