“Gossip Girl”-Style Camping At Isaac Mizrahi?

It was the last day of Fashion Week, and despite having to hobble around on heels that made our feet burn, backstage at Isaac Mizrahi’s show was coolishly refreshing. Because Isaac cited “camping on the Upper East Side” of Manhattan as part of the inspiration for his fall collection, makeup artist Val Garland made them…

Make Way For This Model’s Shoulders

So much for shoulder pads going out of style. At the African Collective show, they were very much out in full force. [NYC, 2/13/10]…

Do Not Attempt The Blonds’ Nails At Home

We take it back–technically, you could re-create the amazing nail look at The Blonds’ fun, wacky show, but we would recommend stepping away from the broken glass part. Creative Nail Design nailist Kristina Esterbrooks used CND Coulours in Scarlet Letter, Blackjack and Brilliant white nail enamels mixed with crushed glass and glitter to make beautifully…

Snowboarder Looks Dope At Olympics, Causes Public Outrage

Wow, talk about a case of overreaction. We can’t help but feel a little bad for Japanese Olympic snowboarder Kazuhiro Kokubo. Like many of his youthful brethren, he’s currently sporting dreads and a nose ring (both popular fads in Japan right now), and his style is pretty true of most snowboarders: saggy pants, loose…

Candlelit Beauties At Carlos Miele

Brazilian designer Carlos Miele’s show was colorful and playful, but the makeup was warm and golden and all woman. Maybelline New York makeup artist Gato Ruben Zamora told us he wanted the models — most of whom are teenage girls — to look a little more grown-up, like “beautiful women.” He created a totally wearable,…

At Sophie Theallet, The “Farm Girl Goes To The City”

If you don’t know the designer Sophie Theallet’s name yet, you will. She won a Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund award last year, Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley were in her front row (alongside a gaggle of Saudi Arabian princesses), and influential fashion consultant Robert Burke called her fall runway “the

Please, Do Not Walk TOO FAST!

You don’t think the designers just toss the models out there on the catwalk do you? No, at Max Azria, they give them walking instructions in ALL CAPS. [NYC, 2/16/10]…

Rad Hourani Is Stunning, As Usual

OK, so I’m biased: As someone who wears fairly androgynous black clothes about 350 days a year, Canadian designer Rad Hourani makes the exact kind of clothes I want to live in. But I’m not alone. Yesterday, editors and buyers alike were impressed by the expertly cut, all-black collection of leather, zippers, layered knits and…

Totally Sexy, Totally Wearable Hair At Zac Posen

Backstage at Zac Posen, Odile Gilbert (seriously, one of the most amazing hairstylists of our time) performed a feat by combining urban long hair chic with Posen’s ’40s-inspired collection. “We wanted to create a simple yet sexy look this season that is very wearable,” Odile said. “Zac and I talked about how influential the downtow…

Lipstick Is Key At Erin Fetherston

Super cute Erin Fetherston is one of the sweetest designers I can think of, so it’s no wonder hairstylist Odile Gilbert told me that the designer herself was the inspiration for the hair as she placed blunt bangs — Erin’s signature style — over the models’ foreheads. MAC makeup artist Lucia Pica had another muse…

Prabal Gurung Does The Robot

I ran into MAC makeup artist and our Kiki T‘s pal Stevie Huynh backstage at Nepalese designer Prabal Gurung’s show, and I can’t think of any prettier makeup I’ve seen so far. Stevie was all about creating the most gorgeous skin to match Prabal’s time of the Android aesthetic, and he really did create a…

Cherry Bomb At Yigal Azrouel

While designer Yigal Azrouel’s gorgeous show delivered lots of tough black leather elements, occasionally a spot of red brightened up the palette in the form of architectural dresses both long and short. We found ourselves drooling over this cherry-colored cocoon coat made of yummy cashmere. We’ll take two please.

Nail Polish News Backstage At Costello Tagliapietra

So far, we’re seeing red lips everywhere for fall, but I was especially drawn to the extra sick combination that MAC makeup artist Lisa Butler busted out for Costello Tagliapietra’s Japanese-inspired collection. She blended MAC Russian Red and Lady Danger, two of their most famous Lipsticks with a little Redd Lip Pencil on top for…
