Now that’s a mirror image if there ever was one! Julianne Moore hit the front row at Reed Krakoff with her absolutely adorbs 11-year-old daughter, Liv, in tow, and aren’t they quite the pair? Not for anything, but Liv might be giving little Harper Beckham a run for her money in the cuteness stakes this New York Fashion Week…
Gorgeous clothes, tons of parties, star sightings city-wide — what’s not to love about Fashion Week? Well, the prices, for one thing. We might fall madly in love with a dress right off the runway, but we’d be mad to shell out $3,000 for it, no? That’s why we’ve taken to the Internet in search of our favorite catwalk trends on a waaaaaay more reasonable budget.
Today, we’ve got a look straight off of the Jenny Packham Spring 2013 runway show. This maxi skirt plus blouse look has a mega-romantic vibe that we’re craving. Keep reading »
Hi, my name is Katie and I’m addicted to leather. But seriously … the fact that leather is SO in this fall and that it’s coming back for more next spring, at least according to what we’re seeing on the NYFW runways, might be a serious problem for my bank account.
Despite the fact that every time I purchase something leather, I think about Ross Gellar’s’ pants on “Friends” (“The lotion and the powder have made a PASTE!”), I can’t get enough. The two looks above were seen on the catwalk this NYFW and I can’t decide which I prefer.

We’re coming to the end, almost, of NYFW, believe it or not. It whipped by us at a breakneck speed, bringing all the high fashion dramz, celebrity fashionistas and completely unwalkable heels to Lincoln Center. There’s still a buttload more to look at, though, so before you say your final farewells to the madness, take a look at the latest shows from Day 6 of fashion week. First up: Frisky favorite, J. Crew, whose preppy chic looks popped on the runway.
Check out more from Proenza Schouler, Jenny Packham, and Marc Jacobs, after the jump!

While Frisky readers know me from my occasional “What Are We Wearing Today” posts when I was one of The Frisky’s marketing interns, I actually lived a double life this summer. Twice a week, I headed into The Frisky’s office for some Google Analytics and design shenanigans, while the other three days I spent trafficking samples and learning the ropes of the fashion world at up-and-coming fashion brand Nonoo. It was an incredibly exciting summer for Nonoo (their runway show is pictured above) — the brand was declared a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist in July, and I was lucky enough to be a part it.
I was even luckier to get to leave school in St. Louis in order to fly back to New York for a weekend (thanks Mom and Dad!) to attend Nonoo’s first-ever runway show for NYFW. So on September 6, I made an attempt to look runway-ready and headed into the city for the Nonoo show. But while I knew all along that it was going to be weird, I hadn’t realized quite how surreal it would be to experience the ultimate fashion scene as someone who really has no idea what they’re doing. Get the scoop on my New York Fashion Week craziness in GIF form…

As if fashion week weren’t problematic enough, what with the parades of drastically thin models and shameful lack of racial diversity, now a plastic surgeon has set up a runway next to the tents at Lincoln Center to stage a show of his “designs,” AKA cosmetic surgery patients, AKA human beings. Yep, the show was called “Faces Of Beauty” and featured 50(!) of the doctor’s former patients strutting the catwalk while photos of their former noses, foreheads, and chins were displayed on monitors behind them. “There are lot of trends out there. One is the clothes you wear. Another is the face and body you wear,” says the surgeon, who I’m not going to name because I don’t want to add to his Google hits. “Just like Ralph Lauren introduces his new line, what I am introducing is aesthetically pleasing plastic surgery.” Just overlook the minor detail that Ralph Lauren’s fabrics of choice are cotton and silk, while this dude’s are cartilage and flesh.

Many fashion week runway shows are based on some kind of abstract concept or even a dream the designer had. Sophie Theallet’s runway show seems to be based on a recurring dream of mine where I go out in public in a sheer shirt and forget to wear a bra. Oops!
Where most of New York Fashion Week’s entries are respectable, predictable sportswear (Donna Karan) or fluttery feminine gowns (Zac Posen), there’s always one kooky dude you can count on to really blow the whole thing out. Thom Browne’s menswear collections are the epitome of preppy eccentric (though sometimes his menswear runway shows can be pretty wild). But his womenswear? Now that is some crazy stuff.
He’s sent lobster ladies down the runway, and postmodern space ensembles dominated his Spring/Summer 2013 collection. His latest collection seems mega-inspired by Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo, who relishes in creating looks that defy not just expectation, but anatomy. We love how this simultaneously plays with form and references traditional and restrictive Victorian styles.
Plus, he’s one of the few designers who really believes in putting on a frickin’ show. And for that, we applaud him.
