Fashion Superlatives

A$AP Rocky Borrows from His Mom, and Yara Shahidi Nails It Again

These were our favorite outfits of the week.

By: Laurel Pantin

Once again, it’s time to reflect on the week that was, and pick our best dressed. Since Fashion Month is the street style gift that keeps on giving, we’ve got an abundance of interesting looks. From Adwoa Aboah in Paco Rabanne to Yara Shahidi in stripes and florals, here are our favorites of the week.


Best Imitation of an Anchovy: Adwoa Aboah

“Because anchovies are silver, right? Maybe? In any case, she looks fucking amazing.” —Laurel Pantin

Best Reminder That Unexpected Pairings Actually Make Great Outfits: Yara Shahidi

“If I came across Yara Shahidi’s striped pants in a store, I’d probably pick them up, but would never think to style them the way she did at Vanity Fair’s Young Hollywood Party. Yara went with a colorful and floral sweatshirt, turning her look more ‘street style’ than simply ‘cute.’ That, my friends, is the difference between a good outfit and a great one.” —Samantha Sutton

Best Example of Borrowing from Your Mom: A$AP Rocky

“Because she still has her prescriptive sunglasses from 1986 and was chic AF in her eggplant-colored everything, but you have to make it more street, so you throw a hoodie in there.” —Noah Lehava

Most Likely to Make Me Wear Color: Yasmin Sewell

Yasmin Sewell is my favorite person to watch during Fashion Week and has been for years. She always looks like she’s having a good time (her smile!) and gets away with wearing capital-F fashion without looking like she’s in costume. And this look—the Balenciaga dress; the Nicholas Kirkwood boots—makes me want to shelve my black turtlenecks and turn up the color.” —Emily Ramshaw

Best High Fashion Makeover Moment: Katy Perry

“I’m personally not the biggest fan of Katy Perry’s sartorial choices of the past, but this romantic rose-printed Adam Selman gown paired with her newly platinum hair and chunky gold jewelry is kind of perfect.” —Alicia Cesaro

Best Nod to Kurt Cobain: Tyler Psarras

“I spied this incredible, holy-shit-I-need-these-now pair of Loewe jeans with gold panelling on Browns last week, and was stoked to see them worn to perfection by Tyler Psarras, their communications director. Between her blond hair and the rounded white (Saint Laurent?) sunnies, it's all very Kurt-Cobain-as-told-by-high-fashion.” — Meagan Wilson
