Narciso Rodgriguez Could Design Line For eBay

Most designers wouldn’t touch eBay with a ten-foot pole because the online auction site routinely makes counterfeit pieces available to the public, but Narciso Rodriguez seems ready to take a chance. He’s in talks to design an eight-piece collection for eBay. The prices will range from $75 to $350, which means we common folk could possibly afford it, but the lower-priced line would also improve eBay’s reputation in the fashion world. Thoughts?

How To Get Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. Beauty Look

When it’s time to put together the look for a L.A.M.B. fashion show, the beauty team not only looks at the collection for inspiration but also its designer, Gwen Stefani. We were backstage at the show and learned quite a bit about how to create hair and makeup that can hold its own against the in-your-face, street-chic L.A.M.B. clothing. A girl can’t be noticed only for her outfit — her mug has to get the same attention, right? More, lots more, after the jump. Keep reading »

Tough Girl Makeup At Prabal Gurung

Prabal Gurung showed his first collection in February (before that he was design director at Bill Blass), but his name is on everyone’s tongue this season. Not only was he quoted in today’s New York Times article about getting into the fashion biz, but Rachel Zoe tweeted last night that she was wearing one of his designs. We got to peek backstage as the models were getting prepped for the show, where it was all about bringing out the inner bitch. Keep reading »

Crave: Kairos Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio

Back in the day when we had severe acne, our dermatologist would tell us to keep our hair off our faces after he prescribed topical meds and antibiotics. We walked around with a ponytail for about two weeks before realizing that if we stopped using pore-clogging hair products we could let our hair down. Too bad Kairos’ Acne Care hair care line wasn’t around then because it could have helped us fight acne while keeping our hair looking perfect. The trio of products includes shampoo, conditioner, and an oil-clearing treatment, but Kairos also sells styling gel, hair spray, and hair glue that promise to pull double duty — healthy hair and clear skin.

Quick Pic: Do I Make Myself Clear?

This “Emperor’s New Clothes” kinda suit was tailored by tree huggin’ fashion hippies EcoGir. They showed off their wares in the streets of Manhattan today. There are so many reasons why we can really get behind this ensemble made from 100 percent recycled material. Hey, while we’re at it, we’d like to re-use the model too. [NYC, 9/10/09] Keep reading »

    The Inside Scoop On Vena Cava


    We were backstage at Vena Cava‘s spring 2010 show today and you can’t tell from this Teen Vogue video but the scene was downright exciting since the show kicked off MAC & Milk’s new partnership. (If you hadn’t heard, MAC, which used to sponsor makeup at the Bryant Park tents, decided to go rogue-ish and strike up a deal with Milk Studios — which is where anybody who’s anybody in NYC fashion shoots their magazine editorials and advertising campaigns.)

    10 DIY Style Tricks You Can Pull Off With A Sharpie

    Sharpies aren’t just for labeling your freezer bags anymore, kids. So hot right now Vena Cava designers Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock actually use them all the freaking time: “Last season we showed a number of ‘gunmetal’ lace pieces—which was actually gold lace completely Sharpied to look silver. Our intern deserved a trophy for that one. We also enjoy using Sharpies to deface silks, t-shirts, khaki from the Gap, AND—coming this November to a retailer near you—high top Converse.” After reading about their liberal use of everyone’s favorite black permanent marker we got to thinking: There are loads of style tricks one can accomplish with the help of a sharpie, like … Keep reading »

    LED Lights Are A Bright Idea For Jewelry

    Plain old gold and silver are simply not bright enough for product designer Alison Lewis. She prefers that her jewelry has a near-blinding quality to it and, thus, she relies on LED lights. We were a bit skeptical about the uber-light that adorns most of Alison’s work, from paintings to pillows and pretty much everything in between. But her glowing LED necklace is definitely growing on us. It satisfies our dual interest in cool accessories and semi-closeted dorkiness, which can be a big challenge. Few and far between are the crafty ladies who dig tech and fashion. For being one of them, we salute you, Alison. [The New York Times] Keep reading »
