Saturday marks the third day of New York Fashion Week — and featured shows from Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, Prabal Gurung and tons of others. While we were less than excited about the offerings at Charlotte Ronson (sort of tepid florals in a muted shades), Cushnie et Ochs collection of white, magenta and blue dresses thrilled. Check them out — several other shows from fashion week’s third day, after the jump! Keep reading »
Ah, don’t you just love that weird in-between-seasons weather when it’s too hot to wear pants and too unpredictable/chance of rain-y to bust out the sundresses? Yeah, me neither. With humidity, precipitation, and grey skies hanging in the air, it’s hard to get excited about leaving the house, let alone putting on the clothes required to do so. That’s where fall shorts (in heavier fabrics and darker colors than your typical summer pair) come in — they’re the best of both worlds! They offer prime leg ventilation while still providing the comfort and wind protection factor (WPF) that skirts can’t, and they can be worn in today’s hyper-humid weather as well as tomorrow’s (maybe) cooler breeze: just add tights! Plus, you can dress ‘em up easily. Check out these ten pairs of fall-ready shorts that have already made their way onto my wishlist…
Lana Del Rey is a music-world Svengali and she knows it. There’s nothing I can say about her that somebody hasn’t said already, and better than I ever could considering I’m all kinds of ambivalent about Lana: as a singer, as a performer, as a persona, as a human being (part of me isn’t quite convinced that she’s not computer-generated). It would seem that the songstress has some unexpected fans, however, at British GQ, where she was named 2012′s Woman Of The Year. And, shocker, she’s naked on the cover! The special issue depicts Lana stripped bare save for a face full of dramatic makeup and a body dripping with opulent jewels. There’s something about this first photo that is charming to me — she’s not posing provocatively or vamping it up, and she looks really pretty and totally vulnerable. I also think it’s nice to see that she isn’t whippet-thin and has, like, thighs and stuff. She just looks very soft and not at all like she’s starving. Looking good, Lana! [Refinery29]
This got us thinking about other celebs who’ve bared it all for the sake of a photo spread. Just for fun, we decided to give you a little peep show. Go ahead, look. You know you want to.
Day 2 of New York Fashion Week rolls on. Today, there were new offerings from Thakoon, Richard Chai LOVE, Tadashi Shoji and tons of others. At Creatures of the Wind, the collection had a down home prairie vibe. While at Nicholas K, the clothes were reminiscent of a summer dessert storm. Are we sensing a theme here? Check out those shows, and so so many more, after the jump!

Macaulay Culkin has been off the grid for awhile now, popping up looking sort of frail, which some gossip mongers attributed to a possible heroin addiction, but maybe Macaulay has just been too focused on his art to eat? And by art, I mean the paintings he’s apparently been working on with the two friends in his “collective” 3M. They just debuted their first pieces, among them this portrait of a dog playing poker (top), and another featuring He-Man painting the guys from “Seinfeld” (bottom). That one is my favorite. Also, I would much rather believe that Mac has just been devoted to painting, not shooting up, you know? [Buzzfeed]
Macaulay isn’t the only famous person who has tried his hand at a different creative medium. Plenty of celebs have picked up the palette. Click through to see more celebs who fancy themselves artists.
