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.

Google’s Yearly Data Proves People Are Dressing Weirder Than You Think

It’s fitting then that Google’s Year in Search data named {indie style” the fashion style term with the highest growth in 2020. It makes a sort of counterintuitive sense: The more we are told to look the same, covet the same items, and worship the same trends, the more unique we become. Other top 10 trending styles include “alt style,” “e-girl style,” and “y2k style,” each prioritizing kooky self expression over blending in. 

The rise of TikTok has certainly helped commodify and codify personal style as something tangible—and changeable—for its users. On the app, every subculture has its own hashtag, and each hashtag seems to come with a wellspring of content defined by a strong personal aesthetic. #WitchTokers can teach you how to perfect your cat-eye eyeliner while learning the significance of certain crystals. #DarkAcademia pairs tweedy blazers with button-downs and Harry Potter wireframe glasses. #EGirls and #EBoys accessorize their

Celine Nails the Way TikTok Is Now Driving Fashion

Earlier this year, my fellow GQ writer Max Berlinger made a genius observation on Twitter, suggesting that designers are so interested in bourgeoisie style right now—culottes, nice blazers, tidy sweaters, and other good taste garments—because the middle class is “quickly disappearing.” Perversely, it’s now stability, rather than opulence, that is aspirational.

For a few years now, Hedi Slimane’s Celine has been the shiny gold clasp on the tasteful handbag that is the bourgeois fashion revolution, and I wondered, as I sat waiting for the video for his new men’s collection to start on Wednesday morning, what direction our fashion soothsayer Slimane might take things. Is being middle class and pouty in a perfect little black suit still the beacon of desire, or has the pandemic made even that dream—and pant-style—feel irrelevant?
