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. As fashion week continues in London, we’ve combed through (get it?) the shows, to bring you some of the best and most out-there hairstyles. Click through to check out the cool locks on display at London Fashion Week, and check back often for more hair updates.
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 danger and you’re told to grin (or scowl) and bear it. Not fun. [The Envy] Keep reading »
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 wire. Some of the models actually had stunt experience, like Amanda Green, a double for Halle Berry, who told Metro, “I’m used to doing big action stunt sequences but the sight of four-inch heels and a five-story vertical catwalk was enough to push me over the edge.”
We hope they got paid extra. [U.K. Metro] Keep reading »
Kiddie line Forget.Me.Not showed at German Fashion Week and blogger Susie Bubble was on hand to capture adorable images of even more adorable kids prancing in cute/silly clothes. Why can’t grown-up shows be this fun? [Style Bubble] Keep reading »
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 alien-like, but at the same time, we absolutely respect the woman’s talent and style and agree that her Fashion Week show was a hands-down success. When Posh went on “The View” yesterday to talk about her work and the fashion industry, she seemed very pro-health: “The CFDA have reached out to designers, stylists and casting directors not to work with underage models, girls that are too thin and to be more ethnically aware. And I think designers are listening. I had a casting last week and had some terribly thin girls come in and it wouldn’t have worked.” This would seem to suggest she’s not into the heroin-chic look. And yet Beckham also said, “Most of these girls are naturally thin. And I don’t think we should be discriminating against someone because they are too thin or too curvy or too large or whatever it is.” Most models are naturally thin? We’re not so sure about that.

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 underwear? Cheesy though it is, the VS show is a pretty fun tradition at this point, and we love seeing a little of the prep work that goes into it. From tables of hair extensions to mounds of body glitter, it’s hilarious how much it takes to make these models look “natural!” Our favorite part though? Makeup artist Tom Pecheux talking about his ultimate show goal: “I want the girls to be like ‘wow, those bitches look fabulous!’” Well, congratulations, Tom — those bitches DO look fabulous.
