This weekend in the New York Times Social Q’s column, a woman wrote in to inquire about how to handle a ruthless grandma who is obsessed with her six-month-old granddaughter’s weight:

Rachel Roy shocked us with one of our favorite shows of NYFW so far. The collection embodies a downtown coolness without being overtly chilly or overly pretentious.

Look, I wouldn’t really eat a cat. Or a cat face. But there are no words for how scrumptiously adorable this little cross-eyed tabby cat is. This is Jarvis P.

Ladies, you thought your underwear was doing its job — keeping your precious lady bits in place, modestly covered and safe from the elements. But you were wrong!

Swagger New York and Italian designer Michele Morricci came up with a bizarro collaboration: fantasy illustrations detailing what some of our fave cartoon characters might wear to New York Fashion Week, and man, is it weird.
