Runway Style Stealer: Contrasting Colors At Jenny Packham

style stealer jenny packham

Gorgeous clothes, tons of parties, star sightings city-wide — what’s not to love about Fashion Week? Well, the prices, for one thing. We might fall madly in love with a dress right off the runway, but we’d be mad to shell out $3,000 for it, no? That’s why we’ve taken to the Internet in search of our favorite catwalk trends on a waaaaaay more reasonable budget.

Today, we’ve got a look straight off of the Jenny Packham Spring 2013 runway show. This maxi skirt plus blouse look has a mega-romantic vibe that we’re craving. Keep reading »

NYFW Day 6: All Of Our Fave Shows (In GIFs!)

j crew nyfw

We’re coming to the end, almost, of NYFW, believe it or not. It whipped by us at a breakneck speed, bringing all the high fashion dramz, celebrity fashionistas and completely unwalkable heels to Lincoln Center. There’s still a buttload more to look at, though, so before you say your final farewells to the madness, take a look at the latest shows from Day 6 of fashion week. First up: Frisky favorite, J. Crew, whose preppy chic looks popped on the runway.

Victoria Beckham’s probably had a stressful week — she’s launched two collections for New York Fashion Week and she has to have sex with David Beckham. (Don’t you feel bad for her?) Maybe that’s why she chose to wear this comically oversized sack dress while out on the town. I do like it, though it seems Posh is almost drowning in it, as if she was wearing her mother’s nightgown or something. What do you think? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

“Clever” Bros Create Terrible Video Sweeping Women Off Their Feet

Not Cool, Bros
Stop Telling Me To "Smile"
Telling women to "smile" at you on the street is sexual harassment. Read More »

Hey bros, you know what’s not cool? When you invade the personal space of women you don’t know by “sweeping them off their feet.” It is really, really not okay, Andrew Hales and Stuart Edge, to surprise a woman by grabbing her physically and immobilizing her. And yet, for some reason, so many of the women in this video seem totally okay with it. I wonder how many women didn’t make the edit — how many times women actually got defensive, maybe even violent, back. Keep reading »

Bar Mitzvah Boy Sam Horowitz Is Having More Fun Than Anybody At Fashion Week

Amazing Bar Mitvah Boy
Now This Is How You Kick Off A Bar Mitzvah!
World, meet Sam Horowitz, the bar mitvah dancing king. Read More »

Sam Horowitz jazz hands-ed his way into our hearts when a video of his burlesque-themed bar mitzvah went viral last month. So it should be no surprise that a kid with that much moxie would show the uptight fashionistas at New York Fashion Week how it’s done.

Sam and his mom Angela attended NYFW’s Helmut Lang show, and sat along Taylor Momsen (remember her?) and Stacy Kiebler. He wore black leather pants and an animal print blazer.

“He loves fashion,” explained his mom. “He’s got friends at Neiman Marcus.”

In August, Sam appeared on “Good Morning America” and recreated his famous bar mitzvah dance, with six adult lady back up dancers. Seriously, this kid knows how to live. [Daily Mail]

Yup, Thom Browne Is Still Delightfully Wacky

thom browne fashion week nyfw

Where most of New York Fashion Week’s entries are respectable, predictable sportswear (Donna Karan) or fluttery feminine gowns (Zac Posen), there’s always one kooky dude you can count on to really blow the whole thing out. Thom Browne’s menswear collections are the epitome of preppy eccentric (though sometimes his menswear runway shows can be pretty wild). But his womenswear? Now that is some crazy stuff.

He’s sent lobster ladies down the runway, and postmodern space ensembles dominated his Spring/Summer 2013 collection. His latest collection seems mega-inspired by Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo, who relishes in creating looks that defy not just expectation, but anatomy. We love how this simultaneously plays with form and references traditional and restrictive Victorian styles.

Plus, he’s one of the few designers who really believes in putting on a frickin’ show. And for that, we applaud him.

Dear Patrick Neal Schumacher,

I get it: You were caught between a rock and a horse ride, as it were. You needed to get to your brother’s wedding some 600 miles away, but because your driver’s license had been suspended, you needed to find an alternate means of travel. Planes, trains and other automobiles were apparently out of the question, so you did what any enterprising, horse-owning person might: You decided to traverse the distance to Bryce, Utah, on horseback.

Runway Style Stealer: A Maxi Moment At Tibi

Runway Style Stealer: A Maxi Moment At Tibi

Gorgeous clothes, tons of festivities, star sightings city-wide — what’s not to love about Fashion Week? Well, the prices, for one thing. We might fall madly in love with a dress right off the runway, but we’d be mad to shell out $3,000 for it, no? That’s why we’ve taken to the Internet in search of our favorite catwalk trends on a waaaaaay more reasonable budget.

Tibi’s known for its button-up and polished sophisticated lady clothes — which is why this ensemble from their Spring 2014 collection surprised and delighted me. It’s so laid back, so “off-duty model” compared to what designer Amy Smilovic usually comes up with. And that makes it an easy look to, uh, emulate. (Or okay, fine, steal.) After the jump, we give you all the pieces you need to pull off this look. Keep reading »

Dating Don'ts: Maybe It Is You

“It’s not you, it’s me.” How many times have you heard that? How many times have you comforted a heartbroken friend by telling them that there’s nothing wrong with them, they just happen to have picked a poor partner? How many times have you thought that for yourself?

Here’s a hard truth to learn: Sometimes it really is you. Keep reading »
