Revisiting Princess Diana’s Iconic Style From the Fairchild Archives

Princess Diana’s style icon status has persisted long after her untimely death more than 20 years ago and has only continued to increase thanks in large part to the royal’s frequent portrayal in television and film.

There was a resurgence of interest in the princess this year when Netflix’s “The Crown” released its highly anticipated fourth season, which introduced Princess Diana, played by actress Emma Corrin. The season paid homage to many of Diana’s memorable fashion looks, including her famed David and Elizabeth Emmanuel-designed wedding dress from her royal wedding to Prince Charles in 1981.

British model Stella Tennant died suddenly on 22 December, her family announced in a statement this week.

The 50-year-old, who had celebrated her most recent birthday only days before on 17 December, had an illustrious career spanning almost 30 years, after she was discovered during an American Vogue call for “non-models” in 1993.

Her striking looks, including a nose ring, which she refused to take out for the original Condé Nast shoot, soon caught the attention of top-flight designers around the world – most notably Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel.

Tennant quickly became the face of the brand, in what was the start of a long relationship with the French fashion house.

27 Matching Sweatsuits For Living Your Best Stay-At-Home Life

While many of 2020’s most-popular fashion trends don’t feel quite right for a life of time spent at home and social distancing (I definitely won’t be wearing a tailored vest anytime soon…), there is one in particular that I’m currently very grateful for: the matching sweatsuit. As a freelance fashion writer, I’m already a big fan of sporting my pajamas while conducting phone interviews and writing stories from the comfort of my own abode. And, now that all my previously in-person meetings to events and coffee dates have been replaced by virtual Zoom calls, I’ve found myself reconsidering this sleepwear-only WFH wardrobe entirely. Luckily, the sweatsuit happens to be a comfy PJ-adjacent look that’s appropriately conducive for wearing during a day full of important Zoom meetings — aka it’s still just as comfy but more elevated than the aforementioned “I

Miley Cyrus gave her twist on a cheerful look as she joined the NFL Network as part of its Artist Takeover series this week.

Taking to Instagram to preview her appearance, the “Midnight Sky” singer transformed into an edgy cheerleader in a varsity-style latex leotard with matching hot pink pompoms to tout.

Giving the outfit a very on-brand touch, Cyrus then slipped on a set of over-the-knee latex boots; the style came set atop a sky-high platform base with a chunky block heel that appeared to measure around 5 inches in height. The boots also highlight an embellished top panel accented with a coordinating pink band for a pop of color.

Throughout December, Miley has been promoting her new album “Plastic Hearts” across social media in a series of
