It's official: fashion is a bully. From Carrie's S&M-esque Dior sandals, ubiquitous in the SATC movie, to studded cuffs and shoulder-padded jackets, the current trend is FIERCE!

Photo above from the New York Times Pulse online: Rodarte cat-claw gloves, $500 at Colette in Paris and Dover Street Market in London. Mara Hoffman hand-crocheted cover-up, $400 by special order, (212) 505-3020. Bernhard Willhelm by Linda Farrow sunglasses, $150 at Oak. Peaked-shoulder jacket, $1,395 at Maison Martin Margiela. Givenchy gladiator boots, $950 at Edon Manor. Padded silk radzimir top, $3,250, and lace-up pants, $2,975, at Balenciaga.

At upper left: Alessandro Dell'Acqua moiré stiletto with PVC, patent leather and astrakhan detail.
At right: Yves Saint Laurent steel bracelet. Note: best when worn in pairs - one on each wrist, a la Wonder Woman!
