Bella Thorne is the proud owner of 5.22 million Twitter followers and counting, but chances are if you’re over the age of 14, then you’ve never seen her do what she does best. That would be singing and dancing, and the 16 year old has been doing it for years on The Disney Channel as the aspiring young dancer CeCe on the the show Shake It Up. But that was then and this is now. Like Disney princesses Miley and Selena before her, Thorne is tossing her tiara in the dumpster just outside company HQ, as she sets out to pursue a serious acting and career. This year alone she has a debut album coming out, and roles in the thrillers Big Sky and Home Invasion, along with the a supporting role in the Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler reunion Blended. Thorne has also begun shooting Amityville, a remake of the horror classic. And when she’s not dodging demons on camera, the Florida native is busy remaking herself into a designer darling, having been a ubiquitous presence at last fall’s New York Fashion Week. So when we dressed her up in the latest streetwear in this exclusive editorial, Thorne was more than happy to play the part. Photography by Naj Jamai. Styling by Marissa Peden.
Last year we pointed you in the direction of Brooklyn-based design duo Elizabeth Ammerman and Eric Schlosberg, whose label, Ammerman Schlosberg, blazed onto the fashion scene last fall when, as winners of the V Files Made Fashion contest, they were included in much buzzed about showcase of emerging design talents. Now, for their follow-up FW14 collection, these two Luxury LOL-itas (coined that, we did) have come up with rule-breaking line that cribs from pharmacy Halloween costumes and and comic book convention cosplay. ”This season is super LOL. It’s our idea of the best and worst moments in costume history,” they said, “all mashed up into the ultimate slutty video game MAIDen.” Check it out above.

Parisian fashion collective Andrea Crews debuted their AW14 collection last week in a video directed by Nicolas Davenel.

Maya Fuhr and Nicole Dagenais, two creative women from Toronto, embarked on a project that would involve peeking inside the imaginations of some kindred spirits, which included artists and photographers like Agathe Snow, Jeanette Hayes, and Sara Cwynar. What they got were school notes, teen diaries, sketchbooks, doodles, and some pretty sweet pics, all showcasing each artist’s unique personality and art aesthetic. We dare you to look.

We’re very aware that New York Fashion Week ended a couple of weeks ago, and that on the Internet space-time continuum, any coverage of NYFW-related events can be considered stale. But unlike most of her counterparts, photographer Robin Siegel shoots on film, which means her photos take time to develop. Remember that? Developing film? Of course not, because your brain, like ours, has been rewired as a hive of impatience and there’s no going back. but enough of that. Here’re a very pretty gallery of photos from New York Fashion, featuring some familiar faces.
During London Fashion Week, which wrapped up last week, photographer Paul Phung used his trusty camera to capture all the goodness that happens when an army of creative people get together to celebrate style. This is what he saw.
