We've been keeping a close eye on the '90s fashion takeover, but the latest sartorial development is a head-scratcher even for us.

Can you close your eyes and imagine yourself: It's this time tomorrow and you're still in your pajamas and you're watching Ellen as you work from home? If you dream it, will it come true? Well, we're believers. And, even though we're not read

The model was photographed leaving her hotel yesterday in super-shredded rag & bone boyfriend jeans, a classic, heather-gray sweater, and a read
