Victoria's Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo made two major debuts on Wednesday night in New York City:
- Her brand new athleisure line with Juicy.
- Her adorable little bump!
For the occasion, the mom-to-be took a cue from maternity style master, Kim Kardashian-West, by opting a long coat over a fitted dress. Prinsloo opted for a black satin slip dress (so right now), simple high-heeled black sandals, and a denim duster of her own design, from Behati x Juicy Couture, which hits stores on April 15.
But first, remember how Kardashian-West basically wore a different coat for every day of her second pregnancy?
Heres how Prinsloo rocked the look:
You've got to love that Kim's style even inspires supermodels. She even gave Chrissy Teigen some sexy bump-styling tips.
And here's a look at the model doing double duty, designing and modeling her new collection:

What lasts for 24 hours and promises new levels of wardrobe envy? Not only a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” marathon, but now Kim’s own personal Snapchat account. While you were sleeping, the leader of the pack revealed on her Instagram that she is now among the Snap-iverse (following in baby sis Kylie’s Yeezy Boost footsteps).

Watch for more weirdly entertaining facts about the Kardashians and Jenners.
Kim is undeniably the most fashion conscious of the brood, and this news presents major possibilities and developments for copping Mrs. West’s style outside of her personal app. Think of all the up-close-and-personal outfit shots (including, maybe, those Cinderella shoes?), the many body-hugging black turtleneck bodysuits, and style tips to be offered by truly seeing the world through her Calcutta Gold marble-lined aesthetic. Plus, imagine if #nudeselfiegate took place on the most in-real-time of platforms? If Snapchat’s inherent intimacy will offer an even closer look into Kim’s world (and closet), we’ll be following her story closer than an Adidas body glove on her famous figure.
We're consistently fascinated by women stepping out in real-life Cinderella shoes (i.e., those utilizing plastic and Lucite for a clear, glass-like appearance). Spain's Queen Letizia was the first to show just how chic it can be, wearing her favorite pair multiple times to official engagements where looking regal is expected. Now we've spotted the look on reality royalty as well, with Kim Kardashian West pairing totally clear sandals with a nude bodysuit she wore earlier this month. Prior to that, the unique accessories made an appearance in Taylor Swift's closet as well, and, frankly, with Dolce & Gabbana's fall 2016 collection going all-in on the princess thing, we're just counting the days until we see a street-style star style step out in the brand's take on the iconic slipper. For now, take a peek at how the shoes have been worn so far.
Here is Kim's full outfit:
And here's a close-up of her shoes:
Pop star princess Taylor wore her Cinderella-inspired heels for a party celebrating "Red" back in 2012. The Christian Louboutin slingbacks had a sparkly black cap toe, but the rest of the shoe had the glass slipper thing going on.
Here's the full outfit:
And here's a close-up of her shoes:
While both Kim and Taylor do the look well, we might have to hand the official crown to Queen Letizia, whose elegant Magrit pair actually feel like the real thing. Compared to Taylor's, where the material is a design detail, and Kim's, with a funky shape that feels straight from the runway, Letizia's classic silhouette is clean and could honestly be subbed in for a modern-day retelling of the fairy tale.
Here's the full outfit:

