Wellies, The Official Shoe Of Fashion Week?

As NYC’s snowy winter wonderland turns into hellish puddles of slush, Fashion Week goers have a rough decision to make. Give in to the terrors of not-so-stylish wellies and boots or suck it up and wear heels. This morning, as the first brave fashion souls found their way to the tents in Bryant Park, footwear choices were wide and varied. We spotted Anne Slowey of Elle in Keds comfort, while I chose low-heeled OTK black boots and Erin went for Hunter rain boots. Still, a few crazies were wearing towering stilettos. We’re hoping those girls arrived in boots and changed — at least for the sake of their soles. But c’mon, at what point do you just have to give in to the weather and say screw it? Keep reading »

Cushnie Et Ochs Shows How To Get The Modern Romantic Look

The beauty look at the Cushnie et Ochs fall 2010 fashion show in New York was all about edgy romance — an oxymoron, I know, but actually a fitting description. Nothing about the hair and makeup was perfect. In fact, it was downright disheveled. Yet the chunky tendrils and soft smoky eye still evoked a fairy quality. Find out how you can duplicate this easy and fun look that only requires your fingers as tools, after the jump. Keep reading »

How To Wear A Dress When It’s Cold Out

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week kicked off this morning with the BCBG Max Azria show, and personally, I kind of have a soft spot for their presentations because they make highly wearable clothes you can actually (or hope to someday) afford. The show notes for BCBG promised a “techno-age urban journey,” which frightened the bejeezus out of me, but it was really just a fancy way of saying versatile fabrics in neutral colors made for layering. (Sigh of relief.) The girls wore long-sleeve knit shirts and cream leggings under swishy, asymmetrical and color-blocked dresses cinched at the waists with belts. It being winter now, it’s a fun styling trick for us girls who like to wear pretty frocks in the cold weather and not freeze. Throw some geometry and sequins in the mix, like designers Max and Lubov Azria did, and you’re ready to party. (We’re sure front row celebs Michelle Williams and Misshapes DJ Leigh Lezark agree.) Check out a few more looks after the jump. Keep reading »

Richard Chai Love Is All About The Grunge Princess

If you’re not familiar with designer Richard Chai, here’s a quick history lesson: He used to be the design director at Marc Jacobs (ring a bell?), which made perfect sense given he presented a grungy street urchin meets girly-girl collection that reminded us of Marc by Marc in all the best ways. For the Richard Chai Love show, he combined pretty prints with clay-hued separates and baggy skirts and trousers with the waistbands rolled over in a style we haven’t seen since the ’90s. While we won’t be copping the latter look, we were turned on by boyish gray chunky boots, baggy sequin pants under knit layers, and smart wool military coats in olive and chocolate brown. We already knew grunge was back, but from the looks of this updated version, it’s here to stay for a while. Hint: This time around, just pair it with red lips. Keep reading »

Are Arm Warmers The Next Big Cold Weather Trend?

At two different designers’ fall 2010 presentations yesterday, I came across something a little unexpected: arm warmers. Lutz & Patmos featured luxe fur arm warmers (left), and the Falls collection included striped fingerless gloves scrunched around the wrists (right). [And I saw them at Richard Chai Love!--Editor] These could come in handy when you don’t feel like wearing layers of long sleeves under a coat, but what about your poor little fingers? Guess they’d freeze for fashion’s sake. What do you think about arm warmers? Keep reading »

Maggie Goes Back To Her Roots

Remember when we told you that supermodel Maggie Rizer is making a comeback by dying her hair red after Anna Wintour suggested she do so? We spotted her at the Fashion Week tents today, and yeah, looks like she went for it. [NYC, 2/11/10] Keep reading »
