Fashion Week won’t roll around again until next September, but the people over at 505 Games are hard at work on a video game that simulates the experience for peasants like us who won’t be sitting front row inside those hallowed tents. With a little help from IMG and uber-famous makeup artist Pat McGrath, 505 will be putting out a video game for iPhone, Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony consoles that promises “a true insider’s point of view.” Keep reading »
Here’s looking at you, kid. This model wasn’t crying when she paraded down the runway during Milan Fashion Week wearing this surrealist-psycho ensemble designed by Madrid’s Agatha Ruiz de la Prada — or, heck, was she? It’s impossible to tell with that giant eyeball she’s wearing on her head. Who knew cyclopses were the new black? And if that skirt’s not sexual, I don’t know what it is. Or, you know, maybe that’s just me. Of course, this frock wasn’t the only crazy creation the Spanish designer concocted for her Fall/Winter 2009 line. There’s the baguette hat, the trapped-in-a-birdcage exoskeleton, Rainbow Brite Chewbacca, and, I don’t know, this chick just looks like a hedge. [China Daily] Keep reading »
WWD revealed on Friday that Dsquared2 has created the wardrobe for Britney Spears’ Circus tour, which kicks off tomorrow in New Orleans. The label, which is designed by Canadian brothers Dan and Dean Caten, has been associated with tabloid queens before (Jessica Simpson, Fergie, Rihanna), and their Fall 2009 collection seems to reflect the starlets that wear their designs. The clothes hold a strong resemblance to what Mary-Kate Olsen might wear on a trip to pick up a tall sugar-free vanilla non-fat extra-ice blended latte at Starbucks: plaid shirts, lots of layers, ripped shorts, loads of bracelets, a huge bag, and big sunglasses. Isn’t it nice that the designers made their “Starlet Trash” look authentic by accessorizing with ‘bucks cups? Keep reading to see another photo from the show. Keep reading »
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 “Batman and Robin.” Anyway, would you paint your nails like this? Keep reading »
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 it and landed on the runway, but there have been a few close calls: a trip at Vivienne Westwood, a removal of shoes at Ely Kishimoto, and a slo-mo walking style at Basso & Brooke.

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). While live music was a huge trend for Fall 2009 — Zac Posen had the 5 Browns playing five Steinway pianos on his runway, and Lissy Trullie and her band rocked Phillip Lim’s show — there were still awesome tunes blaring as models stomped down the runways last week. After the jump, listen to 15 of our favorite songs playing during New York Fashion Week. Keep reading »
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. Among our favorite baubles in the show were the Celia entangled chain necklace ($465) and the Jacinda ring ($82), which models wore on three or four fingers. While this was DanniJo’s first official fashion week, it’s not the line’s first fashion show. Remember Jenny Humphrey’s guerilla fashion show on “Gossip Girl”? Well, Little J’s designs were paired with DanniJo necklaces!
