Fashion Week: Models Who Do More

During Fashion Week it’s easy to forget some of the pretty ladies walking down the runway do more than just act as coat hangers for fabulously over-priced garments. That’s why our girls at Glam put together this list of models who do more.

The (oft over-used) term supermodel gets tossed around a lot. But whether or not these catwalk queens have been officially coined with that status, they’re all super in our eyes. Somewhere between strutting down the catwalk in New York and Paris, and shooting high-fashion spreads at some exotic locale in the South Pacific, these beauties have also found time to become social activists, authors, and aspiring actresses–proving that they’re much more than just a pretty face.

The Writer: Alek Wek — Discovered at an outdoor market in London, Alek Wek’s strikingly unconventional look can be found grazing the catwalks of leading designers across the globe. But what has remained undiscovered, is her unconventional upbringing in the south of Sudan.

Crave: Topshop Maisie Satin Frill T-bar Ballet

The t-bar on these ballet flats gives them an old-school Mary Jane vibe, but the satin ruffles totally sex them up. You will live in these shoes because they can be worn with jeans, a T-shirt and a cardigan, but can also be dressed up with a pleated skirt and tie-neck blouse. The feminine details on these shoes aren’t the only things that make them special–they’re available on the Topshop’s U.S. website, which launched this week. [$50, Topshop]

Questionable Guy Trend: The Man Skirt

While we’re still not sure how we feel about men in tights, couture designers like John Galliano, Comme des Garçons, and Etro are putting men in skirts and sending them down the runway. And we’re not talking tribal Scottish kilts here either — a woman could easily wear these duds for dudes. The designer taste makers claim the look of a skirt for men has been catching on all over Europe this past season and now they have been showing off the menswear trend during the Spring/Summer 2009 Fashion Week in New York.

Fashion Week: Never Heard Of Thuy? You Will Now!

Imagine if Barbarella fronted Blondie, dressed in early-’90s Versace and LaCroix. Thuy’s spring/summer collection for 2009 was full of imagination, surprises and precise style. The combination of metallics and bold hues gave a very interesting and almost unexpected look for the spring/summer season. Where as most designers tend to keep metallics for winter, Thuy showed that the rules of fashion were meant to be broken.
