Dear Parents, Please Stop Taking Your Miserable Kids To Fashion Shows

This season’s hottest accessory is something that I don’t know because I’ve paid zero attention to Fashion Week, thanks to all these dumb parents who can’t keep their squalling infants at home. First, North West cried at her dad Kanye West’s fashion show, while sitting next to Anna Wintour, who was not having it. Then,…

More Amazing Hair From London Fashion Week

We love looking at all the crazy fashions on display at fashion week, but sometimes the hair is even better. While designers like Sister by Sibling and Louise Gray took their fashion show hair to a crazy place, we also loved the more reserved and retro-inspired looks on at Burbery Prorsum and Alexander McQueen. A…

The Couture Collections Are Here! Our 27 Favorite Looks From Day One

I love fashion, but the Paris couture collections make me absolutely giddy. These collections celebrate fashion as high art, and present frothy, impossibly constructed delectable creations that make grown women salivate. Of course, couture gowns cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands, so we won’t be buying one anytime soon, but that doesn’t mea…

A Video Of Models Falling On The Runway

Sky-high heels and platforms, tight or long garments, and a slick or coated catwalk can all lead to a hazardous runway and painful falls for models. “Fashion Television” compiled this video of models falling. Sure, it may look funny, but imagine if your occupation required you to put your body in this much…

Taking Fashion To New Heights—Literally

Holy models scaling buildings! And here you thought being a model was a luxurious job where all you had to do was sit around looking pretty. For the beginning of High Street Fashion Week in London, ladies in designer goods participated in a “vertical fashion show,” seductively sliding down Oxford Street buildings by harness and…

Victoria Beckham: “Most [Models] Are Naturally Thin”

Can anyone keep Victoria Beckham’s body image philosophy straight? She seems to constantly flex between opposing contradictions. One second, the media is calling out her anorexic-seeming lifestyle and the next she’s quoted as being pro-curves. To be honest, our opinion of Beckham wavers as well. Sometimes she frightens us with her so-thin physique that’s nearly…

Backstage At The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

We have to wait until Dec. 1 to see the full insanity of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but this teaser is totally making us want to tune in. Seriously, who can say no to a bevy of insanely hot girls (one of whom brought her puppy!), the unprecedentedly minimalistic wings, and fancy…

Naomi Campbell Has A Kind Of Awesome Side

For once, controversial supermodel Naomi Campbell is making headlines for something other than cell phone beatdowns. I don’t know how long she’s been involved in charity work (maybe it’s been overshadowed by her more notorious exploits), but evidently she visits Africa often and is the global ambassador for the White Ribbon Alliance, an international coalitio…

It’s Baaaccckkkk: How To Style The French Twist

Just when you thought ’70s and ’80s hair was dead and gone, the fall 2009 runways up and resurrect those looks. Spotted on the Brian Reyes runway was the one and only French Twist! But, before you skip the rest of this post and head on to the next, hear me out: This fall’s versio…

Ever Wonder What Editors Fashion Show Notes Look Like?

Editor Glenn O’Brien (once of Interview magazine, Rolling Stone, High Times and now a blogger on men.style.com, among other endeavors) let’s us in on his mostly nonsensical, sometimes hilarious notes (he actually uses the word “ass plate” in descriptive terms) from the last ready-to-wear shows in Milan and Paris. The scribbles were mostly made i…

Quick Pic: Matching Hair

At today’s Christian Lacroix Haute Couture show in Paris, models wore polka dots, lots of tulle, and braided buns. In an interesting twist, their hair coordinated with their outfits. Now, my older sister painted her nails every single night for a year so they would coordinate with the next day’s outfit, and that was a…
