Snakeskin style

Natalia Vodianova rocked these Stella McCartney snakeskin pants.  Her look screams, “I’m comfortable, yet well put together.”  Still bitten by the snakeskin trend, I just picked up Style Stalker’s venom harem pants from Karmaloop.

FOR JAPAN WITH LOVE

As a day of respect and to acknowledge the devastation in Japan, I’ll be uniting with bloggers from around the world in a day of silence tomorrow, March 18.  What that means is StylewithBenefits will be dark tomorrow, as in no tweeting, posting here or updating my Tumblr. It’s a day to remember the victims and also raise awareness for how you can assist by making a donation to ShelterBox.

ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. To learn more, please visit Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged.

If you follow models and save model off duty photos like it’s your job, then Bonae’s Blog is a must-read.  Snapping models during NYFW and dishing on those he photographs, you need to bookmark his site STAT.  Make sure to also follow him on Twitter as he’s incredibly sweet when you tweet to him!

Sorry for the lack of updates this week, but as you know, I’m gearing up for WWDMAGIC, PROJECT and Capsule Show in Las Vegas.  Mel and I leave tomorrow but I’ll update with one more post later today before the influx of show posts begin.

Thanks so much for bearing with me!

Aside from Cindy, Claudia and Naomi, when I hear the word supermodel, Kate Moss automatically pops into my mind. She’s had one helluva career — bumps and all — and you can’t help but admire that she’s managed to stay relevant and muse-worth today. Now that’s timeless.

Cheers to your 37th birthday, Kate!
