Style Notes

From fur to photography—these were our standout fashion moments of 2016.

Just Visiting

Dallas had some stylish guests this year. Here’s who came to hang out and inspire us: Donna Karan, Stella McCartney, Pamela Love, Jake Rosenberg, Goldfrapp, Ally Hilfiger, Shara Nova, Rosie Assoulin, and Tome.

Not A Plain Jane

Fashion multi-hypenate Jane Aldridge ditched her signature red hair for an array of new hues in 2016. From rich dark chocolate to a sandy blond bob with blunt bangs, her ever-evolving locks have made her Dallas’ honorary coif chameleon.


Dallas Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr is known as much for his off-duty style as he is for the moves he makes while donning the white-and-blue. At this year’s NFL Draft, Carr rocked a navy-and-black brocade print suit from TRAFFIC LA and looked like a total winner.

Great Scott

 Moschino’s Creative Director Jeremy Scott’s April appearance in Dallas was both fun and functional. He hung out with collaborator Blake Wright, signed his book at Forty Five Ten, and attended one of Dallas’ best events—MTV Re:Define.

Woah Nelly

An appearance at the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors is a big deal. And the fact that TenOverSix’s Samantha McCurdy styled pop artist Nelly Furtado for both her red carpet and performance in Tome, Maryam Nassir, and Samuji is even bigger.

Fashion at the Museum

From super high-fashion photography at the Dallas Museum of Art (Irving Penn) and the Dallas Contemporary (Bruce Weber) to an anti-fashion exhibit put on by designer- turned-sculptor Helmut Lang, we saw fashion as high art in 2016.

Heart It

Rihanna is the queen of experimental fashion and when she donned this bright Saint Laurent fox fur coat in the shape of a heart thanks to giant shoulder pads and diagonal hem—we were smitten. Forty Five Ten had one of their very own, which sold to one very lucky (yet instantly recognizable) anonymous customer.

Lip Service

Linda Rodin’s hotly anticipated matte lipsticks made their debut in July—and we weren’t disappointed. The 5 shades included a tomato-y red, dusty pink, and berry hue all with a bonus benefit: Post wipe-off, your lips were stained to keep the look everlasting.
