Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony at Dover Street Market

Chloe Sevigny’s unisex collection for Opening Ceremony debuted this Sunday, to coincide with London Fashion Week.

The actress named fashion designer Miguel Adrover as one of her influences, along with gay lumberjacks, preppy New England and English punk. Sevigny is known for her offbeat fashion sense, adding: “I love pouring my creative energy into fashion during my downtime.”

Gallery: Noel Fielding, Dizzee Rascal and The Cure at last night’s NME Awards

Even though he hasn’t had a hit album or ever appeared on Top of the Pops, Noel Fielding seems to be as much a part of the NME awards as booze and backstage brawls. He showed up to last ngiht’s event in a fetching pair of silver boots, but never fear some of the other stars made a pretty good effort too.

The Guardian’s Alexis Petridis tries out the Mark Ronson look

Who’d a thunk ol’ Petri Dish was on You Tube?! Well here is showing us how to dress like Mark Ronson.

This seems to consist of a Specials-lite look of Ray Bans, retro jacket and pork pie hat. The respected music journalist doesn’t always hit the menswear mark, but to his credit he is self-depreciating enough to be loveable… Give it a watch!

New York Fashion Week: Tim Hamilton A/W 2008-9

Effortlessly cool is not really a phrase you want to bandy about recklessly but Tim Hamilton’s show had cool in spades.

Featuring everything a man could want from a wardrobe, neat tailoring teamed up with quirks like harem jogging bottoms (better than they sound!), jackets with layered panels and zip up ankle boots resulting in a collection that was by no means unadventurous but eminently wearable.

New York Fashion Week: Marc by Marc Jacobs menswear

Piece by piece Marc by Marc Jacobs‘ menswear was nothing spectacularly new but the way he put it together gave it a fresh feel.

The cobbled together chic was reminiscent of his standout womenswear show last season, proving Will’s point that women’s trends often trickle down into menswear a season or two later.