There are two families we can't seem to get enough of: The Crawleys of Downton Abbey and—that's right—the Kardashians. While at first glance, these two bloodlines may seem to have little more in common than their expansive family trees, we can't stop thinking about how similar they are in terms of style. Sure, Lady Mary may choose a mid-length flapper dress while Kim Kardashian prefers a Yeezy bodysuit, but these stylish families are full of fashion twins. As we prepare to bid adieu to our beloved British family (please don't say it's so!), we can still celebrate the fact that we have a real-life equivalent in the Kardashians.
Lady Mary Crawley and Kim Kardashian West:
The leading ladies of their own 30-something generation, it's no surprise that each lady's overwhelming confidence translates into a my-way-or-the-highway mentality that has been so carefully asserted that we can't help but agree with every argument they make—at least until we think better of it. While Mary's love of fashion is asserted through dropped hemlines and blunt bob haircuts, Kim has single handedly brought back the bodysuit and duster coats—with Kanye's help. What's more: Both ladies are likely to find themselves sitting front row to support their favorite designers when fashion week comes around.
Lady Edith Crawley and Khloe Kardashian:
While both girls know what it's like to be the black sheep of the family while their sisters take the reigns (and attention!), they eventually emerged as the ones who, perhaps, knew better than everyone. They wait and watch when it comes to fashion, tackling trends after others have popularized them, but when they do choose to rock that new fashion statement, they look pretty awesome doing it.
Lady Rose MacClare and Kylie Jenner:
Rose and Kylie are the youths of their respective clans and they take full advantage (we'd like to think that if Snapchat were around in the 1920s, Rose would be the first one on board). They march to the beat of their own drum and change their clothing more often than most. While both girls may gravitate towards youthful statement pieces for casual days, when it's time to get dressed up, they look just as sophisticated as their elders in slim silhouettes and simple—yet jaw-droppingly beautiful—styles.
Lady Sybil Crawley and Kendall Jenner:
Though the aforementioned ladies may be stubborn and headstrong, it is Sybil and Kendall that are the true independent of their families. Whether it's attending rallies or flying around the world to open runway shows for countless international fashion weeks, these girls are never afraid of making a statement—especially when it comes to fashion. Not to mention that, nearly 100 years apart from one another, both girls appreciate the power of an awesome pair of pants!
Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham and Kris Jenner:
Both #proudmamas of their respective clans and then some, these women rock the near-impossible job of juggling the many different personalities of their offspring. They often use fashion to prove that, though they may have decades of experience on their daughters and often know best, they aren't too old to relate to the young'uns and show them how it's done. The duo mixes and matches trendy with sophisticated, like topping an embellished dress their daughters may try to steal with a beautiful coat best suited to the matriarchs they are.
Martha Levinson and MJ Shannon:
The momager of the momager, these ladies may not be in the public eye very often but, when they are, they certainly have a zinger or two to share. They've spent a lifetime taking fashion risks and have a deep appreciation for the classics, with a little bit of added flair. Whether it's in leopard or lace, they always look chic.
Watch 13 weirdly entertaining facts about the Jenners and Kardashians.
Kim Kardashian West just introduced the world to her style twin (and no, we aren't referring to Kylie Jenner). Rather, it's Serbian popstar Jelena Karleuŝa. While the two have previously had some fashion-fueled beef—cough, Jelena shared a post last year asking the real Slim Shady to please stand up—all appears to have been smoothed over by the post Kim shared on her website yesterday. KKW addressed the copying rumors, following it up by some quick compliments and acknowledging their shared sensibilities. "Some of our looks really do seem similar. I love her bold sense of style! We're both total glam girls! She seems like a powerful, hard-working woman and I love that. Much respect!" Jelena clearly saw it and acknowledged the love, reposting it to her Instagram page with the comment "speechless."
Now that everything's copacetic, we spent some time studying both women's style to find outfits that were indeed quite similar. They certainly exist, but in cases like this we prefer to trot out the old maxim that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. It doesn't matter who wore it first (or best) because, honestly, both women are owning it.
Come see some of the lookalike looks:

Kim's had a long-running love affair with the bodysuit, including the long-sleeve white style she wore in Paris before getting hitched to Kanye. She paired hers with classic blue jeans, and Jelena showed off a nearly identical look on Instagram, right down to the pointy-toe heels.

Neither ladies are strangers to looks that show a lot of cleavage (and we're wondering whether the songstress knows about Kim's cleavage-taping trick...). Both have worn deep, flat-lined v-neck maxi dresses with sharp shoulder toppers tossed over their shoulders.

