The May issue of Harper’s Bazaar is on stands now, and included is my newest Best Dressed column. Who captured my sartorial spirit this month? Well, there was obviously the Rooney Mara moment, which I saw all over both the couture and fall 2012 runways. At those same shows were my two new favorite faces, Cara Delevingne (who we’ve seen pop up a few times already on this blog, both before the Met and at the gala’s afterparties), and Ruby Aldridge. The crocodile leather was another big trend last month, only made more timely by Rihanna’s Tom Ford dress at the Met gala, which I Tweeted about that night. And finally, I couldn’t help but acknowledge the power of Downton Abbey. Michelle Dockery is my new favorite person, and her Lady Mary is my new favorite character. Since this issue went to press, I’ve met Michelle a few times and I can say she’s just as inspiring in person.
