Poll: Would You Wear This?

One of the beauty trends at New York Fashion Week was the reverse French manicure, where the moon, rather than the tip, is a different color from the rest of the nail. You might not remember this unless you're a Batman nerd like me, but Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) had nails like this in "Batma…

The Wobble-Inducing Heels Of London Fashion Week

We just go from one city's fashion week to another's, and right now designers are showing their Fall 2009 clothes in London. Unlike New York Fashion Week, where the heels seemed lower than usual (except for at Herve Leger), the shoes of London are tall and predominantly platforms. So far, no model has totally bit…

Fashion Week isn't just an event for seeing next season's clothes and spotting celebs sitting front row. It's also one of the best places to hear new music (and remember songs that you'd long forgotten).

The Jewelry Of New York Fashion Week

Just as you probably don't leave the house without adding at least one bracelet, ring, or necklace to your outfit, fashion designers don't let their models walk onto the runway un-accessorized. At the Trovata show on Tuesday, tailored-yet-casual-and-effortless clothes were accented with jewelry from the year-old line DanniJo, designed by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder.

As Markets Fall, Heels Get Lower

While models stumble and tumble while strutting the runway in Fall 2009 shows like Hervé Léger, a few smart designers and fashion insiders are forgetting all about gorgeous-yet-painful high, higher, and highest heels and opting for more sensible shoes. Have they finally grasped that on the whole, people have less money to spend and need…

Quick Pic: Models, They’re Just Like Us!

Ways in which models are like normal people, as illustrated in this photo: 1) They drink regular Coke. 2) They have iPhones. That is all. [Backstage at Tracy Reese, New York Fashion Week, 2/16/2009]…

Ashley Dupre And Kelly Cutrone Are A Match Made In Reality TV Heaven

Who sits in the front row at a fashion show is a big deal. It demonstrates to everyone what kind of people the designer appeals to in addition to what big names support the label (however, a lot of times designers pay celebs to stud the front row). At this season's New York Fashion Week,…

Is Pink The New Black For Men?

For the most part, men have three color choices when it comes to suits: black, gray, and navy blue. They've been able to expand their shirt and tie options from the traditional white, blue, white and blue striped, and white and blue checked over the years, and perhaps the increase in popularity of golf and…