Turtlenecks also feature prominently in both wardrobes, but more than that: A full-on monochrome look scores big points too. The ladies have both gone all-white, with shape-hugging pieces that don't necessarily sound sexy, but gosh, the truth is anything but. Jelena is rocking a cage belt that Kim doesn't have, but the high-waisted cut of her skirt paired with the separate top creates the same silhouette (Kim's seen here with Karrueche Tran).
A photo posted by Jelena Karleuša /JK OFFICIAL (@karleusastar) on Jan 21, 2016 at 10:21am PST
Beyond the biggest differences in these two dresses (Jelena's is shorter and a richer emerald shade than Kim's army green), the DNA is basically identical. The Balmain Kim wore to last year's Video Music Awards features sexy lacing at the neck and utility pockets, much like the style the singer chose. Jelena's dress looks very much like a mini sent down the fashion house's spring '16 runway, a fact that doesn't surprise us. The entire Kardashian-Jenner clan are big supporters of the brand, which means the singer likely is as well.
The Kardashian style is everywhere these days—come see what happened when the family's top stylist outfitted Gigi Hadid.
There's no doubt that Kanye West is involved in wife Kim Kardashian West's fashion choices (hello, he made her cry when overhauling her closet). Thanks to a behind-the-scenes peek at his fashion week prep, we now have confirmation that it goes beyond a simple suggestion or outfit tweak. Nope, hubby straight up styles her.
The look he shared on Twitter yesterday looks more luxe than Yeezy seasons one and two, with intricate beading galore and a stocking-legging hybrid that seems to be embroidered with hundreds of pearls. Compared to earlier collections, this should appeal to a different audience (particularly those who want something more clothes-like than sports bras and spandex), though with all the embellishment, we are not feeling positive about the retail prices they'll earn.

Kanye's Thursday show should be different than anything New York Fashion Week has seen before. For starters, it's at Madison Square Garden, a venue that was "always a dream" to Kanye. Tickets were sold through Ticketmaster and, contrary to a Kanye tweet, they're still available for purchase (got a spare $135 to spend?).
One thing that definitely won't have changed from previous showings to this one: The rabid attention Mrs. West will be getting. While this seems to be the first time Kanye has previewed his wife's look with the world, a look back at her past outfits makes it obvious that they weren't ensembles she picked day-of from her own closet. Both looks so mirrored what the Vanessa Beecroft-arranged models were wearing that Kim could've popped up from her seat and joined the line-up.

Get excited, too, because this might be the last season we get a fresh Kim look: Kanye has different plans for next season.
Season 4 I’m only working on kid’s clothing...full time— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 9, 2016
As one of the guests at this week's Makers Conference, Caitlyn Jenner has been speaking out about her early attempts to transition, relationship with family, and...Kim Kardashian West's style. During a Q&A format she accepted questions regarding style and fashion, regaling the crowd with a popular anecdote about how Kim warned her about the importance of a good outfit.
"My daughter Kimberly said, 'Every time you go out, girl, you gotta rock it. They're gonna get that one bad picture of you and they're gonna just work it forever!' I don't know if you remember her, when she was pregnant with the first one, little North, she had this flowery outfit on that went from head to toe," she said. "I don't know, it still pops up its ugly head every once in a while, you know? Actually it's kind of nice."
Assorted headlines are screaming out that there's a major diss happening, but we're reading a little bit more carefully. The full-on floral moment (which included finger-concealing gloves and matching sandals) was a lot, but Jenner's comments weren't her doing the knocking. The dress was so attention-grabbing that it'll likely never disappear from the world of memes and assembled lists—it does indeed keep popping up every now and then.
Don't miss the last bit either. Even if yards of flowers aren't your cup of tea, it was very "nice" in that it was a bold choice that made one woman feel good (in interviews, the reality star stood by the choice, saying "It got a lot of criticism, and I didn't care because I really loved it"). Jenner might not have as much red-carpet dressing experience as the rest of the clan, but this proves that she's already got the most important part down: Dress for yourself and pick something you love.

