Rosie Assoulin’s presentation had “fun” written all over it–from the fairy lights to the pop art flower earrings, the vibes were clear. And then there were the clothes: Assoulin showed hypnotizing black-and-white-striped evening dresses, wide-legged pantsuits, enormous trumpet skirts, and voluminous bell-bottoms. Instagram was abuzz about the eclectic show, raving that, in the midst of all the cool, clean, minimalism we’ve seen this week, the quirky mix at Rosie Assoulin brought a much-needed jolt to the senses.

Here’s what you missed from the fashionable set on Instagram this weekend: Anna Dello Russo looking more trendy than you, ghoulish make-up, and of course, plenty of chic outfits.
This painting speaks to me.
A “look at my cute outfit / I’m jumping” photo done right.
An enviable Rosie Assoulin dress.
“That’s why her [hat] is so big, it’s full of secrets.”
Most fashionable cake of the month.
Mondays–am I right?!
Art with art.
A very Tim Burton-esque smile.
