More From Days 3 & 4 Of NYFW (In GIFs!)

Rachel Roy NYFW

Rachel Roy shocked us with one of our favorite shows of NYFW so far. The collection embodies a downtown coolness without being overtly chilly or overly pretentious. In short, we wish we could wear it all, but alas! It’s not in the budget, and instead, we’ll admire from afar. Roy was in good company, too. There were great collections from Alexander Wang, Christian Siriano, Suno and Derek Lam — and you can check ‘em all out after the jump! And don’t forget to tell us who you love, in the comments.  Keep reading »

There are so many shows, and not enough hours in the day to possibly go to all of them. Good thing, then, that we’ve got your New York Fashion Week coverage down. We’re not even half way through day two, and there’s already been nearly three dozen shows. We’ve whittled it down to a few of our faves from the second day of shows. Up first: Rachel Comey, who created a collection exuding her signature downtown cool vibe.

"Rio is a great place to get inspired."

Derek Lam is the latest big name designer to collaborate with Kohl’s as part of their DesigNation project. His bright, breezy spring collection was inspired by a trip to Rio de Janeiro, documented in this video that has in turn inspired me to start frantically checking airfare prices to Brazil. His Rio-ready designs are priced between $36 and $88 and will be available in stores and online April 5th. Can’t wait to check out these pieces in person! [Kohl’s]

New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear: Days 5 & 6

Amazingly, Fashion People were undeterred by the foot-plus of snow we received this weekend, and New York Fashion Week carried on as usual. Total champs — we certainly can’t say the same about our weekend, which we spent contained safely indoors in front of the television. This is just a small selection from the many, many incredible shows that took place over the weekend and into this week. Let’s see what Alexander Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Victoria Beckham, Derek Lam, Zac Posen, and Marc by Marc Jacobs have in mind for the Autumn/Winter 2013 season… Keep reading »

Kristen Stewart and Co. are doing the press rounds for “Snow White and the Huntsman,” so naturally there’s loads of fashion fodder to go around. The cast turned out for a photo call in Berlin today, and while Kristen’s dress was certainly less ostentatious than her risky look for the world premiere, the long Derek Lam sheath she chose was a bit of a deviation from the fashion norm. For me, the pattern errs on the side of Hot Topic, but it could just be the thick chained belt that’s eclipsing my vision. I have to say I love the fit of this dress, and while I’m not usually partial to a checkerboard pattern, I think the edgy look could have worked fabulously on punky Kristen had she shed the wide belt. I know you guys preferred Charlize’s look yesterday, but how is this red number working for you? [Just Jared]

I love Fashion Week, and I love runway show beauty, but not all of it is accessible. It’s not unusual for the makeup at some shows (see: red eyes at 3.1 Phillip Lim) to be utterly ill-advised when taken out of context. I believe that beauty is incredibly personal, and for that reason “runway beauty trends” are kind of moot: as beauty editor Cat Marnell at xoJane put it in her beautifully introspective piece on Fashion Week, “don’t you already sort of know what looks good on you?” Models, who look good in anything, including red eyeliner, whose faces are painted in a manner that complements the focal point, the clothes, should not dictate what makeup you decide to wear. You know what you like: stick to it. Sometimes, though, just as we scurry to replicate a red carpet makeup look we find covetable, and think would look good on us, there’s beauty on the runway that can work for you. If dark, dramatic eyes with a rebellious, middle-finger flair are your trademark, here are three tutorials for you to try.
