Preppy Marc Jacobs & The Anti-Prep: Kim Kardashian

Marc Jacobs Preppy Marc Jacobs Patent Ballet Flats at Net a Porter

We are ever-so-impressed by a brilliant post we stumbled onto at I am Fashion; it points out a major shift in designs from Marc Jacobs, away from grunge and towards preppy. Yesterday’s post drew our attention to this change and we hopped over to Net-a-Porter to gaze at most of their Marc Jacobs merchandise. All we could say was wow! Now, not everything would fall into a preppy look, not by a long stretch. But the items shown here, and those selected by Barneys Girl over at I am Fashion really point out the change. Great eye!

The Anti-Prep: Kim Kardashian

The Princess must admit being a bit behind the curve on even knowing who Kim Kardashian was, or as I guess is the case, is. Depending upon what your definition of is…izzzz. But her appearance at the WWE (?) alerted us to her, ah… her celebrity.Yes, her celebrity. And then The Princess heard all about a spat between Ms. Kardashian and a previous Anti-Prep Inductee? OMG. Talk about birds of a feather! Does it get any better than this?

“I Love Saks” in Vogue & 2008 Banana Republic Fall/Holiday Collection

In an unusually emotive display making her appear almost human, The Princess begs everyone who hasn’t seen this month’s Nostalgia article in Vogue to run to their closest library or newsstand to read Amy Ephron’s article, “I Love Saks”. The subhead explains “Amy Ephron describes a life spent seeking sparks and solace at the fabled countertops of a New York department store.” It is really a wonderful story, very similar in tone and tenor to My Summer at Tiffany, by Marjorie Hart, so good the Princess calls it Prepalicious! This is the May 2008 Vogue, the one with the much-discussed Gwyneth Paltrow photo on the cover.

Just in case you were thinking about warm weather activities this weekend, looking for the perfect bikini, best books for the beach, we leave you with a reminder of what happens after all that! Here are some fabulous shots of Banana Republic’s 2008 Fall/Holiday collection. We think Banana Republic fans will find favor with most of the looks; there are some fabulous finds in this group! Enjoy!
