It's hard to miss those paparazzi shots of celebrity toddlers being toted around by their famous parents, kids who are dressed, well, to look just like mom or dad. Gwen Stefani's boys sport mohawks, black rocker T-shirts and baggy cargo pants like their dad Gavin Rossdale; Jessica Alba's daughter Honor Warren mimics her mother's frilly, feminine style; and little Suri Cruise seems to love perusing the shoe section at Barneys New York just as much as...

Anyone who has caught a glimpse of the presidential candidates' wives on the campaign trail knows that safe, boxy suits are not in the fashion vocabulary of either the Democratic first lady or the Republican who aspires to replace her. The appearance of Michelle Obama and Ann Romney in similarly full-skirted dresses at the third and final presidential debate prompted two editors at the Atlantic to launch into an online dialogue pondering the abundance...

Cher, who dresses almost exclusively--and albeit scantily at times--in Bob Mackie creations for the Oscars, keeps her reputation for raising eyebrows intact year after year.

PARIS -- Stella McCartney showed her spring-summer 2013 collection at the glorious rococo-style Opera Garnier on Monday morning during Paris Fashion Week. But the clothing on the runway couldn't have been more different from the gilded environs. PHOTOS: Paris Fashion Week trends The scene: Proud papa Paul McCartney was front row, as he always is, along with M.I.A., Jerry Seinfeld and Kate Moss. The look: Masculine-meets-feminine sportswear. Down to earth but special.

Anyone who has set foot in Shareen Vintage, a vast downtown warehouse space lined with endless racks of sparkly cocktail frocks, gauzy hippie robes and an eclectic mix of other garments, will hardly be surprised to learn that the shop's owner, Shareen Mitchell, is starring in a new reality show, "Dresscue Me," premiering Tuesday on Discovery's Planet Green channel. Tall and blond with sculpted cheekbones and an imperious bearing that reflects her Seven Sisters education and thespian training, Mitchell also has a seventh sense for fashion.

Walt Disney Studios is hoping to score a date with an audience it long has found elusive — teenage girls — with "Prom," a coming-of-age story that opens Friday. The $8 million film, among the first to be put into production by studio Chairman Rich Ross, is a more mature take on teen life than the "High School Musical" franchise he oversaw during his tenure at Disney Channel. But in adhering to the family-friendly Disney brand, "Prom" omits the naughtier aspects of the big night, specifically drinking and sex. Some question whether this chaste portrayal will ring true with the teen audience the studio is courting.

Forget for a minute that the collection Betsey Johnson sent down the catwalk here Wednesday night was the exact same one she had already shown at New York Fashion Week less than a month ago. Forget too that the show - scheduled for 8 p.m. -- didn't start until almost an hour and 45 minutes late. While we're at it, let's just go ahead and forget that the Style Fashion Week tent essentially sits on what's probably one of the least glamorous stretches of real estate in the city -- a parking garage roof within spitting distance of the freeway.

PARIS -- An organ solo. A procession of models in short dresses with wispy, wing-like panels pinned at their backs. No doubt, Riccardo Tisci had his Catholic roots in mind when he designed his spring-summer 2013 Givenchy collection, shown Sunday night during Paris Fashion Week. But he was also worshiping at the church of couture, paying homage to the old master Hubert de Givenchy, who founded his French fashion house in 1952. The inspiration: The 1960s Givenchy archives, the traditional dress of nuns and the style of Italian architect Carlo Molino.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaulo Piccioli presented their fall 2013 Valentino collection Tuesday afternoon in the Tuileries Garden during Paris Fashion Week. The look: Elegant simplicity with rich materials from the very first looks, charming A-line black dresses with white lace cuffs and collars. Tough and sweet. (Those sweet-looking dresses came out later in red and black velvet, with laser cut leather collars.) A rounded white cape coat, along with a black leather duffel coat.
