Leading designer denim label, MOTHER Denim collaborated with international super model, Candice Swanepoel on a capsule collection inspired by 90's street style. The South African beauty directly referenced Cindy Crawford's look from the famous Pepsi ad in which she sported a tight white tank tucked into a high waisted pair of frayed jean shorts.

Furthermore, the Victoria's Secret Angel crowned each style with her family's crest, a swimming swan, for an endearingly personal finishing touch.

Lastly, this collaboration helps to aid the prevention of the spreading of HIV from mothers to their children by partnering with the South African based organization, mothers2mothers. With portions of the proceeds going towards such a noble cause, this collection retains a soulful quality in addition to being fashionably nostalgic.

Laura Dern: Reminiscent of modern day armor, this completely embellished gunmetal gown from Alberta Ferretti commands attention and flatters the “Wild” actress's long and lean figure. The soft blowout and coordinating accessories compliment the styling, though the necklace is one note too many on this already heavily decorated piece.

2015 Grammy Awards

1:11 PM

Unlike the majority of red carpet appointments that stars have to keep during awards season, the Grammy's make for one wildly unexpected show. You never know how crazy, how naked, or how meaty (re: Lady Gaga) the looks will be! Read on to see our favorites and, perhaps, what few tweaks we might've made to perk up this rather subdued parade of styles.

BLACK

Sheerly Striking - Beyonce, Meghan Trainor, & Jessie J

Sheerly Striking – Beyonce, Meghan Trainor, & Jessie J

Beyonce – Proenza Schouler – A plunging neckline and sheer panels throughout gave this long sleeve dress an alluring sensibility while a smattering of diamond and emerald jewels rounded out this familiar look from Queen Bey. We wanted way more drama than what we got from she who was nominated for six awards.
