Fashion’s Favorite Pets

eptember sees not only the start of the women’s wear fashion season, but also the beginning of the fashion book season. As fall unfurls, glossy and gorgeous coffee table books appear: Grace Coddington’s “Grace: The American Vogue Years”; Alix Browne’s “Runway: The Spectacle of Fashion”; and Donatella Versace’s “Versace,” to name a few. Yet among them, one stands out: “Neville Jacobs: I’m Marc’s Dog,” a compilation of photographs taken by Nicolas Newbold of Marc Jacobs’s dog, a.k.a. Neville Jacobs.

THE WORST FASHION TRENDS IN HISTORY

By Brunson Stafford You might have spent some time regretting some of your recent fashion choices, but your choices are probably not nearly as bad as some that have been made by fashion designers in the past. These fashion “trends” of the past may seem bizarre on first glance, but when you take a closer look at them things start to get really weird! Many of the fashion trends in the past have focused on making women more appealing, but they were also used for more nefarious purposes.
