E is for Empowerment

Fashion’s most visionary designers have recently been preaching an overtly feminist message: unapologetically strong silhouettes and a new definition of sexy that takes its cues from gender-bending and hyperbolic, almost subversively feminine looks.

Y is for Yves

Spring 2014 fashion moment: Hedi Slimane for Saint LaurentHedi Slimane is often called the enfant terrible of fashion. One thing is for sure: He’s ballsy.

(It sold like hotcakes.) We predict his edgy rocker Spring 2014 collection will too.GALLERY: 10 most iconic fashion pieces of all time
