We’ve got to admit that the gang over at Refinery29 has got us beat these days when it comes to borderline creepy love of footwear. While we’ve just been obsessing about shoes online, they’ve been tracking the best ones down in real life, too. And what better time to stalk hot shoes than during Fashion Week, when the stylish masses congregate in a few different spots around the city? Looking for badass shoes at a Fashion Week party is like spotting a douchebag in a club: easy as hell. Reap the rewards of their stalking here. [Refinery29]

Porn king Ron Jeremy has been spotted at Fashion Week checking out the hottest … clothes? Is this part of the adult entertainment industry’s plan to diversify in the recession? [Tadashi, New York City, 9/15/09] Keep reading »
The rise of teen fashion blogger Tavi
continues! And recently, her progress in super-smart-style-awesomeness has multiplied exponentially thanks to her cover on Pop magazine
, and now her blogger participation at Fashion Week
Think all the glitz and fame is going to her head? Teen Vogue caught up with Tavi for a quick interview, and it warmed our hearts to see how humble and independent she remains. Especially when it comes to her outfit—a Miu Miu top (sent by a reader … jealous) with “something that was my mom’s” over it, and then a DIY headpiece made out of guitar straps. Wearing crap on your head, people. It’s in. [TeenVogue.com] Keep reading »
The pants-less one is making it very hard for us to stay obsessed with her disco heaven. After making the fashion crowd wait around at Hiro for what felt like hours, Lady Gaga finally took the stage at the Marc Jacobs after-party late into the night and played for 10 minutes. Yes, only 10.
For round two of her Fashion Week appearances the following night, Out magazine not only honored her with a cover of their September issue, but an entire party at The Box. A line around the block greeted revelers, but by 9:30 the doors were closed and inside was a hot, sweaty dance party, filled to the brim with boys in all states of undress and dance moves. Between the Veuve Clicquot and 10 Cane rum drinks, everyone was having a brilliant time, enjoying dance-offs and Fashion Week chats. Slowly, the crowd began to dwindle and the buzz flew from the air as it got later and later. Chants of “Gaga!” started and stopped, to no avail. It goes without saying that it takes a lot for the crowd at The Box to stop dancing. But when a party starts at 8 and the main attraction hasn’t shown her face by 11:30, well, let’s just say that’s when the disco died.
Then, all of a sudden … Keep reading »
This is the leaked cover for the sophomore album from Vampire Weekend. The record is set to be released to the peeps in January, but the image is already shaking things up. Is this Ralph Lauren casual polo look going to come back? Are we going from skinny panted punks into pleated khakis? And is that a popped collar? So rock ‘n’ roll, dudes. But alas, the VW are trendy tastemakers. Will their cover chick create the next It Girl style? The other trends from the ’80s have come back — all that’s left is the yuppie. But still, this top, like the title, is totes contra. Are y’all ready for the prepster? [Pitchfork] Keep reading »
We all just dodged a fashion bullet—black is the new black for spring 2010. Deep breath. OK, yeah, you would have worn black whether it was anointed “in” or not. But if you think about it, this declaration is really going to save us all a bundle of cash. Picture any fashionable chick—she wants to look even a little bit with it; so what does she do? She buys a few pieces that are in the color everyone is talking about. But not this year, oh no, she doesn’t have to buy a thing (well, ideally, anyway!) because she’s most likely got 40 percent of her closet devoted to black pants, dresses, tops, you name it. Rejoice! However, not that we’re pushing you into the stores, if you are looking to drop some dough on a black something, here’s what to look for. Keep reading »
Lauren Conrad‘s latest attempt at designing clothes, called LC Lauren Conrad, is now available exclusively at Kohl’s. We weren’t fans of Lauren’s first try since we abhor jersey fabric, especially when it’s priced a gillion times higher than Forever 21, but some of these new clothes aren’t bad. After the jump, the five pieces from LC Lauren Conrad that we might wear (though we’d have to lie about who designed them). Keep reading »
To celebrate the launch of their “New World Order” line of lingerie, Agent Provocateur deposited a fleet of underwear models wearing leather, thigh-high boots in front of the department store Selfridges and managed to literally stop traffic. Wonder why? [9/16/09, London] Keep reading »
Avril Lavigne has a clothing line called Abbey Dawn. Oh yes, it is true, and she showed it off in all its Hot Top-erif-ic glory at New York Fashion Week. How she managed this, we do not know. Chock-full of “punk rock” plaids, tulle skirts, bad-girl pink prints, and graphic t-shirts, Avril says of the collection: “I’m making sure that I think people in their 20s are going to wear it because it’s going to be a sexy fit, not just, ‘Oh, T-shirts and hoodies.’” Eloquently put, Avril.
As it were, it looks like the pop-punk musician’s fashions aren’t really targeting a 20-something mature audience but rather teens (through its cheap prices and national availability at Kohl’s) and even pre-teens. The second part of the collection showcased fashions for juniors with 12-year-old models strutting down the runway in ripped jeans, school girl skirts, and thigh-high athletic socks. Just say no children! A few more pics after the jump. [Daily Mail]

Fashion Week is not all about the clothes, people. It’s prime celeb-stalking territory, as everyone from Solange Knowles to Rachel Bilson attends the shows at Bryant Park to show support for their favorite designers. Every season it varies — which designer will bring in the most Hollywood power. One season it was Rock & Republic, while another it was Miss Sixty. Marc Jacobs, on the other hand, tried to go the no-celebrity route this year, though Madonna and Lady Gaga were in attendance for his spring 2010 collection. Keep reading »
