The Key AW16 Fashion Week Rules From Derek Zoolander

Gearing up for AW16 Fashion Week, but in need of a little prep? Don’t worry, we’ve turned to the King of Style – Derek Zoolander, obviously – to suss out how to stay cool during the most fashionable month of the year. The street style paps may be lurking…

Rule 1: Strike A Pose…

Naturally. Work out your ‘vibe’ before The Sartorialist catches you. Don’t copy Derek though – Magnum was his look. Time to get your own. How about Häagen-Dazs?

Dress your hair…

Rule 2: Keep Hydrated. Essential…

“Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty.” – Derek Zoolander

Rule 3: Don’t Forget The Power Of Print…

Leopard-print rules ALL year round! Who says you can’t double up? Be your own fashion boss and break the rules. We dare you…

Is this too good looking?

 

Rule 4: All White Is All Right (Sometimes)…

Do like Diane Keaton and Derek Zoolander and whitewash your outfit. Take cue’s from TV host and model Laura Jackson recently at the NTA awards. And practically every model on Victoria Beckham’s catwalk last season – white luxe tailoring is a-okay!

Rule 5: Be BOLD with you’re accessories…

Choose your weapon of choice. A chunky chain choker? A tiara (so SS16)? Or extra long earrings a la Celine? Be loud, be proud…you will get noticed.

Rule 6: Red Romance

If you’re out to make a statement in one of the fashion capitals this month, and seeing as V-day is coming up inject some scarlet into your wardrobe.

Rule 7: Shine On

Our love affair with metallic shows no signs of waning any time soon. It worked for Derek in the 00s, and it still does the trick now. Fierce and fabulous…

Star Wars fans rejoice
