LA Fashion Week Trend Alert Little Red Riding Hood


Randomly, Little Red Riding Hood made an appearance on the catwalks of LA Fashion Week.

Except, the brave little girl came in the form of tall, beanpole models showing off a Fall 2008 trend: hoods.

Striped cardigans had hoods at the Whitley Kros show (left);2

coats at the Alexis Lamontagna collection came hooded (right);

and one of Octavio Carlin's silk dresses even incorporated the style.

Before hoods signified a laid-back style, now they are a symbol of dressed-up cool.

Come Fall, throwing on a frock with a hood means looking slick and covering up a bad hair day!
