The Old Country: Motherland of Style?

The fickle fashion folk can never decide about who they love and who they love to hate. Vera Wang was all but the laughing stock of the Fall 2007 shows last September, but lo and behold, Style.com — brought to you by the meanest of the mean at Conde Nast — is now championing the Vera Wang-designed babushka! Yup, the turbaned, Prada-Orientalist look — what would Edward Said say? — is now out, and the Vera-goes-Russian look is in. We just hope someone tells Vera that Marc by Marc Jacobs was all about the Russian revival this season too. Anyway, those who plan to actually buy into this babushka trend (suckas!) can learn the right way to wear their headpieces in our handy Marc vs. Vera gallery, after the jump.
