Local fashion roundup

Here's my local fashion roundup, gathering the best in local fashion news on the web for the week:

Love this adorable picture of Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman and Christopher Straub at last night's New Year's Eve Crystal Ball event at International Market Square. They co-hosted the event and showed new capsule collections (which I plan to post as soon as I get ahold of images.)

Check out this clip of Robyne Robinson talking about her jewelry line, Rox. The three-minute short was created by Dale Bluestein/Partnership Media. She talks about her jewelry background and how French women's style have inspired her designs.

The local news anchor and jewelry designer was also listed as one of the 10 Local Celebs We Love This Decade by City Pages. Also included was reality TV star Bebe Zahara Benet, the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race drag queen competition in 2009. But I can't believe they neglected to include Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman and Christopher Straub for their buzz-worthy appearances on Project Runway's sixth season.

Coco and Breezy post a preview of their new 20/20 sunglasses line, composed of eyewear that can be worn two different ways and wrap around the entire head. It's a super-futuristic look for a Tron generation.

Check out my contributions to l'étoile magazine this week, including our local picks for Best of 2009 (featuring the likes of Steve Marsh, Hilary Davis, Anthem Heart, Lookbook and more), my exclusive interview with Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman, and updates to my Post-Holiday Shopping Guide.

My blog covers local fashion photographer Alec Soth's new fashion photo exhibition now at Weinstein, reports on makeup artist Di Medlock's work on Malan Breton's NYE fashion show in New York, posts local electro-pop group Estate's new '80s-tastic video, and local fashion designer Raul Osorio's feather collar.

létoile Creative Director Beth Hammarlund lists her picks in for the top red carpet looks from the past decade, the year's "best nerdery", and comprehensive posts of style muse Diane Kruger's fashions (here and here).

marrina posts images of Rodarte's new t-shirt and sweatshirt line for Opening Ceremony, Lily Allen's recent shoot for Harper's Bazaar Russia, and Amber Rose in Vibe Magazine.

Jane Belfry posts on her blog The Fashion Critic on her take of Minnesota's top models Megan McNierny, Will Defiel, and Mike Elmquist (tons of gorgeous pictures worth checking out) as well as her controversial post on Worst Trends of the Year.

The Examiner's Rob Callahan recaps létoile magazine and Blacklist Vintage's recent holiday party at Rogue Buddha, Jubilee.

My Inner Fashionlogue reviews the recent holiday fashion show at W Minneapolis which I styled, 'Tis the Season to Glitz and Glam, and posts a ton of pictures. Thanks, Lisa!
