Lady Gaga Hides And Refuses To Perform For The Gays

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 »

Are Hipsters Turning Into Prepsters?

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 »

Black Is Back For Spring (Not That It Went Anywhere, Really)

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 »

5 Kind Of Wearable Items From Lauren Conrad’s New Kohl’s Line

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 »

Quick Pic: Attack Of The Semi-Naked Models

Would You Let Your Teen (Or Pre-Teen!) Wear Avril Lavigne’s Line?

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]

What Is Mickey Rourke Doing At Fashion Week?

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 »

Thakoon Spring 2010: MObama-Worthy?

Get First Lady Michelle Obama on your side (or in one of your dresses), and your business is guaranteed to boom. That’s what happened to some of MObama’s favorite labels, like Thakoon. So, is it just us, or does Thakoon’s spring 2010 presentation look like it’s playing pretty hard to attract Michelle and all her fashion fans? (Not that we would blame him! Or J.Crew, or Jason Wu, or … )

One half of the collection took things to a wilder side with mish-mashing prints and loose-fitting resort wear for the jet-set crowd. Yet, the rest of the pieces seemed to directly channel the First Lady’s preferences for floral prints, simple lines of boat necks and long-sleeved shifts, and draped cocktail dresses meant for showing off those famous arms. Think some of these designs have already made their way into Michelle’s closet? [Telegraph.co.uk] Keep reading »
