Does everyone remember the skulduggery of last winter? It started way back in 2005, and slowly diffused its way down to become a A/W 2006-7 trend over here in australia, culminating in a copy of that Alexander McQueen scarf in every high-street store from Sportsgirl to Supre.
So everyone got over stars, moved onto summer and fluro. It seemed like summer would never end, but with the last few weeks of cold weather, its clear that Winters back , and so are this years on-everyone trend: stars.
Stars have been lurking around runways for a few seasons, but have only recently begun to really show up on the street. Chanel did stars in a subdued manner, with tiny white stars awash on a background of navy blue - reminiscent of the stars and stripes perhaps?
Yves Saint Laurent used stars from top to bottom
Miumiu had it going on in 2006 with their gorgeous star print dresses (drool)
and then finally:
Of course once Kate Moss stepped out in stars, the seal of approval was stamped on this particular trend. Although stars haven't shown up in the trend-based shops yet, Bardot has gotten a head start with their star print pleated pussy-bow blouse (two trends in one!) available online here
