9 Iconic First Lady Gowns Worth Talking About

excuse me, lady, but i believe you have an animal on your head

Kate_comm >> I may be jumping the gun (just slightly) by talking about a trend for fall when it's 100 degrees outside, but I just couldn't resist.  Especially when I saw it pop up atop Kate Moss' head during a photoshoot for a Japanese commercial (left). 

Cos_natThere was definitely a strong Russian influence on the runway for the Fall/Winter Collections.  Costume National, for one, had plenty of tasseled passementerie, luxe furs and velvets, and my personal favorite, the Cossack-like fur toque (above right).  Maybe it's because the hat just looks so cozy, or more likely, in wearing it, I could fantasize about being in my own version of that lovely movie Doctor Zhivago.

Elle_002 I'd be willing to bet that toques are going to be all over the place, come the first freeze, because they're already all over the pages of Elle_001_1 the July 2005 ELLE.  The faux-fur toque on the left featured is...how do crazy kids say it these days? Ah, yes..."hella cheap" ($8 at H&M).  The toque-like hat with the fur Dumbo ears on the right (which is still cute) is not so cheap, but then it has real fox fur ($450 at J. Crew).  Of course, neither are stocked yet, as we are still in...a-hem...June.  What can I say, I like to be on top of things. So, ladies, I leave you with this piece of advice: Come fall, talk the toque, and walk the walk.
