Living in a Perfectly Imperfect World

Vogue has announced that this fall - imperfect is in.

Their Style Guide states, "Do you ever see a girl on the street- maybe she's a model, maybe she's just cool-and her hair, tucked behind an ear, in a loose ponytail, or falling out of a low bun, is just right?....That's the key to fall: Real Beauty. That's what we call perfectly imperfect."

Viktor & Rolf were way ahead of this trend with their gorgeous Summer/Spring 2010 line that featured layers of thin chiffon, cut and equipped with holes to create divine imperfections.