The star took to Instagram yesterday with a hilarious throwback photo of her and Paris, writing "#FBF to monokinis, belly rings & huge metallic bags," next to the nearly vintage snap. Vintage, of course, meaning glittery, belly-baring body suits, white gaucho pants and huge gilded Louis Vuitton handbags.
This latest throwback comes after an ode to her old Juicy Couture tracksuits Kim posted last week—a style that she wore frequently with Paris back in their heyday. We're not quite sure where all the mid-2000s nostalgia is coming from for Kim, but we're definitely enjoying the walk down memory lane!
From the first peek at Chrissy Teigen's baby bump, it was obvious that the mama-to-be shared the same style ethos as Kim Kardashian West. Last week we realized we were officially in doppelgänger territory, with Chrissy stepping out in a sheer black tank and form-fitting pencil skirt that looked nearly identical to outfits we saw KKW rock while she was pregnant with Saint West.
The friends at the MTV VMAs in August
Thanks to a just-released interview, we've realized that the similar style is no coincidence. Rather, Kim was providing her friend with plenty of maternity style advice, including a recommendation for a piece she lived in while pregnant.
"She told me to go stretchy. I always wanted to be the person who showed off the bump because it looks beautiful and I think you should embrace it," she told InStyle Australia. "Kim does that well and I love seeing that belly of hers and I know Kanye does too—we're lucky to be
with men who find pregnancy sexy."

And about that skirt? It sounds like Chrissy's talking about the Wolford Fatal style that Kim's worn frequently, pregnant or not.
"There's this one Wolford tube dress that you can fold a million different ways. You can make it a skirt, a this, that. I bought it in every color in small, medium, [and] large, in anticipation of the entire process, so I have, like, 45 of them."
We've reached out for confirmation that this green skirt is the Wolford style she's referring to, but it certainly seems to be. When you look at it worn as a skirt, hitting at the mid-calf, it's easy to imagine how it transitions to a dress: Pull it up to chest-level and you've instantly got a knee-length number.
Another maternity style piece Chrissy's been loving? The crop top.

Before athleisure was even a thing, we had Juicy Couture tracksuits. While the matched sets weren't meant for working out, they did tick a lot of the same boxes as our gym-to-brunch togs (high marks to both for comfort and making your butt look good). As such, the aughts' style icons who gave Juicy sweats the big stamp of approval are more or less style savants, a not-so-hard to fathom fact when you remember that Kim Kardashian West, early Juicy adopter, has become one of the globe's most stylish women.
Everything's just come full circle, with Kim posting a throwback image and proudly telling the world that she just can't bring herself to get rid of her suits. "I was so obsessed with those classic Juicy Couture tracksuits a few years ago and had them in every color," she wrote on her app. "I still have all of mine, I can't let them go."

We're with Kim on this one—there are definitely a few pairs of perfectly worn-in pants and zip-ups still hanging around in Glamour staffers' closets. We wouldn't be against scooping up a set now either; pants and jackets are still on Juicy's website (and currently on sale). And while Paris and Kim's take on styling them circa 2006 wouldn't quite feel current, it's easy enough to introduce them to your right-now wardrobe. Substitute flip flops with Stan Smiths and replace the clingy tank with a slouchy linen tee. Skip the statement accessories and oversized shades too; to make Juicy work a full decade later, it's best to keep everything else timeless.
Recently, the tracksuit was anointed into the fashion canon! It's included in an exhibit at London's Victoria and Albert Museum (Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear, opening in April). The specific suit is a bubblegum pink, terry cloth version, emblazoned with "Love P&G" across the back of the zip-up jacket; museum notes reveal it's a 2004 edition.
While we love the idea, we don't need to book a trip to London to check it out. The suit lives on in our memory forever, with visions of its most paparazzi-stalked wearers dancing through our heads. Come take a meandering walk down memory lane with us.
Yup, that's an almost unrecognizable Lindsay Lohan back in 2002 wearing a deep forest green jacket and matching bottoms.
Britney Spears picked a baby blue combo for Valentine's Day in 2003 (noticeably absent: a Starbucks Frappucino cup).
A rich ruby number even made its way into Beyonce's closet. The pop star was photographed wearing the look back in 2003.
Vanessa Hudgens tried the look in 2007, finishing with also ubiquitous Ugg boots.
Miley Cyrus circa her Disney era also rocked the sets, wearing the two-piece look while strolling with mom Tish in 2008.
Eva Longoria was at the height of her Desperate Housewives fame back in 2009 and wore Juicy suits frequently while being paparazzi-hounded.

If you add one coat to your closet this winter, make it a camel one. Simply put, this style adds instant polish to your look, and it will continue to be a standby season after season.
